The demand for laser facial plastic surgery for men has been increasing. Because men tend not to wear make-up and do not wish to take the time off from work associated with surgical procedures, they prefer laser type procedures that usually have minimal associated recovery. These procedures can be used to treat multiple conditions including: photoaging, acne, acne scars, superficial cutaneous problems, and rhinophyma.
