One of the fastest growing industries in the market right now is medical aesthetics, which includes performing cosmetic laser and injectable treatments on a wide variety of clients. In fact, Americans spent over 12 billion dollars on treatments last year, and 83% of those procedures were non-surgical treatments, ranging from laser hair removal, BOTOX®, dermal fillers, and different types of skin resurfacing treatments.
To break it down, 1,475,296 people received laser hair removal, 576,509 received laser skin resurfacing treatments, 3,181,592 got BOTOX®, and 1,593,554 received dermal fillers. Basically, this means that even in an economic slump with ridiculously high gas prices, people are still willing to spend their hard-earned money on laser cosmetic treatments.
People have tons of career opportunities to choose from within the medical aesthetics field!
