The Latest Trends in Medical Aesthetics

Medical Aesthetics

Looking good and rejuvenated today does not necessarily mean that you have to break the bank. Treatments are available that use cutting-edge technologies and are yet affordable. This is the primary reason why there has been a surge in demand for these procedures the world over and the beauty care industry is growing at an exponential rate.

Here are some of the latest trends in beauty aesthetics that will help you find the new you.

Continuous growth in non-surgical procedures

Non-surgical procedures have been in vogue for quite some time now and continue to show steady growth. Treatments available on technologically advanced laser and IPL machines cover many areas of beauty care – from permanent hair removal to skin rejuvenation, from anti-ageing processes to tattoo removal. These IPL devices offer safe and optimised treatments that are quick and effective.

Other non-surgical procedures that are possible due to improved technologies include fat freezing and body contouring that can shape, lift and tighten flabby skin without having to go under the surgeon’s scalpel. However, before opting for such treatments, confirm that these non-surgical treatments will be suitable for you.

Fillers increase in popularity

Dermal fillers have gained in popularity over the years and 2018 has only seen further growth in this area. These fillers are non-invasive treatments and used to restore youth and volume to the face. Due to age, the skin loses its elasticity and becomes dry. Gravity also plays a part, leading to loose and sagging skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Fillers play a critical role in helping to restore volume and plumpness to the jaw line, under the eyes, lips, cheeks, and chin and even around the nose. Fillers are also used to eliminate acne and scar marks.

The main benefit of dermal fillers and a reason for their popularity today is that it is easy to administer through tiny injections around the area under treatment. Moreover, the results are visible almost immediately after a session.

Acne treatments for a glowing skin

Estimates in studies conducted by the beauty industry have astonishing figures to show. About 80% of the population between the ages of 11 to 30 are affected by acne. It is therefore not surprising that the trend of acne treatments in medical aesthetics continues to grow sharply. One of them is Hydra-facial; a process that reduces the appearance of acne and deep cleanses the face. It also removes all impurities like dead cells and blackheads and leaves the skin looking fresh and rejuvenated.

Rhinoplasty – reshaping the nose

Rhinoplasty is a surgical process. It has been in fashion for years now and continues to be on the top of the charts in medical aesthetics. This is partly because it not only enhances the appearance of large or misshapen noses but in cases of medical problems improves the quality of breathing too. A well-shaped nose is a confidence booster and is one reason why Rhinoplasty accounted for over 7.4% of all cosmetic procedures around the world.

Treating facial lines before they appear

In the past, treatment of fine lines and wrinkles started after they appeared. This concept has been turned on its head now with the latest trend being preventive measures to pre-empt their showing up. Botox is the answer with neurotoxins in the injections preventing the formation of facial lines and wrinkles. Neurotoxins relax the muscles that crease the skin, ensuring a fresh and youthful facial look.
