There's been a big change in the aesthetics industry over the last few years. There's also been a change in society over the last 10 years. so how has this had an impact on the aesthetics industry? Well, one area where we've seen a change is the popularity of mens aesthetic treatments.
Why have aesthetic treatments for men grown in popularity?
There could be a number of contributing factors that would lead to the growing popularity of aesthetic treatments for men.
Social media will have had a big impact on influencing the public. But look at the people who are influencing the public. You have sporting legends who are known for their looks (especially to non-sports fans) just as much as their sporting talent.
David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and Steve Weatherford are just 3 names. If they don't directly influence a man to make a decision to book in for an aesthetic treatment, what about their wives or girlfriends? Has your wife or girlfriend ever suggested you should get your hair cut a certain way, perhaps lose a bit of weight, or even go for an aesthetic treatment?
30-40% of patients that visit our Lancashire aesthetics clinic are men. Quite a lot, right? Many of them ask, "I'm I one of the only men that come to see you?" They are always surprised to hear that in fact, nearly half of our patients are men. So don't be put off thinking looking good is exclusive to women, because it isn't. Plus, we all appreciate a man who takes care of his appearance. Win:win.
Here's a list of the most popular aesthetic treatments for men. These are the most requested aesthetic treatments by the men who visit our Lancashire aesthetics clinic.
#1 Lip fillers
No, that's not a typo. Lip fillers can and are given to men. It's a lot more popular than you think.
You may be thinking of a glamour model with a big pumped up pout when you think of lip fillers. That's not what we're talking about.
If you want an image in your minds about lip fillers and what sort of look you could expect. Think about Tom Hardy. (We're not saying he's had lip fillers) but he does have full lips. If your lips are looking a little thin and you want to give them a slight enhancement, lip fillers would be a fantastic treatment for you.

#2 Wrinkle relaxing treatment (Botox®)
Wrinkle relaxing (Botox®) is probably the most popular treatment requested by men in our Lancashire clinic.
It's easy to see why. Most people, whether they are "into" aesthetic treatments, or not will have heard of Botox® and therefore know what it does.
Wrinkle relaxing does just that, it smoothes out the wrinkles on your face and leaves you looking much younger, almost instantly. We do get questions or concerns from men saying they don't want that frozen look. Or that they still want to be able to move their eyebrows.
At Julie Pawson Aesthetics, we offer wrinkle relaxing treatments that will leave your face looking younger and smoother, but still very much functional.
As you will see below, the differences between both pictures are subtle. That's the sort of look you can expect from our Lancashire based aesthetics clinic.
#3 Non-surgical jaw augmentation
The non-surgical jaw augmentation has been our most requested aesthetics treatment of 2018. The results we've seen from our patients have been amazing. Imagine having that chiselled jaw your genetics didn't bless you with.
If you've always been insecure about your jawline, or you've just always wanted a sculpted jawline, you can now have it. The best part? You don't need to go under the knife to achieve that look. Read more here
This has been a very popular treatment with our female patients too. Instagram has had a huge influence and stars such as Kylie Jenner.
