Dr. Clinton’s 5 Emerging Trends for 2020
This past year has been one of pivotal changes for Timeless Skin Solutions as we celebrated 15 years of providing exceptional aesthetic medicine, welcomed new staff and expanded our treatment offerings. Our work in 2019 has prepared us for a very busy and successful 2020 … and we can’t wait!
As we have brought on our new team members, we have taken them through our comprehensive training program. Because training is vital to core mission of Timeless Skin Solutions, we also provide intensive continuing education for our entire staff that is unique to Timeless. Doing so ensures that we are knowledgeable on the advances in technology, yet reminded of the consistent results provided by some of the early technology in the field.
Advances in technology, along with an increased understanding of the body have added to what we already know to be effective in aesthetic medicine, and lets us do so much more. At Timeless Skin Solutions, we will continue to use our knowledge of and passion for medicine, science, and technology to provide outstanding results to our patients. The coming year promises to be an exciting year at Timeless, and Dr. Clinton is already looking ahead to and sees five trends emerging for 2020.
Filler – Timeless is one of the few providers to specialize exclusively in non-surgical techniques to remove lines and wrinkles, and due to our extensive training we know that where and how we put filler has changed over time. Anatomists have broken down the structure of the face and body, which allows us to better understand the muscle layers and fat pads, in addition to how the skin lies on top of them.
As a result, we are able to be very specific in the placement of filler, and tailor the use to the individual needs of each patient. From replacing age-related volume loss to correcting a scar or natural imperfection or tweaking the emotional look of your face to more closely represent who you are, fillers can help. We can do any of these things, the way that we go about doing them have really been perfected over time.
Botox – Originally used in the 1980s to treat muscular disorders of the eye, it was quickly noted that wrinkles around the eye were also disappearing, thus Botox for cosmetic purposes began.While Botox and other neurotoxins first began with the ability to remove the “11s” between your eyes, it can do so much more now.
From the top of your head to the tips of your toes, this group of medicines can address a range of issues. For instance, we are able to effect change and decrease motion around scars regardless of where they are on your body, which helps to keep them at the surface of the skin and easier to eliminate once healed. Botox can also treat other areas that you likely never even considered a possibility, or even as a preventative measure to keep those lines and wrinkles at bay for a little longer.
Lasers – Laser technology has become increasingly advanced, allowing us to offer precise and targeted treatment options with a variety of devices with adjustable wave lengths. With lasers and other energy-based devices, we have been able to achieve remarkable results in the evening of skin color and tone, and reducing lines and wrinkles.
New technology and knowledge of the body, however, are now allowing us to reduce fat and even stimulate muscles to create a gentle toning and curviness that may be lost with age or weight gain. CoolSculpting is a fat-freezing technology that treats visible fat bulges around the face and body. Alternatively, truSculpt Flex is a muscle stimulator device that can shape areas of your body, including abs, butt and thighs, and even arms and calves. For those who live a healthy lifestyle but are unable to achieve their optimal results in the gym, these new treatments can be just the boost they need.
Skincare – Skincare has has become significantly more refined, targeting not just for the issues that you have but for the lifestyle that you lead. And while skincare typically is seen as a way to correct issues, it is now able to prevent issues from even starting. The benefits of healthy skin care habits include:
- Correct uneven skin tone
- Retain skin’s youthful firmness longer
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Keep complexion looking brighter and younger
- Avoid dry, leathery skin
- Reduce skin cancer risk
Recognizing how your lifestyle is impacting your skin and understanding which skincare products can mitigate those impacts can significantly impact your skin’s health and look.
Regenerative Medicine – Particularly helpful in the areas of hair loss and post-menopausal changes, regenerative medicine utilizes all facets of scientific technology to repair damaged tissue. This rapidly expanding field can help you get back to where you used to be. The “Vampire Facelift”, in which the body’s own wound healing and regenerative growth factors are injected to improve skin texture and address age-related changes to the face, is one of the earliest regenerative treatments, but the field is seen as the future of medicine. These treatments continue to evolve and are now being used on various areas of the body for very targeted purposes.
These trends indicate that what was old is new – and improved! – again. So now is the time to schedule a new consultation to see how these advancements in even some of our most tried and true treatments and products can be used to address your concerns and achieve your goals. There is much more that we are able to do now, to help you uncover a Timeless you.
