Q: What are the new trends in cosmetic procedures?

A: Minimally invasive, no downtime or short downtime procedures have been the trend for the past several years, says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish.

“For people who are candidates, we tend to perform a mini-facelift instead of a facelift. The popularity of a coronal brow lift has switched to the less invasive endoscopic forehead lift,” Dr. Danish points out.

“We’re trending toward more longer-lasting fillers that give a good result, with little or no side effects. The latest product is Bellafill®, an injectable collagen filler containing microscopic permanent beads. Bellafill® adds volume, corrects smile lines, and results can last up to 5 years.
“The trend with lasers and other technology for noninvasive facial and body contouring, skin tightening and hair removal, is that they’re more comfortable and effective than in the past.”

As each person’s anatomy, skin type and cosmetic wishes are unique, it’s best to schedule a consultation with Dr. Danish to learn your options and the expected results.
