Celebs Don't Age, Right?

Well, we all know that this is b.s., so what are they doing? 


Dermal Injectable Fillers

That's right, ladies, up until now, injectables have been one of Hollywood’s best kept beauty secrets. But don't be fooled. Celebs are just like the rest of us, and just like the rest of us, with time, they start losing the volume and plumpness in their faces, and start getting wrinkles, too. 

So what are injectable fillers? Fillers are substances that are injected under the skin through small needles to plump up the soft tissue, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles providing a smooth, youthful, natural look and feel.

Juvederm (Juvederm Ultra Plus for deeper lines) and Restylane are very popular. These fillers are smooth consistency gels made of hyaluronic-acid. Hyaluronic-acid is normal component of the skin. It binds water and that's how the injections fill in the lines and wrinkles of the face. These fillers can also be used for enhancing facial features, such as sculpting cheeks and chin, and adding plumpness to lips.

The reason injectables are so popular is because they are a quick way to smooth facial lines (the procedure takes only a few minutes). Topical anesthetics are used to numb the skin, and downtime and discomfort are minimal. Lip injections may cause swelling, but patients are able to return to work the next day.



Though fillers last a few months, there is no correct answer as to how long their effects will last. Research has shown that Juvederm and Restylane can last up to four to six months. Juvederm Ultra Plus is thicker and last approximately 6-9 months.Theses procedures can cost about $500-$800 a needle.

So don't be fooled by the 40-year-old starlet who has no laugh lines. Trust me, she's probably had a little filling.

Hope this helps.
