Trends in any industry are either here to stay, or they fade out just as soon as they came to be. In the medical aesthetics realm, patients and their providers have seen an onset of trends throughout this past year—from the “new wave” of radiofrequency microneedling (RFMN) with Sylfirm X to exosomes becoming everyone’s go-to for regenerative, post procedure care.
Since 2023 is less than a month away, we’re bringing you our top five predictions for upcoming trends in medical aesthetics!
1. Combination Treatments
Stackable procedures are the ultimate win-win for practitioners and patients; It goes without saying that performing multiple treatments in just one visit is cost effective and time saving for all parties involved. Anesthesia administration (if necessary) will only need to be done once, patients endure less downtime for more treatments, and depending on providers’ finesse, results can be beautifully and strategically enhanced.
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads combined with filler, Sylfirm X plus exosomes, LED light therapy post RF microneedling… treatment combo options are virtually endless! Top industry trailblazers are renowned for the unique combinations they come up with, like Dr. TJ Tsay, founder and owner of Ageless MD in Tustin, California:
“Miracu® threads go well with other treatment modalities including fillers, toxins, and energy-based devices. You can mix and match different Miracu® threads and even use Miracu® threads when patients have had other threads previo
2. Non-Invasive Nose Reconstruction
Non-invasive treatments of any kind, for that matter. Technological and scientific advancements in pain management and aesthetic equipment have allowed physicians to provide patients with more comfortable treatments.
Utilizing PDO threads as opposed to traditional plastic surgeries when it comes to “nose jobs” has become widely talked about, especially at the tailend of 2022. PDO thread treatments offer A) increased collagen and elastin production B) quicker recovery C) better conformation/absorption to treatment areas, and of course, D) minimally invasive treatments—all without having to go under the knife.
We mentioned that exosomes dominated the industry this year for post treatment care, and it also became the more popular choice against platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. (Check out our recent blog post for more information on this, Forget “Vampire Facials.” Try Exosomes! Considering treatment add-ons like Pro-Nox™ for pain and anxiety relief or BENEV Exosomes for enhancing recovery, we predict “punch card” memberships to be put into place in aesthetic practices for the new year. Patients can purchase a select amount of exosome add-ons, for example, to be redeemed at select times with select treatments throughout a chosen time period. In 2023, it’s going to be about more than just receiving incredible treatments and results, but also maintaining treatment results for the long haul.
4. Sylfirm X, Sylfirm X, Sylfirm X!
The Sylfirm X provides a Sylfirm X-perience that quickly made it the most requested treatment of 2022. With the ability to treat patients at either a PW or CW mode, for various skin types, and beginning treatment at anywhere from 0.3mm to 4.0mm, RFMN can now be customized per patient like never before. With the grip that Sylfirm X has maintained on the aesthetic industry this past year, we’d say it’s a no-brainer that this U.S. Patented workhorse will stay on top for the new year!
