Kelly Ripa Admits to Botox
Every morning, Kelly Ripa shares intimate details about her personal life with the world. So why should she be ashamed to admit she also loves Botox? In the most recent issue In Touch Magazine, the “Live! With Kelly” host spills on some of her top beauty secrets.
“I work out every day. I don’t overeat. I try to drink water, but I prefer wine, and when all else fails, I get Botox injected right here, right into my forehead as much as possible!” Ripa, 41, told the magazine.
Actress, host and busy mother of three (sons Michael, 15, and Joaquin, 9, and daughter Lola, 11), Ripa knows that a big part of her job includes keeping up appearances.
“It’s when my kids start asking me if I’m mad at them, and I say, ‘Why do you think I’m mad at you?’ They say it’s because I’m frowning. I go, ‘Oh no! I am? I’ll be right back!’”
How popular is Botox, really?
Kelly Ripa does it. Tons of other celebrities do it. But what about the rest of us “regular” people? Well, Botox injections are probably a lot more popular than you think. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS), about 5.7 million Botox procedures were performed in 2011.
Botox is fast, cost-effective and relatively painless, making it the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world. It can be used to reduce wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet around the eyes. Botox is also approved for a wide range of medical uses (e.g., overactive bladder, excessive sweating).
Another added benefit? The entire treatment takes less than 30 minutes and you can resume your normal routine as soon as you leave your doctor’s office.
