2020 has been all about self-care. The pandemic forced us to stay indoors and gave us enough time to take care of ourselves- physically, emotionally and mentally. As salons closed everywhere, we were forced to become our own aesthetician, hair stylist, and even dermatologist. I bet you dabbled with at-home treatments and beauty gadgets, trying to replicate the professional experience at home. But now that we bid adieu to 2020, we are eager to face the new year with a fresh face.
What is going to be hot in 2021? We are all looking for best beauty treatments for 2021 that will change our ace game and will focus on overall improvement of our skin.
Traditional Facial & Micro-Needling
For smooth and refresh skin, we have always opted for a traditional facial. Now, to add up to the glow, when traditional facial is combined with micro-needling, the end result is youthful, glowing skin. Micro-needling is a procedure that uses very fine sterile needles that penetrate the skin causing micro-wounds. As wound start healing, collagen and elastic are synthesized, leading to improved skin texture, tightness and softer appearing acne scars.
It is a medical procedure carried out by trained aestheticians. It benefits the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production and increases blood flow, which further helps in reducing the signs of aging.
Celebrities, including Kim Kardashian West and Bar Refaeli, are fans of this scary facial. Boasting big-time results, vampire facial is a combination of a microdermabrasion, followed by the application of PRP (platelet-rich plasma), which is derived from the serum portion of the blood, containing platelets. The platelets contain high levels of growth factors, which, when applied to the skin, stimulate cell turnover.
Being considered as one of the best beauty trends for 2021, vampire facial is said to improve the youthful appearance of skin. It is is one of the trendiest and most-loved skin care treatments for getting rid of fine lines and stubborn wrinkles.
Laser Facial Contouring
The same technology that made body contouring a big hit is now being used to reshape the face and jawline. Laser facial contouring is another non-surgical solution to common complaints. Laser facial contouring helps in:
- Reducing fat deposits under the chin and below the eyes,
- Remodelling the jawline
- Firming and toning the skin
This type of procedure is emerging as one of the best beauty treatments for 2021 as it requires no recovery time, is virtually pain-free, and works quickly so that you can be Zoon-ready in no time!
DNA Tailored Skincare
Brands like 4.5.6 Skin and Rationale have become ‘hyper-technical’ with skin analysis and DNA research to design highly personalised, made to order products. After a cheek swab, the brands, based on DNA codes and skin’s genetic structure, decide accurately whether the skin is susceptible to hyperpigmentation, acne or Rosacea? This
This beauty trend for 2021 will take skincare to a whole new level to access individual skin DNA codes to meet skin’s changing needs in real time.
We all love a super exfoliating effect. Dying to get the glass-skin, aestheticians pronounce topical liquid carbon treatment as one of the best upcoming beauty trends of 2021. Laser carbon peel helps absorb oil and lift dirt and dead cells from the skin’s surface. Then, the Nd:YAG laser device heats it and binds it to the epidermis. The heat induces collagen production deeper in the tissue and reveal a plumper and a smoother surface.
The next generation of hyaluronic acid fillers, Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA), have already created a buzz and are being considered amongst the best beauty treatments of 2021.. Touted as the least-modified filler, quite similar to body’s own hyaluronic acid (HA), the aesthetic injectables are designed to treat all dynamic facial wrinkles; from the cheeks to the lips. Also, the anti-aging benefits of aesthetic injections such as Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin on patients in their 20s and 30s ensure a healthy tout face for years to come.
These days consumers are more driven by sustainable choice. From non-toxic beauty products to choosing skincare products with refillable options, the goal is to control the stress we are all putting on the environment. Brands like Clé de Peau Beauté, L’Occitane, Le Labo, and Rituals are just a few of eco-friendly names that offer refillable products.
