Many people know that a great deal of money is spent in the United States on plastic surgery. However, figures show that Americans are also spending vast amounts on non-surgical treatments such as Juvederm and Botox. Injections, peels, waxing, and wraps are not just for celebrities anymore. Instead, more men and women are seeking these types of procedures to look their best. In fact, it is reported that in 2010, people in the U.S. spent a staggering $10.7 billion on cosmetic procedures. Of that $10.7 billion, $4.1 billion was spent on non-surgical treatments, laser treatments, and skin rejuvenations.
While some people opt to go under the knife, many more are pursuing non-surgical options to enhance their looks and reverse signs of aging. Experts in the plastic surgery industry say this trend is expected to continue, especially among a select demographic – women in their 40s – who want inexpensive and non-invasive options.
