They say there’s no such thing as ugly people, just poor people, which means if you have the budget, you can transform yourself from a frog to a prince (or princess) in no time. Celebrities do it all the time, whether they want to admit it or not, so we’re taking a look at the doctors responsible for some of Hollywood’s hottest faces.
Dr David Colbert
Just over the pond you have founder of the New York Dermatology Clinic, Dr David Colbert, who is best known for The Triad Facial. The 30-minute treatment combines exfoliation, lasers and a chemical peel and has famous fans like Angelina Jolie and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Dr Colbert also has an at home treatment Colbert MD Intensify Facial Discs, available in the UK.
Dr Harold Lancer
If you’re in LA, dermatologist Dr Lancer is the guy to go to as he promises to perfect the texture of your skin, and with celebrity fans like Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian we believe him. If LA is a little out of the way than you like for your treatments you can pick up a bottle of Lancer Lift Serum Intense from his skincare collection which is available in Harrods.
Dr Howard Murad
Described as the ‘Father of Internal Skincare’ Dr Murad is a leading visionary who is known for his scientific discovery of The Science of Cellular Water™, which identifies the common denominator of aging and illness as cellular water loss. His ground breaking skincare formulas were among the first to achieve significant measurable anti-aging results without surgery. He counts Kristin Cavallari and Kim Cattrall as patients – as well as over 50,000 others since he began practising medicine.
Dr Tamsin Hayward
Ban those irritating fine lines with highly qualified and experienced General Practitioner and Cosmetic Doctor, Tamsin Hayward, who specialises in wrinkle-reducing injections i.e. Dermal fillers. Owner of The Wrinkle Dr in Fulham, Tamsin is the person to go to for cosmetic injectables; not only is she a walking embodiment of her treatments, she offers local anaesthetic cream to all clients prior to all injectable treatments to ensure a comfortable and pain-free experience. Any newbies to the cosmetic injection process who are a little nervous can be put at ease as she is known for her gentle injection technique and natural results. We’re even more excited about her eyelash growth treatments though, which has a 100% success rate and promises to give you (real) thick luscious lashes in a matter of weeks.
Jamie Sherrill is a Registered Nurse and Global Skincare Expert who offers non-surgical beauty solutions with cosmetic lasers for things like skin perfecting treatments, injectables fillers and laser hair removal. Her and her team claim to transform your skin and sculpt a more youthful appearance in a single office visit – result. She counts Nicole Richie, Rita Ora, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Paris Hilton and Kirsten Dunst as celebrity fans amongst many others.
Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh
If it’s good enough for Cindy Crawford, it’s good enough for us. The ‘King of Botox’ has clinics in London and Paris where he aims to help to slow the ageing process. He has created his own anti-ageing skincare range too with high concentrations of the most effective ingredients to create targeted skincare products; we recommend his serum repair that helps to boost collagen levels.
Dr Jonathan Christopher
When you want LA treatments without having to leave London, Dr Jonny is the man for you. Priding himself on keeping patients looking natural (no Croydon facelift victims here) celebrity endorsements include some bone fide Hollywood A listers and and an endorsement for his pioneering mole detection clinic (the first of its kind in London) from channel 4’s, 10 Years Younger, Nicky Hambleton Jones – on an unrelated note, did we mention he is a whizz kid at anti wrinkle treatments and youthful vitamin injections? He’s also the founder of EpicDermis Medical, where he works at clinics in SW London including the Northcote Road, performing treatments like facial rejuvenation and non surgical face lifts using fillers, microfillers and Dermapen, which can also minimise pore size and improve wrinkles amongst other things.
Dr Marko Lens can be found in his private London clinic where he performs minimally invasive non-surgical facial rejuvenation and specialised surgical care for patients with moles, benign skin lesions and skin cancers. He studied Japanese Kampo medicine, which is based on the healing properties of botanicals that helped him to develop his skincare line Zelens. The products, of which Carey Mulligan loves, combine a scientific approach with natural plant-derived ingredients. His Absolute Face Oil contains 22 oils that help to reinforce the skin’s natural barrier and boosts moisture levels.
Dr Patricia Wexler
Kiss crow’s-feet and lip lines goodbye with Dr Pat who has been regularly featured in New York Magazine’s “Best Doctors”. She was one of the first dermatologists to use wrinkle reducing treatments and prides herself on achieving only the most natural results. She also pioneered tumescent liposuction and fat transplantation. Donna Karan, Christie Brinkley, Ellen Barkin and Barbra Streisand are among her clients.
Dr Pauline Hill
With Taylor Swift pulling in over $5 billion last year you may think that only celebrities can afford high end treatments but you’d be wrong. One of UK’s top organic skincare experts, Dr Hill has launched her own affordable range using plant extracts and superfoods to correct and improve the condition of the skin counting Sienna Miller as a fan. Available at Debenhams, her Nourish Kale Enzymatic Exfoliating Cleanser works as a cleanser and mask to correct and improve the condition of the skin.
Dr Yannis Alexandrides
A pioneer in innovative cosmetic treatments, Dr Yannis was among the first in his field to advocate non-surgical procedures to his clients with his ethos being that surgery is always the last resort. He has collaborated with space scientists that were responsible for the wellbeing of astronauts to create 111SKIN: an advanced anti-ageing product range. The range combines Dr Yannis’ knowledge of effectively targeting the signs of ageing with space scientists’ expertise in protecting the skin against environmental damage.
