7 Beauty Trends We Don’t Recommend And What To Do Instead!

In the ever-evolving world of aesthetics, beauty trends come and go. While some may promise instant results and Instagram-worthy looks, not all trends are created equal. As a team of dedicated aesthetic practitioners at La Fuente Clinic, we believe in providing our clients with safe, effective and scientifically proven treatments. Here, we discuss 7 beauty trends that may be tempting but are best approached with caution. Get ready to discover some alternatives that will truly enhance your natural beauty!

Extreme Overplucking

While ultra-thin eyebrows were once insanely popular, we now know that fuller brows can frame your face and enhance your features beautifully. Instead of overplucking, embrace your natural shape and consider eyebrow grooming techniques like microblading or HD Brows to achieve a fuller, well-defined look that’s at the heart of a lot of modern beauty trends.

DIY Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can be a powerful tool for skin rejuvenation, but attempting them at home can be risky. Improper application and incorrect product selection can lead to skin damage and potential scarring. For safe and effective results, trust professional practitioners who can customise the peel to your skin type and provide the necessary aftercare guidance.

Sunbed Tanning

While a sun-kissed complexion can be appealing, exposing your skin to harmful UV rays is not worth the risk. Sunbeds may promise a shortcut to a tan, but they increase the likelihood of premature ageing, sunspots and skin cancer. Instead, opt for safer beauty trends like a spray tan or self-tanning products for a healthy and natural-looking glow.

Overdoing The Filler

One of the beauty trends that has been making waves recently is the ‘butterfly lip’ trend. This involves injecting dermal fillers strategically to create a pouty, uplifted shape reminiscent of butterfly wings. While it may seem intriguing, we urge caution when considering this look.

Achieving perfect balance and symmetry with lip fillers requires the expertise of a skilled practitioner who understands facial anatomy and proportions. Going overboard with dermal fillers can result in an unnatural appearance and potential complications. At La Fuente Clinic, our experienced professionals prioritise creating subtle enhancements that complement your unique features, so you can confidently embrace your own natural beauty.

DIY Microneedling

Microneedling has gained popularity for its potential to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture. However, attempting it at home without professional supervision can lead to infections, scarring and other complications. For safe and effective microneedling, consult a qualified aesthetic practitioner who can tailor their treatment to your specific needs.

At-Home Laser Hair Removal

While laser hair removal is a fantastic long-term solution for unwanted hair, attempting it at home with over-the-counter devices can be risky. They often lack the precision and power required for effective results and may cause burns, discolouration or even hair growth stimulation. Ditch the DIY beauty trends and invest in professional laser hair removal treatments that provide superior outcomes and ensure your safety.

Excessive Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections can be a game-changer for minimising fine lines and wrinkles. However, beauty trends have led to excessive use, which can result in an expressionless appearance, frozen features and even eyebrow drooping. Our experienced and reputable practitioners can skillfully administer this type of treatment to achieve natural-looking results while preserving your facial expressions.
