2022 Review: What are the top 5 treatments this year?

Now that we are coming to the end of 2022, we wanted to reflect on the year, looking at five trending treatments performed at Skin Excellence Clinics.

The aesthetics industry is growing at an exponential rate, and this year, in particular, more people have been implementing non-surgical cosmetic procedures into their beauty and wellbeing regimes. The demand for these types of procedures has skyrocketed!

So, with that in mind, let’s look at the top 5 most popular non-surgical cosmetics treatments we’ve had at Skin Excellence in 2022.

1. Ellansé: The Natural Filler

Ellansé is a procedure that will make you look and feel your very best, no matter how old you are. Ellansé is renowned for being a natural filler or natural collagen stimulator, which (you guessed it), has natural-looking results. The treatment is a highly cost-effective alternative to traditional dermal fillers, and results can last for up to 2 years!

The natural fillers can give you immediate correction like traditional dermal fillers, helping to correct areas that have lost volume. More specifically, the treatment is effective for:

  • Lines, wrinkles, and folds
  • Nose-to-mouth lines
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Jowl laxity
  • Thinning skin
  • Ageing hands
  • Acne scars
  • Dropping or sagging around the mouth
  • Recessed and hollowed temples

As you can see, this non-surgical treatment can help with several issues, plus it is the only dermal filler that’s a biostimulator of collagen, which means it can help bring back that youthful look you yearn for! The best part is you’ll notice the difference almost immediately.

Our head doctor, Dr Ian Strawford, was one of the very first practitioners in the UK to introduce Ellansé. Not only that, but he’s a leading authoritative figure in performing collagen-stimulating treatments, such as Ellansé and Silhouette Soft, achieving results that are just as good, if not better, than a surgical facelift.

Ellansé is performed under local anaesthetic and there is little to no pain. The recovery time is between 12 and 24 hours.

2. Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is a world-renowned treatment that has been the talk of the aesthetics industry in 2022. This skin rejuvenation treatment can improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, and other skin concerns with micro-needling and radiofrequency energy that penetrates deep into the skin, stimulates collagen production, and promotes the regeneration of new skin cells, thus redefining the contours of the face, neck, and body by strategically moulding the fat on the top of the skin’s surface for optimal results.

The highly popular procedure has a low risk of side effects and lasts for a very long time (with the odd maintenance treatment every 1-2 years!). It’s the only treatment available that can target the subcutaneous layer of the skin (the deepest layer of tissue in your skin that mainly consists of fat cells and connective tissues).

Whether you’re looking for a treatment that’ll smoothen your lines and wrinkles, even skin tone or improve skin texture, tighten, or lift, Morpheus8 might be for you. The longevity of this treatment is what makes it so popular, plus, it’s being used by the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Kim Kardashian!

3. Full-Face Rejuvenation

Another one of our most popular treatments this year is a combination of a few of our non-surgical procedures to achieve what we call a ‘Full Face Rejuvenation’. Our doctors at Skin Excellence are experts in facial anatomy, with highly renowned aesthetic skills and an artistic flair that enable us to achieve the very best results.

Full-face rejuvenation involves small injections of dermal fillers to volumize the face and restore the definition, combined with other treatments to achieve full-face rejuvenation, including Botox, dermal fillers, Morpheus8, and Ellansé.

4. Mole Removal  

Radio surgical mole removal is one of our trending treatments for 2022. Many, many people have moles and skin lesions, some more and some less, in different areas of the body. However, when they’re unsightly and exposed, it can influence self-confidence and self-esteem. Before radio-surgical mole removal, the only way to remove moles and lesions was by cutting into the skin with invasive surgery. Now, they can be removed very easily with minimal risk of scarring!

Our radio-surgical treatment is effective for moles, skin tags, viral warts, seborrheic warts, and more (contact us for a consultation to find out about other lesions suitable for this treatment). Radiosurgery involves the use of ultra-high frequency to heat up the water in the cells of the mole or lesion before vaporizing them with minimal damage and scarring. What’s more, the treatment only takes 15-30 minutes!

5. ZO Skin Health

We have some seen some amazing results from skin analyses then embarking on a skincare routine with ZO Skin Health at Skin Excellence Clinics this year.
