Demi Moore knows what to do and when to do it
April 22, 2011
If you want to age like 48-year-old Demi Moore, so do the readers of Allure. In a recent poll Demi received the most votes as the celebrity who has aged the best. How does she do it? In 2008 Demi told David Letterman that she had leeches suck her blood, but that’s about all she admits to. Joan Kron, Allure’s contributing editor-at-large, does not subscribe to the leech theory. She found a plastic surgeon who lectures on ideal facial beauty proportions and asked him to analyze Demi’s face, indicating procedures Moore has most likely undergone to preserve her beauty. Kron sagely comments, “What can’t be bought is the judgment to know when enough is enough. To age like Demi, less is Moore.”
To showcase striking hazel eyes, Demi might have had her frown lines softened and Crow’s feet minimized with injections of Botox or Dysport; three times a year in both areas will do the trick. When injected above the eyebrows, Botox or Dysport can also give a ten-degree lift to the arch and a slight lift to the tail. To get rid of under eye troughs, Demi may have said “fill ‘er up.” Plastic surgeons can inject your own fat, which will last 2 years or more, or hyaluronic acid, which will last up to a year.
Demi’s lips show no signs of augmentation or vertical lines. Age revealing lip lines can be filled every six months with hyaluronic acid used together with Botox or Dysport. The jawbones and teeth recede with age; but veneers not only provide a dazzling smile, like Demi’s, but also restore volume. Demi is just at the cusp of the sagging jawline age. To camouflage, doctors use Juvederm or Restylane injections, which last up to 18 months.
Too much dieting could have made Demi’s neck cords protrude, but injections of Botox or Dysport make cords recede. Necklines can be softened with mini doses of hyaluronic acid fillers in combination with Botox or Dysport.
Of course, you might wonder which of these age-defying procedures are right for you. Like Demi, you want to look beautiful but natural. Bring this list to a board-certified plastic surgeon from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Only a face-to-face evaluation will tell you which procedures, in your case, will provide you with “less is Moore” results.
