Beauty trends come and go at such a fast pace these days that it can sometimes feel impossible to keep up. However, there will always be classic, timeless looks to aspire to with the guarantee that they’ll never become unfashionable or dated.
Social media has beauty trends coming in and out of the public consciousness faster than ever before. And, while it’s tempting to hop on and try something new, it isn’t always in your best interest. Some cosmetic procedures, makeup techniques, and aesthetic fads touted by so-called beauty gurus and influencers aren’t necessarily as safe as they should be. Furthermore, they tend to go out of fashion quickly, but may not be that easy to get rid of. Here are a few examples of recent beauty trends that left their mark—and not in a good way:
Super-thin eyebrows: It seems like almost every woman in the 90s and early 00s fell under the spell of this trend of grooming the eyebrows into hair-thin arches. Unfortunately, over-plucking results in sparser hair growth. Full eyebrows are in again, but growing them in has proven difficult for some.
Over-plumped lips: Lip injections have become so mainstream that we’ve grown used to that full, pumped-up look. However, this trend took a turn for the worse when young women took to their kitchen cabinets and started using suction and shot glasses to try to achieve a bee-stung smile. The practice ended up causing broken blood vessels and other unhappy side effects for those that tried it.
The ski-jump nose job: When nose jobs became more popular in the 80s and 90s, one of the issues that emerged was that they all looked the same. Surgeons all copied a similar technique to achieve a pert nose with a ski jump shape. Nowadays, unique features are more appreciated, and even cosmetic surgeons are going to more effort to preserve the nose’s natural shape.
Extreme Contouring: Contouring is a makeup technique using different shades of foundation to highlight one’s features. For a while, makeup artists were taking it to extremes, creating sky-high cheekbones and super-thin noses that washed away with a bit of makeup remover.
When it comes to beauty, some things never go out of style. In fact, your best bet for achieving a timeless appearance is to start by enhancing your natural looks—you’re one of a kind, after all. However, there are a few timeless beauty standards that you simply cannot do without. Here are some classic looks and the most effective aesthetics treatments to help you achieve them:
Clear, Blemish-Free Skin
Perfect skin will always be in style, and automatically elevates your appearance to being classic. Plus, blemish-free skin allows your best features to shine through. Eating right and following a good skin care routine is the best way to keep skin clear and glowing, but if you’re struggling with acne, then an acne reduction treatment is a great option.
Acne reduction treatments use advanced Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to combat acne-causing bacteria and inflammation below the skin’s surface. These treatments are a great option for anyone struggling with acne who isn’t seeing results from making changes to their diet or is looking to boost their progress with professional cosmetic help. Just a few treatments can fast-track you on your way to better skin, and prevent future breakouts from happening as well. With a single treatment session lasting 20 minutes, the Venus Versa™ delivers visibly smoother, calmer-looking skin in less time than it takes to do your morning skincare routine!
A Smooth, Youthful Look
As we age, fine lines and wrinkles can detract from our overall appearance. While there’s nothing wrong with aging, modern technology has made aging gracefully easier and more possible than ever before. One way to keep lines in check and to prevent premature aging is with wrinkle reduction treatments.
Non-invasive radio-frequency-based (RF) wrinkle reduction treatments use gentle heating to stimulate collagen and elastin production under the skin’s surface. Your body’s natural production of these essential elements begin to slow as you age, but RF treatments kickstart them back up again. These energy treatments are an effective, pain-free way to preserve and restore your skin to a smoother, more youthful-looking vitality.
A Fresh, Bright Complexion
You don’t have to look any further than social media these days to see how popular clean, dewy skin is. Glowing skin has always been a sought-after beauty goal, and these days both men and women are willing to go to extremes to get it. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels are go-to treatments, but there’s no reason to subject your skin to something this harsh when there are more effective options that are gentler on skin.
Venus Glow™ facial rejuvenation treatments extract and remove dirt, excess oil, and impurities from below the skin’s surface, resulting in a more radiant, refreshed complexion. It’s a fast, safe, and effective way to leave skin feeling noticeably healthier, cleaner, and more hydrated. And boosted by our new, innovative line of Glow Serums, your Venus Glow™ treatment can be tailored to treat any number of other skin concerns, such as acne, rosacea, or premature aging.
A Firm, Lifted Appearance
Taking good care of your skin to maintain its health, elasticity, and youthfulness is always on-trend. Maintaining your looks means sticking to an excellent skin care routine and treating the sign of aging as they start to appear. Things like sunspots, sagging skin, and wrinkles can all be addressed with a TriBella™ treatment.
TriBella™ uses advanced Intense Pulsed Light technology to promote skin’s natural collagen production and restore elasticity for a firmer, more youthful appearance. The sessions are comfortable and effective, with no downtime. Best of all, one 15-30 minute session combines three powerful procedures into one:
