If you've got a spare €4,000, then we've got the facial for you.
The Thermage laser facial is preferred by A-listers including Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow, Linda Evangelista and Demi Moore - despite the price tag and painful description.
Lifestyle 'guru' Gwyneth described it as 'having your face smacked with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it'.
The treatment, which is available at River Medical in Ireland, is said to boost natural collagen levels in your face using a 'smooth wand' which heats under layers of the skin.
"Kim has been having regular Thermage facials," an insider told Grazia. "If there's a new beauty trend, she wants to be one of the first to try it and while it's painful, she's seen great results. Kanye doesn't like her having invasive treatments so this is ideal.
"Kim isn't afraid of going to great lengths to attain her perfect look."
