2 of the most popular procedures for men in 2015
- Posted on: Apr 22 2016
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery's annual report, the number of men electing to undergo cosmetic procedures has had impressive growth over the last two decades. In fact, the total number of cosmetic procedures performed on men has increased by over 325 percent since 1997.
The report also delved into the most popular procedures for men in 2015, which were both surgical and nonsurgical. Here, we discuss two of these procedures based on what we offer at Skin & Cosmetic Solutions:
Men comprised around 10 percent of each injectable procedure in 2015. Botox topped the list for men, with over 400,000 procedures performed. After a few injections of Botox, patients will start to see the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, which can last up to four months. Juvederm was also included on the list, with over 100,000 procedures performed on men. We offer two kinds: the XC Injectable Gel and Voluma XC. The first lifts the skin around the nose and mouth, while the other is the only FDA-approved filler for volume in the cheek area.
According to the data from ASAPS, over 100,000 men underwent laser hair removal in 2015. At Skin & Cosmetic Solutions, we treat our hair removal patients with the GentleMax pro laser. By emitting a beam of light through the skin, which then transforms into heat, our procedure targets and destroys the hair follicle. For full effectiveness, patients typically undergo 6-8 treatments.
