More than 1,000 people have come to the Department of Aesthetic Skin, Ho Chi Minh City Hospital of Dermatology, in the past 7 months to beautify exposed facial areas outside the mask wearing area.
Doctor Tran Nguyen Anh Tu, Deputy Head of the Department of Skin Aesthetics, Ho Chi Minh City Hospital of Dermatology, said that “mask on” – that is, performing cosmetic surgery outside the mask-wearing area – has become a beauty trend since its inception. The city has eased the distance and adapted to Covid-19 so far. Besides, many people also tend to be “masketic”, which means temporarily forgetting the facial defects that have been covered by the mask and focusing on the aesthetics of the exposed area.
Like Mr. Thanh, 45 years old, living in Ho Chi Minh City, he went to a cosmetologist to remove wrinkles in the eyebrow area to “reduce scowl and discomfort” when looking at the online meeting screen. “After a long time of online meetings, opening the camera a lot, I discovered that my brow area was wrinkled and looked like it was always quite tense,” he shared. Moreover, when wearing a mask, the opposite person looks mainly at his eyes and forehead, so he thinks that removing eyebrow wrinkles helps him to be more confident.
Ms. Ha 37 years old, in District 7, changed from the intention of raising her nose to injecting botox to remove wrinkles around the eyes and micro-injection under the eyes. She chose this technique because of its fast implementation, ensuring aesthetics without “having to remove the mask during the time of the wound to ensure epidemic prevention”.
Doctors of Ho Chi Minh City Hospital of Dermatology noted that if before many people had a need for rhinoplasty or lip injections, after social distancing, this demand dropped sharply. Instead, many customers choose cosmetic procedures in areas of the face outside the mask wearing area such as botox injection in the eyebrow area, eye tail, laser tattoo removal, hair removal, micro-point injection under the eyes, wrinkles removal. forehead, filling temples, lifting eyebrows, filling eye sockets…
According to Doctor Tu, many people said that in the middle of last year, when the epidemic peaked, they had to stay at home to have free time to look in the mirror and discover many defects in their bodies. Some others often meet online using the camera a lot, find their face has defects leading to psychological dissatisfaction with appearance, like Mr. Thanh above. Another reason why the demand for aesthetics increases after the epidemic is that many people are stressed and have a psychological crisis, so they want to be more beautiful.
“Many people who previously had the need to lift their nose and inject lips, now wear masks to help cover these defects, so they only focus on aesthetics on the upper half of the face,” explained Dr. Tu.
Doctor, Doctor Hoang Thanh Tuan, Deputy Director of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery Department, National Burn Hospital, Military Medical Academy (Hanoi), also said that now everyone wears masks, so almost only see defects in the open area outside the mask such as wrinkles around the eyes, sunken temples, unbeautiful eyebrows, unclear eyelid folds. Therefore, many Hanoians tend to beautify these details.
“Beauty of the open area outside the mask may become a trend in the future,” forecasted doctor Cao Ngoc Duy, deputy head of the Department of Facial Aesthetics, Duc Giang General Hospital (Hanoi). At this hospital, cosmetic services in the eye area are being chosen the most by customers such as eyelid surgery, eyelid surgery, and eye bag removal. This is a popular cosmetic surgery, affordable cost, quick recovery time, only slightly swollen wound in the first week.
Doctors predict that in the coming time, the general beauty demand will increase with the reopening of the new normal after the pandemic, economic development, many people change their appearance with the desire to have a better working environment. . “Whether major surgery or minor surgery, medical cosmetic surgery, people absolutely do not want cheap plastic surgery to avoid money loss, disability,” Dr. Duy advises.
