Beauty Treatments Instagram Models Won’t Tell You About

While scrolling through your Instagram feed, you are bombarded with Instagram influencers who look like goddesses. With perfect, symmetrical, and eye-pleasing features, Instagram models make it look like they were born with it. Here’s the truth – almost all Instagram models undergo beauty treatments to enhance or change their appearance. And let’s not even get into the subject of photoshopping, which done well, can look completely natural. So if you’re wondering why your beauty treatments are not helping you achieve a model-like look at home, learning these 9 Instagram model secrets can level the playing field.

Here are the top 9 beauty treatments that Instagram models won’t tell you about:

1. Lip Fillers

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have luscious, juicy, full lips? Kylie Jenner’s full lips are proof of how lips can change the way your face looks. Following the trend, there’s hardly any Instagram model out there who doesn’t have a perfect pout.

From filling almost non-existent lips to fixing asymmetrical ones, lip injections are undoubtedly the most popular beauty treatment that Instagram models do. Dermal fillers are widely used for filling lips and are very gentle to the skin. The best part is that the final results look very natural and smooth, and last up to 12 months.

Let’s face it. Almost none of us are born with lips like the ones on the right. But any of us can have them with safe, proven lip fillers that look and feel completely natural.

2. Non-Surgical Facelift

Do you ever wonder how models in their late 30’s manage to look youthful and half their age? No, it’s not surgery – at least not most of the time. You don’t need to go under the knife for the sake of everlasting beauty. Fillers are widely used for sculpting and shaping various parts of your face where the signs of aging begin to show. As we age, our skin begins to lose its natural elasticity and bounciness. Dermal fillers can be used to add volume to the cheeks and chin, hollow temples, and smoothen your jawline. Not only aging models, but most young Instagram models are also obsessed with the “snatched” face look that makes you look a lot more attractive. Along with dermal fillers, non-surgical facelift treatments include Botox, Kybella injections, and treatments such as microneedling which trigger your own body to rejuvenate itself.

3. Non-surgical Nose Job

The increasing popularity of selfies has also increased the number of people who perform rhinoplasty. Selfies make us self-conscious about our facial features, mostly our nose and lips. Thanks to Instagram we know that Instagram models were all born with perfect noses – not!  In reality, most celebrities and models do nose jobs along and/or non-surgical nose contouring.

If you hate the idea of going under a knife, then consider a non-surgical nose job. Even though the painless procedure does not offer reductions or major changes, it’s a good choice for making little tweaks. With the aid of injectable fillers, smoothing out nose bridges or creating symmetry is easier than ever. Recovery time is very short, and treatments are far more affordable (and much safer) than surgery.

4. Laser Facial Treatment

You have probably seen the hype about “glass-skin” on Instagram. You can’t help but admire how clear or beautiful their skin looks without makeup. Sadly, it’s not a skincare product that works wonders for them. Models go for laser facial treatments to conceal imperfections like sunspots, acne scars, large pores, dull-looking skin, etc.

Laser treatments are immensely popular worldwide and that’s for a good reason! They work wonders and are completely non-invasive. Our AeroLase device treats your skin problems with the help of targeted light beams that brighten your complexion by working underneath your skin to restore elastin and collagen.

5. Botox

From celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Aniston to runway models, almost everyone has done Botox treatments. It’s an open secret. Men and women both begin to experience the signs of aging in their 30s. The forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet form around the eyes, and smile lines deepen.

Since aging is a natural process, celebrities and models have always sought the best procedures that can minimize these signs and make them look younger. Over the years, Botox has proved to be a reliable tool in fighting signs of aging. So it’s no wonder that almost all models and celebrities receive regular Botox treatment.

6. Fox Eyes – Secret Beauty Treatment

The Instagram trend of “Fox Eyes” or “Cat Eyes” is seen almost everywhere. Flawless looking models post pictures in sultry looks with eyes that resemble the ‘fox eye shape’. It looks stunning, no doubt. They want you to think that makeup alone can create the breathtaking illusion of this trend, but there are some hidden beauty treatments they’re not telling you about.

To give the face a “pulled back” or lifted brow look, Botox treatments are usually carried out. Fillers are often used to lift and add volume below the eyes or even close to the hairline. Models achieve the fox eyes look with a combination of Botox, fillers, and Latisse.

7. Laser Hair Removal

If you have seen pictures of models on the beach wearing neon bikinis, you might have wondered how they have such smooth and hairless bodies. You are not alone. Most women have unwanted hair in various parts of their bodies. Of course, our favorite Instagram models have also gone through procedures that have helped them get rid of those unwanted hairs forever.

Laser hair removal is one of the most common beauty treatments for women and men. Instead of shaving, waxing, or pulling out hair every other day, this painless and permanent treatment is a much better option. Not just for the face, models often remove unwanted hair from underarms, the bikini line, legs, back – anywhere on the body where unwanted hair appears.

8. Microblading

Brows are an essential feature for our face. From thin brows to bushy brows, Instagram models always have something interesting to offer. There are also makeup looks that refer specifically to “Instagram Brows“. This obsession with brows has led us to believe that only models can have shaped and flawless brows, but the truth is brows are one of the easiest things to sculpt and improve.

Most of us are not blessed with symmetrical, dark, and full brows. Models are no different. While a few were born with beautiful brows, many of them use microblading and threading to achieve their flawless look. Microblading involves tattooing individual hairs on the brows that will last for several years. As Microblading mimics the pattern of your natural brows, someone can be inches from your face and still not be able to tell they’re not completely natural.

Ok, even we admit that a body like this just isn’t realistic for most of us, but any of us can get rid of those stubborn pockets of fat and tighten our skin for a better look. There’s no need to fear bikini season.

9. Mesotherapy

Instagram models have the perfect summer body all year round. Women especially are subjected to constant pressure to have a flawless and toned body. While models may be gifted with great genes, or work out obsessively, very few can stop there. If they can have beautiful, spotless bodies, so can you. It’s no secret that Instagram models shape their bodies with contouring treatments and spot fat reduction.

While these treatments can’t work miracles, they can be the answer when exercise and a healthy diet have taken you as far as your genes will allow. With the aid of vitamins, plant extracts, hormones, and enzymes, Mesotherapy removes excess fat and tightens the body to give it a natural contour. Mesotherapy is effective for wrinkles, cellulite, fat, pigmentation, scars, and loose skin.


From plastic surgeries to dermal fillers, the beauty treatment industry has drastically improved over the decades. Women of all centuries, with or without Instagram, have desired to have perfect features.

As with anything, too many beauty treatments might make you look ‘fake’ and artificial. So even if you consider trying out the treatments that models do, keep it natural and don’t overdo it. However, it’s your body and you have the right to present yourself to the world the way you want. If it makes you feel better about yourself, do it.

Do keep in mind, though, that bowing to societal pressure and letting others determine how you should look is a recipe for unhappiness. You are perfect just the way you are, so embrace what you have or enhance what you want to. But make it your choice, and something you do for you.
