New Survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Reveals Fillers, Laser-Related and Injectable Toxin Procedures Continue to Rise

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., June 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Despite concerns that the U.S. economy is heading toward a recession, procedures that make consumers feel good and confident about the way they look continue to be in demand according to a new survey released today by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS). The survey collected responses from 562 ASDS members.

Nearly 63 percent of member respondents are maintaining a consistent volume of bookings for existing patients seeking cosmetic-related procedures compared to six months ago, while 24 percent had indicated an increase. Additionally, nearly 32 percent of dermatologic surgeons indicated that the number of new patients making appointments had increased by up to 30 percent.

"These findings indicate that patients investing in the health and beauty of their skin are still a priority during unsteady economic times," said Darrell Rigel, M.D., president of the ASDS. "Looking good helps people feel confident," added Dr. Rigel. Additionally, with the current unemployment climate such as it is, Baby Boomers may be looking to put their best face forward on the interview circuit.

The survey also revealed that there have been steady uses and growth in specific cosmetic-related procedures such as fillers, laser-related and injectable toxin procedures (e.g., Botox(R), Reloxin(R)).

-- Twenty-eight percent said that their current use of fillers had

increased up to 30 percent, compared to six months ago, and nearly 38

percent said that they expect to see an increase by up to 30 percent six

months from now. Almost half (49 percent) of respondents said that

their current use of fillers had not changed and nearly 46 percent

expect the volume will hold steady.
