When we look at today’s trends in medical aesthetics, it’s no surprise to our team that people still can’t get enough of BOTOX COSMETIC®. At our Vancouver-area medi-spa locations, this injectable product and similar variations including Dysport® and XEOMIN® are consistently patient favorites, thanks to their reliable anti-aging capabilities. It’s a trend that extends far beyond the walls of our clinics.
In this blog post, we’ll take a look at why these treatments are so popular and how our medi-spa professionals use them to help men and women rejuvenate the way they look without the need for surgery.
Why BOTOX Takes the Top Spot
When you glance at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ 2018 national plastic surgery statistics, you’ll quickly notice the popularity of BOTOX. What many patients may not know is that Dysport and XEOMIN work in essentially the same way and can deliver comparable results. They all contain botulinum toxin, which is a purified protein derived from bacteria. It works to smooth lines by safely relaxing specific muscles that repeatedly contract and cause wrinkles.
People love these products because they can be used to both reverse and prevent signs of aging. They also love the affordability, quick treatment times, and minimally invasive properties of the injectable approach. Dermal fillers are becoming increasingly popular for the same reason.
The Growing Popularity of Cosmetic Enhancements
Another trend you may notice in the 2018 data is the rise of cosmetic procedures as a whole. This increasing popularity may be due to fading stigma and increased exposure as more people open up about the role of cosmetic enhancements in their lives.
ASPS president Alan Matarasso believes the growing diversity of procedures is behind the trend. New procedures, both surgical and nonsurgical, and advancements in technology now allow people to solve cosmetic concerns that may not have been treatable before. There’s an increased flexibility in the ways we can help people improve their confidence and their lives.
