From body sculpting to regular manicures, people are willing to pay more for beauty treatments than ever before, as well as therapeutic and stress relieving services such as facials and massages.
Body sculpting is one way that people can control their appearance, and body sculpting is a type of body treatment that is growing more and more popular. Aside from body sculpting, people are becoming more interested in botox treatments to more permanently enhance their appearances. In fact, the rates of botox treatments increased by more than forty percent in the years since 2011, particularly among millennials. Botox treatments are so popular in part because they are so effective at what they do, with more than 80% of botox recipients noting a considerable improvement in their appearance. Part of this new focus on appearances comes from the increase in ways that people are viewed in society. With the spread and popularity of social media platforms. In fact, millennials will take more than 25,000 selfies in their lives, and millennials and gen-xers take more than 55% of the selfies than baby boomers do.
However, long lasting methods of physical improvement like body sculpting and botox are not the only methods to enhance or improve one’s appearance. Manicures and pedicures are another example of a popular way that people alter their appearances. Manicures are particularly common, and have existed for around 5,000 years, originally as a way to determine class status. They were originally made with ingredients like beeswax, gelatin, as well as egg whites. Ancient societies in China and Egypt commonly used nail polish, and nail polish is still incredibly popular today, used both for manicures and pedicures.
Many spa packages include all or some of these services, and because the spa industry provides such popular services, it is doing better than ever, bringing in more than 16 billion dollars in total revenue in 2016 alone. Many spas offer massages as well as beauty treatments, and massage treatments have a number of benefits to the recipient. One of the major benefits is that of pain relief, particularly back pain. Unfortunately, musculoskeletal pain is widespread in the United States, affecting up to 20% of all the people living there. Fortunately, more than 90% of patients who received a massage said that it effectively reduced or totally relieved their pain, at least temporarily.
Going to a spa has a lot of benefits, from body sculpting and botox treatments, which tend to be more long lasting or even somewhat permanent, to more temporary beautifying measures such as manicures and pedicures. Many day spas also offer services geared toward relaxation, like facials, and pain relief, like massages. Many people go to a spa to receive one or more of these treatments, as people are more concerned about their physical appearance than ever, and more people experience chronic pain on a daily basis as well. Spas have many benefits, and are a great way to relax for a day and do something for yourself.
