Non surgical cosmetic treatments are a non intrusive, affordable way to create a more symmetrical appearance.

Non surgical facial treatment trends 2022
For decades, cosmetic surgeons have used Botox as a treatment for a number of medical conditions. Despite Botox being able to treat a range of conditions such as cervical dystonia, overactive bladder issues, and excessive sweating, it is still best known for its anti-aging properties and ability to help create a more symmetrical face by smoothing out any lines and wrinkles. Botox injections are the #1 most popular aesthetic treatment and have particularly exploded in demand in the last 5 years. This treatment is so popular in the non surgical cosmetic industry that it is estimated that over 7 million people have had Botox injections. So, why is this treatment so popular?
- It delays the appearance of ageing
- Botox smooths out wrinkles and fine lines
- Enhances natural beauty
- It’s non-invasive
- The procedure is fast
In recent years, the non-surgical cosmetic procedure that has grown the most is lip fillers. Statistics show that as of January 2021, in the UK lip fillers were the most popular cosmetic procedure searched for online with a monthly search volume of 40,500 on average. This trend is predicted to continue growing throughout 2022. Lip enhancement involves injections that can be used to add volume to your lips or alter their shape. Although we cannot say for sure what sparked the lip filler trend, many people think Kylie Jenner is responsible. In 2015, Kylie Jenner finally confessed her biggest beauty secret, that she had lip fillers which led to a 70% increase in inquiries for the procedure. Since then lip fillers have become more and more popular as the desire for the perfect pout continues.
One non surgical aesthetic treatment that is set to make its mark in 2022 is derma rolling. This method is used for overall skin rejuvenation and works by stimulating the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin to improve the tone and texture of the face. It achieves this through pin-point punctures which the skin perceives as damage, kickstarting the natural healing process by producing a plethora of new collagen. The results are brighter, smoother, younger-looking skin. The dermaroller is most commonly used to treat those with aged skin, sun damage, and acne scars, although it is a suitable treatment for anyone looking to rejuvenate their skin and have a more youthful appearance.
