Report: Baby boomers to drive increase in facial filler market
May 4, 2011
A new report from the market analysis group Kalorama Information reveals interesting statistics on the projected future of the plastic surgery market. The study, titled Facial Rejuvenation Markets, estimates that baby boomers will be the driving force behind the popular facial rejuvenation market, which is expected to increase 13.7 percent each year from now until 2015. The report analyzes both topical cosmetic procedures, such as microdermabrasion, and injectable facial fillers.
"Technological advancements have made non-invasive treatment alternatives increasingly safe, affordable and easy to use," said publisher of Kalorama Information Bruce Carlson. "As a result, patients are seeking treatment for wrinkles and other blemishes in larger numbers than ever before, a trend that is being magnified by the baby boomer phenomenon."
More than the generations before them, baby boomers seem to want to remain youthful in appearance as they age. Coupled with their financial status, it's likely that the demographic will continue to seek easy and effective anti-aging treatments, such as Botox or Dysport injections.
The report also discusses the fact that the face of plastic surgery in the U.S. is undergoing change. In the past, many procedures were focused on correcting specific blemishes, but it now appears that modern patients are seeking overall improvements such as body contouring or skincare procedures.
