2021 has been an interesting year so far! And as more and more patients are working from home, we’re starting to see already popular procedures skyrocket in light of 2020’s pandemic! Let’s take a closer look at 4 trending procedures that are sure to dominate in 2021 and beyond.
1. Botox, Fillers and Injectables
Injectables have certainly become more popular in the last 3 years and the trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down at all. Patients are finding injectables efficient in addressing minor concerns without the need to take lengthy breaks from work or their active lifestyles. As mentioned, with more of the population working from home, back-to-back meetings are being held via virtual appointments like Skype and Zoom, making individuals more aware of their facial profiles and the way they present themselves. It’s no wonder that more are taking advantage of this time in isolation to address pesky wrinkles and creases with Botox, dermal fillers, and other efficient injectables.
2. Laser Skin Resurfacing
Facial improvements alongside injectables include laser resurfacing treatments. This classification of treatments works exceptionally well to address deep scars from acne, blemishes, wrinkles, and creases, as well as general discolouration and textural issues. Being at home affords more patients the opportunity to take advantage of facial treatments that can lessen and even reverse textural issues that have plagued them for years, even decades!
The trend in facial rejuvenation doesn’t stop there! Traditional surgical facelifts seem to be developing more buzz in light of the COVID pandemic. As mentioned, we’re spending more time at home allowing us to become more aware of personal insecurities that we’ve never had time to address until now. Mature patients are finding surgical facelifts incredibly efficient in addressing their facial concerns all at once while providing a permanent solution to their aging skin. These patients are taking advantage of their time at home and are thriving through the short recovery resulting in fresher, natural-looking results that last!
4. Liposuction and other Skin Tightening Procedures
When the pandemic is over, we’re all going to want to get back to our normal routine while giving our best impression! Liposuction and other non-surgical skin tightening procedures are starting to ramp up in popularity as work responsibilities are allowing employees less time in person and more time at home in front of a computer screen. Patients are finding this an ideal time to address bodily insecurities, trim off and contour any unwanted fat around their arms, abdomen, waist, thighs, buttocks, and more!
As winter 2021 soon comes to an end, we’re excited to see patients returning to more flexible daily routines while putting their best feet — and faces! — forward. In light of the rise in remote workplace arrangements, we predict that facial rejuvenation treatments will continue to reach the top of the list in popularity long into 2022. If you’re looking to take advantage of this time while addressing those cumbersome issues that have been bothering you for years, then now may be the best time to do it!
