5 of the Biggest Beauty Breakthroughs in the Last Year

Biggest Beauty Breakthroughs of the YearThe world of cosmetic enhancements is always moving forward and this past year brought us some remarkable new treatments and options.

Ideal Breast Implants

The IDEAL IMPLANT® was approved by the FDA in September. This new saline implant offers an alternative to traditional saline or silicone breast implants. It allows women to choose a saline implant with a more natural feel, which is generally associated with silicone implants.

Restylane Silk

For those very fine lines around the lips, Restylane Silk offers an improved option for subtle lip enhancement.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Advances in laser technology, brought us the Enlighten laser, which can treat most skin types and remove tattoos more quickly than some other lasers.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Although not new in 2015, the year continued the upward trend of buttock enhancement that began in the “year of the booty” in 2014. This fat transfer method has helped thousands of women achieve the shapelier bodies that today’s trends make desirable.


Just like CoolSculpting®, the CoolMini treatment is a non-surgical procedure that freezes fat in your neck region. Patients can expect a 20 to 25 percent reduction in fat around the neck.
