stk212525rkeA plastic surgeon based in Calgary, Canada, has noticed a rise in the number of men coming into his clinic for Botox and other non-surgical treatments for lines and wrinkles. Dr Jason McWhirter, who is a specialist in skin care and dermatology, says that both men and women are requesting information about such procedures but the increase in men is particularly noticeable.“As non-surgical treatments are becoming more popular, I've noticed more men coming into my practice interested in how these procedures can help them appear more youthful. “More men are recognising the benefits of these non-surgical treatments. They see that treatment time is quick–about 15 to 20 minutes – and it can last for months, making it a great option for those who are not quite ready for a surgical procedure.” Dr McWhirter has also seen an increase in men asking for laser hair removal.
