Summary: Non surgical facial procedures in 2020 look like they’re poised to make a big impact. It’s hard to predict precisely which procedure will be at the top of the heap; but it’s easier to talk about the procedures that are likely to be popular (even if they aren’t so likely to be the very top procedure of the year).
The Most Popular Non Surgical Facial Procedures in 2020
What will the most popular non surgical facial procedures be in 2020? That’s a difficult question to answer, as plastic and cosmetic surgery trends are always difficult to predict. That said, we are fairly confident that certain procedures will become or remain in high demand throughout 2020. What we’re less sure of is which of those non surgical facial procedures will be the most popular in 2020.
If you’re looking for a facial procedure in 2020 (or later), it’s likely because you have some signs of aging that you’d like to address. The face is one of the first places where we tend to notice those signs of aging. These facial procedures, then, are designed to help you feel younger longer. If you’re curious about what these procedures can do for you, your best bet is to get individualized advice from your cosmetic or plastic surgeon,
Top 2020 Facial Procedure #1: Botox
We don’t expect Botox to go anywhere. Year after year, Botox is easily the single most popular plastic or cosmetic surgery procedure on the planet. There are literally millions of people every year who undergo injections–millions! So it seems likely that this success will continue into 2020–and there are good reasons for that.
Botox, and neuromodulators like it, are the best way to treat certain muscle-related wrinkles (such as frown lines, crows feet, and the like). Botox is also temporary, so the results will typically last anywhere between four and six months (this means you’ll have to undergo regular maintenance injections if you want to keep your look). And, of course, wrinkles and lines are not the only reason you might seek out Botox injections–it’s also used to treat migraines, TMJ, or other issues.
So there are a multitude of reasons that Botox is (and will remain) quite popular.
Top 2020 Facial Procedure #2: Kybella
Kybella made a big splash when it debuted a couple of years ago. Since then, the procedure has quietly been growing. That’s in large part not due to Kybella’s marketing (although, as always, these products do great marketing). But rather it’s because Kybella addresses a specific and real need–and it does so effectively.
That Kybella (and other injectables like it) are still the only effective injectable option for eliminating unwanted fat also helps explain why they are so popular.
That’s why Kybella is definitely on our list of top procedures for 2020. If you want to eliminate a double chin but you have no interest in surgery or something like Coolsculpting, then Kybella is definitely your procedure of choice. That the results are permanent is certainly a bonus to most patients.
Top 2020 Facial Procedure #3: HydraFacial
The third procedure we’re going to put on our 2020 watchlist is called HydraFacial. This is a lot like a standard facial peel, designed to clean, clear, and rejuvenate the skin. But instead of using typical abrasive strategies, HydraFacial uses a fluid based approach. This means your skin ends up feeling, well, good.
That’s a big change for facial peels–which used to leave your skin feeling rough and dry. With HydraFacial, your skin feels almost like it’s moisturized.
And you still get the benefits of a facial peel. HydraFacial can remove tiny lines and wrinkles, as well as help treat age spots or acne scars. Essentially, HydraFacial can help your skin look and feel healthier. And that can be a significant appeal to a wide variety of patients.
No one can say for certain which procedures will be the top ones in 2020. But we are confident that these three non surgical facial procedures will be popular in 2020.
