Survey Says: Top Non-Surgical Holiday Treatments
Allowing enough time for your treatment can be a stress reducer
This is the time of year for company parties, family gatherings, and other holiday events. If you want to look your best during the holidays, be sure to allow sufficient time to book your appointment and for any downtime associated with your aesthetic care.
Data from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reveals these non-surgical treatments to be the most popular at this time of year:
- 1. Botox – Most commonly used to treat frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet around the eyes and creases in the neck.
- Juvederm and Restylane – Hyaluronic acid (HA) based fillers that boost volume and gives you a firmer look on your chin and jawline.
- Laser Hair Removal – Removes unwanted hair anywhere on the body, including the face, arms, back, underarms, and bikini.
- Microdermabrasion – Typically done on the face, chest, neck, arms or hands, to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage or stretch marks, exposing a smoother, younger-looking skin.
- Chemical peel – Causes dead skin to slough off and eventually peel, revealing regenerated skin that is usually smoother and less wrinkled.
If you want to look and feel your best for the holidays, schedule your appointment early. When you do, let us know the date of your celebrations and we’ll arrange your appointment in time.

Study: Stress Can Cause Facial Aging
But there is a way to maintain a youthful look…
In a study conducted at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, researchers found that stress is a significant contributor to facial aging and can “wreak havoc on one’s face.”
The study was published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and showed that some environmental factors such as divorce or the use of antidepressants – which contribute to the relaxation of facial muscles – can add years to a person’s perceived age. Avoiding stress causes can “slow down the hands of time.”
Fillers to the rescue…
Another conclusion of the study is that fillers can help slow some of the accelerated aging. One of the study’s author’s said, “This research is important for two reasons. First, we have discovered a number of new factors that contribute to aging and second, our findings put science behind the idea that volume replacement rejuvenates the face.”
Facial Aesthetic Concepts has several filler options to help restore volume and rejuvenate your face. To learn more, click here.

Considering Facial Surgery? Consider This…
Surgical quality often depends on location
The recent 7% rise in cosmetic surgeries indicates that more people agree that surgery is still the gold standard for a refreshed, youthful look.
One of the most important areas of facial plastic surgery – the quality of the surgery center – is also one of the least discussed.
Surgery center accreditation is crucial. Without it, you should not proceed with your cosmetic surgery.
Here are three of the reasons why accreditation matters, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons:
- Physician’s certifications are checked routinely, making sure no unlicensed professionals are working.
- Anesthesia standards are clearly set, and always administered by a licensed anesthesiologist.
- Accredited ambulatory facilities are shown to have exceptionally low rates of serious complications and low mortality rates.
The surgery center at FAC is fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Here, our board certified surgeons perform a variety of procedures to approve the appearance of the face and neck.

ASAPS: Patients Love Their Injections
That’s the conclusion of their research
Botulinum toxin type A injections are the most common cosmetic procedure performed in the United States, with 4.3 million procedures performed in 2015 accounting for 42% of all cosmetic procedures in that year, based on the Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, (ASAPS).
According to a new study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the official publication of ASAPS, patient satisfaction with their overall facial appearance increased by 28% with injections to the so-called “11s” (the glabellar rhytids which are the lines that appear between the brows as we age).
Patients stated that they believe they look an average of 5.6 years younger post-injection with any of the botulinum toxin type A products, which includes Botox.
