Have you ever wished you could gaze into a crystal ball to see what the Next Big Thing in cosmetic enhancement will be? If so, then this article will be of special interest to you.
A recent research project revealed what top aesthetic professionals – dermatologists, cosmetic physicians, and plastic surgeons – predict will be the future of their industry. Here’s what they see.
Stem Cells to Stem the Tide of Ageing
Stem Cell technology is still in its infancy. However, a research paper published in the Korean Journal of Medical Science concluded that:
“Overall, clinical advances using various stem cells suggest a promising future for opening a new cell therapeutic strategy in plastic surgery.”
Fat Is Where It’s At
Autologous fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, will continue its emergence as a reliable anti-ageing treatment. As more is learned about harvesting and transplanting cells, results are likely to improve dramatically and for the long term. Fat grafting has great potential in body enhancement and facial ageing.
Better Results with DNA
Aesthetic professionals will use a variety of scientific tools, including DNA analysis, to create a more complete picture of their patients. The more doctors know about their patients, the better equipped they are to create customised treatment plans that bring success.
Functional Skin Care Medicine
Once considered the stepchild of the medical professional, alternative medicine has come into its own in the 21st Century. Like functional medicine, which focuses on creating an optimal state of total body health, functional beauty treatments involve a holistic approach to skin health.
Big Butt Fever Will Cool Off
Brazilian Butt Lift procedures skyrocketed in 2015, with ASPS reporting an 86% increase over the previous year. Currently, there is no way to reverse this procedure, but doctors predict that as interest in this silhouette wanes, the demand for buttock reduction will drive new surgical innovations.
Look Before You Leap into the Future
We live in amazing times, but Costhetics would like to offer a word of caution. Massive interest in developments in cosmetic enhancement has created a cottage industry of black market procedures such as stem cell treatments. As noted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons:
“Advertising claims for cosmetic procedures using stem cells are running far ahead of the scientific evidence for safety and effectiveness.”
If you are considering a new or emerging cosmetic surgery procedure or treatment, be sure that the provider is a well-trained, well-experienced professional you can trust. You deserve the best when it comes to your health and beauty, and you shouldn’t settle for anything less.
