The top 4 nonsurgical procedures in the US for men and women are:
1. Botox (3,588,218 patients)
2. Facial filler (1,696,621 patients)
3. Hair removal (828,480 patients)
4. Chemical peel (484, 053 patients)
So why the upsurge in patients receiving non-surgical procedures. Nonsurgical procedures represent affordable non invasive technique which allow patients to look and feel their best. These procedures offer patients an opportunity to literally look better with just a few minutes of time in an aesthetic physician’s practice.
In Dr. Shah’s office, we find that all of these procedures are popular amongst patients of all ages ranging from wanting filler to reshape lips or soften under eye circles, removing unwanted body and facial hair, softening lines with Botox, and improving skin (texture, lines, and pigmentation) with chemical and LASER peels.
Overall, American spent 12 billion dollars on cosmetic procedures with overall 10 million procedures performed in the US alone. The drive for the market is that more and more people are realizing the benefits of investing in themselves with procedures that make them look better, feel more confident, and look younger.
One of the main reasons facial fillers and Botox are so popular is that patients can see immediate results with little to no downtime. It is expected that the market for such procedures will continue to rise with time.
