Wanting to look and feel your best is not only for women! Men can also benefit from aesthetic treatments to enhance their appearance for a healthier and more youthful look. Whether you want to alter a specific feature, reduce aging signs, or slow down the process, you have many discreet and convenient solutions available. While plastic surgery for your face or body can make significant differences, you may not have the time to invest in it at the moment, and cosmetic treatments can help. Many aesthetic non-surgical procedures offer effects that last up to several months, making it convenient to fit into your busy schedule.
#1 Confidence Boost
Plastic surgery has become more socially acceptable regardless of gender, but some men may prefer to keep their aesthetic treatments confidential. Choosing non-surgical cosmetic options can help since most of them have minimal side effects and require no downtime. This way, you can return to work and resume other daily activities without any disruption.
Enhancing your appearance can significantly boost your confidence and even motivate you to work out more or eat healthier. While reducing aging signs is a common goal when pursuing aesthetic solutions, you may also choose to get them for specific features you are not satisfied with. You may want to remove excessive body hair in certain areas, and laser hair removal can provide semi-permanent results for a wide range of body parts including ears, chest, back, legs, and toes.
Another feature you may want to change is your nose. If you are looking for a nose reduction, plastic surgery remains your best option, but if you are looking to improve the symmetry of your nose for a more harmonious look, certain dermal fillers like Juvéderm or Restylane can help you achieve your desired appearance.
Many aesthetic treatments require 30 to 60 minutes at your provider’s office, and some injections like Botox or certain dermal fillers can take even less time. If you need multiple sessions for your treatment plan, you usually only need a few maintenance appointments every few months after the completion of the initial cycle.
#2 Body Sculpting
Even when you have been consistent with your workout regimen and healthy diet, you may struggle with stubborn fat that refuses to disappear no matter what you do. Body sculpting can help you get rid of it. While liposuction is a popular surgical solution, alternatives exist where you only need a few in-office visits. Some of these treatments can also get rid of cellulite to smooth your skin texture and add definition to your silhouette.
Body contouring non-surgical options include:
Talking with your provider can help determine which solution fits your needs, which may combine several types of treatments to maximize your results. They may also recommend multiple sessions. If you are still in the process of losing weight to reach a specific goal, you may have to wait until you have reached it and stabilized at your desired weight before receiving body sculpting treatments.
Preventing and reducing signs of aging is one of the main motivations for people to seek cosmetic treatments or plastic surgery. If you are not ready for a conventional face lift, you have lots of options to erase fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox injections have been popular for many years and are still an effective solution to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles like crow’s feet or forehead lines. These shots use a botulinum toxin that relaxes your muscles and smooths your skin. Similar injectables include Jeuveau, Xeomin, and Dysport. Results usually last three to four months.
Dermal fillers can restore volume and definition to various parts of your face, including the cheeks and the chin.
Popular fillers include:
Depending on which area you treat and what specific filler your provider use, you may need touch-ups every three to twelve months.
Other cosmetic solutions can safely resurface your skin for a more youthful look. J-Plasma or Renuvion is an advanced method that provides the benefits of both laser and radiofrequency treatments. It can tighten the skin, reduce discoloration, and erase wrinkles.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy, also known as PRP, leverages your own plasma to activate your body’s healing capabilities to restore youthfulness to your skin.
#4 Healthier Skin
Cosmetic treatments can address a broad range of dermatological concerns. Your provider can assess your skin and customize treatments to your needs, whether they recommend facials, microneedling, chemical peels, or laser resurfacing.
Non-surgical aesthetic services can treat:
- Spider veins
- Sun damage
Clearer and healthier skin can prevent itchiness, redness, or blackheads, which in turn helps you feel more confident about your appearance. Making sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least an SPF 30 is always a good idea to promote healthy skin, especially after receiving certain aesthetic treatments.
