2019 Beauty Trends in Cosmetic Enhancement
Although there is a long way to go, we are finally we are seeing some diversity on our screens. Thank you rise of streaming TV services and a (somewhat) more inclusive agenda from Hollywood! However, ageism is still rife, where youth is power and beauty, and there is an ever increasing demand for cosmetic medicine and its associated procedures to help us look slimmer, younger and more desirable.
So, what’s the latest in aesthetic enhancement these days? Today we look at the beauty trends of 2019 and how we’re adapting them for everyday living and appeal.
Lips: Lip fillers have come so far, thank goodness. No more trout pouts, unless that’s the look you are wanting. Today’s lip enhancements are far more subtle and natural looking. This is provided you engage the services of someone who can deliver you the style you’re after. With Botox or Dysport leading the way in terms injectables, these are used to add volume to both the upper and lower lips through a series of strategically placed injections.
A lip flip procedure is also favoured by those of us who have a disappearing top lip, especially when smiling. Thousands of women will agree that a small amount of swelling and bruising is well worth it. Some specialist clinics will also combine a lipo procedure (from hips, tummy or thighs etc.) and harvest this fat to put into your face. It might sound a little bizarre, but being your fat, your body tolerates it better and for many people it’s longer lasting then chemical fillers – for some, the fullness can be permanent!
Chin: Whatever the fashion, a defined and shapely jaw, is always in style. Whether male or female, we are seeing rising rates of double chin removal, especially as excess or simply drooping skin in this area can add to ageing and the appearance of excess weight. Sculpting the jaw might also involve some liposuction, but given that the results are permanent, many people agree it is well worth it, given one’s face is always on show. Some people are also candidates for fat dissolving injections, which is an even quicker process than lipo in this area, making it more cost effective, and still permanent.
Brows: thank goodness the pencil thin look is quite dead in the water. In fact, there is a booming market in eyebrow (and eyelash) grow serums, for those trying to make up for the early 2000s over-plucking fiasco. Although the full and busy look of the 80s is not having a renaissance, a filled and sculpted shape is.
Forget dying or the painted on look, the staple brow tool for today’s a young professional is to have them mircobladed or microfeathered. This procedure is a type of natural brow tattoo (either partial or full) that adopts a feathering technique. Prep can be tedious as you need to grow your brows out for a number of weeks prior. But this is so at the first appointment the best shape for your face can be determined: but it’s absolutely worth it to avoid having to pencil them in every day.
