Ashlee Simpson may be the youngest person on the planet using Botox, at least according to what one magazine says. The 23-year old singer has been a poster child for plastic surgery ever since going under the knife for rhinoplasty. Now, some insiders are speculating that Ashlee is using Botox injections as frequently as once a month to achieve her “wide-eyed”, wrinkle-free look.
According to plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Levine, Simpson’s lack of expression and absence of creases when the singer smiles is a tell-tale sign of Botox use.
“When someone is smiling, certainly when they are smiling genuinely, you would expect a slight crinkle around the eyes, which I don’t see,” says Dr. Levine. “So I would have to expect that she has [Ashlee Simpson] had some Botox to that area.“
Additionally, the arch in Ashlee’s eyebrows has also been questioned as being the result of Botox. Botox can be injected into the forehead and between the eyebrows to remove wrinkles there and achieve overly arched eybrows.
In Touch magazine claims that Simpson has been going almost every month to Dr. Raj Kanodia, the celebrity plastic surgeon who performed Ashlee’s nose job (as well as the famous noses of Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Aniston), in order to inject botox into her forehead and around her eyes.
Predictably, Ashlee Simpson’s representative denied the allegations, claiming that Ashlee’s wide eyes and arched eyebrows were non-surgically achieved by expert makeup artists.
“Ashlee has never had Botox in her life,” the rep said in a prepared written statement. “She credits her eyebrows to her makeup artist who is a whiz with the tweezer.“
Whether the Botox rumor started by In Touch is true cannot be confirmed, as without strong before and after photos it is hard to believe that such a young person would resort to Botox injections. For the most part, Botox injections are done patients as young as late twenties. But being that Ashlee Simpson is the person in the center of this rumor, one cannot completely dismiss the possibility of this story being true.
Earlier this year, Ashlee opened up about her plastic surgery transformation and spoke about how she did not hate her looks and was not insecure about herself before going under the knife, but that she had her nose job and other facial improvement cosmetic procedures for herself and for no one else (read Ashlee’s Plastic Surgery Story). Ashlee Simpson also defended people who have plastic surgery and believes it is a personal choice that should be undertaken only for yourself and not in reaction to pressure from others.
“I loved how I looked. I’m not an insecure person, nor was I before,“ Simpson said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. “It’s a personal choice. I believe if somebody chooses to do plastic surgery it [should be] for yourself, not for anyone else.“

When asked about the media having made her into a target, Ashlee Simpson simply that at the end of the day she is a happy person and does not pay attention to the negative criticism.
“I’m a happy person, and I’m happy with my looks. Everybody always has an opinion. One minute they’ll love you; one minute they’ll hate you. When you go home to sleep at night [the important thing] is to feel good about yourself. And I do.“
