- “Friends” star Courteney Cox said her previous cosmetic injections made her look “really strange.”
- Cox said she would not get the same cosmetic procedures today, and dissolved her previous fillers.
“Friends” star Courteney Cox said her prior cosmetic procedures left her “looking really strange.”
In an interview with The Sunday Times, Cox said she tried to “chase” youthfulness by getting work done, but ended up regretting the results.
“There was a time when you go, ‘Oh, I’m changing. I’m looking older,'” Cox told The Times. “And I didn’t realize that, oh shit, I’m actually looking really strange with injections and doing stuff to my face that I would never do now.”
Cox said in a 2017 interview she got all her fillers dissolved and was learning to be comfortable with her natural appearance.
“You need movement in your face, especially if you have thin skin like I do,” Cox told New Beauty magazine at the time. “I’ve had to learn to embrace movement and realize that fillers are not my friend.”
Dermal fillers are made out of hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule found in your body, according to cosmetic nurse Vanessa Lee. Fillers tend to cost several thousands of dollars, and the results last a few years.
Fillers were among the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure in 2020, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Some plastic surgeons said the increase in Zoom meetings during the pandemic could have been behind the plastic surgery surge, as more Americans were looking at themselves for hours during work.
