Botox, you’ll regret it
What goes up must come down.
Two reports out of the United States today show that botox, the treatment once celebrated for its ability to plump and de-wrinkle a persons face, has joined the list of things now best avoided.
Well, only if you a) want to be able to recognise yourself in the mirror and b) value your natural ability to show emotion and expression.
Sharon Stone told More magazine that she’d turned to botox following her divorce to make herself feel better, but it all ended badly:
“(I thought) nobody loved me - ‘I’m 103. My life would be better if I had better lips.”
But, she added: “(I looked) like a trout.”
And The Daily Telegraph reports Private Practice star Amy Brenneman was put off the treatment for life when she realised she couldn’t move her face.
“What I found bizarre about it was not being able to move my face. And I literally had this thought. If you were a model or socialite, it might work, but I’m literally paid to express complex feelings with my face. So that (Botox) really wasn’t for me.”
