Fox Eye Thread Lift, Russian Lips, Brow Lift, Jawline Enhancement. Have these trends come to an end?
2020 saw a rise in “new” trends, many of which were pre-existing procedures that were either tweaked or modified and rebranded, attracting new audiences.
Through the means of social platforms like Instagram and TikTok, these trends captivated a global audience, boosting treatment opportunities for Cosmetic Procedure clinics, worldwide.
Settling into a new year, 2021 has us noticing a decrease in inquiries for Fox Eyes, Russian Lips, and Jawline Enhancement (for women anyway). As these once in-demand procedures dwindle, more and more influencers and celebrities have been seen sporting a more natural look. The focus seems to have shifted, to age prevention and achieving and maintaining quality skin, rather than noticeable enhancements.
What’s in-store for the rest of 2021
After having the chance to re-examine our beauty habits during a time where we were stuck behind Zoom calls with limited face-to-face socialising, the cosmetic and aesthetic industry is believed to have one of its biggest years ahead.
We spoke to Dr. Glenn Murray to get his insight into what to expect trend-wise this year. Dr. Murray predicts the following five trends and treatments will be bigger than ever in 2021:
A non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting microdoses of wrinkle relaxants into the targeted areas of concern. As opposed to regular wrinkle relaxer treatments, this alternative leaves the skin feeling refreshed with movement still present in the face. It is recommended that clients leave longer gaps between treatments to ensure a more subtle and natural result is achieved and maintained.
It’s important to note that Babytox is not for everyone as some may think that the results are too subtle and want to achieve a longer-lasting result. As with all treatments, results may vary so it is important to talk with your doctor about what you are wanting to achieve first. Babytox can be especially suited for delicate areas of the face, such as the crow’s feet where a subtle treatment is more effective.
A non-surgical procedure also known as Micro Filler involves injecting microdoses of dermal filler over a larger area to give a fresh, hydrated look to the skin without altering the natural shape of the face. In younger skin, the skin booster can give an airbrushed or filtered appearance to the skin. In older skin, the skin booster can reduce the ‘crepey’ skin commonly experienced. The overall treatment reduces fine lines and improves the overall quality and texture of the skin requiring no downtime and following a treatment course, results should last up to 9 months.
Similar to ‘Babytox’ Skin Boosters are a trend set to continue in 2021 as it is a subtle treatment, designed to improve the skin’s overall quality, without creating the ‘frozen look’ that was once sought after.
Another non-surgical procedure involves the pulling of the outer brow using invisible threads inserted under the skin via needles. The procedure takes around 30 minutes, recovery time is minimal, and the results vary depending on the client and the treatment variant, but in cases where a suture has been used, results are expected to last approximately 12 months. This treatment achieves a fresh, awake, and more open upper eyelid without the need for surgery and has been taking the social media world by storm.
Absolute Cosmetic Medicine was the first clinic in WA to offer this treatment in late 2020 and we saw several clients enquiring embracing the trend, eager to emulate fashion models, Bella Hadid & Kendall Jenner’s cat-like appearance. Having specialized in cosmetic threading since their introduction into the Australian market, the Fox Eye trend was a natural progression for the business.
A common theme developing with new treatments is the minimalist approach, where less is more. Clients are wanting to achieve a more natural look with the appearance of flawless skin. For those with problematic skin, an effective acne treatment such as Kleresca is a welcome revelation.
The Kleresca Acne Treatment uses a photo converter gel and LED light to kill bacteria in the skin, initiate healing, and stimulate collagen build-up, which may be beneficial in the repairing of acne scars. This treatment requires two sessions a week for 6 weeks for clients to see continuous improvement over the next 6-12 months. This non-invasive treatment is popular amongst patients that are looking to improve their confidence and achieve unbelievable results.
A brand new non-surgical hair loss treatment, that is designed to halt and improve male and female hair loss, pattern baldness, and alopecia. The procedure involves extracting 3-5 tissue samples from the scalp and then placing them into the Regenera machine which grinds the sample into a solution with powerful regenerative properties, which is then injected back into the patient’s scalp. This treatment is a game-changer for patients looking to regrow their hair, without going under the knife.
Dr. Murray’s predictions prove clear that 2021 will be a year that focuses on the subtle tweak, to softly enhance our own features, focus on the quality of our skin, and achieve more realistic, natural results.
