Amanda Redman Admits Using Botox and Dermal Fillers

amandaActress Amanda Redman came out as fan of both Botox and dermal fillers during an interview last week. During the interview with Woman And Home, the 58 year-old said:

“I had Botox and fillers in the past, but then I stopped. I might do it again, or have a facelift – I never say never about anything. At the moment, though, I don’t feel the need. I’m alright with myself. In a year’s time, I might not be.”

The former ‘New Tricks’ star also went into further in depth about her weight gain following the passing of her mother and her close friend Lynda Bellingham last year.

“I was bigger than I’ve ever been in my life. When I weighed myself that was a terrible shock. So literally the next day I went on a regime similar to the 5:2 diet – so two days of 500 calories, three days doing Slimming World, and then on weekends I do what I want. I’ve dropped a lot of weight.”

Amanda also went on to discuss the pressure put on woman of a certain age to not only look young but also keep a slender figure, commenting that: “There’s not a woman alive who wouldn’t like to be 18 again; don’t let anyone fool you into thinking otherwise.”

Amanda is just the latest in a long list of celebrities to come forward as a fan of cosmetic injectables. Previous famous faces championing Botox include TV presenter Anthea Turner, reality TV star Kim Kardashian and actress Naomi Watts.

“In a way, it doesn’t surprise me that Amanda made the decision to undergo both Botox and dermal filler treatment,” explained Dr. Alice Hudson-Peacock, a cosmetic doctor at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic. “Many woman in show-business feel the need to hold back time for a number of reasons. However, it’s not just celebrities that opt for these non-surgical anti-ageing treatments. Botox and dermal fillers have long been popular cosmetic treatments with the public too.”

“The quick and convenient results that both Botox and dermal fillers provide make them the perfect fit for the time-poor modern patient, and can often be a cheaper solution to the signs of ageing than surgical alternatives.”

Botox can help to not only improve the look already signs of ageing, but also prevent further wrinkles from forming too. Thanks to the treatment’s muscle relaxing nature, patients can prevent the facial muscles from creasing the skin, which can lead to the development of wrinkles; meaning Botox can also provide patients with a protective barrier against wrinkles forming as well as improving the appearance of present signs of ageing.”

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, can provide patients with an almost endless amount of possibilities thanks to their versatile nature. Dermal fillers can be used to combat numerous cosmetic issues, including thin or unflattering shaped lips, an uncomplimentary nose tip shape, deep set wrinkles and facial sagging. The treatment offers patients a simple solution to a multitude of cosmetic issues,” concluded Dr. Hudson-Peacock.

Although both treatments have benefits, it’s also important that patients are aware of the dangers that can come with the treatments. Like all cosmetic treatments, both Botox and dermal fillers come with their own set of risks and potential side-effects that patients need to be informed on before making the decision to undergo treatment. These risks include infection, allergic reactions and possible facial muscle and nerve damage.
