Make Me Heal has previously reported that beautiful actress Courteney Cox-Arquette has mixed feelings about plastic surgery (See Make Me Heal’s story on Courteney Cox’s plastic surgery). But the actress has come out with definite feelings about Botox.
Us Magazine reports that Courtney, 44, says she did indeed have facial injections, but she wasn’t pleased with the results.
“I was miserable,” she says.
“I mean, I’m an actor, I’ve got to be able to move my face.”
In a recent interview with Marie Claire magazine she stated:
“Botox? I think it’s fantastic and also horrible,” she said. “I mean, they’ve come up with this stuff that can make you not look angry. But you have to use it sparingly.”
‘When people start messing with their foreheads and can’t lift their eyebrows, that’s weird.
‘It’s not that I haven’t tried Botox – but I hated it.’
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn reminds readers that, “If Botox is injected tastefully, people can still retain a natural look and expressions. It’s those physicians who create a ‘frozen forehead’ where the expressions can be obliterated.”
Her younger husband, actor David Arquette, prefers the natural look. Courteney Cox has previously told reporters that “David has a huge problem with it, [plastic surgery] but I don’t. It’s hard getting older; it’s hard not to be the young one anymore.”
Courteney has always said that she believes in using plastic surgery sparingly, to help the signs of aging.
“A lot of people are overdoing Botox, but I think everything in moderation is fine. If it looks natural and it makes you feel better, do it,” said Cox in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in 2004.
Subsequently in a Marie Claire interview in 2006, Courteney repeated her stance, saying that she “believes in the judicious use of plastic surgery.”
Indeed, Courteney has had lip injections in the past with successful results. The effect is subtle and natural, as she avoids the frequent problem of unnatural lip augmentations where surgeons over-augment the top lip and create the much talked about “trout-pout.”
In the past, Courteney has also been subject to rumors of a breast augmentation, which were negated by Dr. Youn (See Make Me Heal’s story on Courteney Cox’s breast augmentation).
Whether or not Courteney has really ceased her Botox injections or uses lip fillers, her careful use of cosmetic enhancements is certainly well-done and enhances, rather than detracts from the actress’s natural good looks.
