Actress Kate Walsh says Botox and scalpels aren’t for her. But like Gwyneth Paltrow, she says she’s fine with another type of cosmetic medicine: Laser treatments.

She’s in Shape

TV‘s Kate Walsh bares all. How she stays this hot at 44,” shouts the red-lettered cover line on the March issue of Shape.

Inside the magazine, the “Private Practice” actress is quoted as saying, “We live in a strange time when getting plastic surgery is as common as dyeing your hair. But in my profession, I need a malleable face. Everyone has her line in the sand. I draw mine at facials and laser treatments.”

She adds, “If others want to go a step further, it’s their call.”

That sounds a lot like what Gwyneth Paltrow said in Harper’s Bazaar recently. Paltrow said she’ll pass on the Botox in favor of doing  “little things, like lasers.”

Neither Walsh nor Paltrow have said what type of laser treatments they get. But going the laser route can be pretty rigorous — and it can get expensive for those who aren’t earning Hollywood salaries.

When people talk about lasers,  it can mean “a 15-minute job or .. a 2-hour job with 2 weeks of down time, with peeling, redness and crusting,” says Dr. Tony Nakhla, medical director of OC Skin Institute and author of the book, “The Skin Commandments”.

There are different lasers for all kinds of skin problems, from zapping freckles, red splotches or broken blood vessels to the more involved work of resurfacing the skin to get rid of wrinkles, says Nakhla, who counts entertainment industry types among his clients.

The 15-minute job runs about $350.

The 2-hour job? That’ll cost you $3,000. Twice a year.

By the way, Nakhla says Botox gets a bad rap on the face-freezing front. It can get rid of wrinkles without having that effect. “That (patients’ expectations that their faces will freeze) is a misconception,” he says.

But that’s another post.

So how do you think Walsh looks? Want to see how she’s changed through the years?
