One of the buzzwords in the aesthetics industry right now is “tweakments”. From dry lockdown skin, to awkward Zoom angles, it’s no wonder that tweakments have grown in popularity. But what exactly are tweakments? And which tweakments should you consider this autumn?
What are tweakments?
Tweakments is a term used to describe aesthetic treatments that are non surgical, and are designed to make subtle changes to the face, rather than major or dramatic alterations. The aim of these subtle changes is to help you appear more youthful, relaxed and happy, without changing or altering your face to extremes. As a result, there are a range of different tweakment options that can be very effective for a number of different purposes.
What are the most popular autumn tweakments?
Autumn is one of the seasons of the year that brings the most challenges to skin health overall. The change in weather, and the consequences of too much sun in the summer, can lead to damaged skin and changes to the facial shape and structure. As such, tweakments become more popular in general. But what are the most popular tweakments at this time of year? Well, there are several, including:
Chemical peels are a popular autumn tweakment
Choosing a chemical peel in the autumn can be a great option for rejuvenating your skin and replacing your natural glow. In the autumn, the skin can be recovering from UV damage and over exposure to the summer sun, while also attempting to adjust to the constantly changing temperatures between indoor heating and colder, wetter outdoor weather. This can all create dry skin patches, or oily skin patches, as well as skin discolouration. This can also make fine lines and wrinkles more prominent. A chemical peel can completely transform your facial skin by removing the very top layer of skin and triggering deep exfoliation. This ensures that outer skin cells are replaced with new ones, and is sure to leave your skin glowing.
Laser hair removal in the autumn
Laser hair removal is a popular option in the autumn as it tends to be colder, and UV levels are lower. This is important as it means newly lasered areas will be less likely to be exposed to UV rays, improving the results. As laser hair removal is a process that needs to be repeated long term to secure permanent or near permanent hair loss, starting your treatment in the autumn months can also help to ensure that by the time spring and summer roll around, you wont need to be worried about waxing or shaving before enjoying the warmer weather.
Dermal fillers in the autumn
There’s no denying that dermal fillers are popular at all times of the year, but autumn can be a great time for small tweaks to the lips, cheeks or jaw. Dermal fillers dont just add volume and a youthful plumpness to these areas, they can also add vital nutrients and hydration which can brighten your skin and give you a healthy glow.
