I should probably point out that I chose a picture of the Kardashians for legal reasons, because they’re definitely not the celebrities in question here. They’re going to come out of COVID-19 isolation looking the exact same as they did when they went in. There’s no way you can hit the needle as hard as they do without there being enough residual neurotoxin in your bloodstreams to last for six quarantines. This story is about the celebrities who are in bad shape, Botox-wise, and how they’re allegedly getting anxious about the current condition of their faces.
Page Six spoke to celebrity dermatologist Dr. Harold Lancer, who works with “some of the biggest names,” but won’t name anyone in specific, because that’s illegal of course. But he claimed that he’s been getting several dozen calls a day from frantic clients who are desperate for a filler fix. Botox and fillers generally last about four months before they need to be re-injected. And considering that some people have been in lockdown for nearly seven weeks already, you can imagine how high-pitched some of the voices on those phone calls are.
“I’m getting around 20-45 calls a day coming through to my nurses for a variety of cosmetic and medical issues,” said Dr. Lancer. “The majority of my clients are high-profile people, whether in entertainment or politics and they require a lot of care, but most of the people I see are extremely disciplined about home skin care. It’s about ensuring care when you can’t see patients for long spurts of time.”
Dr. Lancer says he has 1,000 appointments lined up for late summer with his regulars who are all desperate to re-do their Botox, fillers and other rejuvenating treatments — with many sending him and his nurses selfies every day.
Dr. Lancer went on about a client of his who chose to do her own at-home facial peel. She ended up with first and second-degree burns that took 12 days to finally go away. When he asked her why she would DIY her face like that, she responded, “You just think – how bad can it be?“. Some people have learned nothing from Samantha Jones.
As for how people can make their Botox last longer, Dr. Lancer, who looks like a San Diego Santa Claus, suggests keeping the skin hydrated with water and moisturizer.
But besides cream and water, there’s not much that famous people can do to maintain their faces at the moment. And that’s tragic, because this means that for the first time since it was approved by the FDA, famous people can’t get access to their beloved Botox. Ironically, this also means that the first time in a long time, their faces are able to express how angry they are about not getting Botox. Forehead lines have returned. Faces are thawing. Wow, nature really is healing itself.
