Medical cosmetic procedures have never been more popular. Dermal fillers, Botox, body contouring and a long list of other treatments are helping men and women restore their youthful, energetic luster.
There are many reasons why more people are turning to noninvasive medical cosmetic procedures: The results look natural, they are inexpensive compared to surgeries, and they come with a short recovery time. But which procedures are the most popular in 2016, and would they work for you?

Until then, read on to learn the top seven medical cosmetic trends in 2016:
- Dysport and Botox
Botox and Dysport are highly effective for reducing the appearance of wrinkles. According to a 2014 report on Health.com, Botox injections had increased 700 percent since the year 2000.
- Dermal Fillers
Voluma, Restylane, Juvederm and other dermal fillers continue to grow in popularity. At least 2.3 million people underwent these procedures in 2014.
Body contouring is among the most rapidly advancing medical aesthetic trends. CoolSculpting, in particular, is popular among both men and women.
A single CoolSculpting session can reduce fat in a target area by 20 percent to 25 percent. It is a noninvasive procedure that requires no incisions or sutures. CoolSculpting has been nicknamed the “lunch break procedure” because most sessions take about one hour, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately.
- More Males
More men are using cosmetic treatments to slow the aging process and keep them looking younger, fitter and more attractive. In fact, men account for at least 10 percent of all med spa clients.
- Fewer Needles
Nobody enjoys injections, so cosmetic companies are researching ways to provide the benefits of injectable treatments without the needles. For example, topical products that contain hyaluronic acid have produced exceptional results for people who want to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
- Younger Patients
Although cosmetic treatments are often associated with older patients, many young people are turning to these procedures to slow the aging process. This preventative approach is helping men and women extend their youth.
- Facial Rejuvenation Apps
How would you look after a Botox or Juvederm treatment? Many patients shy away from cosmetic procedures because they are afraid the outcome won’t be attractive.
However, cosmetic apps are emerging that show patients how they would look after specific treatments. These apps can help you identify the right procedures for your cosmetic goals.
