Men’s Aesthetic Treatments for a More Masculine Appearance
Since their first use back in 1980s, aesthetic treatments like Botox and facial fillers have primarily been most associated with women. But as aesthetic technology has evolved, more men than ever are undergoing aesthetic treatments to look younger, more attractive and even more “masculine”
Today’s generation of men’s aesthetic treatments can create sharper cheekbones, define a more “masculine” jawline and even regrow hair – all without surgery and with no downtime.
In this article the ant-aging experts at Tutera Medical in Scottsdale, AZ explain why more men are getting cosmetic treatments – discuss the top 3 aesthetic treatments for men!
The Stigma is Gone for Men’s Aesthetic Treatments
Thankfully, the judgement in society surrounding men’s cosmetic procedures is finally disappearing. Zoom meetings, social media, selfies and even dating site profiles have made men much more aware how they look! So, while the percentage of male patients getting cosmetic treatments varies from state to state, most plastic surgeons and aesthetic physicians in larger metropolitan areas like Los Angeles, New York and Detroit report that about 20% of their cosmetic treatment patients are now men.
According the American Society of Plastic Surgery, in 2020 alone 820,123 men underwent aesthetic treatments. 118,614 of those men received dermal fillers and 265,247 males received Botox injections.
This is no surprise, according to a recent article in The Smithsonian which reported that men who are perceived as “handsome” make on average 13 percent more during their careers than men in the same job who are considered less attractive. That article also went on to note that even quarterbacks who are considered “hot” earn 12 percent more than quarterbacks who are deemed to be “homely”.
What is a “Masculine” Appearance?
A face that is considered classically masculine will have more prominent and angular facial features, compared to softer, feminine looking faces. Heredity combined with testosterone primarily influences the way a man’s facial bone structure develops masculine-looking facial features.
Obvious features considered traditionally masculine include a prominent, “strong,” square chin and jaw. More pronounced definition at the “gonial angle” – of the jaw next to the earlobe – gives men a sharper, more angular, “manly” appearance than a woman’s soft “apple cheeks”.
Additionally, because the forehead makes up 35% to 40% of the surface area of the face, it can plays an important role in how masculine a man’s face is. And, of course, a full head of hair is often a sign of virility and manliness.
Men’s Aesthetic Treatments: Facial Fillers
The original facial fillers that first came into use in the 1980s were made from cow collagen and were a crude way to fill wrinkles – but they add volume to the face. But today’s more advanced facial filler technologies have given doctors the tools to fill, define and reshape the angles of the face.
Current research reveals that more than 50% of men would like to reshape their chin and jawline! And the Juvéderm family of facial fillers offers advanced formulas that enable men to achieve a stronger, more pronounced chin and squarer jawline.
New Juvéderm fillers are a thicker consistency of dermal gel that not only fill wrinkles but can also be used to shape and contour the jawline and decrease the appearance of sagging “jowl” skin.
Juvéderm facial fillers can also be used to shape and contour a man’s brow or nose – without surgery and with no downtime – to deliver a more masculine appearance.
Men’s Aesthetic Treatments: Botox
Botox (and other similar Botulinum injections) remains the number one aesthetic treatment for men, with a more than 400% increase over the year 2000, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). And those numbers continue to grow!
Botox for men – sometimes called “Brotox” is most popular with men between 35 and 65 years old. It is most with white-collar professionals who cite competition in the youth-oriented workplace as their major motivation for getting Botox.
Botox works by disabling the muscles that contract and form fine lines and wrinkles. As the facial muscle relax, creases and furrows disappear, and men can look 10 years younger almost immediately! Botox can be injected at the corners of the eyes to reduce and prevent crow’s feet, between the eyebrows to eliminate “11s” (frown lines), in the forehead to decrease creasing, and around the mouth to target laugh lines.
Men’s Aesthetic Treatments: Hair Restoration
Perhaps nothing undermines a man’s confidence in his appearance more than hair loss. But hair loss is a complicated issue with many different underlying causes. The good news is that the anti-aging experts at Tutera Medical in Scottsdale, AZ offers three highly effective, 100% natural, non-surgical hair restoration treatments for men: “Platelet Rich Plasma” (PRP), hormone replacement therapy, and nutritional balancing.
PRP – used in sports medicine for decades – is now available at Tutera medical to repair dead and damaged hair follicles and regrow thicker, healthier hair. And, if a hormone imbalance is contributing to your hair loss, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may help your body regrow hair.
