Hello there,

Hope you are all well. As promised, I’m back to you with FTT Big barometer: what’s in and what’s out for 2021.

Trend predicting is tricky business.  Who would’ve guessed that face masks would be the biggest selling item in 2020 or that Zoom face would be a thing?  I always like to have my finger on the pulse of what is happening in medical aesthetics and my normal information sources is attending all big international and national conferences, trade shows, presentations, seminars, training events and meetings that I have had the privilege of attending for many years so that I could bring all the marvels of modern medical aesthetics back to Scotland and to our clinics.  But where one door closes another is sure to open and so the virtual online world has definitely come into its own for giving and receiving information much more so than ever before.  I spend much more time “creating content” for all our social media platforms, to inform, educate and maybe even entertain you at times?  For those that didn’t know we have 2 Facebook platforms, one for North of Scotland, Inverness  and one Central Scotland.  We also have two Instagram platforms, FTT SKIN CLINICS  and FTT SKIN.  Anyhoo, my point is we’d like to hear what you would like to know more about what you would like to hear from us.  Thank you for your feedback so far on the stories we’ve posted on our social media platforms as to what you would like more of and some great ideas of content for 2021.

  1. I predict there will be a strong move away towards a more natural look enhancing, upgrading what nature has given you rather than one size fits all filler packages. Some practitioners have lost their way a bit with some quite unnatural almost masculine looks looks and we’ve noticed a big uptake with more younger patients coming to us for our signature, artistic, beautiful, undetectable rejuvenation. 
  2. Restart, Reset and Rediscover your own best version of yourself.  Already lots of people looking for alternative to just volumizing and freezing.  
  3. There will be a far greater emphasis on skills not mils as well as a move away from non medics in unregulated premises as people want the security of a safe, regulated, registered medical clinic with trained medical staff.  People want to feel safe, secure, and cared for. 
  4. I do see more combination treatments for face and body being popular more so in 2021. More people have a better understanding about medical aesthetics and that your face is made up of different layers that is fat pads, skin, muscle, ligaments and bone and these needs are taken into consideration in your treatment planning.  Skin tightening, lifting, filling, smoothing of faces.  Body treatments are similar in that they take into consideration, diet, lifestyle, height, weight, skin, and fat to get the best results for you.
  5. Our FTT Bespoke facials will go from strength to strength and we will be adding in other treatment modalities to the 20 treatments already available at FTT for your results driven 1 hour treatment including Photo Therapy and Obagi Blue Radiance peels. 
  6. At home Skin Routines twice a day with our help, support, guidance and advice over the phone or by video with our expert team have been hugely popular. People are going to the shops much less and want great results for their skin without leaving home.  You don’t want to make expensive mistakes so you are discussing your skin with us who can diagnose, assess, prescribe if required. This will be even more popular in 2021. 
  7. FTT Bespoke Body Treatments that include weight loss and fat loss are already popular but this will explode too as more people are aware of obesity as a disease and want to do something about it.  We will be launching Dimagra Keto Meal Replacement as well as Prescription weight loss pens available on line and in clinic Fat Freezing, Skin tightening to all body areas as well as fat dissolving injections for face and body.  We will also be offering referrals for liposuction and bariatric services with our surgical partners.
  8. More specialist treatments such as Collagen stimulating injectables, such as Sculptra are relaunching in Q1 which we are already very familiar with and very excited to be bringing to you.  Long lasting and very natural with new methods of delivery. Ellanse will boom too in 2021 as more and more younger people recognise and understand about collagen and want to keep theirs for as long as possible whilst looking great but without the over filled look of over use of dermal fillers.
  9. Thread lifts will be massive in 2021 with Silhouette Soft threads increasing in popularity with an younger market from 30’s onwards as they already recognise that they want to look as good for as long as possible lifting and stimulating skin and facial tissue rather thanvolumizing on its own.
  10.  PDO threads will be immensely popular as we innovate their use in areas such as noses, temples, eyes, lips, necks, and body.
  11. Anti wrinkle treatments will increase in popularity again as more people realise what an amazing prescription treatment used widely in general medicine and in medical aesthetics for rosacea, sweating, lip flip, gummy smiles, teeth grinding, pebble chin, downturned mouth, neck bands and is phenomenal when used in conjunction with other treatments. 

And finally,  Video consultations are back on line.  It’s been a joy catching up with you and hope to see more of you on line soon.  If I don’t see you on line through the week, I’ll see you on the socials.  You take care of each other and keep that glass half full.  If there’s anything you’d like to know more about then do let me know.
