New Year’s resolutions usually entail the latest trendy workout, perhaps paired with a fad diet or two…at least during the month of January. But for some, including celebrities, resolutions don’t necessitate a visit to the gym but do include a cosmetic procedure or two. The Observer spoke to Dr. Arash Akhavan, MD, FAAD, and the founder of the Dermatology and Laser Group to find out what procedures will be the most popular in 2017.
“The major trends in cosmetic procedures we’ll see next year are all minimally invasive treatments with little to no down time,” Dr. Akhavan disclosed. “A patient can leave the office and return to their busy work and social calendars within a couple of days, if not a few hours. Currently, we see this with SculpSure, Cellfina and The Vampire Laser, as they have been particularly attractive to our celebrity patients.” No recovery time is certainly compulsory for celebrity patients, as fans watch their every move on social media. If a star stops posting even for a week, gossip haunts them—look at the rumors Kendall Jenner’s social media hiatus spurred.
