Top Dermatologists See Increase in Young Patients Seeking to Preserve, Protect Skin

Right now, there’s a shift going on in product usage for the younger generation. According to new statistics from the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), patients aged 30 years and younger upped their usage of wrinkle-relaxing procedures and soft-tissue filler treatments by at least 50%. Their motivation? Prevention.

Top Dermatologists See Increase in Young Patients Seeking to Preserve, Protect SkinBetween 2012 and 2013, wrinkle relaxers and soft-tissue fillers remained the most popular cosmetic procedures performed by ASDS members. However, the number of people undergoing these preventative anti-aging treatments saw significant changes.

According to the 2013 ASDS Survey on Dermatologic Procedures, there were 90,000 wrinkle-relaxer procedures (think Botox®) performed by ASDS members in 2013, an increase of 50% from 2012 for the same age group. Additionally, there were almost 30,000 facial filler treatments (like Juvéderm® and Restlyane®) for the group last year, a 63% increase from 2012.

The providers of Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA) educate patients on habits that prevent wrinkles and sun damage while preserving young-looking skin.

We also urge the usage of broad spectrum, SPF 30 or higher sunscreen without exception.

For us, it’s not a popularity contest—it’s creating a patient base of trust and loyalty based on our reliable providers.
