Popular Cosmetic Procedures in 2021 So far

Unlike previous years, the aesthetic trends for 2021 have been slightly different so far. Even though some routine treatments such as Botox, fillers, laser hair removal Dubai etc have been on the rise this year too. But overall, we can observe a different aesthetic approach now, it is more about skincare cosmetic procedures rather than going for treatments.

One thing that 2020 has made us realise is that we don’t care for our skin. After spending an eternity in front of screens last year, we all have become aware of flaws and shortcomings. And, as a result, 2021 has been a year of skincare so far. This has resulted in the rise of aesthetic treatments focused more towards skincare.

On this note, let’s take a look at some of the most popular aesthetic treatments that have been trending these days.

Blue Light Protection

With work from home going on, we are bound to spend most of our day in front of the screen. This has led to a new problem that is hyperpigmentation and signs of ageing due to blue light. Studies show that overexposure to blue light has a negative effect on our skin as well as our eyes. Blue light can create more persistent and darker hyperpigmentation especially in people with darker skin tones.

Moreover, research has further revealed that blue light also causes signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. This rising concern has resulted in the introduction of blue light protective skincare products.


Profhilo is a cosmetic treatment that focuses on enhancing the texture of skin. During this treatment, cosmetic experts inject hyaluronic acid into the skin which revives its lost glow. These injections help in making the skin more hydrated, refresh, smooth and younger-looking.

The areas targeted during Profhilo are:

  • Sides of the face.
  • Skin texture
  • Skin tone
  • Neck region.
  • Décolleté. 

Even though this procedure is comparatively new, but due to the amazing end results, it is becoming quite popular.

Tear Trough Filler

Tear trough fillers are a special type of fillers that reduce the depth of the tear trough. The reduction in the depth of tear trough makes the face appear fuller and younger. Because of the stress and anxiety, the under-eye area becomes more prone to under-eye bags and tear troughs.

By injecting dermal fillers in this area, aesthetic experts can readily reduce eye bags and tear troughs. In current times, this part of the face needs special attention, as it’s the only visible feature since the rest is covered by the mask.  

Facial Optimisation

With the high demand for ongoing Zoom calls, people are looking for less dramatic options that will make them appear naturally ready. Thus,, the trend of getting minor facial tweakments is becoming more popular. People as young as 39 want to get their facial features optimised without appearing dramatically different. Aesthetic experts are making use of Botox along with other fillers to naturally treat their face.    

Salt Facial

The salt facial is an amazing addition to the facial technology. During this facial, the natural exfoliating and healing properties of salt are utilised for giving the skin a fresh and smooth look.

Firstly, the machine exfoliates the upper dead layer of skin from the patient’s face and then ultrasound is used to stimulate the growth of vital nutrients, which ultimately replenishes the skin. Finally, LED light therapy is used to treat any inflammation that the skin might have. The blue light in the LED helps in killing harmful bacteria and heal the inflammation whereas the red light stimulates the production of collagen.

The end results of this facial are younger, smoother and radiant-looking skin.    


Another revolutionary facial treatment that has been in the limelight for quite some time now is Hydrafacial. It is a three-step involving medical-grade facial technique that is FDA approved. Being a patent skincare treatment, you can easily get in medical spas, dermatologist clinics or from a reputable cosmetic clinic.

As stated above, Hydrafacial involves three steps.They work deeply on the skin to produce long-lasting results. Firstly, deep cleansing of the skin is done to remove any impurities. This step also relaxes the skin’s outer surface.

Secondly, the experts use mild abrasion to remove dead skin, unclog pores and uncover the underlying fresh layer of skin. Lastly, serums are poured on the skin to saturate its surface with antioxidants and peptides. The result of these steps is youthful skin that is fully hydrated and nourished.

The reason behind the rising popularity of hydrafacial is not only the smoother and radiant skin rather its the visible reduction in the signs of ageing i.e., fine line and wrinkles. After undergoing hydrafacial, the lost youthful appeal of the skin is revived. The skin becomes more elastic and firm with eve and vibrant skin tone.  


Like every other year, the trend of getting fillers is on the rise in 2021 too. But instead of going for extreme tweakments, people are now inclined towards subtle tweaks that are more natural-looking. 


Like 2020, 2021 is also a year of non-invasive body contouring procedures, including EmSculpt. 

During this procedure, cosmetic surgeons make use of high-intensity electromagnetic waves to melt extra layers of fat from the body. The best part of this treatment is that it doesn’t require any downtime and the results are quite long-lasting. Additionally, this treatment is very fast, you just need thirty minutes for a single session. It is well suited for trouble areas such as

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Calves
  • Thighs
  • Flanks


As wearing a mask is becoming the new norm, eyes are getting the entire spotlight in contrast to other facial features. As a result, eyebrows are also gaining more attention and techniques like brow lamination and microblading have become quite popular.

Using these techniques, one can easily shape their brows for longer times, unlike the routine brow shaping that they can achieve through plucking. Microblading is like a semi-permanent tattoo that enhances the brow shape and makes it appear naturally fuller.


Not exactly a skincare treatment, but still it is very much in demand.. Using this technique, aesthetic experts can readily get rid of the excess fat deposits.

This treatment is based on the freeze and thaw technique known as cryolipolysis that makes use of freezing temperatures to kill extra fat cells. During this procedure, the cosmetic surgeon freezes the underlying fat cells using a hand-held device. The frozen dead cells are later broken down and their residual gets excreted from the body.

The whole procedure of coolsculpting is entirely painless and doesn’t require any downtime. This makes it quite convenient to get as the patients can resume their activities immediately after getting their session.

However, the best part of this procedure is that its results are permanent and the fat deposits don’t return to the treated areas. It is suitable for stubborn fat deposits such as in areas like your

  • Double Chin
  • Flanks
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Love handles
  • Banana rolls
  • Lower back
  • Sides, etc.  


Again, not a skincare treatment, but certainly one of the most popular cosmetic procedures out there. It’s popularity has risen a lot in recent years. Now, many cosmetic centres offer liposuction in Dubai.

This procedure makes use of suction technique to suck out all the excessive fat from your body. Using this technique, the plastic surgeons can remove excess layers of fat from the patient’s body returning them back to their desired body shape. Overall this procedure is safe but as it is a surgery so it requires some downtime.

The areas generally treated in lipo are:

  • Abdomen
  • Lower belly
  • Buttock and thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Check and back
  • Neck and chin

These are some of the cosmetic procedures that have been trending this year so far. If you plan to get any of them, make sure to choose a reliable and reputable clinic. Furthermore, the aesthetic experts must be experienced as well. Only then you will be able to gain the maximum benefits of the treatment you have selected.
