How Do Celebrities Maintain Such Youthful Skin as They Age?
Most of us have seen our favorite celebrities in magazines and on television and wondered, how do they stay looking so young? Is it genetics, lighting, or makeup? Could they be using Photoshop to conceal their wrinkles? The truth about celebrity skin secrets is not mysterious at all! There are tried and true ways those in the know maintain their youthful skin, even as they age.
Firstly, celebrities might be working with good genes. And many stars are attractive in the traditional sense, giving them a major boost. Genetically gifted people do tend to maintain their good looks as they age. But that’s only part of the story because good genes can only take you so far in aging. Aging is a natural process; our skin will eventually deteriorate physically, resulting in wrinkles, dark spots, and even skin cancers.
As we age, our fine lines start to deepen, and we lose that plumpness and glow of the skin that underpins youth. Fortunately, modern medicine has created several potential treatments to slow aging. Patients visiting their dermatologists have never had more choice from daily skincare routines to botulinum toxin injections and dermal fillers. However, with this choice also come dos and don’ts. Today, we will discuss how to approach dermal fillers and what to bear in mind when considering an anti-aging regimen.
Dermal fillers are substances injected under the skin to smooth it out and offer fullness. Depending on the type and quantity of filler being used and the location of the injection, patients can opt for a dramatic or understated look. Fillers are regulated by the FDA and often represent a temporary solution for facial fullness. There are four types of filler. The first three fillers below represent quick options that must be re-administered, usually every year. The fourth option is a more permanent filler.
Today, women and men alike have started looking at their appearance differently from generations before. Whether it is because of the pressures of social media or the perfection that we see on TV and in magazines, many people have taken their need for cosmetic improvement to the next level.
For some, this means using the myriad of dermatological treatments appropriately and at the right age. For others, there is a tendency to start too soon and too aggressively.
Foremost on the minds of those in their 20s and 30s are the beginnings of wrinkles and crow’s feet. No wrinkle treatment has a more significant following than Botox. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that there has been a 28% increase in Botox injections since 2010 for those in their 20s.
