After non-stop talk of Tulisa Contostavlos changing face, the singer admits to having regular non-surgical treatments to help breakdown her fillers

When Tulisa Contostavlos stepped up to speak to the press outside court in July everyone was astonished by how much the singer’s face had changed. She had a trout-pout and her face looked frozen and puffy – where had the pretty girl from N-Dubz gone?

Since then, the 26-year-old star has openly admitted to having fillers.

‘Yes, I’ve had my lips done, and I’m happy with my lips,’ she told Stella magazine. ‘And I also had a tiny bit of filler in my cheeks. Pictures of me where my face was swelling. I had water retention – where you have filler your face draws up a load of water. So my face began to swell like a balloon.’

But now Tulisa has admitted she’s also having non-surgical treatment to help break her fillers down after losing a stone before the trial and her appearance drastically changing. So was she as upset with her new look as we were?

‘I don’t get permanent ones,’ she says of her fillers. ‘It’s like every six months you get a top-up, but mine have practically gone […] Now I’m having collagen waves to try and break it [the filler] down.

‘It’s very natural, like a facial, a heat pad that goes over your skin and makes you produce natural collagen cells,’ she adds.

According to Harley Street surgeons, collagen wave treatments work by combining radio frequency and ultrasound. It delivers energy to deeper layers of the skin and soft tissues to tighten skin and lift the skin, and encourage the production of new collagen.

Results can last up to two years and most people have from three to 10 treatments done.

What’s worrying though is that this treatment is really aimed at women in the 40s and 50s whose skin is older and lost its elasticity. T is just 26!

So should Tulisa really be doing more to her face?

Let us know what you think.
