When it comes to beauty in 2019, it’s all about skincare and keeping your body looking its best. Taking care of your skin and body has the most beauty benefits out of any trend, but which procedures work? Here are the year’s most popular beauty trends that are definitely worth the hype.
One of this year’s hottest beauty trends is CoolSculpting®. Claiming to have beauty benefits of “freezing your fat away,” this procedure has generated plenty of hype in the media. Utilizing cryolipolysis, a technique that freezes your fat cells, CoolSculpting® doesn’t require you to get multiple plastic surgeries or even multiple trips to the gym. Because the treatment uses a machine that works its magic on top of your skin, CoolSculpting® is an entirely non-invasive fat reduction procedure, so there’s no needles, bandages, or wounds.
There is little to no downtime so that you won’t be restricted to bed rest, and you’ll be able to go about your day usually. By targeting and freezing the fat cells in the area you choose, your results will show up to 20-25% fat reduction in the treated areas. Speaking of areas, the FDA has approved CoolSculpting® and its nine key areas in the body that people usually have the most trouble losing fat. This includes the double chin area, the abdomen, and even on your back if you have any fat there.
With this non-invasive fat reduction process, the results are practically permanent, unlike with dieting and exercising. Because fat cells shrink and expand in size depending on your eating and activity habits, they do not go away. With CoolSculpting®, however, the frozen fat cells die and are eliminated through bodily processes naturally. Instead of just temporarily losing weight everywhere in your body, lose the fat in the areas you want it most. This will help you get the figure and shape you genuinely want.
Another one of the most popular beauty trends of 2019 is Ultherapy, a laser treatment for sagging skin on the face and neck. With Ultherapy, you can have tighter, more youthful-looking skin after just one quick session, and the great news is that it doesn’t require recovery days. Ultherapy is a relatively new face tightening treatment that’s non-invasive and doesn’t require surgery, which is why it’s surrounded by hype. Through ultrasound imaging, your dermatologist can see below the skin’s surface, deep enough to give your skin the push it needs to produce more collagen and have you looking years younger. Some people notice a change immediately, but most people see the full results after two to three months.
Nonetheless, Ultherapy does work, and it can be a much better option for you if you don’t want to go under the knife. This treatment also involves only very mild levels of pain, so there’s barely any discomfort! The results are very noticeable, relatively fast, and don’t require you to be on bed rest for several days. The Ultherapy treatment can be an excellent option for you if you’re looking for the perfect procedure that makes you feel incredible without any of the hard work—beauty benefits galore.
We know—needles can be pretty scary. If you know anything about microneedling, though, you know it’s way less frightening than those huge shots you got as a kid. Minimally invasive and virtually painless, microneedling involves thousands of tiny needles pricking the top layer of the skin to boost the skin’s natural healing properties.
Although needles in your skin sound damaging, they’re great for anti-aging and healing acne scars if done correctly. By tricking your skin into thinking that it needs to heal the tiny wounds, your skin will produce more collagen and increase its cell turnover rate so that your skin feels smooth and soft. Whether its wrinkles, dark spots, fine lines, or hyperpigmentation, microneedling can work wonders for it all to give your complexion that natural, youthful glow. It’s important to note, however, that one microneedling appointment won’t give you what you’re looking for, it’s something you have to incorporate into your regular skincare routine.
With all the beauty trends that come and go over the years, choose which ones you decide to do wisely. Not all of them have beauty benefits, and some are all hype and no results. Our cosmetic dermatologists know which ones will work for you and which ones won’t, so don’t forget to have a consultation with us!
