What is Aesthetics?
Aesthetics covers various non-surgical advanced treatments, typically beyond the scope of a typical beauty treatment. From microneedling to injectable skin boosters - these cosmetic treatments can improve and accentuate your natural features. These procedures focus on making your skin look more appealing by combating indications of ageing and tightening ageing skin, amongst other ambitions.
Why are Aesthetic treatments so popular?
Due to the treatments being non-surgical, they are safer than surgery, with less chance of side effects and many have zero downtime. Facial aesthetic treatments boost one’s natural beauty and can rectify facial symmetry. They are a safe option that causes minimal pain.
Common examples of aesthetics are dermal fillers, anti wrinkle injections and becoming ever more popular chemical peels. Both dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injections can be tailored to you, with results lasting months and top-ups are regularly available. In the UK the price of anti wrinkle injections ranges from £100-400, which is much cheaper than surgical alternatives, which are arguably permanent with higher levels of risk.
Controversially, the rise in popularity of aesthetics is due to celebrities and their openness about their cosmetic treatments—Kim Kardashian with Vampire Facials or Courteney Cox with anti wrinkle injections. Fans over time have followed in their footsteps, tried similar treatments, and had incredible results.
