The cosmetic industry is constantly evolving, and as people’s desires to look a certain way change over time, so do the most popular treatments. For example, in the early 2000s, liposuction and fat loss surgeries were among the most popular cosmetic treatments, as many people desired the slim and slender fashion model look. However, while these treatments are still popular, as times change, so do people’s aesthetic desires.
That is why, in today’s blog, we’re taking a look into some cosmetic treatment trends to look out for in 2022. We’re exploring some treatments that we predict will be popular this year and why this might be. All the treatments mentioned in this blog are available at our cosmetic clinics, so whether you’re in Jersey, Guernsey, or Northern Ireland, we can help you out if you’re considering any one of them.
Over the past two years, as we have spent more time in the comfort of our own homes, many of us have ditched the makeup and embraced our natural skin, and this is a trend that is not going away any time soon. Skinimalism, as it is known in the industry, is the practice of loving the skin that you’re in without hiding behind layers of makeup which can do more harm than good. If not taken care of properly, makeup can cause a lot of damage to your skin by clogging up pores and irritating your skin. So, if and when you do choose to use it, make sure that you check the ingredients for anything you could be allergic to, do a patch test, and always remember to wash it off correctly before bed.
However, for those wanting to embrace Skinimalism, we can help you out. Here at Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we offer an incredible range of professional skincare treatments to give you that natural, glowing look everyone is after this year. If you’re unsure what your skin needs to look and feel its best, come down to one of our cosmetic skin clinics and try out Visia Skin Analysis. We take standard cross-polarised and UV photographs during this skin analysis to measure your skin’s surface damage, conditioners, and deeper, underlying skin issues. Once we have this data, we can consult you properly, pointing you in the direction you need. We can provide a bespoke, professional skincare routine, supplying you with everything you need to get your skin’s health right where it needs to be.
Saving the Planet One Semi-Permanent Makeup Session at a Time
Another cosmetic treatment trend taking the industry by storm is semi-permanent makeup. This treatment, often known as micro-pigmentation, involved implanting pigment directly into the dermal layer of the skin to mimic the look of makeup. Semi-permanent makeup is incredibly popular amongst the stars, allowing them to wake up and be instantly ready for the day without spending hours in the makeup chair. There are three main areas that someone might want semi-permanent makeup – the eyebrows, lips, and eyelids (to mimic eyeliner). Of course, we work to make the results as natural as possible, but you can decide how natural this is. Choose a soft lip tint or go all out with the look of perfectly applied lip liner and lipstick – it’s entirely up to you.
This treatment is also fantastic for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint, as there is no need to spend money on makeup that could be harmful to the environment. Sadly, many makeup brands still test on animals and are not made with organic, sustainable ingredients. In addition, they are almost always packaged in plastic, and much of this packaging cannot be recycled. Semi-permanent makeup eliminates this, making it an excellent choice for you and the planet. Most eyeliners, lipsticks, and eyebrow gels will go out of date within six to twelve months, whereas semi-permanent makeup can last several years!
Easy on the Eyes
Eye surgeries have only just become popular over the last couple of years, and we predict that 2022 will be their most popular yet. There are several reasons why someone might undergo eye surgery; for example, they could be insecure about excess skin on their eyelids. In this case, we would recommend eyelid surgery, which is a quick surgical procedure designed to reduce drooping on the eyelid.
Additionally, if you want to reduce the appearance of eye bags, we would possibly suggest dermal fillers. This is a delicate and sensitive area, so we would use a very fine product, not like dermal filler that you would expect on the lips, for example. By injecting the dermal filler under the eyes, you lighten up darkened areas due to hollows and wrinkles and fill the space lost due to ageing.
Rhinoplasty on the Rise
Rhinoplasty is often near the top of the list for the most popular cosmetic treatment, which is no different this year. But why does this surgery always come out on top? Here at Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we believe it is because of the significant change to someone’s face. For a small area, the nose can define how your entire face looks, and if you’re unhappy with the shape or size of your nose, you may feel unhappy with your whole face, something that can lower your confidence.
If this sounds like something you’re struggling with, our rhinoplasty in Jersey and Guernsey might just be what you’re looking for.
