Hot Topics in Aesthetics – Top Trends You Wouldn’t Guess!
Hot Topics in Aesthetics For 2018 Include These 5 Trends!
#1: Nonsurgical and Minimally Invasive Over Invasive — Shifting from the Face to Body Treatments
Dr. Slater from Aesthetic Body Sculpture Clinic and Center For Anti-Aging says the nonsurgical and minimally-invasive trend will continue to grow, as new and improved technologies are developed to shape, tighten, lift, erase facial wrinkles, and rejuvenate the face and body.
Natural looking results when it comes to lip enhancement, nor more Duck Lips like a few years ago. A newer injectable by Allergan for lips called “Volbella” is one of the patient’s favorites because it helps with volume and corrects fine lines around the lips without the obvious over-inflation of some other products. Some like to refer to Lip Injectables as the “Lipstick in a syringe.” Hot Topics in Aesthetics go on from Face to body.
“From body sculpting to fat melting, innovations in non-invasive and minimally-invasive procedures will continue to offer patients a multitude of options to meet their desires of looking and feeling their best. One of the Hot Topics in Aesthetics for 2018-2019 are radiofrequency treatments used to tighten the skin, and melt fat. These treatments are either used by themselves or incorporated into minimally invasive procedures. Plastic surgery, especially breast augmentation and tummy tucks, will remain a mainstay for dramatic body alterations. Loose skin can only be tightened to a certain degree before the patient has to undergo a surgical procedure, like a tummy tuck.
#2: Botox and Dysport Injectables
According to recent online publications such as New Beauty, Allure and HuffPost, Botox and other Neurotoxins like Dysport are still among the most popular injectables for 2018 in the USA. Maintenance is key when it comes to staying line free. When it comes to dosage, which is determined by the physician you visit. Best recommendations and options will be given at the time of the patient’s visit. Read our latest blog on Injectables.
The sculpting of abs using a liposuction technique combined with radiofrequency is going to be big in 2018. Minimally-invasive liposuction, with additional contouring techniques and devices for post-care to enhance the appearance of the muscles and tighten the skin, seems to be an ongoing trend. This can deliver the appearance of a six-pack without long hours spent doing crunches and starving yourself. You still have to live a healthy lifestyle and exercise to maintain the results says, Dr. Slater. Patients that undergo Liposuction, Skin Tightening and Body Sculpting should always remember additional calories consumed, will still cause weight-gain after the procedure and potentially mess up the results.
More Options To Get Defined ABS

#4: Relying on Your Own Body For Enhanced Results
This year will be focused on stimulating your own cells to naturally reverse the signs of aging. “This can be done with filler injections like Sculptra that help your body produce more collagen. Using your own body’s fat — Procedures that require Fat transfer like the Brazilian Butt Lift or Vampire Breast Lift enhance the look of your body without using an implant. They also restore the lost volume. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is another uptick in collagen building, cell growth, and better skin and hair health,” Dr. Slater says.
#5: Thread Lifts
A big buzz, and certainly one of the top Hot Topics in Aesthetics, are facelifts and neck-lifts with threads. Yes, you heard that right. Threads.
“The practice of lifting the face with threads is relatively new, but here to say,” Dr. Slater says. Threads can work well for certain patients because they stimulate collagen. The material of the thread can act as a foreign substance to the body and stimulate collagen production. It may also have changes like barbs, cones, or knots that will catch onto the skin. When we place the thread and position the skin over it, it looks great almost immediately. Over time, there’s a lifting effect that will continue to improve your skin. This improvement can last eighteen months or longer depending on the age of the patient. These thread lifts are also referred to as Lunchtime Facelifts. Companies like Thermi are offering their own brands. The Instalift is a brand and technique that we currently offer at our offices in Atlanta and Warner Robins. Still, we are sure there will be no shortage of new and improved versions of thread lifts in 2018 and 2019.
