The cosmetic industry is ever-changing, bringing us more advanced aesthetic enhancements backed with extensive scientific research. As times go by, treatments become more affordable and people more acceptive of the possibilities hidden behind the procedures. With new technologies, results became more subtle and yet noticeable, while the recovery period got cut down significantly. Wondering what 2018 has in the bag for us? Here are the top cosmetic treatment trends that lie ahead.

Micro-botox Will Take the World by Storm

 

In the last couple of years, we have seen the trend of treating wrinkles before they even appear. Prevention-oriented patients have already discovered the magic of micro-botox and we will surely see this treatment skyrocket this year, particularly in Europe. Micro-botox isn’t used only to prevent or reduce lines. It can also do wonders for enlarged pores, given the fact it targets sweat and oil glands, as well as specific facial muscles. It tightens the skin, boosts its radiance, and makes it look smoother and dewy. Micro-botox might also be a great solution for getting rid of acne. Neurotoxins are injected in smaller dosage and more superficially, which is why micro-botox is also known as intradermal botox. An average treatment is about half an hour long. The results are visible after a week and last up to 4 months.

Liposuction Remains Popular

 

Developed in the late 70’, liposuction has come a long way. It is one of the most popular treatments used to eliminate excessive fat that usually accumulates in the abdomen area, thighs, or waist. The technology has advanced and today, one can choose between many different types of liposuctions.

For example, Australia is one of the first countries in the world that supported the development of tumescent liposuction, brought by the cosmetic surgeon specialist Dr. Lanzer. Tumescent fluid prepares the fat by using a diluted local anesthetic, so there is less pain while the excessive fluids get effectively removed. The antibacterial components prevent infections. Fat is removed through the process of suction (tiny incisions are made), instead of the old way of directly cutting it, which makes the healing process faster and the overall results better. Other liposuction treatments include laser lipo, lip sculpture, ultrasound liposuction, etc.

In-depth Skin Care

 

Further evolution in skin care formulas will certainly continue, and so will the interest of consumers to try out new technologies. Probiotic skin products are slowly being introduced with carefully crafted beauty ingredients that improve levels of healthy bacteria in the skin. In addition to high-tech formulas, organic and all-round-natural prestige products will sweep us off our feet, offering a healthier alternative to other brands that potentially contain harmful chemicals. A bit weirder treatments called “vampire facials” became a trend thanks to celebrities, and they will gain more popularity in 2018. Non-invasive anti-age and various laser treatments won’t fall behind, as they are becoming more budget-friendly.

Non-surgical Nose Corrections

 

Rhinoplasty can now be performed without the surgery and the painful recovery period. The procedure is done within around 30 minutes or less, and most importantly – the downtime period is significantly shortened compared to the traditional rhinoplasty. Using specific injection (contains calcium and cellulose), any bumps or imperfections are easily resolved, and the wanted appearance and symmetry achieved. The procedure takes one’s nose more straight and appealing: the nose “blends” into the face once the proportions are restored. Depending on the type of filler used, results can last up to two years.

Exciting cosmetic treatment trends lie ahead in 2018! Of course, beauty is a more complex concept that cannot be brought down just to our physique. But looking good contributes to feeling good. Invest some time in pampering or get rid of the imperfections that make you feel self-conscious. Just remember to do it for yourself and to feel more comfortable in your own skin – never for someone else.
