As more and more clinics and salons combine cutting edge technology with a hands-on approach, the demand for advanced aesthetic treatments is ever increasing. The beauty and aesthetic industry is always on the move and it is crucial for you to keep your business in sync with the latest products & trends in this competitive yet lucrative marketplace. This article will inform and hopefully inspire you to consider these latest advanced skin treatments. Here are the top 10 advanced aesthetics treatments we feel you should consider for you clinic:

1. MICRONEEDLING

Huge growth has been seen recently with these microneedling treatments, although the concept has been around for centuries. Microneedling makes use of the natural wound healing process of the skin and increases the general absorption of active skincare ingredients.

A microneedling device will give flexibility of needle length and varying speed settings to tailor each treatment to individual clients, whether you are treating for general skin health and collagen banking or treating deeper skin indications such as scarring and stretch marks. By adding this treatment to your “toolbox”, it will guarantee brighter and firmer skin. It is a one stop solution for wrinkles, stretch marks and scars, with minimal downtime.

2. SKIN PEELS

A relatively gentle and non-invasive treatment depending on specific ingredients and the strength of the peel. Peels can penetrate from the superficial layers, right down to the deeper layers of the epidermis,, helping to reveal fresher, healthier skin. Containing ingredients such as glycolic, salicylic, mandelic, peels have antimicrobial properties that will dry out and prevent further acne breakouts, improve the appearance of pigmentation and reduce sebum.

It’s critical to protect skin from the sun at any time, but especially after a peel – no matter how strong or what the type of peel was. Not doing so can lead to blotchy patches and irregular skin coloring. An SPF of 30 or higher is recommended.

3. DERMAPLANING

Dermaplaning is quickly becoming one of the most highly sought after treatments in the UK. This is due to the affordability of the treatment and the speed at which it can be delivered. Dermaplaning involves the use of a surgical scalpel to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin. This has two main benefits, to remove the fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face and to encourage the growth of new skin cells by also removing the very top layer of skin.

This results in softer, smoother and younger looking skin. Also, not only does it have these visual benefits, but by removing the fine vellus hair, you are therefore reducing the amount of dirt and oils that can get trapped in the hair which can encourage poor skin health.

4.LED–LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY

This treatment procedure makes use off our clinically tested and proven wavelengths of ultraviolet-free LED lights. Red light reduces inflammation, improves blood circulation and has an anti-ageing effect. Blue light targets acne bacteria reducing active lesions. Green light reducing pigmentation and yellow can help alleviate shingles, cold sores and rosacea.

5. RADIOFREQUENCY

Radiofrequency is a skin tightening method using energy to heat skin with the purpose of stimulating collagen production. The procedure is non-surgical and therefore the recovery time and risks are reduced to minimum. By the nature of the human body to conduct heat, radio-frequency energy flows into the deep layers of the skin and the subcutaneous layer causing the tightening of the skin structure and increase in collagen production.

6. MICRODERMABRASION

Microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin and removes the dull and rough layer of dead cells that accumulates on the skin over time. It utilises small crystals that are sprinkled on the client’s

skin or a diamond tip for a crystal free option. Clients with clogged pores, uneven skin pigmentation or fine lines will benefit greatly from this treatment.

7. ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound skin treatment makes use of high frequency waves to penetrate the skin. There are different forms of ultrasound. The facial add-on is a very simple and painless treatment procedure that uses a handheld device while the ultrasonic therapy is a non-invasive procedure that is used to lift and tighten the chin, neck and brow parts of the face.

8. NO NEEDLE MESOTHERAPY

No needle mesotherapy was invented specifically for those clients who are needle phobic. Plason is the first combination Plasmaporation and Sonoporation device in the United Kingdom. It is based on the concepts of atmospheric pressure plasma and ultrasonic technology. The main applications for the Plason device are the treatment of active acne, signs of ageing, oily skin, hyperpigmentation, and dehydrated skin using combined plasma (plasmaporation) and ultrasound (sonoporation) technology. Plason starts skin renewal at the dermis to deliver utmost results to the epidermis.

9. PHOTO REJUVENATION (IPL)

Photo rejuvenation is a treatment that uses lasers or ‘intense pulsed light’ to treat various skin conditions that are caused by repeated exposure to UV (ultraviolet light). The treatment aims to reverse skin concerns

that are caused by photo-aging such as sunspots, pigmentation, wrinkles and other issues regarding the texture of the skin, however it is not suitable for fitzpatrick skin types 4-6 due to the wavelength used.

10. LASER HAIR REMOVAL

While laser hair removal has been around since the ’90s, it’s more popular than ever and for good reason. It’s an effective and safe way to get rid of facial and body hair that requires virtually no upkeep. Laser hair removal is particularly popular amongst people who have darker thicker hair that is more difficult to remove in the traditional means or for those who suffer with hormonal imbalance such as PCSO (PolyCystic Ovaries). Laser hair removal is performed with intense pulses of laser energy to destroy the hair follicles. There are three different kinds of laser, diode, alexandrite, and Nd:YAG. The most commonly used wavelengths are the Nd Yag 1064, which can treat all skin types, whilst the Alexandrite is perfect for treating finer hair on fitzpatrick skin types 1-3.
