What are the TOP 5 aesthetic treatments in 2020?

Extract from our survey

We live in a fast paced, social media friendly world. We are always looking to put our best face forward, online and offline. The natural, clean and healthy look is here to stay. Looking good helps a person feel great about themselves. And studies show there is a beauty advantage! Your appearance has a positive correlation with your work, your career and your life.

In your 20s to 30s, preventative treatment is important. A little goes a long way. 

In your 40s, when you wake up one day, you will suddenly notice skin sagginess. This is your trigger point. It is your perfect time to consider a non surgical facelift. Nip it in the bud as soon as possible, and you will be saving yourself a lot of time and money in the long run.

In your 50s and 60s, facial volume loss, skin dehydration and wrinkling would be more obvious. Progressive treatments, addressing your dry, damaged and saggy skin will be key. This means having sessions spread over 6 months for optimal results.

Based on clinical studies and on the ground patient feedback, in no order of merit, here is the list of the TOP 5 Aesthetic Treatments in 2020. In my humble opinion, these treatments will benefit both men and women.

1. Threadlift | Thread-lift: This involves inserting threads into the SMAS LAYER of your skin. It has a triple action

  2. A regenerative action for gradual and natural results
