Is this the end for Botox ? Forget all the poison scares and weird looking frozen faces… Botox simply doesn’t make you look good!
After years of Hollywood stars looking so uniformly stretched, with immobile visages, puffy and arched of eyebrow so they no longer remotely resemble their former selves, the Anti-Botox movement backlash is building speed.
Stars like Nicole Kidman, Bruce Jenner, Renée Zellweger — and even that of 27-year-old Lindsay Lohan — have become cautionary tales of overdoing it with the injectable anti-wrinkle poison. And now many celebrities are speaking out about their revulsion for Botox.
Gwyneth Paltrow is definitely not a fan of Botox, because she says it made her look like Joan Rivers!
Emma Thompson says: “Look at me, I’m normal. It’s psychotic to have your body opened up and stuff put in and inject yourself with poisons.”
Machel Shull author of Middle Age Beauty: Soulful Secrets from a Former Face Model Living Botox Free in her Forties says Botox, is for suckers.
Julia Roberts, 46, has dished Botox, saying, “I want my kids to know when I’m happy and when I’m confounded.”
Rachel Weisz has gone so far as to propose that the treatment be outlawed from her profession: “It should be banned for actors, as steroids are for sportsmen”.
Salma Hayek has admitted to being grossed out by the very thought of the injections: “I have no Botox. The thought of a needle coming to my forehead, it really gives me the heebie-jeebies.”
Isabella Rossellini has compared Botox to the painful practice of foot-binding
Meryl Streep says “people look funny when they freeze their faces.”
Women are increasingly rejecting Botox and turning instead to non-invasive, toxin-free, anti-aging treatments that deliver a more natural result.
Avoiding at all cost the frozen appearance, known as “celebrity face” – wrinkle-free but also expression-free.
Experts say “celebrity face” is a common result of doctors over-using Botox on a patient. The results should last up to six months the first time Botox is used, then between six and nine months the second time, experts says. Then, after a couple of years, the results should last for at least 12 months. People who have it two or three times a year are having far too much. This can cause muscle atrophy — a condition that causes the muscle to shrink because it isn’t active — and Botox no longer works as a result.
More and more celebrities and today’s women now want treatments that help them achieve a fresh, radiant version of themselves rather than the frozen look associated with Botox…. Its about time!
