Yahoo News recently published the article “Pre-wedding cosmetic treatments are reportedly on the rise”, which brings to light new data released by RealSelf, for which Dr. Devgan is Chief Medical Officer. According to RealSelf, there is a 30% spike in wedding-related reviews from patients in 2019, with specific regard to nonsurgical procedures taking up at least 46% of this spike.
