You may have noticed there are more Botox clinics in London and across the UK than ever before.
It’s no coincidence, Botox and other non-invasive cosmetic treatments have been rising in popularity for a number of years.
Whether you’re considering a treatment or are just interested in the aesthetics treatments market, here are some of the reasons why this industry is booming:
Non-invasive treatments are safer than invasive cosmetic procedures
Non-invasive procedures, such as Botox, fillers, and chemical peels offered by most cosmetics clinics have been on the rise for years.
There are a number of reasons for this. Most of which revolve around non-invasive procedures being exactly that, they are non-invasive.
This means there is less discomfort, pain, and risk involved than with an invasive cosmetic procedure. They aren’t always able to achieve the same results, but the trade-off against an incisive procedure is worth it for most patients.
Going under the knife for a cosmetic procedure has a much harder toll on the body and has a longer recovery time. When similar results can be achieved without a surgical procedure, more people are willing to try it.
Combined with the other reasons listed in this post, it’s no surprise these types of treatments are more popular than they’ve ever been.
Facial aesthetics is popular with celebrities
Celebrities have a huge impact on the facial aesthetics, cosmetic, and beauty markets. In some cases, celebrities and influencers are paid to promote particular brands. This has a direct impact on sales and the treatments they’re advertising.
In other cases, just seeing how someone in the limelight looks after a certain treatment is enough to encourage others to book the same treatment.
With Botox and other non-invasive treatments going hand-in-hand with celebrities wanting to look their best in front of the camera, it doesn’t look like this trend is going to change any time soon.
The results are visible within days
Generally speaking, people want fast results. Especially with treatments designed to reduce wrinkles and give them a more youthful look.
An invasive procedure typically involves a good deal of planning, hours on the operating table, and days to weeks of recovery time before the results can be seen.
Most non-invasive producers, on the other hand, can be carried out by cosmetic clinics in a matter of minutes. The effects of which, if you take Botox as an example, will be seen within days.
There is also the convenience of being able to enter a clinic and have most procedures administered with nothing more than a needle.
Treatments are non-permanent
Most treatments, such as Botox and lip fillers are non-permanent. This means repeat treatments are needed to maintain the look and feel they give a patient.
For example, Botox typically lasts 3-4 months, and lip fillers last anywhere between 6-12 months. This contributes to the continual increase in the number of people visiting Botox clinics in London and everywhere else across the UK.
It’s also a testament to how effective these types of cosmetic procedures are. With women seeing the desired results from a treatment, they are very likely to return and have a repeat treatment.
Going back for repeat treatments isn’t a big downside. It gives people the chance to adjust their treatment, and in the rare case that they were not happy with the outcome, it’s only a matter of time before the effects fade.
