In 2021, there are many exciting cosmetic beauty procedures and treatments that can be used to help your patients reach their goals. By staying on the cutting-edge of aesthetic treatments, you can achieve heightened results and greater patient satisfaction for a thriving aesthetic practice.
Injectables, PRP, and laser treatments are among the top cosmetic procedures and treatments to consider in 2021. Let’s learn more about these treatment options and how they can produce stunning results.
Neurotoxins and Dermal Fillers
Injectables, including neurotoxins and dermal fillers, are highly popular, non-surgical treatment options for a broad range of cosmetic concerns. Neurotoxins like Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin relax the muscles in the face that cause deep wrinkles. Injectable dermal fillers provide structure and volume to the skin. Dermal fillers can offset decreased collagen production in the skin as a result of the aging process by volumizing areas with lost fat tissue.
Select injectable fillers can be used for hand and foot rejuvenation. As with the face, the skin on the hands loses volume and elasticity with age. Injectables can restore plumpness and firmness to the hands for a more youthful look. On the feet, dermal filler can be used to add volume to the fat pads to alleviate pain while walking or standing.

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. While PRP is commonly used in regenerative medicine for its ability to speed up the healing process for various injuries and conditions, PRP injections are emerging as a treatment option in cosmetic applications. PRP injections help regenerate the skin by increasing the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This rejuvenates the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin elasticity. PRP injections can also lessen scarring for a healthier-looking complexion. PRP can be combined with microneedling or fillers to enhance treatments. PRP is a great addition to any aesthetic practice.

Laser treatments have been rapidly gaining prevalence as a non-invasive solution to common skin concerns. Aesthetic laser systems use laser energy to treat areas of concern with precision, heating the deep layers of the skin to spur the natural healing process. This increases collagen and elastin production while tightening the skin for a healthier, rejuvenated appearance. Laser treatment can also be used for long-lasting hair removal.
