Christie Brinkley is always honest, whether she’s showing off her gray hair or talking about ageism. And now that she’s 69, the former supermodel, who is all about aging gracefully, is talking about the reality of cosmetic procedures, the treatments she’s tried in the past, and the ones she’s still doing today.
Brinkley just posted a nearly seven-minute video on Instagram in which she and her dermatologist talk about and show her favorite laser treatments. Brinkley captioned the video –
“If you have a copy of my Book, ‘Timeless Beauty’ you’ve already heard me rave about my dermatologist @drrobertanolik who counts laser technology as one of his specialties. He has been helping me fight back the ravages of my active outdoor lifestyle for years.”
“I wanted to share my #selfcare #laser adventure with all of you, because it’s great to know if something bothers you there’s probably a laser for it. And even if it’s a cosmetic choice it may be beneficial to the health of your skin.”
“I may joke around in the video, but if you’re a beach bum like me doing annual body scans for skin cancer is no joke. It’s a necessary part of any wellness plan.”
“I was delighted that my treatment would not just eventually look good but BE GOOD for the health of my skin. Thank you DrA+ for your expertise, great advice, and humor! I promise to use my sunblock every day!”
Once the camera began rolling, Brinkley introduced her dermatologist, Robert Anolik, M.D., and stated that she is “here at his office trying to look glam without makeup” before discussing the sun-related skin issues she experiences, such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles.
To the extreme, it seems like nearly every actress has a tale to tell about plastic surgery. One of them is Emily Blunt. A young American actress who was in the films Edge of Tomorrow and The Devil Wears Prada:
She even mentioned that her mother had a squamous cell, a type of skin cancer, on her lip. Her doctor explained while discussing the dangers of sun exposure –
“We ask all of our patients regardless of whether they’re getting cosmetic work done or not, just to make sure that they’re using sunscreen and being careful.”
“But we can battle it back and make the skin look healthier.”
Brinkley then said that a Fraxel laser, which “builds up surface collagen and then exfoliates” so that fine lines, pores, and texture can look better, is one way to deal with skin problems caused by the sun. “It helps make the skin actually, I feel, be healthier.”
Brinkley joked –
“And that’s why I want to use it, it has nothing to do with the wrinkles and fine lines.”
Brinkley then showed clips of her getting different laser treatments, “bathing” in numbing cream, and the effects of the treatments, which showed the star with a red face and a smile. “And now that I’ve done this, I’m going to recommit to making sure I have my sunblock on, even in the winter,” she said. Fans loved Brinkley’s candid video.
One fan wrote –
“You are always so beautiful, thank you for sharing your journey with us ❣️.”
Another added –
“Can you get any more fabulous?!?! Always so authentic and gracious with your time and experiences!!”
At 69, it’s safe to say that Brinkley looks as beautiful as she always has. The former supermodel posted a collage of throwback magazine covers for her last birthday and wrote that her “days were numbered” to make a point about getting older.
Brinkley wrote in the caption –
“Those days of hiding our age are over! I’m 69 and I feel GRATEFUL! I’ve learned that gratitude, health, and love are the keys to happiness! I have survived a lot, and what didn’t k!ll me, did indeed make me stronger, wiser, and I truly look at each day as a gift to celebrate!”
“So go ahead proclaim your age, celebrate the years! Make those numbers your b*tch! You got this! We got this! 👍🏼😘❤️”
