The secret is out! 10 cosmetic procedures celebrities swear by.


Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Sofia Vegara, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Winslet, Sharon Stone, Jennifer Lopez, Kardashians and the list goes on. Hollywood celebrities are considered beauty and fashion icons by many. Contrary to common belief, most Hollywood celebrities avoid going under the knife. Those who do, often make headlines when the surgery goes wrong or the results are too noticeable. So what is the secret behind flawless skin and youthful looks of the A-Listers?  

We’ve asked Dr. Ehsan Jadoon MBBS, FACAM, FCPCA from Medaesthetics, one of Australia’s leading Boutique Cosmetic Clinics, the ins and outs of Hollywood celebrity cosmetic treatments.


Are there any super expensive and secret treatments which only the millionaires can afford?

“Before we talk about this, it is important to understand that almost all Celebrities are constantly under the watchful eyes of Paparazzi’s and their cameras. When not in front of the Camera, the celebrities have extensive showbiz and other social commitments where they have to look their best. Hence, any cosmetic treatments or surgeries with major downtime is out of question for most.”


Are those treatments available in Australia?

“Fortunately yes! In fact, almost all cosmetic treatments available in Beverly Hills Medi Spas are available here in Australia at high end cosmetic medical clinics.”


So how do they do it?

“The answer is simple; most A-Listers get minimally invasive cosmetic skin rejuvenation procedures on regular intervals (6 to 12 weekly) to maintain their skin health and reverse the signs of ageing.”
