Kate Spicer was pushing 40, and like so many women, she wasn't crazy about her appearance. So she did a little gonzo journalism by diving into the world of cosmetic treatments for an upcoming BBC America documentary called Super Botox Me. After a bull semen hair treatment in London, she jets off to the United States for a beauty prescription of Botox, Restylane, Fraxel, and more.
You can check out a preview clip online. In it, Spicer goes to see Dr. Fredric Brandt, the dermatologist rumored to treat celebrities including Madonna. (He also injects his own face with Botox, which blows my mind.) "It's no different from getting a haircut," he tells Spicer as he injects her neck with Botox. If you've ever wanted to know what that or Restylane injections (yowch!) look like, consider your wishes granted. "I'm a total Botox slut," Spicer quips after her second round of Botox in a 24-hour period.
The show premieres March 26 at 9 p.m. ET on BBC America, and I'd say it's required viewing for anyone considering Botox — or anyone who just wants to peek inside the world of extreme beauty.
