Botox at 17?!

What is wrong with Hollywood?

When you were 17-years old, were you worried about wrinkles? We hope you’re shaking your head no, because that should be the least of your worries when you’re that young. 17-year-old girls should be focused on that cute boy who sits behind them in Chemistry, and how they’re going to sneak out of the house this weekend to go to that kegger in the woods.

They should not be worrying about their aging skin.

But in Hollywood, this doesn’t apply. Dr. Simon Ourian, M.D., a cosmetic dermatologist in L.A. tells Fox News that his youngest client for Botox injections is a 17-year-old model. No kidding.

“I see maybe four or five well-known actresses a week who insist on coming through the back door because they don’t want anyone to see them,” says Dr. Ourian. “And half of those are under 30.”

This obsession with perfect, wrinkle-free skin is understandable (sort of) in an industry where the young and beautiful succeed. But starting Botox and plastic surgery procedures that early can definitely backfire.

According to Dr. Michael Fiorello, a celebrity plastic surgeon, research has shown that it’s possible for Botox to lose its effect over time. So, when these 17-year-olds grow up and actually need anti-wrinkle treatments… so sorry!

Plus, casting agents in Hollywood are looking down on the cosmetic surgery overload, avoiding girls who clearly don’t look natural. Casting agent Toni Cusumano tells Fox News, “If someone told these girls to just get back to basics, don’t stay out partying all night, don’t drink, don’t smoke, and don’t do drugs, then they wouldn’t need these quick fixes for their face.”

Amen to that! But, more importantly, what is this teaching young girls? If they follow every other trend coming out of Hollywood, who says a ‘Botox Baby’ craze isn’t next? (Fox News)

    The sooner you get it the more you need so girls, at least hold out till 18.

  2. Fashionista says:

    I think 18 is still way too young. Don’t get it until you turn 30 – stick with natural remedies and creams until then.

    A couple of years ago I read an article in The New York Observer about 9 year olds, yes, 9 year olds were getting botox. WTF?

  4. sugarpie says:

    This is disgusting – and the thing of it is, it usually doesn’t look that good!

    17? where were her parents? THAT is the issue that needs to be addressed – I cannot stand needles so botox would never work for me – I use Olay producs – and when I am old and wrinkly I will embrace my face because I am so much more than just what you see – something that everyone should remember about themselves – looks fade, but your inner self still shines through – if you feed it, love it and let it –

    Ok, I’m only 23, but I think plastic surgery is a bit drastic. Granted, I myself would like breast augmentation, but if I don’t get it, I’ll live (in my case, I have (literally) the chest of your average 11 year old. For some reason I never developed even though every woman in my family has larger breasts; it’s almost like a deformity (haven’t determined if I’m capable of breast feeding just yet..I’ve often wondered if I am able to).) So I can understand the desire for it, but when it comes to wrinkles, that’s something that happens to us all when we get older. It shows your wisdom. My goal in life is to make my lines laugh lines. I think that’s acceptable and even desirable. Show’s you’re a happy person.

    I’m not one to judge on simple plastic surgery, but take it easy folks! If you have a good personality, that’s what shows. For example: my husband is a boob man, but I have none of them whatsoever. Yet, he loves me dearly. What does that say about me? Women should strive for this situation.
