Beauty trends change over time. These trends are driven in part by advancements in science and technology. We’re sure that none of us could have imagined using lasers to enhance our appearance even only a few years ago.
On the reverse side of the coin, popularity wanes for treatments proven to have a negative impact on health. Tanning beds are a prime example here. They were a big trend in years gone by until linked closely with skin cancer.
In saying this, even treatments spotlighted as being seriously dangerous if your beauty clinician is careless in their delivery – such as dermal fillers, eyebrow tattoos and permanent lip liners – continue to be embarked upon daily by individuals seeking to improve their looks by any which method.
Plus, there are other types of beauty treatment which remain popular always. Nail art, for instance, is as fashionable today as it ever has been.
Today’s blog is an exploration of beauty trends right here in the UK. Here’s what to look out for in 2020…
Apparently the most-mentioned procedure for 2019 (according to Yelp) was the hydrafacial. Similar to dermabrasion, hydrafacials use a thin-nibbed device to cleanse and hydrate your skin by a process of infusion. It’s essentially a glow-boosting treatment for natural, radiant skin.
Intense skin treatments
Similar results can be achieved with microneedling (needles cause microscopic pinpricks in your skin to stimulate collagen production), dermaplaning (scalpel-like tool for dead skin removal thereby ensuring a smoother complexion) and lasering (wrinkle-reducing alternative to Botox injections), all of which tackle imperfections and generate healthy-looking skin without long recovery times. There’s also ultherapy; a non-surgical collagen-banking treatment to tighten your skin for a more defined jawline and lifted brows.
Where body shape is concerned, trending treatments centre around more muscle, more tone, less fat. To obtain body perfection, various procedures are available for fat reduction, body contouring, muscle toning and tightening. Ranging from microneedling and radiofrequency to serum and oxygen administering, the Harper’s Bazaar website names these treatment options, CoolSculpting, CoolTone and Le Shape amongst them. It’s envisaged that consumers will adopt a mix-and-match approach by choosing a combination of treatments from an ever-extensive menu.
There’s an upsurge in use of devices generally. Whichever the device type (be it radiofrequency, vacuum, laser, LED, pressure) and whatever their purpose (skin re-energiser, hair remover, oxygen applicator), it’s believed that both salon-based and mobile beauty therapists will be investing in equipment so they can offer a wider range of services.
Supercharged spa experiences
Spa days will stay in high demand for couples or friends enjoying special downtime together but there’s a key difference in that the complementary beauty treatments will be aesthetic rather than simply touchy-feely. Clients, then, will not only feel good afterwards, but look good too. No doubt some of the aforementioned treatments will be on offer.
Of course, none of us can indulge in beauty treatments of any kind until COVID-19 lockdown restrictions are fully eased when salons and clinics are re-opened to the public and mobile therapists can once again visit your home. When this time comes, in your overly enthusiastic rush to book an appointment, remember to perform the usual questioning and researching to ensure procedures are safe and will have no nasty side effects.
You also need to know what to do should you suffer harm. This may necessitate contacting your expert Beauty Treatment Claims legal team to claim compensation from a beauty therapist on your behalf. We’re operating the same level of support through this time so you can expect excellent service, as always.
