Ugly Betty star says goodbye to her braces


Actress America Ferrera removed those colourful train track braces for the last time as filming for the fourth and final season of Ugly Betty wrapped last year, but the 27-year-old has admitted that she’s not quite ready to let go of her clumsy alter-ego just yet. America has held onto the frizzy wig, the thick-rimmed glasses and the huge metal brackets that were Betty’s trademarks, keeping them safe in memory of the character that made her famous.

‘I don’t suppose I will ever wear them again, even though there is talk of making an Ugly Betty movie,’ She said, ‘but it is nice to keep them because we defied the old show business belief that looks are everything, by proving that they aren’t.’

However, the British Orthodontic Society doesn’t remember the braces quite as fondly, questioning why the character was still wearing the ‘over-exaggerated’ appliance after three years. Spokesperson for the society Tracey Posner said ‘This is not a true reflection of orthodontic practice. It is highly unlikely an adult would wear braces beyond two years.’

She also hit out about the stereotype that braces were thought of as damaging to the characters appearance, saying ‘It is irresponsible of the programme makers to portray Betty as ‘ugly’ because she wears prominent braces. People who wear braces are not ugly. People considering treatment should not be put off by such a stereotype.’

Desperate Housewives star: Botox can make you look refreshed


Vanessa Williams uses Botox.One of the stars of Desperate Housewives has said she uses Botox to keep her looking young.

Vanessa Williams, who plays Renee in the long-running drama and was also in Ugly Betty, told What's On TV she often has the treatment in a bid to keep the youthful appearance that helped her win the Miss America title in 1983.

"I think that it's a beauty tool that can help make you look refreshed and relaxed. I use it as an aid and it's not something that I would get hooked on," she commented.

Williams added that she has seen some people who have gone overboard with Botox, freezing their expressions and causing themselves problems as actresses.

Indeed, nurse Amanda Pierce recently told About My Area that people who have Botox should not be left looking surprised.

She said this is a symptom of having had it done by an inexperienced practitioner and recommended that people seek out professionals instead.

Botox ‘transforms people in 10 minutes’


Botox 'transforms people in 10 minutes'Treatments like botox can help people look younger and feel more attractive in minutes, according to one expert.

Dr Khilji Arif explained that innovations in cosmetic surgery now mean that individuals can be transformed using minimally-invasive procedures, the Express Tribune reports.

He remarked: “Women have always wanted to look younger and more beautiful. The difference is that now we have refined, researched products, quicker, non-invasive remedies which are also affordable.”

The publication described how plastic surgery has become more sophisticated and therapies like botox are no longer reserved for celebrities but are now readily available to everyone.

It noted that the injections can be completed in a lunch hour as there are virtually no side effects and the results are only temporary, so if an individual is unhappy with the result, after six months they will return to normal.

Ugly Betty actress Vanessa Williams recently admitted in an interview with Star Pulse that she uses botox twice a year to keep her looking youthful.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19896669-ADNFCR

Star Pulse reported the actress has opened up about her family life and beauty regimen and she said she uses Botox lightly, in order to keep herself looking her best.

Ms Williams told the publication: “The latest thing I’m into is Botox, which I’ve been doing every six months. I do it lightly because I want to have an expressive face that has movement … My goal is to look like me.”

She added that she has been telling the rest of the cast about the benefits of the treatment and claimed: “I bring in my favourite products and love turning people on to new things”.
