It has become increasingly popular for men to request cosmetic medical procedures, and many practices are missing out on this opportunity because they market specifically to women. A few years ago the term “metrosexual” became popular as a description for men who cared about their looks more than the average Joe. However, the popularity of this term has faded because men making themselves look better is now the norm. According to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of cosmetic medical procedures for men has increased more than 88% since 1997. With cosmetic medical procedures on the rise, men are more likely to receive skin services to maintain the benefits that come with undergoing these procedures. The time has come to start looking at new and innovative ways to draw the male population into your facility.
