You might be wondering, “So, what’s trendy in the world of skincare and cosmetic treatments?” But don’t worry, we are here to help you keep up to date on the latest trends and possibly inspire you to take a leap and try something new!
Skin care is like fashion, one celebrity raves about a new skincare treatment on Instagram, and everyone is running to get it. Just like celebrities made bike shorts a fashion statement, they made lip fillers a popular trend.
Fads come and go, whether it be the new anti-aging treatment or a new place on the body that everyone has decided would look a lot better after being injected with some fillers. And with every new year, we see an emergence of new skincare trends and cosmetic treatments hit the market!
- Preventative Treatments
- Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments
- Evoke and Evolve Tightening and Contouring
The term “preventive botox” has been thrown around quite a lot in the past few years. As cosmetic injectables have become mainstream, women in their 30s (and even some in their 20s) are opting for botox treatments even before a wrinkle appears.
Some dermatologists suggest that preventive Botox is an extremely effective way to prevent early signs of aging. By treating wrinkles early or before they appear, they can be prevented.
If you are unaware, Botox is a type of “neurotoxin,” which blocks the action of certain nerves. Cosmetic botox relaxes nerves to prevent, or retroactively remove, the lines created by these muscles contracting, such as those between your eyebrows and around your eyes.
In other words, by injecting Botox in these areas before fine lines form, they will not contract and stop these lines from forming in the first place.
Besides Botox, there are other popular preventative treatments, like fillers and skin lasering. These methods can proactively prevent signs of aging, by adding plump volume to the face and improving texture, respectively.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP has become one of the most popular skincare trends and anti-aging treatments on the market.
Platelet-rich plasma is a form of microneedling treatment that begins by drawing blood from the skin. The blood is placed in a centrifuge, separating the blood from the plasma. The enriched plasma is then prepared and injected into the skin or hair follicles.
The rising popularity of PRP treatment has proven the power of social media and celebrities in establishing skincare trends. Deemed the “vampire facial,” after being promoted by Kim Kardashian, the treatment went viral!
PRP treatments have become trendy because of their versatility and ability to serve a wide array of cosmetic needs. Having shown great promise in treating hair loss, PRP increases hair count, improves hair thickness, and has increased in the actual growth phase of patients’ hair cycles.
Because it is a form of microneedling, PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production and helps rejuvenate the skin, providing that sought-after youthful glow. Collagen and elastin are what help your body prevent wrinkles after all!
PRP is also often used in conjunction with neuromodulators and hyaluronic acid to reduce the size of pores and eliminate fine lines and with collagen, simulators to diminish under-eye circles.
Evoke and Evolve Tightening and Contouring
Evoke and Evolve are the perfect solution for remodeling that sagging, aging skin on your face and body.
As we previously mentioned collagen and elastin are responsible for young-looking skin and as you age your skin’s supply decreases, showing signs of aging.
Evoke and Evolve help to jumpstart the production of collagen and elastin in your face and body, transforming the appearance of your skin.
Evoke is used specifically on the face and neck to provide a more chiseled appearance and profile.
Evolve, on the other hand, is used to contour the body. However, Evolve is not for those who hope to lose weight but rather for those who want to tighten the sagging skin on their body for an overall healthier, tighter appearance.
Although Evolve cannot significantly reduce the fat cells in your body, Evolve TRIM targets these cells, helping reduce unwanted fat and cellulite.
There are many benefits to both of these treatments however, best of all, they are non-invasive, painless, and require no post-procedure downtime.
Additionally, they both work on a range of skin types so there is a solution for everyone.
