Looking Younger Isn’t Just for the Ladies!
- Posted on: Oct 15 2017
In the 2016 statistics from the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures increased by 9% in 2016. And, while the majority of procedures are still for women, the number of men trying to stay younger-looking is growing every year. At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, we have a variety of procedures tailored just for the needs of men.
In 2016, women accounted for 86.2% of all cosmetic procedures worldwide, 20,362,655 procedures. But men aren’t staying out of the game. Last year, 13.8% of cosmetic procedures were for men, 3,264,254 procedures. And, of course, the world’s most popular cosmetic procedure every year since it debuted in 2002, was the injection of Botox and other brands such as Dysport and Xeomin. These botulinum toxin injections totaled 4,627,752 alone and increased 7% over 2015.
Men don’t want to look old
There once was a line of thinking that said men enjoyed being wrinkly and weathered. Kind of an homage to the faces of Robert Redford and Clint Eastwood. This look, basically a nice way to say skin damage, supposedly gave a man’s face “character.”
Well, those days are over. Today, men don’t want to look like they’ve been left out in the sun too long. Older men have to compete with younger men in the office. And younger men have no interest in looking older or hairier anymore.
For men at Northcoast
We want our male patients to look refreshed, rejuvenation, and more toned. Those criteria also point to one word — younger! To that end, we’re not a surgery center, but we have various laser and other types of procedures that are perfect for men. And just about all of them have little or no downtime.
At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, we have a variety of laser procedures such as Infini and laser skin resurfacing that tighten the skin and lessen the appearance of lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and other skin issues. Microneedling uses 12 tiny needles to create thousands of microscopic puncture channels through the epidermis layer of the skin down into the dermis. Microneedling causes a “wound response” in the skin, which triggers the production of new collagen in the area. Collagen provides the structural support that keeps the skin firm and taut.
We also have many male patients who come in for Botox or dermal filler injections. After all, men don’t like crow’s feet (solved with Botox) any more than women. And nasolabial folds and parentheses line (targets of dermal fillers) are just as ugly on a man’s face. A new injectable product, Kybella, even removes the fat creating your double chin.
We also we use our lasers to remove those tiny squiggly red, purple, and blue lines on your legs — spider veins. Plus, for unwanted hair, such as on the back or shoulders, even the chest, our selection of lasers offers the finest laser hair removal.
Finally, for those unwanted fat pockets on the lower belly or the love handles, CoolSculpting removes 20% of the fat without any surgery.
Men, there’s no need to look your age! Call the team at Northcoast Laser and let’s talk about how we can help you look younger, 440-NEW-FACE.
