Freshening Up for Valentine’s Day? You Won’t Be Alone…

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, many couples may be looking to “freshen up” a bit.  In fact, a growing number of couples today are seeking out cosmetic treatment—together.  NBC’s Today Show recently reported on one pair who did just that.  According to Today, Ira and Roberta Almeas “had minimally invasive work done to slow the signs of aging.”  Among the procedures the couple chose were Botox and dermal fillers.This new trend in plastic surgery can surely be attributed to the changing attitudes among men toward cosmetic treatment.  Procedures that were once only popular among women are now being embraced by a growing male population.  When reflecting on the decision to undergo treatment as a couple, Today quotes Mr. Almeas as saying, “We feel a little bit more refreshed, a little bit more energy, and it’s just another part of our life together that we’re sharing.”

Exploring Less-Invasive Cosmetic Treatment

More and more, men and women are seeking out cosmetic treatment to prepare for those special holidays or events.  There are a myriad of less-invasive cosmetic procedures available today.Less-invasive cosmetic procedures you may be interested in:
  • Botox: For lines and creases that appear intermittently, such as “smile lines,” Botox is often the answer.  Essentially, Botox is a muscle relaxer that works to prevent creases in the skin.  The most common sites for Botox injections are the forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet.
  • Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion—also known as microderm—is a procedure used to smooth the skin, soften fine lines and combat the appearance of sun damage.  This is done by introducing a stream of fine particles to the skin.  A non-invasive procedure that doesn’t require anesthesia, microderm usually takes around 30 minutes.
  • Lip augmentation with dermal fillers: Dermal fillers are often used to fill in creases in the skin, but did you know that certain fillers can be used to plump the lips?  A non-surgical alternative to implants, fillers such as Restylane can help provide fuller lips, and results can typically last several months.
