Plastic Surgeons Share Their Favorite In-Office Treatment Launches of the Past Few Years

Tried and true standbys can be trusted and the “next big thing” always creates some buzz, but what about those few-years-old, still semi-new offerings that have been around long enough to prove their worth? We rounded up what plastic surgeons REALLY think about the latest in-office treatments; here are the ones they say have something solid to show when it comes to results.

1/6

Kybella Craze

“In my practice, I would say injection of Kybella. When injected into the double chin area, it destroys fat cells resulting in permanent reduction of double chin. This is a great option for patients who do not want to undergo surgery and are looking for a minimally invasive option.” 

—Englewood, NJ, plastic surgeon Shwetambara Parakh, MD

The Elastin Fix

“I’m very excited about the results of microneedling with radio frequency. This one treatment–only device, which creates new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid, has exceeded my experience with radio-frequency or ultrasound therapy alone for the lower face and neck!” 

—Encinitas, CA, facial plastic surgeon Mario S. Yco, MD 


3/6

RF on the Rise

“Profound RF treatments for facial rejuvenation. This technology utilizes microneedling, combined with high-energy radio frequency. Although it is nonsurgical, there is still roughly a five-to-seven-day downtime period. We are also excited to be offering treatments for vaginal rejuvenation and improvement of stress urinary incontinence with Viveve radio-frequency treatments. Only one 30-minute session is required.” 

—Newport Beach, CA, plastic surgeon Sanjay Grover, MD

Lasers Without the Lag Time

“One of my favorite technologies in the office that didn’t exist five years ago is our skin-renewal laser. It is a nonablative, no-downtime laser that has a great effect on fine lines and wrinkles. When combined with Botox, this can be a home run for patients providing both an immediate and long-term improvement.” 

—Smithtown, NY, facial plastic surgeon James C. Marotta, MD


5/6

The Motorized Pen

“Some of the in-office treatments that have been introduced or matured over the past five years include: microneedling with a motorized pen accompanied by PRP—these treatments have been surprisingly effective at stimulating new collagen production and smoothing the skin; ultrasonic fat reduction, which is painless has no downtime, and after a series of treatments, a visible reduction in body fat is seen; and more effective cellulite treatments that consist of subcision, injection and laser therapy.”

—Glen Burnie, MD, plastic surgeon Adam N. Summers, MD


6/6

Hollywood Helper

“My patients are consistently seeking new ways to slow down the clock and prevent premature aging. We now have skin care technology to reduce fine lines and wrinkles [he points to his line’s Nassif MD Hydro-screen], improve texture using microneedling with PRP and help improve overall health with LED Lighstim technology.” 

—Beverly Hills, MD, facial plastic surgeon Paul Nassif, MD
