“Dax Shepard is looking several years younger nowadays, he has probably had fat injections to the face and/or fillers to the under-eye area, which rejuvenates the face by replenishing volume loss experienced with natural aging,” Dr. Frank Agullo exclusively tells OK!. “He may have had an upper and lower blepharoplasty as well; his upper eyelids don’t look as droopy as usual.”
He continues, “I believe he has had a full face neurotoxic treatment in combination with skin resurfacing and radio frequency skin tightening, giving him an overall refreshed look. Proof that under experienced hands, plastic surgery can provide an overall improved version of oneself without looking overdone.”
Celebrity injector Heather Rohrer echoes similar sentiments. “Dax Shepard is sporting a healthy look after telling all about his relapse,” she says. “His face appears to look fuller, and his jawline is more defined with the help of fillers. His wrinkles around the eyes seem to be less apparent, possibly due to some Botox. Overall Dax’s skin seems to look more youthful, with the help of lasers such as Clear + Brilliant, which is popular among most Hollywood elite.”
The Parenthood alum has been candid about his struggles with addiction over the years. Last September, Shepard — who had been sober for 16 years — admitted he became addicted to opioids after an August motorcycle accident. Fortunately, he's now back on the wagon.
“I get so much self-esteem out of being someone who has encouraged other people to try sobriety,” he told Geist. “I had to look at what am I not dealing with? What am I ignoring? I actually feel better with this current four months than I had maybe the previous years.”
Despite the bumps in the road, Pam Agullo, MD, exclusively tells OK! that his drug addiction has “taken a toll on his overall appearance and health.” Now, “his facial features look rejuvenated and he’s sporting an overall younger version of himself.”
She adds, “He seems to have gained some weight, which makes him look younger. He’s probably gotten some facial fillers under the eyes, which replenish the loss of volume he had previously shown. His skin looks smoother too, mainly in the cheekbone area, and he’s probably gotten some fillers and neurotoxic treatment for this. He may also have had some sort of skin tightening treatment or at least gotten on a very good skin care regimen.”
Lastly, Dr. Ryan Neinstein, a plastic surgeon in New York City, praises Shepard’s “fresh” look. “Just like his passions for improv, cars and automobiles have intersected, it looks like Botox, fat grafting and skin care have also intersected, giving all 40-something dads something to aspire to.”
