While looking older is a life stage that everyone must endure, it doesn’t mean that you have to accept it without a fight. Popular anti-aging treatments like Botox continue to prevail, while newer treatments like Juvederm Volbella, Kybella, and microneedling are ready to be tagged in as anti-aging essentials for 2017. Learn more about what these amazing advancements in aesthetic medicine can do for you.

Lovely’s Anti-Aging Essentials for 2017

European-Favorite Juvederm Volbella, Now FDA Approved

Juvederm Volbella has been a European favorite because of its effectiveness in treating lip lines and wrinkles. Not only does the substance fill in wrinkles and lines, but since it’s made from hyaluronic acid, it also attracts and holds onto moisture. Due to this feature, Juvederm Volbella is able to last as long as a year.

Juvederm Volbella is a substance that a medical aesthetic specialist injects into your skin with a super-fine needle. To give your face a soft, natural feel, the product’s developers formed it into a super smooth gel. According to the company’s website, a study confirmed that 98 percent of those who had a Juvederm Volbella treatment received the results that they desired. It’s likely that it can do the same for you.

After assessing the product’s effectiveness and side effects, the FDA gave Juvederm Volbella official approval.

While Juvederm Volbella was primarily designed to provide lip augmentation and rejuvenation, aesthetic providers quickly saw the potential benefit for under eye rejuvenation. Many providers already use Restylane to help correct fine lines, under eye hollowness, and dark circles. Now Juvederm Volbella is offered as an alternative to Restylane, providing patients with more options in under eye rejuvenation.

Makeup-Free Jawline and Chin Contouring with Botox and Kybella

There are several forms of anti-aging essentials available for a tight and pretty jawline too. Two popular treatments to enhance the jawline are Botox and Kybella. These treatments offer makeup-free jawline and chin contouring. When Botox is injected into the masseter muscle, it can decrease the size and movement of this part of your body. The masseter muscle helps you chew food properly and affects the appearance of your face.

Kybella takes a different route than Botox does when it comes to giving your face a younger and more slender appearance. With Kybella, your aesthetic medical specialist will inject you with a substance that works to dissolve the fat that gives you a double chin. You may prefer this treatment option because it eliminates fat without surgery.

In April 2015, the FDA published its approval for Kybella. During studies, researchers determined that the product was similarly effective for women and men. To reach this determination, the research team used a placebo-based study to establish whether Kybella worked as its manufacturer claimed. Study participants received a placebo or Kybella. After testing six treatments, researchers found that the product was effective.

Microneedling: The Laser-Free Solution to Skin Tone and Texture

Microneedling may seem like the latest and greatest treatment, but it’s actually been around for a while. Known as collagen induction therapy, the treatment involves a controlled technique that makes microscopic punctures on the surface of your skin. These punctures send a message to the deep parts of your dermis, and it begins creating new collagen and elastin. Microneedling combined with a topical treatment can provide impressive results for lines, sun damage, scars, and even stretch marks.

Microneedling is one that’s growing in popularity with patients and in the media. As with many non-surgical treatments, the primary draw of the procedure are the positive results with little-to-no downtime. Patients are comfortable during treatment, and a topical anesthetic can be applied to improve comfort for patients who request it. The minor side-effects include skin redness, mild tenderness, and peeling. Patients report that it can feel like a mild sunburn for about 24 hours after treatment, but enjoy immediate results with each treatment. After a series of treatments, these results last longer with fewer touch-up treatments required to maintain results.
