Cosmetic Treatments for Men

BOTOX FOR MEN

Are you a man that’s bothered by deepening frown lines or crow’s feet around your eyes? Have you started to notice your skin sagging or cheeks becoming hollow and flat? Do you want to achieve a lean, toned, and cut physique, but aren’t prepared to undergo surgery?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then there are a number of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments for men that can help you look and feel your best.

Continue reading to learn all about your options for noninvasive facial rejuvenation and body contouring, including Botox for men, fillers for men, laser hair removal for men, CoolTone for men, and CoolSculpting for men.

Here’s what you need to know about each procedure, and what patients can expect should they decide to undergo any of these noninvasive treatments for men.

What Is Botox for Men?

Botox for men is an FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to correct moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and creases and restore a youthful and refreshed appearance.

How Does Botox Work?

When injected into targeted facial muscles, Botox blocks the nerve impulses that signal muscles to contract. This causes muscles to remain in a relaxed state and prevents them from wrinkling skin above.

As a result, expression lines soften, and skin looks smoother and more youthful.

What Can Guys Expect from the Procedure?

Botox for men is performed in the comfort of our office, by a highly skilled and experienced injected, and typically takes 20-30 minutes. The neurotoxin is injected with an ultra-fine needle and administered as a series of small injections.

How Long Does Botox for Men Last?

After undergoing Botox injections, patients can enjoy smoother skin and a more refreshed appearance for three-to-four months. Because results are temporary, guys will need ongoing treatment to maintain Botox benefits.

Why Consider Botox for Men?

Many guys decide to undergo Botox for men because they want to combat signs of aging and revitalize their skin, but do not have the time or interest in a surgical or invasive procedure.

Botox also allows men to subtly address bothersome forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, downturned corners of the mouth, and neck bands and helps them look like well-rested versions of themselves.

This natural-looking enhancement can subsequently increase confidence and self-esteem in professional, personal, and social situations.

Best of all, Botox for men produces visible wrinkle reduction in a matter of three-to-five days, without any downtime or disruption to a patient’s work schedule or daily routine.

DERMAL FILLERS FOR MEN

Dermal Fillers for Men

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, like Restylane and Juvederm, are injected beneath the skin and bind to water to produce instant plumping and hydrating effects.

Collagen-stimulating dermal fillers, including Sculptra (poly-L-lactic acid) and Radiesse (calcium hydroxylapatite), are administered to the mid-to-deep dermis and provide immediate as well as progressive rejuvenation.

That’s because these fillers initiate an inflammatory response and promote collagen growth around the injected product.

Why Consider Fillers for Men?

Dermal fillers for men are a safe and effective way to restore volume, counteract signs of aging, soften wrinkles and lines, improve facial contours, eliminate under eye circles, and sculpt the cheeks, chin, and jawline.

Many guys appreciate the fact that fillers are nonsurgical, quick, and painless and produce instant results without any downtime.

What Can Guys Expect from the Procedure?

Most dermal filler procedures can be completed in 30-45 minutes.

Post-treatment, patients can leave the office, looking younger, trimmer, and more vibrant, and resume all normal activities right away.

How Long Do Fillers for Men Last?

Fillers for men tend to last six-to-18 months. Longevity can depend on a number of factors, including the type of product used, amount of filler administered, patient metabolic rate, and injector expertise and technique.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL FOR MEN

What Is Laser Hair Removal for Men?

Laser hair removal for men is a noninvasive procedure designed to permanently reduce unwanted hair on the face and body.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

It uses concentrated beams of light to target melanin in hair follicles and destroy the hair’s growth center. In doing so, LHR prevents future growth and causes hair to become finer, sparser, and slower-growing.

Why Consider Laser Hair Removal for Men?

There are a number of reasons to choose laser hair removal for men. To start, the treatment is noninvasive and can be completed in just 10-60 minutes, depending on size and number of targeted areas.

It also eliminates skin irritation, razor burn, and ingrown hairs and produces smoother, clearer skin. All without the discomfort and inconvenience of shaving and waxing.

What’s more, a series of laser hair removal sessions can achieve a 60-90 percent permanent reduction in hair growth.

As such, guys are able to enjoy long-lasting results and added confidence when revealing their chest, abdomen, back, or other parts of the body that had previously caused self-consciousness.

What Can Guys Expect from Laser Hair Removal?

During laser hair removal for men, a hand-held device delivers pulses of laser energy to a given treatment area. Most patients find the process to be easy and painless and say that it feels similar to a rubber band lightly snapping against the skin.

LHR doesn’t necessitate any recovery, so guys can return to work and get back to their busy lives as soon as the treatment is over.

Patients will start to notice visible hair reduction on the abdomen, back, chest, shoulders, neck, or face within 7-21 days.

How Long Does Laser Hair Removal for Men Last?

While laser hair removal for men yields permanent results, it cannot eliminate 100% of hair growth. Men are also advised to attend annual maintenance treatments to best preserve LHR effects.

The CoolTone Difference

What Is CoolTone for Men?

CoolTone for men is a non-invasive body contouring treatment created by Allergan (makers of CoolSculpting and Botox) that uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS).

CoolTone is a great option for men who are healthy and looking to strengthen their core.

The CoolTone for men treatment is FDA-cleared for improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, and development for firmer abdomen.

How Does CoolTone Work?

During a CoolTone treatment, the device applicator engages targeted muscle groups and stimulates a series of involuntary muscle contractions.

Because these contractions are far more powerful than what can be achieved through normal exercise, muscles are forced to adapt and undergo dramatic remodeling.

Consequently, muscle fibers become stronger, thicker, and firmer to sculpt and define the abs, glutes, and quads.

Why Consider CoolTone for Men?

CoolTone is an ideal solution for any man who wants to look more toned and cut, but has been unable to achieve desired muscle mass through exercise alone.

It’s also noninvasive and avoids surgery, incisions, anesthesia, and downtime. In fact, CoolTone for men is so efficient and easy that guys can undergo a 30-minute treatment over their lunchbreak and return to the office immediately after.

How Soon Will Patients See Results Following CoolTone for Men?

Most patients feel stronger and firmer following their first session of CoolTone for men. However, it can take two-to-four weeks after the last treatment to see noticeable improvement in muscle definition, tone, and contours.

A series of four treatments, spaced two-to-three days apart, is recommended for optimal outcomes.

COOLSCULPTING FOR MEN

CoolSculpting for Men

What Is CoolSculpting for Men?

CoolSculpting for men is the counterpart to CoolTone. While both devices are FDA-approved and noninvasive, CoolSculpting focuses on nonsurgical fat reduction rather than muscle building.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

During treatment, a selected CoolSculpting applicator delivers controlled cooling to pinchable fat, without affecting skin or surrounding structures.

This process selectively destroys subcutaneous fat cells, which are then gradually eliminated from the body via the lymphatic system.

Why Consider CoolSculpting for Men?

When it comes to nonsurgical fat removal, CoolSculpting is one of the most trusted, safest, and effective treatments available.

So, it’s not surprising that many guys decide to undergo CoolSculpting for men to get rid of diet and exercise resistant bulges on their abdomen, flanks (love handles), chest, chin, and back.

And unlike weight loss, CoolSculpting actually destroys fat cells and expels them from the body. Accordingly, unwanted fat is gone for good and cannot return to the treated area(s).

What Can Guys Expect from the Procedure?

CoolSculpting for men is performed in the comfort of our office and avoids incisions, anesthesia, or cutting.

Most treatments can be completed in 35 minutes. Because freezing temperatures numb the targeted area, patients don’t feel much of anything during the procedure.

How Soon Will Patients See Results Following CoolSculpting for Men?

Immediately after CoolSculpting for men, patients may note mild and temporary redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, and numbness. These effects typically resolve on their own within a matter of hours to days and shouldn’t interfere with daily functioning or activities.

Within four-to-six weeks, patients can see visible slimming and contouring in the treatment area. They are likely to find that their clothes fit and look better and that they feel more confident about their physique.

Final results are usually revealed by eight-to-12 weeks and can achieve up to a 24 percent reduction in fat.
