Today, more and more celebrities are choosing skin tightening procedures before big events. Many stars want to look their very best and skin tightening can help by smoothing the skin and giving it a healthier, more youthful glow. It may seem like a surprise that anyone would make a cosmetic medical appointment right before standing in front of hundreds of camera, but that’s exactly what movie stars and celebrities of our time are doing. You might be thinking to yourself, “But won’t the cameras see the scars, the bruising, the swelling?” And the answer is no. Cosmetic surgery has advanced to the point that skin tightening procedures no longer require a scalpel and, often, even anesthesia. With little to no downtime, it makes perfect sense why a red carpet walker would choose a skin tightening procedure before more invasive surgery. Dr. Dayan’s team offers three such procedures for skin tightening that, more likely than not, are the same procedures many celebrities are using today.
Celebrities use skin tightening procedures because they are minimally invasive and can be performed in an office setting. With minimal risk and no anesthesia involved, they offer great results without high chances of miscalculation. Pelleve is a great example of this. Created by Ellman International, Pelleve uses radio frequency energy to evenly heat skin tissue deep beneath the outer layers to activate and promote new collagen growth. Collagen growth will not only help diminish wrinkles and fine lines, it also results in smoother, firmer skin. For the best results, its recommended to do a series of two to three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. A celebrity may start their treatment a few weeks before the red carpet and continue treatments until the very last day before an event. As only a small amount of swelling and redness patients experience for a few hours after the treatment, there’s literally no downtime. Technically, if a celebrity were to get a treatment in the morning, by evening, they’d be ready to take that red carpet stroll.
That’s not the only option though. Similar to Pelleve, the Harmony system by Alma Lasers can freshen and tighten skin, except rather than radio frequencies; the system uses near-infrared pulsed light technology. Though different technology, the purpose is the same, to heat the deepest layers of skin to stimulate the production of new collagen. Just like Pelleve it can help reduce the sight of wrinkles and fine lines as well as give you a fresh, youthful glow.
While Harmony alone can garner moderate results, many patients, and celebrities alike, choose to combine the procedure with other lasers to receive more dramatic results. For example, the Dr. Dayan team uses Harmony as part of a Laser 360 Skin Rejuvenation Program. The procedure covers the face, neck, chest, and hands along with any areas that show drastic signs of aging or sun damage.
Celebrities can choose these types of procedures before big events because, even though a lot of the body is covered, you are still able to immediately return to work and resume normal activities. As the results are gradual and occur over a period of time, many celebrities will go in for several sessions to help boost collagen growth and make sure their red carpet appearance is nothing less than stunning.
Last, one of the lastest non-invasive treatments, that you can be certain some celebrities are using before their big premieres, is Venus Freeze. Using (mp) technology, the Venus Freeze device uses multi-polar radio frequency and magnetic pulsed fields to initiate a dense yet uniform heat matrix which promotes collagen production with elastin synthesis which helps keeps the skin tight and youthful. Again, after a series of procedures (6 treatments are ideal), internal collagen will remodel and grow for up to 3 months with a youthful appearance lasting much longer than that. This treatment also reduces body circumference and the appearance of cellulite.
It’s obvious to see why a celebrity might choose skin tightening procedures before going under the knife for more drastic, youth-reviving surgeries.
Skin tightening is non-invasive, with little to no downtown. Swelling and redness for most procedures last no more than a few hours and the results can often be astounding. If you have a big event coming, maybe not a red carpet, but a wedding, vacation, or anniversary, a series of skin tightening procedures might be for you. Remember; always consult your doctor before committing to any form of procedure. If you have allergies or are on any type of medication, your physician should advise the safest steps to youthfulness.
