I was quite amused reading the article yesterday in The Straits Times featuring our dear glamorous celebrity doctor Dr Georgia Lee. She’s probably the only doctor who is always dressed from head to toe in designer clothes while attending to local socialites and celebrities who flock to her for all sorts of beauty treatments.
In the article, it said that regular Botox injections which she administers on herself ensures that there are no laugh lines or crow’s feet on her face. But from what I see, the frequent injection does not quite reverse her age. She definitely looks her 39 or older to me even though her skin is porcelain-smooth.
As far as I know, and based on what I’ve read such as from this website concerning Botox in London, these injections can smooth out dynamic wrinkles and give a more youthful and pleasing appearance. However, the treatment CANNOT improve wrinkles due to aging.
If dynamic wrinkles make you look older than you are, cosmetic “denervation” can smooth these out and give you a more youthful and pleasing appearance. However, this treatment cannot improve wrinkles due to aging and sun-damaged skin since they are unrelated to facial muscle contractions. Muscle relaxing injections will not improve sagging skin or replace the need for a facelift or browlift.
So whilst Botox can reduce frown lines and erase crow’s feet, it cannot realistically make one look very much younger than their real age.
