Despite approaching 50, actress Demi Moore could easily be mistaken for a woman in her twenties. In fact, she and her 22-year-old daughter Rumer Willis look more like sisters than mother and daughter. The star of 2003's Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, Demi's looks have landed her in dozens of magazines over the years. Being married to Ashton Kutcher certainly doesn't hurt things, either.
But her youthful beauty is also thanks to something more: expensive cosmetic treatments. According to the UK Daily Mail (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1332391/Is-Demi-Moores-youthful-look-weekly-1-900-facial.html?ito=feeds-newsxml), her yearly bill for skincare alone tops £100,000 (more than $150,000), expensive even by Hollywood standards.
A side-by-side comparison of photos of Demi from 2007 and 2010 also shows that she's undergone more than skincare treatments. Lines visible around her mouth and eyes in 2007 have all but disappeared three years later. Apparently she's a big fan of the Thermage skin-tightening technique, which has recently been creating quite a buzz throughout the world. But at £1,900 ($3000) per treatment, Thermage is a still a bit too pricy for many to afford, save for top Hollywood actresses.
Though Thermage skin tightening treatments might not be affordable yet, expect these cutting-edge methods to make it into the mainstream in a matter of months. This non-surgical technique uses a radio frequency, sending heat deep into the skin. It's intended to tighten existing collagen and stimulate new collagen growth, resulting in a smoother and tighter appearance.
According to one source, Demi is always searching for the next anti-aging treatment, and sometimes undergoes Thermage as a beauty boost as often as once per week. After hitting 40 eight years ago, Demi allegedly spent upwards of £200,000 ($300,000) on plastic surgery from head to toe, including liposuction, breast implants, facial work, and even tightening the loose skin on her sagging knees.
Would you undergo more than $300,000 in plastic surgery to maintain your youthful appearance? What about weekly cosmetic treatments?
