DR. DEVGAN FEATURED IN OK! MAGAZINE AS A LEADING LIP EXPERT

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons lip injections have increased 60 percent since 2000. As Dr. Devgan states, “lip injections have also resulted in demand for a procedure that delivers a more permanent fullness with no upkeep. For a Kylie Jenner look, five to six syringes, which only last about six months, can be an expensive proposition”. The lip obsession is evolving.

What is Dr. Devgan’s solution to this problem? The lip lift, a surgical procedure that increases vertical height of the top lip. This procedure is a great option for the clients who have lips getting thinner due to age. It is also a great option to consider if you do not want to be dependent on fillers or have “duck” looking lips.

Patients are tired of repeat injections and want something more long lasting and uniform. You can also look into getting the lip lift procedure done by using RealSelf. If you haven’t heard, RealSelf is a community-driven website composed of reviews, popularity rankings, and other general information about aesthetics medicine and cosmetic treatments. The site design allows users to ask questions to doctors, write treatment reviews, and share photos of their experiences.

DR. DEVGAN FEATURED IN ALL ABOUT THE TRUTH EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Richards has been accused of getting surgery done in the past but in most recent claims fans and foes are accusing the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star of getting a mini- face lift! Kyle Richards looks have changed over the years and fans are questioning what her secret is. The Bravolebrity has admitted she under went a nose job in 2006.

In a recent Instagram post Kyle revealed she has treatments like botox and lasers done. Kyle later revealed that PRP treatment on her face and lasers is what keeps her looking young and fresh. Dr. Devgan explains that a PRP treatment is a Platelet- rich Plasma protein that is extracted from the patients own blood. The patient's blood is inserted into a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. Platelet- rich Plasma is a clear, yellow fluid that has an increased concentration of growth factors than regular blood. It is used to encourage healing the growth and is also known as "liquid gold."

Platelet-rich plasma has been praised as “liquid gold” for its all the benefits it has for the skin. The plasma is the important component which contains a high concentration of platelets, stem cells, and growth factors. After filtering out the blood cells, you are left with a yellowish liquid full of plasma and a higher than normal amount of platelets.The PRP can then be injected like a dermal filler into the patient’s face, or it can be used with micro needling! You may have heard of micro needling with PRP before, as it is commonly referred to as the “vampire facelift.”

IS DERMAL MICRO- CORING THE NEW NON- SURGICAL FACELIFT ?

Over the last 20 years machines and injectables has risen. Though machines are still popular for surgeries, how can one resist a non-surgical armamentarium: a powerful way to lift and tighten the skin. Non surgical procedures mean little to no down time and who can fault that!? A Boston- based biotech company called Cytrellis comes the world's first ever dermal micro-coring device.

This is an energy- free needling tool that mechanically drills out minuscule columns of skin- each less than half a millimeter in diameter. This shrinks the surface area of your overall skin. Unlike a facelift, micro-coring does not affect the muscles or fascia of the face. The main goal of a surgery other than trimming away skin is to hoist the fallen skin to recapture a more youthful version of your face. Micro- coring might just be the new non surgical facelift.
