The New Cellulite Smoother
Look out for a new lunchtime cellulite smoothing treatment launching later this spring. Called Profound, the non-invasive procedure uses a combination of Radio frequency and Micro needling to rebuild collagen, improve hyaluronic acid and elastin under the skin improving skin texture and ironing out indentations and dimpling.
What’s different about the Profound system is that the double action of Micro needling and the heating effect of Radio frequency boosts the production of collagen in the subcutaneous fat and it is precisely this collagen that builds up newer, stronger, straighter fibrous bands in the superficial fat. It is these fibrous bands which pull down the skin and creates the dimpling you see with cellulite. Once the bands are treated, the skin smooths itself out. A course of treatments will give the best results which are seen up to three months later. Expect to pay around £1000 for around 4 sessions.
Bespoke Breast Implants
Breast augmentation remains one of the most requested in the world, but this year, breast enlargement and reconstruction is on the front lines of technological innovation thanks to 3D printing technology.
While some surgeons to allow clients to preview surgical results currently use 3D imaging, the industry is currently perfecting a technique that will print silicone implants to fit our bodies perfectly. Traditionally, implants have been made in a round form, which is not the ideal shape for all women, but the multiple layers utilized during the 3D printing process will provide an implant that’s tailored made to each woman’s unique shape with the bonus that the implant will also be more durable and stronger. This is great when you consider that women have different body shapes, lifestyles and goals when it comes to choosing an implant.
The new face of Facelifts
Like a push up bra for the face, The Mini Marionette Lift is set to be 2017’s hottest new facelift and will make cheeks look peachy again and jawlines toned and taut in less than thirty minutes.
This innovative procedure uses a combination of threads as well as new dermal fillers to lift saggy jowls and restore fullness to the cheeks. It’s a simple painless procedure. First local anaesthetic is used to numb the areas. Then, tiny incisions are made near the hairline and along the jawline and soft sutures are inserted to lift sagging skin back into place. Next hyaluronic dermal fillers are used to restore plumpness to the cheeks. There may be bruising or swelling in the days after the treatment and patients are advised not to smile for a week or so to let the threads settle. You’ll see an immediate natural, rested and rejuvenated appearance – facial features will look refreshed and lifted and big bonus skin will improve over the following three to six months, as collagen is kick-started. Results will last up to two years.

Smarter Skin Ingredients
Look out for new skinnovations that will help guard against pollution, fade wrinkles and help improve skin health.
This year will see the launch of new probiotics skincare in the form of spray on mists and moisturisers. Much like our gut relies on active probiotics and other gut bacteria to restore health, the biome of the skin needs to maintain certain bacteria on the skin for health. This year’s other hot anti ageing ingredient will be Peptides. Peptides play a number of roles in skin repair and function, they aid in cell communication between the epidermis, the outer protective layer of skin, and the dermis, the very active middle layer of skin. This makes the skin’s repair process more effective, helping to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration.
Additionally, peptides can help boost collagen, one of the primary proteins that give the skin its structure and firmness.
