Botox: The Celebrity Beauty Secret that You Can Try Too
Hollywood loves their Botox, but they aren’t the only ones. Every day Americans love the treatment, too. It is consistently the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedure with more than 6.7 million procedures performed in 2014. Does your favorite celebrity love Botox? Let’s find out.
What Is Botox?
Botox is an FDA-approved treatment for lines and wrinkles. The treatment uses an injected form of a purified protein made from botulinum toxin. It relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles allowing the skin to smooth and the wrinkles to fade away. Injections take less than 30 minutes and the results last 4-8 months. After treatment, you can head immediately back to your regular activities; many patients come in on their lunch breaks for Botox injections and return to work immediately after treatment.
Celebrities and Botox
While some celebrities are adamantly against the treatment, many Botox users proudly admit it (and we speculate many use it and don’t admit it). Let’s take a look at a few of Botox’s biggest celebrity fans.
Kim Kardashian proudly received Botox injections on television in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Since then, she’s admitted to using the treatment occasionally, although its speculated those occasional injections are more common than she might admit.
After more than a decade on TV, Kelly Ripa still looks great and she attributes this to Botox. She’s admitted that Botox is one of her favorite products and claims the treatment cuts her makeup application times in half. She even goes as far to say, “Botox changed my life.”
Jenny McCarthy has said, “I tell everyone [about Botox]”. She personally gets the treatment in her forehead and loves that a little goes a long way.
The popular Australian singer Kylie Minogue has admitted to using Botox to slow the signs of aging. At 47, she’s still looking great.
Celebrity women aren’t the only ones using Botox. In one interview, Cowell said, “Botox is no more unusual that using toothpaste.” He reportedly receives injections regularly to keep up his well-known good looks.
