  • Cosmetic facial procedures gaining popularity
    Advances in the understanding of how the human face ages and doctors' clinical experience with available products have helped spur growth in the use of soft-tissue filler procedures. "As a result of this new understanding, a variety of products have been developed to provide a nonsurgical way to restore a youthful facial contour," plastic surgeon Lewis Ladocsi says.

  • Health care utilization in U.S. drops, report finds
    The average number of visits to a medical provider among working-age adults dropped from 4.8 in 2001 to 3.9 in 2010, a Census Bureau report found. Most respondents described their health as either excellent or very good. "The decline in the use of medical services was widespread, taking place regardless of health status," Census Bureau's Brett O'Hara said. Despite that, the average household spent 3.1% more on medical services last year, but spending on pharmaceuticals fell 2.3%.
