From Botox to Lash Extensions: How to Rejuvenate Your Look
In today’s world of cosmetic enhancements people are looking for more—and less. The number of cosmetic procedures is still rising, but people are opting for less invasive procedures that can give them the buff and shine they’re looking for, without the swelling, aching recovery, and the wax-doll result.
America’s appetite appears to be waning for more invasive surgical enhancements, such as facelifts, which dropped by four percent. “People don’t want that windswept face look,” says David H. Song, MD, MBA, FACS, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. “They’re looking for more subtle, natural changes.” And it’s not just middle aged patients coming in for treatments. Song says he’s seen an uptick in younger patients—even those in their 20’s opting for Botox and fillers in hopes of fending off age-related changes, rather than waiting and attempting to throw the switch into reverse.
However, while the field has expanded to younger patients, older patients aren’t losing interest; Americans today have a greater focus on health and well being, said Song. Today’s 65-year old has little interest in creaking their way into retirement, but are looking to stay and appear vital.
