According to Forbes, more men than ever are now taking better care of their skin and are growing increasingly more concerned with preventing the effects of ageing. As a result, they are turning to dermal filler treatments that rejuvenate the skin and stimulate new collagen. The advantages of instant results and no recovery time also make these procedures more desirable.
When it comes to dermal filler treatments, the biggest difference between men and women is that women tend to arrive at their appointments with a very specific idea of how they want to look post-treatment. It’s even common for women to enter the clinic with images they have seen on social media that represent the results they are after. Men, however, are quicker to trust that their aesthetician’s skills and expertise will guide them into selecting the right treatment. Men generally ask to look better at pre-treatment consultations with no specific desires.
The stigma of men receiving dermal fillers is steadily decreasing, and this treatment is even starting to become a norm as many are now reconsidering gender stereotypes. However, it’s not something most men are posting on social media about or openly discussing with their peers. With leading cosmetics brands such as Chanel, Fenty and Tom Ford now offering make-up for men, it’s obvious that outdated stigmas are beginning to change.
