There was a time when cosmetic rejuvenation was seen as purely a women’s game. Whether that was due to gender preferences or certain societal pressures, it’s safe to say that era is long gone. Based on recent statistics collected by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), cosmetic procedures of all kinds are more popular than ever with men. As more and more men become interested in aesthetic improvements, it’s certainly not surprising to see that more of them are seeking out a variety of non-surgical cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate their looks and help push back the visible signs of aging.
There are a number of potential reasons that men might prefer non-surgical cosmetics to plastic surgery. Professionals with busy schedules may be drawn to the relatively quick treatments that do not require significant downtime for recovery. Additionally, some men may prefer the more subtle, natural results that can be achieved through non-surgical injectables when compared to certain surgical procedures. Whatever the reason, men around the country seem to have a newfound fondness for non-surgical cosmetics. With this in mind, we’ve decided to highlight 3 of the most popular cosmetic treatments for men.
The most popular cosmetic treatments for men are cosmetic injectables, specifically Botox® Cosmetic Injections. Men in the business world often turn to injectables to help reduce aging signs like wrinkles and facial lines as a way to stay vital in increasingly more competitive talent pools. Last year alone, men in the US underwent over 450,000 Botox® treatments. Additionally, facial fillers were also very in-demand, accounting for nearly 200,000 treatments themselves.
Laser Hair Removal
More surprisingly, laser hair removal has also become exceedingly popular with men. Men accounted for over 125,000 laser hair removal treatments in the US in 2016. The most-commonly treated areas for hair removal in men include the chest, back, and face, for guys who had apparently grown weary of having to shave every day.
Non-Surgical Fat Reductions
Lastly, non-surgical fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting® are increasingly more in-demand. Unlike liposuction surgery, CoolSculpting® is able to treat areas of stubborn fat that gather in areas like the abdomen and flanks (AKA the “love handles”), or even under the neck, without any incisions or recovery time.
