The Secret to Christie Brinkley’s Youthful Appearance
Just last May, model Christie Brinkley returned to the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, this time as a 65-year-old mother of three. Miss Brinkley appeared in the magazine eight times from 1975 through 2004, including the perennial cover of the swimsuit issue in 1979, 1980, and 1981.
In addition to the traditional spike in Sports Illustrated circulation this year, her half million Instagram followers were treated to an even more extensive day at the beach with the model who turned the heads of designers, admirers, and women all over the world so many fashion seasons ago. Christie Brinkley was one of the persons who necessitated the term, “supermodel,” before it became a normal expression.
What’s her secret? If there were just one secret, more people would achieve this kind of agelessness. Surely, one powerful factor is Christie Brinkley’s willingness to work, to perform, to share her energy and inspiration with those around her. She proved these qualities again when she returned in April to the leading role of Roxie Hart in the Broadway musical Chicago, which was her third turn as Roxie, having performed the part in 2010 and 2012 as well.
The stamina and dedication required to tread the Broadway boards for eight shows a week is not well known, because it’s the job of the performer to make it look like the first time, each time. But think, too, of the confidence that takes.
The Confidence of Looking Good
Having confidence that you look good can open so many doors, in any chapter of life. One technique Miss Brinkley has shared for achieving her youthful appearance is Ultherapy.
Ultherapy applies ultrasound technology to first visualize and then gently heat the skin’s deep support structures to lift and tighten loose skin without disrupting the surface. This non-invasive process gradually strengthens the skin from within to create just the natural lift and toning you like.
The Confidence of a Proven Treatment
Ultherapy is FDA-approved as safe and effective for treatment of the brows, cheeks, chin, and neck. The FDA extended this approval to include the upper chest, putting décolletage back on the fashion map for many women. More than three quarters of a million Ultherapy treatments have been performed worldwide, with 95% patient satisfaction after a year.
The technology behind Ultherapy – ultrasound – has been used in medicine for more than 50 years to reach sub-dermal tissues and stimulate the body’s own healing processes. Refined and micro-focused by Ultherapy instruments, ultrasound energy is applied at pre-arranged depths below the surface of the skin, encouraging the tissues there to create more collagen. Growing new collagen restores the structural support layers of the skin that are lost as we age.
