Celebrities like Wayne Rooney and Simon Cowell now make no secret of their Cosmetic Treatments and while 20 years ago spending time and money on your appearance might have been considered unmanly, no one bats an eye lid when a man buys a moisturiser or removes his body hair anymore.

Most commonly, younger men are seeking treatments for acne scars and skin complaints. While men in their 40s request rejuvenating treatments to slow the signs of ageing and men in their 50s opt for surgical procedures like Facelifts and Breast Reductions.

The most popular treatments requested by men include:
