In 2016, more than 64 percent of American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery members report having more new patients under the age of 30.
“The constant trending of hashtags and social media has accelerated the visibility of, and interest in cosmetic surgery and medispa type procedures.”
According to multiple sources, many well-known facial plastic surgeons from Los Angeles to New York City, say Botox or Dysport and dermal fillers are the most popular procedures for younger clients.
We agree! Our medical director, alongside our top Physician Assistants, agree that injectables are the best tools for younger clients who want enhancement without the risks of plastic surgery. “Clients come in for a consultation, take out their phones, and pull up examples of desired features.” They want to put their best face forward for their ‘selfies’, and most often injectables are their answer, as well as their entrance into cosmetic aesthetics.
Millennials in our practice are seeking wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers. By using dermal fillers primarily to augment facial features and fill in acne scars, they also use the relaxers to prevent future effects of aging, and to maintain their vitality. But, by using BOTH together, they’re able to extend the longevity of their youthful appearance.
According to evidence reported in the journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, there is a simple technique for prolonging the effects of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers. Researchers show that Botox and Dysport (wrinkle relaxers) can extend the life of HA fillers by reducing the muscle activity in the treated area. This study showed that HA filler application in combination with Botox significantly decreases the degradation process and increases the remaining volume at the end of the paralyzed period.”
