Inc. – a leading tech and entrepreneurial magazine – released its annual list of the 500 fastest-growing private companies, and we’re thrilled to report that RealSelf made the list! Over the past three years, RealSelf has experienced a staggering and thrilling 1,217% growth – and none of it would have been possible without the powerful connections that are made every day within our community.

RealSelf CEO Tom Seery shared his poignant reflection on what has fueled the success, and noted that it is about the support network members create within the forums, the data and doctor resources available, and being empowered to make confident decisions. The medi-beauty industry has reached $30 billion, ASPS reports cosmetic surgery procedures are up 5% from last year alone, and there’s no sign of slowing down.

As RealSelf continues to grow as a company, our dedication to being the voice and safety advocate of consumers will only strengthen. We will always report the facts to help consumers come to the best choice for them – whether that’s walking into a doctor’s office or walking away. Tom said it best when he wrote, “From this exchange and transparency, RealSelf users gain confidence that they aren’t taking blind chances with cosmetic changes to their face, body, or smile.” And that’s a promise.
