Paulina Porizkova has given her fans a behind-the-scenes look at the intensive skin treatments she undergoes to look youthful while avoiding Botox and plastic surgery.
The 55-year-old model did it Instagram on Wednesday to share a photo collage of himself with beautician and laser specialist Raechel Lowe, working at the plastic surgeon office. Yael Halaas in New York City.
“In celebration of reaching 200,000 of you! I place today’s choice [sic]she wrote to her followers, explaining that it was her last treatment with her “beloved” Raechel, who is returning to Florida.

Keep it real: The model joked that she looked like a ‘monster’ with her blotchy red face
“She really nailed it to me,” she noted from the seemingly painful session that left her with red spots around her eyes and face.
“Now I look like a monster – seriously – but hopefully in a few days my miracle worker would know a bit about the grief marks on my face,” she wrote at the end of her post. Thank you all at Dr.’s office. Halaas! We’ll see – and I’ll let you know for sure! ‘
Paulina’s mention of “grief marks” on her face was no doubt a reference to the death of her estranged husband, The Cars frontman Ric Ocasek, who passed away on September 15.
During the session, the mother of two underwent Ultherapy on her face and a Plasma Pen treatment around her eyes, both non-evasive procedures.
Ultherapy firms the skin using high-intensity ultrasound waves.

She is a fan! The beauty of Sports Illustrated called Ultherapy her ‘go-to magic’ laser treatment when she got it done last year
Treating large areas like the face and neck can cost between $ 4,000 and $ 5,500 in New York City, according to Today. But the results would subtract years from the skin’s appearance.
Meanwhile, the Plasma Pen is effective in reducing wrinkles, while also lifting and tightening the skin.
The device “transfers nitrogen plasma energy to deliver soft surgical plasma fibroblasts deep into the skin,” Dr. Halaas’ website.
Prices begins for $ 400 and varies based on treatment area and location.
This is not the first time Paulina has shared photos of her skin treatments. Last year she shared photos and videos from one of her Ultherapy sessions at the office.

Beauty Treatment: Last week she visited Joshua Barbieri Hair Salon to color her hair, which had become a mix of brown, gray and blonde during the pandemic
Focused: Paulina, who shows off her new hair color in the photo, said she couldn’t let herself go completely gray because she needs to find work as a model
The beauty of Sports Illustrated described it as her ‘go-to magic’ laser treatment because of how the results have improved areas like her neck.
In addition to sharing multiple videos in which she completed the procedure, she also explained that the results will continue to improve along her neck for three months.
But with the incredible procedure comes extreme pain, Paulina said, as she described it as worse than childbirth.
“Why wouldn’t everyone in the world do it?” she wrote about the treatment. “Well, first of all it hurts. Like a lot. I had a natural birth twice without drugs, but when I do Ultherapy I wish there were a few. ‘
She described the procedure, which causes a burning and prickly sensation along the target area, as if someone were to “take a lighter and slowly pull it over your skin.”
“Only, instead of burning scars, you get more collagen on your skin and look great right afterwards,” she noted.
Then and Now: Paulina’s hair was dyed in a flattering shade of dark brown with highlights
Reminder: the mother of two is the morning of the death of her estranged husband Ric Ocasek, who died on September 15 at the age of 75
Paulina, who was sunbathing topless just a few days before her last cosmetic treatments, is increasingly traveling to New York City after having quarantined her home in the state for nearly five months.
Last week she visited Joshua Barbieri Hair Salon to color her hair, which had become a mix of brown, gray and blonde during the pandemic.
She posted split photos of herself in the salon, with both facials.
“Well spent yesterday – finally getting my uncontrollable color check,” she captioned the images. “Josh and I discussed my options, not as much as you might think – since my hair is baked on the bottom and virgin on top.
“I’m very happy with the result, a very asymmetrical dark blonde – I’ll post a photo later to show you what it looks like when dried and slightly cropped.”
Paulina kept her promise and later shared a photo of herself running her fingers through her freshly painted hair.
In the caption, she explained why she didn’t let her hair turn gray, as some of her fans had suggested.
“Many of you indicated that you wish I had fully taken up natural. That would have been nice – if I had had time to let my hair grow out a bit more (probably another year for a short bob), but guys, I have to work! she emphasized.
“And no model customers will be happy with that tricolor thing I had. @joshuabarbierihair did a great job of putting all these colors together and leaving my little gray-white stripe in it. ‘
