Each year, the field of aesthetics grows and further adapts to the demands and desires of patients. Economic circumstances and social trends are key influences.
Today, fewer patients are willing to undergo surgery and instead seek less invasive treatmentswith minimal downtime. Treatments for the body are in high demand. In order to remain relevant, your medical practice can easily change and grow with these patient demands and expectations.
The demand for less invasive and noninvasive cosmetic procedures continues to increase. Economic strain is one reason patients are postponing or sidestepping more invasive and costly procedures in favor of injectable and laser treatments. In a new twist, many patients now prefer less invasive treatments that provide relatively long-lasting results over treatments that offer more immediate but more short-lived results. Patients want less risk, less downtime and less financial burden.
One less invasive procedure that continues to gain popularity is dermal filler injection. Fillers are a minimally invasive treatment modality to immediately reduce wrinkles with little or no down time. For medical practices that want to take advantage of this shifting patient sentiment, dermal fillers coursework for PA’s and NP’s is a must. Additionally, both plastic surgery and dermatology offices are offering these services.
