Beverly Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Just as people scramble to do fast home makeovers in advance of holiday celebrations with friends and family, a growing number of people are taking advantage of quick cosmetic procedures to put their best face forward during the holidays. In fact, Beverly Hills facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon Paul Nassif, MD says that increased demand for botox and injectable fillers prior to Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s has him working overtime.
“I really see two trends converging in the seasonal rush for these procedures,” says Dr. Nassif. “Social media means that all those candid holiday photos are going to end up on Facebook and Twitter for everyone to see and who doesn’t want to look their best in pictures. Secondly, we’re able to do amazing things with fillers now that can take years off of your appearance in minutes at an affordable cost.“
While fillers like Restylane and Perlane can help volumize the face and erase smile lines and under eye hollows, Dr. Nassif is increasingly using fillers in innovative ways such as in the temple area. The temple area is one of the first places to lose volume as we age, resulting in what Dr. Nassif refers to as “peanut head.” He also uses techniques for improving the brow area with fillers and wrinkles relaxers like Botox and Dysport.
“Traditional ‘brow lifts’ often elevated the brows to unnatural heights, but it is not lifting but volumizing the eyebrow region that really enhances your appearance,” he adds.
The seasonal uptick in injectables is in line with cosmetic surgery trends overall. According to statistics released earlier this year from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, soft tissue fillers were among the fastest growing cosmetic procedures in 2011 up 7% over 2010 figures.
