The magazine New Beauty is considered by many to be a fairly authoritative publication that covers both consumer products related to aesthetics, and the doctors and treatment protocols that provide them. Each year, New Beauty presents awards for the best of the best in skin care, aesthetic therapies, and devices.
New Beauty just revealed their picks for the 2017 awards. I wanted to highlight some of their choices, which we at Maine Laser Skin Care have picked as well:
1.) Award for Best Go-To Facial for a Healthy Glow: HydraFacial MD
Many patients have described HydraFacial MD as a skin treatment that is “like a microdermabrasion and a facial in one”. As anyone who has experienced a HydraFacial at the hands of Denise Gidney knows, the skin is cleansed, exfoliated and hydrated. After the pores are cleaned out, antioxidants and peptides are infused to give your skin the glow of a flawless look.
2.) Award for Ultimate Filler to Look Years Younger: Juvederm
Juvederm is a family of hyaluronic acid injectables that act to restore volume lost over time by plumping skin back to its more youthful state. Specific varieties of Juvederm have been formulated to treat areas such as the cheeks, lips and lines around the mouth. Following a Juvederm treatment, lines on the skin will become less pronounced, and the lips will be more defined.
3.) Award for All-Star Wrinkle Eraser: Botox
It is no surprise that this award goes to Botox, which has been the standard and most popular of aesthetic medical treatments fro the past 15 years since its first introduction. As New Beauty described in presenting this award, “A few minutes is all it takes to administer [Botox], which . . . turns back the hands of time for months by temporarily freezing the muscles that lead to deep-set expression lines and wrinkles.”
4.) Award for All-Over Fat Fighter: CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting won this award for its ability to non-invasively get rid of stubborn fat pockets by freezing the fat cells and allowing the body to eliminate the frozen fat permanently. You no longer have to go under the knife to get noticeable results, and there is virtually no downtime other than the time for treatment itself.
5.) Award for Under-the-Chin Fat Eliminator: Kybella
Kybella is a revolutionary, injectable treatment that literally melts and breaks up unwanted fat that causes a double chin. Over the course of several treatment sessions, Kybella can change the appearance of your profile, allowing your neck and jawline to appear thinner, more defined, and thus younger.
It is always encouraging when treatments that I have selected for my patients win acclaim and awards after the fact. However, I do truly feel that we here at Maine Laser Skin Care are rewarded each day when we see the results of the therapies we administer.
