Why Medical Spas Aren’t Just for Women

A Growing Number of Men Are Opting for Botox, CoolSculpting, & Laser Hair Removal


A common stereotype in the wellness industry is that medical spa treatments are for women. However, statistics don’t bear that out. While it’s true that women are more likely to seek out medical spas, medical spa treatments are becoming increasingly common with men.

For instance, the number of men getting Botox has increased 337% in a decade.

Likewise, we’re seeing more and more men come in to Esteem for CoolSculpting and laser hair removal. Read on to learn more about these popular treatments and how they’re used to treat our male patients at Esteem.

Botox for Men

Botox is a safe, FDA-approved procedure that minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

This process—sometimes referred to as Brotox for men—takes about 15 minutes, and it’s one of the most effective ways to reduce and prevent visible signs of aging.  Typically, the results last between 3-4 months.

CoolSculpting for Men

This is actually one of the most common treatments among our male patients. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, safe way to remove stubborn fat deposits that won’t budge, no matter how much you diet or exercise.

With CoolSculpting, a cooling device is selectively applied to fat, causing fat cells to die. Those fat cells are then removed by the body over the next few weeks, giving patients a leaner, more toned look.

While CoolSculpting can be used on many different parts of the body, most men use it to slim down their chin, stomach, back, or sides.

Laser Hair Removal for Men

With laser hair removal, we use a laser to target the pigment in hair follicles. This intense light destroys the hair beneath the skin, leaving a smoother surface overall.

Laser hair removal is an ideal solution for men who want to remove unwanted hair from their shoulders, back, chest, torso, or face. It can even be used to thin out thick, unruly hair, if you don’t want to eliminate your hair permanently.
