Spring Beautiful

Lesley Reynolds, the visionary behind the award-winning Harley Street Skin Clinic renowned beauty and cosmeceuticals expert, best-selling author, and star of ‘Stitch Me, Lift Me, Tuck Me,’ presents an insider’s perspective on the aesthetic trends poised to take centre stage in 2024.

She writes: “In the realm of aesthetics, 2024 is set to be a year of prevention and regeneration. The spotlight is on skin quality as a paramount focus, emphasising products and treatments that contribute to overall health. Scientific advancements in tweakments promise natural results with minimal downtime, marking a departure from hasty solutions.

“A significant shift is underway in patient care, prioritising the identification and treatment of root causes rather than superficial remedies. Holistic and regenerative approaches leverage the body’s innate ability to renew cells, incorporating genetic and DNA analyses for tailored skin rejuvenation solutions. The holistic “360-degree” methodology underscores the importance of internal well-being as a complement to external treatments.

“Here are some of the cutting-edge trends set to define the next twelve months, inviting you to embrace a radiant transformation.”

Preserving Skin Quality with Collagen Banking

Collagen banking takes centre stage in 2024, championing the preservation of skin quality to stave off signs of ageing such as sagging and wrinkles before they manifest. Beginning in one’s 20s and 30s, this preventative measure employs treatments like IPL, PRP, micro-needling, radio frequency, chemical peels, and retinols to stimulate collagen synthesis. Additionally, collagen-stimulating supplements and a collagen-rich diet contribute to banking for future use. The innovative ABG Lab Meso-Xanthin P199 emerges as a standout, utilising over 30 years of stem cell research to reactivate adult stem cells, fostering cellular renewal and restructuring the skin. This bespoke treatment, priced at approximately £500 per session, is recommended weekly for 6–10 weeks, with subsequent sessions every 12–18 months.

Unlocking the Potential of Collagen Supplements

Harnessing the wrinkle-reducing effects of collagen supplements, increasing collagen intake over several months proves beneficial in improving skin elasticity and countering signs of ageing. These supplements stimulate the body’s collagen production, promoting the synthesis of elastin and fibrillin, key proteins for skin structure. The mantra of ‘prevention is smarter than a cure’ encourages the early integration of collagen supplements into skincare routines, ideally beginning in the early-mid 20s.

The Next Frontier: Skin Boosting Injectables

2024 introduces a new era of skin boosters, with a focus on transforming the face’s appearance rather than altering its shape. Polynucleotides, derived from fish sperm mirroring human DNA factors, stand out as a natural way to enhance skin health at a cellular level. These microneedled or injected polynucleotides communicate with cells to stimulate collagen and elastin production, delivering a healthier complexion. Another innovation, Skinvive, serves as an intradermal filler targeting skin quality, providing soft-focus glowing skin that endures for months. Priced from £350 to £700 per treatment, these procedures offer subtle enhancements without visible lumps or bumps.


The Rise of ‘Undetectable Injectables’

In response to the waning demand for overfilled or frozen faces, the quest for the ‘undetectable injectable’ gains momentum. SuneKOS, an amino acid-based injectable, leads the charge by regenerating collagen and elastin, offering wrinkle erasure and volume benefits while remaining virtually undetectable. Applicable across the face, SuneKOS adopts a subtle approach for those seeking a more natural result.

Treating Skin Holistically: Exosome Therapy

Exosome Therapy emerges as a pivotal term in 2024, highlighting its role in repairing and rejuvenating the skin. Featured in medical-grade facials, exosomes derived from plant sources work in tandem with microneedling and laser treatments to switch on skin cell rejuvenation. These treatments prove effective for pigmentation, dark circles, dull, ageing skin, and inflammatory skin conditions. A course of three monthly sessions, priced from £400, is recommended for optimal results.

Embracing Futuristic Technology

The tech-driven enthusiasm continues in 2024, with a heightened interest in procedures enhancing skin texture and tone. Secret Duo by Cutera pioneers a combination of 1540 nm laser and radio frequency microneedling, offering a glow-boosting and collagen-stimulating treatment. Addressing a spectrum of skin concerns, this procedure requires one to three sessions, with results lasting up to 18 months and pricing starting from £1000.

Revolutionising Acne Treatment with AviClear

For acne sufferers, AviClear emerges as a groundbreaking solution. Utilising a revolutionary 1726nm wavelength laser, AviClear selectively targets and suppresses oil-producing glands linked to all types and grades of acne. Positioned as the laser alternative to traditional treatments, AviClear recommends courses of three treatments, with prices starting from £4000, depending on treatment areas and clinic.
