With developments in aesthetic technology advancing at lightning speed, what are the top treatment technologies to look out for in 2018? We zone in on the Top 4 Beauty Tech Trends for 2018 that are becoming increasingly popular with both beauty professionals and their clients alike.

1. The Super Facial

Forget facials as you know it — the ‘Super Facial’ is here to cut down time in the treatment room by delivering three clinically proven anti-aging treatments into one fast and enjoyable 30-minute session. Combining oxygen exfoliation therapy technology with radiofrequency skin tightening and ultrasound infusion, the Super Facial works to oxygenate and revitalise dull, lifeless complexions, exfoliate dead skin cells, tighten and contour facial features for a lifted look and brighten hyperpigmentation for a more uniform skin tone. The Super Facial can only be found in salons, spas and clinics working with the Geneo+ facial platform and is definitely one to look out for in 2018.

2. Cryolipolysis body contouring

For clients needing a helping hand to reduce stubborn pockets of fat that won’t budge with diet and exercise, fat freezing machines are delivering promising results. Cryolipolysis works by applying intensive cold temperatures to the target area (such as the abdomen or thighs) inducing a fat reduction process called cell apoptosis. With cryolipolysis machines such as the Criocuum, beauty therapists can strategically reduce unwanted fat by up to 45% and tighten treated skin by up to 74% to reveal a more sculpted silhouette without surgery or post-treatment downtime.

3. Multi-functional tech

Aesthetic technologies that boast multi-functional capabilities and multiple treatment benefits will continue to dominate in 2018. Noteworthy examples include the SuperLUX SHR IPL machine which offers breakthrough fast and painless hair removal as well as a variety of skin corrective treatments, and the UltraLUX V4 IPL workstation, which is arguably the most versatile and value-driven aesthetic technology available on the market with its impressive combination of 12 skin and hair treatments in the one device. When all of its features are activated, the UltraLUX V4 performs Carbon Facials (also known as the China Doll Facial) — a trending facial treatment that quickly and painlessly corrects skin imperfections for a clearer, creamier and more flawless complexion.

4. Observ skin observation

Understanding the true imbalances and underlying conditions of a client’s skin is the first step to developing an accurate treatment plan that will deliver successful and satisfying results. For this reason, skin analysis technologies such as the Observ skin observation platform are becoming more prominent in the professional treatment process. Observ engages the scientific principle of skin fluorescence — equipping therapists with six observation modes to critically examine skin conditions and characteristics beyond what the naked human eye can see. Observ is also operated wirelessly via iPad and boasts impressive side-by-side treatment progress comparisons, making it a sleek way to add an ultra modern and ultra-comprehensive touch to day-to-day skin consults.
