Journalist Liz Skone James explores the hottest new non-invasive cosmetic treatments. Liz asks experts including Dr Tracy Mountford and Dr Joanna Christou, what we should be looking for in 2022. As a result of the “Zoom effect” many have turned to tweakments. Many want “non-invasive treatments that smooth, tighten and sculpt” thanks to the convenient little to no downtime required.
Expert Dr Tracy Mountford
Founder and Medical Director of The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, Dr Tracy Mountford’s reveals that she thinks 2022 treatments will have an emphasis on being regenerative and about boosting collagen levels. Dr Tracy says:
“Our aim is always to enhance and beautify, rather than alter looks… I think that this year we will see more of a focus on regenerative treatment that stimulate and harness natural collagen production, with a focus on this rather than relying so heavily on the use of dermal fillers.
Injectable treatments such as Radiesse, Sculptra and Profhilo give very natural stimulatory affects that work over time with the patient’s own body to generate very natural, aesthetically pleasing results, and they are in increasingly high demand.
These injectable treatments can also be combined with technological treatments that stimulate natural collagen production, such as Ultherapy and Morpheus8. Using two treatments in combination in this way often gives superlative aesthetic outcomes. Indeed, in select cases the results can be similar to surgical face lifting.
I also see there being a huge focus on refining the silhouette to create healthy, toned, shapely bodies; technologies such as EMsculpt NEO reduce fat by an average of 30 per cent and increase muscle mass by an average of 25 per cent. This can be used cleverly to reduce fat in key target areas, such as on the thighs to tone, reduce fat and to enhance and improve the shape. It can also be used very successfully to tone arms, as well as on the abdomen and glutes to create shapely curves. The exciting thing about innovative technology like this is that it is bespoke to each patient’s needs – one to watch develop and evolve during 2022.”
Expert Dr Joanna Christou
“This year there will be even more focus on skin health and collagen boosting treatments such as Profhilo (a revolutionary ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment). These treatments are great long-term investments in the ‘age-well’ philosophy, and I like them because they don’t actually alter your natural face shape. When these are underpinned with an intelligent sprinkling of dermal filler and skin tightening treatments such as Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound technology to target the deep structural layers of the skin and increase collagen production, we can help to optimise the best clinical outcome.”
