It is no secret that movie stars and supermodels get aesthetic cosmetic procedures to maintain an ageless and youthful appearance. However, it is something rarely talked about or even admitted. Often, Hollywood types will credit good genes and clean living for looking so young. In a break from this tradition, Christie Brinkley admitted, in an interview with Erica Tempesta for DailyMail.com, that she uses Botox injections to remain youthful.
There are not many supermodels that continue to get work into the 60s. However, the Brinkley interview corresponded to her gracing the cover of Social Life magazine’s July issue. She explained, “As you approach 60, women start to notice the neck especially in taller women I think, you can start to see these bands, vertical bands, and those can be tamed and tightened by injections of Botox into those bands.”
Nonetheless, the use of Botox injections for neck wrinkles is atypical. The FDA has approved Botox injections for lateral canthal lines (crow’s feet) and glabellar lines (frown lines). Combined with dermal fillers, Botox can restore a more youthful appearance. However, use of Botox on the neck (sometimes called a Botox neck lift) is becoming more common.
With this aesthetic cosmetic procedure, specific muscles in the neck receive Botox injections. The relaxation of those muscles does reduce wrinkles and lessen noticeable muscle lines. However, despite the name “Botox neck lift”, the procedure does not tighten loose skin or reduce fat. It only relaxes the muscles.
