These skincare treatments are going to be big in 2022
Great skin is a life-long quest but every year brings new opportunities and advancements to help you reach peak skin fitness. To prep you for the year ahead, Dr. Will Kirby and his clinical team at LaserAway told Life & Style Magazine about which beauty and body treatment trends are about to take off. Here are the top five aesthetic dermatological treatments for 2022:
1. “Baby” treatments
Don’t be fooled by the name, these treatments are baby in size but not in results! Mini versions of fan-favorite skin-tightening and smoothing services are about to be your secret weapon, helping target only the areas that need it most. “Thermage uses radiofrequency, which helps tighten the collagen you already have as well as boost collagen production,” says LaserAway aesthetic nurse Danica Dizon. And when Baby Thermage is coupled with Baby Botox, it packs a one-two punch, relaxing the muscles that cause creasing so the full benefits of collagen remodeling can be enjoyed.
2. Skin rejuvenation
The rising star in the laser facial category? Clear + Brilliant Touch. Clinical director of LaserAway’s Los Angeles clinics, Michelle Thompson, explains, “Clear and Brilliant Touch offers the best of both worlds, improving texture and pigment incorporated into a single “complete” treatment.” Using fractional photothermolysis to diminish unwanted sun damage and smooth skin through collagen remodeling during the same appointment, with Clear + Brilliant Touch you can save dollars and downtime.
3. Laser hair removal
If the last two years have taught us anything it’s how important our time is. And as we ease back into hybrid or traditional office schedules, we’re only going to need more of it. Cue Laser hair removal, which is about to be clutch. In fact, “there is no better time to start laser hair removal than right now!” exclaims aesthetic nurse practitioner Nicole Meath, who oversees LaserAway’s Arizona and Las Vegas clinics. Skin becomes softer and smoother with every treatment, so in addition to the time you get back, you can also leave razor burn, ingrown hairs, and stubble in quarantine too.
4. Volume enhancements
Nothing works a little volume magic quite like dermal fillers, and LaserAway’s aesthetic nurse practitioner Kandice McNeal can attest. “It has done wonders for my own appearance and self-confidence. See, as we age, we start to lose volume in our upper face,” she points out. And whether a lift in the cheeks or a fuller pout is what you’re after as you reenter the “real” world two years later, Juvéderm is the hyaluronic acid-based injectable to help.
5. Body contouring
Body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting are able to target those last stubborn fat cells that endless crunches and crash diets can’t. CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared, non-invasive and it reduces adipose tissue by 25 percent, so patients can stop going in circles at the gym, and finally take their fitness journey over the finish line. As regional clinical director of LaserAway’s North Texas locations, Chandler Ortiz says, “Whether you’re preparing for an event or just wanting to feel your best, CoolSculpting contours all the right areas!”
