One of the most common concerns for men are wrinkles, regardless if they appear between the eyes, (crows feet) around their mouth and on their forehead. The continuous movement of the muscles causes facial wrinkles.  There is a quick and easy fix to make a man look softer on the edges and put the bounce back into the skin without any down time. Rumors say that Botox or neuromodulators will give men a “frozen non-expressive” look which makes men think it is too metrosexual for them to enhance their look. However, neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport can be administered lightly where you can still have facial expressions without the permanent deep lines and wrinkles.   

 


Having to go under the knife was the only option in the past to achieve tighter skin and a restored youthful look. Now, dermal fillers have revolutionized the medical industry.  Dermal fillers make it possible to look years younger with just a few painless injections. These injections can correct and enhance the skin without the use of a scalpel. This procedure is so quick and effective, your closest friends will be asking how you became so well rested!

Aside, from looking healthy and restored, there are so many creative ways to utilize dermal filler.  When you think of a filler, imagine a cushion under the skin. It rejuvenates the effect of youthfulness in the folds around the mouth and fullness in the cheeks, as well as chiseling a nose or defining a chin in small detail just enough to make a slight perfection.  However, men need to choose their injectors wisely.  Sometimes, you can over enhance the area, and the results are over barring.  Although, the best part about hyaluronic acid is that it is reversible.  A product can be injected to dissolve it at any time. 


Foto facials are very popular for removing brown spots, broken capillaries, and boosting the collagen in the skin.  This type of laser is a crystal of visual light.  Many rosacea patients find this procedure very helpful in maintaining their outbreaks.  Redness, texture and acne are typically put at bay with a series of these treatments and compliant use of home skincare. This procedure has very little down time and has a very pleasing result for men and women.   Patients with pigment freckles, age spots, or red vascular and minimal down time are perfect candidates.  Typically, a bit of swelling occurs around the eyes and the pigment gets dark like coffee grounds.  By the third day most pigment has come to the surface and will be crusting off in the next few days.  By the seventh day the skin looks rejuvenated and healthy with a youthful glow!

Skin Rejuvenation

This is the newest laser technology on the market.  It is a radio frequency laser combined with microneedling. What this laser does is so remarkable, and rewarding to the skin.  This breakthrough technology improves acne scars, texture, skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and facial rejuvenation.  How this delivers the radio frequency is by creating a micro wound that results in minimal down time. This laser has a state of the art tip that is safe for all skin types.  Most C02 lasers are only beneficial to lighter skin tones.  The Live does not see color nor does it leave you with the downtime of a C02 laser. Most patients have very little swelling and redness.  The whole process is typically painless. For those of you who are more sensitive, a numbing agent may be applied for your comfort.  One weekend of recovery leads to tightened skin and pores, collagen reproduction, and texture improvement that keeps producing for up to 6 months.

The newest and longest-lasting cosmetic enhancements on the market is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic but biocompatible material that is not harmful to the body and has decades of history.  Sculptra has been used safely for a variety of medical purposes, including restoration of disfigurement to the face. 

Sculuptra has been making its mark since 1999 in Europe and in 2004 it was used on H.I.V. patients with hollowed cheeks. This injectable was used to create volume from the loss of fat in the face.  It attaches to the collagen and causes your own collagen to reproduce itself.  Sculptra was approved by the Food and Drug Administration for cosmetic use in 2009.  Since Sculptra has been FDA approved in the U.S. there have been so many new uses for this incredible product. 

Most thin people age the worst! Loosing fat from the face creates a gaunt unhealthy appearance that no one wants. The skin basically sags on the scull bones and, the nose begins to seem larger as well.  The eyes become deep set and you get that hardened look.  This protein takes effect growing your own collagen and volume.  Sculptra restores a natural and youthful structure.

Microdermabrasion, also known as microderm, is one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments you can get. Its benefits are many: microderm softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring, decreases pore size, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots. Microdermabrasion also makes it easier for high-tech skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.

The Venus Freeze is a revolutionary treatment which is highly effective in circumference reduction, improving cellulite, skin tightening and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Venus Freeze uses pulsed magnetic fields, which provide you with the added benefits of increased oxygen, nutrients and blood to the skin – giving it an immediate and long lasting glow. Using patented (MP)² technology, Venus Freeze utilizes multi-polar radio frequency and Pulsed Magnetic fields which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes new collagen to form and the production of new elastin fibers.  The active collage in the skin contracts, while achieving tighter skin, softening of wrinkles and reduced cellulite, and the treatment feels like a hot stone massage!

Hyperhidrosis – a condition that causes excessive sweating – affects around 3% of the population, often causing embarrassment, discomfort, and anxiety. Over half of people with hyperhidrosis are never diagnosed or treated, despite the fact that it is considered a serious medical condition.

The unique Precision TX™ device targets the sweat glands in the underarm area and uses focused laser energy to ablate their function. In the past, treatment for hyperhidrosis varied from BOTOX® injections and topical creams to invasive surgical procedures – all of which only provided temporary relief. Precision TX™ not only gives patients long term relief from excessive sweating, but the procedure is also easily tolerated under local anesthesia with no downtime, minimal discomfort, and no side effects.

The 60 to 90 minute office-based treatment requires numbing with local anesthesia and mild or moderate sedation. The thin 2mm laser fiber is introduced through five micro entry ports, hidden below the chin, earlobes and lower edge of the sideburn. There is no cutting, no stitches and minimal downtime. Patients can return to work and normal activity within a few days. Bruising and swelling are usually easily covered. PrecisionTx is a one-time treatment and provides lasting tightening, lifting and contouring. Results continue to improve for several months following the procedure. Additional collagen builds in the deep layers of the skin for up to a year.

Our bodies have a natural repair and healing process that reacts to injury by producing new collagen and elastin. SkinPen initiates this injury response using microneedling – a technique that creates hundreds of temporary micro channels or openings in the skin without any thermal energy or skin removal. These are called fractionated injuries. The temporary micro channels allow for optimal delivery, penetration and diffusion of topical treatments into the skin. A quick, safe and effective method to induce production of collagen that is non-ablative (no skin removal), requires no thermal energy and promotes quick, scar-free healing. Safe for all skin types with no risk of fibrosis. Similar to mild sunburn, redness, swelling and tenderness may follow the procedure, but patients can expect no significant downtime with SkinPen. After just one day, patients may return to normal activities.

Upper eyelid excess skin and fat can create a heavy looking eyelid, aged appearance, puffiness, and sometimes block vision. Upper blepharoplasty is performed to remove excess skin and fat and can improve vision. Double eyelid surgery (sometimes termed Asian eyelid surgery) is performed to create an upper eyelid crease. Double eyelid surgery is also called Westernization of the eyelid. Lower blepharoplasty is performed to remove excess skin, reduce wrinkles, and improve the shape of the lower eyelid by removing skin and fat. Sometimes tightening the eyelid is needed to correct droopiness or sagging. Adding fat is done to improve a “hollowed” appearance.
