In the film segment, Dr. Devgan explained that small procedures such as micro-droplet fillers can make a bride feel more youthful and confident on her big day. Dr. Devgan specializes in creating a natural look in which the microdroplets of filler soften wrinkles and fine lines. Along with filling fine lines, a bride can change the look of her profile with a non-invasive and non-surgical rhinoplasty, in which a filler is used to achieve the desired nose shape. Microdroplet fillers also may be used for a lip augmentation, for a natural, pillowy lip shape, customized to the patient's anatomic features.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) for Hair Loss

Hair loss can occur because of stress, lack of sleep, hormones, genetics, hairstyles, and many other factors. This can be a sensitive topic for many individuals as we can get attached to our hair.

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a solution for hair loss that many of Dr. Devgan's patients seek in her New York City office.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) for hair loss uses growth-factor-rich serum from your own blood byproducts to amplify stem cell-mediated hair growth. It helps with hair density, hair thickness, retention of existing hairs, and repopulation of new hair follicles. Patients typically require 4-6 treatments spaced about 1-2 months apart, and improved hair density and growth is typically seen 3-6 months later. PRP therapy for baldness works best in conjunction with optimized nutrition, vitamin levels, and topical medication.

Why Is It Important to Wear Sunscreen on a Cloudy Day?

Wearing sunscreen on a cloudy day is just as important as wearing it on a sunny day. The sun's rays usually are a sign to most people that the skin needs protection from a sunburn, however, on cloudy days, UV rays may be just as prevalent, even if the sun is not visible.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty: Dr. Devgan Answers Your Questions

One of the most frequently asked questioned about a non-surgical rhinoplasty, otherwise known as a non-surgical nose job, is whether the fillers make the nose appear wide or bulbous from the front view.

Dr. Devgan's before and after pictures on her Instagram page show that a non-surgical rhinoplasty can make the nose appear smaller, pronounce the tip, and give it a slope; all qualities that make a nose look flattering on the face. However, since a non-surgical rhinoplasty uses injections to achieve the look that the patient wants, ideally, many would think that this procedure makes the nose look larger than before.

Dr. Devgan uses micro-droplet injections to use the right amount of filler and to never over-use. This helps patients fill the areas in their nose to make it appear smoother and more refined. 

Not only do the profile views of Dr. Devgan's non-surgical rhinoplasty patients show that the micro-droplet procedures do not make the nose look larger or more pronounced, but the front view also shows the nose to still remain slim without appearing wide or bulbous.

A non-surgical rhinoplasty takes two minutes and lasts one to two years. It involves no surgery, incisions, scars, or downtime. A non-surgical rhinoplasty can help patients achieve tip elevation, nose refinement, correct the appearance of dorsal humps, and much more.

All About A Good Lip Augmentation

Many refer to a bad lip augmentation as "duck lips." This can happen when precision, care, and thoroughness, the key ingredients to performing a good lip augmentation, are overlooked.

It is absolutely necessary to have an artistic eye to perform a good lip augmentation. Along with this,  an expertise in anatomy is needed in order to create fuller lips that are suited for each individual patient. For example, the same amount of filler cannot be used in the same places for a patient with larger lips compared to a patient with smaller lips.

Different lip shapes and sizes are given different treatments, depending on what the patient is looking for

To create the most natural look, Dr. Devgan stresses that there should be more pink lip show, without causing excessive fullness of the skin around the lips, and without making the lips stick out too far from the face, which is what most would refer to as the duck face. 

All in all, the goal is to create volume and a soft look of fullness without making the lips stick too far out from the face.
