Top Trends of 2021 in Aesthetic Treatments

BY Dr madiha Rao

The start of the pandemic brought a decline in aesthetic procedures in 2019.As we went into lockdown there was a lot of uncertainty about life and health. The ZOOM BOOM happened with a rise in virtual meetings, work from home and video calls for work and socialising where the face was the major focus. Camera and light emphasising our forehead wrinkles, tired eyes and dark circles. Sagging in the lower part of face and double chin becoming more obvious in front of the camera. Constantly looking at the filtered images of flawless actors on Netflix, Spending more time over social media as compared to interacting with average human beings created a desire to look our best. We saw a spur in the aesthetic procedures skyrocketing post lockdown. Here we are not forgetting to blame the big fat winter weddings ,golf and get togethers. Things are coming back to the new normal post vaccination with a decline in active Covid cases. The aesthetic  procedures like the ones mentioned below have been very popular during lockdown;

1) Botulinum toxin (botox) injections as the top post pandemic treatment helping to reduce the worry lines which we had during the pandemic.

2)Soft tissue fillers coming second in the list.

3)While lasers, peels ,facials, high intensity focussed ultrasound (HIFU) and Profhilo being number three on the list.
