The Fountain of Youth at Your Fingertips By ANNA JANE GROSSMAN ON a recent flight from New York to Los Angeles, Chris Salgardo noticed an attractive woman sitting a few rows ahead of him. “She looked like she was in her 40′s,” he said. “She was beautiful with great skin. She had an overall very supple complexion.” This is a significant compliment coming from Mr. Salgardo, the president of Kiehl’s U.S.A., a skin- and hair-care company. But then he looked down and saw the woman’s hands hammering away on her laptop. “They were veiny, crepey and had brown spots all over them,” Mr. Salgardo said. Suddenly, his estimation of her age jumped at least a decade. “The hands were a dead giveaway,” he said. Once upon a time, people became older and it showed. Thanks to dermatologists and plastic surgeons who made it their mission to tackle visible age, future generations – at least those who will be able to afford it – may never have to endure sagging jowls or droopy eyelids. But the war being waged against dark spots, ropey veins and the various other symptoms of the no-longer-youthful hand is a relatively recent battle, one that can be more challenging than combating facial wrinkles. The skin on the hands is generally thinner than facial skin. It has the consistency of an eyelid and may be more sensitive to the indignities of time. For some people, the battle is being fought at night, with moisturizing gloves and thick coats of specially formulated hand creams – a skin care sector that has grown more than 60 percent globally in the last four years, according to a July report from the Nielsen Company, a marketing research company in Illinois.

These Stars Look Over-inflated! Have these celebrities been plumping up with fillers to stay young and beautiful? Their makeovers have left them looking like they’re ready to pop IN TOUCH MARCH 22, 2010 The latest beauty treatments have turned back time for some women – but unfortunately, they also seem to have turned some Hollywood stars into alien creatures! “Fillers like Juvederm XC, Restylane, Sculptra and Radiesse add volume so you can look young again,” explains Dr. Gerald D. Ginsberg, medical director at TriBeCa MedSpa in NYC. But it’s easy to get carried away, resulting in fish lips and chipmunk cheeks – and that’s in addition to melon-sized boobs. “Women start to believe, ‘If a little is good, more must be better.’” says Dr. Michael Salzhauer of The Real Dr. Miami in Miami. And when it conies to filling up, it appears that these celebs forgot to say when! SHE CAN’T HIDE IT While Madonna has said, “I’m not going to have a press conference if I have plastic surgery,” Dr. Salzhauer thinks the Material Girl, 51, has packed 4 cc of filler into each cheek. SHE KNOWS IT’S BAD Lisa Rinna told In Touch she “went too far” with Juvederm injections in her cheeks. “I don’t want to look weird,” admits the star, who also has permanent silicone implants in her lips. KIM HAS A NEW FACE Lil’ Kim loves being the center of attention, but now it’s her face that has everyone shocked – she looks like a different person! “It looks like she injected apples into her cheeks!” notes Dr. Ginsberg. LINDSAY’S FULLY LOADED Lindsay Lohan says, “It’s sad and disgusting that anybody would have work done at my age.” But Dr. Salzhauer thinks the 23-year-old got “way too much filler.” […]
