While it’s true that women represent the majority of cosmetic treatments, the number of men interested in cosmetics is on the rise! Men are spending more time and money on cosmetic procedures than ever. So what are the best treatments for men’s cosmetics?
“What can I do about this redness and blood vessels?” This is a question we get multiple times daily. Topical treatments and antibiotics are sometimes just not enough to effectively treat the facial redness of Rosacea. Our Sciton BBL treatment is highly effective at improving and managing that stubborn redness. These treatments may be performed on the entire face, neck, chest, or in a more targeted fashion to treat problem areas.
Treatment: Sciton Laser BBL treatment, recommended 2-3 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Downtime: None. Post-treatment, sunscreen is applied and the patient may return to work or regular activities.
A strong and defined jawline is considered masculine. Sometimes submental fullness (aka the double chin), can be a tricky area to target, in fact, diet and exercise typically do not improve this problem- as it is genetic. Kybella is an injection that reduces and eliminates the fat cells permanently. Ultherapy is another non-invasive procedure which uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten skin on the jawline and neck. Maximum results are seen with a combination of using Kybella to eliminate the double chin followed by Ultherapy to tighten the skin on the lower face accentuating the jawline.
Treatment: Kybella Injection, recommended 2-3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Downtime: Slight swelling at the injection site, considered “social downtime” as patients are able to return to work and normal routines immediately after.
Downtime: Mild swelling in the treatment area. May return to a normal routine within 24 hours.
This is hands down, our most popular treatment among the men! Excessive sweating of the underarms can cause embarrassment, anxiety, and low self-esteem. MiraDry is a non-invasive procedure to treating underarm sweat and odor by permanently eliminating the sweat glands.
Downtime: Mild soreness and bruising in the underarms x1 week. Patients are able to return to physical activity within one week.
When it comes to hair removal, the most common treatment areas are the face, neck, and back. This is a popular treatment for mean who frequently get ingrown hairs that become inflamed and infected. Several treatments are necessary for maximum results.
Treatment: Sciton Laser Hair Removal, multiple treatments spaced 6 weeks apart.
Downtime: None. Patients are able to return to work and normal routine immediately after.
Botox and fillers are highly effective in men. Botox or Dysport can be injected into the crow’s feet and glabella (aka “angry lines” between the brow) to help ease the deep wrinkles. Dermal fillers can be injected into the lower face for men (smile lines, jowls, etc.) with the goal of smoothing out the wrinkles without losing the more firm, masculine facial form.
Downtime: None, has the potential for pinpoint bruising.
Downtime: Mild swelling and bruising in injections site.
Another common concern of men on a daily basis is how to fix thinning hair. Many new treatments are on the horizon for hair-loss treatment that is non-invasive. Our newest procedure is Platelet Rich Plasma. Using PRP stimulates inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase.
Treatment: PRP with Microneedling
Downtime: Redness in treatment area x2-4 days.
