The world of beauty is an incredibly fast-paced, multi-faceted, and fascinating one, where trends come and go, and what’s popular today may become outdated tomorrow. So, we’re thrilled to introduce a new column in which we ask our very own ASC experts a few questions to gain a glimpse into the latest beauty trends, the most requested treatments at our clinics, and what to expect over the next few months.

In today’s blog, Hayley Jordan, Senior Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner and Director of Medical Governance at ASC, will provide invaluable insights into the world of cosmetic treatments. She will share with us the most sought-after cosmetic procedures, emerging beauty trends and innovations, and the biggest drivers behind the rise in specific treatments.

What Are the Top Cosmetic Procedures and Treatments at ASC?

According to Hayley, muscle-relaxing injections are the most popular treatment among ASC’s clientele, and it’s easy to understand why. These injections offer a prompt remedy for wrinkles and fine lines, boasting results that last 4-6 months without any downtime. With a track record of efficacy and trust built over the years, it’s no wonder why patients flock to this treatment!

However, muscle-relaxing injections are not the only customer favourites; non-surgical skin tightening procedures have also been gaining incredible traction lately. Sophisticated technologies like Ultracel Q+ have transformed the landscape, delivering enhanced outcomes with prolonged effects. Hayley thinks it’s encouraging to witness more patients who want to tighten, lift, and sculpt their way to rejuvenation opting for these non-surgical treatments, as they are not invasive.

Emerging Beauty Trends and Innovations

Looking ahead, Hayley predicts a surge in non-invasive procedures tailored for aspects beyond wrinkle reduction. Rather than a standard approach, ASC advocates for a more personalised method where treatments cater to individual requests, whether it’s defining cheekbones or augmenting lips. In such a context, regenerative aesthetics mark a promising frontier, with innovations like Polynucleotides and Exosomes leading the charge. These advancements, which we’ll explore in more detail below, focus on the body’s natural ability to heal and regenerate, delivering natural results that last.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

As we briefly mentioned, this Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy taps into the body’s healing capabilities by extracting platelets from the patient’s blood, which, rich in growth factors, stimulate tissue regeneration and repair. When administered directly to the scalp, PRP injections promote hair growth, increase hair thickness, and improve overall hair quality. With minimal invasiveness and virtually no downtime, PRP therapy is an innovative, convenient, and exceptionally effective solution for hair rejuvenation.

Exosome Therapy

Exosome therapy leverages exosomes in intercellular communication. Exosomes, which derive from stem cells, can trigger regeneration and tissue repair, easing various biological processes. In DHI hair treatments, for instance, the application of exosome-rich solutions to the scalp revitalises hair follicles and promotes hair growth. Patients who are sensitive to blood or are seeking less invasive procedures will be happy to know that, unlike PRP, exosome therapy eliminates the need for blood extraction, making it a more attractive option.


Polynucleotide injections are another revolutionary aesthetic method thanks to the regenerative potential of nucleic acids. These bio-stimulators trigger the skin’s natural healing processes, emerging as an effective solution to tackle various skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, firmness, enlarged pores, pigmentation, and inflammation. Resulting in healthier and more youthful-looking skin, this treatment is incredibly versatile and comes across as a frontrunner in skin rejuvenation.

The Drivers Behind the Rise in Specific Procedures

When it comes to cosmetic procedures, Hayley states we can’t overlook the strong influence of social media and celebrity endorsements. Platforms like Instagram, TikTok (with its “SkinTok” trends), and YouTube have become real hubs for popular beauty trends, with macro and nano influencers alike affecting consumer choices by promoting skincare products and treatments. For instance, the recent surge in certain procedures, such as lip fillers, can be partly attributed to the great visibility and appeal driven by prominent social media personalities.

Recently, there has also been a noticeable shift towards embracing more natural treatments, a trend that has gained momentum in response to evolving societal norms. As a result, patients feel more confident to explore cosmetic procedures. This shift reflects not only a desire for authenticity but also a broader cultural movement towards embracing one’s natural beauty.

Our Advice for Prospective Patients

When contemplating cosmetic surgeries or aesthetic procedures, Hayley advises that entrusting the guidance of professionals like the ASC team becomes invaluable. She emphasises how important it is to choose a qualified practitioner with a wealth of experience.

Prospective patients are encouraged to look into the specifics of their chosen procedure, gaining helpful insights into potential outcomes and associated risks. Understanding the nuances of injectable treatments is particularly vital, as familiarity with the products used and their safety profiles can significantly impact the overall experience and results. These insights are especially precious because not only do they give a better perspective on the latest trends and innovations, but they also provide detailed information on safer and more effective aesthetic solutions.

So, we have come to the end of this first “Meet the ASC Experts” blog. We hope you have found all the information Hayley shared useful and informative.
