When the world paused at the start of the global pandemic in early 2020, many elective surgical procedures were put on hold in order to use the space in hospitals for COVID patients as well as use the PPE gear for front line workers. The Aesthetic Society released its yearly Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Statistics for 2020, noting that as pandemic-related restrictions eased- the top procedures performed included liposuction, abdominoplasty, breast augmentation, neurotoxins, dermal fillers and chemical peels. Wish you had a crystal ball and could stay ahead of the hottest beauty treatments that should be on your radar for the upcoming year? With our list of the most popular options to feel more confident, you’ll be able to glide through 2022 the best version of yourself.
Dermal Fillers: For a subtle change that looks like you, only better, dermal fillers that look natural are extremely popular in smoothing wrinkles, chiseling cheekbones, flattening under-eye bags or helping to eliminate dark eye circles and giving a boost of volume to your facial features. Juvederm is a popular, non-surgical filler that helps with the loss of volume and sagging facial skin. Restylane fillers are a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that adds fullness to lips or reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles. Dysport is a medial-grade, purified version of Botulinum toxic type A that softens lines and wrinkles created by muscle action. The possibilities are endless and because fillers are a non-surgical option, there is no downtime needed, making them a perfect lunchtime procedure or used in a combination treatment.
Body Contouring: Stubborn areas of fat are no match for body contouring, using technology like EmSculpt. If a healthy diet and regular exercise just aren’t giving you the results that your efforts should, this non-invasive treatment reduces areas of stubborn body fat while enhancing muscle tone, especially if you’re interested in targeting a specific area of fat. High-intensity focused electromatic technology stimulates muscle contractions in the desired areas, building a more sculpted appearance through these involuntary, intense muscle contractions. Normally, four sessions scheduled two to three days apart will give you the maximum benefit and patients notice results right away, with results continuing to become visible for weeks after your last treatment.
Combination Treatments: For the best outcome, combination treatments address multiple anatomic layers of tissue, giving you results that are natural and believable. The Surgical Eye Refresh will be a popular option in 2022, ideal for patients who want the look of rejuvenation, around the eyes. Three treatments are combined, including a blepharoplasty or surgical approach to opening up the eye area by removing excess skin with injectables to reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and laser resurfacing which gives improved skin texture and a gorgeous glow.
