You Mean It’s Microdermabrasion, Not Heredity?

Skin Spa New York – The secret is out.  Although many of our most famous celebrities can boast having a substantial advantage due to their genetics, it takes a combination of preventative work as well as help from professional skin care facilities such as Skin Spa New York to keep the glowing complexion we all expect from our Hollywood stars.  From chemical peels to microdermabrasion, here are the skin regimens of the stars:

Celebs get Oscar-ready with luxe beauty treatments

Glamour hits its glitziest this weekend. But how do stars get that certain je ne sais glow? Along with stylists and makeup artists, the glitterati enlist other beauty specialists to reach red-carpet heights. Here’s how a few of Hollywood’s finest get their skin and hair to shine.

Michelle Williams

Nominated as Best Actress for her role in “Blue Valentine,” Williams (right) routinely slips into the office of Manhattan dermatologist David Colbert for a “Triad” treatment. That’s a $400 process that Colbert has also performed on Angelina Jolie and Naomi Watts. “Michelle has beautiful, delicate skin, but she flies back and forth between New York and LA, and the climate on a plane is drier than the Mojave Desert,” says Colbert. “The Triad helps lock moisture in.” Dead cells are removed from the face, neck and décolletage with a fine microdermabrasion, and then a Cutera Xeo laser sends 3,000 pulses of laser light deep into the skin to smooth fine lines and even out irregularities.

During the week prior to her Grammy performance, Paltrow visited Sonya Dakar’s skin clinic in Beverly Hills, getting the $350 apple stem-cell anti-aging facial, which uses stem cells extracted from a rare Swiss apple, the Uttwiler Spatlauber. Her skin was peeled with a mix of the cells, grapes and lactic acid from milk, and then an apple mask was baked on with a light-emitting diode (LED). Paltrow also received a $3,000 “super tighten” lifting session with electrodes. “The result is the closest thing we have to a facelift,” explains Dakar.


Called the “Madonna Lift” in honor of the Material Girl’s stellar eye structure, this $1,200 procedure is the beauty secret of choice for singer Shakira. Before appearing at the Grammys, Shakira had Manhattan dermatologist Bruce Katz eviscerate her fine lines with a CO2 Fraxel laser, which drills
