While the new year will see many attempt to turn over a new leaf, it seems certain old habits die much harder than others – especially when it comes to beauty.
According to Transform, cosmetic and non-surgical cosmetic procedures will still be very much en trend in the UK in 2014.
“There is a growing awareness of the different types of surgery available to people, coupled with the increasing desire to look and feel at your best,” says Shami Thomas from Transform. “Patients come to us as they want to feel good about their bodies and surgery can help them, and ultimately improve their self-confidence.
“Whilst surgical procedures are still very popular, it’s the non-surgical procedures that are proving to be a key theme and this trend is set to continue into 2014 and beyond.”
Here are Transform’s predictions for the hottest cosmetic surgery trends for 2014:
Breast Surgery
Responsible for over 80,000 breast augmentations, Transform shines the spotlight firmly on society’s fascination with women’s twin peaks and suggests that the allure of boobs – whether to have them bigger, smaller or more pert – will continue to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the UK. Welcome news for a country that is united in its love for all things boobilicous.
Chin Implants
Women will continue to aspire to capture Hollywood glamour and opt to have chin implants – a procedure revealed in 2013 to have been undertaken by movie starlet, Marilyn Monroe. The procedure adds definition and balances facial features, producing instant and significant changes in the profile of patients – serving to inject a new bout of confidence into those with a weak or receding chin.
Enquiries for chin implants have doubled since 2010, with 60% of queries coming from women wishing to alter the silhouette of their faces and Transform expects the desire for a striking and defined chin to continue far into 2014.
Tummy Tucks
For those who’ve been left with excess skin after losing weight or following having a baby, a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is fast becoming the solution for many unconfident Brits. For those left hanging with stretched skin, and weakened muscles, this is fast becoming one of the most popular procedures as it takes away loose skin and tightens up the muscles. And 2014 is sure to see a continued rise in people wanting to fold up their saggy skin and opt for a slimmer, more toned tummy.
Brachioplasty or ‘Bingo Wing’ Surgery
Brachioplasty is the removal of excess, aging skin from the upper arms – often referred to as ‘bingo wings’ and gives tighter, more toned and youthful arms. An ever increasingly popular treatment among mature ladies who feel self-conscious about their ‘flappy’ upper arms or for those who have lost significant amounts of weight and want to tighten up the skin.
Vaginoplasty
The quest for a ‘designer vagina’ has intensified, with labiaplasty and vaginoplasty amongst the UK’s fastest growing cosmetic surgery procedures.
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of, or reshape, the labia minora – either for medical or aesthetic reasons – while vaginoplasty ‘tightens’ the vagina, a procedure that is particularly popular among women who have given birth.
Transform reports that enquiries for the procedures have grown from 2,400 in 2010 to over 3,500 in 2013. Such results suggest that more and more women will feel empowered to undergo a vaginoplasty procedure in the coming year – and this is certainly set to be the surgery on everyone’s lips in 2014.
Non-surgical
2013 saw a whole host of celebrities under the spotlight as having undergone non-surgical treatments from Kim Kardashian to Coleen Rooney and Sharon Osbourne. With non-surgical procedures accounting for 75% of the cosmetic industry*, these treatments are the ones to watch.
The Non-Surgical Face-Lift
Anti-ageing treatments such as dermal fillers, Botox and chemical facial peels are fast becoming a must on beauty-lovers’ lists.
And combined, they provide the ideal ‘face-lift’ that is seen to be taking over the surgical face-lift; they restore the contour of the face without the need for any surgery.
A combination of wrinkle and line smoothing treatments, and dermal fillers result in a more refreshed, and line-free look that plumps up skin, minimises marionette lines and gives a rejuvenated look that is proving ideal for today’s youth-seekers. An increasing number of women want to stop the signs of ageing without surgery – and with such glowing results and minimal recovery time after these procedures, we’ll see the trend for non-surgical facelifts continue for years to come.
Laser Hair Removal
A treatment used for the removal of excess or unwanted hair, laser hair removal works by destroying the base of the hair follicle that is the source of new hair growth. Used on a variety of skin types, with minimum fuss and maintenance, it’s becoming the number one choice for those on the go wanting smooth, hair-free body zones.

We often have to postpone or cancel patient treatments due to sun damage – or at least the thread of sun damage – if patients are, or are planning to go on holiday or sunbathe. We continually campaign throughout the year about the importance of caring for your skin and the damage that exposure to the sun can cause. During the summer months, the team at Dr. Bishara’s office have to reschedule many appointments for clients who have just returned from their summer holiday and have tanned skin. We do this to ensure the safety of their clients. If we were to treat a client using a laser when their skin is sun damaged, patients could be left with severe burns and scars from the treatment.
So why not make the most of laser treatments this Spring- before summer gets here? Try laser hair removal treatments, which gives you the opportunity to say good-bye to waxing and shaving.

Just think of all the extra time you’ll have to spend at the beach when it is warm out. For more information check out https://www.markbisharamd.com/medspa/ for information on starting the hair removal process now.

So if you are planning to under go this type of treatment NOW would be the best time to schedule your appointment.  Please call us for more information at (817) 473-2120 or email [email protected].

 


If you have goals for longer-term hair removal/reduction and are sick of shaving and waxing, lasers might be able to solve your hairy woes. Laser Hair Removal is the best and most precise way to get rid of unwanted hair. It’s also the best option for people who experience breakouts from every other method. Lasers can leave more permanent results than other hair-removing alternatives. Hair removal lasers are great for the under arms (armpits), legs, arms, groin, back, chest and face. The darker the hair, the better the result. Lighter skin tones tend to have fewer reactions, but lasers can be used to treat all skin types. Also, they make life much easier for women that have to shave every day and find it time consuming or cumbersome.
Since hairs grow at different times, multiple treatments will be needed for all patients at intervals of four to six weeks. Virtually pain-free, safely and visibly reduces unwanted hair over a series of 6-9 treaments.

The ideal season for hair removal is one with the least amount of sun exposure. Because we spend a lot of time in the sun in the summertime, laser hair removal poses the least risk in the wintertime. Sun stimulates melanin production in the skin, producing the deeper pigment we recognize as a tan. While bronzing in the sun may be sought after by some, it is one of the biggest adversaries when it comes to laser hair removal as well as any anti-aging efforts you may undergo. When your skin is at its lightest, the chances of any skin color changes following hair removal are minimized, allowing your laser technician to treat you at the optimal setting for your skin type and hair characteristics to create the most desirable results.
Another benefit to undergoing laser hair removal in the winter before bathing suit season arrives is so that you will have optimal results by the time summer arrives. To make your appointment, please call us today at (817) 473-2120. Connect with Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa on Facebook, for the latest skincare news and information.
 
 

Your skin spends all day every day protecting your body from the elements. Over the years, the toll of being the first line of defense against the sun, wind, toxins, UV rays, and cigarette smoke, not to mention stress and poor nutrition, begins to show. The skin loses the smoothness and resilience it once had, and fine lines appear near the eyes, the mouth, the forehead, and across the cheeks. While facelift surgery is the optimal treatment for deep creases and jowls, skin rejuvenation procedures at our offices in Mansfield and Southlake corrects sun-damaged skin, unevenly pigmented skin, and age spots.

Dr. Mark Bishara’s Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa offers a variety of laser treatments for correction of skin tone and texture, acne, fine lines and wrinkles, spider veins, unwanted hair, and tattoo removal.

Skin Resurfacing

One of the most popular anti-aging procedures that improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and various other texture concerns. Minimal downtime is expected.
Skin resurfacing can be used to treat:

  • Wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Crow’s feet
  • Brown spots
  • Blotchiness
  • Precancerous growths
  • Acne
  • Chicken pox scars
  • Superficial facial scars

ClearLift- Non-Ablative Fractional Skin Remodeling

A great alternative to skin resurfacing. Offers significant improvement to fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring without downtime or discomfort.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is ideal for patients with dark hair and light skin, although nearly anyone with unwanted facial or body hair can benefit from this procedure. This procedure can be performed on the lip, chin, neck, back, arms, legs, bikini area and more.
After laser hair removal, patients may experience redness, puffiness and sunburn sensations for the first few days. You may return to work and other regular activities as soon as you feel comfortable. Three to seven days after treatment, patients may notice what appears to be a re-growth of hair, but is actually a shedding of the treated hair, which will fall out and not grow back.
Since hairs grow at different times, multiple treatments will be needed for all patients at intervals of four to six weeks. Virtually pain-free, safely and visibly reduces unwanted hair over a series of 6-9 treaments.

Many women, who are thinking about having laser hair removal treatments, wonder when the best time would be to start their treatment course.
Whilst laser hair removal can be successful at any time of the year, the cooler autumn and winter months are generally the best times to book an appointment for treatment because the risk of sun damage tends to be a little lower during these seasons than in the likes of spring and summer.
We often have to postpone or cancel patient treatments due to sun damage – or at least the thread of sun damage – if patients are, or are planning to go on holiday or sunbathe.
The winter months bring cooler temperatures and fewer hours of sunlight meaning people tend to cover up with their winter woollies. The cold, dark days also mean that people stay indoors a little more, which means there is less chance of them getting exposed to the sun.
We continually campaign throughout the year about the importance of caring for your skin and the damage that exposure to the sun can cause. During the summer months, the team at Dr. Bishara’s office have to reschedule many appointments for clients who have just returned from their summer holiday and have tanned skin. We do this to ensure the safety of their clients. If we were to treat a client using a laser when their skin is sun damaged, patients could be left with severe burns and scars from the treatment.
So why not make the most of laser treatments this winter? Try laser hair removal treatments courses, which gives you the opportunity to say good-bye to waxing and shaving.
So the moral of the story is; winter is a great time to get laser hair removal done-and just think of all the extra time you’ll have to spend at the beach when it is warm out.
