8 Celebrities Who Proudly Admit Getting Botox Injections
About a decade or two ago when cosmetic surgery became increasingly popular, celebrities were among the first ones to try new beautifying methods such as celebrity Botox injections in New York City. However, the majority of procedures were conducted in secrecy, and being open about having some work done by a professional was not an option.
Nowadays, many things have changed. First of all, astonishing advances have been made in the field of aesthetic medicine. Secondly, even “regular” people undergo treatments on a daily basis. You can even use your lunch break to pay a visit to your dermatologist and make improvements regarding your look.
In addition, many celebrities have been very candid about their experiences regarding numerous cosmetic procedures. That has made a big change in how people view cosmetic treatments such as Botox injections.
Actually, Botox injections were a major turning point in the world of cosmetic procedures. While cosmetic surgery offered amazing results, it included a lot of downtime and risks. Botox was revolutionary; despite some myths, it’s painless, quick, and effective. People loved the fact that you could drop by to have Botox injections and look great the very next day.
Depending on the place you choose, Botox can even be less costly than some luxury creams. Moreover, after a certain age, creams cannot make a huge difference. Botox, on the other hand, can make you look much younger in record time. After all, it’s no wonder so many people swear by it.
So, who are those celebrities who aren’t afraid to say that they have had Botox injections? Here is a list of those who claim that Botox has been making their lives much easier and more beautiful.
There are those who love her and those who hate her, but one thing is certain - Kim Kardashian is one of the most influential public figures of our time. Kim, as well as her family members, aren’t ashamed of using Botox to enhance their look. Actually, Kim was so open about getting Botox injections that she let cameras film one of her procedures for their reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Even in her fifties, Cindy Crawford looks amazing. Genetics has to do a lot with how her skin looks, but that’s not all. She considers skincare, exercise, and nutrition very important, but adds that she “doesn’t want to lie to herself.” In her opinion, to restore elasticity, she has to rely on Botox, vitamin injections, and collagen. When it comes to the quality of her skin, she isn’t afraid to say that she owes it to her dermatologist.
There is no doubt that Vanessa Williams is one of the most beautiful celebrities of our age. Although she wants to look natural, she doesn’t mind saying that she uses Botox to help her achieve that. “I use it very sparingly. I want to look natural.”
Linda is one of the most influential and accomplished models who was featured on more than 700 magazine covers. She was also the first public person ever to admit doing Botox. Back then, she remembers that it made her mom upset, but she said that everyone did it, and she saw no point in lying about it.
Although it is most commonly linked with women, Botox isn’t stranger to men either. Simon Cowell openly said in Glamour UK that, to him, Botox is no more unusual than toothpaste.
Robin Wright is another extremely honest celebrity that spoke about doing Botox. She told The Telegraph that everyone does it and that “it’s just the tiniest sprinkle of Botox twice a year.” Also, in her opinion, the amount of 10 units of Botox that many women do “freezes your face and you cannot move it,” so she prefers only one unit “here and there.”
For Kelly, Botox was a game changer; she managed to cut her beauty routine in half after she started doing Botox. She didn’t want to advise anyone to get it or not but simply stated that it changed her life for the better.
Sharon Osbourne didn’t want to hide her love for Botox on her show. Not only did she admit using it, but she also said that it was “one of the best things that has ever been created for cosmetic surgery.”
