Vanity Transcends Gender at ASTIQUE The Aesthetic Clinic
[by Bianca Zen]
Aesthetic clinics, once the refuge of mostly women, have seen an increase in male patronage over the years. Indeed, looking good opens doors both on a professional and social level.
The media via its tentacles of publicly-available mediums is arguably the main sphere of influence when it comes to men and their acceptance of aesthetic procedures. We’re exposed to news and gossips of male celebrities, who’ve either gone under the knife, had implants or had “something done” on a daily basis, well, almost.
These constant bombardments have slowly but surely removed the taboo label associated with aesthetic procedures, especially amongst men.
Men these days are more open in admitting to having a procedure done or at least admitting to having thoughts about getting one.
There are of course treatments that are essential for a man to consider like botox injections to cure sweaty problems or the removal of unsightly hairs on the back but what is surprising is the significant rise in the number of men who opt for facelifts, permanent hair removal, eye surgery and nose jobs, to name a few surgeries usually associated with vanity more than health.
The advance in aesthetic sciences has now even made it possible for men who want to get an instant not only 6- but 8-pack abs! Though most of these surgeries don’t come cheap, studies have revealed that money is not an issue when it comes to a man wanting to achieve his aesthetic best.
With the constant evolution of technology, this trend looks set to soar even higher. Perhaps it’s not even too far-fetched to say that one day men might just overtake women when it comes to patients’ statistics at aesthetic clinics.
