“The ideal candidate has extra eyelid skin,” says Dr. Sarmela Sunder, a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. “Oftentimes people think they need an eyelid lift but really need a brow lift. As we age, our brow starts to descend and pushes on the eyelid skin. Sometimes people confuse the two.”

“Broadly speaking, we always have to be careful of patients with autoimmune conditions and treat them with a gentler hand,” says Dr. Sarmela Sunder, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, California (and an advisor to Allergan, maker of Juvéderm products). While plenty of autoimmune patients “do fine with filler”—in small doses—there’s a sizable subset whose immune systems overreact to some, if not all, types of HA filler, she says.

“Let’s start by addressing the very large elephant in the room: Nothing, and we mean nothing, out there—be it an in-office treatment or topical cream or viral TikTok hack—will yield results that can even come close to that of an actual, surgical facelift. “There’s simply nothing out there that is going to give you surgical results,” says board-certified plastic surgeon Sarmela Sunder, MD.

“It’s important to go to someone who uses a variety of filler for a variety of places,” says Los Angeles-based board-certified plastic surgeon Sarmela Sunder M.D., estimating that she has about five or six go-tos for lip filler. “And that’s because there are so many different anatomical shapes of the lip and so many different end goals.”

This is hardly a universal truth, however. Some of the surgeons we spoke to were somewhat shocked to hear anecdotes of waning interest in the liquid nose job. In Beverly Hills, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sarmela Sunder says demand for the procedure has “been kind of insane” of late.

For Grey, she’s personally looking for products that help moisturize her dry skin and treat the adult acne that occurs around her period. The 44-year-old is also open about the added boost she gets from doctors, namely Dr. Sarmela Sunder, a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. “I recommend people go to her,” she says. “Because of my job, people think I know everything about everything, which I don’t, but I know people that know!”

Unlike Botox and fillers, thread lifts aren’t as universally discussed, so we chatted with a few plastic surgeons for everything there is to know about the trendy treatment. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sarmela Sunder has another take. “The best candidates for thread lifts are patients who are just starting to notice some collagen loss and would like to boost the structure of their skin,” she says. “It is ideal for patients who are starting to feel as if the skin is starting to lose some of its tautness, not for people who actually have skin that is visibly sagging.”

No matter whether you’re figuring out when to schedule hair color appointments, booking a teeth whitening session or two, or if you are just trying to elevate your skincare regimen, the sooner you can get a jump on things, the better.

“Botox is an injectable that changes or softens muscle movement, reducing and even preventing the formation of lines and wrinkles,” explains plastic surgeon Dr. Sarmela Sunder. “It prevents the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that all nerve fibers need in order to trigger muscle movement.”

Every second you’re alive, you’re aging. And while getting older is nothing short of a blessing, not every woman is ready for her age to show up on her face — or body. And many aren’t shy about it. “For patients who are concerned about fine lines, I always tell them that no treatment is going to be as effective or dramatic as Botox Cosmetic.” – Dr. Sarmela Sunder

Notice a “pimple” or “bug bite” that’s not going away? It’s time to see your doc. “They’re not a substitute for seeing your dermatologist once a year, but they can help you stay vigilant,” says Sarmela Sunder, M.D., a skin expert and facial plastic surgeon in Los Angeles.

Dermatologists often say that Botox—or any injectable neuromodulator that softens lines, for that matter—is just as much an art as it is a science.  

“There’s a little bit of a misunderstanding about what ‘preventative Botox’ is,” says Sarmela Sunder, MD, a double-board-certified plastic surgeon based in Los Angeles. “A lot of people think that they’ll put Botox in their forehead and lines will never develop there, but that’s not it.”

As beauty treatments go, very few have received the kind of rock star status of Botox. It enjoys the same single name recognition as the likes of Cher and Beyoncé — it needs no other introduction, and has come to stand for an entire category of excellence.
