'Iron Man 3' actress Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed that she has taken up a painful skincare routine to get rid of wrinkles.

According to fashion bible Harpers Bazaar, the 40-year-old has adopted a more thorough skincare routine to fight the inevitable signs of aging.

Gwyneth's Los Angeles dermatologist introduced her to an innovative new procedure, which uses focused radio‐frequency energy to strengthen collagen in the skin - to help prevent wrinkles without going under the knife.

She told the magazine: "I really used to be bad with products, but now I exfoliate every night and use a lot of organic oils on my face."

"And I have a great dermatologist in L.A. who gave me this amazing laser the last time I was there. It's called Thermage. It's not invasive. I went out to dinner right afterward and I didn't look crazy, but it's quite painful. It feels like someone's smacking your face with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it. But I would do it again, because I feel like it took five years off my face."
