Looking Good

Why Does Paris Hilton Still Look 25?

You’ll be surprised to learn the lengths some A-Listers go to to look their best.

While the world has embraced Hygge and ice-cold plunge baths, it takes more than sub-zero temperatures to keep Hollywood A-listers in red-carpet-ready shape. Here are a few treatments that push the envelope beyond the vampire facial (a favorite of Kim Kardashian) or a vaginal steaming. (We’re looking at you, Gwyneth.)

Beyond Colonics

Speaking of Ms. Paltrow, you can forget colonics—so last decade. Rectal Ozone Therapy has entered the chat, thanks to a recent article in InStyle where the Goop founder mentioned it was “one of the weirdest treatments” she has ever tried. 

Apparently, the ozone therapy gas used to treat diseases is made from a medical-grade oxygen source that has been shown to break down the bacterial cells. It can also stop fungal growth at certain stages, such as with yeast infections. This treatment has been used to help with ailments ranging from the common cold to DNA repair—and can be blown into the body through your bottom. If that sounds daunting, the treatment can also be administered through an IV at places such as Next Health on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood. 


Tighten Head to Toe

The beauty equivalent of the Swiss Army knife, EXION offered at Modern Esthetics, is microneedling, laser, and radiofrequency therapy rolled into one. The esthetician applies a gel to the face, neck, or torso, then a hand-held wand is pushed against the skin surface while heating up. The result, which the manufacturer claims can treat the body head-to-toe, will be firmer-looking skin with less wrinkles. (We’d like to see the unwrinkled toes.) 

If you want a little inside-the body-cavity therapy, you can also have your pelvic floor tightened with EMSELLA, which will help to relieve urge and urinary incontinence by stimulating thousands of pelvic floor muscle contractions in just a single treatment. It is purportedly like Kegel exercise without any effort—all you need to do is sit in a chair and check your emails.

Robot Manicures 

AI is taking over the tech world, and it is trickling down to our weekly grooming routines as well. Clockwork in Beverly Hills is a pioneer in robotics for the beauty industry with its fully autonomous robot that uses AI and 3D technology to paint your nails in under 10 minutes (but don’t expect shaping and cuticle trimming). A touch screen guides you through the process, and you can still pick your favorite colors from brands such as Essie, OPI, and Zoya.


Bye Bye Double Chin

The Face Gym on Sunset in the 1 Hotel offers a muscle memory workout facial with the cutest little tools. For the double chin specifically, try a jaw massage at Kosha in Sherman Oaks, where bare hands are also used to massage and manipulate the neck. Clients include Pamela Anderson and Miley Cyrus. 


Get a New Glow

Milk + Honey Day spa in tony Brentwood is known for their Medical Aesthetics at the hands of nurse practitioner Melanie Torres. Reportedly a step up from traditional fillers, SKINVIVE is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplet injectable within the US to improve skin smoothness of the cheeks. It is often referred to as a “skin booster” rather than a dermal filler, as it is designed to add hydration and improve the quality of the skin rather than add volume or definition.

Good Vibrations
The Fairmont Spa Century Plaza boasts a Himalayan salt room, a samarium for air oxidation, a Hammam, and aromatherapy steam rooms. The spa channels fundamental energy through frequency waves in a selection of treatments. Feeling like you need a vacation? Lie on the Biohacking anti-gravity bed for a 30-minute power nap with a NuCalm® headset and wake up refreshed and ready to tackle the 405 Freeway. 

Taking the sound bath to another level, the Matahari Journey is a 120-minute ceremony with a harmonizing ritual of Tibetan sound bowls and inhalation vessels with essential oils. But it doesn’t end there. Ancient Breathing Techniques, followed by a detoxifying raindrop therapy massage to align the seven chakras, are also part of the experience.  Align, not align, who knows? It feels great.


Stem Cell Banking

Dripology in Santa Monica provides standard medspa services (such as Morpheus8 and SkinPen), but they go one futuristic step further: they pair each treatment with specialized IV therapies optimizing the treatment results. 

They were also the first clinical partner for Acorn Biolabs, which extracts stem cells from hair follicles which are cryogenically frozen, and used later as needed. Why? Well, the idea here is that you will never again be as young as you are right this second—so why not save stem cells from your (relative) youth  for some future date of your decrepitude? Research shows that regenerative medicine has the potential to help rejuvenate our skin, recover hair loss, support injury recovery, and improve our health and longevity. Celebrities on ice right now? Paris Hilton, Katie Perry, and Camilla Cabello.

New Filler Needs

Hollywood is hooked on Ozempic; but while stars from Jessica Simpson to Sharon Osborne have discussed the pros and cons, there is a consensus— and concern—about facial volume loss, leading to sagging and hollowness. Not surprisingly then, “Ozempic Face” has created a surge of younger demographics looking into fat grafting and other ways to plump up (a reverse of another recent viral trend, buccal fat removal.) 

Face Enhancement Expert Dr. Peter Lee, a board-certified plastic surgeon in LA, can fill baby fill. “Fat is gently removed from areas such as the stomach or thighs and injected into desired facial regions providing volume and rejuvenation,” he says. This fat transfer method requires minimal downtime, so you can return to your routines the next day.

Facials and Sushi

For those who are still eating, there is a new place in Venice for facials, art, and sushi. ALBION is a Japanese skincare brand (since 1956) that has opened its first-ever garden facial flagship facility and store in Venice. Where else can you  experience a luxury facial amid the outdoor flora not far from the beach, then grab a bite of sushi, avocado toast, or a matcha latte at the counter? Only in L.A, people.
