Too much Botox made Katie Price look like ‘Daffy Duck’

Katie Price has admitted that too much Botox has made her look like Daffy Duck, which can happen after years of abusing this usually effective skin treatment.
When used properly, Botox can be an extremely effective and safe way of smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and freshening up a tired-looking face. However some people claim to have become addicted to its youth-returning effects and Katie Price certainly falls into that bracket.
Peter Beard, skin specialist at SkinGenesis, said: “You can see that Katie’s face has unfortunately become very swollen, puffy and cartoon-like, which is something that all botox therapists should seek to avoid for their clients.
“A responsible therapist will provide advice and guidance on when the next Botox ‘shot’ is required to maintain a smooth complexion. If the client is looking too false, it may be time for both client and therapist to consider a rest period to allow the fillers to be dissolved and the face to return to normal.”
The media-coined ‘trout-pout’ is not a new occurence, the most memorable in history probably being that of Leslie Ash, whose fillers were permanent, which means they cannot be dissolved by the body.
Wrinkles fillers, muscle relaxants and injectable dermal fillers remain some of the best anti-wrinkles treatments available in the UK when used sensibly. Anti-ageing treatments have boomed in recent years, but with so many creams, lotions and potions available, it is important to find one that works for your skin, so that you get the best value for money.
