Recession bolsters non-invasive treatments

Botox treatmentAs the recession still looms evidence suggests that whilst the number of those seeking plastic surgery has reduced over recent years the number of those seeking non-invasive cosmetic procedures such as Botox and fillers has actually increased in the same time period.

There may be a few reasons for this, not least of which is financial. Plastic surgery often requires a lump sum for a one off procedure whereas non-invasive treatments are usually spread out over a period of time with the cost of one treatment being far lower than that of cosmetic surgery.

This is not necessarily the only reason however. Women, and also men, may be using these treatments to avoid the tell-tale signs that more invasive surgery may incur. The current anti-aging trend is for a natural look, rather than for a face that looks as if it has been received a little ‘help’. Treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion and fillers all help to create a more youthful appearance without such drastic measures as going under the knife.

An increase in a younger generation accessing anti-aging treatments may also explain some of the uplift; where these men and women may consider themselves too young to opt for plastic surgery they nonetheless want to benefit from techniques that will keep their appearance looking youthful. The logic may be that they are maintaining their skin and therefore delaying when they will first consider having more serious cosmetic treatments.
