Celebrities are famous for leading some of today’s trends in cosmetic and plastic surgery, and Botox continues to be one of the most sought-after procedures for Hollywood starlets and actors looking to freshen up their looks. Unfortunately, many red carpet legends go overboard with their procedures, setting themselves up for a plastic surgery disaster. Christian Slater has recently joined the ranks of ‘Botox addicts’ in Hollywood after a series of Botox injections that have left his forehead looking overly smooth.
According to MakeMeHeal.com, facial plastic surgery expert Dr. Paul Nassif says the 39-year-old actor may have overdone the Botox this season because his forehead is very low and very, very smooth. His eyebrows now look more arched than ever, especially since the actor has a prominent receding hairline.
Some people speculate the actor has also had hair transplants to freshen up his look, but with the extra Botox, his face almost looks frozen in place.
Signs of too much Botox include a very-feminine appearance that becomes more pronounced in men that use it, an unusually smooth forehead or upper facial area, and an imbalance in skin tone on the forehead when compared to the cheeks and neck.
For now, Botox is still one of the quickest and most effective ways to get rid of wrinkles and improve the appearance, but there is no guarantee that it will produce the most natural-looking results. Still, Hollywood leads the way in maintaining demand for non-invasive procedures such as Botox, and other cosmetic treatments such as VelaShape skin tightening treatments, SmoothShapes for cellulite reduction, and injectable fillers to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines around the face with a ‘liquid facelift’ treatment.
Still, the risk of overdoing the procedure runs high with these treatments, especially fillers like Restylane, Botox and other injectables. In almost all cases, reversal treatments for fillers are not possible so the individual has to wait for the body to absorb the compounds in order to restore their natural appearance.
