Who? Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer has been quoted saying she “love lasers and Ultherapy”.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound to tighten the muscle layer of the face, the non-surgical ultrasound treatment stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin deep within the skin.
Dermatologist Dr Tracy Mountford at Cosmetic Skin Clinic said: “Ultherapy is unlike other lasers, surgery, and other technologies because it treats deep beneath the skin’s surface delivering an exact amount of ultrasound energy at the precise depths and temperature.
“The heat energy triggers a natural response under the skin, encouraging the body’s own natural regenerative process to produce new collagen and elastin to give a durable lasting, lifting effect.”

Who? Alessandra Ambrosio
Victoria Secret Model, Alessandra shared the secret behind her natural youthful glow is vitamin C.
In a recent interview with The Telegraph Alessandra revealed, “My motto is ‘forever vacation’. It’s how I live; it’s about being natural. I’m obsessed with skincare – vitamin c treatments are my thing”.
Dermatologist Dr. Justine Hextall, on behalf of The Harley Medical Group, said: “Vitamin C is an excellent anti-oxidant that protects against free radical damage that is produced by the exposure to UV, pollution amongst others.
“By protecting the skin from effects of free radicals it reduces the damage this causes such as skin pigmentation issues and degradation of collagen.
“Sometimes skin becomes dry and dull when using topical Vitamin C at home, and a professional treatment such as the DermaQuest C Infusion Peel (£125 available nationwide) will make a significant improvement."
She continued: “The benefit here is the use of the superficial peel to remove dead skin cells and also allow greater penetration of the vitamin C. After this treatment using hydrating serums will leave skin looking plumped and smooth.
“Having professional treatments also allows the safe use of higher dose topical exfoliants and in the long term will improve the condition of skin and slowly improve dyspigmentation.”
