The Latest Trends In Injectables for 2020
Time and practice can turn almost any good product into a great
product. This is especially true for the cosmetic use of injectable
treatments, such as Botox® and other fillers. As the stigma once
associated with cosmetic procedures has waned, injectables are more
popular than ever!
Injectable Trend #1 – The Era of Tweak-ment
Whereas cosmetic procedures once changed the contours and shapes of the treated
area dramatically, patients are now seeking less invasive procedures to
“tweak” instead of radically alter their lines. Instead of wanting to
look like Ken or Barbie, the majority of people just want to simply be
the best versions of themselves, maintaining their natural lines and
shapes. Micro-treatments are used to smooth out fine lines, plump
sagging skin or brighten dullness. With injectables, no-filter-you looks
just as good as Instagram-you! Refined. “Like me, only better.”
Injectable Trend #2 – Erasing the Gender Stigma
While injectables like Botox were once primarily seen in women, now men are
jumping into the world of cosmetic injectables in record numbers. Users
report getting injectables to look younger, stay more competitive in
their business field and even change the contours of the lower third of
their faces (jaw, chin, etc.) to meet the trend toward a more masculine
appearance. It is important to ensure your practitioner has experience
using injectables on men, as placement and desired results may differ
from standard female facial injections.
Injectable Trend #3 – Prevention
Another trend in injectables is a shift in the age of the demographics seeking
treatment. While fillers and Botox were once primarily used to erase
lines and wrinkles among an older crowd, injectables are now frequently
sought out by younger patients in a preventive effort. An increase in
patients under 30 is definitely trending. In fact, some millennials
consider preventive injectables similar to exercise. Maintain good
health now and prevent more major procedures down the road by reducing
the likely occurrence of dramatic issues. Other younger patients feel
the pressure of social media and the desire to smooth out minor flaws
before they become more noticeable.
Injectable Trend #4 – Brighten
A relatively new usage of injectables in 2020 includes their use as a
superficial treatment. From the Korean ideal of a translucent,
glass-like complexion, this trend is on the rise in the U.S. Often used
in conjunction with fillers, getting surface skin treatment can brighten
the appearance of skin. (Think of natural highlights on those
cheekbones without makeup!) Skin lightening/brightening can also tighten
and reduce the appearance of pores and reduce the effects of rosacea,
resulting in a softer, more youthful skin.
Injectable Trend #5 – Non-Traditional Placements
While injectables have long been used to iron out skin wrinkles along the
forehead and corners of the mouth and eyes, new uses are on the rise.
Feel like years of wearing heavy earrings have wreaked havoc on your
lobes? Filler! Want to slightly upgrade the nose shape without the
down-time, pain and cost of a full-blown rhinoplasty surgery?
Injectables Are Cost Efficient Surgical Alternatives. What’s Stopping You?
Whether you want brighter and tighter skin; a different shape to your nose,
ears, or jawline; or simply to be rid of saggy, wrinkled skin, you have
options beyond surgery now. Injectables and fillers often require
little-to-no down time, have immediate results, last for months, and are
significantly more affordable than surgery. Schedule your appointment online.
