Botox for Bone Density?

Botox by New York Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia of MAS | 917-703-7069

Researchers at Yale University had a very interesting question that they decided to test recently… Does the quality of your skin have anything to do with the quality of your bones?

If you think about it, it does make sense that your skin and bones may have something to do with one another. The chemical building blocks, such as collagen, that make up many of the tissues in your body are quite similar, and those building blocks deteriorate as we age. If collagen breaks down at an early age in your skin, it is only natural that it would break down in your bones as well.

The research team studied 114 women and found that skin quality is in fact related to bone “quality”. Women who had more wrinkles, and deeper wrinkles, were also found to have less bone density than women with more resilient, better “quality”, skin. Their conclusion was that wrinkles may be a red flag for decreasing bone density, and a reminder to take good care of your bones (Calcium + Vitamin D supplements, exercise, regular bone density scans).

The new question arising as a result of this study is… “Since Botox fixes wrinkles, will it fix your bones too?”. Unfortunately, the answer is no 😩

Botox doesn’t change your skin’s chemical structure or it’s level of collagen production (both of these things are determined by your genetics). Botox simply relaxes the muscles the pull on your skin and thereby softens the appearance of existing lines, and prevents new lines from forming. Having less wrinkles because of Botox isn’t the same thing as having less wrinkles because your skin was strong and wrinkle-resistant to begin with.

The bottom line here is that if you have great skin, chances are that you have great bones too. And just as people with great skin should still consider Botox treatments to keep wrinkles at bay, people with good bone density should keep up with their nutrition and exercise regimens to make sure they don’t get “wrinkles” in their bones.

Lindsanity Lohan is finally going to get punished for being such a hot mess!

And as an added bonus, we’ll get a break from her fishy looking lip injections for 90 days. Hopefully most of her Juvederm will have dissolved by then and we won’t have to see the trout pout anymore 🙂

Lindsanity definitely had a thin upper lip before she got them injected, so she was a reasonable candidate for lip augmentation with fillers like Juvederm. The person who injected her didn’t follow the rules for great looking lips though…

Did Lip Injections Cost Mia Lee Her Job?

Mia Lee was a famous Los Angeles TV personality before she suddenly fell off the face of the earth! She hasn’t been seen on TV for over a year now, and we’re all wondering why?

Could it be because she got awful lip injections? Or maybe even permanent lip implants?

We think so, but we’re hoping, for her sake, that she got injected with one of the temporary fillers like Juvederm or Restylane. If not, it’s going to be a very long time before we see her again. Silicone injections and lip implants can only be reversed with more surgery, and the more surgery Mia has, the longer she’s going to be out of work.  Let’s hope she was smart and got the temporary injections… ask your favorite plastic surgeon for more details!
