Increasing numbers of the UK workforce are starting to head back to office environments after months of working from home. However, as we begin to prepare ourselves for face-to-face working again, we have become more conscious of our aesthetics than ever before. Zoom calling has become a necessary part of our corporate routines, forcing us to look at our faces through a more detailed lens, which will now be at the forefront of our minds as we physically engage with our colleagues again. This leads to the question: what are we doing to prepare when it comes to our appearances?
Research from Uvence reveals that over 3 million people in Britain are looking to undergo a cosmetic procedure in 2021 because of the impact of the pandemic on their aesthetics. But as the boom in cosmetic treatments has been catalysed by a year of working from home, it is expected that this is set to increase further as we leave our home set-up for the return to work. Further research found that 9% (3.2 million) of the nation say that the increased number of Zoom meetings and heightened focus on their face have made them reconsider cosmetic surgery options, which will become increasingly apparent over the coming weeks.
While there are a plethora of factors that Brits are preparing for ahead of such a distinct change in their everyday lifestyles, our appearances seem to be topping the list. One survey found that 40% of Brits took lockdown as a prime opportunity to enhance their appearance while out of the office, yet this number is expected to soar as we begin to physically engage with our peers once again. Over the past year, patients have demonstrated a newfound interest in nonsurgical tweakments, which has diversified the cosmetic offerings in clinics.
Lots of people are now opting for more natural and subtle tweakments rather than more dramatic surgeries, especially as a result of lockdown. Uvence is an example of an effective and natural cosmetic treatment – the procedure utilises the regenerative potential of one’s own purified cells for skin rejuvenation, improving the overall texture of skin over the long-term.
