Now that lockdown is over and you may be heading to the office again, the days of wearing your pyjamas during Zoom meetings are over. We must face the world now. Many of us are feeling anxious and stressed during this challenging time and that doesn’t do the skin any favours. Pandemic ageing is a thing. It’s possible that your beauty routine changed or you threw your skincare out of the window altogether. Maybe you are using fewer products now, thinking you may never see your colleagues again. And who needs to put on make-up while wearing a mask?
Now that restrictions are lifted, we are happy to welcome you back to your favourite cosmetic clinic to help boost your confidence. We understand that this time has been challenging, and many of our clients have been staring at their faces more than usual in Zoom calls. The little wrinkles around your mouth and eyes may seem more pronounced on the computer screen and in less than ideal lighting. “Zoom face” is a new phenomenon that has people flocking to the clinic to get a dermal filler or Botox touch-up or to try our world-class anti-ageing treatments. We have safety protocols in place so clients feel safe for their post-lockdown procedures. Today we share how you can boost your confidence with our best cosmetic treatments now that life is getting back to normal.
Please note: no matter how badly you need a filler top-up, if you have a fever, cough or symptoms related to COVID-19, contact your doctor immediately and get well before booking an appointment with our London clinic. We want to keep you and our staff safe.
The First Step Is to Quit Negative Self-Talk
We know it’s easier said than done, but the first step to improving your confidence is to quit negative self-talk. The body positivity movement is all about feeling happy with yourself as you are right at this moment, but you can still want to change something about your appearance. Think about your reasons for wanting to get cosmetic procedures and also consider the risks. If you are considering something drastic like cosmetic surgery, know that little tweaks that do not require surgery are the best first step when you want to change your appearance.
Top Post-lockdown Treatments for “Zoom Face”
If you tend to focus on the little flaws on your face every time you look in the mirror, you would be a good candidate for a non-surgical procedure in our clinic. If a small treatment like softening wrinkles around the mouth or eyes, or even a lip enhancement, gives you an extra confidence boost, we are all for it. It’s not taboo to make small tweaks to your face or body anymore. Consider it the way to reach the best version of yourself all while making you feel more confident to face the world. Below are our most popular cosmetic procedures.
If you possibly acquired some “bad” habits during quarantine — like drinking alcohol more than usual or eating junk food — this hasn’t done your skin any favours. Not to mention the lack of sunshine and vitamin D! We have several treatments that rejuvenate the skin like our chemical peel treatment and micro-needling facial, both of which give your skin a healthy boost. These are great if you have acne problems or dark spots.
Botox and Dermal Fillers
If you didn’t get your Botox or filler top-up before lockdown, the fine lines and wrinkles on your face have probably returned and you are itching to get back into the clinic — especially those returning to work or continuing to see colleagues via Zoom. If you have never tried dermal fillers and are curious, we have many great blogs that will help your research, and you can also book a free consultation so we can answer any questions you may have.
Do you feel like your whole face could use a lift? A surgical facelift procedure is quite risky. It involves a trip to the hospital and an extensive post-treatment downtime. We can rejuvenate your face without having to go under the knife. If you want to boost your entire face, we can create a bespoke package that meets your needs that has a mix of dermal fillers around the face and neck — called a liquid facelift. This option is less expensive and has very little downtime than its surgical counterpart. It’s the best anti-wrinkle treatment we offer, and we can make you look totally natural and refreshed.
Now that lockdown is ending and cosmetic clinics are open again, it’s time to face the world with a fresh new face.
