Cosmetic treatments for men are becoming more popular than ever before. In 2011, more than 300,000 men received Botox treatment for their wrinkles! Men are quickly learning that cosmetic treatments, including Botox and fillers, can help them to keep their youthful appearance – without anyone knowing they have had a cosmetic treatment.
- Botox and Dysport: Botox and Dysport are both purified proteins that are used to relax overactive muscles of the face. By relaxing the overactive muscles that lead to deep wrinkles, Botox and Dysport can soften wrinkles that are already present and prevent the formation of deep wrinkles in the future. The most common areas for men to have Botox or Dysport are the glabella (between the brows), crows feet (lines at the sides of the eyes), and the horizontal wrinkles on the forehead.
- Fillers: Restylane, Perlane, and Radiesse are all popular dermal fillers used to replenish lost volume for men. These fillers can be used in many areas of the face, though men typically benefit most from treatment to their tear trough (to fill in the hollowness under their eyes) and nasolabial folds (smile lines.)
- Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion uses diamond exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and unveil the healthier, brighter skin just beneath the surface. A short series of microdermabrasion treatments can make the skin’s surface smoother and help the pores to appear smaller.
- Chemical Peels: Chemical peels are popular with our male patients who have hyperpigmentation (from old acne lesions or shaving bumps), rosacea, or just dull skin. Our most popular chemical peel for men is the Gloss Peel, a TCA peel that removes the superficial layer of the skin, to improve the texture of the skin and brighten the appearance of the skin.
When performed by an experienced dermatologist, cosmetic treatments can help men to look younger and healthier, while keeping the desired masculine look.
