Sounds crazy — right? But using Botox for hair growth may be just what you need. Hair loss is associated with increased tension in the scalp muscles, which can inhibit a nourishing blood supply from reaching our hair follicles. Botox can be utilized to release that muscle tension and re-establish proper nutrient flow to our growing hair.
There are many causes linked to hair loss in men and women, some of which are reversible and can be repaired, allowing the return of healthier hair growth and sustainability. One reversible cause of hair loss, in particular, is stress. This condition is also known as Telogen Effluvium. With this condition, you may start to see an increase in hair shedding three months after a stressful event. Stressful events on the body may include, but are not limited to:
Significant weight loss
Inadequate dietary intake
When you begin to notice stress-induced hair loss, it is essential to identify its cause. Once you identify the root cause, you can work towards a solution.
Solutions to Stress-Induced Hair Loss
Possible solutions may include:
Eating a healthy diet – the best way to do this is to track the foods you eat regularly to determine what you may be lacking.
To prevent further hair loss, it is essential to focus on whole food and a well-balanced diet (fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein).
Over-the-counter supplements – nutritional deficiencies can cause stress-induced hair loss. A health care provider can assist with blood work to see if you lack any of these nutrients (Ferritin, Vitamin D, Zinc, Vitamin B12) and recommend the addition of supplements into your daily routine if necessary.
Managing your stress – learning to manage the stress that you are currently experiencing is not only beneficial in the short term but can also help you cope with stressful situations that may arise in the future. There are many ways you can practice stress management at home, including:
Deep breathing exercises
For most individuals, the effects of stress-induced hair loss can be temporary and reversible. The sooner you can identify the cause, the sooner you can work toward a solution. While managing your stress, it is crucial to remember that it can take 1-3 months for the shedding to stop and up to a year for any hair loss to regrow after the stressor is adequately managed fully.

As 2020 draws to a close, we at Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery wanted to look back on some of our most popular articles.
Today, we will focus on three celebrities that opened up about their plastic surgery procedures and their results. This inside “behind the scenes” look lets everyone see behind the curtain as if you were in their inner circle.
[In the upcoming weeks, DCPS will publish articles on the top videos and podcasts from 2020.]
The mother of two, actress, and the New York Times bestselling author of I Like You Just the Way I Am, speaks out about her love of injectables, particularly Botox.
“I think you just kind of have to accept and embrace what’s happening to you naturally,” she said. “And, if there’s something that you can maybe lessen, cool. But you sort of have to just ride the wave. That’s the exciting part about living in this age—solutions are popping up all the time.”
The Real Housewives of New York City’s Sonja Morgan has always been transparent about the plastic surgery she’s had. Still, her announcement on Instagram that she had a lower facelift and neck lift after season 12 of The Real Housewives of New York City has stirred a surprising amount of buzz.
“I just wanted to be rid of the wrinkling on my neck and the jowls that were starting to form…”
— And now for our most popular celebrity post on Dr. Davis’ blog…
Anna Faris is an American actress, producer, comedian, podcaster, and author. She rose to prominence for her work in comedic roles, particularly the lead part of Cindy Campbell in the Scary Movie films franchise.
Faris said she never had any regrets about her decision to go through with breast augmentation. But that doesn’t mean she’s not still surprised by her decision. “I kept thinking, Am I betraying my own gender by doing this?” she said.
These three articles captivated our site’s audience and our patients. As Ru Paul says, “Here’s all the tea” about Jenny, Sonja, and Anna.
As a plastic surgery practice in New Jersey, we applaud their openness and candor about their specific situations and procedures. It’s people this them who helps our patients make better more informed decisions for their own plastic surgery future.

In our continuing series about Body Contouring and your options to kickstart your Summer Body in the colder months — let’s now discuss when Liposuction is the right treatment for you.
At Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, we typically advise a patient to consider Liposuction once diet, exercise, and the other treatment options (as previously discuss) do not achieve your desired results.
Stating facts, Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure; it is a fat reduction procedure. Many people get this fact confused, or it is misrepresented by medical professionals. Liposuction is an outpatient surgery performed under general anesthesia where fat pockets are reduced on the patient.
Dr. Steven Davis, a board-certified plastic surgeon, performs Liposuction on candidates as part of a whole treatment plan to meet the patient’s goals. Once our patient has undergone a full recovery, which usually lasts 2-4 weeks, we advise returning to your regular fitness and nutritional routines.
We believe that fitness and aesthetic goals are made in the winter months. The colder months are the perfect time to plan time for procedures, change diet and fitness habits, schedule recovery downtime (if necessary) in order to exercise the patience needed to get that body you desire.
Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery is a part of every one of our patient’s aesthetic journey. We are available to answer any and all of your questions and get your path to a new you planned. Please contact us if you have any questions, or wish to schedule a consultation with Dr. Davis.
Next up we wrap up the Body Contouring in colder months series and review all your options for that new look.
Today, it’s all about Body Contouring with FLASH Liposuction. Now that we are all on the same page about creating your summer body in the winter, we understand how CoolSculpting plays into the equation — let’s discuss Body Contouring with FLASH Liposuction.
FLASH stands for Fat Lipo Away Same Hour. (Did you notice that…same hour?) This in-office procedure gives you the option of targeting a pocket of fat on your body. Using fine straws, Dr. Davis vacuums the fat away.
Our FLASH Lipo procedure is perfect for anyone who needs a little more than CoolSculpting while sticking to a sensible diet and exercise program. FLASH gives you the win-win scenario of removing that stubborn pocket of fat with Lipo and experiencing minimal recovery and downtime.
Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery works hard to understand your body contouring goals and desires. This is why we make sure you know all your treatment options. From CoolSculpting to FLASH to Liposuction (for body contouring larger areas), we work hard to design a custom treatment and procedure plan that works specifically for you.
If you want to learn more about FLASH, CoolSculpting, or Liposuction, please contact our office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Davis.
Preview: Next time, let’s talk about when it is more appropriate to undergo a full Liposuction procedure. (And how you can combine treatments for maximum results.)
