According to Harpers Bazaar, the benefits of staying at home a little more in recent months haven’t been lost on those debating cosmetic treatments. There has been a rise in non-surgical procedures as clients feel they are more able to enjoy the downtime in their own homes to allow bruising to heal or are able to hide their swelling underneath their mask. With this in mind, we’ve turned to looking at the post lockdown trends that have emerged and how this will benefit the aesthetics industry.
While many beauty treatments, such as hair and nails, can be replicated at home, many clients have had to adapt to seeing their natural face which may have otherwise already had an appointment with their aesthetician. Due to the ‘zoom boom’, we’re now seeing a rise in filler first-timers who may have seen their facial shape more often than usual. This has resulted in many newcomers enquiring and starting their dermal filler journey following COVID-19.
In recent years, lip tweakments have been the most common procedure within the clinic however, with the new norm of masks, this may be set to change. With the lower half of the face now covered for a larger amount of time than usual, many clients are now looking to focus on their eyes, brows and temples to show more expression.
Because of the increase in UV light from technology paired with the warmer than average weather we’ve received over lockdown, clients may look for more hydrating injectable procedures. For this, we’d recommend looking into the REVOLAX range due to the make-up of 100% Hyaluronic Acid which helps to draw water to the skin. Further to this, the advanced cross-linked technology means REVOLAX has a longer duration time.
We’d love to hear if you’ve noticed any up and coming trends in your clinic following lockdown. Have you seen an increase in upper facial tweakments? Let us know over on our social channels.
