Skin Care News: Beauty Bucket List for 2016

Your Beauty Bucket List

As we enter 2016, there’s a lot to think about for the upcoming year and we’re not only referring to the big election taking place in November.  For those of us battling acne or trying to maintain a youthful glow as we mark another calendar year of getting older, skin care should be a top priority for the new year. Thankfully, 2016 promises to be full of beauty breakthroughs. New cosmetic treatments, innovative skin care products, and new ideas for how to take care of your skin offer promising results for a beautiful new year. While social media will continue to play a huge role in how we perceive ourselves, beauty is still very personal. If there’s something you are not happy with–be it a double chin or too-thin lips, make a resolution to yourself to make 2016 the year you take charge and finally get your skin to exactly where you want it to be. Here, your beauty bucket list for 2016:

Beauty Bucket List: Microneedling

Laser rejuvenation is typically the go-to treatment for sun damage, wrinkles and acne scars, but microneedling offers a low-tech alternative to laser therapy and can deliver a near perfect complexion with a few sessions. “This non-surgical procedure uses tiny needles to puncture the skin and create micro-injuries,” explains Dr. Karen Hammerman. “The small wounds trigger the skin to repair itself by producing new collagen which means plumper, smoother healthier skin. It also treats pigmentation, acne scars and wrinkles.” While microneedling itself has been around for many years, some of the newer devices are designed to deliver skin soothing ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid deeper into the dermis than just a topical version of the ingredient would go.

Beauty Bucket List: Natural looking fuller lips

Make 2016 the year you finally get those natural looking larger lips you’ve been secretly pining away for. Thanks to the new lip augmenting filler Restylane Silk, lips get a more subtle looking plumper pout. Restylane Silk is made with smoother and smaller particles of hyaluronic acid, which are better suited for lip augmentation. Studies have shown that Restylane Silk injections in the lips can last up to six months and offers a smoothing of wrinkles around the lip line along with a fuller pout.

Beauty Bucket List: Kiss your double chin goodbye!

The latest skin care news is all about ways to treat the neck and double chin area without undergoing surgery. The new CoolMini for double chin removal and newly FDA-approved Kybella for double chin are non-surgical treatments for that often loathed area. The CoolMini is a smaller treatment tip from CoolSculpting specifically created to target the double chin area. By freezing the submental fat area (aka the double chin), the overlying skin is left unharmed, while the fat cells in that area are reduced. The exciting new Kybella treatment, treats the under chin area with injections of a substance called deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule that breaks down fat. Once injected into the under chin area, those fat cells are forever destroyed and cannot store fat again.
