Celebrities have as much a desire as anyone to look younger as they age. Many of Hollywood’s biggest stars openly admit to the use of Botox, retinoid products, and fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm to preserve their good looks.
Courteney Cox Talks About Ulthera and Fraxel
In a recent interview, actress Courtney Cox said “You know what, I’m game for anything. I’m very open to trying to prolong the inevitable…I’m a big laser believer I really think they are the wave of the future. I just did Ulthera, which is supposed to produce collagen. And I’m about to do Fraxel, which will get rid of all these brown spots off my arms, chest and face.”
“I can’t name names, of course,” says Dr. Ourian, Epione’s Medical Director. “By openly discussing their use of anti-aging treatments,” he continues, “these stars allow themselves to be showcases for their effectiveness.”
Jenny McCarthy Admits to Doing Botox
Jenny McCarthy has been quoted saying “I go every two months. My tricks are, I get Botox in my forehead—I just have my doctor do a little shot there. If you overdo, it looks bad. I believe in just a little bit. It allows you to keep that mobility in your face. It’s a great little secret.”
Kim Kardashian and Gordon Ramsey Do Botox
Kim Kardashian even broadcasted footage of herself receiving Botox treatments on her TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey is on board with the treatments. Ramsey said in a recent interview, “Yeah, it’s (a friend’s) fault. I had lunch with him and he leaned over and started prodding my chin saying, ‘Mate, you’ve got to do something about this.”
Kelly Ripa Botox Tell-All
ABC morning host, Kelly Ripa has said, “I work out every day. I don’t overeat. I try to drink water, but I prefer wine, and when all else fails, I get Botox injected right here, right into my forehead as much as possible!”
Other stars such as Cindy Crawford, Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman, and Kylie Minogue have also admitted to using Botox and other related products.
“The attitude of celebrities to ‘tell all’ is really refreshing” says Dr. Ourian. “Maybe it’s a function of the 24/7/365news cycle that it makes more sense for these celebrities to come clean. In the old days, a Hollywood starlet disappeared good for a few months to have a nip and a tuck and nobody would be the wiser. But today that would likely be an exercise in futility. Why not just get in front of the news and admit it?”
Lisa Vanderpump blogged “Also, as most of you know, three years ago I partnered up with Dr. Simon Ourian in a skincare line, so any tweaking to my face (Botox for example) is done by him!” She knows that Dr. Ourian can give a boost to her appearance that she needs.
Botox – An Open Secret in Hollywood
For every celebrity that admits using these anti-aging advances, it is widely known that are many others who choose to keep their use of skin care products a secret. Ripa, Cox, McCarthy, Aniston and Kidman are all over forty years old, these treatments have kept them looking young and beautiful.
