Margo Marrone, Co-Founder, The Organic Pharmacy is talking all about some of the non-invasive treatment options out there.
What are non-invasive aesthetic treatments?
A non-invasive aesthetic treatment is any beauty treatment that does not involve tools breaking the skin or entering the body; they are also within the category of non-surgical treatments. Instead, they utilise a variety of other methods, such as ultrasound, radiofrequency, laser, and microcurrent technology to achieve the desired effect.
Some people might also opt for minimally invasive aesthetic procedures, which are still non-surgical, but involve use of needles or a cannula, therefore breaking the skin. The most common example of a minimally invasive procedure is Botox, but there is also the hugely popular micro-needling, which fits into the category. While non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments are slightly different to each other, they are used mostly interchangeably and so we’ll give you some examples and information on some procedures from each category throughout this article.
Why are non-invasive treatments trending?
There are a lot of reasons why these treatments are increasing in popularity. Recent research notes that this market is forecast to grow by 9.03% between 2022 and 2028, due to the high emphasis placed on appearance by many adults (Yahoo Finance). Additionally, more women over 50 are opting for both injectables and Botox to combat the signs of ageing — the rising trend of more non-invasive procedures is therefore also attributed to the fact that there is a rising older population, and more disposable income in this age group to treat themselves.
Lots of non-surgical and non-invasive beauty treatments are garnering popularity today, but which ones exactly are going to be the ones that stand out in 2023? Here, we’ll go through some of the most notable treatments — so you can get ahead of the curve on this innovative skincare.
Lifting and laser facials
When you go to get a facial, you might not be expecting such a deep treatment, but technology has made so much more possible; new facials include thermotherapy and cryotherapy to really support your skin. Facials have become not just about using nice skincare products and having some relaxing ‘me’ time in a spa, but also about having deeper skincare treatments that really target your skin concerns. This includes laser treatments and other advanced technology that deeply cleans, sculpts, and lifts your face to really see the difference after your appointment. This trend for more intensive — and more effective — facials using antioxidants and technology will likely continue more into 2023, as more people become familiar with these innovative new facials.
In 2021, injectable procedures dominated the market without question. Now, there is more new technology emerging in other areas, meaning they have more competition than before. However, even with this new technology on the market, fillers and Botox will continue to be very popular in 2023. They provide a valuable anti-ageing benefit, with very convenient upkeep. In particular, for 2023 chin filler is going to become more popular: defined jawlines are increasingly trending, and adding a small amount of filler is the perfect, minimally invasive way to get his look.
Lymphatic drainage is also going to gain more popularity this year. This is a gentle massage used to help release any water retention in your body, helping to contour and tighten. The massage does this by stimulating the lymphatic system; this system is part of our overall circularity and immune system. Lymphatic drainage is such an important process because it allows you to control the amount of water retained and released by the body. This can also be combined with cryotherapy for a real recovery experience, and these treatments can reduce inflammation, skin ageing, and hyperpigmentation, leaving you with a healthier glow.
LED light therapy
You might also be curious about trying LED light therapy this year. This is a cumulative course of treatments applying LED light to the skin. These treatments don’t involve UV light, which can damage the skin barrier; instead, LED light helps to treat your skin for various issues, such as blemishes, redness, or fine lines. Whatever the skin concern you wish to address, consult with the experts prior to arranging your treatments, and make sure you’re wearing appropriate eye gear. These procedures are very convenient, as they only last 20 minutes, and this can still make such a difference to your skin — so it’s no surprise they will be going strong in 2023.
– Margo Marrone, Co-Founder, The Organic Pharmacy comments:
“Non-invasive and minimally invasive beauty treatments are a great option for treating yourself, addressing a particular skin concern, or simply trying something new. Not only is it important to make time to look after your skin, but taking the time to head out to a spa can be an important bit of downtime from the hustle and bustle of the work week. Not to mention, having some professional attention once in a while is a fantastic supplement to a dedicated at-home skincare routine.
“These treatments are expanding in popularity in 2023, and it’s no wonder: they offer convenience, pampering, and scientific expertise to get you that all-important glow. In the coming year, we’ll see this market expand even more as people head out to their spa: facials will become more advanced, including elements like enzyme peels, roses, diamonds, and even oxygen. The sky really is the limit with so much skincare technology at-hand.”
