There’s been a special excitement in the air as beauty services became available again, it almost feels like a whole new year! We spoke to the providers at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia about the most popular post-lockdown treatments in the non-invasive cosmetic space!
Anti-wrinkle injections and Lip Fillers
“It’s been wrinkles first, then hair, then nails,” says Principle Nurse Robyn Cussell who was glad to see so many of her clients return for their antiwrinkle injections and a catch-up. Part of the reason for this rush, Nurse Robyn suggests, is that people were overdue for treatment and couldn’t come in. She also think’s there’s another aspect. People were forbidden from getting their cosmetic treatments for a while, and now coming out of lockdown, there’s a sense of freedom in reclaiming that.
In addition to anti-wrinkle injections, she’s seen a surge in lip filler appointments. “It’s become trendy among our younger clients again,” Nurse Robyn explains. Possibly because of the increase in social media use while everyone was staying home.
According to Clinic statistics, the most popular non-invasive treatments post-lockdown have been HydraFacial and Ultraformer (aka, the non-surgical facelift).
Ultraformer is a treatment that uses ultrasound energy to stimulate your natural collagen fibres to lift, tighten and contract the skin for a more youthful appearance. According to Daniela, a Dermal Clinician at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, “Ultraformer is the best non-invasive treatment to give your skin a lift. It has no downtime and you can see the difference right away.”
Daniela and her fellow Dermal Clinician, Juliette, have both heard clients say that they started to feel old after staying in for so long – and we can all empathise with that!
“We’ve all been staying at home, looking at ourselves in the mirror and on Zoom meetings,” Juliette explains. A lot of people working from home have also saved money on transport or by not going out for food and drinks, so when the beauty clinics opened up again, you can see why a lot of women wanted to get out and do something special for themselves.
Juliette has seen a lot of her clients already who have experienced breakouts during the lockdown. “HydraFacial is a good post-lockdown treatment because people have been getting congested skin from wearing masks, from staying home, maybe exercising at home and not cleansing as much, which lets the congestion build-up,” she says, “I’ve been wearing a mask myself when performing treatments, and even I’ve gotten some breakouts because the mask traps some of the bacteria in and doesn’t always let the skin breathe.”
Looking at her near-perfect skin as she speaks, it’s nice to know that nobody is completely immune to a bit of adult acne!
Daniela explains a little further that “HydraFacial decongests the skin and gets the impurities out, sort of stopping the pimple before it starts, so it definitely helps after wearing a mask because it helps the skin breathe.”
With three steps (exfoliation, extracting debris from the pores, and infusion of nourishing serums) the HydraFacial also helps you feel refreshed and ready to get back out into the world again.
When we asked Senior Clinician Maria, she agreed with the others on Ultraformer and HydraFacial, but she has also seen a surge in laser hair removal from her clients who normally do more skin repair treatments. “they’re sitting at home and their hair is growing,” Maria suggests. Guilty as charged!
