Father's Day is quickly coming up, and what better way to treat your dad (or yourself) than with some confidence-boosting, turn-back-time skincare? Cosmetic procedures have become incredibly popular among men over the past few years, as dads in the workforce or dating pool face increasingly tough competition among younger folk. Skincare technology and technique has become so advanced that estheticians are able to create very subtle and natural results that retain masculinity while dropping years off the face.
Here are some of the most popular skincare treatments among men of all ages.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the number one cosmetic procedure among men. It is a wrinkle relaxer that smooths out dynamic wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines, and crow's feet. A skilled esthetician is able to create a natural look, and you'll never look "frozen." You'll also still be able to make all of your regular expressions. Botox takes about 10 minutes to perform, and up to a week for full results to appear.
Microdermabrasion is a great way to help smooth out fine lines and reduce age spots. Men tend to be lax about wearing sunscreen every day, and the result is prematurely aged skin that makes them look older and more tired than they really are. Microdermabrasion can help to subtly reduce the signs of age for a more robust and healthy complexion.
Fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane are amazingly versatile and can help with a number of issues that men might face, such as a weak chin or jawline or a misshapen nose. Dermal fillers can help to create a stronger chin and a more masculine jaw line without the need for surgery. They can also, in certain cases, help to reshape the nose for a non-surgical nose job. For older men, dermal fillers can also restore lost volume to the face, eliminating that "sunken" and unhealthy look.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure most often associated with women, but many men take advantage of it as well. Among men, the most popular areas for laser hair removal are the back, chest, and neck. The back is especially popular because it's a very difficult area to shave, and most men would prefer a smooth back to a hairy one.
