The Baby Boomers have been considered the wealthiest, healthiest and the generation who has been changing the world after the World War II devastation.
They are the special generation, the one which is very different from those before and after them. You may get bosses and rich acquaintances who were Baby Boomers. They talk different and walk different. And they are expected to have fueled many industry and financial growth.
Baby Boomers have always been banked on by many businesses fields but then cosmetic surgery and treatments have come to a surprise. It isn’t the Baby Boomer generation that may be investing, funding the cosmetic surgery field. It’s the —Generation X.
What About Generation X?
Born later than the boomers, 1969-1979, the Gen X seems to be the source of funding and growth of cosmetic surgery in terms of new technology and technique development. 43% of cosmetic procedures are mainly from the Gen X which has belittled the Boomers 28% based on the latest studies.
Gen X has driven the industry into search of much newer innovations. Though the money is hidden in the vaults of boomers, the Gen X are also likely to spend freely and further seek the fountain of youth and stay young at an old age.
What Booms with Gen X?
Aside from the invasive procedures, more Generation X has been into less invasive ones. Dermal fillers are already gaining momentum and seemed to be a better option for those who are busy, frowning upon hassling surgeries and are too free to spend their time in the operating table.
Some Issues with Back Street Injectibles
The boom in dermal fillers, the alternative to botox, has got attention of many lately. Though it is very effective and very useful if administered by doctors and trained professionals, it has also been a subject to abuse. Many unlicensed clinics are doing it off street and have been killing the industry. Such unprofessional and unregulated administration of dermal fillers and other less invasive procedure has created fuss, resulted to more laws passed and even casualties in the name of youth. But then there can be certain ways to prevent such demise. NEVER trust a street transaction.
How Gen X Will Pave in the Future
The generation X, two decades younger than the Baby Boomers can be the next funders of many industries. With their willingness to spend and gain from it, Baby Boomers will soon be replaced. But of course some other generation has been active as well.
With the open acceptance of cosmetic surgery, the world has been now opened to bigger opportunities and a much driven market. Cosmetic surgery and other alternative treatments such as less invasive ones will surely be continuing to innovate and be patronized by every generation.
Whether you are a true born Gen X, Gen Y or a baby Boomer, you have the option to stay young. And by that we can say that beauty and youth will always bypass any generation.
