Botox Freezes the Expression

Ah, Hollywood, where young girls go to sleep at night and dream of the day they can have their first Botox injection. Where plastic surgery and Botox combine to create faces that range from the strange and plastic-looking (Marcia Cross, Nicole Kidman) to the bizarrely unnatural (Joan Rivers, Joseph Biden, Janice Dickinson).

One thing that people who inject Botulinum Toxin (another way to say botulism poison) into their faces have in common is that they can’t raise their eyebrows. This limits the facial expressions they can make.

That’s why the headline of this ad, “Freedom of expression is what I’m all about,” is ironic.
