Top Trends Advancing Cosmetic Medicine
In recent years, technological advancements in non-surgical or minimally invasive techniques have started to change the face of plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine. While this is in no way replacing the need, desire, or popularity of plastic surgery, it is opening up the range of available cosmetic treatments.
The advancing trends in plastic surgery and the improved ability of non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments (i.e., CoolSculpting®, KYBELLA® injections, and anti-aging chemical peels) play a pivotal role in increasing what’s possible with cosmetic medicine.
Here are some examples of these cutting edge technologies and how patients can benefit from them.
Why Are Non-Surgical Procedures Becoming More Popular?
Non-surgical procedures are becoming more popular due to the demand for convenient fat reduction and skin tightening with little downtime and no resulting scars.
Non-surgical methods like CoolSculpting® use a controlled cooling system to eliminate stubborn fat deposits. This technology is effective, painless, and takes little time to complete. These conveniences wouldn’t be possible without the sheer progression of cryolipolysis science—a form of fat reduction through controlled cooling.
KYBELLA® is a revolutionary injectable that dissolves unwanted submental fat without needing liposuction of the neck.
Alternatively, Ultherapy® uses ultrasound technology to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles without facial surgery.These technologies can achieve some of the same results of plastic surgery procedures without the hassle of more invasive methods.
Note, non-surgical procedures cannot achieve the same quality of results as plastic surgery and are not alternatives for all patients. Schedule a consultation with PREMIERE Center for Cosmetic Surgery to see if you would be a candidate.
How Will Plastic Surgery Trends Continue to Change?
If the last few years have demonstrated anything, it is that aesthetic medicine has never been more popular. This demand has created an influx in cosmetic technologies, and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
While it is unlikely that non-surgical trends will ever truly replace time-tested plastic surgery options, these technologies are allowing a larger number of people to try out cosmetic enhancements.
Is Social Media Making Plastic Surgery More Popular?
As we find more ways to connect with the outside world through social platforms, our life becomes more exposed to family, friends, strangers, and potential business partners. Along with this exposure comes all the added weight and expectations of looking your best while running your online business, podcasts, cooking vlogs, or internet shows.
Cosmetic experts are finding that these social media influencers experts love non-surgical injections like JUVÉDERM®, RADIESSE®, and Restylane®. Additionally, chemical peels and PRP facelifts are also becoming more prevalent in popular culture, for their low-bar entry and highly promising results.
