Top 5 Non-surgical cosmetic treatments: Men v. Women
American Society of Plastic Surgeons that we blogged about last month, here is a look at how men and women differ in the cosmetic treatments they are choosing. First, lets set the record straight, in this study women represent 91% of all cosmetic procedures, and men only 9%. Among the minimally-invasive procedures, women outnumber men more than 10 to 1 — however, the number of men getting these non-surgical treatment rose 8% from 2010 to 2011 (women's growth from the previous year was 6%).
The number one treatment for both men and women was Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox® and Dysport™). The genders share the other Top 5 treatments as well (laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and facial fillers), just in a different order. Here's a look (below) at how they differ by gender.
