New Beauty Awards 2021
Spring is the season of rebirth and the award season. Of course, the testing process during 2020 wasn’t the typical testing committees debating over 10,000 submissions. This year all research and debate to choose the 280 winners was done virtually. I can image that the panel was hyper-critical of their own image on the zoom meetings. The experts scrutinized thousands of products and procedures that deliver on their claims and solve our biggest beauty requests. This year more than ever we deserve to look and feel like the best versions of ourselves.
Each year hundreds of new product lines enter the skin care and treatment market. Instagram & Facebook bombard us with new advertising for products that are brand new and untested. Tik Tok has also entered the fray of so-called experts telling its viewers to use strange and unusual homemade remedies to cure all your beauty woes. Unfortunately, once 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 the 11th Annual Beauty Awards from New Beauty Magazine, Spring-Summer 2021, with the products and procedures that Blume Skin & Body offers.
Procedures & Services
The Best Neurotoxin – Botox Cosmetic
For the past 19 years, Botox has been reducing frown lines, crow’s feet and smoothing foreheads everywhere. Botox is the most requested Neurotoxin, due to its consistency. Xeomin is also a quality neurotoxin that Blume Skin & Body offers for our patients that are looking for a uniquely purified option that Gwyneth Paltrow prefers.
The Best Nonsurgical Skin Tightener – Ultherapy
Ultherapy is a Cult Classic and it has been an award winner for 7 years in a row. Patients looking for a neck, lower face & brow lift without going under the knife, Ultherapy is the answer. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to stimulate new collagen and tighten lax and wrinkled skin on the neck, chin, brow and décolleté without the need for surgery or downtime. Christie Brinkley has been a past spokesperson with many other celebrities admitting and recommending Ultherapy . The staff at Blume Skin & Body loves the Ultherapy procedure, it is also a great preventative treatment for the 30 -40-year-old age group looking for a countered jawline and collagen banking. For the 50+ age group Ultherapy ultrasound skin tightening works to take a decade away.
The Best Noninvasive Fat Reducer – CoolSculpting
This noninvasive fat-fighter treatment has been the gold standard and FDA cleared for over 10 years; Blume Skin & Body has had CoolSculpting for 9 years. CoolSculpting freezes away unwanted fat cells practically everywhere on the body. The fat cells start to leave the body at 3 weeks may take 12 weeks to see your final results, but those fat cells are gone for good.
The Best Filler for Lip Lines – Juvederm Volbella
When you have smokers’ lines or your favorite lipstick bleeds into those tiny lines around your mouth, Juvederm Volbella is a great choice for smoothing those annoying lines. Juvederm Volbella can soften them without altering your natural facial expressions. This facial filler uses hyaluronic acid to instantly smooth unwanted grooves for a natural smooth look. Volbella is also a great lip filler for those patients looking for natural smooth lips without the duck look.
The Best Filler for Laugh Lines– Juvederm
Blume Skin & Body also offers Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma and Juvederm Vollure that are hyaluronic acid fillers that can soften deep nasal folds, give volume restoration, provide a subtle lift or enhance the jaw line and chin. A conversation with our excellent injectors can help you decide which product is best for you.
The Best Filler for Cheek Enhancement – Juvederm Voluma
The longest lasting and the first filler specifically developed for the cheek area, Juvederm Voluma thick and dense hyaluronic acid gel plumps and adds volume. If you weren’t genetically blessed with high cheek bones or your cheeks have deflated due to aging, Juvederm Voluma is the answer. Juvederm Voluma results can last up to two years.
The Best Filler for Hand Rejuvenation – Radiesse
To restore volume loss and smooth the skin on hands, Radiesse, a collagen stimulator is the best. Radiesse also makes the veins and crepiness less visible while boosting collagen over time. Blume Skin & Body also likes Radiesse along the jaw line to improve your profile.
The Best Scalp Treatment– HydraFacial Keravive
Combine the relaxing experience of a scalp massage with the results of a med-spa treatment you get with HydraFacial Keravive. The treatment utilizes the HydraFacial signature three-step method to cleanse and unclog follicles and infuse Keravive protein serum. It is suggested to combine the scalp treatment with the famous skin treatment. HydraFacial is a customizable treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts and hydrates. In a short 30-minute treatment your pores are deep cleaned while skin is flooded with hydration. HydraFacial is like you monthly car wash to keep your skin healthy and youthful. At Blume Skin & Body your aesthetician can add Epidermal Leveling to further your treatment.
