New Yorkers might be the most resilient of city-dwellers, but we can also be the most run down, which doesn’t exactly do wonders for our looks. Luckily, from massages to facials, we’ve got help. When it comes to rejuvenation, Dr. Devgan’s Gold Microinfusion Facial doesn’t mess around. Publications like Elle and Glamour have raved about Devgan’s treatment, and even Kate Sandoval, Beauty Editor of Shape, dubbed it “the best facial of my life.”

The Gold Microinfusion Facial utilizes the microneedling technique, but with a twist, “by infusing tiny amounts of botox and hyaluronic acid fillers through a special vial equipped with gold-plated needles (that’s the microneedling part), patients walk out with minimal downtime—generally just a little post-procedure redness.” Read the the full article here.

'Rich Girl Face' is the Cosmetic Surgery Trend that Everyone Wants in 2019 - Dr. Devgan featured on her.ie

Dr. Devgan was recently interviewed on Her in an article entitled “'Rich Girl Face' is the Cosmetic Surgery Trend that Everyone Wants in 2019,” which discusses the evolution of how we view cosmetic enhancement.

From botox and fillers to chemical peels and lasers, the accessibility of cosmetic work has also assisted in de-stigmatizing it. In years prior, plastic surgery was considered shameful, and only for the stereotypical woman who lacked substance; but this new generation of patients is wearing their work as a symbol of pride. Plumped lips and flawless skin have become last decade’s Louis Vuitton handbag, some even dubbing this look as “rich girl face.”

Though Dr. Devgan isn’t a fan of the phrase, she’s doing her part to normalize cosmetic improvement. Devgan says, “we’re in the era of minimally invasive medical aesthetic procedures. I think that is not only because of low downtime, lower cost, and lower invasiveness, but also because there's lower stigma and lower barrier to entry." She frequently expresses to her audience that it’s okay to want to look and feel your best. Read the full article here.

The Stealthy Lies People Tell to Cover up Their Plastic Surgery - Dr. Devgan featured in Town & Country

Dr. Devgan was recently featured in Town & Country’s article “The Stealthy Lies People Tell to Cover up Their Plastic Surgery,” which breaks down the lengths patients will go to keep their work private, from hiding the financial proof to disguising the results.

The most common subterfuges surrounding cosmetic procedures center around the price tag. Shared bank accounts often make it difficult to keep personal investments private, so patients will utilize the use of cash, gift cards, or even by scheduling other medical treatments to mask their spending.

Though hiding side-affects like bruising and swelling often require creative ploys, the real challenge comes from explaining the final results. Dr. Devgan mentions the benefits of distraction, “"for example, bright red lipstick or a new hair color. The human mind just wants to hang its hat on something— not necessarily your full medical record— so if you look fresh and you just changed your hair color, that’s enough for most people.” Read the full article here.

Women Are Getting Plastic Surgery to Look Like Meghan Markle - Dr. Devgan featured on Yahoo! Lifestyle

Dr. Devgan was recently interviewed on Yahoo! Lifestyle in an article entitled “Women Are Getting Plastic Surgery to Look Like Meghan Markle.” The article explores one of the latest beauty trends: women modeling their cosmetic ideal after the Duchess of Cambridge.

Since Meghan Markle burst into international spotlight, women of all ethnicities are using her as their inspiration when visiting their plastic surgeons. Dr. Devgan mentions, “She represents the broadening of widespread cultural beauty standards that I think can make a lot more people feel at home in the world.” From her nose to her lips, even her skin, women are hoping to re-create Markle’s look. Dr. Devgan adds that her Gold Microinfusion Facial is one of the best solutions to achieve the flawless skin of the Duchess. This procedure “uses a small mechanized device to make thousands of controlled-depth needle punctures on the surface of the skin. Each one of those instills a minuscule quantity of a custom combination of botox, fillers and skincare products which work together to give the skin a really glowy look,” says Devgan.

The article also explores whether it’s healthy to envy another’s appearance. Devgan clearly notes the difference between the extremes, “If you’re trying to physically morph into another human being, that’s not realistic and it may speak to a larger problem in terms of your mindset and expectations, but if you’re using an image purely to communicate your goal or inspiration then I think that’s totally fine.

Why We Can’t Look Away From Before-And-After Pictures – Dr. Devgan featured on Vox Media

Dr. Devgan was recently featured on Vox Media in an article entitled “Why We Can’t Look Away From Before-And-After Pictures”, which explores the strangely compelling phenomenon of before-and-after photos, and why we’re drawn to transformations, albeit kitchen renovations, weight loss photos, and surgical alterations. 

Before-and-after photos offer us proof that certain achievements are possible, and therefore draw us in by making the idea of transformation relatable, implant a curiosity that leaves us wanting more, and provide us with a satisfying resolution.  Some outlets have even exploited our allure, misleading us with impractical results.  Facebook has banned such advertising for these reasons.

Dr. Devgan feels that before-and-after photos offer her patients a realistic understanding of what they can expect from surgical and nonsurgical procedures.  She avoids misleading us by only posting photos of her actual patients, along with their actual results.  The accessibility of social media allows potential patients to easily explore her catalog of before-and-after photos on a variety of silhouettes, giving them a glimpse into all the transformation possibilities.
