Aisling O’Loughlin has revealed she’s open to going under the knife for cosmetic surgery after being thrilled with the results of her Botox injections.

The former TV3 presenter (38) revealed she went for a “jab” to get rid of wrinkles she gained after becoming a mother and doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting to look your best.

“I’ll wait and see. I look at my mom and she looks great and she has had nothing done. I don’t mind a bit of age, but if something makes me look angry I’ll get it,” she told the Diary.

“Who ages on TV? Everyone wants to look their best, but I don’t mind a bit of age.”

The Clare woman, who is mum to Patrick (5), Louis (3) and 11-month-old Joe, said her face changed after she became a mum and found she was “really tired” while trying to juggle her busy career with family life.

“I got Botox on my dirty frown and I need it again,” she said.

“New moms understand, being a mom changes your face. You get really tired and you’re wrecked.

“You’re giving out as well sometimes – ‘Don’t do this, don’t do that’ – and you get a frown.

Aisling believes that if people have something small that bothers them, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to change it.

“I just get one jab, It’s a little pinch. It’s brilliant – if you have a wrinkle that’s really bothering you, jab it,” she said.

Aisling has turned her hand to running her own website, Exquisite.ie, since she was axed from Xpose last August along with Lisa Cannon and Peter O’Riordan after almost a decade with the programme.

The venture, which focuses on lifestyle and beauty, has brought the broadcaster back on to social media where she says she is careful not to give any attention to online trolls.

“I have to be on social media now, I have to be with the website,” she said.

“I don’t get much hate. I know all the buttons people can push, but I won’t entertain it either.”

Aisling is planning to add more video content to her website in the coming months and is hopeful that it could one day find its way on to the small screen.

“A lot of my ideas are just things I’m interested in anyway and have been all my life. I brainstorm a lot,” she said.

While she has big plans, she believes slow and steady wins the race.

“I’m very much enjoying it. I always tell people it’s very much a sketch right now because I’m a one-woman band,” she said.

“I’m taking it slowly. I can’t be in a rush, there’s only so much I can do. I do think it could become something bigger.”
