The vast majority of customers who visit a surgeon looking for facial rejuvenation are female patients. However, the number of men seeking these cosmetic procedures is growing at a rapid and consistent rate.
Men make up just about ten percent of the patients who want facial rejuvenation procedures across the nation.
Two decades ago, it was a very rare sight to see a man visiting a surgeon. Today, no one thinks twice when a man is interested in rejuvenating his face.
One of the driving forces behind this is the ever growing importance of appearance in the world of business. Now, men do not only need to be smart, aggressive, and educated to succeed in business, but they also have to be attractive.
Men are not as diligent as women when it comes to doing things to protect their face, like wearing sunscreen when they’re out in the sun.
And yet, in their work, in recreation, and in everyday affairs, men spend more time exposed to the sun than women. As a result, many men start to show the signs of aging sooner than their female counterparts.
Surgeons do not to treat their male patients in the same way that they do their female patients. This is because the facial structure of men is drastically different than that of women.
Men have faces that are more rectangular. They have stronger jaw lines and prominent brow bones. Women have a face that is softer and oval and eyebrows that are naturally arched. These differences must be taken into consideration by a surgeon who wants to help the patient achieve the most natural result possible.
In addition to surgery, there are many men who regularly get facials and use skincare products to rejuvenate their skin. Men are quickly learning that good skincare is not necessarily expensive or excessively complicated.
Laser hair removal has been used by more men who want to get rid of excessive hair on their face.
While the procedure can be used anywhere on the body, men are using it more often on their ears and on their backs. This procedure uses a laser to reduce unwanted hair in a way that is quick yet effective.
As of 2012, the number of men using BOTOX® increased by seven percent. Unlike women who use it to get an arched brow, most men use BOTOX® to remove head wrinkles.
As appearance begins to play a greater role in business and other aspects of life, one should not be surprised to see more men embracing facial rejuvenation to give them a younger, healthier, and more vibrant appearance.
