Of the five million people in the United States who get Botox each year, almost 30 percent are under the age of 30. Add Ashlee Holmes to the list.
“It was my first time. I just felt that I had try it at least once,” Holmes told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview.
But how young is too young to go under the needle for such things?
Responding to the inevitable critics, Holmes said “Botox is most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set, so I tried it. I really don’t see the big deal.
“People lose their minds over other women getting cosmetic procedures. I say, if you have the finances and you feel like it’s something that will make you feel more confident, why not go for it.”
The injections were administered at the surgery of Dr. Ramtin Kassir in Wayne, New Jersey on Jan. 6.
As for whether she’ll get Botox again, Holmes admitted she was “curious” about the future.
The beauty treatment will keep her skin wrinkle-free until it wears off in about two or three months, she added.
“It’s not like I’m out there telling women, ‘Hey, the only way you can be beautiful is by getting all sorts of injections.’ I believe that everyone should be comfortable in their own skin. If you can do that without touching your face at all, good for you.
“However, for some people that might mean trying out some new tricks. Everyone needs to relax. So many women much more well known than mehave tried Botox, so it’s going to be okay.”
