Botox victim: What happened to Carla Bruni-Sarkozy?

Who hasn’t heard of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, wife of former President of the French Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy? The brunette beauty became famous in the 1990’s when she dropped out of her art and architecture study and started a modeling career. At that time, she was considered as one of the world’s best-paid models with a yearly income of up to 7.5 million dollars. Among others, Bruni posed for L’Oréal, Christian Dior, Valentino, John Galliano, and Yves Saint Laurent.

In 2000, Madame Sarkozy gave up her modeling career and surprised her fans by becoming a pop musician. She first became well-known when she composed a song for Julien Clers – the album reached number one on the French charts. Two years later, she had another sensational hit: Quelqu’un m’a dit, which she wrote the music and words for, and sang herself. The song sold more than a million copies within the shortest possible time, and once again, Carla was a star. Hence, her former partner Raphaёl Enthoven as well as the famous German jazz trumpeter Till Brönner seized the opportunity to work with the dark-haired beauty.

Shortly before Christmas 2007, Carla Bruni’s love life made headlines: To begin with, Nicolas Sarkozy accompanied the singer on a visit to the Disneyland amusement park, whereas several paparazzi took photographs of the new dream couple. They then flew to Luxor on holiday; shortly afterwards, in February 2008, they married in the Élysée Palace.

While her husband Nicolas was in the middle of his Presidential campaign, the former model was suffering from a great deal of stress.  Nude photographs which suddenly showed up probably made it worse. This stress could be seen straight away in her face, which looked more and more haggard. In order to cover up the wrinkles that had appeared, she started to use Botox. In January of this year the British Daily Mail wrote: “Three years ago, the former model’s facial expression was a lot more flexible.” In addition to the fact, that not only her facial expressions seemed to be frozen, Botox has a degenerative effect on the cutaneous glands, making the skin look older and drier.

Do people really have to accept the disadvantages of a Botox therapy?

From the age of around 30 onwards, the endocrine glands become less efficient; the resulting lack of hormones (lack of growth hormone, cortisol, DHEA, etc.) becomes noticeable in certain signs of aging in the face. These include, for instance, dryness, haggardness, wrinkles, and sagging cheeks. It therefore seems natural to supply the body with the missing hormones by means of Hormonal Regeneration® (Biodentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, BHRT) in order to strengthen tissues, reduce wrinkles, and give the skin back its fresh and youthful appearance.

Perfect Skin would also help to reduce small wrinkles and smooth out creases. The cosmetic product Perfect Skin is a combination of amino acids and peptides which, when used regularly, strengthens the skin, connective tissue, and joints from the inside out.

Therapeutic treatment with the growth factors of skin cells (Epidermal Growth Factors), in which growth factors are introduced into the skin using very short microneedles, stimulates skin rejuvenation and tightening on the cellular level.

Every Hormonal Regeneration® is tailored to the patient’s individual requirements and wishes. The first signs of improvement become noticeable a short time after beginning the therapy: the skin looks fresher and firmer again.

Carla Bruni would not only regain her fresh, youthful appearance with these therapies, but she also would be able to improve her resistance to stress, as bioidentical hormones increase vitality and resilience. That would help her body to recover from the strains during pregnancy and the birth of her little daughter Giulia.

Anyway, we wish Carla and her little girl all the best!
