Ever wonder how stars like Jennifer Aniston and Denise Richards shine so bright? Let’s just say they’re not adverse to a little help from the scalpel. Stars often have to take extreme measures to keep their looks fresh, their skin healthy and also to look as young as possible.
The New Indian Express reports that leading Bollywood dermatologist Srilata Trasi explains that stars are faced with high incidences of photosensitivity and early aging. Why? Because of exposure to lights, acne flare ups due to constantly having to wear makeup, hair loss due to changes in hair styles, and stretch marks due to continuous variations in weight, tanning and pigmentation. So what treatments do stars opt for to combat these issues? Read on for a few of the most popular.
Chemical peels can help improve the skin’s appearance. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it “blister” and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck or hands. They can be used to reduce fine lines, treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging, improve the appearance of scars, and reduce pigmentation issues.
Dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Radiesse can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs. Most dermal fillers smooth out lines and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from four months to more than a year. Dermal fillers can also be used as “volumizers,” plumping and lifting cheeks, filling out thin lips, and enhancing sagging hands.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that uses tiny exfoliating crystals that are sprayed on the skin. It works best on problems such as dull skin, brown spots, and age spots. The great thing about microdermabrasion is that it works on all skin types and colors, and it makes subtle changes, causing no skin color change or scarring. However, it is not effective for deeper problems such as scars, stretch marks, wrinkles or deep acne scars.
For saggy, crepe-like skin, Thermage offers hope. This non-invasive device uses radiofrequency energy to heat the skin. The heat stimulates the body’s production of collagen, dramatically tightening the skin. The best part of Thermage is that only one treatment is necessary, and results are long lasting.
IPL Photo Facials
IPL (intense pulsed light) photo facials improve the appearance of photo-aged skin, remove age spots, most brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called photo rejuvenation. The process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects. The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad spectrum light to treat the face, chest, neck and hands – virtually anywhere that sun damage shows.
Mesotherapy is widely practiced in France as a weight loss technique, and it involves the injection of small amounts of various medications—such as aminophylline, plant extracts and vitamins—into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and connective tissue under the skin. The theory is that when these small amounts of medication are injected into the mesoderm, underlying fat melts away. Mesotherapy can be used to treat anyone, including people who are obese as well as those who are thin but suffer patches of stubborn cellulite.
