Health & Fit These Are the Most Effective (Non-Surgical) Beauty Procedures, According to Dermatologists
Plastic Surgery Trends for 2018 Are Being Shaped by Social Media
Demand continues to rise for invasive and noninvasive plastic surgery procedures. Doctors weigh in on how social media will impact the industry in 2018.According to an annual review of plastic surgery trends by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), 2017 was a big year for plastic surgery procedures — and it has some major implications for 2018.
You want to look younger (join the club), but you're freaked out by the idea of undergoing invasive surgery in pursuit of a smoother, tighter complexion. Enter these five nonsurgical treatments, all of which come highly recommended by some of our dermatologist friends. (Psst…one of them keeps Christie Brinkley looking criminally good for her 64 years.)
“There is only one device on the market that is FDA-cleared to lift the brows, under the chin and neck, and that’s. It works by using tiny focused cones of ultrasound that are placed under the skin and heat our collagen. The discrete heat signal makes our collagen retwist and reform and induces new collagen production. The amazing thing about Ultherapy is that it’s noninvasive, requires no cutting or stitching and can never look ‘too much.’ It’s a great way to maintain the health of our collagen in a natural way.” - [Ed. note: 64-year-old unicorn-like beauty Christie Brinkley is a devoted fan of Ultherapy.]
Botox and Breast Augmentation Are the Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures in the U.S.
A report of most popular plastic surgery procedures in 2017 from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that Botox injections and breast augmentation reigned supreme.The art and science of plastic surgery are evolving every day, and last year was particularly big for innovation. We saw rises in nipple plastic surgery, non-surgical nose jobs, and injectables for your butt. But according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons' (ASPS) annual report on plastic surgery trends, the most popular procedures in 2017 are surprisingly old school.
“It depends upon the issue of concern. For instance, if you’re worried about skin texture or laxity, it may be recreating and adding volume to underlying structures with injectable fillers, such as, and , tightening with non-invasive energy devices such as Thermage and Ulthera, and resurfacing with both fractional non-ablative and ablative lasers such as the Fraxel Dual. I would recommend these treatments because they are less invasive, require little to no downtime, and typically require some numbing cream, not sedation.” –
“This treatment can be used to treat for dark undereye circles or stretchmarks. For dark circles, it rejuvenates the circulation, getting rid of the stagnant blood flow and inflammation that leads to circles, bags and crepe-y skin. There’s no pain, no downtime and no risk. A 15-minute session costs about $250, and we recommend about ten sessions, followed by yearly maintenance (depending on the underlying reason for dark circles).” –, author of
You Can Now Get A Non-Surgical Face Lift
No, this isn’t a joke - it’s a very big deal. What if I were to tell you that you could tighten your skin, soften your fine lines, and give your face the overall appearance of a dewy 22-year-old who's spent her life living in a bubble? Oh, and it would only take 20 minutes? And oh, there would be virtually zero side effects or downtime? You’d probably call me a liar or a witch, and honestly, both would seem correct, because this technology shouldn’t exist. And yet, thanks to the modern world and the FDA, it does now in the form of a little device called TempSure Envi.
“By our mid-30s, most of us have lost volume in our face, so I recommend patients get two to four vials of Sculptra (a type of filler), primarily in the sides of the face. This is a game changer that can significantly improve the look of your entire face by pulling things back to where they started. What’s wonderful about Sculptra is that it stimulates your own cells (fibroblasts) to build collagen, so the results are incredibly natural and last for more than two years." -
Microneedling with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
“In this treatment, a doctor or nurse draws your blood and separates your platelet rich plasma, which is full of stem cells, proteins and enzymes that regenerate your skin cells, collagen and elastin. Millions of microscopic holes are then painlessly punctured into the skin while the PRP is applied and seeps into the holes. This has a regenerative effect that gets rid of wrinkles, tightens the skin and decreases sunspots and sun damage spots. There is a little downtime, but this treatment is the biggest bang for your buck of any non-invasive procedure. You have it done once a month for three months (at $1,200 each session), followed by twice yearly appointments to maintain. It works at any age, is very low risk and produces the most natural result with very little discomfort.” –Dr. Heskett
