2020 Skincare Trend: Botox Plus
The forehead-freezing treatment Botox certainly isn't new (the Allergan-owned company just celebrated its 30-year anniversary on the market, in fact), but you can expect something new in the market of neurotoxins. "On the horizon are technical advancements of neuromodulators that we're calling 'Super Botox,' which will have a faster onset of action and last longer," said dermatologist and founder of Spring Street Dermatology Sapna Palep, MD. "They will also have more flexibility to achieve a more natural look." Dr. Linkner agreed that we'll be seeing plenty of "Super Botox" in the new year, adding: "More and more, I'm seeing people who don't respond or metabolize the current toxin options faster, and rest assured this new product should correct those issues."
New injection methods are also going to be utilized more frequently in 2020, especially in trickier-to-treat areas like the chest. "I'm excited about using micro or mini Botox/neurotoxin injections on chest wrinkles in combination with microneedling and dilute filler injections like Radiesse," said dermatologist Brenda Dintiman, MD. "This can miraculously rejuvenate the sun-damaged skin and sleep lines on the chest."
