You can MASK but you can't hide.

Botox for Around Eye Wrinkles

In a pandemic world where most of us are only seen while wearing a mask, there’s been increased attention to the eyes on the esthetic level. Where lip injections and rhinoplasties once reigned supreme, dermatologists believe that the next-most requested area that patients are going to call attention to is their eyes, as well as their forehead. Botulinum toxin, AKA botox, can quickly and non-invasively make a huge improvement in fine lines around the eye area, like erasing the “11’s” and “crow’s feet,” notes Murphy-Rose. “With results lasting approximately four to six months, and typically highly satisfied first-time patients returning for subsequent treatments, I predict that 2021 will see increased numbers of consumers.”


Great for: Anti-pollution

Climate change impacts our globe and our day-to-day life — including our skin. “People are faced with protecting their skin not just from the sun, but also from these increased environmental toxins,” notes Robinson. Antioxidants are taking center stage thanks to their ability to defend against free radical damage and improve the effectiveness of SPF.” Robinson anticipates seeing a growing number of antioxidant serums and ampoules as well as antioxidants within other formulations such as makeup and SPF.

One antioxidant that’s gaining attention is CBG (AKA cannabigerol), which is a derivative of the cannabis plant. “Like CBD, it is non-psychoactive, and boasts many benefits including anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory,” explains Robinson. “When it comes to topical use in skincare it seems CBG may support the skin’s ability to self-regulate moisture levels.” Because both CBD and CBG are not regulated by the FDA and the research behind them is relatively new, she recommends reaching out to your dermatologist before using any product containing them.

People actively visit cosmetic doctors and do various procedures during the spring and summer season and reduce these visits during winter.

Moreover, Christmas and New Year holidays are coming, and we are sure that you want to look stunning. In this article, we have gathered the biggest medical winter 2021 aesthetic trends that would help your skin survive the cold season and look fabulous. Keep on reading!

The “Litlift”

This is a new trend, which will confidently move on to 2021, created by the millionaires whose beauty priorities have shifted in the direction of lightness and naturalness. That is why they prefer injections of dermal fillers and Botox to help them look like the best versions of themselves with no makeup. The procedure has got the title “litlift”, implying minor dosage injections of botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid in various facial areas to help the skin look younger, smoother, and more beautiful. With this aesthetics approach to your appearance improvement, there will be no too evident changes, and no one will even guess you have done something to your face. You will look younger, fresher, but still natural – A better version of yourself.

Preventative injectables

It is among the top non-surgical cosmetic procedures for the face for the last few years. It is always easier to prevent the problem than eliminate its consequences. That is why the use of neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) at a young age (between your 20ies and 30ies) into such areas as the forehead, glabella, and under the eyes gains momentum. The thing is that mimic wrinkles like crow’s feet or furrow lines are the first to appear, and the botulinum toxin works perfectly to minimize the facial expressions. The practice has proven that the introduction of Botox after your twenties with the preventative aim provides excellent results. Patients report much fewer mimic wrinkles on their face compared to their peers who did not do the injections.

Lip augmentation

Many aesthetic medicine doctors predict that the lips trend will survive in winter 2021 as well (and many winters ahead) because plump, smooth, and clearly defined lips are always beautiful. Injections with dermal fillers for lips augmentation are one of the old new aesthetic trends 2021. However, the approach to lip enhancement became more “individualized” as the aim is not to make new lips but to make the person’s lip more beautiful and attractive. It explains why there are so many different lip fillers with various viscosity, density, and cohesiveness levels to provide additional volume, eliminate vertical wrinkles, define the contours, and correct asymmetry. Why is it perfect for the winter season? The answer is that hyaluronic acid is an excellent moisturizer and will protect your lips from dryness during this cold time.

3D facelift

A facelift is one of the most popular procedures, especially among women older than 35. Traditional facelifts involve surgical invasion, long recovery, and unpredictable outcomes. Moreover, they are quite costly. That is why 3Dfacelift with the innovative dermal filler and application of bio-compatible collagen threads is among new cosmetic procedures 2021 going to blow off the cosmetology market. Together these two techniques can eliminate the signs of natural aging, tighten the skin, and lift the contours of the face involving minimal external invasion. Of course, the results do not last as long as after traditional surgery, but the effects are fast (it does not take more than 60 minutes in total), they are natural and do not require post-recovery. That is why the innovative 3D facelift gains more and more interest among the patients.

Winter and cold are not reasons to neglect your skin and appearance. On the contrary, it is a wonderful time to cheer yourself up with beauty procedures in the time when everything around is a little bit dull and uninspiring, so when spring comes, you are ready to impress people with your youthful and beautiful appearance. The litlift, preventative injectables, lip augmentation, and 3D facelift are one of the hottest beauty procedures suitable for the cold period of the year. Consult a cosmetologist to choose the one that would enhance your already beautiful face in the best possible way.
