SK- II Stem­power Essence, RM395 (30ml) & RM572 (50ml) diffu dif­fuse when in­jected to give a gen­tler ef­fec ef­fect (ideal for soft­en­ing, not freez­ing the fore­head fore mus­cles). For nee­dle-phobes, top top­i­cal Bo­tox ap­plied by a doc­tor is, says Dr Dr. Lowe, around “two years away”.

For most, it’s about find­ing an a anaes­thetic they like; but for some, a r re­liance on Bo­tox has a more trou­bling si side. I ad­mon­ished one doc­tor for not pe per­suad­ing women to pull back on the frozen-face ef­fect. “It’s not for you to judge,” he said. “Of­ten the hus­band is hav­ing an af­fair, the chil­dren don’t talk to her; she’s mis­er­able and so she asks me to re­move those emo­tions so she can present a serene face to the world.” The Val­ley of the Dolls gen­er­a­tion had b bar­bi­tu­rates; we, it seems, have Bo­tox.

“Women used to hide be­hind a mask o of heavy make-up,” says Dr. Se­bagh. “Now “N they have more con­trol of their fa faces; it’s per­haps no co­in­ci­dence that we have ha th­ese new sheer tinted mois­turis­ers and BB creams.”

This elec­tive ma­nip­u­la­tion to cre­ate some sort of Step­ford Wives seren­ity is per­haps perha more sad than ris­i­ble, but the lat­est de­vel­op­ment de­vel is what Dr. Lowe calls “busi­ness Bo­tox”. Bo­tox Last week, I had a real high-flier specif­i­cally speci ask for that frozen look. When chair­ing chair high-level meet­ings, she doesn’t want to feel she is giv­ing any­thing away to her male m coun coun­ter­parts; it’s what she calls her “busi­ness “busi­ness­busi pok poker face”.

This use of Bo­tox needs to be kept k in per­spec­tive; for the vast ma­jor­ity, it’s still just a rel­a­tively sim­ple way of slow­ing down age­ing. “The gen­tle ap­proach is by far the most pop­u­lar,” re­as­sures r Dr. Lowe. “For ev­ery client I see who wants a lot of Bo­tox, I see 10 who just want a softer, so nat­u­ral look.”

Still, so long as she doesn’t go over­board, over there’s no rea­son why a woman wom should be barred ac­cess to whate what­ever makes her happy.
