For many waxing and shaving can be a chore and can come with pain and razor burns, so it’s no surprise that laser hair removal is the UK’s most popular beauty treatment. Each month, 90,500 Brits are searching online for laser hair removal like this laser hair removal in Huntsville, AL, which consists of a laser emitting a light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair and when the light energy is converted to heat, it damages the hair follicle delaying future hair growth.

Lumenis SPLENDOR X is the gold standard of hair removal and combines both Nd:YAG and Alexandrite laser systems for blended emission. Instead of firing a single wavelength at a time the SPLENDOR X fires both wavelengths simultaneously in adjustable amounts to suit the skin type and hair types for enhanced results. Price Dependent on Salon (on average £600 – £1,200 for 6 sessions across the UK).

Nail strength has been a real core beauty value, with many people turning to Builder Gel for their nails, which explains why builder gel has become the second most searched for treatment with 60,500 searches each month.

Microneedling like this microneedling in Vaughn, Ontario has quickly become one of the fastest growing treatments in the UK with 49,500 UK searches for it each month! This treatment involves pricking the skin with tiny, sterilized needles. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger. 

Med spas like offer RF-Microneedling with latest in technology SylfirmX, which is the only FDA-approved RF-Microneedling device with dual wave technology. This means it has multiple skin enhancing benefits which go way beyond the capabilities of other RF-Microneedling treatments.


With lots of celebrities showing off perfectly sculpted brows on red carpets, it’s no wonder Brow Lamination is in the UK’s top 6 most searched beauty treatments with 40,500 searches for it each month. Brow Lamination is a beauty process that restructures your eyebrow hairs, ensuring that they all go in the same direction.

As we look to cut down the cost of our beauty routines, Brow Lamination is something you can achieve at home with the help of ARDELL Brow Lamination Kit (Superdrug £19.99) which includes every step to create smooth, groomed, and shaped brows at home that last up to 5 weeks.


Filler has hit a few of the most searched for spots with ‘Lip Filler’, ‘Cheek Filler’. ‘Undereye Filler’ and ‘Chin Filler’ all in the top 15 most searched for beauty treatments with 40,500, 9,900, 9,900, and 6,600 monthly searches respectively. 

Élan Laser Clinics offer a range of injectable treatments to help you fight the signs of ageing and turn back the clock without the need for surgical procedures. All of the cosmetic injectables they use are FDA-approved, genuine products of medical standards. Their cosmetic procedures are only carried out by fully qualified and experienced Registered Nurse Practitioners who work with you to achieve your dream results. 


With speculation of multiple celebrities having Buccal Fat Removal, searches for this treatment have hit new heights with 18,100 monthly searches. Cosmetic Doctor and Lumenis Practitioner, Dr Saleena Zimri says; “The buccal fat pad is an isolated fat pocket that sits just below the cheekbone on each side of the face, almost directly above the lower lip. The extraction of this fat pad has been performed to contour the cheekbone for years, as it helps to define a rounder face shape, giving it permanent structure, without the use of makeup. I have seen a huge spike in popularity in the past 6 weeks, as we have seen more celebrities adopting the look.

The procedure can be done under general or local anaesthetic, with a small incision being made inside of the cheek. The fat is then gently teased out through this small incision. This will happen on both sides of the cheek over a period of around 45-60 minutes, before dissolvable stitches are placed to close the incisions. Afterwards, the healing and recovery time is a few days, by then you should be able to return to work. However, visible signs of swelling may not disappear for around 4-6 weeks. Anyone considering buccal fat removal should consider the longer-term implications too. Well-defined cheek hollows and less fat on the face looks good now in younger patients, but as we age, we lose volume in our face, and this can cause us to look visibly older. I wouldn’t recommend this procedure to anyone over the age of 40, as it may lead to an appearance that enhances the visible signs of ageing. Also, if your face is already angular, buccal fat removal could make you look gaunt, and older than you are. 

There is a non-invasive alternative – Lumenis NuEra® Tight is the latest state-of-the-art technological advancement that uses radiofrequency to ‘snatch’ the face. The treatment heats a specific area of the skin and tissue layer to create new collagen and give a desired toning and sculpting effect which is catered to individual needs. NuEra® Tight can be used for standalone solutions for fat reduction and skin tightening, to give that desired contoured look that’s trending.” Price Dependent on Salon (approximately £200 per session).

Rolling into a top spot is the Derma Roller which gets 4,400 UK searches a month. A derma roller is a skin care device used to help rejuvenate the skin, treat acne scarring, and reduce signs of aging. The good news is that you can get these benefits with derma rollers at home. Beauty e-tailer Face The Future have a wide range of Derma Rollers, including Swiss Clinic Skin Roller £59 and PharmaClinix Dermarollex £49.99.
