Celebrities are well-known in putting their best face forward. Having millions of fans and followers looking at their every move, there’s a great deal of pressure for them to always look ‘perfect’ and ‘youthful’.
While it may seem that your favorite TV personality or movie star has access to their own private fountain of youth, they really just take advantage of beauty skin care products and safe anti wrinkle treatments that give effective results.
Face Shaving or Microdermabrasion
It’s been said that iconic beauties Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor regularly shaved their faces. It’s odd to picture these beauty queens peering into a mirror with a beard of shaving cream. The reason that took on this practice (usually reserved for men) is having a hair-free, smooth and glowing skin as shaving is also a way to exfoliate the skin. Another added benefit is it removes fine hair or “peach fuzz” on a woman’s face, which helps makeup go on smoother.
Exfoliation can stimulate the skin’s renewal process which keeps it from looking dull and lackluster. But if you’re not a fan of face shaving, you can always try Microdermabrasion in several aesthetic clinics in Singapore. Microdermabrasion is another type of exfoliation treatment that gently removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells by polishing the skin with natural diamond chips bonded to the tip of the wand, while vacuuming the exfoliated skin cells away in a safe and controlled manner.
This type of exfoliation can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and pigmentations and it can also reduce acne and extract blackheads and whiteheads. The Microdermabrasion procedure can be done safely by a skilled skin specialist in Singapore.
Non-invasive Skin Rejuvenation
The latest advancement offered at several laser clinics in Singapore is stimulating collagen growth by using infrared light and ultrasound to lift and tighten sagging skin.
These non-invasive these types anti-aging and anti-wrinkle treatment does not affect the surface of the skin, meaning you don’t have to worry about surgery or downtime. These skin tightening treatments are perfect not just for celebrities but anyone with a busy schedule. Ultherapy uses controlled ultrasound technology to target deeper layers of the skin stimulating new collagen formation deep in the dermis gradually. Ultherapy lifts the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow. It can also improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolleté.
Another favorite treatment of celebrities is the Titan treatment which utilizes infrared light waves that are completely painless. The infrared light targets the skin at the right depth to promote collagen production. After 2-3 months you can see the difference in reduced wrinkles and a tightening of lax and saggy skin.
Non-surgical Wrinkle Reduction
These days, going under the knife is the absolute last resort of most celebrities. Undergoing cosmetic surgery is very noticeable (in a negative way) and requires a lot of recovery time. Plus, surgery involves high risk of scarring, infection and nerve damage not to mention the unnatural look of having some ‘work’ done.
Many celebrities rather opt for non-surgical ways to look younger and more refreshed. We all have heard several celebs opting for Botulinum Toxin (or more commonly known as Botox) to remove their frown lines and crow’s feet. Although some celebs deny getting Botox done, there’s no denying the effectiveness of this anti wrinkle treatment which can also treat migraines and even excessive sweating.
Fillers are also one of the most requested treatments by Hollywood celebrities as it removes wrinkles, folds and dark eye circles instantly. Commonly made from hyaluronic acid, fillers can also plump up the cheeks and lips (check out Kylie Jenner’s lips!).
There are also a lot of aesthetic clinics in Singapore that provide dermal fillers because it produce dramatic results with little to no downtime. In comparison to plastic surgery, non-surgical wrinkle fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are a lot more affordable.
Another favorite anti-wrinkle treatment by celebs is the thread lift procedure. Thread lifts are not as invasive as traditional cosmetic surgery. This procedure is accomplished by placing dissolvable stitches underneath the skin and pulling them tight in the direction needed to produce a lifting and tightening effect.
Only a certified skin specialist should perform thread lift to create an brow lift effect, smoothening forehead wrinkles and to avoid any disastrous outcomes. Thread lifts for jowls also provide great facial contours by lifting sagging skin on the lower part of the face. The polydioxanone (PDO) threads gradually dissolve in the skin which stimulates collagen in its place. There is a minimal amount of downtime for thread lifts, but the benefit is longer lasting.
If you’ve been thinking of freshening up your appearance there are so many affordable and non-surgical options to choose from. Talk to a certified skin doctor about some of these options and whether you would be a good candidate for these particular type of aesthetic procedures.
