ASDS Reports High Patient Satisfaction with Soft Tissue Filler Procedures

July 29, 2013

Dermal filler treatments are among the highest rated in consumer satisfaction, according to survey data released by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. The ASDS Consumer Survey on Cosmetic Dermatologic Procedures asked more than 6,300 consumers for their opinions on cosmetic treatments in general and ratings for 10 specific procedures, including body sculpting and laser hair removal. Fillers came in at the top of the 10 categories, with a 92 percent overall satisfaction rate. Of the patients reporting overall satisfaction, 45 percent reported being “extremely satisfied” with treatment. While survey respondents listed excess weight as their greatest cosmetic concern, more than half also are bothered by conditions treatable with soft-tissue fillers – mid-face folds and wrinkles, skin texture, sagging facial skin and lines and wrinkles around the eyes. More than half of survey respondents (53 percent) said they are considering soft-tissue fillers in the future. When asked why they have not yet had a treatment, respondents listed cost (78 percent), concerns over not getting the desired results (32 percent) and uncertainty about which practitioner to see (23 percent) as the most common reasons.
