Non-invasive, aesthetic procedures by a cosmetic doctor like Dr. Charles Dietzek grew significantly in 2015, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Botox® continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic services with 6.8 million procedures performed in 2015. That’s not much of a year-to-year increase from 2014 when 6.7 million Botox® treatments were performed.
While the number of cases of Botox® treatment remained fairly steady, more people turned to other dermal fillers to achieve a more youthful look. In fact, the biggest growing segment was in hyaluronic acid injectables like Belotero® and Juvaderm®. Eight percent more treatments were done with these types of injectables in 2015 compared to 2014.
Chemical peels also saw big growth between 2014 and 2015. The total number of chemical peels increased by 5 percent in 2015.
Trends Indicate a Preference for Natural Appearance
If the 2015 cosmetic surgery statistics are any indication, more and more people are seeking a natural appearance. For example, the total number of breast augmentation surgeries decreased by 2 percent and breast implant removals increased by 4 percent. The number of facelifts, chin augmentations and eyebrow lifts were also down significantly while the number of lip reductions increased by 19 percent.
These statistics show a clear preference for a natural-looking body that doesn’t look overly sculpted or surgically altered. Perhaps that’s why more people are turning to a cosmetic doctor who offers non-invasive treatments like injectables, facial peels or microneedling. These aesthetic options don’t permanently alter your appearance, but they make you look younger, fresher and more vibrant.
‘Liquid Facelifts’ Can Remove a Decade
It’s possible to erase a decade from your appearance using a combination of injectable products and facial treatments. Dr. Dietzek will customize a treatment plan for you using Botox to eliminate expression lines and wrinkles and dermal fillers to restore volume and fill in lines. He may also recommend combining these treatments with a facial peel for maximum benefit.
