The Top 5 Trends In Aesthetics To Get Up To Speed With In 2019

You’ll want to keep your doctor on speed dial…

Whenever a new year rolls around, there’s always a sense of anticipation and excitement that we’re given a chance to start over and do things right this time (new hairdo, anyone?). The same can be said when it comes to home organisation, the maintenance of our personal relationships as well as how well we take care of ourselves. In fact, interest in non-invasive aesthetic treatments has been on a steady increase for the past couple of years, and women (and men) are more open about “having work done” on their faces and bodies in order to look better. On top of that, as our world becomes increasingly fast-paced, the demand for maximum results with minimum down time is also becoming one of the top concerns among those who seek out non-invasive aesthetic treatments.

So whether you’re well-versed with aesthetic treatments or starting to consider them, we picked the brain of Dr Douglas Wu, a double board-certified dermatologist in both Canada and the USA, for the key trends in aesthetics you need to know about in 2019:

#1: Pre-juvenation

Yes, you read that right. Instead of turning to aesthetic treatments only when there’s a need to correct more advanced signs of ageing, more and more patients are seeking out these high-performance therapies to enhance and prolong their youth. According to Dr Wu, people are leaning towards the “concept of maintenance or prevention to stave off these symptoms of ageing for as long as you can”. This means that the patients of aesthetic treatments are becoming younger, and starting to consider aesthetic treatments as preventative measures from their early 30s or even late 20s.

#2: Wider Use Of Rejuvenating Technology

While there’s no shortage of rejuvenation treatments that help tighten and firm sagging skin on the face, body-focused treatments are relatively lacking in options. According to Dr Wu, there will be more non-invasive body tightening procedures available to the market as more rejuvenation treatments that are currently designed for the face and neck, are adapted for use on the body, which will then balance out the options available for face and body.
