American Spa – A recent survey conducted by the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), which focused on the amount of surgical and nonsurgical treatments performed from 1997 to 2010, revealed that there are now nearly six times as many nonsurgical treatments performed when compared to cosmetic surgery procedures.

The study also revealed:
• Non-surgical treatments have increased by 228 percent, while cosmetic surgery procedures have increased by 71 percent.
• Botox injections are the most popular, accounting for 32 percent of all nonsurgical procedures and have increased by 3,641 percent since 1997.
• Hyaluronic dermal fillers, which were not even available in 1997, were the second most popular nonsurgical treatment in 2010.
