The Nonsurgical Procedure Plus-Size Models Are Frequently Requesting

Original Article By Brittany Fallon

Original Article By Brittany Fallon. Whether you're plus-size or not, certain physical characteristics are considered more "classically beautiful" than others, especially by plastic surgeons, whose job it is to manipulate a person's look based on their desires. In an interview with Revelist, plastic surgeon Dr. Joshua Zuckerman said, "Classical beauty is, in part, characterized by a delicate jawline, slight heart shape to the face and a petite chin."

Because of this, he says more and more plus-size models (as well as other women) are seeking treatments to slim their jawline area. "It's true that many women, 'plus-size' models and otherwise, currently want to maintain a bit of a fuller figure, while at the same retaining a face that is classically beautiful," Dr. Zuckerman said.  ..

Original Article By Brittany Fallon

We're always searching for the "fountain of youth," whether it's in lotions, potions or in-office treatments that claim to turn back the hands of time. Researchers are hard at work trying to figure out the secret to slowing skin aging, and with each report that gets published, they get closer and closer.

One of the latest reports to spark some buzz in the anti-aging arena comes from researchers at the University of Maryland and was published in Scientific Reports this week. Their findings might surprise you: a chemical called methylene blue—it's actually an antioxidant, which makes it sound a lot less scary—that's been used in the medical field for years is now being linked to reducing signs of skin aging like lines and wrinkles by thickening the skin.  ..

Can Lasers and Fillers Save You Thousands of Dollars?

Original Article By Lisa Fogarty

When it comes to anti-aging skincare, many women have medicine cabinets bursting with moisturizers, serums, and no fewer than three types of cleansers (Micellar, oil, and charcoal, in case you're going shopping). But mention the words "laser procedure" or "non-invasive plastic surgery," and there's a chance the response will come in the form of a whispered confession: there's no way I could afford those kind of treatments.

Not long ago, dermatological skin tweaks existed almost exclusively for well-heeled women who needn't ask about prices. But times — and the clientele of plastic surgeons and dermatologists — have changed. Younger women, some on the earlier side of their 20s, are getting hip to the fact that lasers, fillers, and Botox, while they may set you back a pretty penny upfront, can actually be more cost-effective in the long run — especially if you confront a minor skin problem before he becomes a major one. ..

Original Article By Elise Minton

Original Article By Elise Minton. You may love the way your doctor wields his or her needle to inject your favorite fillers and injectables, giving you the look you’ve always wanted. But for the most part, doctors like to use these products off-label, meaning for a purpose (albeit safe) other than what they are FDA-approved for. We asked six expert injectors what their favorite under-the-radar uses are for injectables and fillers—their answers may surprise you.

To diminish the look of cellulite and dimples
New York dermatologist Gervaise Gerstner, MD, likes to use filler to treat dimples and cellulites on the thighs. “There are a plethora of perfectly sculpted ladies who are 99.99 percent perfect but they obsess over very small dimples or fat pockets. When we use filler to fill in the divots or dimples, it also helps to lift the skin so the appearance of some of that superficial crepiness and cellulite is diminished.”  ..

The Makers of Botox May Have Just Solved Your Acne Problems

Original Article By Tatiana Bido. Good news coming from the late-stage trials of an acne medication from drug giant Allergan and Paratek Pharmaceuticals. The companies are reporting that two Phase 3 trails of the drug sarecycline, an oral tetracycline-derived antibiotic with anti-inflammatory properties, has been successful in the treatment of moderate to severe acne.

David Nicholson, chief global research and development officer for Allergan says, “The positive efficacy results observed in the pivotal phase 3 clinical trials indicate that sarecycline can be an effective treatment option for patients with moderate to severe acne.” Results showed patients receiving the once-daily medication had fewer inflammatory lesions than those who didn't.
