Aesthetic Treatments Around the World

Aesthetic treatment, when done right, can help reverse the effects of ageing, give you a slimmer physique, alter your facial features, and even let you have the appearance of healthier, thicker hair. Some treatments are more popular in some parts of the world, reflective of the needs and physical goals of people. For example, Asians are obsessed with double eyelids, whiter skin, and a sharper nose, while Westerners often seek to enhance the shape and size of their lips, breasts, and buttocks. Universally, there is a clamour for a flatter stomach, a more toned, lifted appearance to the face, arms that are not flabby, the absence of a double chin, and youthful, supple skin.

Here are some of the most popular aesthetic treatments all over the world:

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery

Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery operation that corrects defects, deformities, and disfigurations of the eyelids. It reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids, giving the eyes a more youthful appearance. Recently, this is used to aesthetically modify the eye region of the face, to give the appearance of having those coveted “double eyelids.” This surgery is very popular and is now considered common in South Korea and Japan.

Fraxel

This is a non-invasive aesthetic treatment that uses laser with patented fractional technology to target damaged skin. The microscopic laser columns penetrate deep into the skin, treating only a fraction of tissue at a time, which then promotes rapid healing and stimulates your skin’s natural healing process to replace old and damaged skin cells with fresh, glowing, healthy, and youthful skin.

Ulthera

If you are hesitant to go under the knife for a facelift, this is the treatment option for you. Ulthera is a non-invasive facelift that offers results comparable to plastic surgery. This involves administering ultrasonic energy at selected locations and to a predetermined depth, resulting in clearer, lifted, and significantly firmer skin. This is the only procedure that allows for visualisation of subcutaneous tissue while it is ongoing, so you can expect precise results. This type of aesthetic treatment can be done almost everywhere in the world, from the west, Europe, and Asia.

Botox

Still the go-to treatment to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe fine lines. It is often used between the brows, on laugh lines, and to soften angular jawlines. It is also a proven way to reduce excessive underarm sweating for a short period of time.

Rhinoplasty

Commonly known as a nose job, rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that corrects and reconstructs, restores the functions, and aesthetically enhances the nose. It can make the nose smaller or larger, change the angle of the nose relative to the upper lip, alter the tip of the nose, and correct bumps, indentations, and other defects.

Tummy tuck

Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that gives the stomach a flatter, more taut appearance by removing excess fat and skin in the area while tightening the abdominal wall. This procedure is popular among people who have lost a significant amount of weight and are left with inches of loose skin, as well as with women who have given birth and want to restore the firmness of their stomachs.

Fillers

The most popular fillers are injectable ones, such as Juvederm and Restylane, and are used for everything from lip augmentation to wrinkle treatment. These fillers can also be used to treat scars, especially deep ice pick ones. They can even be used to create a higher nose bridge.

Hair Transplant

Popular among people who are balding or have a receding hairline, hair transplant gives you the appearance of having a head full of healthy hair. It is a surgical procedure that moves hair follicles from one part of the body (the donor site) to a bald or balding part of the body (the recipient site). It is also used to treat various forms and degrees of permanent alopecia in both men and women. There are many clinics offering hair transplant in the UK.

Going under the knife is a decision that should not be taken lightly, which is why it is important that you research extensively on the procedure you want to be done and ensuring that you choose a cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist that have the qualifications necessary to carry out these procedures.
