Lindsay Lohan has done a lot lately to shed her party-girl image. Today, the International Business Times is asking, did Lindsay also do a lot—to her face? Lohan, who has become known more for her criminal record than her acting, sat down with Matt Lauer to explain that her partying days are behind her. What was more surprising, however, was how she looked.
“Fans could not help but notice how drastically different the actress' face looked,” reports the IBTimes. “Skeptics took to Twitter to voice their critiques on Lohan's new look and bring up the possibility of plastic surgery.” The paper then sought the opinion of a plastic surgeon who was quoted as saying, “‘She looks like she has had an excessive amount of filler injected in her face…'”
So, while cosmetic treatments like injectable fillers can make many patients look younger and fresher, they can absolutely be taken too far.
Why do countless women and men opt for injectables every year? The answer is simple—they work! Based on the most recent data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, BOTOX® and Fillers are the number one category when it comes to cosmetic procedures in the US. As with all cosmetic treatments, though, moderation is key. It's all about achieving a natural, refreshed and beautiful look.
The two major categories of injections:
Botulinum Toxin Type A: Botulinum Toxin Type A is a category that includes BOTOX® and Dysport®. Both are essentially muscle relaxers that work to prevent creases from forming in the skin. These treatments work best on lines that appear intermittently, such as “frown lines.” For wrinkles that are deeper or more persistent, fillers are often the better option.
Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® work to fill in the spaces or “valleys” of creases. Certain fillers can also be used to plump the lips and give the face a more youthful shape.
