A feature in Allure looks at the plastic surgery and non-surgical trends expected to dominate 2018.
The feature says:
“As far as cosmetic procedures go — 2017 was the unofficial Year of Plumped-Up Lips.
“While lip augmentation is still on the rise, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) predicts some non-lip-related procedures will be all the rage in 2018.”
Four cosmetic procedure trends forecast in the feature were:
- Laser bra lift – a tightening procedure for a non-surgical and implant-free lift
- BOTOX 2.0 – new cosmetic injection formulations expected to launch in the coming year
- Labiaplasty – increasing in popularity as stigma fades
- Eye rejuvenation – specifically use of dermal fillers to rejuvenate the eyes

Non-Surgical Eye Rejuvenation
The eyes are certainly an area with great potential, as clients recognise that the eyes are a great giveaway of age. The skin is delicate and often the eyes are the first area to show signs of ageing with fine lines appearing as early as the late 20’s.
So there is real demand for procedures to give younger-looking eyes without the need for surgery.
One popular option for rejuvenating the eye area is BOTOX® wrinkle relaxing injections, which can be effective in tackling laughter lines and crow’s feet in the eye area.
The Allure article specifically mentions the use of dermal fillers. Traditionally these are used to replenish lost volume in the face and lips. Great skill and caution must be exercised when using fillers around the eyes; althoug more recently, advanced use of dermal fillers has been used more holistically and strategically to provide structure and a ‘lift’ effect which smoothes out the skin. The procedure known as the 8-Point Face Lift (and Mulberry House Clinic’s own, more sophisticated development the Multi-Point Face Lift) use fillers to create a more holistic rejuvenation effect. This includes the eye area within the whole context of facial rejuvenation.
Yet a new approach now offers patients the option of achieving a non-surgical eye lift with stunning results.
The latest development for eye rejuvenation is the Plexr Soft Surgery System.
Plexr® was launched at Mulberry House Clinic & Laser Centre during 2017.
The technology involved in Plexr tightens the skin around the eyes without any injections or surgery – yet it provides results which can rival those of surgical procedures such as upper blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) and lower blepharoplasty (eye bag removal).
Plexr® treatment uses plasma energy and a process of ionisation which causes the skin tissues to tighten.
Dr John Tanqueray explains:
“One of the commonest problem areas we are asked about is the skin around the eyes, as we tend to develop heaviness and sagging above the eyes, and crepey and crinkled skin under the eyes.”
“Up to now we have been able to offer some subtle improvements with treatments like BOTOX®, PRP and skin creams, and some more helpful improvement with Infini, but otherwise for a more significant result the choice has only been surgery.”
“The great news is that we now have an option for a significant improvement without resorting to surgery. Early results we have seen so far have been encouraging.”
