Kim Kardashian’s Flawless Skin

Kim Kardashian makes regular trips to the dermatologist to maintain her flawless complexion using the laser. We’ve heard a lot about the benefits of Fraxel laser resurfacing of late, but we were curious to find out a few things before jumping under the laser, for example: Is there a lot of downtime? And, what should we expect on the day?

What is Fraxel, Exactly?

“Fraxel is the name of a particular brand of laser that uses fractionated laser therapy. So why it’s called fractionated is the way that it delivers the energy, so it delivers lots of microscopic laser energy into the skin and creates a column of injury and as the body goes through its natural healing process that column is shed. So with that goes excess pigmentation and abnormal cells and because it’s also creating an injury to the skin, it also stimulates the body to lay out new collagen which is one of the main support structures, so you get the filling and smoothing effect with it as well.”

Fraxel, which costs from £575 to £2,000 a session, depending on the size of the area to be treated, is billed as a ‘revolutionary’ fractional laser treatment that can help diminish fine lines and wrinkles and renew the skin’s surface, giving a ‘fresh, youthful glow’.  Jennifer Aniston and Ellen Barker also openly admit to being fans of the treatment, which suits stars in the public eye, as the treatment is quick and painless, and requires no downtime or enforced recovery behind closed doors.

Kim Kardashian keeps her skin glowing by regularly getting her face ‘vacuumed’ and undergoing mushroom facials.

‘Kim has been getting her face vacuumed once a week. The treatment uses a supersonic suction device that draws out blackheads, dead cells and impurities and hydrates dry skin by improving the blood flow and the lymphatic system. She also loves Japanese mushroom facial peels using reishi mushrooms for making her skin more elastic,’ quoted a source as saying.
