Injectables and weight loss procedures to dominate 2009 (January 2009 Issue)
Non-surgical treatments are set to reach an increasingly diverse audience, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). The widening audience for aesthetic medicine will be lead by growing social acceptance of treatments and the development of more procedures that meet different needs, says the association. Other predictions include a growth in popularity of fillers as products evolve; and an accelerated growth in development of faster acting, less invasive treatments sparked by consumer demand.
Botox can reverse ageing according to study (October 2008 Issue)
The long-term use of Botox can reverse the ageing process, confirmed Dr Patrick Bowler in a new study.
The study by Dr Bowler of Court House Clinic, which was published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, confirmed that the long-term use of Botox can reverse the ageing process by permanently erasing forehead expression lines and re-modeling the skin by allowing it to "rest" and renew. The study comes after recent findings by consultant plastic surgeon Rajiv Grover that long-term use of botulinum toxin alters the ageing process in the upper face.
Botulinum toxin slows brow ageing process (September 2008 Issue)
The long-term use of botulinum toxin alters the ageing process in the upper face, according to a new study by consultant plastic surgeon Rajiv Grover. The study came about after Grover carried out several consultations with patients seeking a second facelift (some years after having the first with a different surgeon) and began to notice differences between those who had used botulinum toxin over several years and those who had not.
By rebalancing the facial muscles it appears that botulinum toxin reduces the changes of drooping of the forehead and brow seen with ageing.

A recent study has found that 95% of patients preferred Juvederm® Ultra 3 as an injection experience over Restylane Perlane®.
The study, a split-face comparison of two hyaluronic acid facial fillers in the treatment of naso-labial folds, involved 126 people. Subjects were blinded as to which side was injected with each product. The level of injection pain and ease of injection were assessed by the injectors while the patients assessed the level of injection pain and said whether they had a preference for one treatment over the other and, if so, why.

The male botulinum toxin industry was estimated to be worth £1m in 2007, with 20% of botulinum toxin patients being men. According to the figures, the number of men opting for the treatment has doubled over the last two years.

And with more and more celebrities admitting to enhancing their looks, real men aren’t afraid to either and botox is no longer taboo.
