Dermal filler injections have become so commonplace that the procedure is on the top of the list of elective aesthetic treatments patients are having done to reverse the effects of aging. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, injectable fillers were the fastest growing minimally invasive procedure in 2015. With injectable treatments growing by the day, it’s not surprising to hear about botched procedures, scary side effects or rare complications. But hearing about it and experiencing it firsthand are ...

Sure, Botox can help get rid of your frown lines. Science is tantalizingly close, at least according to Jason S. Reichenberg, MD, director of dermatology at the University of Texas-Austin and co-author of a study about the correlation between Botox and depression that was just published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology. “One of the theories about Botox treating depression is that it doesn’t make you smile, but it stops you from frowning,” Reichenberg tells Yahoo Beauty.
Bad Botox can happen to good people — even famous people who have access to some of the best cosmetic dermatologists out there. It happened recently to Kelly Ripa, by her own admission on Wednesday during an episode of “Live With Kelly.” In her typically lighthearted way, Ripa recounted the experience to her guest host, Fox News political commentator Megyn Kelly.
Botox is big. According to ASAPS, botulinum toxin (that includes Botox Cosmetic, Dysport and Xeomin) has been the number-one nonsurgical procedure since 2000, and surpassed the 4-million mark for number of procedures performed last year. That’s a lot of Botox being done, but, chances are, whether you’re a beginner, seasoned pro or just a spectator, you probably have some pressing questions about it. So we posed it to the pros: Which ones are you asked the most? Is it really ...
There are three things guys generally don’t talk about with each other: the last time they cried, favorite episodes of Girls, and whether they’ve had cosmetic procedures. What did you do?’“ says Dr. Seth Matarasso, a board certified surgeon and Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the University of California School Of Medicine in San Francisco. "Men are a little gun shy in querying about what’s available.” But, the reality is that the of number cosmetic procedures performed on men has increased 273 percent since 1997, according to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. But men still account for only about one in ten cosmetic procedure patients. With that dearth of personal experience, not to mention the reluctance with which guys generally talk about it, men tend to find themselves at an information deficit about cosmetic procedures.
In yet another what-can’t-Botox-do indication, Allergan announced that the FDA has approved the neuromodulator for one more use: The treatment of lower limb spasticity in adult patients to decrease the severity of increased muscle stiffness in ankle and toe muscles.
While women in their 20s are now getting what’s called preventative Botox, I’m countering aging with a method I like to call “preventative moisture.”
“Do you see those two women sitting in the corner?” my Korean translator, a young woman in her 20s, asked me. The woman on the right more than her friend on the left.” We stared at two tall, slim, and elegantly dressed women with translucently pale skin who were quietly sipping their own lattes. “These are not natural Korean characteristics,” my translator added.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 15.6 million people had a cosmetic procedure in U.S. in 2014, a 104% increase from 2000 and 3% increase from the prior year. Topping the most-requested plastic surgery as a gift list: facial cosmetic treatments, like Botox, Fraxel, and Restylane, as well as breast augmentations. Some may view giving plastic surgery as a gift offensive, but in most cases, it’s the receiver who’s already made up her mind on which procedure she is going to get, and asks her husband or boyfriend to cover the cost.
Cosmetic surgery among men is becoming an unspoken norm. From “Brotox” and injectable fillers to Board Short Tucks and CoolSculpting, men are stepping up their game when it comes to maintaining their appearance. But does the uptick in aesthetic procedures symbolize a new era of access and empowerment when it comes to men, or will it open the floodgates to the same body image concerns that women have been battling forever? According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 400,000 men had Botox injections in 2014 (up 337 percent from 2000) and over 90,000 received fillers (which marks an 86 percent increase since 2000). Similarly, RealSelf.com (an online community that connects people considering aesthetic treatments to others undergoing the same procedures, and to board certified doctors) reports a 59 percent jump in male visitors over the last year. Dermatologists, who often also specialize in hair restoration/transplants as well as skin treatments, saw that number rise 87 percent.
Facialist Georgia Louise takes a “more is more” approach to skin care. “If you want to have beautiful skin, you’ve got to work at it,” Louise says. “If a client comes here and expects a 1-2-3-step program, I send them home, because that’s not my thing.” For Louise, who treats a gorgeous list of clients including Jennifer Aniston, Behati Prinsloo, Emma Stone, and Linda Evangelista, more is more when it comes to beauty.
