The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us all to change our way of life, and for many of us, this has meant working from home and collaborating over Zoom. As a result, Zoom face and COVID face have come about. Many of us out there have toned down the makeup and placed more emphasis on our natural asset, our skin, as part of “skinimalism”. Here, we talk about trending skin treatments on the Sunshine Coast we believe will continue in 2022.
1. Chemical peels
Chemical peels will remain the number one skin treatment to achieve a clear and radiant complexion. These are fantastic at reducing the size of pores and improving the texture of your skin. These peels contain small amounts of acid applied as a single layer to your face. It works by removing the top layer of skin and revealing fresh new skin. Chemical peels are an excellent stimulant for the body’s natural response to produce collagen – the substance that gives our faces that plump and youthful glow.
If you want to keep up with this trend in 2022, you can try our Power Peel from our Dr Aspect partner.
Have you ever witnessed people using ice on their faces in the morning? Well, it’s a significant way to reduce puffiness and inflammation. Cryotherapy or cold therapy works precisely in the same way whereby your skin is subjected to extreme cold temperatures to boost skin health. Some of the major benefits of cryotherapy include reducing puffiness, redness, inflammation, promoting blood circulation and calming sunburns.
3. Skin tightening treatments
Firm and tighten looser skin to make you look as young as you feel through high-tech skin treatments. Our clinic offers collagen inducing therapy, including LED light therapy, micro-needling, microdermabrasion, PDO threading and injecting platelet-rich plasma. These therapies can assist with scar management, wrinkle reduction, hair rejuvenation by stimulating collagen production and developing new cells.
4. Skin-mind connection
Now more than ever, the connection between stress, anxiety, and their effect on your skin has become apparent. Whether it be an increase in breakouts, fine lines, or a general droop in the face, it might be time for many of us to head back to the spas and clinics now that restrictions are easing. Spa days have always been an excellent time for the busy and stressed to unwind and be taken care of by aestheticians, and it seems that in 2022 their popularity is only going to soar.
5. Non-surgical body sculpting
Non-invasive body sculpting is a great way to target stubborn fat that won’t leave you alone. It’s far less expensive and you can achieve fantastic permanent slimming results right from your first session. If you’d like to keep up with this trend, you might want to try our JuvaSlim Fat Dissolving injections. These can target the submental or under the chin, anterolateral flank, aka love handles and the lower belly.
At Illuminate Aesthetics, we fully support these aesthetic trends and offer a range of skin treatments right here on the Sunshine Coast. If you want to reduce the amount of time you spend putting your makeup on in the morning, invest in collagen-boosting, pigmentation reducing and skin tightening treatments. Skin treatments are an investment – the earlier in life you start these, the better you’ll age. Makeup is a great tool, especially if used in conjunction with monthly skin treatments; however, it does not slow down the ageing process. If one of your resolutions for 2022 is to take better care of your skin, check out our skincare page or book an appointment with one of our specialist nurses to determine the best skin treatment for you.
