Every month, we attempt to bring you a balanced combination of breaking news (for example, what Priyanka Chopra disclosed about her failed nose surgery) and practical guidance, such as how to choose whether Ozempic or bariatric surgery is the better option for weight loss. However, there is always an intriguing headline or viral post that, while not a stand-alone tale, is still worth sharing.
Which brings us to the newest chapter of This Month in Life 360, a summary of industry-molding moments we’d be foolish not to mention—from thrilling new FDA approvals to the celebrity who has sworn off plastic surgery following a poor facelift experience.
Kylie Jenner regrets getting fillers.
Kylie Jenner reportedly admitted to getting lip filler in 2015, citing the increased volume as making her feel more confident about a “big insecurity.” However, eight years later, the reality TV star appears to be rethinking her decision. Jenner is shown telling a buddy in a new trailer for season three of The Kardashians, “I wish I never touched anything to begin with.” Stormi, Jenner’s 5-year-old daughter, appears to have impacted her filler regret. Jenner hopes Stormi will not follow in her footsteps when it comes to cosmetic treatments. “All of us just need to have a bigger conversation about the beauty standards that we’re setting,” she says to her sisters in another scenario.
Skinvive by Juvéderm has been approved by the FDA to become the first and only hyaluronic acid microdroplet injection in the United States.
Skinvive by Juvéderm, a hyaluronic acid intradermal micro droplet injectable from Allergan Aesthetics, was approved by the FDA, making it the first and only product of its kind in the United States. The injectable, which is safe for all skin types and ages (21 and older), promises to improve skin texture and quality of the cheeks for up to six months by adding hydration subcutaneously. Skinvive’s approval comes as demand for hyaluronic acid microdroplet injections—or “skin boosters,” as they’re sometimes called—is on the rise, with many American patients traveling to Europe to receive similar injectables, like Profhilo, which has been available there for eight years. Skinvive is anticipated to be broadly available within the next six months.
Sharon Osbourne is done with plastic surgery after a botched facelift
Sharon Osbourne revealed the details of her second facelift in an interview with The Sun, claiming that the experience put her off additional plastic surgery. She claimed the treatment, which she had in late 2021, left her in excruciating discomfort and with the appearance of a “cyclops”—though it was unclear if she had a full facelift or just a lower or upper facelift.
Osbourne, who has always been open about her cosmetic procedures, stated that she is pleased with the results now that her face has “settled,” but that the experience has scared her away from having any more done.
Sculptra has been approved by the FDA to treat cheek wrinkles
The FDA authorized Sculptra, a longer-lasting filler used on nasolabial folds, for the treatment of cheek wrinkles. Since 2009, the Poly-L-lactic acid filler has been approved for the repair of facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds, chin wrinkles, and marionette lines, but this new approval will broaden its uses to include wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. Sculptra differs from conventional hyaluronic acid-based fillers in that it is created using a biocompatible synthetic polymer that encourages the formation of natural collagen and elastin. With its new approval for the treatment of cheek wrinkles, patients and physicians now have another option when deciding on the optimal filler for their specific needs.
Medical aesthetics has developed as a bridge between self-confidence and self-expression in a society where feeling good is just as vital as looking good. These procedures give a means to completely embody the greatest version of oneself, whether it’s smoothing out a few wrinkles, contouring jawline, or simply improving what you already love about yourself. Medical aesthetics’ blend of science and artistry not only revitalizes appearances but also the spirit, reminding us that a little additional care may go a long way in increasing our general well-being. So, here’s to embracing the power of medical aesthetics – where a touch of beauty meets a touch of magic, allowing us to look and feel our best.
