Reality star Kim Kardashian is no stranger to controversy, and the 31-year-old always makes sure she looks good when she’s caught in the spotlight; however, she was recently spotted leaving an LA Botox salon looking less than her best. The second-eldest daughter of clan Kardashian was photographed leaving the clinic with red blotchy skin, shortly before an appearance at the Valentino party, where she wowed crowds in a black and white ensemble.
It’s still unclear whether Kim underwent Botox treatment, but it has been suggested that it was merely a flare-up of her on-going skin condition, psoriasis; however, the salon she was seen leaving does specialise in Botox therapy. The TV celebrity is very image conscious, spending a lot of time in the public eye at fashion events and Hollywood premieres, and she has admitted to dabbling in cosmetic enhancements in the past. The treatment ended badly for poor Kim, as she suffered a rare allergic reaction to the toxin, which left her skin swollen and bruised. ‘I’m never doing this again…’ Kim told her family, adding ‘at least not until I’m forty.’
Although she’s not shy about her use of Botox, Kim is adamant that she has not gone under the knife to keep her good looks intact, telling nightline last year that she was ‘totally not against plastic surgery… [Botox] is the only thing that I’ve done.’
