Skin rejuvenation isn’t just for women anymore. More and more men are just as concerned about the signs of aging as women and are turning to med spa treatments to turn back the clock. In fact, ASAPS statistics show the number of non-surgical procedures administered to men increased by 59.4 percent between 2010 and 2015, and the numbers continue to increase.
In addition, studies show men are outspending women by as much as 13 percent. But what med spa treatments are men turning to and which ones will help you find the results you are looking for?
If you are looking to address lines and wrinkles on the face, BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular non-surgical procedures and gaining in popularity among men, with some even referring to it as “Brotox.” This simple injectable procedure targets the muscles in your face that contribute to facial wrinkles over time. This can include frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet and forehead lines. BOTOX typically takes 30 minutes and can easily be performed during your lunch break with no downtime. Results typically take a few days to show, and last for about 3 to 4 months.
The loss of volume in the face, especially in the cheeks, is a common sign of aging in both men and women. Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment that adds volume to your cheeks, taking five to 10 years off your look and giving you a more youthful appearance. In addition, dermal fillers can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and lower face. Dermal filler treatments take about an hour, including time for numbing before the injections. You see results immediately and, depending on the filler and location, results can last up to 2 years.
Just like women, men are looking for an overall improved appearance to their face and neck. From sagging skin and sun damage to acne scars and fine lines and wrinkles, laser treatments, such as Clear + Brilliant, can help. This med spa treatment uses laser technology to address signs of aging and helps to renew your skin and prevent future signs of aging. Treatment takes an hour and, unlike other laser treatments, there is little downtime with Clear + Brilliant. You can expect redness and inflammation after treatment but should return to normal within a day. You can expect to see some immediate results with others developing over time and your skin renews.
Laser Hair Removal
While women have turned to laser hair removal for years to avoid shaving their legs, men are turning to hair removal to reduce the natural signs of aging. As men age, hair begins to grow on their ears, eyebrows get out of control and chest and back hair increases. Laser hair removal typically takes 2 to 6 treatments before seeing optimal results. It works best for men who have darker colored hair.
You don’t have to let the signs of aging bother you anymore. More and more men are choosing med spa treatments to minimize the signs of aging and keep their youthful appearance.
