Christie Brinkley Shares Her Timeless, Youthful Look

By Danielle Fontana , Editorial Assistant – NewBeauty.com | October 04, 2017

Known for her ability to quite literally defy aging before cameras and critics, supermodel Christie Brinkley has long claimed to do nothing more than “dabble” with dermatological treatments such as Botox Cosmetic and in-office, noninvasive procedures to keep her youthful complexion beaming and taut. Recently, however, the 63-year-old beauty opened up to People about two new procedures she’s been relying on: Xeomin—a botulinum toxin, which like Botox Cosmetic or Dysport, is used to relax frown lines between the eyebrows—and Ultherapy, an FDA-approved, noninvasive treatment that uses ultrasound technology to tighten skin.

“I wondered if people would think I’m phony and fake,” Brinkley said of her initial use of the treatments. “But it’s better to be honest and say, ‘Yeah, this is what I do.’” However, the icon says taking the first step and trying the treatments, especially Xeomin, was no easy feat. “I was so afraid to do it. But I still feel like myself. I could still move my eyebrows and I feel like I have all my same funny faces. It was like a noninvasive pick-me-up.”
After seeing the benefits of Xeomin, Brinkley tells People she considered getting Ultherapy about a year after, once she noticed more creases appear on her décolleté. But what actually got her to try the ultrasound treatment was watching Kathie Lee Gifford demonstrate it on the Today show. “Kathie Lee did it right there on TV, and I said, ‘This is it? It’s so easy.’ I thought it was so great that she was sharing that with everybody.”

As for why she officially decided to try a little something extra to maintain her youthful look, the supermodel says she’s almost 64, and that, at a certain point, you might need a little something extra. “When I look in the mirror, I want to feel like I look as good as I feel. And if you can have something done to feel more confident and better about yourself, then you feel like your face matches your spirit—and my spirit is enthusiastic and energetic.”

Since trying (and loving) Xeomin and Ultherapy, Brinkley has become a spokesperson for both.
