Non-Surgical Esthetic Treatments On The Rise

In an April 2017 article from SkinInc.com, it's reported that the North America esthetic services market are estimated to be worth $28.15 billion by the year 2024, increasing at a CAGR of 7.7% for each year.

This data was gathered through a recent Transparency Market Report. According to the Skin Inc.
article, the report broke up esthetic services into surgical services, non-surgical services, and reconstr­uctive procedures. Surgical services were the largest portion of the market share with 43.6% in 2015.

Though not the largest segment, non-surgical services have begun to gain in popularity. Among the most popular non-surgical service treatments were derma fillers, which represented 68.7% of the non-surgical market share.

I have noticed that many spas here on Long Island are adding these types of services with the participation of a licensed Physician. It's a great way to keep facial clients' business "in house" for all their beauty needs.

Adding Natural Volume with Injectables

Today, I would like to discuss facial fillers. What are they? Who needs them? What do they do?
First, the most commonly used fillers, such as Juvederm®, are based on a very natural substance called hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the skin. So that when we inject Juvederm®, we are really just

replacing or enhancing something that is already within us!

Why would someone have a filler? As our skin ages, it loses volumes and sags, producing unwanted lines and wrinkles. Anyone who is experiencing these changes is a candidate for a filler.

And that brings us to the main concept today, volumization. While it used to be thought that correction of wrinkles required injection directly into the lines, we no understand this differently. We know that because of the loss of volume in the face, we must replace that. My preferred filler for that purpose is Juvederm® and it works very well. As volume is replaced, lines and wrinkles lessen and the face takes on a more youthful appearance. 

Thus we have it, volumization!
