Over the last few years, aesthetics have seen a huge increase in popularity. But what is aesthetics in beauty?
What is aesthetics?
Aesthetics is a philosophical study around beauty. More recently, aesthetics has become more well known for being non surgical treatments used to reduce the effects of ageing. Aesthetics are often used to enhance a person’s natural beauty.
When it comes to aesthetics, there are a number of beauty treatments that can be considered. Here are some of the most popular beauty aesthetic treatments:
These aesthetic treatments are completed using a range of methods. Some are injections while others are simply a solution being applied to the face.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injections used to even out wrinkles. They are used to fill the space under the skin, therefore creating a more full look. Dermal fillers can be used in a variety of places, including the lips, cheeks and nose.
Once a patient has decided to have dermal fillers, a consultation should be held so that aesthetic goals can be discussed with the practitioner. At this point, they can make suggestions based on filler amounts and outcomes. Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which can be found in a range of beauty products.
What are anti wrinkle injections?
Similarly to dermal fillers, injections are used for this treatment. Where dermal fillers work by plumping a targeted area, anti wrinkle injections work by relaxing the muscles. When having an anti wrinkle procedure, a patient may be asked to move the muscles in the face. This allows the practitioner to identify the best place to inject.
What is microneedling?
A microneedling treatment involves using small needles to pick the skin. This stimulates collagen production. The treatment is used to balance the skin tone which can provide a more youthful appearance.
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is used to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. This starts the process of building new cells. Chemical peels are used to reduce the signs of ageing through evening the skin tone.
Choosing a practitioner
All aesthetic treatments should be completed by a fully trained professional. Some training academies may offer the opportunity to be a model. If this is the case then there should be a trained professional there to support the trainee.
If you’re considering aesthetics, make sure that you have conducted research into the treatment and potential practitioners. Their courses and qualifications should be accredited by a relevant body in the beauty industry.
Before having any aesthetic treatments, the patient should feel comfortable in the environment, have access to all necessary information and have discussed beauty goals with the practitioner.
Many aesthetic treatments need repeating more than once. Some become regular treatments twice a year for example. This is either to achieve the desired look or to maintain it.
Based on the patient’s beauty goals, the practitioner should advise how often the treatment should be repeated. It’s important to listen to their advice because having an aesthetic treatment too often can cause problems.
