Constant innovation and the arrival on the scene of a myriad of non-invasive technologies (such as fat freezing and new laser treatments) have led the global aesthetic medicine market to boom. When it comes to this industry, the state of the industry in Tampa is no exception. Miami may be known as the plastic surgery capital of the U.S., but if you click on the Florida Society of Plastic Surgeons’ website, you will find numerous Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons specializing in both surgical and non-surgical procedures. How are these clinics enticing patients, and what are the most in-demand treatments in the city?
Non-Surgical Laser Treatments
Laser is a popular way for patients to turn back the hands of time with relatively little downtime and no stitches involved at all. Currently trending are skin resurfacing treatments like Fractora and Fraxel, which are used to rejuvenate skin and eliminate acne scars, while boosting the skin’s luminosity. Relative newcomers to the scene that are making big waves include laser facial contouring (to reduce fat deposits beneath the eyes and chin), laser pore treatment (which reduces the size of pores and lends the complexion greater smoothness), and laser carbon peel treatment (an ultra-exfoliating approach that eliminates dead skin then heats the dermis to induce the production of collagen—the building block of skin). When it comes to Specialists in Laser Hair Removal Tampa and other cities in Florida are also doing a roaring trade, as innovative devices by brands like Lumenis® Lightsheer Diode Laser, Cutera™ XEO Yag Laser, and Cocoon Medical’s Primelase Laser target the hair follicle and its regrowth. Many of these treatments are used across the body, including the face, upper torso, and lower extremities.
Traditional Treatments Are Maintaining their Lead
When it comes to surgery in Tampa, trends are similar to what they are in the rest of Florida, with the most sought-after procedures including breast augmentations, liposuction, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, tummy tucks, and mommy makeovers. The latter can involve two or three procedures at once (for instance, a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and liposuction). Cutting-edge surgical tables (which ‘flip over’ so surgeons can reach hard-to-reach angles) are making combination procedures more achievable and ergonomic for surgeons.
Non-Invasive Procedures That Rule
Also dominating the sector are non-invasive procedures such as Botox injections, fillers, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and others. One popular treatment is fat freezing, which provides similar results to liposuction without needing surgery. Fat freezing is ideal for those who do not are not targeting large volumes, but who have stubborn fat in areas ranging from beneath the chin to the sides of the waist, buttocks, hips, thighs, and back. Patients can have various areas treated at once during a lunchtime procedure that is quick and painless and that requires no downtime.
The aesthetic medicine industry is booming, thanks in no small part to the rise in video conferencing technologies and the popularity of social media apps like Instagram. Tampa is an ideal place to relax while having a safe procedure with a Board-Certified surgeon. Just a few treatments holding sway include laser treatments, injectables, and non-invasive treatments like fat freezing.
