How Bling Empire Star Christine Chiu Preps Her Skin for the Met Gala

Christine Chiu, 40, is a Taiwanese-American businesswoman, philanthropist, and haute couture fashionista. But she is most well known for her role in Netflix’s reality TV show Bling Empire, which follows a group of massively wealthy Asian-Americans living in Los Angeles, California. The Bling Empire cast seem to be the real-life Crazy Rich Asians. While that is a close comparison, what many people don’t know is that Christine and her husband, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Gabriel Chiu, are highly successful business owners—and no, they don’t just sit around counting their money all day.
Christine received her honors degree in international business from Pepperdine University. From there, she went on to work in PR for beauty-related industries for over a decade. Using her brains and business-savviness, Christine Chiu co-founded Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery with Gabriel Chiu, MD. Other sources have reported that she is also the co-owner and founder of the Regenerative Medicine Aesthetic Institute as well as the SPA at BHPS.
The Chius have an extensive background in medical aesthetics, making them no stranger to the industry. In fact, Christine said in a 2016 interview with The Hollywood Reporter that she marries her love of haute couture with her work as managing partner at BHPS by forecasting plastic surgery trends based on runway trends. So for the 2023 Met Gala, BENEV Company, Inc. was elated to partner with Christine Chiu and get her “red carpet ready” with a Sylfirm X radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatment and post treatment, topical Exosomes.

Although Christine has an almost ageless complexion, she says, “I try to take care of my skin daily, but I am getting a little older. So I’m looking for a little more to help keep my skin tight and my complexion glowing.” The Sylfirm X dual wave RF microneedling treatment is one of the most comfortable non-invasive procedures on the market. NewBeauty magazine even coined Sylfirm X as 2022’s “dermatologist approved anti-aging treatment.”
What makes Sylfirm X stand out against other available RF microneedling treatments is its dual waveforms. Most devices are equipped to deliver only continuous waves (CW), which limits providers from customizing procedures based on patients’ dermal concerns or variable pain tolerances. Sylfirm X has interchangeable continuous waveforms and pulsed waveforms (PW). It is the world’s first ever dual wave RF microneedling device that is specifically designed to customize treatments and enhance comfortability while still delivering fantastic results.
Before receiving Sylfirm X treatment, Christine Chiu confessed that she actually hates needles; she hadn’t been able to sit through prior aesthetic treatments because of how painful they were. Bottom line: Christine was skeptical of Sylfirm X. What would make this treatment different from her past experiences?
For someone who hates needles and has a low pain tolerance, Christine was pleasantly surprised with her “Sylfirm X-perience…” Although she kept her AirPods in to ease her nerves—hey, we’ve all been there! “The Sylfirm X is safe on all skin types and much more comfortable than other RFMN devices out there. So this was my saving grace when it came to really getting that oomph my skin needed without the excessive pain or social downtime.” Keep in mind, Christine received treatment just ten days before the Met Gala, so minimal downtime was a must for her to have glowing skin in time for the big night.
Because Sylfirm X yields immediate results, the recovery process is rather short. But to really accelerate Christine’s results, Dr. Chiu topically applied BENEV Exosomes post Sylfirm X treatment. This “topical agent” helped “dramatically reduce any slight redness or downtime and boost [her] overall results.” BENEV Exosomes are potent formulas, jam-packed with growth factors, peptides, coenzymes, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that jumpstart the skin’s recovery process to reveal a brighter, more rejuvenated appearance.
This combo treatment is gaining popularity in the medical aesthetics world as more and more patients are requesting Sylfirm X and BENEV Exosomes all in one. Aesthetic providers acclaim Sylfirm X for its versatility during treatment, and aesthetic patients praise it for its comfortability. Meanwhile, patients love BENEV Exosomes for revitalizing their skin and enhancing downtime.
Thanks to Sylfirm X and post procedure exosomes, Christine Chiu and her skin were positively radiant at the Met Gala. “Sylfirm X has now become my go-to “red carpet ready” treatment that I can do a few weeks before an event where I know my skin will look flawless and youthful for the cameras.” To learn more about Sylfirm X and BENEV Exosomes, visit
