Women on Long Island have long been taking advantage of anti-aging treatments like Botox injections, dermal fillers and chemical peels for a fresher, more youthful complexion.Year over year,though, more men are getting into the act. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that 10 percent of cosmetic procedures performed in 2012 were for male patients, and while that may seem like a small amount, it signifies a major shift in these customer demographics. Given how commonplace these treatments are becoming, you can bet that the figures for 2013 will be even greater.
Some plastic surgeons have even predicted that men who opt for a minor cosmetic procedure such as Botox will eventually be enticed to invest in further enhancements, particularly since the benefits of these injections are so immediate. An ABC-affiliate in Louisiana recently reported on this trend, noting that more male patients are seeing how relatively painless injectables can be – and how natural the results are in the hands of a board-certified plastic surgeon.
Men these days are definitely more image-conscious than generations past, and the male cosmetic industry has grown by leaps in bounds to meet the demand.Microdermabrasion– the process by which old, dead skin is removed to give you a revitalized look – is also becoming increasingly popular among gentlemen on Long Island who are looking for a fast and effective way to take off a few years and feel fresh-faced again.
