Are you looking for a way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, frown lines, or sagging skin? You’re not alone. Each year, millions of people opt for minimally invasive or nonsurgical procedures to alter the appearance of their skin.
In 2019 alone, Botox topped the list of cosmetic minimally invasive procedures, with 7.7 million injections — the highest number to date. This was followed by soft tissue filler with 2.7 million and chemical peels with 1.3 million procedures.
