The Secret is Out!
There is something about keeping secrets that is exhilarating and tiring at the same time. We don’t know how so many celebrities do it, and we also love, love, love when their beauty secrets are revealed. Really, who should look that good as they age and not feel the tug to let us all in on how they’re doing it! Let’s look at Christie Brinkley, for instance. A supermodel throughout the 1980’s, the classic beauty has not seemed to change much at all in the past 20+ years; and yet, she has been clear about the fact plastic surgery is not the reason. So, what gives? Many of us have been dying to know, and now we do, and we are pretty excited about it.
Younger Looking Skin? Bring it!
Looking young has never been so easy, and Ms. Brinkley is here to remind us of that. In addition to her strict, healthy lifestyle (which many believed was the sole reason for her elongated youth), Christie has admitted to a little help from her doctor. To reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and promote lasting beauty, she has turned to Ultherapy and Xeomin, a BOTOX alternative. The reason that this is exciting is that the results we see on a 63-year-old face give us an idea of what is possible for us, too.
Facial aging is a unique journey for each of us. At first, the loss of firmness in the skin is subtle. We barely notice. Then, seemingly overnight, a pocket of loose skin develops under the chin. The jawline droops at the sides. The corners of the mouth take a downward turn. These concerns may be mild, but they are nonetheless disturbing. It is at this time when injectables and Ultherapy may do the most good.
How Ultherapy Supports Beauty
Ultherapy was one of the first non-surgical treatments used to treat facial laxity. The process involves target-heating of subdermal tissues using ultrasound energy. The adjustable nature of Ultherapy treatments makes this technique suitable for mild to moderate facial aging from the forehead all the way down to the neck. The transfer of energy into existing collagen strands leads to immediate contraction and a slight lift. That lift continues to improve as these collagen strands are strengthened with healthy new stores over time. Some patients choose only to have their eyes treated, while others schedule a yearly, full-face treatment that takes approximately 90-minutes. Imagine! An hour-and-a-half, once a year, for powerful skin rejuvenation!
