2017 was an awesome year for the global aesthetic spa sector, not only were there record profits, but there was a host of new devices, services and treatment options all of which helped propel the industry throughout the year. 2018, also promises to be another stellar year for medical aesthetics with even more breakthroughs and cutting-edge treatments being brought to market.
Of all the aesthetic spa services dermal fillers, particularly lip fillers have become extremely popular. Thanks to celebrities like Megan Fox, Nicole Kidman, as well as Kylie and Kendall Jenner. These celebs are proving that with a few carefully placed injections you can enhance the symmetry and increase the attractiveness of the face.
Unlike BOTOX, dermal fillers aren’t meant to freeze muscle, they in fact are designed to naturally plump, contour and refine an area. When used on the lips the result is suppler, plumper and more defined lips. Aside from offering you the shape you have always wanted, most lip fillers are derived from Hyaluronic Acid a naturally occurring acid that is already present in the body, because it is a natural ingredient the risk of complications and side effects are greatly reduced.
Future of Fillers in 2018
Piggy backing off the success and popularity of lip injections, patients and medical spa enthusiasts can look forward to more customizable fillers that can target specific areas and issues. Non-surgical nose jobs will be extremely popular, using the same ingredients in lip fillers the nose and nasal area can now be refined, reshaped and enhanced without surgery. Non-surgical nose jobs are an excellent alternative to invasive plastic surgery and require no downtime post treatment, unlike rhinoplasty which takes weeks if not months to recover form completely. The reduced price point will also make it attractive to those who have wanted to tweak their nose but have not been able to access plastic surgery due to cost.
New Year, Tighter Skin
Another aesthetic spa trend that is poised to dominate 2018 is skin tightening. Whether its non-surgical face lifts or tightening loose skin of the abdomen treatments and services that cater to those looking for skin tightening options will be amongst the most in demand this year.
Of all the skin tightening treatments ultrasound-based skin tightening is considered the gold standard. Using the same technology that allows doctors to check on a baby’s pre-natal health, ultrasound therapy in a stronger dose is now being used to target the matrix deep inside your skin and refine, enhance and restructure it for a more taut and firm appearance.
Skin tightening can also be achieved with multi-polar radio frequency and electro magnetic fields. Like ultrasound therapy these treatments target the collagen and elastin deep inside the face and promotes new growth and healing, once again allowing for an improved appearance that is tighter and refreshed.
Choosing the Service for You
When it comes to choosing the right service for the right area it is best to ask an expert. While ultrasound therapy is ideal for the face, other areas can experience better results with different treatments. The degree of laxity will also play an important part in factoring which service is used on you.
Look for a licensed provider who can answer your questions and offer you a variety of options and solutions for your issues.
