Plenty of celebrities deny that they’ve ever had plastic surgery or facial injections, but with acceptance soaring, many are opening up about what type of “work” they’ve had done and, in some cases, inspiring moderation.
Actress Courtney Thorne-Smith, the face of a new media campaign for Botox, discussed her use of the injectable with People, stating that she has been using the product for years with “full expression” and individual character. To minimize lines and avoid that frozen look, you may want to consider using less of the product in shorter intervals, experts say.
“The best way to use Botox is to use a smaller amount in certain areas so that they can still move (such as your eyebrows),” says San Francisco and San Carlos, CA, dermatologist Marie Jhin, MD. “Less is more in many cases. This would mean doing Botox a little more frequently, such as every three months versus four to five months.”
In the newest issue of Elle, Michelle Pfeiffer says that she is not opposed to plastic surgery in its entirety, but there is definitely a limit. “When people don’t look like themselves anymore, that’s when you kind of go, ‘Oooh,’ and it’s kind of sad,” Pfeiffer tells Elle. “It’s uncomfortable for us, but if they’re happy with what they see in the mirror, does it matter?”
