If you’ve taken a stroll through the health & beauty section of your local department store, you’ve definitely seen the signs that men’s skin care has become mainstream. Today, having body washes, shaving lotions and other skin care products tailored specifically for the male complexion is the norm. What you may not know is that more and more men are seeking professional skin care and cosmetic treatments.
Men Want to Look Younger
Gray hair may look distinguished but wrinkles and other signs of aging? Not so much. The truth is that 25% – that’s 1 in 4 – of male respondents to a recent survey by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery report that they’d like to look younger for career reasons.
A New Attitude of Openness
Once upon a time, the idea of a man taking care of his appearance wasn’t seen as particularly masculine. Today, there’s a new level of openness to the idea. More men are seeking cosmetic treatments than ever before – the number of cosmetic procedures for men more than tripled between 1997 and 2015.
Minimally Invasive Treatments are the Top Choice
Cosmetic procedures have evolved tremendously. Today there are many non-invasive or minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that deliver exceptional results with little to no recovery time. These treatments are ideal for men who want to improve their appearance but don’t want any interruptions to their schedules signaling the fact they’ve had some work done.
Men Deserve Highly Individualized, Tailored Cosmetic Procedures
At SkinCenter, all of our clients receive highly individualized, tailored treatments designed to meet their specific appearance concerns. Men’s faces are different than women’s faces, and that means that while the same procedures and treatments may be used, our team of physicians and Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialists will administer each in the way most appropriate to the individual.
For example, rhinoplasty – a nose job – is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Westchester county. Men often opt for a stronger, more refined masculine nose profile where women often opt for a more balanced, subtle profile. When it comes to injectable treatments like Botox, men tend to have larger muscle structures in their face; this can lead to a need for more treatments or different dosage than their female counterparts might need.
