Skincare trends from 2019 have trickled into the new decade, however, only a few months into 2020 and there are already more to add to the list! Our board-certified dermatologists and licensed estheticians offer you their expert advice on what skincare trends to expect this year.
COLLAGEN, COLLAGEN, COLLAGEN
Collagen is an essential ingredient in delaying the aging process. It is the most abundant protein in the human body, responsible for strength and structure in your bones, muscles and skin. One of the most noteable benefits of collagen is tissue regeneration.
Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that uses collagen induction therapy to address signs of aging. Collagen induction therapy is when small needles in the microneedling device comfortably create microscopic punctures in your skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This results in the formation of collagen and elastin, the two vital proteins responsible for skin structure.
Microneedling can reduce the appearance of acne scars, blemishes, pores and improve fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with even, youthful looking skin.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) are human growth factors found in your blood that help promote the healing process. The platelet-rich-plasma can be added to a microneedling treatment for increased results and a faster healing process. PRP can also be injected into the scalp to increase hair thickness and hair follicle survival.
Glycolic Acid is one of the most common alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) used in skincare. Glycolic acid is primarily used in exfoliating cleansers, toners and serums to help even skin tone and resurface the skin, and minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores. One of our most popular glycolic products is SkinCeuticals Retexturing Activator, which uses 20 percent glycolic acid to resurface and replenish your skin for a noticeably smoother complexion.
Growth Factors are natural substances made by skin cells that support the repair of damaged skin and help maintain a healthy texture. Growth factors are unique because they promote collagen and elastin growth at the cellular level, which gives your skin the building blocks it needs for optimal rejuvenation. The NeoCutis® Bio-Restorative Skin Cream is one of our top-selling growth factor products. It helps promote skin hydration, recovery and restoration for optimal skin enhancement.
Hyaluronic acid is an acid made from enzymes that bind and retain water molecules. It is a key ingredient to include in your skincare routine if you’re trying to achieve a hydrated and dewy complexion. The Belleza Private Label Restorative Moisturizer contains hyaluronic acid and other hydration-boosting ingredients which are formulated to attract, hold and distribute moisture — leaving your skin soft and glowing.
HYALURONIC ACID | RESTYLANE® & JUVEDERM®
As mentioned, hyaluronic acid is a key player in maintaining and restoring moisture. It is used in a variety cleansers, creams and serums but has also now become one of the most popular ingredients in injectable fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm®.
Hyaluronic acid dermal injections can be used to improve the following:
- Acne and facial scars
- Cheek depressions
- Crow’s feet at the corner of your eyes
- Deep smile and marionette lines at the corners of your mouth
- Frown lines between your eyebrows
- Lines across your forehead
- Lip border plumping and vertical lines on your mouth
POLYLACTIC ACID | SCULPTRA®
Polylactic acid is a synthetic dermal filler that is used in brands such as Sculptra® to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production process, producing gradual results overtime. This type of dermal filler is known as a stimulator. It yields the best results with three treatments as your body builds more collagen with each treatment.
Polylactic acid typically presents the best results on the bottom half of your face to treat the following:
- Deep folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Thin lips
- Lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
- Chin wrinkles
