cosmetic injection of botoxCourtney Thorne-Smith, star of hit US television comedy Two and a Half Men, has spoken openly about how she turned to Botox to help maintain a youthful appearance. The 43-year-old actress, who is also known for her parts in Ally McBeal and Melrose Place, first turned to the non-surgical treatment 10 years ago when wrinkles on her forehead became apparent.Speaking to Australian newspaper The Telegraph, Thorne-Smith said she was happy to talk about using Botox and has not tried to hide the fact. She said: "It's never been a secret in my personal life I've just never been asked by the press. I've used it, I like it, it works well for me. That's just the simple truth. "I found I've been able to use it and have full expression and look really normal. I found the frown line was distracting me - I was conscious of it. Now I'm not." Asked if she would consider other treatments and cosmetic surgery, Thorne-Smith said she hoped that a good skincare regime would mean she wouldn't have to turn to other surgical and non-surgical options, but added that she'd "never say never".
