2016 was the year of the “Selfie Surgery”, but what’s next in the world of aesthetics? As we approach the New Year, Plastic Surgeon and Founder of The Few Institute, Dr. Julius Few, takes out his crystal ball to predict the beauty treatments of 2017.
Here’s what Dr. Few predicts will be in demand next year:
- Cold + Heat = Killer Body Combo - When diet and exercise aren’t enough….women love the body slimming results they get from CoolSculpting and Venus Freeze, which painlessly freeze fat and remove unwanted bulges from the arms, legs, tummy, flanks and bra area. In a recent study, Dr. Few found that freezing the unwanted fat, then heating up the skin with radiofrequency technology leads to less fat without loose skin.
- Non-Surgical Facelift – Yes, it’s real! Aging backwards (without surgery) just became a reality. Silhouette InstaLift is an effective non-invasive technology that completely redefines the face in just 30 minutes, restoring volume and reducing wrinkles with no downtime. Dr. Few was first in the Midwest to offer it and is celebrated globally for training other MDs.
- Combination Treatments – Patients can now tackle wrinkles, volume loss and sagging in one visit. By "stacking" (aka layering) innovative peels, injectables, laser treatments, ultrasound technology and advanced skincare, this multiple treatment therapy can be delivered in one sitting to generate an optimal outcome with minimal recovery time.
- New Fillers on the Horizon – Restylane Refyneand Restylane Defyne were recently FDA-approved for the treatment of laugh lines. These next-generation dermal fillers are designed to help smooth smile (aka “marionette”) lines with a natural result.
