This is the fifth consecutive year Ultherapy® has received a NewBeauty award and was named the “Tried-and-True Skin Tightener” in 2018 for its ultrasound technology that lifts and tightens skin. Cellfina® won for the second year in a row and was named the “Ultimate Cellulite Fighter” for being effective for up to three years. For the first time, Radiesse® was named the “Quick Fix For Better-Looking Hands” for being the only filler FDA-approved to correct lost volume in hands. NewBeauty Magazine readers, as well as renowned beauty experts and editors, made their votes count in the magazine’s eighth annual Beauty Choice Awards, selecting several Merz products from thousands of submissions and hundreds of nominations. The Beauty Choice Awards recognize the industry’s best products.

In addition, Cellfina® was named the “Best Non-Surgical Body Shaping Device” by THE European Aesthetic Guide as part of its second annual industry awards. THE Aesthetic Industry Awards celebrate innovative, cutting-edge technologies, techniques and practices at the forefront of the aesthetic space. Cellfina® was recognized as the only U.S. FDA-cleared and EU CE Mark-certified cellulite treatment that is a minimally invasive, one-time procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least three years – the longest duration for a cellulite treatment that targets the primary structural cause of cellulite.

InStyle Magazine named Neocutis® Lumière® and Lumière® Riche “Best Beauty Buys” in 2018, marking the nineteenth time Neocutis® has been awarded the title since 2009.
