CoolSculpting treatment explained

In quest of a thinner body

It might not be too much of an exaggeration to claim that most people are unhappy with their body shape. Getting thinner is an aesthetic goal that many of us aspire to, especially at the beginning of a new year when we’re setting resolutions for the months ahead.

Body dysmorphic disorder perhaps accounts for the growing demand for CoolSculpting – the non-surgical fat freezing procedure. CoolSculpting is an alternative to surgical treatments such as liposuction, undertaken by trained technicians.

If you’re curious to learn how CoolSculpting works, you’ve come to the right place. Here are your questions answered…

What exactly is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting involves a specialist vacuum-like, precisely controlled applicator which suctions targeted fat cells under the skin on areas such as your chin and jawline, thighs, abdomen, upper arms, flanks, back and buttocks. Once the machine is removed, your technician quickly massages out the ‘frozen’ areas. Your fat cells are essentially deep frozen – they die and are naturally expelled via your lymphatic system and metabolism process.

Are CoolSculpting results permanent?

In a word, no! While the fat that’s died won’t come back, fat can still grow if you gain weight. As part of the process, expect to be weighed before and after treatment. If you gain a few pounds, results will wear off. Treatment providers will promise more permanent results if you embark upon more than one set of treatment. Two or three sessions are recommended for larger areas.

Is CoolSculpting designed for areas large and small?

Following on from the above, some clarity. In theory, CoolSculpting can be used on any fatty area. In reality, it can prove difficult to administer to smaller areas due to the size of the applicators. Bigger, stubborn areas of fat are better suited to the CoolSculpting devices.

Will I instantly look better after CoolSculpting?

Possibly but not definitely. It’s unlikely you’ll look thinner walking out of your first treatment. The actual process takes time. As a general rule of thumb, 20-25% of fat’s reduced after two sessions and you’ll see the best results three to six months after this second session. Patience is a necessity.

Does CoolSculpting hurt?

CoolSculpting is advertised as being non-painful. The actual procedure might cause a level of discomfort because it’s extremely cold. The most uncomfortable part is the post-application massage as you could potentially feel the pressure only rather than the touch itself, thanks to the body area being icy-cold at this stage.

Are there side effects from CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting supposedly eliminates only fat cells and doesn’t impact other adjacent tissue, unlike certain other methods of fat reduction. It should allow for the immediate return to normal activities although redness may appear in the treated area, lasting from between a few minutes to a few hours. Some localised bruising or swelling may occur too – this is said to clear within a few weeks. A temporary dulling of sensation in the treated area has also been reported, lasting several weeks as well.

As with any beauty treatment, then, adverse reactions are not inconceivable. In the case of CoolSculpting, this could involve frostbite-type symptoms in addition to the aforementioned pain. To avoid any mishaps, check that your technician is using a legitimate CoolSculpting machine, ask about possible side effects and only proceed if your fears are alleviated. CoolSculpting is supported by extensive research and medical papers. Seek these out so that you’re fully informed ahead of your appointment.

Hand lifts: Removing all signs of ageing

Youthful hands are the epitome of beauty

In an era where we undergo beauty treatments on pretty much every part of our bodies in an attempt to reverse the signs of ageing and abolish perceived imperfections, our hands can typically be overlooked in our beauty regimes. But not anymore, so it seems.

When you think about it, our hands are exposed to the elements, and show visible signs of wear and tear as we grow older. Our hands are actually the biggest giveaway of how old we are, with brown spots, tendons, veins and wrinkly skin not uncommon.

If you worry about the appearance of your hands, you may be keen to learn about hand lift treatments. We’re here to enlighten you in what’s involved. There are two types of hand lifts, these being:

1. Injectable fillers

The same as anywhere else on our body that’s subjected to fillers, injections work to restore volume thereby making blood vessels and tendons less prominent. Typically, these fillers are hyaluronic acid which dissolve naturally over time and last for anything between nine months to two years.

With any injectables, side effects are a possibility including pain or discomfort and swelling. While this might sound bearable, it’s important to know that extreme reactions can happen from filler treatments. Although not specifically related to hand lifts, our ‘Horrific results from cheap £300 lip filler jabs’ and ‘Lip fillers disaster for hospitalised teenager’ blogs are essential background reading.

2. Laser therapy

The second hand lift option is laser therapy which uses light and heat to penetrate the dermis and stimulate collagen production. The result? Supposedly, plumper-looking skin, diminished lines and removed pigmentation.

To clarify, laser therapy is a pen-like device that’s attached to a machine, rolled over your hands in a grid pattern. This process itself can hurt and the heat setting adjusted if too painful. The skin will continue to feel sensitive for up to 24 hours post-treatment as well.

It’s advisable to undergo patch testing a couple of days before the main treatment in order to check for adverse reactions. A reputable beauty therapist will recommend doing so. This way, you’ll avoid nasty surprises and the pain that accompanies your body’s allergic response.

In sum, if you need a morale boost courtesy of more-youthful hands, this treatment could be right up your street, but make sure you’re au fait with all of the associated risks and be prepared to make a claim against your beauty therapist or salon if things go badly wrong. Our team comprises specialist solicitors for beauty salon accident claims.

Not heard of profile rebalancing? You have now!

Profile rebalancing comprising facial injectables

Here in the UK, beauty treatments and tweakments continue to rise in popularity with rapid speed. According to latest figures, the dermal filler and Botox industry is worth £2.75 billion a year, accounting for nine out of ten cosmetic procedures.

Facial injectables promise all manner of enhancements, not just to the lips, but under the eyes, in the upper bridge, to the chin and on the forehead. As reported on Glamour Magazine’s website, you can improve these facial areas, and achieve ‘natural results’ and ‘more symmetrical, harmonised features’, courtesy of profile rebalancing.

Profile rebalancing explained

Profile rebalancing works by injecting hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to various sections of the face – including the nose, lips, cheeks, chin and forehead, as mentioned above. Numbing cream is applied first for pain relief before a fine needle is used to inject small amounts of filler.

The same as any treatment of this type, people will react differently. For a general rule of thumb, you can expect results to last for six to twelve months; not as long for the lips, say two to three months.

The side effects of profile rebalancing

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body which means the fillers should dissolve over time. Although a supposedly minimally intrusive treatment, you can still experience pain, tenderness and bruising – not only during application but for up to two weeks thereafter. The right post-treatment care is essential to avoid side effects and worsening pain levels.

If you’re keen to trial this new(ish) beauty trend, always do your research fully and seek out an expert therapist. You’ll pay more for the service but it’s worth it in the longer run.

While treatments such as profile rebalancing are safer alternatives to full-on plastic surgery, they do still carry risks. You should understand these upfront. Armed with the warts-and-all facts and figures, you may decide that you prefer to embrace your natural beauty instead, despite the potentially unwelcome introduction of fine lines and wrinkles, lessening volume and other minor imperfections.

The other thing you need to know is what to do if your treatment goes wrong. That’s where your Beauty Treatment Claims team comes in. Simply contact us to discuss next steps towards making a compensation claim against your beauty therapist.

Laser eyelash lift, anyone?

Craving beautiful eyelashes you don’t need to hide?

Following on from our recent ‘Lip fillers for Christmas? Think twice!’ blog, are you considering having any last-minute beauty treatments to look your best on Christmas Day and through the imminent seasonal festivities? If you’ve ever imagined long, curly, lustrous eyelashes without the daily tedium of mascara application and eyelash curling in the morning followed by washing off courtesy of make up remover in the evening, eyelash lifts might be on your Yuletide pampering agenda.

For the uninitiated, this is the cosmetic procedure whereby a CO2 laser is used to make small ablations – precise areas of damage – to the top layer of skin above the lash line causing upwards-pointing eyelashes instead of straight forwards or downwards-facing. Results are said to last for a year or more.

Although supposedly non-invasive, minimally painful and done in a controlled way to ensure eye protection, just as with any aesthetic beauty treatment, things can go wrong. Where lasers are concerned, particularly, there are risks – scarring, blistering, burns and infections amongst them. At best, you can expect discomfort and tenderness for a few days afterwards.

While we acknowledge lifted lashes which give the appearance of brighter, wider eyes may sound appealing at Christmas and throughout the year, don’t rush ahead and book your beauty salon appointment without doing your research first. Ask questions about safety precautions and potential side effects, and choose a therapist who’s recommended rather than deciding on price alone. As anyone who’s read our blog before knows, if the price quoted for a treatment seems too good to be true, it probably is.

A useful starting point is taking a look at some of our earlier articles about eyelashes, namely ‘False eyelashes warning’ and ‘10 tips for wedding-perfect eyelashes’.

Remember, too, our legal team can help you to make a claim against your beauty therapist or salon in the event of negligence and injury.

Botox Bill now in force

Botulinum Toxin

On 1st October 2021, the Botulinum Toxin and Cosmetic Fillers (Children) Act 2021 was made law, thereby preventing non-surgical cosmetic treatments involving Botox and other chemicals to be performed on anyone under the age of 18.

And not before time, in our opinion. Remember our ‘Wild West beauty sector needs regulating’, ‘Dermal fillers, lip fillers, Botox – Government launches information campaign to raise awareness of risks’ and ‘The dangers of unregulated beauty treatments’ blogs on this self-same subject?

Like many supposedly non-intrusive, safe beauty treatments, Botox and filler injections can be seriously damaging to individuals of all ages, especially children. Harm caused can be anything from blindness and blood clots to necrosis of facial tissue (in which skin tissues die) and paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (disfigurement by hardened masses), plus many more life-changing side effects besides.

If Save Face and Department of Health figures are anything to go by, between 41,000 and 70,000 filler-type treatments were performed on under 18s in 2020 alone. The result is children’s lives being ruined because of beauty treatments gone wrong.

The issue of over 18s suffering at the hands of their beauty therapist remains and calls for action with regards to further industry regulation continue. Until such time that stricter regulation and legislation is introduced, the general public is still at risk of unscrupulous, unprofessional practitioners. If you’ve ever visited a beauty salon, this includes you.

Watch this space to find out what’s next for the aesthetics sector. In the meantime, if you’ve been hurt by your therapist – experiencing allergic reactions, emotional trauma or other injury in the process – make a claim after beauty salon negligence by emailing, calling 0800 141 3682 or 0333 202 6560, or completing our online enquiry form.

Popular 2021 beauty treatments

Rise in ‘Brotox’ and ‘Instaman’ beauty trends

From Botox and chemical peels to lip fillers and microneedling, if you’re wondering what’s hot and what’s not in beauty this year, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve been analysing research undertaken by Dr Yusra Clinic in its ‘Beautified Britain Index: The Skin Report’, based on data drawn from Google searches, Google trends, news stories, professional industry bodies, consumer surveys and social media trends in order to ascertain what the post-pandemic beauty industry looks like.

In the period up to July 2021, there was an increase of 309% in Google searches for ‘skin care’, 89% in ‘best skin care’, 50% in ‘tweakments’ and 50% in ‘aesthetic treatments’. It seems that our skin habits have changed drastically during the past 19-plus months since Covid-19 arrived on the scene, driven largely by what we’ve all been through – endless Zoom calls, focus on social media and a plethora of psychological problems.

Here’s what you can expect to see beauty-wise throughout the rest of 2021 and into 2022…


It’s anticipated that the non-surgical market will be worth £3 billion by 2024. Apparently, 1 in 4 people would now consider having an aesthetic treatment, or tweakment, to give their skin a boost. It’s not necessarily about anything noticeable – just subtle non-surgical procedures to create radiance.

Zoom face adjustments

Called multiple things – Zoom face, tech neck, pandemic droop, lockdown face whatever – all the time we’ve spent in online meetings, seeing our own faces reflected back to us warts-and-all on a computer screen, has caused multiple face and body insecurities. There’s huge demand for treatments such as Botox, fillers, skin resurfacing, neck rejuvenation and jawline contouring – both surgical and non-surgical.

Glow look

Glowing, shiny, radiant skin is a trending topic on social media platforms. To quote some figures, the #glowup hashtag has generated 29.6 billion views on TikTok and 5.3 million views on Instagram. Skin booster injections are on the rise – these smoothen the skin texture, address fine lines and wrinkles, and add luminosity.


There are also some trends towards embracing what nature’s provided and avoiding the over-done Instagram face. With celebrity no make-up selfies gathering momentum, the general public are seeking to emulate this pared-down beauty. This means getting fillers removed – lip, chin and cheek fillers – as well as having hyaluronic acid skin-booster injections for radiance.

Skincare-enhancing technology

The technology gadgets market is set to grow by 7.5% over the next five years, thanks to individuals wanting a spa-level experience at home and in-clinic treatments like fibre optic lasers for skin tightening and microneedling device for resolving textural skin issues. Amongst other options are cleansing wands, LED masks, facial cryotherapy, electrical muscle stimulation and Coolsculpting treatments.

Male grooming

The male grooming market is predicted to reach $166 billion in 2022. Sought-after male tweakments comprise injectable fillers and non-surgical nose jobs to improve the facial profile and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and lip fillers for added volume, to name a few. The term ‘Brotox’ has generated 4.9 million Instagram views with ‘Instaman’ standing at 217.3 thousand.

And more…

From hybrid treatments whereby clients are having virtual pre- and post-treatment consultations via video call to skinimalism which celebrates our imperfections in all their forms to acne (or ‘maskne’) problematic skin conditions accelerated by the pandemic, you can discover the full findings of Dr Yusra Clinic’s findings in their entirety at

At this stage, it’s important to highlight what can go wrong during beauty treatments, including those of the non-surgical variety. Our ‘Wild West beauty sector needs regulating’ and ‘The dangers of unregulated beauty treatments’ blogs are real eye openers. Allergic reactions, disfigurement, emotional trauma and infections are not uncommon.

The worrying rise of the ‘alienisation’ beauty trend

Overfilling causes ‘alien’ face appearance

Unrealistic beauty standards are depicted everywhere. Whether it’s heavily Photoshopped magazine cover photographs or overly filtered Instagram uploads, we’re all guilty of falling for them even when we know they’re not true to life.

The extreme editing of photos of celebrities, influencers and models leaves many of us battling identity issues in our quest to emulate similar perfection which is simply unattainable. There’s no point in comparing ourselves to exquisitely sculpted and immaculately made-up famous people because these media-spotlighted images are fake.

As if low self esteem, negative thinking and body dysmorphia aren’t enough to contend with, now there’s another toxic beauty trend to live up to… fillers. Or, to be more accurate, overfilling.

To clarify, more and more patients are undergoing filler treatments, often badly placed and overdone, which is resulting in a warped appearance that’s become the new normal in beauty circles.

According to a London-based cosmetic surgeon, lack of regulations, monetary greed, unscrupulous practitioners and excessive plastic surgery is to blame for brainwashing society into believing an alienised face is the new perfection-personified ideal. This latest perception drift is spreading at epidemic rates and presents significant risks to both our physical and emotional wellbeing.

To tackle the growing problem of alienisation, it’s the responsibility of beauty therapists and cosmetic surgeons to act always with a duty of care towards clients. It’s also the responsibility of clients to understand treatments being undertaken along with all of their attendant dangers, and to choose trustworthy therapists or surgeons to do the work.

As beauty treatment claims experts, we feel it’s our responsibility to highlight negligent, unprofessional practices so that you can avoid disfigurement and emotional trauma, which are just two of the side effects of being let down by your beauty salon or clinic.

Your post-lockdown wax treatment explained

What to expect at your next waxing treatment

The last lockdown ended in March 2021, with salons reopen from 12th April 2021, but lots of us still haven’t yet ventured back to the beauty therapist. It’ll come as no surprise to learn that the salon experience is different now to how it was before Covid. These changes are part of keeping salon clients and staff safe in our nationwide coronavirus response.

As we’re now in the midst of peak holiday time, one of the most popular beauty treatments currently is waxes. After all, our bodies need to get beach (or poolside!) ready. So, that’s the focus here – waxing – and what to expect at your next appointment. Without further ado…

1. More pain

Did you resort to shaving during lockdown to keep on top of hair regrowth? If yes, your first wax may be more painful than previously. That’s because shaving strengthens the hair and makes the skin more sensitive in contrast to waxing which thins and softens the hair. Don’t worry, though, you won’t have totally undone all your time spent waxing pre-Covid. You’ll soon be back to where you were, once you’ve overcome any initial discomfort.

2. Limited services

Salons will be operating at lower capacity which means that not all services will be on offer and not all products available to choose from. If you’re accustomed to picking a certain type of wax, be prepared to discover it’s temporarily out of use, for example hot wax only, as cold wax could pose a higher risk of transmitting bacteria.

3. PPE gear for salon staff

The safeguarding measures likely to be in place include your therapist wearing personal protective equipment in the form of gloves, disposable aprons and masks or visors. This should be somewhat familiar if you’ve visited your hair salon post-lockdown; although it’s likely to be on a bigger scale at the beauty salon due to the greater degree of physical contact involved in treatments.

4. Checks undertaken on salon clients

In order to maintain a safe environment for each client, you may have your temperature taken using an infrared thermometer as well as being asked questions regarding your health and that of your immediate family, to check for evidence of Covid-19 symptoms. Even though mask wearing restrictions were lifted on 19th July, you might be requested to wear a mask too, due to the close-contact nature of the beauty industry.

5. Punctuality requirements

As already mentioned, salons are contending with less capacity to comply with social distancing. You’ll need to turn up on time and not cancel at the last minute. There could be new 24-48 hour notice periods in force for rescheduling appointments. While arriving on time is mandatory, being early is an issue. You may have to wait outside until your allocated appointment slot due to limitations on the number of people in the salon at any one time.

6. Belongings and payments

You could be asked to bring along fewer belongings – bags and coats – as they’re considered an unnecessary additional contact point. No cloakroom service will be the norm for the foreseeable future. Payment will probably be by card rather than cash for the same reasons of reducing contact – in this case, relating to banknotes and coins.

Rather than these salon transformations being a bad thing, they actually combine to make your salon visit more efficient, sleek and professional. You’ll feel all the better for it. And safer too.

Ending with a note of advice, to prepare for your salon wax job, make sure your hair is sufficiently long (the recommendation is around 1cm) so that the wax sticks. It’s also a good idea to gently exfoliate with a body scrub or mitt so that there’s less wax-skin contact to lessen the pain.

A word of warning too, to guarantee your waxing treatment goes to plan, select a reputable beauty therapist ideally from a recommendation. We’re specialist legal advisors in claims against beauty therapists and salons and see what happens when waxing goes awry – the side effects range from redness and inflammation to bruised and burned skin.

Anyone who suffers harm by their beauty therapist is invited to speak to our team about making a claim for beauty salon negligence. Get in touch by emailing, calling 0800 141 3682 or 0333 202 6560, or completing our online enquiry form.

10 tips for wedding-perfect eyelashes

Lash extensions are one consideration for your wedding day

Peak wedding season is upon us. As budding brides meticulously plan for their big day, one of the many preparatory tasks is… eyelashes! Lash extensions may seem a small consideration in the grand scheme of your wedding day arrangements but it’s important to get it right so that you feel on top of the world for your special event.

We’ve helpfully compiled these ten top tips to make sure your lashes look picture-perfect on your wedding:

1. Choose natural rather than dramatic
While it might be tempting to choose long, thick lashes, this doesn’t translate well when it comes to a classic wedding. The mantra here is ‘less is more’. Lashes should suit your face and be so flattering that most people will assume they’re real. If you start off small, you can always ask for extra volume later. It’s less easy to rectify lashes that are excessive to begin with.

2. Avoid coloured lashes
Following on from #1, go for jet black or brown lashes rather than experimenting with coloured lashes for all of the same reasons of natural being the most desirable style choice for the occasion. And it doesn’t mean they’re any less striking.

3. Find a lash technician by recommendation
Word of mouth is best when it comes to your beauty therapist. If someone you know and trust recommends their technician, you can’t go far wrong. You may notice a friend or colleague’s lash extensions looking great; if so, ask who they use. This is preferable to locating a therapist via a Google search as it’s a leap of faith.

The worst thing you can do is visit an inexperienced, unqualified or inattentive beauty technician. Lack of care can result in swelling, blistering and itchiness around the eyelids. Also, damage to your eyelash hair follicles can lead to permanent hair loss.

4. Have a trial run
While we kicked off this blog by stating wedding season is underway, it’s actually better to prepare for your ideal lashes way ahead of time. If you’re getting married in the summer, get your lashes done the previous summer to see how they fare in the weather conditions. You’re giving yourself plenty of opportunity to try have another rerun in order to correct what was wrong the first time around.

Reflecting once again on the issue of a negligent technician, all new clients should be offered a skin patch test to check for any potential allergic chemical reaction upfront. You see, there are chemicals in the adhesives and gel pads used to apply lash extensions. This test should ideally take place 24 to 48 hours before your scheduled treatment.

5. Get the final job done in a timely manner too
If you’re getting married in the UK, get your final lashes applied three to four days ahead so they’re still in good shape for your wedding. If you’re getting married abroad, leave it as late as possible to your flight before applying your lashes as it could still be a week or more before your actual wedding. Have an oil-free mascara to hand in case you need a lash top-up when the day arrives.

6. Look for silk or synthetic mink lashes
These varieties of lashes are pre-curled and will keep their shape whereas some types can drop their curled shape after contact with water, heat and other elements. It’s impossible to lock yourself away in the run up to your wedding. Instead, limit the impact of exposure to the elements in this way.

7. Steer clear of oily beauty products
To maximise the staying power of your newly applied lashes, stay away from oily items such as sunblocks, eye creams, cleansers, facemasks and the like. Oils are bad news if you want your lashes to last (which you do!).

8. Don’t be tempted by a budget buy
Money might be flying out of your bank account as if there’s no tomorrow with all of your wedding day purchases but don’t go for budget lashes. It’s a decision you’ll come to regret. If the price looks too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t compromise on your lash technician’s skill. Quality and experience are worth paying over the odds for.

Applying lash extensions is a technically precise procedure. With an unskilled technician, all manner of problems can arise, from failing to cover the upper or lower eyelashes sufficiently thereby causing them to get glued together by adhesive to fumes accidentally entering the eye resulting in severe irritation and inflammation. Further costly treatments will be needed to fix these errors. Spending as minimal an amount as possible in the first place is false economy and a danger to your health.

9. Know what to do if you react badly
As already intimated, a bodily reaction to the glue or adhesive used to apply false lashes is always a possibility, especially if you select a technician of ill-repute as a cost-cutting exercise. If a reaction occurs, remove the extensions, seek medical treatment and instruct an injury claims expert (see below).

10. Consider investing in good mascara and eyelash curler
Of course, there’s the option of simply buying a good mascara along with an eyelash curler as a safer alternative to lash extensions. You can still achieve longer, fuller-looking lashes without any of the accompanying risks.

As experts in claims against beauty therapists and salons, we know more than anyone what happens when a beauty treatment has gone wrong. By following our advice, you’ll prevent this happening to you.

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.
