What Is Happening in Laser Treatment Trends?

The pursuit of beauty and wellness has entered a new era, where innovative treatments and cutting-edge technology are revolutionizing the world of cosmetic and dermatological care. Today’s med spas and skin clinics offer an array of unique combination treatments that deliver remarkable results without the need for invasive surgery. Whether it’s the desire for a youthful complexion, a sculpted physique, or a rejuvenated appearance, clients are seeking effective and minimally invasive solutions. This article will explore the latest trends in combination treatments, from dynamic duos that pair laser skin peels with fillers to non-surgical neck lifts and probiotic skincare. We’ll also delve into the growing popularity of treatments among millennials and male clientele, and how these trends are shaping the future of the industry. Join us as we uncover the transformative power of combination treatments and how they redefine beauty and wellness in the modern age.  

You can grow your medical or med spa practice in the coming year by keeping up with client demands. See which dermatology trends are shaping this fast-moving industry so your business can offer the new treatments and procedures that clients want. 

Unique Combination Treatments  

Another trend that your business should respond to is the use of combination of cosmetic and dermatological treatments for more successful results. Med spa practices are now offering signature services that combine laser skin peels and fillers, for example. Others offer laser body sculpting with ultrasound skin tightening. These dynamic duos provide more dramatic results which are comparable to invasive cosmetic surgery procedures, yet clients are happy to avoid going under the knife. This is exciting news for business in the industry because the combinations are nearly limitless. 

Combination treatments promise extra bang for their buck by pairing two different types of laser or light therapy, or pair laser treatment with another cosmetic procedure. This year, the industry experts are predicting an increased demand for the following combos:  

  • Traditional facial + micro-needling – together they effectively smooth and refresh skin.  
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) + micro-needling – for the full ‘vampire facial’ effect.  
  • Micro-needling + radiofrequency treatment – works to boost collagen production and minimize wrinkles.  
  • Laser Peel + Broadband Light (BBL) treatment – to rejuvenate skin and address aging and sun damage.  
  • Ablative + non-ablative fractional laser resurfacing – helps get better results with less pain.  
  • Ultrasound + IPL, radio frequency and Infared devices – for faster, more visible non-invasive body contouring results.   
  • Laser-assisted liposuction – using laser devices to liquefy the fat that is then removed through surgical liposuction.  

The Latest Aesthetic Laser Treatments

For the coming year, prepare to get more requests for laser skin resurfacing, probiotic skin care, laser skin tightening, micro-fillers, laser tattoo removal, combination treatments, laser spider vein treatment, thread lifts and laser vaginal rejuvenation. Also, get ready to have more male clients requesting cosmetic dermatology treatments.

Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening  

The clientele for skin clinics and med spas has been getting younger and younger each year. Now, millennials are even looking to stop aging in its tracks. At the same time, however, they do not want to look like someone else. They desire subtle enhancement with a fresh, natural look. And they also do not want to take time off work or from their busy schedule to recover from invasive procedures.  

Non-surgical skin tightening procedures are going to be increasingly popular. Experts say to look out for ultrasound treatments that increase collagen production below the surface of the skin. Also, photo-facials, or photo-rejuvenation, using IPL devices do not require any downtime and improve the elasticity of skin.  

For a non-invasive mini facelift, many practices are turning to laser skin tightening. The procedure is incredibly popular because clients can have it done in-office by a cosmetic dermatologist. Plus, there is virtually no recovery time needed. Laser skin tightening can be used to treat wrinkles or looseness on the face, as well as the neck, mid-section, arms, legs and buttocks. 

Using the laser to make the skin contract provides an immediate lifting effect. Then, by warming the collagen below the skin’s surface, the treatment offers more long-term improvement in the following months. The procedure is repeated for best results after one and two months. 

Non-Invasive Cellulite Treatment  

Following the same trend, we are seeing a greater interest in relatively quick fixes for cellulite on different areas of the body. Though multiple sessions are usually required, you can give your clients the results they desire with little to no downtime. Ultrasonic lipo sculpting, acoustic wave therapy, and various laser therapies, and radio-frequency devices with a laser, suction, and massage can successfully target cellulite.  

Laser Facial Contouring  

The same technology that has made body contouring a big hit is now being used to reshape the face and jawline. Laser facial contouring is another non-surgical solution to common complaints. It can:  

  • Reduce fat deposits under the chin and below the eyes,  
  • Remodel the jawline,  
  • Firm and tone the skin.  

This type of procedure is popular because it requires no recovery time, is virtually pain-free, and works quickly.  

Non-Surgical Neck Lift  

Many clients complain about the appearance of loose and wrinkled skin on their neck which can be a major sign of aging. Now, with fractionated ablative laser treatment and ultrasound therapy, they can get a younger-looking neck without the expense and risks involved with surgery. With a laser neck lift, clients tend to recover quickly and see great improvement in skin laxity, wrinkles, and jowling.  

Another technique leverages new products, like NovaThreads, to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Thread lifts deliver an immediate improvement for loose neck skin plus a gradual increase of the lifting effect for a full year following the procedure. Clients love the fact that these lifts don’t require general anesthesia and that recovery time is minimal. 

Laser Pore Treatment  

In order to reduce the size of pores and deliver a smoother texture to the skin, laser and IPL treatments are being used often these days. Laser resurfacing can be combined with photopneumatic therapy or a chemical peel for even better results.  

Laser Carbon Peel  

For a super exfoliating effect, laser equipment can be used with a topical liquid carbon treatment. The carbon helps absorb oil and lift dirt and dead cells from the skin’s surface. Then, the Nd:YAG laser device heats it and binds it to the epidermis. The heat will induce collagen production deeper in the tissue, revealing a plumper shape and smoother surface. The laser carbon peel will be a hot procedure in 2021 for treating acne scarring, sun damage, and fine lines.   

Body Sculpting that Builds Muscle  

It sounds too good to be true, but some cosmetic laser surgeons are offering this new generation of body sculpting treatment. The innovative procedures combines Highly Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to strengthen and tone muscles and radiofrequency to eliminate fat tissue. 

Laser Skin Resurfacing 

For a quick transformation, C02 lasers are being used to resurface facial skin. By removing the skin’s surface layers and stimulating the production of collagen, this trendy treatment reduces the appearance of sun damage and age lines. Laser skin resurfacing results in healthier, younger-looking skin. 

Probiotic Skincare 

All the beauty magazines are reporting on probiotic skincare products. Creams, concentrates, mists, oils, serums and masks infused with live bacteria are said to boost the skin’s natural microbial community, produce an antibiotic effect and foster healing. Some of the biggest brands in dermatology are launching products which are designed to treat a range of issues including acne, oily skin, sun damage, eczema and rosacea. 


Medical and med spa practices are bound to get a lot of requests for micro-filler treatments. Experts are also anticipating the growing popularity of small-dose injectables among younger clients – in the 20s and 30s – who are looking to remedy age lines before they are noticeable. 

Development in the way Botox® and other fillers are injected has made it possible to treat new areas of the face and neck. Unlike full-dose injectables, micro-fillers can smooth out lines and wrinkles in the mid-face, eyes, nose and neck. It can be used where pores are more prominent to smooth out their appearance and lower oil production. The technique has been shown to have an effect that lasts longer by stimulating collagen production. 

Vaginal Rejuvenation 

Many practices have recently seen a greater demand for vaginal rejuvenation procedures. This in-office procedure grants medical and cosmetic benefits which interest many clients. Intima laser treatments are becoming more widely accepted for addressing menopausal symptoms, increasing sexual satisfaction, and toning the labial and vulvar tissues. 

Laser Treatment for Spider Veins 

Older clients seeking treatment for unsightly spider veins in the legs will be happy to know that there are new options available. More advanced lasers can deliver a gentle, yet effective treatment for spider veins with minimal side effects. 

 Male Clientele 

Another new trend for 2019 is seeing more male clients consulting with cosmetic dermatologists and visiting med spas. Over the past several years the number of men requesting facial fillers, rejuvenating and lifting treatments, as well as a range of laser procedures has been on the rise. In response, businesses which offer specialized treatments for men are growing as well.
