We are a nation obsessed by our appearance, with skin care treatments continuously being developed to try and improve every inch of our bodies. These treatments have come a long way in just a few years, however technology isn’t standing still. Our beauty treatments will therefore continue to improve at a very rapid rate.
Previously, surgery was one of the only ways to achieve the specific results men and women were looking for. However, with such a large advancement in technology, at ProSkin, we are able to offer a range of non-surgical methods, from laser hair removal, picosure tattoo removal, injectables, dermaroller and much more.
However in the future, even these treatments will see a huge change from what they are now. We take a look at what we can expect to see in the next 10 years.
Our injectable treatments are mainly used for wrinkle relaxing, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), or face-lifts. They involve a set of very small injections to areas that require treatment. It is quick to carry out and virtually painless, with no downtime or aftercare needed, unlike surgery. However, because the injections contain synthetically-derived compounds and drugs, the treatment will need to be repeated every 6 – 18 months. In the future, this won’t be the case. Significant research has already been carried out into stem cells, taken from fat. A stem cell is a cell from which other types of cells develop from and so we may be seeing them used for injectables in the not too distant future. In some areas, this stem cell technology has been used for breast augmentation, instead of using a synthetic implant which needs to be surgically inserted.
Other alternatives to revitalising your skin is with laser skin rejuvenation, which can dramatically improve skin tone and texture and the brilliant new treatment called Picosure Focus Skin Revitalisation which reduces wrinkles. However, these too will see a change in the future. We will no longer need surgery, injections, or even laser treatments, but a simple gel. Hyaluronic acid gel is an example of one of these treatments which is currently being tested. This will soon be used instead of dermal fillers and other treatments, to help reduce wrinkles and lines. Can you imagine being able to wipe away your wrinkles as easily as taking off your makeup?
We will also see a shift towards more personalised skin care. Everyone’s skin is different and so with new technologies, it will be possible to analyse the exact hydration levels, fine lines, pigmentation and ultraviolet damage, so that our skin care products can be targeted towards our specific skin type rather than just our age.
Also get ready to move over your bathroom things and make space for your very own laser. With new developments, you’ll soon be able to have a laser which is safe and affordable enough to use at home. You will be able to get a laser to help smooth lines and stimulate collagen, as well as a home laser for hair removal and a number of other treatments!
Even scarier is the thought of your mirror talking back to you. Well, that might just be the case in the future too. Instead of just looking in it for your morning and evening skin care routine, your mirror will be able to evaluate your skin and tell you whether you need to use more moisturiser. This is only the starting point though as it could also track your skin over time and even give you advice!
As you can see, medical technology is poised to make huge strides. Plus, with our society obsessed with beauty and appearance, these technologies and treatments are becoming more affordable and commonplace in our lives, as well as much more effective.
At ProSkin, we provide at a wide range of skin care services and we make sure we keep up-to-date with these exciting new developments, to bring our clients the newest and most effective treatments, whether it’s to remove a tattoo, hair, wrinkles, or any of our other treatments.
