1. Kythera’s ATX-101 will be approved for reducing the double chin fat using only an injection. The procedure will need to be repeated 3-5 times in most people, but there will be no incisions and minimal risks. Side effects will be swelling and discomfort that will last maybe up to a week. Off label, it could be used for fat in the belly, love handles, or thighs.
2. Longer acting dermal fillers for total facial volumization will catch on. Fillers such as Voluma, Sculptra, and Artefill can be used to add volume to the temples, cheeks, midface, jawline, and preauricular area. Even earlobes can use a little volume in most people. Very little side effects other than swelling and bruising are noted with these “Liquid Facelifts”, particularly when blunt cannulas are used. Results are instant with Voluma and Artefill, and gradual with the Sculptra. Duration of improvement is about 2 years with Voluma, 2-3 years or longer with Sculptra, and over 5 years (some doctors may say permanent) with the Artefill.

The downside to this lighter dosing is that its duration will be slightly less.
4. A new topical neuromodulator, Revance’s RT001, will be FDA approved in 2014. Unfortunately, this won’t eliminate all the injections. It will be great for minimizing wrinkles in the crows feet area and possible for reducing underarm sweat though. It still will be administered in the doctor’s office (not for in home use).
5. Tattoo removal will become easier with less trips to the doctors office. With new protocols like the R20 and R0, several treatments (up to 4) can be combined into one office visit. It looks
