Celebrity Beauty Tips For 2017

Pretty much every celebrity you know has had a cosmetic procedure. Those who look as if they haven't are usually making use of state-of-the-art technology that helps reverse the effects of aging without surgery. It's the new way; with these advances, you can have natural-looking results, great value, and there is no scarring and little to no down time. Perhaps most importantly, these non-surgical treatments preserve the individuality, so that you still look like yourself just a more rested and relaxed version.

How can you take your cue from the stars, and look and feel your best at any age?

1. Ulthera Non-Surgical Face and Body Lifting This is a unique laser that lifts and tightens loose skin on your jaw line, neck, forehead, cheeks, and other facial areas with safe, precise ultrasound treatments. It can re-contour your face, and also tighten and lift your arms, buttocks, abdomen, knees, and elsewhere. Featured on Dr. Oz and The Doctors.

2. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Sometimes known as the Vampire Face Lift, this harnesses the restorative power of your own body to naturally treat wrinkles, scars, pigmentation and other blemishes. PRP can be combined with microneedling to enhance results. It can also be effective for hair loss, especially if stem cells (A-Cell) are added. PRP has been featured widely on national TV, and many stars, including Kim Kardashian, have spoken out about their use of this technology to maintain their youthful looks.

3. Vanquish, Kybella and LipoLite Face and Body Contouring Vanquish is a new advanced laser that “conquers your core” by painlessly melting away unwanted fat on your abdomen, waistline, hips, thighs and other areas. No advance preparation is needed. Results are quicker and more effective than with other fat removal lasers. There is no recovery time, so you can walk out of the office after treatment and go straight back to your regular activities.

Kybella is a new injectable treatment to effectively dissolve away submental fullness (double chin). Kybella has been recently publicized by Khloe Kardashian and other celebrities.

LipoLite is a new laser that precisely targets and permanently destroys unwanted fat cells to re-contour your chin, abdomen, arms, thighs, and other areas. Treatment is quick, comfortable, and requires only local numbing. It is ideal for removing stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to exercise and a healthy diet, and also for tightening the skin.

You can combine Vanquish or LipoLite with other lasers to re-shape your face and body, tighten skin and improve cellulite and stretch marks. Celebrity devoteesof body contouring include the Real Housewives of New YorkCity, Omarosa from The Apprentice who has tweeted about her experiences with Velashape, and Khloe Kardashian. LipoLite was recently featured in a Prime Time News interview for CBS Channel 9 TV.

4. The Exilis Ultra is the only laser to combine radiofrequency and ultrasound treatments for advanced face and body contouring. It achieves quick, painless and dramatic nonsurgical lifting of your eyebrows, cheeks, chin and jawline. It is also very effective for the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms and other areas. A unique feature of Exilis Ultra is that lifting and tightening can be combined simultaneously with fat removal. Exilis Ultra can also be combined with the Vanquish and other fat-burning treatments. Exilis Ultra can also be combined with the Vanquish and other fat-burning treatments. Exilis and Vanquish have been featured on many prime time news and health programs, and was discussed during the Good Morning Baltimore TV program on December 17.

5. The Syneron Triniti Laser System rejuvenates all the layers of your skin in the same treatment session, giving you smoother, firmer, more radiant skin, while fading sunspots, veins, and other blemishes. The latest additions to the Triniti system are the eMatrix and eTwo, recently cleared by the FDA, which are highly advanced wrinkle removal and skin tightening systems, and have been featured on CBS News and the Rachel Ray Show.

5. Liquid Face Lifting Another new way to refresh your face is to lift it with natural fillers such as Voluma, Restylane, Volbella, Juvederm, Radiesse, Belotero, and Sculptra. These can remove under-eye hollows and bags, restore youthful fullness to your cheeks and lips, and lift your jaw line. The same techniques can also be used to rejuvenate bony, veined hands, and to improve wrinkling and sun damage on your neck and chest. With the right techniques, including the use of French cannulas, fillers also stimulates your skin to produce new collagen for longer-lasting results.

With the newest fillers, Voluma and Volbella, an expert dermatologist or plastic surgeon can lift sagging cheeks and jawlines and naturally recontour your whole face.

While some celebrities prefer to keep their work under wraps, supermodel Cindy Crawford and Joy Behar formerly of ABC TV's The View have described fillers as one of their keys to looking younger.

6. Beyond Botox Now there are three muscle relaxers to choose from Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Advanced cosmetic surgeons who teach and do research have been using all three for a while. Expert treatment doesn't just smooth out your frown lines; it safely and effectively treats forehead wrinkles, crow's feet, and lines around your mouth and neck, and even reshapes your entire face. It can be combined with lasers and fillers to make your results last longer and help prevent lines from deepening.

For great results and the best value, select an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon who uses a concentrated Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin solution with more treatment units, for better, longer-lasting results. Actresses Vanessa Williams and Brooke Shields are among the many celebrities who have publicly spoken about the positive effects of their Botox treatments.

7. Expert Tip The American Board of Medical Specialties recognizes Board Certified dermatologists and plastic surgeons as Core Aesthetic Specialists who are appropriately trained to perform cosmetic procedures. You may wish to select a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who has national and international recognition as an expert in the field.

With today's technology in the right hands, you will look youthful and vibrant at any age, and reflect outwardly the good health, energy and vitality you strive for internally.
