Ariana Grande has disclosed that she has stopped using lip fillers and Botox treatments in recent years.
Grande made the remarks during a Vogue video on her beauty secrets, in which she was frank — and emotional — about how her relationship with beauty has evolved over time.
The singer and actor have not previously stated that they have had any cosmetic operations. She remarked that having grown up in the limelight and so dealing with public criticism over her beauty from a young age, “it’s really hard to know what’s worth hearing and what’s not.”
Grande, now 30, explained while applying makeup for the video that she used to embellish her beauty looks with bigger hair or thicker eyeliner “as a disguise or something to hide behind,” but as she gets older, she doesn’t “love that being the intention behind it anymore,” preferring to think of it “as self-expression and accentuating what is there.”
She went on to say that she employed cosmetic operations in the same manner. “I’ve had a lot of lip filler and Botox over the years.” “I stopped in 2018 because I was feeling so — too much,” she said. “For a long time, beauty was about hiding for me, but now I wonder if it’s not.”
“I want to see my well-earned cry and smile lines,” she said. “I hope my smile lines deepen and I laugh more and more.” Ageing can be a wonderful thing.”
Though the use of injectables and other treatments among renowned faces is a well-known fact in Hollywood, it’s uncommon for celebrities to be candid about how they’ve changed their look — even with less invasive, more commonly accepted procedures.
Some celebrities, like as Chrissy Teigen and Cindy Crawford, have been open about their cosmetic modifications. Blac Chyna has gone even farther this year, using social media to film the months-long process of dissolving face fillers in her lips, cheeks, and jaw.
Grande is one of a growing number of young patients who have received cosmetic procedures. According to an American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery report, 27% of patients having Botox injections in 2022 were 34 or younger, a 6% increase from 2015. In addition, 75% of face plastic surgeons reported an increase in the number of patients under 30 seeking cosmetic surgery or injectables – a significant year-on-year increase, as a comparable proportion of doctors reported an increase in 2021.
Grande told Vogue that she hasn’t given up on injectables or surgery for good. “Do you think I’ll get a facelift in ten years?” “I might,” she said with a giggle. “However, these are just ideas that we should be able to discuss.” If we’re talking about beauty secrets… F*** it, let’s spill the beans.”
