2020 beauty treatment trends

Beauty treatments which are popular in 2020

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…

Extreme facials
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.

Body tweakments
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.

Innovative devices
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.

How much do celebrities spend on beauty treatments?

Spending on beauty treatments is rocketing

Did you know that bee venom and placenta facials were even a thing? What about inlaid-crystal manicures? According to the Harper’s Bazaar website, such beauty treatments do exist, cost £thousands (£millions, even!), and the rich and famous appear to pay these extortionate amounts in their quest for beautification without a second thought.

As anyone who’s undergone beauty treatments is aware, some skin, lips and nail beauty regimes are costly. If the regular woman (or man) off the street spends huge sums visiting her (or his) beauty therapist, just imagine how much wealthy celebrities dish out on luxurious treatments to maintain their looks. Their image is, essentially, their trademark, after all.

In today’s blog, you can discover what this reputed extravagant expenditure equates to. For example, apparently Celine Dion spent $2.5 million (£2 million) on a humidifier for her Las Vegas hotel room, Madonna splurged $99,000 (£79K) on an anti-cellulite device and Mila Kunis forked out $8,900 (£7.1K) on a ruby facial.

The other distinguished people featured in Harper’s Bazaar top ten list are Rihanna, Serena Williams, Gigi Hadid, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham and Kate Middleton with treatments ranging from an Evian bath comprising 1,000 litres of spring water to hiring a personal hair stylist on a full-time basis. Even the cheapest treatment cited in this article comes in at $325 (£259) a time.

Whilst the majority of us don’t have the big budgets of our screen, stage and royal stars, spending on beauty treatments is rising in the UK to the tune of around £8-9 billion per year (including hairdressing treatments).

Although none of us is currently in a position to visit our local beauty salon due to lockdown restrictions, when social distancing measures are eventually relaxed and salons open their doors once again, remember to apply caution when embarking upon any treatments.

Should you be considering booking an appointment with your beauty therapist post lockdown – be it lip fillers, Botox, eyebrow and lip liner tattoos, or whatever – make sure you know the risks, ask about potential side effects and find out what to do in the unfortunate circumstance that things go awry.

For the latter – botched beauty treatments – please get in touch with our dedicated team to discuss your next steps.
