With the continuous growth of social media influencers boasting about the next best product, consumers are constantly on the hunt for the latest trends. From clothes and make-up to cosmetic treatments, staying on top of the latest and greatest has become a way of life.
According to Mindy Seiver, R.N., an aesthetic nurse injector at Body by Fisher in Feasterville, the trends for 2018 are constantly evolving, and now becoming even more popular amongst younger cohorts.
“We have been seeing the younger generations come in to have preventative treatments…long before the first wrinkle even happens,” said Sever, who performs many of the services for Body by Fisher. “It lends to the younger group that are taking selfies all the time and are concerned about their appearance.”
Both Seiver and Dr. Jon Fisher say most of their clients are looking for skin rejuvenation treatments, and one of the most innovative ways is with the latest Erbium ERA Laser, which improves tone and texture while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It can be used to treat problems such as large pores, age spots, as well as precancerous cells such as actinic keratosis and benign lesions.
Though new to the offices of Body by Fisher, the Erbium ERA Laser is in such high demand due to the great results. The laser treatments also require only three appointments—one per month over the course of three months—providing customers with minimal downtime and virtually no discomfort.
“The advantage of the Erbium ERA Laser is that it can pinpoint the damaged area without harming the healthy tissue surrounding it,” Fisher explained. “Older lasers couldn’t do this, but we can pinpoint directly what we’re working on.”
Additional preventative treatments are also surging in popularity, including Botox Cosmetic, dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and Pelleve skin tightening. Seiver says the demand for Botox is growing every year, and is now FDA approved to treat a variety of health concerns, in addition to wrinkles and perspiration.
Microdermabrasion has also been around for years, but Fisher says it is still popular for those looking to rejuvenate their skin. Seiver adds that a lot of customers choose to add a chemical peel package when they sign up for microdermabrasion, which can enhance their treatment to help with skin discoloration and sun damage.
Regardless of what treatments clients choose, Seiver says it’s best to address skin concerns sooner rather than later, and reminds people to care for the skin properly by hydrating and moisturizing all year round, as well as applying sunblock.
