Top 4 Cosmetic Options For Men!
There is a common misconception that cosmetic dermatology is reserved just for women, but this is simply not the case at all. In fact, statistics taken from both The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons and The American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that minimally invasive cosmetic procedures have exponentially increased among male patients year after year. There are so many great cosmetic treatment options that offer extraordinary results for our male patients too. Here are four procedures that you should definitely consider on your next visit to our office.
If you would like to soften some of the lines around your eyes or “Crow’s feet” and other wrinkles on your face and neck, consider Botox®. Botox® is a protein that limits the movement of the muscles in your face. By doing this, it softens the lines and wrinkles that you may have in the area where the Botox® has been injected. This in turn can help you achieve a youthful appearance, chiseled features, and maintain a high level of self-confidence.
As we age, our skin doesn’t maintain the elasticity and bounce back that it once did. This skin laxity can cause the skin on your face and neck to begin to sag and hang down. Thankfully, a great way to reverse this process is through the use of dermal fillers. The vast majority of these fillers are composed of a naturally occurring product in the body called Hyaluronic Acid. They are utilized in a way that helps restore and add lost volume back into the face. This often will help soften the deeper lines and wrinkles of the face and in some cases eliminate them completely; giving you a more youthful appearance.
If you have a great chin and jaw structure, but struggle with the dreaded “double chin” or “turkey neck”, then Kybella (deoxycholic acid) may be a great treatment option for you. Kybella can actually remove some of the excess fat below your chin by dissolving it. This procedure is FDA approved to help your body metabolize the fat pad under the chin. By doing this, it helps make the chin and jaw look chiseled and defined; giving a strong masculine appearance to the face.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
If you have red spots, acne scars, sun damage, dark spots, and/or broken capillaries, then you may be interested in laser skin rejuvenation. This rejuvenation procedure works by shooting light energy onto the top layer of your skin, which then penetrates down into the deeper layers of skin to improve the damage created by sun exposure and the natural aging process. In turn, leaving your skin looking even-toned and youthful.
