Beauty and skincare trends change each year. However, the goal to look young and fight aging is something that every adult has been aiming for since time immemorial.
The good news is that every year, there are new treatments introduced in the market that can help you look younger than your actual age. Also, all skincare brands constantly improve their products to ensure that they are effective and safe for everyone to use.
If you own a beauty or medical aesthetic center, you will do well to include some additional anti-aging solutions to your list of services. These skincare treatments are expected to gain popularity this year and it will work to your advantage if you offer them to your clients as soon as possible.
A leading distributor of skincare products and medical equipment in Dubai lists below the top five non-surgical anti-aging treatments that are expected to trend this year, which you should consider investing in:
1. Skin Resurfacing
Skin resurfacing treatments have been some of the most popular anti-aging treatments for years. If you do not offer this skincare solution yet, doing so now can help propel your business.
This skincare treatment improves complexion by removing the damaged outer layers of the skin that come in the form of age spots, discoloration, scars, and wrinkles without surgery.
As a result, healthier, youthful-looking skin is uncovered.
The treatment also encourages the growth of new, healthy skin cells, which allows patients to have a clearer, glowing complexion.
Skin resurfacing treatments use different technologies. The most popular ones include laser, NanoFractional radio frequency (RF), and intense pulsed light (IPL).
Below is an overview of these three skin resurfacing treatments:
Laser skin resurfacing
This treatment, explain experts at Hair and Skin Science Brisbane uses highly concentrated beams of light energy to minimize fine lines or wrinkles, acne, and surgical scars. It also treats brown spots and other discoloration to improve the skin’s appearance, tone, and texture.
Laser skin resurfacing uses ablative or non-ablative lasers. An ablative laser removes the outer layers of skin to encourage new skin to heal in its place, while the non-ablative type heats the cells underneath the surface to promote new collagen growth.
CO2 or erbium lasers are examples of ablative lasers. They effectively remove scars, warts, and deep wrinkles.
Nano Fractional Radio Frequency (RF)
NanoFractional RF treatment is one of the newest skin resurfacing technologies. It uses tiny pins to deliver heat painlessly and safely through the skin’s surface to repair noticeable signs of aging and damage.
NanoFractional RF treats acne scars, wrinkles, blemishes, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, brown and red spots, and rough or uneven skin tone. It also enhances the appearance of stretch marks and other textural irregularities.
Intense pulsed light (IPL)
This non-ablative treatment uses a wide spectrum of light wavelengths, delivered in short pulses, to treat various issues. It absorbs excessive red and brown pigments in the skin to even out complexion and stimulates collagen production to improve skin tone.
IPL can treat age spots, fine lines, freckles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and texture problems.
2. Non-Surgical Facelift
A surgical facelift lifts and firms sagging facial tissues to restore a youthful facial appearance. Since it requires surgery, it is a complex procedure and not everyone is a suitable candidate for it.
For people who do not want to undergo a surgical facelift or are not advised to do so, there are non-surgical anti-aging treatments to consider. Some non-invasive procedures lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck, and cleavage.
A non-surgical facelift treatment uses ultrasound energy to boost the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This causes a lifting effect on the skin and muscle layers, thus tightening and enhancing the skin and facial features.
A non-invasive facelift is often recommended for people with early sagging or lax skin. These include lowered brows, sagging under the chin and jawline, loose skin on the neck, and lines and wrinkles on the chest.
3. Dermal Fillers
Aging causes the loss of the skin’s natural collagen and hyaluronic acid. This results in reduced elasticity, which causes the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, and jawline and is the reason why so many collagen peptides supplements have become so popular.
Dermal fillers are temporary anti-aging treatments that erase or reduce wrinkles, soften facial creases and appearance of recessed scars, enhance shallow contours, and plump thin lips.
Dermal fillers are injected and, thus, are non-surgical. With regular, continuous treatment, they provide natural-looking and long-lasting results.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are the most recommended type since they are less likely to result in allergic reactions.
4. Botox Injections
Botox injections have been some of the most popular non-surgical anti-aging solutions for years.
When botox is injected into the skin, it stops the movement of muscles temporarily. Because of this, it prevents wrinkles from developing or becoming worse.
Botox injections help treat frown lines and wrinkles around the eyes in adults temporarily. They also reduce and prevent creases on the forehead and corners of the mouth.
Since it is a short-term solution, patients have to get this treatment repeatedly.
5. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are anti-aging skincare treatments that can be done inside and outside clinics. Aside from offering this service, you can also sell products that customers can buy.
Chemical peels are used on the face and neck to improve the appearance of aging skin. They exfoliate the outer layer of old skin and treat wrinkles and the fine lines around the mouth and eyes.
Chemical peels also reduce age spots and improve the tone and texture of the skin.
There are three types of chemical peels:
This treatment contains trichloroacetic acid or phenol acid, which deeply penetrates the middle layer of skin. It removes damaged skin cells to reduce moderate fine lines, age spots, freckles, and shallow scars. This facial procedure should only be performed once.
Medium peel products contain glycolic or trichloroacetic acid, which penetrates the outer and middle layers of skin and removes damaged skin cells. They improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, and moderate skin discoloration.
With this treatment, alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate the outer layer of skin and exfoliate the rough skin or discoloration on the face, neck, chest, or hands. It is a mild type of peel recommended for people undergoing this procedure for the first time.
Making the right investments is an essential element of improving the performance of your aesthetic business. If you want to offer new anti-aging treatments, put these five on the top of your list.
