Best Noninvasive Fat Eliminator
An easy way to kick stubborn bulges of fat to the curb, noninvasive—and six-time award-winner—CoolSculpting freezes away fat cells for a slimmer silhouette in as little as one month.
“In our fast-paced world, many patients don’t have time to recover from liposuction or they’re afraid of the idea of surgery. When presented with CoolSculpting, many patients say, where do I sign up?”—New Jersey plastic surgeon Shwetambara Parakh, MD
Best Wrinkle-Erasing Injectable
Tiny injections of Botox Cosmetic in the forehead, crow’s-feet or between the brows can make a world of difference in the face as a whole, smoothing away stubborn expression lines for up to six months.
“I love Botox! It’s a great way to smooth wrinkles, refresh the face and elevate the eyebrows. The results that can be achieved with this product in the hands of expert injectors are spectacular.” —New York dermatologist Marina Peredo, MD
Best Filler For Plumper Lips
Juvéderm Volbella, a hyaluronic acid filler, can not only plump lips to a larger, but still natural-looking, size, but also soften lines around the lips that can age the face and cause lipstick to bleed.
“Juvéderm Volbella has transformed the way we treat the lips, and because of its proprietary Vycross technology, results are more natural-appearing than other fillers and last up to a year.”—Beverly Hills, CA facial plastic surgeon Natalie Attenello, MD
Best Laser For Glowy Skin
The go-to nonablative laser that continuously gets rave reviews, Fraxel works on and below the skin’s surface to reduce fine lines, visible photo aging, wrinkles, scarring and sun damage.
“Fraxel has withstood the test of time and is a safe, predictable way to rejuvenate the face. The recovery time is typically only a few days based on the patient’s skin type and treatment goals.”—Metairie, LA plastic surgeon Kamran Khoobehi, MD

Best Filler For Laugh Lines
When the face is at rest—not smiling or laughing—and deep-set lines around the mouth are still visible, Restylane Refyne smooths them in a natural-looking way so the face looks refreshed, not “done.”
“One of the most versatile hyaluronic acid fillers on the market right now, Restylane Refyne is a great option for reducing smile lines, and results generally last up to one year.”—Prospect, KY dermatologist Tami Buss Cassis, MD
Best Cellulite Minimizer
FDA-cleared and minimally invasive, Cellfina delivers a long-awaited solution for smooth, dimple-free skin by releasing the bands that pull down on fat, causing the orange-peel look.
“Before Cellfina, we didn’t have any treatments that gave real improvement and lasted, but Cellfina has been shown to have high patient satisfaction, even four or five years after treatment.”—New Jersey plastic surgeon Reza Momeni, MD
Best Filler For Hand Rejuvenation
When volume loss on the hands accentuates veins, wrinkles and crepey skin, Radiesse plumps them back up while stimulating the body’s own collagen to produce a gradual, natural result.
“FDA-approved Radiesse is made up of calcium hydroxylapatite—a naturally occurring substance in the body. It’s one of my favorite ways to smooth and plump the hands, and results last about nine months.” —Chicago plastic surgeon Niki Christopoulos, MD
Best Nonsurgical Skin Tightener
Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound energy to heat tissue below the skin, stimulating collagen formation to lift and tighten the brow, chin or neck for a more youthful-looking contour.
“Ultherapy has been called a nonsurgical facelift, but in reality, it works best on those who only need moderate lifting and do not have excessive sagging. Results are visible after three months and can last two years.”—New York plastic surgeon Craig Baldenhofer, MD
