Cosmetic Dermatology for Men in Houston

In 2010 more than one million men in the US elected to have a cosmetic procedure of some sort, and in many instances the procedure involved cosmetic dermatology.  When polled, men revealed that they want to look their best just as much as women.  It seems that the general acceptance of cosmetic procedures by the public has taken away some of the stigma from men having treatments like Botox, dermabrasion, dermal fillers, or a photofacial through intense pulsed light (IPL).  Botox helps to eliminate frown lines and a furrowed brow, dermal fillers plump up deep lines in areas like the nasolabial folds, and IPL treats prominent blood vessels and brown spots on facial skin.  In 2010, there was a 9% increase in men having Botox and a 10% increase in men having dermal fillers.  Besides wanting to look their best, men relayed that a tight job market is another motivation – especially when one’s competition for a job may be in his/her 30’s.  West Houston Dermatology is an excellent resource for men who are looking to freshen up their appearance through a non-invasive procedure, and the professionals there are experienced in working with men’s aesthetic issues.
