Kylie Minogue Confesses to a Botox Makeover

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on April 9, 2009

kylie_minogue_While stars and celebrities are famous for jumping on the latest cosmetic surgery bandwagon to keep their youthful look, only a few admit that they have actually had plastic surgery or cosmetic enhancements.  Famous faces such as Janice Dickinson and Joan Rivers aren’t shy about sharing their latest beauty fix with the masses, and now Kylie Minogue, the Australian pop singer and songwriter, has stepped forward to confess that she’s also had her fare share of cosmetic surgery.

For Minogue, her fix comes in the form of Botox.  Botox injections are one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures in the United States, and have been approved the FDA for wrinkle reduction.  Botox is typically administered in the facial compartments to get rid of wrinkles around the forehead, reduce fine lines around the eyes or get rid of wrinkles around the mouth.  In some cases, it may be used as part of a ‘Liquid Facelift’ treatment in combination with other injectables to create a more youthful appearance.

Kylie recently interviewed with Elle Magazine and says she is completely comfortable sharing the fact that she has used, and will continue to use, anti-wrinkle injections to maintain her youthful look.  Kylie states, “I also think it doesn’t have the stigma that it had when I was growing up.  For time women have wanted to, for the most part, look their best. It’s just that what we have available to us today is – what it is today.  I’m preferring to be a lot more natural these days.  I’ve tried Botox, I’ve tried it all.” (Source: Fametastic.co.uk)

The 41-year old singer is in the ideal demographic for Botox injections and other minimally invasive procedures that can get rid of the signs of aging.  Many men and women in their 30s and 40s are enjoying great results from Botox and other injectables that provide instant results – and often at an affordable price.

    Most people tendd to look down at others who have had Botox injections. And that’s silly.

    You see botox is an important part of wrinkle treatment. That’s because it treats one of the most funadamental wrinkle causing factors.

    And that factor is muscle contraction.

    You see, as we age the muscles in our body become smaller and contaracts. However the muscles in the face differs from all other muscles in the body.

    Facial muscles are the only muscles that are connected directly to the skin. That’s why your skin wrinkles when you raise your eyebrows (Those wrinkles are the result of the muscles pulling on the skin.).

    So as we age and those facial muscles begin to shrink…they pull on the skin causing the skin to fold. And we are left with forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet wrinkles (i.e. wrinkles around the eyes).

    But botox treats this.

    Botox causes the musles in the forehead and around the eyes to relax. And in so doing…the skin unfolds causing wrinkles to begin to disappear.

    No anti-wrinkle cream in the word can do the job of Botox. Creams can only penetrate as deep as the skin. In other words…they do not reach the facial muscles.

    So there is no way they can relax muscle contractions.

    That’s why I think its foolish that people still continue to purchase these ‘magic’ creams and at the same time turn up their noses at persons who has taken botox injections.
