We aren’t doctors, but we know a mysteriously smooth face when we see one, and The Situation of Jersey Shore fame seems to suddenly be rocking baby's-bottom skin.

Last February, The Situation posed for pics at the Grammy Awards and we couldn't help but notice his tired-looking appearance (left). Now, almost one year later, the reality TV star has been spotted in New York City (right) showing off a smoother, and more wrinkle-free forehead and eye-area.

Mike is, of course, famous on the Jersey Shore for looking much older than his 29 years. When he first appeared on the show many blogs and critics were quick to allege that he was older than he claimed due to his, uh, weathered appearance.

Mike’s not-so-youthful face was even criticized by his castmate Deena. When the two got into an argument during Season 4 and Mike slammed the star’s weight, Deena said: “I can lose weight for free, you need $10,000 to fix your face.”

We’re not saying that Mike has necessarily jumped on the Botox bandwagon but maybe his more-relaxed look could also be from reduced stress. After-all, going straight from Florence (Jersey Shore Season 4) to Seaside (Season 5), would put wrinkles on anyone's forehead.
