If you are thinking of doing some cosmetic retouching, take a look at the most in-demand treatments:
- hyaluronic acid
- lip augmentation
- jaw filler
We have compiled the most innovative aesthetic medicine treatments, which according to experts will be the most in-demand during 2021.
A classic: botox
First up is botox, which continues to grow in popularity year after year, due to its versatility. It is used to temporarily eliminate expression lines, since it paralyses the muscles, avoiding the production of movement wrinkles, and its effect lasts approximately 5 months. Botox anti wrinkle injections are common as a preventive treatment to delay the formation of wrinkles. And their popularity will no doubt continue due to their low cost and low risk.
If you are looking to tighten the skin and smooth fine lines, facial rejuvenation with Profhilo is one of the newest treatments. It is based on the use of hyaluronic acid in an ultra-pure grade to rejuvenate the face.
Lip augmentation has seen a massive boom in the last 5 years. Hyaluronic acid is injected into the lips to increase their thickness, enhance contour, lift the corners and hydrate. The result lasts approximately 12 months.
Another novel technique is the lip lift, the technique to achieve fuller lips in a permanent (and minimally invasive) way. It is especially recommended for those who seek to eliminate perioral wrinkles, known as barcodes.
The jaw filler will be one of the most popular of the year, especially for men. Over the years, the facial contour loses definition and the jawline becomes blurred. For this reason, many people resort to this treatment.
Platelet-rich plasma treatment
Another of the most in-demand (and a favourite of the celebs) is the platelet-rich plasma treatment. It is obtained from a small sample of the patient’s blood, which is used to enhance, stimulate and accelerate tissue regeneration. It is also used to stop hair loss and promote hair regeneration in those who suffer from thinning hair.
Liposuction and abdominoplasty
Procedures like liposuction and tummy tucks take a back seat and non-invasive options will be in greater demand: temperature-based fat reduction, skin tightening, muscle enhancements, and even cellulite-reducing injectables will be much sought after.
Intralipotherapy is one of the most innovative treatments and is indicated for the reduction of localised fat deposits without surgery. It consists of injecting deoxycholic acid in areas with excess fat to eliminate it (this substance helps to make fat more liquid and to expel it easily from the body through the lymphatic system).
Now that we have briefly explained what each of these treatments consists of, we recommend you go to a doctor who specialises in these treatments so that they can make a diagnosis of your specific case and your needs.
Be sure to learn all you can about the proposed procedure. Ask for recommendations from friends or people you know that have already undergone similar treatments.
