Getting older in LA, in front of the scrutiny of the media can be a rough time. Especially when you’re the star of a global TV show for a decade, commanding a million dollars per episode in its final two series.

So its no wonder that 43 year old Courtney Cox admitted recently that she too treats her fine lines and wrinkles with a little help from one of her friends, Botox.

Gracing the cover of InStyle Magazine the actress talked openly about how she manages to keep herself looking young.

“Aging gracefully is one thing, but trying to slow it down is another. Sometimes I use Botox. Compared to most, I use it very sparingly”

Courteney is more recently know for her role in another hit TV show “Cougar Town” and with its success has brought many more public appearances where she faces the glare of the camera. Non-surgical treatments such as Botox, when administered professionally, can achieve quick and painless results. Courteney strikes the perfect balance between visible yet natural looking results.

Like many women Courteney recognises the importance of having the right people carry out the treatments.

“I don’t have a problem with any of that stuff; if it makes you feel better about yourself and it’s done properly, then fine.”

The actress went on to tell the magazine that she researches ways of keeping a youthful appearance. For many women getting older can be a hard time and more often than not it isn’t because they feel old, its because the tell tale signs of ageing are beginning to show.

“Getting older isn’t easy for anybody. Especially here in Los Angeles. So let’s be clear: looking youthful is something I do a lot of research on. Man, I could use some Botox right now.” 

So, if like Courteney you are thinking about having Botox, what should you look for?

1. How much should you have?

Botox shouldn’t give you a frozen face. Remember sometimes less is more.

2. Who should administer it?

If you want visible yet natural looking results ensure your Botox is administered by an experienced doctor.

3. Do your research

Speak to your doctor and get a professional opinion on whether Botox is the right treatment for you.
