Brides-to-be do plenty of things to improve their appearance before their big day. They may drop a few pounds to better fit into their wedding dresses or have Botox injections to get a more refreshed look. One trend that is quickly emerging among the soon-to-be-married set is hand surgery and injections.
Wait, what do hands have to do with weddings? Well hands can tell quite a bit about us — what we do for a living, if we're physically active and if we're engaged. In the age of Facebook, Twitter and Instagramit's hard to go a day without seeing what many people are calling an "engagement selfie." In them, ladies are showing off their ring fingers to share the good news with friends and relatives.
Like diamonds, engagement selfies last forever and many brides are taking action to make sure that their hands look as fabulous as possible.
"Social media has certainly led people to be more concerned about their appearance and how they present themselves, so if women can receive a quick procedure to make themselves feel better and younger, it's something that they are willing to do," a New York City Dermatologist told Elle magazine.
In a related article in The New York Times, Dr. Michael Edwards, president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, noted that from 2012 to 2013, there has been a 21 percent increase in the use of injectable fillers. This indicates that many more people are looking for non-invasive solutions to give their skin a more vibrant and youthful appearance.
