Celebrities' beauty standards: An unrealistic approach?
Hollywood stars have always been a beauty reference for everybody. All of those red carpet moments exemplify how radiant, young, and fit they appear to be. Many of us love to follow celebrities on social media to get to know a bit more about their extravagant lifestyle and their secrets to reaching what we think is their “everyday look”.
Let’s face it, most Hollywood actresses and actors are looking younger in their 50s than in their 20s. How is that possible? Isn’t wine the only privileged who gets better with age?
The answer in most cases is very simple: subtle and natural non-invasive procedures performed over time can give you a glow-up and give the impression that you barely got anything done.
That’s why aspiring to have the immaculate skin of Hollywood stars is not only counterproductive but also unrealistic. We could think they all have really good genetics when in reality, they probably spend a lot of time and resources discovering their ideal skincare routine and the latest treatment in the beauty industry.
Fortunately, many of them are starting to disprove this belief through social media posts by uploading photos of them without makeup, showing their skin imperfections, or exposing the impact that good lighting, angle, or photoshop can have on the way they look under the flash.
The truth behind the celebrities glow-up
Celebrities' jobs involve being in front of the camera and so, it is not hard to understand why looking flawless is one of their main priorities.
Following a healthy lifestyle and rigorous workout plans are two of their daily habits. Needless to say, they also have access to some of the best professionals from the well-being and aesthetics industry that guide them to maintain a radiant look all year round.
However, it is important to keep in mind that the goal of achieving a star’s look usually involves something more than clean eating and exercise. Although not many Hollywood stars are willing to admit it, some of their best-kept beauty secrets entail a couple of visits to the cosmetic clinics.
The rise of minimally-invasive procedures has arrived in the Hollywood sphere as well. A few reasons: minimal downtime, quick treatments, and very low complication rate.
So what are the treatments all of these Hollywood stars seem to be getting and how can you achieve the same results?
Non-cosmetic treatments Celebrities swear by
1. Botulinum toxin
Have you ever wondered why celebs don’t have any or as many forehead wrinkles as they should due to their age? Well, this answer is simple: botulinum toxin in the form of injectables. It is a neurotoxin that paralyzes the muscle involved in facial movement. However, too much of this toxin can give the illusion of not having any emotion due to a lack of movement on your face.
In the past, the use of this toxin was related to losing your characteristic facial expressions. This scenario is a bit different today since with modern technology and high-quality products you can achieve good and natural results when performed with professionals.
Supermodel Cindy Crawford had admitted in an interview to using Botox “past a certain age, creams work on the texture of your skin but, to restore elasticity, all I can count on is vitamin injections, Botox, and collagen”.
The go-to treatment for those who can’t go to the gym consistently, nor want to have a very strict diet. For the past few years, Criolipolisis has rapidly become a very popular non-invasive solution thanks to its fantastic results. It consists of the application of controlled cooling to targeted areas to reduce fat cells. The result is a smoother and leaner contour with no downtime.
3. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
If there is one celebrity that comes to mind when we think of Hyaluronic acid fillers is, with no doubt, Kylie Jenner. The number one celebrity with lip fillers revealed a few years ago, to have undergone several lip fillers injections since her thin lips were a big insecurity for her growing up.
The use of hyaluronic acid fillers has increased over the last few years. Some of the main benefits of using HA dermal fillers are their capacity to attract water and therefore promote hydration, as well as leaving a plumping and augmentation effect on your skin and body. They also can be treated for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles since they have a filling effect.
There are several looks you can approach by injecting hyaluronic acid into your body and face. For example, the facial contouring effect you get by injecting hyaluronic acid into your jawline and chin to obtain a sharper and more defined look.
HYAcorp facial fillers products for the face will help you recover skin hydration, stimulate collagen and elastin production as well as reduce wrinkles. You can also add volume, definition, and sharpness to some areas of your face such as the jawline, chin, lips, and cheek. Besides facial treatments using hyaluronic acid, you can also shape or contour your body with the hyaluronic acid body fillers.
HYAcorp body fillers are some of the most popular fillers for the body. HYAcorp MLF1 and HYAcorp MLF2 can add volume and tone your buttocks, correct the hip dips and any concave deformities, augments calves and reduce cellulite. It is a simple procedure, no more than 1 hour, where the product is injected into the desired areas with local anesthesia. You can see an immediate result and an improved finishing over the next weeks. There is no downtime and the treatment can last up to 24 months.

4. LED Light Therapy
LED phototherapy is a technique that consists of using "cold light" for skin care. It involves exposing the area to be treated (skin, hair, nails...) to a medium-intensity light using a very powerful laser. It works for the texture of your skin, fine lines, wrinkles, skin blemishes, acne scars, wound healing, and premature aging.
5. Chemical Peels
Chemical peeling is a very popular treatment among Hollywood celebrities such as Eva Longoria, who claims to be a fan of it.
This treatment is used to renew the most superficial layers of the skin and to correct skin blemishes, wrinkles, and marks. The application time doesn’t exceed 30 minutes and has no side effects. The results are very noticeable, leaving smoother and tighter skin.
These are some of the treatments that Hollywood stars choose to get to have beautiful and glowy skin and an overall radiant look. Although not many of them admit to having a bit of “work” done, the truth is that cosmetic procedures are not taboo anymore and people feel more confident talking about them.
Having access to this information allows individuals to do proper research when it comes to getting any sort of treatment done.
