After taking one look at celebrity Courteney Cox of “Friends” and “Cougar Town” fame, you’d be hard pressed to believe that she’s in her 50s. Of course, no one looks that youthful without at least a little bit of professional intervention.
Most celebrities are very private about their cosmetic treatments, which is good for their personal privacy, but bad for those of us who really want the scoop on how to look as youthful as a 50-something celebrity.
The good news for the rest of us, however, is that Courteney Cox isn’t one of those private celebrities. She doesn’t keep her beauty regimen a secret, but openly shares the different anti-aging treatments she’s received over the years to preserve her youthful look, skin care tips and healthy lifestyle choices.
Ready to look as youthful and rejuvenated as a Hollywood starlet? Keep reading to find out what aesthetic treatments Courteney Cox swears by and then visit us at Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center to try these aesthetic treatments for yourself. After all, why should celebrities get all the perks?
Ultherapy is a cutting-edge technology that uses ultrasound waves to tighten and lift your skin for a more youthful appearance. When used on your face, the result is a fuller look with a healthy glow, but can also be used on the neck and decolletage (chest and collarbone area). The ultrasonic waves penetrate the bottom layer under the skin to help regenerate collagen growth, one of the natural building blocks of youthful skin. Ultherapy skin tightening is the only FDA-cleared procedure of its kind and has been clinically proven to show amazing results similar to a facelift surgery without the need for anesthesia, needles or scalpels. As a non-surgical skin tightening and lifting option, it is quickly gaining popularity among celebrities (including Courteney Cox and her best gal pal Jennifer Aniston), top media outlets, renowned plastic surgeons and dermatologists, and our amazing Beverly Hills patients.
Botox, and its competitor Dysport, is injected in different areas of your face to smooth wrinkles and relax the muscles that cause fine lines to appear over time, such as the forehead. While you may think that preventing muscle movement can be detrimental to an actress like Courteney Cox who needs to be able to express herself in front of the camera, the frozen faces that are frequently depicted in the media are far from the norm. When performed by a skilled, licensed injection specialist, Botox should look natural and, despite what many people believe, no one can really tell that you had any work done. Our patients who have received Botox just look like a slightly younger version of themselves, while also appearing well-rested and energetic.
Botox isn’t just for celebrities, either. Just about everyone is getting Botox or Dysport treatments to ward off the signs of aging, including businessmen. Compared to some other anti-aging treatments, Botox is very affordable and typically lasts 3-4 months, or more for some patients. Other celebrities who have admitted to loving Botox include Denzel Washington, Patrick Dempsey and Kelly Ripa.
Fraxel laser treatment helps minimize or remove your skin imperfections such as brown spots, facial redness, blemishes and scars.. People who have brown spots, red spots from blemishes or other unsightly skin markings often see results quickly with Fraxel. Combining the gentleness of a non-ablative treatment with the effectiveness of an ablative treatment, Fraxel targets the damaged skin with unprecedented precision, allowing providers to zap only affected skin, leaving healthy skin untouched. Side effects are mild, and there is almost no downtime with this treatment.
Fraxel is often used for the face and chest area, but many patients request the treatment for more youthful looking hands, which is exactly what Courteney did, as she confessed to Ellen DeGeneres when she was interviewed on her hit talk show.
In addition to professional facial rejuvenation treatments, Courteney Cox emphasizes the importance of moisturizing skin regularly to maintain a healthy and youthful look. She also attributes her youthful, healthy look with drinking ample amounts of water and maintaining an exercise routine.
