Dermatologists Dissect Hollywood's Ageless Face Obsession

With the skyrocketing number of actors and actresses undergoing youth-enhancing procedures, dermatologists question the impact the silver screen’s ageless face has on mainstream America.

Anaheim, Calif. (PRWEB) December 29, 2009 -- Hollywood is notorious for its obsession with age, especially for female actresses. Carla Gugino, an actress of Night at the Museum, Race to Witch Mountain, and American Gangster fame, told Moves magazine, “It is bizarre, certainly in Hollywood, when you hit 23...people start to ask you, ‘How does it feel to get older?’” In an industry where every wrinkle, spot, and crease is dissected by the camera, the obsession for maintaining an ageless face certainly rages.

Even the largest stars in Hollywood, including Cher, Joan Collins, Demi Moore, Jane Fonda, and even purportedly Robert Redford, have succumbed to the fear of age, going under the knife to maintain a more youthful appearance. But what does this youthful obsession mean for both Hollywood and the real world?

In 2008 alone, there were more than 10 million plastic surgery procedures, with cosmetic eyelid being the third most popular procedure, according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Youth-enhancing nonsurgical procedures have also grown in prevalence, with Botox, hyaluronic acid, and chemical peels winning the top three slots of popularity.

As the Baby Boomer generation grows older and even the youngest Hollywood starlets take measures to stave off their first wrinkles, dermatologists are on the front lines, helping women and men maintain ageless faces. However, dermatologists have found that not all their patients want to undergo potentially painful procedures to achieve a more youthful face. Instead, many are opting for physician-grade anti-aging skin care lines.
