Over the years, we have seen some very big changes in the cosmetic industry. In 2019, more apparent changes are going to take shape. To put it simply, gone will be the days where most people go under plastic surgery just to enhance their appearance.
Nowadays, whether it is body shaping or facial enhancement, people opt to non-invasive or non-surgical procedures instead of traditional plastic surgeries. As a matter of fact, the number of people who switch from plastic surgery to non-surgical procedures more than doubled during the last decade.
Well, it isn’t hard to see why. With non-surgical procedures and treatments, it has become more convenient and easier to fine-tune a person’s appearance without ever experiencing major downtime that is usually linked with undergoing plastic surgery. Whatever their reason may be, you’ll see that many people are still undergoing beauty enhancements. From injectable skincare to laser treatments, below you will find the five biggest non-surgical procedures in 2019:
In 2018, we saw a majority of cosmetic companies in the world use virtual-reality 3D imaging in making decisions with regard to cosmetic procedures. While 3D imaging proves to be a great breakthrough at the time, we will see this 3D technology go to the next level. We will see a more advanced technology – 4D technology or 4D mapping, to be precise – being introduced in specific clinics around the world.
Whether it is a few minor procedures or a full-on surgery, 4D technology lets you see a more accurate result of your cosmetic procedure before it even begins. 4D mapping is a giant step forward in terms of breast augmentation and reconstruction. Patients would be able to select the perfect implant that would best fit their body, which is undeniably awesome.
Another amazing non-surgical procedure that is making a wave in 2019 is Botox 2.0, which is a new form of Botox that will make use of a new E-type 2 toxin. This type of Botox is supposedly designed to last longer even when applying so little.
Botox 2.0 ensures that the effect of the treatment will last longer even when using a little amount of the serum. It’s a win-win for both practitioners and patients. Practitioners are able to save when it comes to dosage, while patients can expect fewer treatments since the effect of the treatment is made longer.
Ultrasonic Nose Jobs
Some of you may have had a traumatic experience or maybe heard of a friend’s traumatic experience when it comes to nose jobs. So, you probably know how a traditional nose job is done.
In 2019, however, there is going to be a new approach in terms of nose jobs – A new, less traumatic alternative that employs ultrasonic devices to help sculpt the nose to perfection. Ultrasonic rhino-sculpture – It’s what the treatment is called – is gradually gaining popularity in the first quarter of 2019. It offers faster recovery time – around two weeks – and a more accurate result.
In the past years, we’ve seen a lot of people get lip fillers in order to make their lips appear fuller. It is understandable since lip fillers are quite effective in achieving the patient’s desired lip shape.
In 2019, there is a new thing called lip lifts. It is a permanent procedure that is usually done under local anesthesia and takes less than an hour to finish. Lip lifts shorten the interval between the bottom of the nose and the top lip. It is able to do that by carving out a strip of skin just below the nostrils since it helps in raising the edges of the lip and creating a natural appearance, not to mention adding definition to your lips.
Body contouring is being offered to patients for a while now. However, it is expected to become even more popular in 2019. While people are still undergoing cosmetic surgery to shape their body, a larger number of people are starting to see the advantage of undergoing a non-invasive or non-surgical procedure in eliminating fat in the body and tightening the skin.
In that respect, body contouring is a ground-breaking procedure. It eliminates fat and builds muscle tone at the same time. This procedure uses highly-focused electromagnetic energy that allows muscles to contract in such a way that is not achievable through exercise.
Of course, with all these different procedures that, in one way or another, enhance or modify your physical appearance, you will still have to find natural ways to maintain your current look or figure.
