The point in life or age bracket when men are more likely to invest in facial aesthetics, can vary. However, men tend to show increased interest in these treatments in a few common stages of life.
Around 10 per cent of people who visit my clinic are men, ranging from early 20s to mid-80s. Their reasons for enquiring and investing in facial aesthetics greatly vary, too. Personal, social, economic and work-related factors all influence their decision-making.
Some common points in life, however, include:
Early Adulthood (20s to 30s)
During this early adulthood phase, men often become more conscious of their appearance and may consider preventative measures to maintain a youthful look. Some men in their 20s and 30s start noticing the early signs of ageing, such as fine lines or loss of facial volume. They may choose facial aesthetic treatments like Botulinum toxin or dermal fillers to address these concerns and maintain a fresh appearance. Additionally, men in their early adulthood might be motivated by career aspirations, dating, or social pressures to invest in facial aesthetics.
Midlife (40s to 50s)
The midlife stage is a typical period when men may seek facial aesthetic treatments. They will undoubtedly experience more noticeable signs of ageing, such as deep wrinkles, sagging skin, or volume loss – and these issues can knock self-confidence. Men in their 40s and 50s might be motivated to address these concerns to maintain a youthful and competitive edge in their professional and personal lives. Treatments such as non-surgical facelifts or an 8-point liquid facelift will rejuvenate their appearance and boost their confidence.
- Pre-Retirement (Late 50s to 60s)
As men approach retirement age, they often become more aware of their appearance and may desire to maintain a youthful look for their post-retirement lifestyle. With more time on their hands, often disposable income, and the desire to stay active and engaged, men in their late 50s and 60s might consider facial aesthetic treatments to address ageing concerns and regain a more refreshed appearance. They may opt for treatments like facial rejuvenation procedures, including non-surgical facelifts or neck lifts, dermal fillers and PLEXR to combat eyebags and eyelids to achieve more long-lasting and transformative results.
Post-Retirement (60s and beyond)
In their post-retirement years, men may still be motivated to invest in facial aesthetics to feel confident and maintain an active lifestyle. The desire to counteract the effects of ageing, including deep wrinkles, skin laxity, and volume loss, can be high, especially if the individual has a vibrant social life. Treatments like injectables, skin tightening procedures, or PLEXR can help men in this age bracket achieve natural-looking results and maintain a youthful appearance.
Minor surgery is also an option to combat unsightly lumps and bumps. Small brown or flesh-coloured skin tags, warts and moles can easily be removed and age spots faded with pigmentation and skin quality treatments.
How to know what facial aesthetic treatments are right for you?
It’s important to note that these age brackets are general and may vary for each individual. The decision to pursue facial aesthetic treatments is highly personal and can be influenced by factors such as individual goals, overall health, and personal preferences. Consulting with a qualified professional can help determine the most appropriate treatments based on circumstances.
