Statistics show that more often the general population is selecting a non invasive to moderately invasive cosmetic procedures verses surgery.

In fact, as reported for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) in 2008, the latest year for which reliable cosmetic dermatology statistics are available, here in the U.S. more than 10 million non-surgical and surgical cosmetic dermatology and aesthetic procedures are performed each year.

Surgical procedures represent about 20% of all procedures, and non-surgical are about 80%. The most popular procedures continue to be:

  • Botox
  • Body contouring and cellulite removal
  • VaserShape
  • Zimmer Z-wave
  • Vampire Aesthetics
  • Juvaderm, Restylane and other dermal fillers
  • Laser Hair Removal
  • Laser Resurfacing
  • Rejuvenation
  • Skin Analysis
  • Skin Tightening

Men and women both benefit

Another trend highlighted by cosmetic dermatology statistics is that although women have about 90% of cosmetic procedures, the cosmetic statistics show that men form an important and growing number of people who benefit from cosmetic procedures.

Men are increasingly seeing the professional and personal benefits of having healthier, younger-looking skin. That’s why they’re adopting the same anti-aging measures being used so effectively by women.

Regarding the ages of those who are benefiting from cosmetic procedures, the cosmetic statistics show, for example, that about half of all Botox recipients are between the ages of 35 to 50, and about a quarter are between 51 to 64, and a small percentage are 65 or more.
