When you look good, sometimes that helps you feel good, too.
Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures are growing in popularity, and a new study finds that many patients are motivated by more than just looks.
Researchers with Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine surveyed about 500 adult patients in the U.S. who had recently undergone a non-invasive cosmetic procedure. The survey found that nearly 7 in 10 patients chose the procedure to improve their mental well-being. Other motivating factors included protecting their health and looking more professional at work.
Survey respondents had undergone a variety of procedures, including:
- laser treatments for the skin
- wrinkle reduction
- chemical peels
- non-surgical skin tightening
- fat reduction with cold treatment
Many patients in the survey said the results of these minimally invasive procedures helped boost their self-confidence and increase their overall quality of life.
