Now that it's almost time for the New Year to roll around again, many women are thinking ahead about New Year's resolutions. Diets, exercise plans, and cosmetic procedures often have a priority place on resolution lists. If you're like many women, you like to stay as current as possible on emerging trends in procedures and treatments. Fortunately, there are new things on the health and beauty landscape for you to consider. Following are just five appearance enhancement strategies that you'll be seeing more of in 2019.
Probiotic Skin and Hair Treatments
Foods and supplements containing probiotics emerged as a serious health trend several years ago, and they're beginning to make the logical progression from being consumers as ingestibles to the inclusion in topical skin and hair products. The products are designed to promote healthy bacteria in the skin and hair. They're been helping in reducing skin inflammations, including cystic acne lesions, sunburn, and contact dermatitis, reducing any associated itching and pain. They've also been found to promote optimal moisture absorption and retention, enhancing the overall functionality of moisturizing and anti-aging products. Shampoos and conditioners fortified with probiotics are believed to improve the health and appearance of the hair and scalp.
Proactive Neurotoxin Wrinkle Treatments
The average woman often doesn't use products formulated to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles until she notices the first small signs of aging — and some even wait a little longer. Many women, however, start a skin care routine that includes serums and creams designed to keep lines and wrinkles at bay before they appear, and this is really smart. You'll see this trend being taken a lot further in 2019 when injections of neurotoxins such as Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport becomes increasingly popular as a way to delay and possibly even prevent the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
Thanks to breakthroughs in technology, face-lifts and other invasive surgical procedures are no longer the only way for someone to look noticeably younger. Micro-treatments rely on technology developed during the past decade that has resulted in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Examples of micro-treatments include laser resurfacing, Botox treatments, and collagen building treatments. Although these have been around for the past decade or so, the emerging trend is in bundling them together to provide the consumer with a customized experience. The benefits of micro-treatments written up by best-selling author and regular Vogue contributor Jancee Dunn in 2017 made a small splash among beauty and fashion trendsetters in 2018, and these treatments are right on schedule to enter the mainstream during 2019.
Natural-Looking Breast Enhancements
Breast enhancement results are all too frequently way too obvious, but fortunately, 2019 will see a serious trend toward a more natural look. More and more women are wanting a more realistic, yet nonetheless attractive, overall silhouette that looks healthy and balanced instead of the top-heavy look that's prevailed for the past couple of decades. Many health and beauty-conscious women are also turning to high-impact exercise routines, and overly large breasts can make these exercises more challenging. Another motivating factor is that women are looking at long-range results of breast enhancement surgeries and realizing that large implants have an increased risk of sagging over time.
Brazilian Butt Lifts
In keeping with 2019's projected progression toward further customization, Brazilian butt lifts are on trend to becoming increasingly popular. They're highly practical because they kill two birds with one stone — instead of using implants to create the desired shape, Brazilian butt lifts use fat stores from other parts of the patient's body. Therefore, if you've got a little more fat in your thighs than you'd like, you can have some of it removed and used to create the round butt of your dreams. Contact a cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Robert J. Troell, M.D., F.A.C.S. to learn more about this procedure.
