Treat “Zoom Gloom” with These 10 Natural-Looking Beauty Enhancements

Zoom Gloom or Zoom Fatigue is leading to a surge in cosmetic surgery.

Zoom Gloom is the term given to the fatigue we all feel from video chatting constantly during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

You know those meetings that could have been emails? Now they’re Zoom meetings, and everyone is sick of them.

Research is showing that Zoom gloom can leave you feeling drained. It can also leave you with low-self-esteem.

It should be noted that while Zoom is getting a bad rap, these feelings can also be felt on platforms like FaceTime, Skype, and other face-to-face video chats.

Now, some are signing up for cosmetic surgery because of the Zoom Fatigue effect. The motivation to change your appearance might come from staring at yourself inside that tiny box in the corner during these meetings. When there are other people on screen, you can’t help but compare. How much of your nose takes up your face and whether your lips are too small might have never bothered you before. But when you put your face next to Bob or Betty in HR, you can’t help but see yourself as a troll.

There are several good reasons to get cosmetic surgery, which is entirely safe during the coronavirus pandemic. You can recover in the comfort of home now that you have so much downtime, and you have a medical excuse to skip out on Zoom calls (at least the video part). Best of all, there is a range of cosmetic procedures to choose from.

Here are ten cosmetic surgeries that give natural-looking results, and that will help you look your best during your next Zoom video call.

1- Face Lift

Face Lift

There are tricks you use to help yourself look more glamorous on a video call. The right lighting can help to minimize eyebags and wrinkles, for instance. But lighting can’t really help sag or hide folds of skin.

A face lift gives you a younger appearance. By opting for this cosmetic procedure, you can reduce sagging skin and skin folds. You can also sharpen your cheekbones and jawline, and correct jowls and significant facial wrinkles.

During the procedure, your skin is pulled back and tightened. It makes your skin appear firmer and more youthful than your natural years.

There is some downtime associated with facelift surgery. You will take some time to heal from your procedure and your results will continue to look better every day from that point forward. You should be able to resume Zoom calls after four weeks. At twelve weeks, you should be completely healed, allowing you and everyone else to see all the years erased from your appearance.

2- Liposuction & HD VASER Lipo

You’ve likely heard all about liposuction. It retains its title for being one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries since it was first made available in 1974. Using a thin tube called a cannula, your cosmetic procedure can remove large pockets of stubborn fat from various areas of your body. Did you know that you can have liposuction performed on your cheeks and neck? Having liposuction done on these two areas can make your face appear thinner and more attractive inside the tiny Zoom box.

VASER high-definition liposuction goes a bit deeper than regular lipo. It can give you that etched and sculpted effect that usually only comes with years of struggle in the gym. Tell your cosmetic surgeon your aesthetic goals and your doctor will go to work, carving your abdomen, arms, thighs, flanks, cheeks, and other parts with the agile hands of an artist, down to the last detail.

3- Kybella Double Chin Treatment

Kybella Double Chin Treatment in Los Angeles CA

Does your double chin jiggle every time you intonate, laugh, or otherwise emote during meetings? Kybella injectable treatment is FDA approved to fill-out the area below your chin for a more streamlined look.

Kybella is a non-surgical technique that uses an injectable synthetic acid to target fat cells. The synthetic acid used in Kybella is based on deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. The acid goes to work after being injected into your skin by targeting the fat cells at the treatment site. This makes the skin appear thinner and firmer over time.

Each Kybella treatment can be completed in around thirty minutes in your cosmetic surgeon’s office. The results, which are permanent, will be fully realized within four to six weeks after your final treatment. The injections are given over several sessions, which helps you achieve a sculpted and toned face. Your skin will also take on a whole new glow on account of Kybella’s skin rejuvenating effects.

4- Skin-Tightening Renuvion

Want to look younger when engaging in meetings? Renuvion just entered the chat. This cosmetic treatment tightens and rejuvenates your skin without surgery. Using J-Plasma technology, which utilizes a combination of radio waves and helium plasma energy, Renuvion heats the tissue at the treatment site. No other tissues are affected while the stream is active.

The stream is precision-targeted and perfect for hard-to-reach areas like the regions around the eyes. Renuvion is also ideal for jowls and saggy cheeks. Once heated, the skin begins to tighten, which smooths away fine lines and wrinkles just like a facelift. You could say that Renuvion gives you a facelift without the scars or downtime, which is why it is so loved by Zoom aficionados.

5- Facial Fat Transfer

Video chat boxes tend to reveal all the contours of our faces. When your face has lost volume in places due to age, Zoom meetings can accentuate that loss, making you look older than you are. With fat transfer, you can have your own fatty tissue injected into your face to smooth out those contours for a chiseled or feminine effect.

Facial fat transfer is also referred to as fat grafting and the procedure is known as an autologous procedure, which means you are donating the tissue to yourself. The fat cells you donate come from other areas of your body such as your abdomen, thighs, back, and arms. Your surgeon extracts the fat using traditional liposuction.

The fatty tissue is first purified before it is injected into your face to fill-in valleys and smooth-out contours. All those areas where bone tissue has diminished or where fatty tissue is lost will now appear youthful and firm, as if nature turned back the clock.

6- Lip Augmentation

Lip Augmentation- Los Angeles CA

For lips that are barely there, lip augmentation can give you the pout you crave. All the celebrities are doing it. Even Instagram influencers are jumping on the trend. We’re referring to plump lips, the kind only the likes of Mick Jagger used to have. These days, you don’t have to be born with it. Your cosmetic surgeon can give you thicker and fuller lips through the use of injectable dermal fillers.

The most common fillers include Restylane, Silk, Belotero, Juvederm Volbella, and Juvederm Ultra XC. Your cosmetic surgeon will determine how much filler to use based on the size of your natural lips and your aesthetic goals. The results are immediately apparent and there is no downtime.

The treatment takes around thirty minutes and usually only requires a single vial per session, which makes it more affordable than other cosmetic treatments. For best results, schedule follow-up injections every four to six months to keep your lips in pucker-perfect shape.

7- Laser Hair Removal

When you have facial hair and hate shaving, turn to laser hair removal, now available at your local cosmetic surgeon’s office. Your doctor uses a Diolaze XL laser, which targets and destroys hair growth rapidly for an instantly smooth effect.

The treatment uses a pulsing laser to eradicate the hair. Your hair growth should significantly reduce after a few sessions. The number of sessions you require will depend on your hair type, hair color, skin tone, and the area of the body being treated.

The procedure is fast, painless, and can be used on any hair texture.

8- BOTOX® Cosmetic (Injectable Neurotoxin)

BOTOX® Cosmetic (Injectable Neurotoxin)- Los Angeles CA

You never think about age until it’s staring you in the face. When your Zoom box looks like a much older person staring back at you, BOTOX® and other injectable neurotoxins can help. This cosmetic-treatment-in-a-syringe can tighten the skin and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.

The neurotoxin, once injected, blocks certain chemicals in the nerves that cause the muscles in the face to contract. This relaxes the muscle, causing wrinkles around the forehead and around the eyes to fade away.

Results can last between three and four months, but they will wear off. Having the treatment repeated every three months or so can lengthen the effect of the relaxed muscles, making you look more youthful every time you have to be on screen.

9- Breast Augmentation/Gynecomastia Treatment

Your face isn’t the only thing that shows on camera during Zoom meetings. Your chest may be visible as well. Breast augmentation for women and gynecomastia treatment for men can give you a more attractive chest, making you look out of this world inside that tiny box.

Natural breast augmentations and traditional breast augmentations can both make your breasts larger. If you don’t want size, both techniques can also improve your breast shape, correcting asymmetrical breasts, for example. Natural augmentations use the fat transfer technique. Instead of injecting the fat into your lips, the fat is extracted from another area and injected into each breast for more volume and improved shape.

Regular breast augmentations use silicone implants to give your breasts the intended size and contour. Don’t think you have to go melon-sized, either. Today’s breast implants are smaller in size than in years past, giving your silhouette more naturally-appearing curves.

For men who experience male breast growth, gynecomastia surgery or male breast reduction can give you a flatter, more masculine chest. Your cosmetic surgeon will use liposuction to remove the fat from your chest. When glandular tissue is present, the excess fat and tissue can be cut away, giving you more manly “pecs”.

Breast augmentations and gynecomastia surgery can boost your self-esteem, making Zoom video meetings much more tolerable.

10- Upper Eyelid Surgery

Upper Eyelid Surgery for Treat Zoom Gloom- Los Angeles CA

Drooping upper eyelid skin can make you appear overworked and exhausted. Not the best look when trying to impress your boss. If undereye bags are making you feel self-conscious, and especially if they are getting in the way of your vision, upper eyelid surgery can help.

During the procedure, your surgeon will correct the bags under your eyes. This procedure will fill out any hollowness and eliminate fine wrinkles along the lower eyelids. Your surgeon can even tighten loose skin on the upper and lower eyelids, giving you a youthful and refreshed appearance.

How to Repair & Rejuvenate Your Skin After Sun Damage

 

Summer is a time for sunshine, vacation, and family fun. But sometimes the memories made can also be visible on your skin. Your skin can take a major hit after a long and glorious summer. However, Med Spa treatments can be perfect for repairing your skin. Here are some of the best Med Spa treatments for combatting sun damage.

Non-Invasive Treatments to Even Skin Tone 

Lumecca IPL Skin Rejuvenation -Los Angeles- Glendale - Encino CA-

A nice summer glow is an obvious sign of a well-spent summer. However, too much sun can create uneven skin tone and sunspots, leaving your skin feeling lack-luster. 

Photofacial treatments such as Lumecca IPL Skin Rejuvenation can help restore your skin to a healthy-looking glow. Lumecca uses intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to target skin irregularities such as dark spots, acne scars, and even Rosacea. 

This advanced laser offers a quick, safe, and effective treatment plan in as little as 2 treatments, compared to other lasers that may take a total of 4-5 treatments to see the desired results.  

Minimally Invasive Treatments to Combat Aging Skin 

Not only does sun exposure cause immediately visible effects on the skin, but it can damage your skin’s healing processes as well. When this happens, your skin struggles to “bounce back” faster. This leads to increased wrinkling and potential sagging from the damage. 

Botox for Sun Damage

Botox is an injectable treatment that will temporarily “freeze” the muscles responsible for causing these wrinkles, allowing the wrinkles to relax and fade. The doctors can perform this procedure in their office in less than half an hour, with few side-effects. 

Is Botox Safe?

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is widely used and FDA approved. Because Botox is not a permanent procedure, it does not cause long-term nerve damage to the area of administration. With few adverse side-effects and complications, such as temporary headaches and mild bruising that will subside, Botox is a safe and temporary solution to combat cosmetic issues. 

Dermal Fillers for Sun Damage

Dermal or “soft-tissue” fillers are another injectable treatment to fight against signs of aging due sun exposure. We’re all familiar with the term “baby face” and dermal fillers makes this a reality. Instead of simply tightening the facial muscles to prevent and remove wrinkling, these fillers actually plump the skin, pushing the wrinkling out for full and younger-looking skin.  

Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

There are several types and brands of fillers out there, so consulting with your doctor on what’s best for you is key. The FDA has released a list of approved dissolvable fillers, three of which are offered by Dr. Moein at Moein Surgical Arts. Because this is another temporary solution, the risks associated with these approved fillers will be rare and temporary. Some include adverse reactions such as swelling or bruising. 

Botox Cosmetic – Anti-Aging Beverly Hills

Wrinkles are a common sign of aging, but did you know that everyday movements like smiling and chewing can lead to the development of more wrinkles? Fortunately, there are tools like Botox Cosmetic that can prevent the formation of wrinkles.

Wrinkles that appear during facial muscle contractions are called dynamic wrinkles. These are the kinds of wrinkles that typically form around the nose, mouth, forehead, and eye areas. Botox Cosmetic works by relaxing and limiting muscle contractions to preserve the skin’s smooth appearance. The treatment can take as little as fifteen minutes, and the results last for months.
