Predicted Cosmetic Medical Treatments for 2015January 20, 2015
Last week, we covered the hottest cosmetic medical treatments for 2014. After a staff survey, here’s the Top 4 treatments we predict will be popular in 2015.
Liposculpture: A more refined form of liposuction, liposculpture removes fat deposits through fine cannula using tiny entry incisions. It’s the most requested treatment for patients who want to remove fat deposits from their abdomen, thighs and love handles. What’s the main difference between liposuction and liposculpture? Liposculpture is performed under local anaesthesia, while liposuction is performed under general anaesthesia meaning no tell-tale signs after the procedure and no sedation-related risks.
SleepTight: If you’re having complaints from family members and friends that you’re snoring too loudly, it’s time to consult a medical professional for SleepTight. A revolutionary laser-based treatment, SleepTight contracts the skin at the back of the throat by opening the air passage. The procedure only takes 20-30 minutes and requires no mouth guard or sleep-assisting machines. There are no side effects or risks, and after the treatment, you can walk out and return to your normal routine.
RF Needling: A new advanced treatment for skin lifting, tightening and rejuvenation is RF needling. This treatment uses a combination of radio frequency and needling to induce collagen production within the deeper skin layers. RF Needling is outstanding for all skin types, especially for those with textural problems such as acne scarring. The only minor side-effect after the RF Needling treatment is redness, which may last between 24-72 hours after treatment.
Vampire Facials (PRP Therapy): This treatment has struck a cord since Kim Kardashian tried it out back in 2014. PRP stands for platelet rich plasma, which is effectively you own blood and injected to the area you wish to plump. PRP Therapy isn’t new, as platelet rich injects have helped athletes to heal sports-related injuries, it’s increasingly used in cosmetic medicine as the concentrated formula of your own platelets has rich growth factors, which are needed to repair the body and comes in handy when trying to fight the signs of ageing. This treatment is best for those with acne scarring, as well as those who want to improve the appearance of their skin, but not resort to wrinkle injections and fillers.
