One look at George Clooney’s dreamy eyes and chiselled features makes it clear he was born beautiful.
The same is true of other gorgeous 50-plus showstoppers such as Naomi Watts, Elle MacPherson, Eric Bana and (of course!) Hugh Jackman. Each was unquestionably blessed with the gift of good genetics, but is there more to their enduring attractiveness than their DNA?
Here’s what Costhetics thinks about that.
Don’t Let Cosmetic Surgery’s Past Cloud Your Future
In years past, you may remember front-page headlines about cosmetic surgery gone wrong and horrific outcomes like:
- Gwyneth Paltrow– who claimed cosmetic injectables aged her and turned her into Joan Rivers.
- Jocelyn Wildenstein – dubbed the ‘lion lady’ after excessive surgery left her looking more (crazy) cat than human.
- Donatella Versace – ended up with an oversized upper lip after an augmentation treatment.
These cases are extreme, to be sure, but have left a lasting impression on people who fear they will end up in a similar situation.
Costhetics wants you to remember that the 21st Century has seen astonishing advancements in the world of aesthetic enhancement. Treatments and procedures have become more effective, as well as less invasive. The benefits have improved, too, yet a majority of people still think anything from injectables to surgery makes you look unnatural and obviously ‘fixed.’ A trip to Byron Bay makes that clear.
Ready for a Close-Up in Byron Bay
While we can’t yet call it the Hollywood of Australia, Byron Bay is a new epicentre of film and television production, with 17 projects in the works for 2021. In addition to excitement, energy, and economic advantages, the entertainment industry is also giving Byron residents a chance to get up close and personal with their favourite celebrities.
It’s quite something to be ordering a flat white and realise you’re standing next to Asher Keddie or Rose Byrne. Despite their age, they look flawless in the flesh. It makes you want to walk up and touch them and see if they are real. They are, with exquisite skin and trim figures most of us would kill for.
The good news is that you don’t have to kill for it. You can do what many celebrities do, in Byron and elsewhere, when their natural beauty starts to change. You can get help from cosmetic surgeons and aesthetic practitioners to keep your God-given beauty looking fresh, but natural. Costhetics wants you to know there are a host of things you can do to achieve natural-looking beauty at any age.
Facelift: More Natural than Before
Facelifts have long had a reputation for leaving patients looking as if they are in a wind tunnel, with facial skin pulled strangely tight. Due to the inherent limitations of standard facelift surgical techniques, undesirable outcomes were possible even in the hands of the best surgeons. Today, a deep-plane facelift can undo years of facial ageing and provide long-lasting, natural-looking results. This technique rejuvenates both the face and neck regions by removing excess skin, while also reshaping and tightening underlying musculature.
Collagen Induction Therapy: Improved Natural Skin Repair
The loss of collagen and elastin in facial skin due to ageing results in decreased firmness and elasticity, as well as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) uses studded rollers to create controlled wounds in the skin, triggering the body’s natural regenerative processes. At the same time, CIT makes it easier for healing ingredients to penetrate the skin, such as Plasma-Rich Platelet therapies. The result is skin that is naturally radiant with a youthful glow.
Go Au Naturel
The list of aesthetic procedures goes on and on, with new breakthroughs happening every day. So, whether you were born with it and want to maintain it or want to change something that’s always been a thorn in your aesthetic side, Costhetics says go for it…and by ‘it’ we mean a consultation with an experienced practitioner who can help you find your bliss safely
