New year, new you!

As 2020 begins, we’re taking a look at what are set to be the most popular treatments and top aesthetic trends of 2020 – and why they’re so fashionable.

You can find many different procedures at our Belfast cosmetic clinic, Guernsey cosmetic clinic and Jersey cosmetic clinic, so you can rest assured that we are able to provide the treatment you’re looking for.

At The Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we believe it’s important to have our finger on the pulse when it comes to aesthetic trends, be they surgical procedures or non-invasive treatments, so you can find some of the top aesthetic trends of 2020 below.

Seeking Jawline Definition

‘Tweakments’ are still a popular option, and 2020 will see a rise in non-invasive jawline treatments. Sculpting the face can be achieved by adding volume with dermal fillers, for example, as well as procedures which tighten, smooth or lift the skin, such as Thermage CPT Face. The results will be a more toned and defined appearance and an improvement in wrinkled or saggy skin.

Allergan has also launched a few products that are gaining huge traction when it comes to jawline treatments. Its Volift injections can rejuvenate facial areas and restore or add volume to facial contours; likewise, Allergan’s Volux can help to create a more defined chin and jawline by sculpting the face.

These and other procedures are perfect to enhance your profile without having to go under the knife. If you prefer a more permanent solution, a neck lift can be a fantastic option, as it reduces visible signs of ageing in the neck and jawline.

The jaw appears to be a popular option in 2020, as many are also seeking fuller jawlines that will improve their selfie angle. By using fillers, it’s possible to enhance the geometry of your jaw to create a sharper angle from the hairline to the tip of the chin.

An Increase in Vaginal Rejuvenation

The natural ageing process, as well as childbirth, can cause changes to the body, such as stretching of the vagina and loosening of the pelvic floor, which will impact your mental health and wellbeing. Menopause can also cause changes like excessive dryness, urinary incontinence and thinning of the vaginal wall.

So, in 2020, we’re going to see an increase in the demand for treatments such as Thermiva vaginal rejuvenation as a growing number of women take control of their sexual health and restore their wellbeing. Thermiva uses radiofrequency to tighten deep tissues and combat pain, dryness and incontinence, among other issues. The treatment stimulates collagen production and shortens elastin fibres for improved firmness.

More Men Pursuing Cosmetic Treatments

While many people who undergo aesthetic treatments are women, more and more men are also seeking cosmetic procedures. For a long time, this wasn’t as accepted as it is today, so we can expect the new year to see a rise in this number.

Some of the most sought-after treatments by men are hair transplant surgery and anti-wrinkle injections, although others, like nose reshaping and even our HydraFacial therapy, are popular as well. In fact, HydraFacial also has a huge celebrity cult following, as it’s a procedure that purifies, exfoliates, rejuvenates, hydrates and protects your complexion.

Neck Plumping

Another trend you’ll see more of in 2020 is neck plumping. Because the skin of your neck is thinner and doesn’t have a lot of fatty tissue, it’s one of the first areas of the body to age. By plumping your neck, you can combat signs of ageing like loss of volume and wrinkling.

At the Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we can use Intracel to improve skin quality and to deliver radiofrequency to the deep layers of the skin, which will tighten and shorten collagen fibres while encouraging collagen production and the stimulation of fibroblasts.

For this reason, Intracel is a great anti-ageing treatment. After Intracel, we would apply IPL Photo Rejuvenation to even the skin tone and offer even more natural results.

Removing Pockets of Stubborn Fat

2020 will also be about body sculpting and great skin treatments, so we expect to see more of non-invasive fat removal procedures.

Not everyone wants to undergo liposuction, despite its advantages (including its permanent results and ability to remove larger quantities of fat), mainly due to its recovery period. Because of this, options like Cristal Cryolipolysis, or fat freezing, have risen in popularity; this treatment allows people to remove stubborn pockets of fat by destroying fat cells through the delivery of very low temperatures.

Cristal Cryolipolysis is highly efficient for areas like the inner and outer thighs and even the muffin top. It’s also perfect if you’re looking for efficient body contouring, as the procedure targets localised fat and improve your silhouette permanently by removing fat cells from the area. Cristal Cryolipolysis doesn’t require surgery, anaesthesia or excessive downtime and can last for a long time, more reasons why the treatment is popular and will be even more sought-after in 2020.

By improving the body’s contour, you don’t have to worry about diet-resistant areas anymore, including the tummy and the back thighs, so you’ll get a boost of confidence and will be ready for everything – including full-length photos!

Get a Bespoke Facial

With the rise of selfies and better camera technology, it’s easier than ever for pictures to capture every single imperfection, from clogged pores to a dry complexion. A facial treatment can help you to deal with these and more issues, as well as feel more confident in your skin when the viewfinder is up close. Due to this, facials will remain a strong trend throughout 2020.

Each person is different, so it stands to reason that a facial should be tailored to your specific needs and requirements. We can offer you a bespoke facial at our clinics, which will guarantee the best results and a rejuvenated, fresh complexion.

You can benefit from our Envy Facial treatment, which infuses the skin with serums and ensures hydration, texture, tone and volume are optimised. Our HydraFacial procedure will leave your skin brighter and refreshed by unclogging pores, removing dead skin and dirt and offering hydration, antioxidant protection, exfoliation, and so much more.

And let’s not forget our fantastic Obagi Blue Peel – this treatment is quick, simple and designed to improve the appearance and health of your skin. A low concentration of trichloracetic acid is mixed in a blue solution that removes thin layers of damaged or aged skin from the face or body. It’s a great procedure to correct wrinkles, unwanted pigmentation and large pores, and improve the appearance of scars.

By combining peels with energy devices and excellent skincare, you get a bespoke treatment that works for your skin.

Creating a Radiant Smile

It would be next-to-impossible not to mention Kate Middleton’s beautiful smile as a trend for 2020! The Duchess of Cambridge always appears happy, friendly and warm due to her natural smile. Most people whose smiles are downturned or who have a furrowed brow naturally, may appear anxious or less engaging.

The search for a happy face ends with The Aesthetic Skin Clinic – with dermal fillers, we can easily help you to turn that frown upside down. The fillers can be applied to the corners of the lips, for example, enhancing your features with a more upturned smiled.
