When you think of cosmetic procedures you generally think of something that’s of interest to women only, however, more and more men are interested in feeling and looking good. Sometimes men could be reluctant or shy to inquire about available cosmetic procedures. I would like to demystify my 10 favorite procedures that men can do without downtime that truly make a difference.
Botox- Botox is still the all-time favorite choice for men and women. Botox has been used for years in the medical field in children with strabismus. This purified protein made its debut when doctors noticed wrinkles were smoothing out when injecting it for medical purposes. Now millions of people around the world are smoothing out their forehead lines and crow’s feet. The procedure takes 10 minutes and you can relax frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles for 3-4 months. Best of all you look very natural! Botox can also eliminate unwanted underarm sweat.
Fillers- Fillers like Voluma, Juvederm and Sculptra can be used to replace volume lost due to aging in the cheeks, nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Juvederm and Voluma are comprised of a naturally occurring sugar molecule that is already in your body called hyaluronic acid. They last 1 to 3 years, giving you a refreshed and more rested look.
Sculpsure- Sculpsure is a non-invasive laser treatment that can melt fat in the abdominal area or flanks (“muffin” top) in 25 minutes. It reduces inches with no downtime.
Sculpsure is a ground breaking new laser for the purpose of fat destruction. This new laser uses light waves to destroy fat cells under the skin. Fat is carried away via your own body’s lymphatic system. Unlike cryolipolysis which freezes fat cells, Sculpsure melts fat and as a result of using heat, it tightens and tones skin.
Laser Hair Removal- Getting rid of unwanted hair on the back, face, legs and arms is quick and effective using Palomar’s Vectus Laser. The treatment hand piece is big enough to treat larger areas quick and easy. To laser a man’s back can take less than 15 minutes. This is beneficial for men who get ingrown hairs or razor burn.
IPL- Broken capillaries and sun spots on the face around the nose and hands can be treated with IPL (intense pulsed light) a laser-type device, usually a series of 3 treatment is required. IPL helps to brighten skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots on any part of the body.
Hydrafacial- The hydrafacial is a new generation “microdermabrasion” using vortex vacuum technology to exfoliate and detoxify the skin leaving your skin extremely clean and hydrated. With its hydrating properties, this facial cleanses, exfoliates and extracts impurities leaving the skin rejuvenated. The hydrafacial replaces microdermabrasion with a new name, “hydradermabrasion.” With its patented technology, the hydrafacial is a treatment that helps dislodge and remove toxins in the skin leaving you with relaxed and refreshed skin.
Sclerotherapy- Men get veins on their legs too! From genetics, to sports or standing all day long. Treating unsightly veins on the legs with a few simple injections of Asclera, the latest agent to treat small veins can diminish these stubborn veins that won’t go away any other way.
IV Vitamin Therapy- If you are plagued by low energy, jet lag, hangovers, colds, or in general want to stay healthy, there are different IV Vitamin options that can alleviate those symptoms. IV Therapy has become the gold standard in preventative medicine offering a boost in immunity and health in addition to medicinal therapies.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement- Staying on your game at work and strong in the gym is a priority for most men. Low testosterone can lead to many symptoms ranging from decreased muscle mass, low energy, difficulty sleeping at night, to low libido. After checking your hormone levels we can replete missing testosterone to its optimal level.
Unbalanced hormones are responsible for the millions of people who suffer from an array of problematic symptoms. The human desire to muscle through the hormonal changes leaves so many untreated. Hormones are a silent controller and a big part of our functionality. A simple blood test can help to identify the deficiencies in your body. Helping you to overcome these issues and relieve these symptoms is a big deal and one we don’t take lightly. So if you have any of these symptoms and are just a bit curious, then it may be time to get checked out.
Nail Fungus Therapy- causes nails to thicken, discolor, disfigure and split. Without treatment the toenails can become so thick they press against the inside of shoes causing pressure, irritation and pain. By using a q quick laser treatment the fungus is heated up and killed within seconds. After the nail grows out of a few months, the nail will become clear again. Say goodbye to costly topical and oral medications to treat this condition.
