As we continue to emerge from our sweatpants and sofas, the need for rejuvenation and well-earned treatment is finally accessible again. With a quick guide on the top beauty treatments to expect in 2022, here are some globally successful treatments to make sure you’re living your best life in the year ahead.
As we move into an era of ‘skinimalism’ (skin minimalism) with a new found interest in the world of skincare for many, these semi- permanent treatments are able to provide you with that effortless glow.
Helping millions to achieve this ‘clean’ look are treatments such as:
- Laser hair removal
A HydraFacial is performed every 15 seconds around the world- even on some familiar faces, such as Britney Spears and Beyonce. By rejuvenating the skin, and minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, this non-invasive procedure extracts debris from your pores with the help of a vacuum-like feature. In addition, a peel will also be applied to resurface the skin. Finally, a moisturising serum is applied which contains; antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid to rehydrate the skin. With results showing an incredible transformation, who wouldn’t want to treat themselves and indulge in a facial approved by celebrities.
Some aestheticians recommend repeating the treatment every 4 weeks, whilst others encourage repeat sessions every 2 weeks. With the cost of a session averaging between £150-£250 in the UK.
This injectable is becoming a more popular choice in the beauty industry, surpassing the more permanent choice of filler. Unlike cosmetic fillers, Profhilo doesn’t add volume to your face, avoiding the “puffy” or “swollen” look that many associate with fillers. A purer form of hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This helps transform the skin quality from drab to fab! Due to the procedure encouraging stimulation of collagen, it is less of an enhancement as it doesn’t change the shape of your face. Therefore, providing a more natural look that is now celebrated.
Each 2ml syringe contains approximately 64mg of Profhilo and remains in the skin for 6 months, with no need for top ups for 6-9 months. Prices vary depending on location. With the average price of £350 per syringe.
A cheaper alternative to the HydraFacial, is microdermabrasion. The small suction device used to deeply clean your pores and excess oil build up, gently vacuums the face. This non-invasive cosmetic procedure begins by blasting fine crystals onto the skins surface. Following this, the face is then exfoliated and a layer of dull, dead skin is removed, therefore revealing a healthier appearance. With a more concentrated focus on skincare recently, microdermabrasion seems like a good place to begin your skincare journey.
The effects can last up to a month, so top-ups are recommended. However, with each session costing around £60, it is a much more affordable and maintainable procedure.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal has been a continual success for the beauty industry, with many men and women investing in it. Although it’s non-permanent, and requires many sessions it effectively targets hair all over the body, from face to legs. This mild form of radiation, targets your hairs and damages the hair follicles with heat to delay future hair growth. Encouraging the promotion of finer and fewer hairs to appear. With at home lasers costing £300+. The treatment is widely accessible and works best on darker, thicker hair and all skin types.
A full cycle treatment lasts approximately 9 months, with the price averaging between £60-£100 per session.
Finally, Dermaplaning is a pain-free procedure, with incredible results. By using a scalpel, a professional aesthetician exfoliates the face removing the “vellus hair” that many of us recognise as “peach fuzz”. In under half an hour your skin will feel softer with a healthier glow brightening your appearance. Unfortunately, it is not suitable for all skin types, as professionals advise not to have the procedure if you have PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) or active acne
With one treatment costing as little as £60 it is the perfect pamper if you’re looking for a small treatment but still want to feel like you’ve had an incredible facial.
