Insider Lists Botox, Fillers, and Kybella as the “Most Popular Procedures Amongst the Rich and Famous”

Good news—you don’t have to be rich or famous to enjoy what Insider magazine ranks as the most-requested procedures for those in the one percent. Kybella, Botox, and dermal fillers all made the list, and all are available at RefinedMD. Injectables are one of the quickest ways to upgrade your look with minimal to no downtime. Many people benefit from mixing and matching these procedures, and in many cases you can undergo multiple treatments during the same visit. This is especially true if you’re getting fillers in multiple areas. Want to know which areas are most revered by A-listers?

According to Insider, it’s all about volumizing the cheeks and contouring the jawline. Ultimately, it’s reported that people simply want to get “snatched,” and fillers are an easy way to do this. Cheekbone fillers are especially popular because the cheekbones are an ideal platform for fillers. You can get a customized look in this area, and many are after that elusive high cheekbone aesthetic.

When it comes to jaw narrowing, dermal fillers can help with that, too. Fillers in this area, often combined with Botox to ease the masseter muscle presence, can help you achieve a sharper look. Botox helps this muscle appear smaller, making your face look slimmer, which complements the work fillers are doing to fill up the space.

Botox Goes with Everything

Is there anything Botox can’t do? In addition to helping to slim the jawline, Botox can also help you get that “fox eye” look that’s trending right now. This neuromodulator (and others) gives a slight lift to the eyebrow by stopping certain muscles around the eye from contracting. This results in less sagging and a better arch. Of course, such a look is ideal no matter what is in fashion, but with today’s sexy fox eyes being all the rage, Botox in this area is one fast and easy way to achieve it.

Botox is also a go-to staple for anyone looking to stop or prevent lines and wrinkles. After all, that’s what it was known for first. Botox injections temporarily freeze muscles that cause unwanted lines and wrinkles. Younger patients are using “baby Botox” to teach key muscles to be weaker and, in turn, delaying lines and wrinkles in the first place. Common injection sites for this goal include between the brows, on the forehead, and around the corners of the eyes to stop crow’s feet. It’s not uncommon to need more Botox as you age. On average, results of Botox last 3 – 6 months.

What About Kybella?

Have you heard of buccal fat removal? It’s also trending right now, with celebrities like Lea Michele allegedly having it done. It’s a surgery that calls for a small incision inside the cheek to remove the fat pads that cause that round, baby face. However, many people—including plastic surgeons—warn against it. This trend is popular amongst younger, 20-something folks, who might not realize this fat will decrease with age (without a surgical intervention necessary). Many think this makes people look older than they are and there’s no telling how their face will age after buccal fat removal. There’s a chance they might be opting for fat grafting or routine fillers in this area in future years.

Instead, to look slimmer in the face, Kybella can help. Volume in the cheeks is never a problem. In fact, it makes you look younger (hello, baby face). Insider recommends Kybella for those who have excess fat in the submental area (under the chin). Now, this is an area where fat never looks good. Kybella uses a series of injections of synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a natural fat-burner. However, it should be used conservatively since it burns away fat for good. This is why you need a series of injections spaced one month apart. Your injector will gauge results at each visit to ensure the ideal amount is ultimately removed.
