We certainly CANNOT prove that any of these high-profile celebrities receive cosmetic enhancements like fillers to add beautiful volume + contours to their facial features. But if you ask us.....YES...of course--- they are probably frequent clients.

So, let's look at the hyaluronic fillers---Voluma, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, to name a few.
These injectables are NOT cheap and DO wear off after 4-6 months. One syringe can cost between $500-$700 and more.
And the OLDER you are, the MORE syringes you need. We did not know that.
Here's what Dr. Brandith Irwin, a board-certified dermatologist, explains at her educational website, SkinTour.com:
"Depending on your facial type, a good way to think about this is .....approximately one syringe per decade. (This is true for Sculptra also), So... if you're 53......a base would be about 5 syringes with probably about 2-3 annually after that. I would vote strongly for doing those 5 syringes in 2-3 sessions about 2-4 weeks apart. The quality of the work will be better."
Interesting information. Expensive beauty treatments for the average person, but not so much for a wealthy celebrity.
So, are these facial fillers worth the big dent in your beauty budget?
Or is makeup contouring cheaper + the best way to sculpt a face?
