RealSelf reveals highest-rated cosmetic procedures for 2020, according to RealSelf Worth It Ratings shared by patients

SEATTLE, Jan. 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- RealSelf, the go-to destination for making cosmetic treatment decisions and connecting with doctors, today announced the 2020 Most Worth It Ranking—a comprehensive list of the top-rated cosmetic procedures. The ranking reveals the Most Worth It™ procedures1 of the year and is determined by Worth It Ratings from real patients on RealSelf.

The RealSelf Worth It Rating is a proprietary consumer satisfaction score based on reviews from consumers on RealSelf who, after undergoing a treatment, rated it as “Worth It” or “Not Worth It.” A total of 15 nonsurgical and 37 surgical procedures earned the Most Worth It designation for 2020.

“With more than 600 aesthetic procedures featured on RealSelf, consumers look to our annual list of Most Worth It procedures to easily discover and compare top-rated options,” said Tom Seery, RealSelf founder and CEO. “There’s nothing complicated or opaque about our algorithm—our ranking is based solely on

Worth It Ratings shared by real patients, and that’s why consumers trust it.”

Nonsurgical Crowd Pleasers: Facials, Injectables
Facial treatments are highly rated by consumers, with both tried-and-true classic facials (99% Worth It Rating) and HydraFacial—which uses a patented device to cleanse, exfoliate and extract pores—earning top spots on the nonsurgical treatment list.

Injectable fillers and toxins also earn high marks for satisfaction. Wrinkle-smoothing injectable toxins Dysport (97% Worth It Rating) and Botox (97% Worth It Rating) both made the list, as did four different injectable fillers: Restylane (97% Worth It Rating), Restylane Lyft (95% Worth It Rating), Juvéderm (93% Worth It Rating) and Voluma (92% Worth It Rating). Lip augmentation (96% Worth It Rating) and nonsurgical nose job (95% Worth It Rating), both of which involve injectable filler, also ranked. In total, injectable toxins, injectable fillers, and filler-related treatments make up more than half of the nonsurgical treatment list.

1Worth It Ratings shown as rounded percentages; official ranking determined by several decimal places.

According to a recent RealSelf survey conducted online by The Harris Poll2, more than one-third (36%) of U.S. adults are considering undergoing one or more cosmetic treatments in the next 12 months, and only 26% have had one in the past.

“Getting a plastic surgery procedure is a highly personal decision, and many factors—including an individual’s unique anatomy, concerns, and goals—come into play,” said RealSelf Chief Medical Editor Dr. Lara Devgan. “That said, understanding how satisfied others are with a particular brand or procedure is a valuable insight for both doctors and patients.”

A total of 15 nonsurgical and 37 surgical procedures earned a Most Worth It designation for 2020.
