Top Trends for Medical Aesthetics Training

Top Trends for Medical Aesthetics TrainingEvery year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reveals the top 5 non-surgical medical aesthetics treatments. According to ASPS statistics, “there were 15.9 million surgical and minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2015, a 2 percent increase over 2014.”

At the National Laser Institute, we offer top medical aesthetics training on the most in demand medical aesthetic treatments in the marketplace today. We invite you to continue reading and we’ll show you the key shifts in the medical aesthetics industry and how you can gain a competitive edge with the top trends in medical aesthetics training.

Trend: The Lift

There has been an interesting shift in the types of treatments that are in demand since the year 2000.  “Patients have more options than ever, and working closely with their surgeon, they’re able to focus on specific target areas of the body to achieve the look they desire,” says ASPS President, David H. Song.  

In the past, the most popular plastic surgery was for the facelift. But now other types of lifts are booming including lifts in the breast, but also the buttock, lower body and upper arms.  There are more non-invasive treatments to get a “lift”.

At the National Laser Institute, our 2 Week Comprehensive Laser program offers training on non-invasive body contouring treatments like Velashape and Quantashape.  We also offer training on radio frequency skin tightening and microcurrent treatments which provide a visible lift in lax skin.


For our CE/CME students, we offer the 5 Day Ultimate Injectables Course to provide training with advanced injection areas (upper, mid, and lower face contouring and mid-level lifting) in order to treat a wide variety of aesthetic concerns.  

Trend: Non-Surgical Treatments

According to the ASPS, the top 5 minimally invasive, non-surgical treatments for 2015 were:

  1. Botulinum Toxin Type A (6.7 million procedures, up 1 percent from 2014 and 759 percent since 2000)
  2. Soft Tissue Fillers (2.4 million procedures, up 6 percent from 2014 and 274 percent since 2000)
  3. Chemical Peel (1.3 million procedures, up 5 percent from 2014 and 14 percent since 2000)
  4. Laser hair removal (1.1 million procedures, unchanged from 2014, but up 52 percent since 2000)
  5. Microdermabrasion (800,340 procedures, down 9 percent from 2014 and 8 percent since 2000)
