Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation: 6 Million Injections and Counting!

We can’t escape the ageing process, but we don’t have to look our age thanks to an ever-expanding menu of cosmetic enhancement treatments. Rejuvenating, affordable, and accomplished quickly with little downtime, non-surgical facial rejuvenation is winning over more and more Australians every day.

It’s not just happening here. Consider these statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons just two years ago:

  • Facelifts performed in the U.S. in 2012 – 120,000
  • Non-surgical facial treatments performed – 6,000,000

More Choices Means Customised Options for Facial Rejuvenation

The main reason that the number of non-surgical cosmetic treatments has grown so drastically is attributed to the sheer number of treatment options. This is extremely appealing to contemporary consumers who demand customisation and individualised treatment plans.

Both men and women feel more confident that there is “something out there” that will help them achieve their rejuvenation goals.

Although you may think of a specific brand of muscle relaxer when you think of treating visible signs of facial ageing, there are actually several types that help smooth dynamic wrinkles.  The same is true of dermal fillers. There are over a half-dozen different types of fillers available that can be used to

  • Enhance lips
  • Fill in facial scars
  • Minimise deeper wrinkles

Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Is In Sync with Today’s Busy Consumer

Time is one of the most precious commodities in the 21st Century. Traditional surgical facelifts require that patients set aside 14 days or more for surgery and recovery. This can be quite challenging for individuals juggling work schedules and family life.

By contrast, non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments can be scheduled during a lunch hour. Cosmetic injections take minutes to administer, and patients can return to work immediately. Results may be evident immediately and last for several months.

Cosmetic Treatments that Provide the Spa Experience without the Spa

People who choose non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments often say their appointments feel like a visit to a spa. Facials, chemical peels, and other resurfacing treatments such as microdermabrasion feel wonderfully indulgent, and the treatments themselves have aspects of pure pampering.

They make a nice break from a stressful day, helping you feel as refreshed as you look.

Non-Invasive Cosmetic Enhancement Makes Believers Out of Sceptics

21st Century consumers are savvy, educated, and demanding. They are hesitant to invest their time and money on a treatment or product unless they are certain tobe satisfied with the results. The high level of satisfaction and low level of risk and complications associated with non-surgical facial rejuvenation serve as powerful endorsements of these age-defying treatments.

Another upside to non-invasive facial rejuvenation is that the effects of the treatments are temporary. People who are hesitant to commit to the lasting changes offered by facial plastic surgery, turn to cosmetic medicine injectables to “test drive” a new look. If they like what they see, they can continue maintenance treatments or choose to opt for a permanent change.

The bottom line: Non-surgical facial rejuvenation is no longer the “future” of cosmetic enhancement. Its time is now.
