Today’s society is fast paced, forward thinking and always searching for the quickest solution available. In a world where the average individual has a small attention span of 8 seconds, patience is nowhere near as common as it used to be. This  quick fix approach applies to cosmetic surgery as well. Speedy treatments like Botox injections have grown in demand, so much in-fact, they have been deemed as the most popular cosmetic procedure for several years now.

But it’s not just the instant  recovery and results that people look for these days when considering injectable cosmetic procedures; for one, injections are much less intimidating than knives.

For this reason, among others like their affordable pricing, less invasive surgeries are more attractive and popular than the traditional in depth procedures. The only downside to injectables are their temporary lifetimes, which is why they need to be consistently maintained. Still, this doesn’t seem to be affecting or stopping their demand anytime soon; 9.5 million injectable treatments were undertaken overall this year alone!


Injections are a wealthy, growing trend in America with endless possibilities and options for client personalization.

Recently, a new type of fat bursting injection was introduced, that will revolutionize weight loss procedures. Although there are many wrinkle or smoothing fillers in this arena, there is very little available for weight loss fixes, in other words, this injection could be the first of it’s kind!

Known as “ATX-101” the solution consists of deoxycholic acid, which is a secondary bile that naturally occurs within the body, helping to break down the dietary fat (Gobio). Select areas on the body where weight loss is nearly impossible (like double chins) can be targeted with this procedure for individual fat reduction. Positive results have been concluded from the 1,600 participants in their clinical trials and its availability could be as soon as May.

There’s no such thing as being too “niche” of a client when it comes to these type of procedures, since everyone has different needs or preferences. There’s been instances of clients getting filler injections in parts of the face that expose their tells because of their career in gambling, or other unique procedures like mustache implants or chin fat removal.

2015 is an exciting year for cosmetic surgery, many procedures are on the horizon like technology involving the use of stem cells, which will greatly transform the industry. This will also help more treatments ( knife free) become readily available to clients with consistent improved results.
