Courteney Cox Anti-Ageing Laser Skin Treatment
31 Oct 2014
It will be quite a challenge to find someone who doesn't know about the TV show Friends, even if they weren't a huge fan. One of the stars of the show that dominated the 90's has openly admitted to using non-surgical procedures to slow down the effects of time on her skin.
Courteney Cox, aka Monica Gellar, talked about her treatments back in 2013 while on The Tonight Show. The actress shared her fears of ageing with the host, Jay Leno about how she's scared about time quickly catching up with her and suddenly looking much older.
"I'm a big laser believer. I really think they are the wave of the future."
During the show, Cox had recently had a Fraxel-like skin peel on her hands and was hiding them from view so no one could see the skin peeling. The star is a firm supporter of non-surgical, laser treatments to help prolong the appearance of ageing.
Fraxel works by targeting damaged skin (whether it's wrinkles, acne scars or pigmentation) with microscopic laser columns. The immediate after-effects of the treatment are similar to mild sunburn - as Cox was experiencing during the interview - but soon the skin will feel softer with a more even tone.
Getting proper aftercare advice is essential so you know exactly what to expect and how to deal with any adverse reactions.
There are numerous types of skin peels available which don't use lasers. Peels work by removing dead skin cells and promoting new cell growth.
These treatments aren't reserved for the rich and famous but only by talking to qualified dermatologists can you find which one is appropriate for you. Going to a clinic with experienced doctors and nurses is the only way to know you're in safe hands and you'll get optimum results.
