Top 10 Skin Care Treatments of 2021

December 29, 2021

Christmas has come to an end, and we are now officially inching towards a brand new year! 

For us, the two biggest questions we get asked each and every year are: “What were the most requested/popular treatments of the year?” And “What do we predict will be the most popular treatments for next year?” 

So, without further ado, let’s just dive into The Vancouver Laser and Skin Care Centre’s top 10 treatments of 2021, and what we think will be trending in 2022!

1) Wrinkle Relaxing Injections

No surprise here!

This incredible anti-aging treatment effectively smooths frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, bunny lines, and lip lines. It can also be used for jaw slimming, and to fix a gummy smile and dimpled chin!

While wrinkle injections are always a popular choice for people who want to maintain or restore a youthful appearance, I believe that trust is one of the biggest factors when it comes to why and how it can become so popular for any medical aesthetic clinic. This is why we always do our very best to make sure that our patients feel comfortable during their appointment and leave satisfied with the results!

2) Dermal Filler

This treatment is excellent for restoring and adding volume! With precise placements, we can fill volume deficiencies, contour cheek bones, fill thinning lips, minimize under eye hollows (tear troughs), and fix the appearance of deep facial lines and folds. 

We are dedicated to excellent results and are committed to helping patients achieve the transformation they desire!

3) HydraFacial

This facial is perfect for dehydrated and congested skin, and we love that there are some patients who religiously request it no matter the time of year! 

The HydraFacial is a luxurious facial treatment that deep cleanses the skin, exfoliates dead cells, extracts dirt and bacteria from the pores, and infuses moisture, vitamins, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid into the skin!  

4) Post Care – Glass Therapy

Even if you are not a k-beauty enthusiast, we guarantee that you’ve heard of the phenomenon known as “Glass Skin”!

Our Glass Therapy facial helps the function of your skin externally by providing essential hydrating ingredients to your skin cells to boost the skin barrier function, calm inflammation, and lock in hydration. This treatment also reduces redness and leaves your skin looking radiant and revitalized! 

Achieving Glass Skin has never been so easy!

5) Laser Hair Removal

We expected this! After all, it was our very own Dr. Braun who brought Laser Hair Removal to Vancouver in 1996, and ever since then we have become known as the “go to” clinic for laser hair removal for men and women!

LHR offers an average hair reduction rate of 80% or more, meaning that with repeated sessions you can toss your razor aside!

6) BBL (Face)

This one is a personal favourite of mine.

Laser facial treatments target imperfections at their core, and are most effective because of their controlled accuracy in targeting deep layers below the skin’s surface. Also, as compared to chemical peels or microdermabrasion, laser treatments deliver longer lasting results!

Research has shown that patients who have had BBL™ can reduce and delay the long term signs of skin aging and can already notice brighter looking skin 1-2 weeks after their first treatment.

However for the very best results, in terms of pigmentation elimination, we recommend coming in for 3 sessions at the minimum.

7) Coolsculpting

We all want to look our best, and to feel comfortable and confident!

CoolSculpting targets stubborn lumps and bumps that have been resistant to diet and exercise. It’s a non-invasive, non-surgical, and completely permanent way to remove unwanted fat – forever!

8) Sylfirm X (Face)

This dual wave radio frequency microneedling treatment improves skin laxity, texture, tone, and the appearance of scars. 

Sylfirm X is an alternative to Lutronic Infini, and offers intensified results with a more comfortable experience!

9) Thermage (Face)

Thermage uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep tissue which generates new collagen and elastin without any downtime. Unlike a facelift, Thermage treatments not only tighten the skin, but also address other common signs of aging such as mild laxity and fine wrinkles on the face and neck.

With the deep heating technology, Thermage CPT renews natural collagen to produce smoother, younger, natural looking results. The entire process is simple and can take up to three hours. It is a very safe procedure with little to no downtime.

10) Picoway (Face)

What do we want? Gorgeous skin! When do we want it? Now!

Another laser skin rejuvenation treatment, the PicoWay® uses one of the most powerful lasers in the world and is a powerful yet gentle way to address unwanted pigmentation, acne scars, and fine lines and wrinkles! The photoacoustic energy generated shatters pigmented particles into tiny fragments without burning or damaging the skin. The body’s natural healing process expels the fragmented particles and encourages the production of fresh, new collagen and elastin. 

Our Predictions for 2022….

If you’ve been keeping up with the news you know that the current Covid19 variant called “Omicron” is sweeping the globe. So, what will this mean for 2022?

I am guessing that we are going to see some stricter restrictions put in place before the spring hits (to ensure that we have all had our booster vaccine by summer). This means being diligent with wearing masks in crowded areas, and limiting the number of people at big events and social gatherings (I know, it’s going to be hard for a couple months)! So, my prediction is that there will be a huge focus on optimizing wellness in the new year.

Complete wellness is a combination of physical and mental stability. So, I predict that we will see a rise in popularity for IV Therapy to help support our body’s immune system and give ourselves a little boost of energy to help tackle the day (go ahead and go for a hike in White Cliff Park or head out for a long walk around Stanley Park – outdoor activities are always a good option!).

I also predict that we will see a rise in popularity for Clear Glow. This laser facial treatment helps to reduce and treat existing acne and give your skin a gorgeous glow! Masks are mandatory but can also tend to proliferate bacteria and irritate our skin (we know how sweaty it can get under the mask). Since a big part of protecting your mental health is feeling confident in your skin, Clear Glow is a fantastic option for anyone who is feeling less than optimal once they reach home and remove their mask.

Happy New Year from The Vancouver Laser and Skin Care Centre!

We hope that 2022 brings you only the very best of everything.

Thank you for all your support and love in 2021, and we can’t wait to help you work towards achieving your skin goals for the new year!
