Brad Pitt has playing second fiddle to his global wife lately, seemingly working on his philanthropy projects. But his brief time away from Angelina Jolie and their international brood may have been spent recovering from filler injections
46-year old Brad Pitt may be one of Hollywood’s hunkiest actors of all time, but he also has notoriously bad skin, thanks to acne in his teens. The golden family has previously had some plastic surgery to help restore him to his former glory (See Make Me Heal’s story on Brad Pitt’s plastic surgery), and has recently been rumored to have undergone Radiesse, a dermal filler.
The National Enquirer reports:
“The 46-year-old actor has been getting injections of the wrinkle filler Radiesse to make his face look younger and smoother, the Enquirer has learned. And it appears to be having the desired effect. Not only does Brad’s face look brighter and more radiant, Angelina has given her seal of approval.”
“Brad hasn’t looked this good in years – and Angelina is definitely pleased about his makeover…”
For months, the actor hid behind a scraggly beard “because he was so self-conscious about how he was aging.”
Brad was forced to shave when he began his new role in the baseball film “Moneyball.” Before production began, he paid a visit to the office of Dr. Mark Rubin, his longtime Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon…
“Brad felt he needed to take 10 years off his face…”
Added the source: “Now, with his smooth skin, he says his kids always want to touch his face – and so does Angelina!”
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn writes, “I haven’t seen photos of him, but a little Radiesse can definitely take off some years. I’d probably recommend a little Sculptra to fill in some of the gaunt areas of his face.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Brad Pitt may have tried fillers such as Radiesse to fill in past acne scars. Dermal fillers can be used to fill in any type of depression including acne scars. The other alternatives to reducing the appearance of acne scars are with chemical peels and laser resurfacing. Depending on the individuals severity of scarring and their skin color will determine which is best for them. The easiest and quickest improvement is with dermal fillers; however, it is temporary and only lasts a few months.”
Brad definitely looks better without the beard and time will tell if the rumors of Radiesse are true.
