Every year new and innovative skin treatments gain popularity — QN Magazine asked Christie Harris from Australian Skin Clinics her predictions for the top treatment trends in 2019!

Non-surgical lunchtime lifts

We all want to look our best. Relatively simple cosmetic procedures like Dermal fillers, CryoDefine (fat Freezing) and micro-needling treatments easily fit within a lunch hour.

Factors such as no surgery, no anaesthetic and no downtime have seen ‘lunchtime lifts’ increase in popularity by 461 per cent since 2000.

As the procedures become more accessible, prices become more competitive and now everyone can afford treatments previously only within reach of celebrities.

Technology has improved tremendously, and it gets better year on year. Tailored treatments achieve optimum results, often instantly or within days of treatment. Safety is of the highest priority, so risk is minimal and generally far lower than with surgery.

We expect more and more men and women to take advantage of quick, easy and no-downtime treatments in 2019.

Treating aging before you show signs

Preventative treatments that cover everything from anti-wrinkle injections to laser for rejuvenation, means that by treating ageing in your 20s and 30s you set yourself up for wrinkle-free and youthful skin in your 40s, 50s and beyond.

In your mid to late twenties you might start to notice a few fine lines, duller skin than normal, crow’s feet around the eyes or mild brown spots starting to appear.

These are the signs that it’s time to get ahead of the game and utilise the treatments and technology available to help prevent the signs of ageing!

Laser rejuvenation treatments offer the most effective way to diminish imperfections such as pigmentation, broken blood vessels and general redness you may experience in your 20s and 30s, while anti-winkle injections are an effective treatment to prevent repetitive dynamic lines appearing on the face.

The “Tweak-ment”: Face contouring with injectables

Among the top treatment trends for 2019 would have to be the ‘tweak-ment’. A bit plumper here, a bit more angled there? There’s an injectable for that.

But it’s not like 10 years ago when people were coming in with the cover of a magazine wanting to look more like a supermodel. Increasingly we are seeing clients who want to look more like their own filtered photos, or simply a fresher version of themselves.

Recently, clients have been focused on micro-optimisations that make them feel more confident without being obvious. The popularity of this natural look will increase in 2019.

Our top treatment trend for 2019? Professional skincare products

Gone are the days of picking up a facial cleanser from the local supermarket. Now it’s all about a personalised, professional skincare regime.

Professional skincare products will be a top ‘at-home’ treatment trend for 2019.

As people become more skin conscious they increasingly want skincare products that complement their in-clinic treatments.

Whether it be for acne, dry skin or anti-ageing solutions, at-home products prescribed by Australian Skin Clinics dermal technicians will continue to be carefully curated to support client journeys between treatments.

2018 has been a massive year however, there is no doubt we can look forward to a new year of exciting beauty and treatment trends for 2019.

If you’d like to be ahead of the curve with your skincare this year, book a complimentary consultation with one of our trained dermal technicians or cosmetic injectors by contacting your local Australian Skin Clinics.
