Botox opens up issues of image, self-image, and how far self-preoccupation is morally justifiable. It also raises issues of whether we're running away from ageing and why. Is it cool to want always to look young? This is not just a film star issue. How many elderly air stewards receptionists do we meet? What's wrong with the "older look" for the older person?
