On this week’s Doc Chat Radio show on WXNT 1430AM in Indianapolis from 12:00 to 1:00PM on Saturday afternoon, hosted by Dr. Barry Eppley Indianapolis plastic surgeon, the very popular topic of injectable anti-aging and facial rejuvenation treatments was presented. With a guest facial plastic surgeon, the numerous injectable treatments of Botox and Injectable Fillers and their role in facial rejuvenation and enhancement was discussed.
In the past, cosmetic plastic surgery was all about having surgery to reverse the effects of aging on the face. Time was, once you were scared enough by what you saw staring back at you in from the mirror every morning, facelifts, eye tucks and the like were routine procedures with all of the associated bandages, expense and gossiping tongues.
Since 2002, non-surgical injectable alternatives have burst onto the anti-aging scene in ways that never could have been predicted. The concepts of muscle paralysis, plumping fillers, and fat dissolving agents have made it possible to have smooth foreheads, fuller lips and softer laugh lines, and maybe some subtle tightening of the jowls and neck in a few simple visits to the doctor’s office. Unlike surgery, injectable facial treatments are as much about the prevention of the effects of aging as they are about reversing what has already taken place.
Along with this explosion of available injectable treatments have come the inevitable, unbelievable marketing claims, and so-called ‘expert’ injectors. But, like much of what you may read on the internet, in popular magazines, and hear in commercials , what can you really believe? How do you separate reality from marketing hype? How can you decide where-or if-injectable treatments fit into your needs and desires?
Today’s programs discussed all of these issues to help the listener discern whether and which of the injectable beauty treatments is right for them.
