While we wish we could say that actresses, models and singers—not to mention reality stars—solve skin problems with all-natural remedies you can pick up anywhere. That does not seem to be the case. Instead, they head over to the dermatologist for science’s cutting-edge, lightning-fast and yes, pricey, solutions. Here are 4 Celebrity Instant Skin Care Solutions:
#1 Photodynamic TherapyThis uses a blue light combined with an amino acid that’s applied to the face. It’s used for patients (including celebs) with severe acne issues. It can be fast, but photodynamic therapy can also lead to itchiness, swelling, infections and crusting, so make sure you are in the hands of an experienced dermatologist with this particular therapy, which can cost around $4,000.
#2 Ultrasonic HydrationWhile hyaluronic acid is a great moisturizer and collagen protein is one of the key building blocks of skin, getting both to penetrate to the deepest levels of skin is not easy. That’s why this therapy uses serums of these substances combined with ultrasound waves to get them deep down into the skin for maximum hydration. However, results only last a day or so—more of a short-term than long-term solution. This is why skin care scientists at Adore Cosmetics advise focusing on integrating these kinds of ingredients into a long-term skincare routine.
#3 Filling UpYou’ve probably heard of hyaluronic acid fillers with brand names like Restylane, Juvederm and such. These are good in the areas between the nose and lips and also for crows’ feet around the ideas. But stars also use them around the jawline and cheeks to plump up the skin for a more youthful look. Each treatment costs hundreds, though, and filler results are permanent in many cases, so proceed with caution. Remember that we’ve seen stars that overdo it with the fillers…
#4 Electric FacialsThis one seems to be performed more by aestheticians than dermatologists, and the idea here is to use very light electrical currents to kill the bacteria that can cause acne and possibly help cells repair themselves. The thing to keep in mind is that, like, NO studies show that this works. Also aestheticians are NOT dermatologists and don’t have anywhere near their training. So again, be careful: your Uncle Larry may be great at pulling teeth in his garage but if he didn’t go to dental school…well, good luck with that. A similar deal here, not to mention that there’s no clinical support that it works.
