As I’ve previously stated in my BOTOX® for men blog post, the market for nonsurgical cosmetic treatments for men is absolutely booming right now. The number of cosmetic operations performed annually on men has increased 325% since 1997. Though that figure includes surgical procedures, the market for nonsurgical cosmetic treatments for men alone exceeded $5 billion in the US last year. Regardless of past notions or attitudes, these kinds of cosmetic procedures have just become part of the routine for anyone striving to show their best self to the world.
Sculpsure™ fat reduction and similar treatments for men accounted for $232 million in procedures last year alone. Sculpsure™ is FDA-approved and perfect for guys looking to get rid of stubborn fat quickly and effectively. Due to their non-invasive nature, Sculpsure™ treatments are quick, cause only minimal pain and require no downtime for recovery. During treatment, a laser heats the fat cells causing them to detach from body tissue. Results may be seen as soon as 6 weeks following treatment.
Other FDA-Approved Facial Fillers
Facial fillers for men accounted for an astonishing $2.7 billion in the US in 2015. While BOTOX® and similar injections accounted for roughly half of that, there are a plethora of other available products and treatments for men to choose from including:
Restylane® – A treatment designed to reduce deep facial wrinkles and remove facial lines. Perfect for any guy trying restore volume, smooth away the appearance of facial lines and rejuvenate skin. Composed of specially synthesized hyaluronic acid, a compound naturally occurring in the body, Restylane® is both safe natural.
Juvederm® – A facial filler produced from hyaluronic acid, similar to Restylane®. Perfect for treating deeper wrinkles on the face or areas that have lost volume due to age. Results typically last up to 6 months.
Dysport® – Developed as an alternative to BOTOX®. Dysport® works by injecting a highly purified protein into the face, which relaxes the facial muscles and leaves you with smoother, replenished skin. While Dysport® is used primarily for the treatment of wrinkles caused by expression lines, ask your healthcare provider if it can be used for treatment of migraines, eye and neck muscle spasms and excessive armpit sweating.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal is perfect for any guy who wants to achieve a smooth, hairless body without the pains of constantly shaving or waxing. Last year men in the US spent roughly $289 million on such treatments, a figure that is steadily increasing annually. Laser hair removal uses laser light energy to penetrate the hair shaft, actually killing the hair follicle beneath the skin. Perfect for men interested in removing or reducing hair on back, chest, stomach, shoulders and genital area.
