Men in the U.S. more open to cosmetic treatments
March 22, 2011
While beauty treatments such as trips to the spa, tanning sessions and cosmetic procedures were once thought of as women-only services, it seems that more and more men are open to the idea of taking care of themselves. Men who are entering their middle-age and senior years in particular are looking into the treatments as a way to look and feel younger, according to the York Daily Record.
Other treatments popular among male clientele are hair and liver spot removals, tattoo removal and "manscaping," which refers to trimming one's body hair, according to the news source.
"It just makes me feel better," Jess Plushanski, who received laser hair removal treatments to rid himself of his back hair, told the news source. "I can go outside without scaring the neighbors. I can walk around without being Sasquatch."
There are many procedures that are suitable for men. Those who are interested in the options available should discuss various cosmetic treatments with a board-certified plastic surgeon, according to The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), is recognized as the world’s leading organization devoted entirely to aesthetic plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine of the face and body.
