The Popularity of Minimally-Invasive Cosmetic Procedures

Ten years ago, cosmetic surgery was usually something reserved for celebrities or the rich. However, as procedures and prices have changed, general attitudes have adapted as well. More and more people, both men and women, are embracing cosmetic surgery instead of growing old “gracefully.”

Even with a good skincare routine and healthy diet, men and women experience the effects of the breakdown of collagen and cellular changes in the skin over time. At PrimeHealthMD, we offer treatments in aesthetics and anti-aging including BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM® XC, to combat the signs of aging that can make you look older, tired and stressed.

BOTOX®, an FDA-approved treatment for the temporary reduction of moderate to severe frown, forehead and/or brow wrinkles, has proven to be a successful wrinkle-fighter for both men and women. This non-surgical treatment relaxes the facial muscles that form frown lines, causing the wrinkles to dissipate. In just a few short minutes with a few tiny injections, you’ll see a dramatic improvement that lasts for months. Both men and women have seen great results from BOTOX®.

In addition to increases in elective surgical procedures, minimally-invasive or “lunchtime” procedures like Botox have skyrocketed in use. In 2005, there were 3.8 million Botox procedures performed, an increase of 388% from 2000. Last year, it was reported that number grew even more to 6.7 million procedures. Age 40 to 54-year-old women are the largest group seeking this option; however, men are increasingly partaking as well, making up 8% of all cosmetic procedures last year.

How are doctors and specialists predicting these minimally-invasive procedures and products will change in the future? One trend being noticed is that more and more younger women are opting for fillers because it fights the battle with deep lines and wrinkles before they ever form. Juvederm, an injectable smooth gel filler that instantly rejuvenates and smooths away wrinkles around your mouth and nose, is gaining popularity. There are also new and exciting injectables that are being reviewed by the FDA that will be sure to make an impact in the industry.
