Celebrities are always in the spotlight, whether it’s on the red carpet or running a quick errand. The pressure to always be at their best selves is always present. In the old times, celebrities would often deny doing a procedure to enhance their looks. Today it is much different, with the advent of reality shows, like Catching Up with the Kardashians celebrities are more open about these procedures. Kim Kardashian went as far as filming her PRP procedure and sharing it in the show. Aesthetic services have also gone a long way, with new developments almost every month, procedures are looking more natural, it’s almost impossible to tell someone had undergone one, that is if they are not overdoing it. Be informed, read on and make the right decisions.
Botulinum Toxin Injections
BOTOX® and Dysport® are the most commonly used brands for aesthetic treatments. Botulinum Toxin injections have various aesthetic applications, at the forefront of it is wrinkle prevention. Celebrities get injections on their “problem areas”, frown lines or 11’s — these are vertical lines on the forehead between the brows that usually form when you are frowning, furrow lines — forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet — lines radiating from the outer corners of the eye. Aging, sun damage, and an unhealthy lifestyle are the culprits behind wrinkle formation. By making the muscle unable to move, it can no longer form superficial wrinkles in the skin that lies above the muscle. This not only smooths out existing wrinkles but also prevents new ones from forming in the treated areas. Vanessa Williams and Kelly Ripa are some of the actresses that have been open about using Botox.
Getting older and forming wrinkles is inevitable but Hollywood is quite demanding, there is an unwritten rule that actors and actresses need to be ageless. As people age, the cells in their bodies does too, collagen production lessens, resulting in skin losing some elasticity and becoming fragile. This causes loose, saggy skin where folds tend to be more visible. Creases and lines formed from smiling and frowning and other facial expressions tend to become permanent since the skin isn’t able to spring back in position due to loss in elasticity. Botulinum toxin is a celebrity’s best friend, those smile lines can easily be smoothed out with the right application of injections by a professional injector.
The brow lift is another treatment that actresses, models, and singers are fond of, they love the Disney princess look that can be achieved from this procedure. Brow lifts results in the top half of the face looking longer and appearing elegant with the high brows and prettily shaped eyes.
Injectable fillers were generally used to fill in the creases that have formed from a wrinkle. Today there is a great variety for dermal fillers, there is a specific filler designed to work for a particular area. Fillers have been receiving quite some media attention since celebs like Kylie Jenner are very open about using them.
The trend for fuller lips is still at a high, the way it can drastically change the look of one’s face without surgery has quite an appeal. Just a slight addition of filler to the upper lips can transform a person’s face big time. The quest to achieve full lips continues, a lot of ladies dreaming of getting Hollywood hottie Angelina Jolie’s naturally sexy pout. Juvederm, Volbella and Vollure, as well as Restylane, are go-to brands used for lip fillers. Aside from filling out the lips to get that plump look, lip fillers can also be used to minimize lipstick lines, or vertical lip lines, to achieve smoother lips.
Fancy a cheek lift? Fillers offer you a non-surgical and less invasive procedure with very minimal downtime. This procedure defines your cheekbones, plus you can have an option between a fuller cheek or a more angular look. Whichever option you choose, the ultimate end result still is to make you look younger, this is achieved by lifting and elevating the midface while casting a shadow on the mid-cheek, creating a beautifully slim, and youthful look.
Platelet Rich Plasma Facial
Vampire Facial which involves microneedling followed by a mask of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) applied to your face to speed up the healing process, stimulate cell renewal and overall improve tone and texture of the skin. This is a fairly painless process since topical anesthesia is applied before the microneedling process. It offers a reduced risk for allergic reactions compared to the other procedures since your own blood is used. Kourtney Kardashian is said to be a huge fan of this procedure.
