New Beauty – In the Northwest, the top treatment is a tie between Botox Cosmetic and fillers for aging and hollows, and lasers treatments for uneven skin texture.
“Patients come into my office seeking many noninvasive rejuvenation procedures for an overall refreshed yet natural appearance. We often start with Botox Cosmetic to relax the frown and crow’s-feet lines, and fillers like Juvéderm Voluma are used to lift the cheeks and replace lost volume. Once the midface is lifted, then less filler such as Juvéderm is needed for nasolabial folds and marionettes. Tear troughs are a common area of hollowness, which can be corrected with Belotero or Juvéderm Volbella. Lips can be rejuvenated with Juvéderm, Restylane or Juvéderm Volbella. Lasers are recommended for texture, pigment and pore size—the most popular being the Picosure laser, which involves very little to no downtime for the patient.” —Fresno, CA, dermatologist Kathleen Behr, MD
