Melanie Janine Brown – ‘Mel B’

Like growing numbers of celebs, Mel B also known as ‘Scary Spice’ has moved away from Botox in her battle against wrinkles. She confessed that her wrinkle free skin is all down to ‘collagen wave therapy’, that is, a treatment that involves using radio-frequency (RF) currents to heat and encourage the skin to produce more collagen.  Brown explained to the Daily Mail; ‘I’ve been having it for a few months and my skin has never looked better […] I don’t want to have Botox or surgery because I want to have expression in my face. But I want to look after myself.” Unlike Botox, RF treatments work with the body to produce more collagen, and produce a long lasting and naturally youthful result, as opposed to injecting the skin with Botox ( Botulinum toxin) and causing the muscles to essentially ‘freeze’ in place, leading to that constantly surprised look that is all too well recognizable.
