Recently on social media, Ashley Jones (ex-Bridget, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL; ex-Parker, GENERAL HOSPITAL) asked her fans if they’ve ever done Botox and the overwhelming response and flood of questions and comments inspired her to write a lengthy blog post for her website on the subject. “Yes, I did get Botox,” she confirmed. “I’m happy I did it. It’s something I did for myself.
“I got a little amount as I still need to have complete mobility as an actress,” Jones continued. “I’ve done it before, it’s just been a while. I’m not ashamed that I did it. Nor will I ever deny it. Botox takes 7-14 days to see the results but at day eight so far, my skin looks smoother, brighter, and less wrinkled. The best way to describe it is almost like a ‘real Instagram filter.’ I also got a hint of Restalyne Refyne to add a hydrated look. I’ve done my own research. If it’s not your cup of tea, I respect that!”
Since it was the internet, naturally the comments on her post ran the gamut from complimentary and curious all the way to rude and nasty. “Some comments were harsh and wondered why I’d want it,” Jones admitted. “Am I feeling inferior right now? Nope. Insecure? Nope. Chasing my youth? Nope. Can I be into wellness and still do Botox? Yes.
“I know I put myself out there by asking questions like this and even just being on social media,” she added. “And I was not offended at all. However, it made me think about judgment. How often I do it, too. Mainly to myself. Little things we say and think about others, and about ourselves, really only reflect on us — not them! How nice if we just start celebrating each other more and more.”
Jones also included some clips from informative articles about Botox including some frequently asked questions, for any of her fans who might be curious about the subject. You can find it all in her blog post on AshleyAJones.com.
