Sarah Ferguson is turning 60 soon, and the Duchess of York and British writer has boldly stated her go-to cosmetic procedures.
Ferguson, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew, is affectionately known as Fergie. She revealed in an interview with the Daily Mail that she is a big fan of non-invasive laser facelifts.
“I’ve had a lot of help to look like this at 60,” she said, ” “I’ve started the laser treatment but it’s not finished yet. The collagen needs to rebuild. I hope it will all be done by my birthday.”
The procedure is called 6-Dimension Platinum Laser. It stimulates collagen to act as a natural facelift.
“I don’t like the frozen look, I’m so animated and I like to be myself. I don’t like the thought of needles and am very glad if I look well and happy — I’m really happy to be open about what I’ve had done,” she told the Daily Mail.
Fergie also had this procedure done last year before daughter Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding.
Fergie has had non-invasive treatments more recently, though she has tried Botox in the past. Some of these treatments help fix years of sun damage. One is called mesotherapy, which is an injection of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that help with collagen production.
“I need to repair the damage that was done on the beach when I was a child,” she said.
The duchess has also had a facial thread lift, which requires an insertion of medically advanced threads under the skin to hold everything up.
“Before I had it done I thought, Oh, this is going to be painful, but it wasn’t bad. My skin responded well. I think if you look at photos of me after I had it done, I look much better.”
She hasn’t just cosmetically enhanced her face. Fergie has travelled to the Bahamas to have work done on her feet. It is called regenerative stem cell therapy, which she says will help combat the destruction of her toes from years of riding.
Fergie pointed to her big toe, “They shaved the bone here and implanted stem cells, 20 million of them taken from my midriff, into my feet to make new cartilage. It takes about six months to heal but now I can walk in heels!”
