Better Than Plastic Surgery: Medical Aesthetics

It generally takes years of medical school, clinical, and tons of practice in order to become a certified plastic surgeon. Although this position has its benefits, it is a demanding job and industry. Many people today are optioning for non-surgical treatments, such as cosmetic laser and injectables. This is because they cannot afford long recovery times post-surgery as well as shelling out thousands of dollars for a very risky surgical treatment. The medical aesthetics industry is becoming more and more in demand as consumers become more aware of their options.

Statistics don’t lie. From 2011 to 2012, there was a 7% decrease in breast augmentation and 1% decrease in liposuction, according to the ASAPS. Nonsurgical treatments increased from 2011-2012, and statistics report there was a 8% increase in Botox, 5% increase in soft tissue filler, and 4% increase in laser hair reduction treatments!

Cosmetic injectables, like Botox and dermal fillers, have been ranked the top two non-surgical cosmetic treatments for the past few years. This is because they have the power to take years off of people’s appearance without the expensive cost or lengthy downtime. It’s a virtually painless treatment with results that are instant.

Cosmetic laser treatments have also come into play within the last decade. Because of the result of advanced technology, the health and beauty industry is able to offer a variety of cosmetic laser services. Some of the most popular treatments include laser hair reduction, laser wrinkle reduction, laser tattoo removal, laser acne reduction, and many more. People prefer cosmetic laser treatments over plastic surgery because the risks are lower, it’s less expensive, and they are happy with the youthful and rejuvenated results.
