Retinol will continue to be a gold standard ingredient in 2021, thanks to its many benefits. Using a retinol twice a week can increase collagen production, promote cellular turnover, help treat acne, unclog pores, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin texture and tone.
While it's best to start using retinol as a preventative treatment in your 20s, many people are afraid to try retinol for the first time due to possible skin irritation. There are gentler medical grade alternatives that bypass the top layer of the skin and activate below the skins surface, therefore causing no superficial irritation. A gentler retinol allows for more frequency of use and no downtime.
Every year we've seen cosmetic procedures and skin-care treatments become more streamlined as patients seek out several smaller treatments for prevention rather than one big surgical procedure. This reduces downtime and yields more natural results. Patients are also becoming savvy with prevention and starting early, therefore delaying more aggressive treatments long term.
Liquid facelift is a term becoming more and more popular. Using a combination of Botox, fillers and non invasive lasers is the latest advancement in rejuvenating the face. Having to undergo a surgical procedure is slowly becoming a thing of the past, if you start early with preventive treatments.
Liquid Lifts can restore lost volume, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, redefine the jawline, cheeks, and chin, and lift sagging brows. This treatment is also fully customizable based on the unique needs of each individual face.
