Are you wondering how celebrities get their flawless-looking skin? Many celebrities will share their skincare routines with their fans, telling them what kind of moisturizer, sunscreen, or serums they use. Yet, celebrities are usually a bit less transparent about what kind of professional cosmetic treatments they’re using on their skin. But, today, we’re sharing these celeb secrets to getting smoother, more radiant, younger-looking skin. Read on to see our list of 2019’s hottest celebrity skin treatments.
Take a close look at this picture of Charlize Theron and you’ll see that she’s a clear fan of laser resurfacing. The small dots on her cheek are leftover from a very recent laser resurfacing treatment (image courtesy of Reddit).
Laser resurfacing is incredibly popular with celebrities, as it can work wonders on the skin. Laser resurfacing can reduce fine lines, shrink pores, improve discoloration, tighten the skin, and improve overall skin texture.
Skin-Tightening Treatments: Chemical Peels, Facials, and Ultherapy
In old Hollywood, many celebrities got plastic surgery to tighten their skin. But today, more celebrities are turning to modern, less invasive options, like chemical peels, specialized facials, and Ultherapy.
While chemical peels and facials are classic treatments (that are classic for a reason— they work) you’ve probably heard of, you may be less familiar with Ultherapy. Ultherapy is a revolutionary new treatment that has earned the nickname, “the non-surgical face lift.” Through using specialized heat energy, Ultherapy lifts and tightens skin, leaving patients with a noticeably more lifted, youthful look.
Fillers are one of the most dynamic, versatile cosmetic treatments. And celebrities are taking advantage of fillers for so many things, including filling deep wrinkles and plumping the lips. But in addition to using fillers on the face, celebrities often use fillers in a lesser known way: to rejuvenate aging hands.
Our hands and face are the areas of the body that get the most sun exposure. And while most people know they should use sunscreen on their face to prevent aging, far fewer people remember to regularly use sunscreen on their hands, which means our hands often show our age quite clearly. But many celebrities are using fillers to take years off their hands, reducing hand wrinkles and making their hands look more youthful, firm, and smooth. On the hands, fillers are often used in combination with laser skin treatments, as fillers correct a loss of volume while laser treatments treat discoloration from sun damage.
Botox is a tried and true cosmetic treatment that can drastically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. And it probably comes as no surprise that this well-known treatment is one of the most popular celebrity skin treatments. But today, many celebs are choosing to get micro-injections of Botox, which allow the face to still have some movement, helping patients avoid the “frozen face” look that comes from getting too much Botox.
In addition to using Botox to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, many younger celebrities use Botox as a preventative treatment. Botox can be an excellent treatment for preventing a type of wrinkling called “dynamic wrinkles.” Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive movements in the face (smile lines around the eyes and forehead wrinkles caused by lifting the eyebrows are good examples of dynamic wrinkles). But Botox can prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming by causing the face to remain more still, helping to stop wrinkles before they ever appear.
