Platinum Hyaluronic Serum was the featured product from Dr. Devgan’s Scientific Beauty skincare line and included in the products “You Want Now”. In the the most recent “regram” about this product, the person stated it made their skin feel “plush and hydrated”.

Dr. Devgan considers four products absolute necessities in her skincare line. These include Platinum Glow Serum, Platinum Vitamin C+ Luminous Night Serum, Platinum SPF 45 Daily Tinted BB Cream, and, not surprisingly based on outside reviews, Platinum Hyaluronic Serum. All four of these products if used as directed by Dr. Devgan have worked miracles for many customers ‘and patients’ skin.

Platinum Hyaluronic Serum in particular is incredible. It absorbs 1000 times its weight in water and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This gives the wearer a subtle, soft complexion. Better yet, there are numbers to back up the testimonials! If you are interested check out a couple of facts about Platinum Hyaluronic Serum:

Introducing Art of Surgery Series: Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, commonly referred to as a “boob job” or breast implant surgery, is one of Dr. Devgan’s favorite procedures. In Dr. Devgan's skilled hands, the surgery may last approximately 30 minutes in total through the use of her signature no-touch rapid recovery technique. Although a shortened procedure in Dr. Devgan’s hands, it is performed in a highly skilled and meticulous fashion. Incisions are made in one of three places: around the areola, the armpits, or underneath the breasts. Saline or silicone implants are then placed either under the muscle or under the breasts to give the patient their desired look and feel.

Being that roughly 300,000 American women undergo breast augmentations each year, it is the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in America.

Each patient has different aesthetic goals but a breast augmentation resulting in a beautiful contour, comfort, and a natural look are all common desires. Additionally, seeking out a top female plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Devgan, will ensure that the patient's needs and the procedure are both treated gracefully and discreetly regarding the sensitive topic.

If interested in a breast augmentation, a consultation with Dr. Devgan will ensure that all patient concerns and questions are addressed. Your breasts will be examined, measured and photographed. You will also have the ability to “try on” different breast sizes to determine what size will best achieve the desired goal, look, and feel. During the surgery, usually a 30 minute procedure, Dr. Devgan will provide that the highest quality of care to ensure a fast and seamless recovery while delivering perfect results. Following the procedure, there will be minimal swelling, bruising, and discomfort within the 24-48 hours of surgery. Following the procedure, clearance for all types of physical activity will be typically allowed between 6-8 weeks after the procedure. Of course each patient and case is different, so the timeline of recovery is always dependent on varying factors but will be monitored closely by Dr. Devgan.

Since the breasts can be the centerpiece to many women’s femininity a breast augmentation can be life changing, especially when performed correctly by a top plastic surgeon. If interested in a breast augmentation, please do not hesitate to reach out to Dr. Lara Devgan’s office via email at office@LaraDevganMD.com or via phone call (212)-452-2400.


      

The Upside to an Upturned Nose (Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty with GabsGetGnarly)

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty has surely become one of the most sought after procedures in Dr. Devgan’s office. Often the office is asked about downtime, well there is none or it is negligible. The concept is immediately intriguing to anyone who wishes to have something changed about their nose.

We were thrilled that we can share Gabs Dormio’s experience with everyone from start to finish. Gabs, a travel blogger and commonly known for her GabsGetGnarly page on Instagram, was such a joy to have in our office again and we could not be more pleased that she loved her results.

For those of you who wonder what some reasons are for non-surgical as opposed to surgical, there are a few. For Gabs, it was all about how she wanted a more refined look and to try out what her nose would look like before even considering surgical. For others, the downtime for surgical rhinoplasty, which consists of a few days off work, a few weeks off exercise, bruising, and swelling, is not an option. This is why using a viscous filler to create your perfect look is an excellent choice for a lot of patients.

There is some qualities to remember about non-surgical, the results last 1-2 years before your body will have naturally dissolved the filler. Thus, if you enjoy the look of your nose prior to injection, you will need to have the non-surgical rhinoplasty more frequently. It was also commented that in one of Gabs photos, the “hanging columella from the lateral aspect” was more prominent than before. This is true, especially for those who would like a more upturned nose and would certainly be something to consider surgical rhinoplasty for eventually. However, it is hardly noticeable, if you follow Gabs on social media or see her in person, to anyone without a trained eye. 

Each patient has their own desires. That is why Dr. Devgan does a magnificent job of listening to each patient thoroughly and deciding the ultimate procedure alongside them, rather than for them.

BRA Day; Tea and Talk with Dr. Devgan

BRA DAY TEA PARTY & OPEN HOUSE WITH DR. DEVGAN

WEDNESDAY, OCT 18, 2017

12-5pm

October has become synonymous with a few traditions, including Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A month that used to be primarily associated with Halloween is now filled with football players parading on the field in pink cleats, gloves, and, occasionally, full uniforms. Bloomingdales is decorated with dancing, pink mannequins with fashionable accessories. Along with décor and stylish pink clothing, is that media makes breast cancer a spotlight topic to keep people informed.

The topic of breast cancer is vitally important. Breast cancer prevention and early detection has risen significantly since the early 2000s and the hope is to continue that upward trend. A discussion that is less common is, “What happens after diagnosis?”

There are a variety of options given to patients and at times, more severe forms of breast cancer require extreme lengths, such as the many forms of mastectomy. This can leave patients with self-image issues and unsure how to proceed.

Our office is proud to shine a light on Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day. On October 18th of each year, The American Society of Plastic Surgeons and The Plastic Surgery Foundation join forces to help inform women of their options and celebrate women who have found their answers.

Dr. Devgan invites you to a complimentary afternoon of coffee, tea, delicious light bites, and candid and fun conversations all about the breasts. Decorate a bra, write a good wish to a breast cancer survivor, squeeze a breast implant, and learn everything you want to know about the breasts.

We believe that inner and outer beauty are both important parts of a woman's identity, and that women should feel great about their breasts, whether they have had breast cancer, a previous breast surgery, or have never had surgery at all. Dr. Devgan's philosophy for breast reconstruction is to use the most modern techniques available to give her patients natural, beautiful results without obvious signs of surgery.

All are invited because all of us have a relationship with breast cancer in one way or another-- in ourselves, our family members, or our friends.

Beauty and The Botox

Prevention is better than intervention. 

Dr. Devgan utilizes this tactic with many of her patients and certainly recommends to always use preemptive measures. Kylee Campbell, the LA and NYC based actress, model, and Catch Me Dancing blogger, was interested in Botox for prevention measures during her recent visit to the office.

Botox, a drug developed from botulinum toxin (a bacterial byproduct), has been FDA approved since 1989. Since then, it has been utilized for a myriad of ailments (including gummy smile, eyebrow arch displacement, downturned mouth, etc.). Botox is most commonly discussed for its use in aesthetic-based medicine as it is known for the ability to decrease signs of aging, such as wrinkles, and, lately, is more commonly being employed as a preventative measure for younger men and women.

Although many know Botox from the dreaded “freeze face”, which is an issue of placement and/or amount by the injector, the product can help those who are younger avoid deep lines and wrinkles from prolonged squinting, furrowing of the face, or aging. Dr. Devgan uses her micro-droplet technique, coined “Baby Botox”, for the youthful. The micro-droplet technique combined with a vibration beauty bar allows for a considerable comfort and precise placement of the product.

In order to get optimal results, Dr. Devgan, before even touching the syringe, has a casual conversation while also analyzing facial expression and feature patterns. Alongside her facial anatomy expertise, these moments allow her to evaluate where the best placement of Botox will be and at approximately what amount. Lastly, Dr. Devgan marks areas of concern with white pen to ensure the proper treatment.

In Kylee’s situation, she started to see results in the typical 4-7 day range. Her results will most likely last 3-4 months. Although Kylee is absolutely beautiful, she knows it is best to start washing away wrinkles now rather than trying to fix furrows later.

The Know on Triple Glow with Kelly Karloff

We were so excited to see model Kelly Karloff in our office again to pick up her Platinum Triple Glow Anti-Aging Night Treatment! 

Kelly has been utilizing Dr. Devgan's Platinum Triple Glow to correct for some of her personal skincare issues, which she discusses in the latest YouTube video.

Men and women from across the world have damage from sun exposure or, more commonly for women, hormonal changes. Platinum Triple Glow is an amazing anti-again product, which makes evens skin tone and diminishes normal signs of again, such as wrinkles and deep creases. 

The Platinum Triple Glow is prescription strength, which means Dr. Devgan must personally evaluate whether or not each person is a good candidate. If ordering online, there is a questionnaire about your personal skincare issues. 

To start Platinum Triple Glow it is recommended that each patient begins by applying the product every other day or as Directed by Dr. Devgan. This allows the skin to become accustomed to the formulation of the product. Gradually, once a night use is recommended. 

Always remember to wait for 30 minutes after washing your face with cleanser (per se, the Platinum Revitalizing Cleanser) before applying the Platinum Triple Glow. Stay in touch with the blog and YouTube for new tutorial videos coming soon!

Product Spoplight: Miracle with Microdermabrasion

Guest Blogger: Haley Gravely

Hello to all of Dr. Devgan's fans, patients, and product users! My name is Haley. I am Dr. Devgan's new Media and Research Coordinator who adores pizza as much as I love my job, which is a lot to say because I really love pizza. Unfortunately, something I am not as happy with is my complexion. 

I don't know about everyone else reading, but dry skin is often a concern for me. Particularly heading in to the winter months. Absolutely no one wants to move toward the holiday season shedding dead skin like a snake and, frankly, my skin is prone to a variety of issues. (I will be honest, I was not perfect at taking care of my skin when I was playing sports in the sun for years and, clearly, if pizza is my favorite food I am not the epitome of health.)

The advantage of working at Dr. Devgan's office is that I am exposed to a lot of results from her products and procedures. Something that peaked my interested recently was a product from Dr Devgan's Scientific Beauty skincare line - Platinum Microdermabrasion. Having never tried Dr. Devgan's Scientific Beauty skincare line, the office thought it might be nice to know how someone with a new, but certainly not fresh, face felt about the product. Despite my expensive, strict skincare regimen, I had complaints of flaking skin, pores that often seemed to never feel or look squeaky clean, and overall dullness. 

dr. lara devgan scientific beauty

At first, I was slightly nervous to try a new product. Many previous skincare lines have left me with a red hue and, more often than not, dryer than before I put the so-called fix on my face. 

I followed Dr. Devgan's instructions, even if not to a T. I spread and gently rubbed the light teal-blue Platinum Microdermabrasion formulation, which consists of active sugar cane extract, lemon fruit extract, apple fruit extract, green tea leaf extract as well as pumice granules, on my face generously until fully covered; however, I could have also utilized the product on my neck too. After, I thoroughly massaged the product in, rinsed my face with water, and patted with a towel as directed. This process only took about 5 minutes in total, which is awesome since it only needs to be used two times a week.

What I was amazed by was the degree of change my face had after just one use with no signs of redness. Often for extensive results I had to compromise on one or the other, either my face had that dreaded windburn look or the product did not rid my complexion issues. Platinum Microdermabrasion seemed to be a wonder, but I waited a few days before making a final judgement.

Nearly three days later (Today!), I checked my face in the mirror. To my surprise, even after stopping all other skincare, since my use of Platinum Microdermabrasion, my face was still clear and bright with no signs of irritation. That was a certainly a miracle product considering the amount of time and money I have wasted on skincare lines that end with subprime results.
