In recent years, an increasing number of men are seeking cosmetic procedures to achieve and maintain a youthful appearance.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of cosmetic procedures performed on men has increased by over 325% since the late 1990s. 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men in 2018 alone, representing a 29 percent increase since 2000.
In New York, skin tightening treatments are increasingly popular among men seeking to maintain a youthful appearance. Let’s explore some of our favorites.
Why are More Men Getting Cosmetic Treatments?
Our Upper East Side practice has seen an exponential increase in male patients since 2020, without any increased focus on acquiring male patients.
Patients have shared with us that their main reasons for seeking rejuvenating treatments include:
Competitive Job Market
Maintaining a youthful appearance can help men, and women, get hired or promoted. By presenting themselves as rejuvenated, it sends a subliminal message that they are likely to remain longer and work harder.
Certain procedures and ‘tweakments’ can also help alter how patients appear to their co-workers, clients and even friends and family.
For example, jawline contouring or a chin implant can help establish a more authoritative look. Neuromodulators like Botox can help an individual appear less upset and more rested.
One of the reasons male patients elect to work with Dr. Jennifer Levine is her globally-recognized ability to create results that look natural, noticeable, yet subtle.
Let’s explore the most effective skin tightening treatments in New York, tailored for men who aim to maintain a youthful appearance.
Top Skin Tightening Treatments for Men in New York
When it comes to improving their features, the more natural looking, the better. Anti-aging botox is always the first option to prevent those forehead lines, with full or ‘mini’ facelifts, eyelid surgery, and fillers coming in next.
Let’s dive into each one!
Ultherapy: Skin Tightening for the Face and Neck
Ultherapy is one of the top non-invasive skin tightening treatments because it addresses the same deep layers of tissue as a surgical facelift. This time-tested is the gold standard in skin tightening. It works by using ultrasound to stimulate collagen production, which lifts and tightens skin.
Ideal for patients with mild to moderately loose skin around the face and neck, Ultherapy requires no downtime and takes about 30-90 minutes per treatment. Results gradually improve over time and can last up to 2 years, making it an appealing option for men seeking gradual results.

Emface Skin Tightening Treatment: Contour & Lift
Emface is a facial rejuvenation treatment that simultaneously stimulates new collagen and elastin production while strengthening underlying facial muscles. It uses synchronized radiofrequency (RF) and high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energies to achieve a dual effect.
Over a series of 4 weekly 20-minute Emface sessions, radiofrequency deeply heats facial tissues to renew collagen and elastin. This creates a smoothing effect, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At the same time, high intensity electromagnetic energy works on a muscular level to strengthen and build volume in facial muscles.
The combination redefines facial contours to counteract sagging cheeks, jowls and loose neck skin associated with aging. Patients see a tighter, more lifted and youthfully defined appearance across the full face, including cheeks, jawline, chin and neck with zero downtime required.
Botox: A Leading Facial Rejuvenation Treatment for Men in NYC
In 2021, over 330,000 Botox procedures were performed on men!
If you’re trying to reduce visible signs of aging in the face and neck, this neuromodulator is for you. It’s also used to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Botox results last 3-4 months before needing repeat injections. There is minimal downtime, with occasional minor bruising at injection sites.
Botox gives the appearance of tighter skin as it lifts the brow and relaxes the facial muscles to provide a smoother appearance to skin.
Dermal Fillers: A Go-To for Men in NYC
Cosmetic fillers like hyaluronic acid can plump areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging. Common areas filled include the temples, cheeks, jawline, lips and under the eyes. The injection of the fillers can take as little as 15 minutes.
Results typically last 6-12 months before repeat injections are needed. No downtime is required, though there may be temporary swelling at injection sites. Fillers help restore a more youthful, contoured appearance.
Eyelid Surgery in New York: A Key to Youthful Eyes
This is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin and fat from the eyelids to create a more alert, youthful appearance.
A blepharoplasty removes excess fat, muscle, and skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids. This recontours the area around the eyes so they appear more open, rested, and youthful. An upper blepharoplasty addresses hooding eyebrows and sagging skin folds, while a lower blepharoplasty reduces puffiness and bags under the eyes.
Recovery takes 1-2 weeks with bruising and swelling. Results last for years before any redo procedures may be needed.
Facelift and Neck Lift: Synergistic Skin Tightening Solutions in NYC
For a more advanced solution to lift and tighten the skin on the face and neck, a facelift or neck lift might be your best option. During a facelift, Dr. Levine makes small incisions around the ears and hairline to tighten underlying muscles and remove excess skin and fat. The extent of the incisions varies depending on the individual’s features and the results to be achieved. This procedure comprehensively addresses jowls, sagging cheeks, loose neck skin, and wrinkles/folds along the nose and mouth.
The chin and the neck are also addressed to achieve a balanced look, and liposuction may be used to remove excess fat under the neck.
Good candidates for a facelift include men in their 40s up to 60s who are experiencing moderate to severe sagging of facial and neck skin.
Recovery takes up to 6 weeks, with minor swelling and bruising. It can take about a year for the best results to be visible.
Results typically last 7-10 years before a revision facelift may be required.
