Many people have long believed aesthetic treatments to be the exclusive domain of women. But men are catching on to the benefits of looking younger, and we’re likely to see this trend increasing in the future.
Stress leads to lines and wrinkles, and we all lead increasingly stressful lives. For the middle-aged executive, there may be a fine line between appearing “distinguished and mature” and simply “old and tired”. Since competition in the workplace often tends to favor fresh young college graduates, many men feel adopting a younger look themselves can help in the business world.
The high divorce rate may have something to do with the trend as well. Many men are re-entering the dating scene after many years spent in monogamous marriages, and it’s only natural that they would want to look and feel their best. With the popularity of online dating and their emphasis on profile pictures soaring, everyone – both men and women – wants to put their best face forward.
For men who want to try aesthetic treatments to improve their appearance, the following procedures appear to be the most popular:
- Botox – injections are used to relax and soften facial muscles which create crow’s feet and forehead lines.
- Injections for excess sweating – Botox can also be used in the armpits, to prevent excess sweating.
- Fillers – injections like Juvederm fill in fine lines, particularly those around the mouth.
- Laser treatments – these can address problems such as redness, veins, acne scars, and even stretch marks.
