A survey conducted by the ASDA found that consumers are most satisfied with wrinkle-relaxers, soft-tissue fillers and body sculpting treatments.
All three treatment categories received satisfaction ratings of 90 percent or above for the second straight year. And the ranks of those who declared themselves “extremely satisfied” increased significantly in all three groups.
Wrinkle-relaxers – Botox, Dysport and Xeomin – to soften facial lines and crow’s feet are at the top of consumers’ satisfaction list. Next are soft-tissue fillers – Belotero, Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane and Sculptra – which smooth wrinkles and folds and add facial volume.
Satisfaction also is high with body sculpting. Options include tumescent liposuction, performed in an office setting under local anesthesia; cryolipolysis, also known as “fat-freezing;” laserlipolysis to remove localized, stubborn pockets of fat; and other non-invasive treatments – using focused ultrasound and/or radiofrequency – for fat and cellulite.ASDS President Mitchel P. Goldman said body sculpting is popular “because it works so well.” The average liposuction patient in his multi-dermatologic surgeon practice has 2.3 procedures within two to three years. “Once they see how easy itis – downtime is a few days, typically – and that the results are so good, they want it done on a different part of their body,” he said.The procedures with the highest satisfaction ratings reflect the top reasons consumers say they turn to cosmetic procedures: to look “as young as I feel or better for my age,” to appear more attractive and to feel more confident.
