2021 looks set to be a busy for year for aestheticians providing cosmetic beauty procedures and treatments, with their popularity showing no signs of diminishing, despite the COVID pandemic and recurring national lockdowns. If you’re an aesthetician looking to hit the ground running in the New Year, now is a good time to be planning ahead to meet patient demand and ensure that you are equipped to offer the procedures and treatments everyone is talking about. Without further ado here are the Top Cosmetic Beauty Procedures and treatments for 2021.
Tear Trough Treatment
Non-surgical treatment for Tear Troughs has been practiced since the turn of the century but has been steadily gaining momentum in recent years; and for good reason. The results that are possible to achieve can completely transform the appearance of your patient and leave them looking refreshed and feeling more confident. As the periorbital area is a key component in perception of facial attractiveness, treatment for concerns in this area can improve how a patient appears both to themselves and to others.
Patients may attend for treatment concerned with the appearance of dark under-eye circles, and/or a ‘hollowing’ that is very visible and often causes marked dissatisfaction – defined as tear trough deformity. As with all things, tear trough deformity exists on a scale, and patients may present with a need for mild or more significant correction. Sometimes exacerbated by hereditary disposition as we age, anterior displacement of infraorbital fat and a general loss of volume in the face can contribute to this presentation, alongside thinning of the tissues, loss of skin elasticity, and reduced osseous support. Invariably however, the result is a tired and aged appearance.
Non-surgical tear trough correction comprises precise administration of dermal filler into numerous aspects of the under-eye region, helping to smooth the transition between the lower eyelid and upper cheek – a result considered aesthetically favourable.
Considered one of the more complicated treatments due to the inherent risks involved and the difficulty of the area to be injected – it is essential that this procedure is only undertaken by confident practitioners well versed in periocular anatomy, with a full cohort of injecting techniques to ensure a safe, effective, and natural result.

Unlikely to be a surprise for any aesthetician worth their salt, lip fillers still reign supreme as the most popular aesthetic treatment being asked for by patients. Even with the recent introduction of mandatory use of face coverings around the world, those who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their lips are still seeking treatment. Ensuring your confidence and skill in this procedure as an aesthetician is a guaranteed enhancement to your portfolio and upswing in your revenue.
The perfect lip is achieved by adhering to nature’s divine proportions or the ‘Golden Ratio’ – achieving an expertly balanced look that works in harmony with the structure of the face, thereby contributing to perception of attractiveness. Definition, hydration, and volume are all equally as important, and are key to achieving the desired outcome. Successful treatment lies in using a holistic, moderate approach and knowing your patient’s ideal result, whilst utilising a careful selection of high-quality products and injecting techniques.

As an aesthetician, one area you may have considered branching into is the exciting realm of medical-grade skincare. More than ever, patients expect their clinicians to provide a ‘one-stop-shop’ service for all of their cosmetic treatment needs. If you haven’t yet considered training in the provision of specialist skin treatments, alongside your portfolio of non-surgical aesthetics – you may be missing a trick.
Medical-grade skincare treatments complement aesthetic injectables and can actually bolster the results of treatment. Furthermore, when treating a patient holistically and investigating their skin health as a whole – you have the opportunity to provide optimal care and benefit to your patients, whilst enhancing your sources of revenue. Medical-grade skincare products are prescription only, making them an entirely different proposition to any over-the-counter creams and serums a patient may be using – which are often ineffective and overpriced. Medical-grade skincare is scientifically proven, potent, and can provide dramatic results – benefitting a wide range of skin concerns from flaky skin to excess oil production, and from rosacea to acne. Skincare consultations and subsequent treatment are a significant boost to your aesthetic portfolio and will provide great benefit to your patient as well as igniting a lucrative revenue stream for your practice.
