What is Skin Like the Stars?
Ever wonder why so many stars appear to be ageless? Their appearance never growing older. How do they do it? Some of them will talk about their diets, exercise, drinking plenty of water and avoiding the sun, but they almost never talk about what they do in the doctor’s office. Now their secret is out! Most of them are on a regular regimen of medical treatments designed to combat the effects of aging and keep them looking young and beautiful.
Step One – Good Daily Skin Care Regimen
The stars all begin by doing things right for their skin every day. This includes using good cleansers and moisturizers and above all sun block. The sun is the number one cause of skin aging and sun block daily is the best defense. Most stars also watch their weight and avoid a lot of fats and processed sugars in their diets. Most stars get their doctors involved from here. Regular medical grade facials and peels, often as frequent as monthly, are commonly used. Prescription anti-aging products like Retin A for wrinkles and Latisse for long eyelashes are often fundamental parts of the daily regimen. Innovations Medical will help you design and maintain a regimen for your skin type as part of your skin like the stars package.
Step 2 – Injectables
Most of the stars use injectables like Botox or Restylane and many begin in their late teens. Botox and its cousin Xeomin are reversible muscle toxins. These injectables reduce wrinkles and creases caused by muscular action in our faces. Just as importantly, clinical studies have shown that Botox can PREVENT WRINKLES when used regularly. Restylane, Radiesse, Belotera and others are used to restore lost volume, primarily in the face. These are the injectables that you have seen overused so much in stiff faces and “duck lips”. However, Restylane and the others can be used more subtlety and restore volume while leaving others unaware that you have had “work” done.
Step 3 – Collagen Building and Maintenance
Collagen is a protein that is one of the main building blocks of our bodies. Collagen is the main supporting of our skin. The loss and stretching of collagen is one of the most important causes of skin sagging and wrinkling. In other words collagen loss makes us look older. Fortunately we have tools to fight collagen loss. Thermage and Legend are two tools that use radio-frequency energy to produce new collagen and tighten the skin. The stars often use these two several times a year to tighten and preserve their collagen. Research has shown that yearly use of tools like Thermage can increase the amount of collagen in the skin significantly.
