For a long time, the cosmetics industry has been presumed to be female-orientated, with women topping the charts for the type of people opting for both surgical and non-surgery aesthetics treatments. However, in recent years, clinicians and aesthetic practitioners have noticed a steady increase in the number of men choosing to undergo cosmetic treatments.
With more men going under the knife (or needle) and opting for treatments to enhance their appearance, we can’t help but wonder why this is. So today, we’re looking into the reasons we think male cosmetic surgery is on the rise and what type of treatments these men are looking for.
Once upon a time, dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections were viewed as youth-enhancing solutions for image-conscious women, but there’s a new reason for people, mostly men, to opt for these kinds of treatments.
Our dermal filler treatments in Jersey, Guernsey, and Belfast are designed to produce natural-looking results, which is what men are looking for. It has been proved repeatedly that, on average, men prefer to tweak their look rather than appear entirely tucked, which is exactly what dermal fillers offer, giving men what is known as a power profile. This youthful yet masculine appearance defines features, eliminates wrinkles, and provides an overall glow.
In addition, men have sought out the power profile to assist them in the workplace. Studies have shown that men with more youthful yet strong appearances are more respected at work. Whether this is entirely true, we don’t know, but whatever the reason men seek cosmetic procedures, we’re happy to treat them if they feel it would help improve their confidence and make them feel better about themselves.
Top Cosmetic Treatments for Men
There are plenty of surgical treatments and non-surgical procedures available for all genders here at Aesthetic Skin Clinic, but which appear at the top of the list for men? Men visiting our cosmetic clinics have undergone many treatments, but some have proven much more popular than others, such as those listed below.
Our anti-wrinkle injections in Belfast, Guernsey, and Jersey are an incredibly safe way to correct facial lines and wrinkles. Our highly experienced cosmetic doctors inject into problem areas, blocking nerve impulses from reaching the area, causing the muscles to relax, and allowing the skin to remain smooth and wrinkle-free. Common areas that can be treated include frown lines, crow’s feet, and the top lip and neck.
Hair loss is common for men, with 70% of the male population experiencing some kind of hair loss in their lifetime. It can play a vital role in the outward appearance and perception of youth and can drastically impact a person’s self-esteem if they feel that their hair loss is making them appear older.
A hair restoration procedure from ASC involves no scalpel or post-procedure scarring. Instead, we use the most advanced techniques to give an entirely natural look with no tell-tale signs of surgery and hair that continues to grow for life.
Breast Reduction Surgery
Although breast reduction surgery is typically linked to women, we have seen many men opting for this procedure to remove stubborn fat on their chests which gives them the unwanted appearance of breasts.
The surgical procedure removes breast tissue and stubborn fat from the chest before repositioning the nipple and skin tailoring to ensure the patient gets clean scarring and benefits from a speedy recovery with optimal results. Once the recovery period is over, the patient will have little to no visible fat on their chest (based on their individual case and goals discussed with the surgeon).
Dermal fillers are used to smooth facial wrinkles and enhance facial features, giving the face natural-looking plumpness and volume. Here at Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we use the most natural-looking fillers available, hyaluronic acid, which is already present in the body and is responsible for water retention in the skin.
The fillers add volume to the face and draw-in moisture to the skin, giving you a rejuvenated and hydrated look. In addition, they can be used to treat several problem areas like smoker’s lines, nasolabial folds, the chin, and cheeks. Our expertise in injectable treatments is vast, so we can offer you the best dermal filler treatments performed by our highly trained professionals.
At Aesthetic Skin Clinic, our expert practitioners are always on hand to answer any questions you might have about surgical and non-surgical treatments. We understand that someone may feel anxious or apprehensive about their cosmetic procedures, especially men who have not visited us before.
