Fine lines and wrinkles are an inevitable part of the ageing process – and at some point, affect us all. While some people feel the need to look younger for their job, celebrities are perhaps under even more pressure to maintain a youthful appearance.
With this in mind, many of them visit Anti-Ageing experts and undergo all manner of treatments in a bid to turn back the clock. Here are some of the weirder Anti-Ageing treatments they get.
Dermal Fillers and Line & Wrinkle treatments are both common and popular temporary Anti-Ageing solutions – but Facial Contouring takes it one step further to prolong the results. Rather than just the problem area being treated, patients are administered varied amounts of Dermal Filler into different parts of the face to take into account how it will age over time. This leaves a natural and longer-lasting result.
Human Growth Hormone
We naturally produce Human Growth Hormone but once we reach our 20s, our bodies produce a lower amount. For patients who are looking for improved energy, health and happiness, as well as better nails, skin and hair, it’s possible to have this hormone pumped into you via a drip.
Another popular treatment endorsed by celebrities involves regenerating parts of the patient’s DNA. Each DNA strand has a ‘cap’ on the end known as a talomere. As we age, our DNA strands become damaged, preventing the cells from doing their job. For this treatment, the length of a patient’s talomeres is measured to determine how well the body is ageing. To revitalise the body’s cells, patients are prescribed a product known as TA-65 which helps to slow down ageing by healing skin cells faster and plumping out fine lines and wrinkles.
The Vampire Facelift
Finally, Kim Kardashian made the headlines when she underwent a Vampire Facelift – an Anti-Ageing treatment which involves taking blood from the patient, retrieving the healthy platelets which help regenerate tissue and injecting it into the parts of the face which have aged the fastest.
