Celebrities Are Aging in Reverse—Here's Why

In Hollywood, 50 is the new 30. Thanks to their youthful-looking skin, some celebrities appear to have hardly aged a day in years. What gives? Here’s the truth about how the stars maintain their ageless complexions.

The keyword is maintenance. Celebrities with great skin (we can think of a few named Jennifer) are doing a little something here and there regularly to maintain a natural, ageless appearance—as opposed to undergoing one big procedure that looks unnatural and overdone.

Looking to achieve similar results? Combining Ulthera with injectables, laser, and topicals will get you there. Ulthera is a non-invasive tightening procedure that uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the skin to contract, lift, and produce collagen exactly where you need it most (think your neck, jawline, and brow). Meanwhile, injectables and topicals are used to replenish lost volume by boosting collagen production even more.

Now through July 31, Compass is running a summertime special on celeb-worthy treatment packages. But a limited number are available, so be sure to secure your spot today! Packages start at $1,650 and can be used through the end of the year. See results after just one visit, and experience dramatic improvement over time as new collagen works to smooth, tighten, and lift the skin.

You don’t have to be a celebrity to attain an age-defying complexion. Contact us to set up a consultation, and one of our knowledgeable specialists will work with you to create a personalized plan to begin aging in reverse.

3 Biggest Sunscreen Mistakes

Don’t get caught red-faced this summer. Sun exposure ages the skin faster than anything else. Protect yourself by applying SPF daily and avoiding these common sunscreen mistakes.

Mistake No. 1: Not Reapplying Sunscreen
“Sunscreen acts a bit like a sponge, so it absorbs,” explains Dr. Julia Carroll. “If there’s more [sun] for it to absorb, you’ll wear through it faster. If there’s less for it to absorb, you won’t wear through it quite as quickly.” Aim to reapply every two hours or so.

Mistake No. 2: Thinking You’re Allergic
“Sometimes you’ll be out in the sun, you’ll put the product on, and you’ll get some redness," Carroll says. "Often [that’s] probably poor application or expired sunscreens, or people that don’t reapply, so they’re interpreting a sunburn as an allergic reaction.” Mineral-based sunscreens tend to be less irritating to those with sensitive skin.

Mistake No. 3: Focusing Only on the Face
“If you’re already dressed in your outfit, you don’t want to get sunscreen all over you. If you can put it on in the morning when you’re just out of the shower, you’re more likely to get it down your neck and down your chest and get at all the [important] areas,” Carroll adds.
