ABSTRACT
The article presents information on how actors can use face injections such as Botox and Juvéderm to look younger. Dermatologist Jessica Wu recommends that actors who want cosmetic injections turn to cosmetic dermatologists, and never to beauticians or cosmetologists and probably not even to surgeons. Wu says actors who seek cosmetic injections should find a practitioner who is sensitive to a performer's need to make facial expressions.
