Abstract

It is estimated that by the year 2010, the American population will consist of 40.2 million people over the age of 65. 1 This rise in the aging population has led to an increase in the number of cosmetic procedures per- formed each year. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) 2006 statistics report, nearly 11.5 million cosmetic procedures were In addition, there was a reported increase in noninvasive procedures with 19% surgical and 81% nonsurgical procedures, being As is evident from these recent statistics, cosmetic surgery has embarked on a new trend toward less invasive procedures.The aging popu- lation is looking for rejuvenation procedures that deliver achievable results, yet with reduced downtime and minimal risk profile. This movement in cosmetic medicine has been away from invasive and destructive processes and toward innovative technologies and techniques that spare tissue and promote growth.
