Trends come and go, and that’s especially true for the beauty industry. Between a constant influx of new skincare products promising to deliver miracle results to new technology at your dermatologist’s office…it can seem like there’s always a new cosmetic craze to try. We believe that true trends are not transient and help to shape both our current and future cosmetic developments. With that in mind, here are 5 skincare trends for 2023 worth learning about.
The popular “less is more” trend will continue in 2023 based on naturalness – doing without unnecessary products and celebrating our natural beauty. Skinimalism is not just about make-up routine, but skincare itself: relying on quality over quantity and using as few products as possible. Multifunctional skincare products like hydrating serums for the face and hair are already on the rise.
Clean beauty is a trend that’s here to stay in 2023 (and beyond!) With an abundance of dermatology information now online, social media has given rise to a new age of savvy skincare shoppers. Consumers are more aware than ever of the effects certain ingredients can have on their skin, creating a demand for cleaner products. And with environmental concerns more pressing than ever, many skincare companies are cutting down on packaging too.
Niacinamide is a vitamin B3 derivative and can have a positive effect on the complexion if used regularly. The antioxidant properties protect the skin from free radicals and prevent premature skin aging. It’s a powerful anti-inflammatory, so it can be helpful in treating conditions like acne and rosacea.
Regenerative therapy – like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments – uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate hair growth and the collagen production process. Regenerative therapy can be combined with microneedling or laser treatments, or used topically to treat burns and scars. While we’re already seeing a wave of research on extracellular particles responsible for cellular growth and differentiation, we will most likely see how different deliveries of regenerative therapy work to enhance patients’ skin in 2023.
Lasers are often associated with futuristic technology, but they’re now becoming a mainstay in many dermatology practices. CoolPeel®, an innovative CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment, is quickly becoming one of our most popular treatments.
