Twenty-seventeen was another year of rapid growth and exciting new developments with non-surgical aesthetic treatments. The popularity of non-surgical treatments to rejuvenate, sculpt, and tighten are more popular than ever, and the stigma associated with cosmetic treatments and plastic surgery is fading away. But is it all hype, or are these non-surgical cosmetic treatments the real deal? Let’s examine the Best of 2017 beauty treatments seen in the media and here in our Beverly Hills medical spa.
What’s hot and what’s not? Our Best of 2017 list will show you more than what was popular; we’ll show you the FDA-approved non-surgical treatments that actually work. At the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, our medical aesthetic specialists have provided hundreds of face and body treatments, contoured dozens of bodies and helped people like you feel more confident about their appearance. Here’s our Top 10 list of the Best of 2017 non-surgical cosmetic treatments in Beverly Hills, CA.
You can’t check your Instagram feed without hundreds of plump lips staring back at you. That’s because one of the #1 procedures in California is lip augmentation. Women (and even men) of all ages are opting for fuller, more youthful-looking lips with the help of hyaluronic acid fillers that increase volume, improve symmetry, and reduce the signs of aging. The most commonly used fillers here at Lasky Aesthetics include Juvederm Ultra , Restylane-L, Juvederm Volbella, and Restylane Silk. Volbella and Silk were made specifically for lip enhancement and to diminish the appearance of vertical lip lines, or smoker’s lines, while Ultra and Restylane can be also be used in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines (also known as laugh or smile lines) around the nose and mouth to reduce the appearance of aging.
Non-surgical liposuction? Cellulite treatments that actually work? Skin tightening without a surgical body lift? If it all sounds too good to be true, go ahead and pinch yourself, because it’s all real. Coolsculpting, Cellutone, Exilis Ultra, and other body sculpting methods made it to our best of 2017 list. These procedures give you the gorgeous body shape that you have always wanted without forcing you to undergo plastic surgery. While CoolSculpting freezes your fat, Cellutone improves your fat reduction results while breaking up cellulite beneath the skin. Both treatments can be used almost anywhere on the body to sculpt the body for summer.
This laser-based treatment makes it to our best of 2017 list as well as to the list of most popular celebrity skin treatments. Christie Brinkley, Courteney Cox, and Drew Barrymore are just some of the celebrities who have raved about Clear+Brilliant amazing results with no downtime. The Clear+Brilliant laser produces microscopic damage in the topmost layer of your skin, jump-starting your body’s own healing process. As the top layer of skin is removed, healthy, glowing skin is revealed beneath the surface. This treatment is a great choice if you have signs of aging on your skin, including fine lines and wrinkles, as well as if you suffer from uneven skin tone.
Anyone making a Best of 2017 list can’t ignore the popularity of microneedling treatments. Microneedling is so popular because it targets and corrects many different skin concerns, including hyperpigmentation, scars, and fine lines. It stimulates collagen growth beneath the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing processes to diminish imperfections in the treatment area. When combined with your own PRP (platelet rich plasma), the results are even more phenomenal. Don’t let the “needle” part of this treatment fool you. With a topical numbing cream, the treatment is very tolerable, and with the help of our Oxygenetix foundation, you can cover post-treatment facial redness and promote healing.
Cheek implants aren’t one of the best of 2017 treatments, but cheek fillers are definitely one of the top 10 procedures requested by patients of all ages. Whether you always wanted fuller cheek or you’ve noticed your cheek volume diminishing over time, fillers can help restore lost volume with lasting results. Voluma and Restylane Lyft are both hyaluronic acid fillers that provide immediate fullness that improves and lasts for 1-2 years. Other hyaluronic acid fillers also work in the cheek area with varying results depending on your unique needs. Sculptra is also an excellent cheek filler with amazing benefits for overall facial rejuvenation. It’s primary goal: stimulating collagen growth for long-term, natural-looking facial fullness and rejuvenation.
Moms and menopausal women alike understand that pregnancy, childbirth, hormonal changes, and age all affect the condition of vaginal tissue and structure. While surgical procedures like vaginoplasty and labiaplasty have been the only solution for many years, now women can benefit from a series of non-surgical procedures to improve internal and external vaginal tissue health. At Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we use ThermiVa, a radiofrequency device that tightens internal and external tissue to improve sexual health. ThermiVa results for everyday women include increased vaginal tone, improved hydration in your vaginal tissues, and even enhanced sexual sensations. Many of our patients have even commented on the improved urinary retention they notice following a series of ThermiVa treatments. While most women are quiet about receiving this treatment, some celebrities have been very outspoken and we receive many requests for this procedure from patients. That’s why we’re calling it one of our Best of 2017 procedures in Beverly Hills.
Do not let the name “HydraFacial” confuse you. While it is a great way to improve moisture retention if you have very dry skin, this best of 2017 treatment can be used on nearly any skin type to decrease signs of aging, improve skin tone, exfoliate dead skin, cleanse pores, and target a variety of specific skin concerns. As seen on EXTRA with our aesthetician Molly Lucio, the HydraFacial uses a unique five-step process to clean, exfoliate, hydrate and protect your facial skin. In the first step, your skin is gently exfoliated with water and a special serum in a process known as hydradermabrasion. Glycolic acid is then used to clean out and exfoliate your pores. Next, we apply a suction instrument to your skin to clear up acne, blemishes and dirt. Then, an individualized serum is applied to hydrate and nourish your skin. Finally, we send you home with Daily Essential products to continue the great results of your HydraFacial. This best of 2017 treatment can be used successfully on dry, aging, hyperpigmented or congested skin. It is also an excellent remedy for oily skin & acne.
Gone are the days when you need a surgical neck lift to get rid of sagging skin, deep lines and wrinkles or unwanted fat under your chin. We have some amazing options on our best of 2017 treatment list to tone and tighten the neck skin, target-treat a double chin and lift the underlying tissues. Ultherapy and similar skin tightening procedures can help lift and tighten loose skin. A precise BOTOX treatment into the neck bands can improve tone in the neck muscles, tightening up the tissues and giving you the temporary look of a neck lift. Kybella has also been placed on our best of 2017 list because of its remarkable ability to target the fat in your double chin. This injectable option dissolves excessive fat in the region and allows fat cells to exit the body naturally. CoolSculpting for double chin fat (CoolMini) can also freeze unwanted fat beneath the chin, and dermal fillers can fill in horizontal “tech neck” lines that plague millennials. The options are endless with neck rejuvenation.
Hair grafts, plugs, and transplants? No thank you! If you live with baldness or have noticed thinning hair, you can benefit from our all-natural PRP Hair Restoration. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is extracted from your own blood. Therefore, you will not experience any negative or allergic reactions to the substance. Within the PRP is a rich amount of growth factors and proteins that give you improved growth within your scalp. With PRP injections, your hair follicles will be stimulated to create new hair or to strengthen the hair that remains. With our non-surgical hair restoration plan, you can stop the embarrassment you feel from bald spots or from limp, thin ponytails. Your hair will grow in lush and full without the need for incisions, anesthesia or excessive recovery time. The results speak for themselves, which is why this non-surgical treatment truly is one of the best of 2017.
