The world of cosmetic medicine is taking a shift into the more natural look, with more and more individuals choosing tweakments over treatments. At Hans Place, we are seeing an increasing demand for discreet and subtle enhancements that include refining lines, enhancing features and general rejuvenation for a more youthful look. Now recognised as a form of self-care, tweakments are seen as a way of feeling better in yourself.
Aesthetic transformations have been popular for some time, and the booming industry has seen excellent advancements in technology that make natural-looking tweakments possible today.
These days, achieving a refined, attractive and rejuvenated look without the need for full cosmetic surgery is much more common thanks to the advancement in non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Tweakments refer to small, non-invasive procedures that result in a natural and improved look. Instead of full-blown facelifts or rhinoplasties, men and women can choose faster, more discreet treatments that still offer effective but perhaps more subtle results.
Treatments such as non-surgical nose jobs, fluid facelifts, cheek enhancement, jaw and chin reshaping are all tweakments that offer similarly effective results to cosmetic surgery but without the invasive surgery. Tweakments often have short treatment times, and little to no recovery time so that patients can be back to their daily lives immediately.
It has been reported that the split between non-surgical and surgical cosmetic procedures is now 85% to 15% as more and more individuals are choosing tweakments over surgery. These mini-treatments and quick fixes are able to enhance and improve almost any problem area without having to go under the knife. The tweakment market used to be limited to just Botox and filler in the lips or nasolabial folds, but today’s technologies and advancements have made way for many more innovative and effective non-surgical treatments.
Better technology and understanding of facial ageing has made more natural-looking cosmetic work possible in recent years, making tight and puffy faces after treatment a thing of the past. Consequently, with so much available from these mini-treatments, it is no surprise that they are growing in demand. There are various types of tweakments available, and some of the most popular include:
Advances in skin rejuvenation technologies have resulted in the non-surgical facelift. Treatments such as Ultracel, the 7 or 9 point or fluid facelift can be used to enhance, rejuvenate, beautify and define facial features.
A series of precise filler injections can be used to soften angles within the nose, fill depressions and alter the shape of the nose altogether. This tweakment can straighten and balance noses immediately, without the need to undergo a full nose job. Unlike the surgical alternative, a non-surgical nose job causes virtually no or minimal swelling or bruising and leaving clients with a beautifully contoured nose and more balanced face.
Using PRP and/or Intracel, skin consistency and texture can be improved relatively easily and effectively with limited downtime. These tweakments are ideal for helping with fine lines, open pores, acne marks and poor skin texture.
Fillers have been popular for many years, and the number of soft tissue fillers completed in 2017 had risen by 3% from the year prior. Advances in dermal fillers such as Juvederm Xycross range can be administered in ways that are quick, effective and natural-looking. Defining the jawline and cheekbones in a way that doesn’t ‘look done’ are a tweakments that can result in a fuller, more youthful and attractive appearance.
The lips, for example, are often one of the most difficult areas to treat, and some can end up looking very poor and unnatural. In the hands of an experienced professional, dermal fillers can look natural and in keeping with the rest of the client’s facial features.
It is becoming increasingly popular for individuals to look naturally beautiful as opposed to frozen foreheads and puffy cheeks. Tweakments make it easy for patients to undergo cosmetic treatments in a subtle and gradual way, that often can’t even be detected. This is possible thanks to significant improvements in the techniques that cosmetic doctors use. Needles have been made finer, and less trauma is needed to achieve these natural and subtle results, resulting in tweakments that look great and have little to no recovery time.
More and more people are choosing tweakments because they are quick and easy, and often can be administered relatively quickly, as opposed to being planned well in advance. As well as being more convenient, tweakments are also often far more affordable and accessible than surgical cosmetic procedures. Practitioners can complete tweakments in a matter of minutes with no or minimal downtime.
Although tweakments are not as invasive as cosmetic surgery, clients should still carefully consider all options and well as the positives and negatives before deciding if they are the right choice for you and your body. It is crucial to think about why you are interested in a tweakment and what results you are hoping for, and then to talk these through with your practitioner.
Most tweakments don’t come with many side effects or recovery time but be sure to ask about this for your chosen tweakment before you decide to go ahead. Your practitioner will walk you through the entire procedure for your tweakment and be able to answer any questions you have on how it works or how the procedure is carried out. In an initial consultation, you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have so you can make an informed decision.
