We’re All About Your Selfie at Blu Cocoon MedSpa

You may have seen some articles recently floating around online about the rise in facial plastic surgery due to the trend of posting “selfies” (a snapshot that a person takes of themselves with a phone or tablet) to social media accounts like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. The report was based on a survey of plastic surgeons by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) and noted increases in rhinoplasty, hair transplants, and eyelid surgery last year.

Very interesting, right? But what does this have to do with Blu Cocoon MedSpa? Well, we respect the fact that people get plastic surgery for many reasons however we’re here to tell you that if you are considering plastic surgery simply because you want to look better in selfies than you may want to consider other options, such as Botox, dermal fillers, and chemical peels. Can these replace plastic surgery? No. But often people underestimate the power that one, or all, of these medspa services have to alter an appearance.

Take Botox, for example. There is a reason why 11 million people (and counting) have tried Botox. It relaxes the muscles in your forehead that cause worry lines, frowns, and crows feet (around the eyes). A smoother forehead makes many people look relaxed, worry-free, and, of course, younger. The treatment has no downtime and the results can last 3 to 4 months.

Dermal fillers (such as Restylane or Perlane) are less widely known but produce results that are highly desired. This injectable treatment fills in crevices, wrinkles, and replaces lost volume in many areas of the face. As we age, crevices become deeper (such as the lines from your nose to your mouth) and the face may droop or seem deflated. Fillers can reinstate the high cheekbones that you once had, redefine the jawline to make it look sharper, plump the lips and much more. Going to a skilled clinician is key to getting great results that look natural. Often people combine a treatment of Botox with fillers and feel like they’ve reclaimed their youth – or at least like they’ve lost five to ten years!

Chemical peels are for everyone and especially for those who have youth on their side but are looking to have a “flawless” selfie complexion. A peel helps to slough off dead skin which creates a more even skin tone. It can also be very effective in clearing skin for those who have clogged pores or are fighting acne. A peel also addresses fine lines by diminishing them. Your overall skin appearance is improved and camera ready.

The best part about all of these treatments is that they cost a fraction of what plastic surgery costs. On top of that, they have little to no downtime and can be done in about an hour (give or take) at our medspa in San Jose. So, if you’re considering plastic surgery but aren’t sold on it, you may find that Botox, fillers, and other medspa treatments are a great way to rejuvenate your appearance without going under the knife.
