Men are not immune to signs of aging. Like their female counterparts, they are susceptible to pockets of stubborn fat, lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and volume loss.
Accordingly, an increasing number of guys are turning to non-invasive aesthetic procedures to address such issues and revitalize their faces and bodies.
So, which treatments are on the rise among men? Here are three popular cosmetic treatments for men:
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat removal technique that delivers a cooling effect to freeze and destroy localized pockets of fat. It’s FDA-approved to target common trouble spots for men including the upper abdomen, lower abdomen, flanks, and chin.
When the CoolAdvantage system is used, treatment time is just 35 minutes. DualSculpting, which involves two devices treating multiple areas simultaneously, can further expedite the CoolSculpting process.
In the weeks and months following non-surgical fat removal, men will note slimming of their midsection and an improved fit of their clothes. Results typically peak at 3 months, and CoolSculpting can achieve up to a 25% reduction in subcutaneous fat.
2. Botox Injections
Botox is among the most-requested cosmetic treatments for men. These neurotoxin injections are applied beneath the skin to temporarily paralyze overactive facial muscles. In doing so, Botox relaxes forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and other dynamic wrinkles and reveals smoother skin.
It typically takes three-to-seven days for Botox to take effect, and results last 3-4 months.
3. Dermal Fillers
Decreased collagen, elastin, and fat loss can cause skin laxity, wrinkles, and hollowness. All of these signs of aging make men look older, tired, and less vibrant.
Fortunately, dermal fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Sculptra can restore lost volume, fill folds and lines, and lift sagging skin in approximately 15 minutes.
Among the cosmetic treatments for men, dermal fillers provide the fastest improvement and results can be noted right away.
Depending on the injectable product used, filler benefits can last 6-24 months.
