This represents a decrease of 2% in comparison to last year (data from the same source). At Chrysalis Cosmetics we have witnessed an increase in facial rejuvenation with fillers, blepharoplasty, lasers and facelifts and compared to last year an increase in abdominoplasty or tummy tucks and liposuction interest. We are so happy to be a part of so many exciting transitions or jump starts to the spring and summer seasons. We are looking forward to a great year ahead.
