Wrinkle erasing for starters
The Wall Street Journal    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Maybe it's the laugh lines that don't go away when you stop laughing, or the furrows in the brow even when you aren't frowning. Or perhaps it's the brown spots and rough patches on your cheeks, from years of too much sun worship. For aging faces, there comes a time when skin creams and a good night's sleep aren't enough to keep you looking as young as you like. People have various reasons for turning back the clock on their appearance, from feeling better about themselves to staying more competitive in a youth-oriented workplace. But face-lifts and other plastic surgery can be a turn-off for many people, either because of their high cost, lengthy recovery times or risks of complications. Now, a widening array of minimally invasive treatments are making facial work more accessible to many people, and becoming part of their regular upkeep. Injections of botulinum toxin type A—better known by the brand name Botox—are still the most popular procedure for smoothing wrinkles, especially in the forehead and brow. Newer dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane can plump up lips and smile lines. More

"Computer face," it turns out, is just the most recent of many slang terms on a long list of not-so-pretty descriptions of our body's imperfections. More
