The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recently released a report revealing statistics on both invasive and non-invasive plastic surgery procedures performed in 2013. Although surgical procedures like breast augmentation, facelift, and rhinoplasty remain the most commonly sought after services, the popularity of non-invasive procedures saw dramatic increase. Over 13 million non-invasive procedures were performed in 2013.
More Patients Still Seeking Botox
Botox was the most commonly performed non-invasive procedure performed. Over 6.3 million treatments were performed last year, around 700% more than in 2000, and that trend will likely continue based on what we have seen this year. Botox is popular because it is effective and relatively easy to receive. The injections only take a few minutes and results last 3 months.
Soft tissue filler procedures also saw a rise in popularity. These include brands like Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero. More than 2.2 million soft tissue filler procedures were performed, a 13% increase over 2012 numbers. Fillers can be used in all areas of the face. The most common areas we treat are the nasolabial folds (the lines running from your nose to your mouth), cheeks and lips. Although the effects are temporary, the results can last from 6 months to two years depending on the product used.
Multiple Uses to Lasers in Non-Invasive Plastic Surgery Procedures
Lasers are used in a variety of non-invasive plastic surgery procedures, from skin resurfacing to hair removal. Because of their various applications, laser treatments have remained popular. More than 2 million laser treatments performed in 2013. At Finesse Plastic Surgery, we perform a wide range of laser procedures, including skin resurfacing and tightening, treatment of red and brown spots, and hair removal.
We find that many patients are interested in making changes to their appearance, but that they don’t want to deal with the downtime associated with surgical procedure. Non-invasive plastic surgery procedures are an attractive alternative for patients seeking an aesthetic improvement with minimal to no recovery time.
At Finesse Plastic Surgery, we have witnessed the growing demand for noninvasive services such as injections and lasers treatment. We’re excited to offer a full range of non-invasive plastic surgery procedures to help you achieve the results you’re looking for.
