If I Use Cosmetic Injections, Will I Look Like My Celebrity Hero?
Yes I know I haven’t put anyone’s actual name in the title, but that’s because we all have our own idols. People who we secretly think we look a little like. You can fill in the blank yourself. I personally was thinking of Cher, but that was the 90s Cher, so I might be looking for a more up to date replacement. Any suggestions?
So much of today’s beauty industry is based on celebrity endorsement. The implication of all the marketing effort, in both print and TV adverts, being that if you use the product you too can look like them.
I’m afraid I have always taken this idea with an enormous pinch of salt. Whilst I accept that a course of cosmetic injections, such as using Botox to reduce your crows feet, does indeed produce a real improvement in your appearance, actually looking like one of the ‘Desperate Housewives’ is a little harder to achieve! The major problem is that while we’re trying to fit our beauty treatments in around all our other day-to-day commitments, these women are professionals. They have looking perfect as their full-time occupation; and that’s a massive advantage.
Consider this list:
They are physically stunning to start with – this might not be a good reflection on show business or the acting profession in general, but nearly always physical good looks are rated higher than actual acting talent. These people are starting their beauty regimes from an already high base.

They don’t have to work 9-to-5 – they can devote the whole day to preening, pampering, working out at the gym and generally aiming to be their absolute best.
Those photographs might not be all they seem – shock, horror! Through the use of that modern aid to beauty, the computer program ‘photoshop’ nearly all images used in advertising, magazine covers etc are re-touched in some way. It goes from removing a blemish here right up to, in some cases, even removing a couple of inches from the waistline! All done through digital manipulation of the original photograph.
What I’m trying to get across is, please be realistic in your initial expectations as to what your beauty treatment can do for you. Look for small improvements getting better and better step after step.
Don’t be discouraged, if there isn’t a massive improvement instantly and keep going…. as they say, all good things come to those who wait!
