It is a fact that the standards of beauty and fashion are changing every decade. This is the reason why we find it so appealing to explore the style of the 1930s or 1950s and dress up accordingly. However, this change also signifies that plastic surgery has never been more popular.
Every year there are new trends that people all around the world follow closely. What’s more, due to the development of technology and social media platforms, it seems that every month there is a new beauty trend to follow. The same thing can be said for cosmetic procedures that are going to be the main focus of this article.
The facelift is a procedure that has been around for many years now and its popularity isn’t declining. As we age, the health of our skin can drastically decline due to insufficient care, sun and UV light exposure, even stress. We are not even going to mention fine lines and wrinkles that are going to appear as you grow older no matter what you do.
According to Dr. Kien Ha, wrinkles and excess skin are something that can completely shatter one’s confidence which is why it comes as no surprise that face lifting is still as popular as it used to be a couple of decades ago. What’s more, due to the fact that technology has affected i.e. improved medical equipment, this procedure has become less invasive.
2. Jawline contouring
Jawline fillers are expected to be the leading trend this year because of two reasons. Firstly, this is a fairly simple and quick procedure. In fact, we are not only sure if this can be called a procedure because the expert will only inject you with fillers. The duration of the procedure is around 15 minutes, and the results will be visible in around two weeks.
Furthermore, another reason is the jawline contouring can improve symmetry of your face thus provide you with a youthful and refined appearance. In addition, it can also be used to prevent jowls i.e. the sagging skin under your jawline that occurs over time.
3. Chin fillers
Besides patients who want to get a jawline contouring, experts have also noticed a surge in those who want to invest in chin fillers. More and more people want to change the shape of their chin, and interestingly, there are a lot of men who are interested in getting chin fillers. Why? Well, simply because this way they will get the masculine structure they desire.
When it comes to the procedure, it can last between half an hour and an hour. Another thing that interests people is whether it is painful. Yes, it can be painful, but this is why the provider will apply some sort of anesthetic. Plus, sometimes these syringes contain lidocaine alongside fillers to make the whole experience more comfortable.
4. Cheekbone fillers
Similarly to the two above-mentioned procedures, this one doesn’t come as a surprise, right? After all, there are numerous methods to improve the symmetry of your face which means that there are multiple types of fillers. As it is the case with the previous ones, this procedure is also very quick and you might even be able to see some results immediately. Still, have in mind, fillers need some time to take their shape, so you should wait a few days before making the decision whether you like your new look or not.
Many dermatologists believe that this is the year of Botox. This technology has been upgraded greatly and this procedure isn’t as exclusive as it used to be. In a sense, this is to be expected, since new trends are emerging every year. This means that not only is this procedure becoming affordable, but it is also going to become ‘a common use’, meaning that more and more people are going to get it.
As you know, the whole point of injecting Botox is to eliminate wrinkles and make skin younger and radiant. Until a few years ago, only people of certain age faced with age-related deterioration of the skin would think about getting Botox. However, things have slightly changed recently. Nowadays, the number of people who are getting it as a preventive measure is increasing. If you really think about it, this fact is not that surprising taking into consideration that we live in an era of social media platforms and selfies.
6. Cosmetic tattooing
Cosmetic tattooing is a technique of creating permanent makeup. Experts say that this procedure is perfect for people who experience some type of issue when applying or removing makeup from their faces. A lot of women do not dare leave their home without at least some basic products on their skin regardless of the fact whether they can cause damage to their skin.
If you have faint eyebrows or want to define the lip line, this cosmetic procedure might be right for you. Still, keep in mind that this is a procedure after all. It doesn’t matter how popular it is and how many people perform it you should only go to a trained professional in order to be certain that you will get exactly what you want.
7. Body contouring
Finally, just like Botox, these procedures aren’t going anywhere. These can be divided into two categories – invasive and non-invasive. As you know, liposuction and tummy tucks are the most popular ones for the former group. On the other hand, there are numerous that fall into the latter category such as muscle enhancement, skin tightening, temperature-based fat reduction, and there are even injections that can help you get rid of cellulite.
The thing is that these techniques are going to be improved and new ones are going to be created. This means that, in the future, they are going to be less painful, more efficient, and lastly, cheaper.
