Kim Kardashian attends the Los Angeles premiere of Hulu's new show "The Kardashians" at Goya Studios on April 07, 2022 in Los Angeles, California.
Kim Kardashian told fans about the “painful” procedure involving a laser to help tighten her stomach, calling it a “game changer.” The SKIMS founder revealed on her Instagram Stories yesterday (August 3) a photo of her bare, reddened abdomen and a machine.
Kardashian wrote over the pic, “This is a game changer!!! I did Morpheus laser to tighten my stomach @DrGHavami’s spa @GPSAesthetics. I think this is my fave laser but it’s painful lol but worth it!”
Per E! News, the machine Kim attributes to her tight abs is micro-needling laser Morpheus 8, which is non-surgical.
This isn’t the first time Kim has opened up about undergoing laser treatments. Last month, the KKW Beauty founder said she does laser treatments after her four kids are in bed. She admitted, “I really, genuinely care about looking good. I probably care more than 90 percent of the people on this planet. It’s not easy when you’re a mom and you’re exhausted at the end of the day or you’re in school, and I’m all of the above. I do my beauty treatments usually late at night.”
After claiming that her beauty standard was “attainable,” Kardashian received a big wave of criticism on social media.
However, the Kardashians star also noted that she’s not a mission to fix every single thing, adding, “I’m at peace with not being perfect and I wasn’t like that before. [Getting older] doesn’t mean that I won’t strive for perfection. But you get to a point where you’re like, ‘Okay, my health is more important than anything else.'”
Kim Kardashian Criticized Over Her 'Attainable' Beauty Standards
The Kardashians are known for pumping their bodies full of filler and going under the knife to achieve their coveted bodies. In a new interview, Kim Kardashian was asked if she feels “responsible, even guilty, for setting an unrealistic, unattainable beauty standard.”
“If I’m doing it, it’s attainable,” Kim told Allure magazine in response. “There are so many different beauty standards — whether it’s Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Marilyn Monroe. When I was a teenager, [the look] was just blonde waifs. My mentality was never like, you see them on TV or in magazines and pick who you want to be. It was always: Be yourself, find beauty in everything.”
In the same interview, Kim maintained that the only cosmetic procedure that she’s done to her face was “a little bit of Botox,” but has “chilled.” She denied “ever” having any filler in her face or even eyelash extensions. “I’ve never had eyelash extensions. I’ve never done anything. I have a drop of mascara on today. I’ve never filled my cheeks. I’ve never filled my lips,” she stated, adding that her eyebrows are also real.
Although Kim says she is pretty much natural in the face, she did admit, “I really, genuinely care about looking good. I probably care more than 90 percent of the people on this planet. It’s not easy when you’re a mom and you’re exhausted at the end of the day or you’re in school, and I’m all of the above. I do my beauty treatments usually late at night. After everyone’s in bed, I’m doing laser treatments.”
The interview has since sparked backlash, with people taking to social media to call out Kim’s “out of touch” and “delusional” claim that her beauty standards are attainable.
