Is Social Media Defining Aesthetic Trends In The UK?
Are the aesthetic trends in the UK all down to social media?
The success of face-to-face social media apps, like FaceTime and Skype, is encouraging adults to take more care in their appearance and even seek cosmetic and aesthetic treatments to improve their looks, according to leading experts.
These popular video-call forms of communication- popular for both personal and business use- mean distance is no longer an issue when face-to-face communication is needed.
According to some plastic surgeons the increase in people using technology, and being able to see an image of themselves while they are talking, has made people more conscious of their looks- notably double chins, sagging skin and eyebags.
Consequently, cosmetic doctors and surgeons are now inundated with requests for a trend known as the FaceTime Facelift.
Coventry-based Cosmetic Doctor and owner of the APSARAS Clinic in the west Midlands, Dr Thevendra, said of the trend:
“It is true; we all make our necks (for example) look worse when we look down. Many people, especially grandparents wanting to chat with their grandkids, are insecure about how they look while video chatting with loved ones,” he said.
“There has definitely been an increase in demand for face and neck treatments like thread lifts, as well as anti-ageing wrinkle treatments like dermal fillers and muscle relaxing injections,” he concluded.
