Kelly Ripa| Botox Bragger

Celebrities who admit to any cosmetic procedures are rare. Host Kelly Ripa, who is the fresh-faced host of Live! With Kelly and Michael has no problem letting people know that she regularly uses Botox. According to a recent magazine interview Kelly Ripa stated “Every seven months or so my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes. So I feel like it makes my makeup artist’s life easier, and it makes my eyes look a little more open on TV, which is where I happen to work right now,” she added. Since the media is aware that the word plastic surgery is much more enticing than the word Botox, many headlines read that the celebrity had plastic surgery every seven months when referring to her quote. Celebrities embracing Botox is nothing new, although talking about it is rare. Dr. Seify explains to patients who choose Botox treatments that recurring treatments are necessary to maintain the same effect. After 10 years of Botox being available cosmetically studies have shown that over time the muscle does we can and patients can go longer between treatments before needing more. The popularity of Botox has allowed for many discounts and incentives for patients to take advantage of. Unfortunately it is also allow patients to believe that it does not matter who injects the Botox. The reality is the best results are seen by patients who utilize the same Botox injector every time they have the procedure performed. While it is not plastic surgery is a cosmetic procedure that does have risk and complications just as any other medical procedure would have. Add  to the fact that Botox is a medication with a temporary effect in most cases, whatever negative aspect a patient may experience would be for the most part; temporary. With that said, it may not seem as though jumping from provider to provider would be a bad idea. However, a patient must ask themselves how their life will be affected if they had to continue through life on a daily basis with one side of their brow noticeably lower than the other as a result of Botox injections. Dr. Seify encourages his patients to schedule their subsequent Botox appointments at the time of their Botox injection. The staff will help patients to determine the best time to schedule their next appointment. Patients are encouraged to ask about specials and promotions for Botox at the time of scheduling their appointment for the procedure.
