Celebrity Secrets to Younger Looking Skin
It’s no secret that celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Anniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Kardashian, Demi Moore, and many others have openly admitted to visiting plastic surgeons for surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures to maintain their youthful looks and keep their skin glowing and radiant. At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Olga Bachilo makes many of these same cosmetic treatments available to her Houston-area patients.
Among the most popular non-surgical procedures that many celebrities seek regularly are the famed “Vampire Facelift,” which has been highly praised by Kim Kardashian and her sisters, as well as minimally invasive treatments such as Microneedling and Microneedling with Radiofrequency, commonly used by dozens of celebrities to keep their skin firm and smooth. These treatments rejuvenate the skin by triggering collagen and elastin production, which are essential building blocks of healthy skin.
The “Vampire Facelift”
The Vampire Facelift or Vampire Facial is a non-surgical procedure that consists of a series of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections that restore the skin’s radiance, enhancing its natural volume and firmness and diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
The Vampire Facelift is a safe and straightforward procedure with minimal risk of side effects because PRP injections are prepared using plasma extracted from the patient’s blood, so there are no harmful ingredients or chemical agents to be concerned with. Instead, the body’s plasma and stem cells are injected into the skin to promote healthier skin cells and rejuvenate the skin using its natural healing agents. PRP injections also stimulate collagen and elastin production to firm and tighten the skin and enhance its radiance. PRP injections also require no downtime.
Microneedling is another safe and effective procedure that many celebrities have recommended because it is minimally invasive and produces results comparable to more aggressive treatments such as laser skin resurfacing, achieving those results at a lower cost and reduced risk. Microneedling is performed using a device that gently punctures the skin’s outermost layer with tiny needles, triggering the skin’s natural healing mechanisms that increase collagen production and elastin.
Microneedling renews skin and reduces the appearance of surface imperfections such as acne scars, stretch marks, age spots, and discoloration. It also triggers collagen and elastin production, imparting a firmer and smoother texture to the skin and reducing lines and wrinkles appearance.
While home dermarollers and microneedling devices may be dangerous and cause more harm than good, a professional microneedling treatment such as those offered at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa produce excellent results that gradually improve the skin’s texture over time.
Microneedling with Radiofrequency
Many celebrities also opt for microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) treatments. RF therapy is one of the most effective cosmetic treatments currently available for non-surgical skin tightening. RF energy gently constricts skin layers below the surface, resulting in a firmer texture and reduced lines and wrinkles.
Combining microneedling with RF therapy enhances the benefits of the standard microneedling treatment because while microneedling treats the outermost layers of skin, RF therapy treats the innermost layers of skin. More comprehensive skin tightening can be achieved by enhancing the microneedling procedure with the power of RF therapy.
Microneedling or RF Microneedling with PRP Injections
For maximum rejuvenation, you can also combine your microneedling treatment – with or without RF therapy – with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. This combination takes years off your facial appearance and enhances the skin’s tone, texture, softness, and firmness.
