1.      Classic Lip Fillers are Not Going Anywhere 

The past few years have been all about lip volume. Classic lip fillers have been the most popular cosmetic treatment. They significantly enhance the appearance of an individual regardless of whether you love or hate them.

One of the famous celebrities with lip fillers who enjoyed spectacular results is Kylie Jenner. Everyone saw her transform from an average teenager to a grown multimillionaire and noticed her plump and fuller lips.

The treatment is minimally invasive, and treatment lasts for a few minutes. The results are not permanent and require future injections to retain the fuller appearance of lips. Injections contain chemicals such as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and polymethylmethacrylate. Among these, the most common filler type is hyaluronic, which helps attain a plumper pout.

In addition, the type of filler selected depends on the purpose of the treatment, whether it is to achieve fuller lips, improve the texture or balance out the shape of the lips.

2.      Lips Are Getting Permanent Pigment

 Classic lip fillers are making room for two new cousins – lip flip and lip blushing. In the former treatment, the plastic surgeons inject a minute amount of Botox on the upper lip muscle. The injection forces it to relax, leading it to flip the top of the lip to make the upper lip look fuller and plumper. In other words, it adds volume, which appears like a natural boast and helps in reducing the obscure gums visibility.

Techniques like micro-blading and nano-blading, semi-permanent tattoo-like treatments, inspired the idea for lip blushing. It is a professionally administered tattoo that injects a natural-looking pigment through the lips to stimulate a semi-permanent color. The goal is to achieve the finish of your favorite lip balm without applying it. Consequently, this treatment helps to give uneven toned lips a more symmetrical appearance.

3.      Non-Invasive Body Contouring is the Fastest Growing Area in Cosmetic Dermatology

Previously, the body contouring technique revolved around the invasive technique of liposuction for tackling excessive fat. It was associated with high cost, lengthy downtime and unchecked side effects.  As a result, non-invasive treatments surfaced, which are heavily requested by cosmetic patients.

Currently, the most famous treatments are cryolipolysis, radiofrequency, laser therapy and injection lipolysis. First, cryolipolysis is the procedure that utilizes extremely low temperatures to target and freezes the fat cells, which are later destroyed and flushed out through the lymphatic system.

Second, laser therapy uses the heat of lasers to destroy the fat cells. The body’s lymphatic system flushes the destroyed cells out within a period of 12 weeks after the treatment.

Third, radiofrequency uses ultrasound technology to contour the body. This treatment is quite gentle on the skin and brings no discomfort when treating stubborn fat pockets.

Fourth, injection lipolysis treats the fullness of the submental area under the chin, also known as a double chin. The injection contains the synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance that the body naturally produces and helps to absorb fat.

4.      Celebrity Cheek Surgery is on the Rise

You must have noticed the dramatic increase in the number of celebrities and influencers who suddenly showcase sky-high cheekbones, narrowing to a jawline sharp enough to cut a paper. They usually caption it as ‘It’s just contour’. However, it seems more real and permanent than makeup. The secret to these flawless cheeks is buccal fat removal surgery.

The treatment involves the removal of pads from the mid-area of your cheeks, known as buccal fat pads. As a result, you will receive a slimmer and more contoured face, just like Bella Hadid. Her picture often pops up on Instagram, being an inspiration for the look.

It guides you to say goodbye to the baby like and round face and get a more defined structure. Also, the procedure takes only 30 minutes, and the swelling diminishes within two weeks without any scarring. You receive a mouthwash to avoid catching infections, and doctors prescribe a liquid diet for a week. 

5.      Tackling Saggy Skin Around the Eyes

Blepharoplasty is a surgical treatment that removes the excess skin from the upper eyelids and reduces the bagginess from under the eyes. It is also known as an eyelift. The surgery has both aesthetic and medical benefits. It is effective for older people whose vision is disturbed due to the saggy skin on the upper eyelids.

6.      Making a Commitment with Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the most searched cosmetic treatments. They are still a subject of reality shows; tabloid spreads, and a repetitive topic of celebrity culture. For many years, breast implants have dominated the industry. However, their existence is getting smaller in space. Women desire a more natural look and refrain from being associated with artificiality and tackiness.

The alternative to breast implants is fat transfer breast augmentation. In this process, the surgeon will use liposuction to extract fat from another part of your body and then inject that fat into your breasts. The surgeon takes the fat from the belly, flanks, back or thighs in most cases. It is suitable for women who want a relatively smaller increase in their breast size.

7.      Ultherapy is the New Non-Invasive Alternative To Facelift

Ultherapy is a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. It helps in overcoming the agonizing signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin on the face, neck and chest. It also counteracts the drooling of eyebrows. As a result, you get a more youthful-looking appearance. Who doesn’t like being young!

Hence, escape the drowning feeling of getting older and keep the gentleness of your skin intact. It will eliminate all the bitterness from your face, tackling the emerging insecurity and throwing them away in a dustbin. As a result, your confidence will increase, and you’ll be ready to take any hit.

The Takeaway

They want to carve themselves in an embodiment of self-confidence, which will leave people drooling and inspired. Hence, if these cosmetic treatments can help you earn this feeling, then go for it. However, make sure to consult a certified professional before setting an appointment. They will give you all the details regarding the treatment you want to get. Consequently, you will be able to make a rational decision and avail the best services rather than traveling to a nearby local clinic. It is essential to be prepared than to be unprepared.
