Top 6 Skincare Trends for 2021

Conveniently located to serve New York City, Tribeca, and The Upper East Side

2020 predicted a year of revolutionary skincare trends, and—while the COVID-19 pandemic brought along many unpredictable changes—skincare triumphed nonetheless. With more time on our hands and days spent at home, many of us relished in our self-care practices and experimented with new skincare products and routines. As we head into the new year, however, we predict that 2021 will be better and more innovative than ever before with these skincare trends.

1.  Personalized Digital Experience

Many businesses were unfortunately forced to close their doors this year, but others worked swiftly to adapt and serve their clients in a COVID-conscious way. This gave rise to digital platforms to seamlessly take skincare consultations to the next level and there’s no turning back as consumers are more educated than ever. They understand the value of customization to achieve healthy, youthful skin.

As part of our clients’ skincare journey with Tribeca MedSpa, virtual consultations are offered via Zoom to communicate with our skincare experts. Clients have the opportunity to receive personalized product and service recommendations, all from the comfort of home.

A complimentary Reveal Imager is offered for a more in-depth skin analysis at the day of appointment. This diagnostic platform provides extraordinary visualization of subsurface melanin and vascular conditions, and magnifies image areas for close examination of specific skin characteristics. This ensures a complete bespoke experience that is tailored to your skin’s individual conditions and needs.

With the pandemic ongoing, we predict these experiences will only continue to become prevalent and more personalized.

2.  Treatment Customization

As a multitude of treatments have become more mainstream, each is becoming increasingly customized to individual clients. No two clients are the same—and their skincare regimens shouldn’t be either.

Whether you’re seeking microneedling or lip fillers, your aesthetician will recommend supplementary treatments and tailor their technique to best suit your skin, your lifestyle, and the desired outcome. Our skincare specialists combine cutting edge technologies with years of experience that inform their decisions to provide the best results for your unique skincare needs. And, in the upcoming year, we believe further advancements in these technologies will allow even more personalization to your treatments.

One of Tribeca MedSpa’s most popular customizable services is our exclusive Tribeca Renew. It offers full face and neck rejuvenation with the benefits of a traditional facelift without any surgery. This service combines neurotoxins, such as Botox® and dermal fillers, to address loss of volume in the temple, cheeks and nasolabial fold lines.

Our experienced providers will also strategically erase unwanted wrinkles and redefine the jawline and cheekbones. To further enhance a youthful appearance, Tribeca Renew can be combined with a PDO Thread Lift to subtly lift the eyebrows, jowls and neck while encouraging collagen production for more volume in the treated areas. PDO threads come in a variety of textures for further customization.

3.  Bespoke Product Ingredients

A custom treatment wouldn’t truly be custom without products designed specifically for you. With revolutionary data capabilities and technology, Skinceuticals® perfected and pioneered the ultimate bespoke serum, Custom D.O.S.E. (Diagnostic Optimization Serum Experience).

Whether your skin concern is aging, dullness, discoloration, acne or texture, Skinceuticals’ proprietary Custom D.O.S.E machine uses an algorithm to translate your data into customized skincare. It can dispense up to 48 different serums formulated with brightening and anti-aging ingredients including Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Tranexamic Acid, Niacinamide, Licorice Roots Extract, Mulberry Extract, Azelaic Acid, and Retinol in a hydroalcoholic or emulsion base.

After a skin analysis and consultation, the machine precisely measures and blends the ingredients at 1,200 rotations per minute and dispenses it in less than 5 minutes. The full ingredients are listed on a custom label, along with an ID # for easy refills.

4.  At Home Self-Care

With more days spent at home than ever and many beauty services becoming unavailable this year, at home self-care was essential. From experimenting with new products on our surplus of makeup-free days to many of us acting as our own hairdresser this year, each of us became a bit of a self-care expert. With the longer stretch of time in between your professional appointments, a consistent skincare routine at home will help to enhance and prolong your treatment results until we can see you again.

Here are our top 5 at-home skincare product recommendations:

  1. AnteAge Microneedling Kit
  2. Chill Out Kit
  3. Lightstim Handheld Infrared Lights
  4. PCA Revitalizing Mask
  5. Baby Foot Peel

In 2021, we predict this focus on self-care won’t just survive—it will thrive. This emphasis on self-care can only be a good thing as we continue to prioritize our own health and wellness during the years to come.

5.  Inclusivity

For years, the representation of beauty in the aesthetic industry has been limited. The evolution for an all-inclusive vision of beauty was an emerging trend, accelerated this year from conversations about racism and social injustices. Beauty companies are being more introspective about celebrating all ages, skin tones, and gender identity to resonate with more consumers. Antiquated language, such as “fair” or “whitening”, is no longer ideal, and the focus is shifting towards clarity, radiance, and glow.

Furthermore, attention to gender neutral services and packaging is essential, steering away from out-of-date gender tropes and instead addressing skin concerns, regardless of gender identity.

At Tribeca MedSpa, we have always strived to be an inclusive company in all we do: with the offerings of our service and retail matrix, in education, in management, and in our partnerships. We will continue to fully embrace diversity and inclusion and be part of this emerging trend. Beauty Is for All!

6.  Essential Beauty Care

There is no doubt that 2020 was a notable year for reevaluating beauty woes, with consumers in search of safer and more effective ways to ensure skin health and wellness.

As a result, positive changes have been made in the beauty sector, with focus on essential products such as hand sanitizers, calming masks, acne products, and soothing moisturizers and at home hair color kits.

As the mouth, nose and cheeks are covered with protective masks, consumers are also shifting attention to the eyes and hair. With this in mind, we curated these exclusive essential kits to take you into the new year: Skinceuticals Essentials Kit and Obagi It’s All About The Eyes Kit.

Our partners at Eva Scrivo Hair Salon also perfected a customized At Home Color Kit formulated with the same premium hair color used at the salon.

Regardless of what 2021 brings, we’re excited to work with our clients to make sure their skin’s unique needs and demands are being met, no matter what the future may hold.
