While beauty and aesthetic trends may come and go, there is one thing that will always stay in fashion, and that’s healthy skin. That’s why so many of the latest trends focus more on creating healthful skin and maintaining that appearance of good health. There’s a buzzword that is taking the beauty community by storm right now: tweakment. These are simple, minimally invasive or non-invasive treatments that keep skin looking refreshed and healthy with natural results and little to no downtime. Beauty experts are forecasting that we’ll be seeing a lot more of a few of these tweakments in particular, with Californians leading the way. In fact, California boasts the highest number of health and wellness spa businesses in the United States – more than 2500! Read on to know more about the aesthetic beauty treatments that are going to be a favorite in California in 2022.
Lip threading is the hottest new way to get the plumped lip look that has become so popular in the past decade. In the past, the only choices available for plumping lips were short-lasting topical treatments or lip fillers. Fillers can be a great way to get a sexy pout, but they are a very temporary fix that requires regular treatment. They can also look quite unnatural when done incorrectly. Lip threading uses dissolvable threads to lift the lips and stimulate collagen production, which creates a long-lasting lip plump while also correcting fine lines around the mouth.
Cryotherapy and Laser Facials
Cryotherapy as well laser facials are a great way to brighten and tighten skin with absolutely no pain or downtime. These types of facials can be performed at a med spa, but a Los Angeles or Sacramento dermatologist can do the treatment as well. The doctor or technician uses a handheld device to apply a controlled dose of the liquid to the skin. The freezing effect is known to stimulate an anti-inflammatory response, as well as increasing oxygen and blood flow to the face. The result? Brighter, tighter skin. There is also some evidence that regular cryotherapy facials can stimulate collagen production, resulting in even better, much longer-lasting results.
Facial optimization is a trend that is catching on big, particularly with an audience that is younger than the people who typically seek out fillers and Botox. In facial optimization, the doctor and patient use Botox and facial fillers to “optimize” facial features, enhancing different areas or smoothing out others to achieve a look that is a very natural and subtle change. The effects of facial optimization might best be described as making someone look like a more rested version of him or herself. This treatment can also be used to address facial asymmetries or other irregularities.
Continuing with the trend of keeping naturally healthy skin at the forefront of one’s good looks, chemical peels continue to be in heavy demand. The goal of any peel is to remove the top layers of dead, unhealthy skin, and encourage production and emergence of healthy, fresh skin layers. Peels are available at a variety of strengths, with higher strength chemicals which create deeper peels typically used for more severe skin problems such as acne scarring or discoloration. The downtime for a chemical peel is minimal, although for deeper peels there will be some amount of temporary redness and discomfort.
As the beauty industry has proven time and time again, there is always something new to enhance your looks. These are just a few of the newest beauty and aesthetic trends that Californians will try in 2022.
