Angelina Jolie's £15k facials

2014-07-13 15:30

Los Angeles - Angelina Jolie spends £15 000 a year on "raindrop" facials.

The Maleficent actress visits Dr  David Colbert every month for a "triad facial" laser treatment to help maintain her glowing complexion and youthful appearance.

The doctor - whose clients also include Naomi Watts and Jennifer Lawrence - said: ''People call it a facial, but it is actually a non-invasive laser treatment.

''First we prep skin with microdermabrasion so the laser penetrates better. Then we use a laser, which feels like warm raindrops on the skin. After that, we do a lavender acid exfoliation, then apply gentle wave lights.

''The treatment takes about 35 minutes for the face or an hour for the whole body - we usually treat the arms and legs, the bits that will be on show.

''Most of our stars will have it before a big event - the Emmys or Oscars. People who are regularly in the media will come in monthly or every other month.''

Colbert first worked with Angelina, 39, on 2009 movie Salt, where he helped created a special face cream for her.

He told Britain's Grazia magazine: ''I've worked with her on several movies as a consultant where there has been prosthetic make-up. For Salt we developed a skin cream that was really gentle, with shea nut butter.

''It's called Heal and Soothe, sells at £120, and helps keep skin looking calm and dewy.''
