The cosmetic treatment and procedure industry is one that seems to grow exponentially each and every year. As more and more treatments and procedures become available and are made more accessible, it makes sense to see the numbers continue to rise. And while people naturally assume that it is women who are leading this trend, the fact is that men are very much part of the industry and are signing up for their own procedures and treatments.
For men who are considering having a little something done in 2020, here’s a look at five popular treatments and procedures, ranging from simple procedures to more invasive surgery options.
Laser Hair Removal
When it comes to grooming, men can spend a whole lot of time shaving and removing unwanted hair from various areas of their bodies. While it’s not painful, it can certainly be time-consuming and just not an enjoyable activity. This is why laser hair removal is so popular with men, as it can effectively remove unwanted hair from just about any place on your body.
The procedure itself will range in time depending on how many areas are being worked on. In general, each area will need to be treated four to eight times in order to permanently stop the hair from growing back.
Wishing you could do something about those fine lines and wrinkles that are just starting to show up on your face but not prepared to choose surgery as a solution? If that’s the case, Botox can deliver the results you’re after.
Cosmetic Botox injections take about a half-hour to complete and work to paralyze a muscle in a particular spot for a temporary amount of time (usually around six months). Once that muscle is paralyzed the skin will appear smoother, which then reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The most popular spot for a Botox injection in men tends to be the forehead.
For those who want a more radiant-looking complexion microdermabrasion can be a great option. The procedure is able to remove the very top layer of your skin cells and then reveal healthy fresh skin beneath. It’s a great way to treat textured skin and those who are looking “dull”.
A hair transplant is another popular cosmetic procedure among men. Men can be left feeling very insecure about hair loss, and this provides them with a way to not only bring back that hair but improve their self-esteem. There are different techniques available when it comes to hair transplants, so it’s important to explore your options and discuss your expectations.
Male Breast Reduction
Finally, we have male breast reduction surgery. This one isn’t always talked about but can prove to be life-altering for men. This particular surgery is on the rise as of late, bringing it into the spotlight. Typically the surgery will remove the accumulation of fat in the male breasts through a variety of different methods.
Plenty of Options Available to Men
While these five cosmetic procedures and treatments may be among the most popular with men right now, there are many others that are also proving to be highly appealing.
