New Beauty Awards 2020
I always look forward to the spring and the beauty awards. The thought of combing through thousands of products and procedures in search of the holy grail is overwhelming. Each year hundreds of new product lines enter the skin care and treatment market. I applaud these editors for all the time and effort that testing all the products and procedures take. Instagram & Facebook bombard us with new advertising for products that are brand new and untested. If you click on the advertisement, you will see the product show up in your news feed for weeks.
I thought it would be helpful to highlight several New Beauty Awards with the products and procedures that Blume Skin & Body offers.
Procedures & Services
The Best Neurotoxin – Botox Cosmetic
For the past 18 years, Botox has been reducing frown lines, crows’ feet and smoothing foreheads everywhere. Botox is the most requested Neurotoxin, I believe due to its consistency. I personally can attest to Botox taking effect in 5 days and lasting up to 14 weeks for my treatment protocol. Dysport and Xeomin are also quality neurotoxins and Blume Skin & Body offers these products for our patients that prefer them.
The Best Nonsurgical Skin Tightener – Ultherapy
Ultherapy is a Cult Classic it has been an award winner for 6 years in a row. Patients looking for a neck, lower face & brow lift without going under the knife, Ultherapy is the answer. Christie Brinkley has been the spoke person for 2 years, one look at her contoured jawline and firm neck you’ll get the idea of just how effective Ultherapy’s ultrasound skin tighting works to take a decade away.

CoolTone has gained FDA-clearance for strengthening and toning muscles. Using magnetic muscle stimulation to tone the abdomen, buttocks and thighs with great results and no downtime.

The Best Filler for Laugh Lines – Restylane ReFyne
When you have smokers’ lines and haven’t smoked, Restylane ReFyne is a great choice for smoothing the lines around the mouth. Restylane ReFyne can soften them without altering your natural facial expressions. With this soft flexible filler, you will continue to look like yourself. Restylane DeFyne is also a great filler for the lines at the corners of the mouth and chin. These two products work well together to keep your expression natural.

For a lusher plumper lip, Blume Skin & Body also offers Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus that are also hyaluronic acid fillers that give a bigger lusher pout. A conversation with our excellent injectors can help you decide which product is best for you.
