Has Cosmetic Surgery Still Got A Stigma?
There was once a time, anyone considering having some cosmetic surgery would hide their plans from everyone because of the fear of being judged. The stigma surrounding cosmetic procedures was huge – so everyone kept hush about their nips and tucks.
After a cosmetic procedure, people would go into hiding and wait until all evidence was gone before revealing their new plans. However, sometime in the past 10 years, cosmetic procedures have become more mainstream and suddenly everyone lost their worries and embarrassment about going under the knife or the needle.
So what happened in this time?
We have slowly started to get accustomed to seeing people change their appearance in any way they please. Updating your look in this way has become the new body positive – and the new norm. While there’s still a long way to go in this becoming totally accepted, the increased dialogue around cosmetic procedures is certainly a good thing. By opening up the dialogue, these treatments are becoming safer, and in turn, they become more widely accepted. So what is fuelling the demand for beauty treatments and skin treatments?
When celeb share their favourite beauty treatments with the world, their fans are naturally the first to follow in their footsteps. As many beauty treatments such as lip fillers and cheek augmentation become more affordable, they are no longer exclusively for the rich and famous.
The rise of Non-invasive
The beauticians carrying out these treatments are finding more and more ways to enhance people’s features in the more natural way possible, and the good news is that these treatments are safer than ever before. Non-invasive treatments are winning more and more of the market share as they offer pain-free treatments with no recovery period.
The increase in popularity of platforms like Instagram and Pinterest have made it considerably easier to share the results of these treatments with our friends. When we break this down, it becomes apparent that the more people share the more we accept these treatments as normal. The desire to look a certain way on our social networks is also a key factor in driving forward the popularity of these treatments
More natural options
While some people opt to take their beauty treatments to the limits of physical possibility, the increase in more natural and subtle options has driven forward their popularity and led to more people considering them as an option for anti-ageing and enhancement. Treatments like milk peels offer an easy way into the world of cosmetic procedures without the fear of pain or anything going wrong.
