My best friend is drop dead gorgeous, today she is going for her first lot of lip fillers and botox because she feels old.... anyone care to guess her ripe old age hmm

I think botox on anyone under 45 makes them look much older than they are.

My neighbourhood is FULL of these women, they all look exactly the same.
Absolutely no individuality left in their faces.

I reckon she's 29???

Also why do people get lip fillers ???!?? I've never yet seen pictures of a good result - has she not heard of poor Leslie Ash? If not, show her some pictures !! shock

Trout pouts here we come! I'd say 32.

Mouthfulofquiz Sat 30-Nov-13 08:12:44

22??!! In that case she's been watching too much TOWIE and needs a reality check.

22?!

Wow.

cantheyseeme Sat 30-Nov-13 08:15:17

Im shocked! I think its a really slippery path, especially starting so young! She uses tan injections too and is addicted to diet pills.... i KNOW i look younger and healthier than her with my pasty complexion haha.

I feel sorry for her. I feel sorry for anyone that obsessed with their looks. The inside of their heads can't be very pretty.

The person who agrees to give a 22 year old Botox without a very good medical reason should have his licence revoked.

cantheyseeme Sat 30-Nov-13 08:20:18

This is it, she is naturally stunning but her self esteem issues get in the way, apparently people with botox get into more arguements because its harder to read their facial expressions confused

That's so dreadfully sad. sad

It's very sad but no surprise. How old is the model/beauty queen woman on I'm a celeb? She's only young but clearly had Botox

It's preventative so if you're going to go down that route younger is better. 22 however is crazy young, although its when most people seem to start aging. I'm 26 and if I had the money (and the lack of needle phobia) its something I'd consider, my brows have dropped dramatically in the past few years...

Branleuse Sat 30-Nov-13 08:36:46

Thats a bloody shame.

My guess is shes spent all her life with people talking about her looks so positively, and now shes petrified of losing that as its all shes ever known

I spoke to a young woman who is now having to have her breast implants removed/changed. She is 26, she had them done at 17 sad.
She too is an absolutely stunning looking woman and was an equally beautiful young girl 10 years ago.
I cannot believe anybody agreed to do this to her at that age. The joys of private medicine hmm

And botox and fillers are done by all sorts of 'practitioners' - not for me, sorry. I'll keep my haggard 47 year old visage grin

Norudeshit, many purveyors of botox or fillers have no licence. The whole business is the Wild West if you ask me.

perfectstorm Sat 30-Nov-13 08:44:46

Oh God, the poor girl. She'd do better to spend the money on decent counselling. That's so sad.

Szeli I'm friends with a plastic surgeon who says there is no evidence that Botox is preventative. In fact, there's a suggestion it may be the opposite.

I think it's very sad. In fact, I only recently realised that very young women were having Botox. I remember, naively, thinking that Leah on The Apprentice must be suffering from depression because she had such a flat demeanour. Of course, it turns out she couldn't express herself because her muscles were paralysed!

Szeli Sat 30-Nov-13 08:53:23

Aren't tanning injection illegal now?

You can still get them online confused

Your body always compensates for any bits that don't work by making other bits locally work harder - it does this because it's a natural reaction. Think of blind people's other senses becoming more developed to compensate for their lack of sight. When people have Botox for their forehead lines, the brain thinks 'something's not working', and compensates by making the other facial muscles work more to express emotion. Hence around the eyes, it gets more wrinkly! Of course, they then start to have Botox there... Go on till you get plastic-face.... Not so much young looking, more Barbie.
