Stuck in the traffic jam on the way to work, you turn on the radio. The celebrity gossip segment has just started. The Hollywood reporter has been interviewing celebrities at a red carpet event and is bursting with news about who has ‘had some work done’. The radio host laughs and says, “work, haven’t they all had some work done!” The quick-witted banter carries on and the reporter makes jokes about having Botox medical teams on speed dial.
With the traffic moving and the gossip segment over, you start to think about celebrities and Botox injections. You understand that celebrities need to look and feel their best. But then you recall a conversation you had with your neighbour a few days ago. She’d just got back from a tropical holiday and looked rested, happy and tanned.
You commented how fabulous she looked and she replied, “thanks so much, it was a great holiday, but between you and me I’ve just had some more anti wrinkle injections!” Since that conversation, as you brush your teeth you’ve been examining your face closely. You’re fit and healthy, but the lines between your eyebrows don’t go away when you’re happy and the wrinkles on your forehead draw your face down.
Before you get out of your car and enter the office, you do a quick Google search on celebrities and Botox injections. You’re curious about which celebrity may have had wrinkle injections. Here’s a few celebrities who may have had anti wrinkle injections – we’re not 100% certain but here’s a few of our favourites.
Nicole Kidman: celebrity with good Botox injections
For decades, Nicole Kidman has had a spotlight on her personal life and career. From falling in love and marrying Tom Cruise, to a torrid divorce and then finding her true love – Keith Urban. Now she’s a busy working mother, a style icon, busy actor and producer.
Nicole Kidman has always attracted attention. If she has had Botox injections, we think they’ve been used in her upper brow, crow’s feet and between her eyebrows.
Christie Brinkley: celebrity with good Botox injections
From super model to being the inspiration for Billy Joel’s “Up Town Girl”. Christie Brinkley is in her 60’s and looking amazing. If she has had injections, only her cosmetic doctor or dermatologist will know. Recent interviews suggest she dabbled with Botox injections but didn’t like the results.
If she has had more wrinkle injections, we think she looks amazing. The vertical bands on her neck appear to have gone and her natural expressions are wrinkle free.
Victoria Beckham: celebrity with great Botox injections
From Posh Spice in the Spice Girl’s to marrying and having children with soccer star David Beckham. Victoria Beckham makes headlines with her celebrity style, fashion empire and very stylish children.
If Victoria Beckham has had Botox she looks amazing. Her flawless skin and finely defined features indicate she’s seeing the best wrinkle injection specialists.
Heidi Klum: celebrity with great Botox injections
German supermodel Heidi Klum is also an actor, fashion designer and TV host. With four children to her ex husband Seal, we love Heidi Klum’s style, beauty and physique.
Like many celebrities, Heidi Klum doesn’t confirm or deny she’s had Botox or procedures. If she has we think they’re a great example of natural results and effective enhancements.
Why do celebrities who have had anti wrinkle injections look so good?
Celebrities who have had wrinkle injections look good because they have put a lot of thought into how they want their face to look. They know fine lines and wrinkles on their face are signs they’ve smiled and enjoyed life – but that doesn’t mean everyone needs to see them.
Most importantly, celebrities who have anti wrinkle injection procedures go to highly qualified, trained and experienced cosmetic doctors and cosmetic nurses. To achieve a natural and subtle look, wrinkle injection treatments are carefully tailored so expression lines are reduced, but never frozen. During a consultation with the cosmetic doctor or cosmetic nurse, consideration will also be given to the overall balance of the face. To achieve the best wrinkle injection results, the upper and lower face need to be addressed.
Experienced and trained cosmetic Botox specialists demonstrate a detailed and delicate approach to anti-wrinkle treatment. For example, they will carefully consider the dosage amount of the wrinkle treatment. Over-treating forehead wrinkles and lines with Botox injections can lead to a heavy and low brow. If laughter lines around the eyes are over treated with wrinkle injections, there may be compensatory muscle contractions under the eyes – leading to more wrinkles and lines developing.
What are Botox injections made of?
Anti-wrinkle injections are based on purified protein inhibitor that relaxes your muscles. This protein is derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Historically associated with botulism (a type of food poisoning) the medical form of Botox is safe and tightly regulated. It’s important to note that compared to poisoning, the dose is very small.
For over 20 years, wrinkle treatments have been used to treat many medical conditions as a medicine. With over two decades of safety data, large doses of Botox are commonly used to treat and relax tight muscles in cerebral palsy children and adults.
Larger doses of Botox are also used to treat:
- Facial nerve disorders
- Eyelid spasms,
- Incontinence, and
- Excessive sweating.
How do anti wrinkle injections work?
With skilfully placed, small doses, the molecules in the Botox injection interrupt the signals between muscle fibres and nerve endings. The result is a softening of facial wrinkles and fine lines that have been caused by repetitive expressions.
Wrinkle injections can:
- Reduce crow’s feet – your laughter lines,
- Improve your brow shape,
- Open up your eye area so you appear more relaxed and happy,
- Treat forehead lines and wrinkles,
- Reduce mouth down turning,
- Narrow a wide face,
- Address glabellar furrows – often called the ‘11’s’,
- Reduce chin dimpling, and
- Relax horizontal neckbands – the platysma muscle.
How long do Botox injections last?
The effects of the wrinkle injection procedure are generally seen after one to two weeks. After the Botox treatment, many people begin to notice a gradual relaxation of the muscles treated. This gradual change can start at 2-3 days, but can take up to two weeks to be very noticeable.
The duration of effectiveness of the anti wrinkle treatment depends on the dose administered. Wrinkle injections can last up to 4 months. Usually for the first few treatments, the longevity is shorter – around 3 months. Research shows the most effective and longer lasting wrinkle injections occur with regular treatment every 3-4 months.
What do wrinkle injections feel like?
During your wrinkle treatment you’ll have a number of small injections with very fine needles in the areas you want to treat. Most people experience minimal pain and discomfort. Cold packs or anaesthetic creams can be used before your anti-wrinkle treatment to reduce any possible discomfort.
