Men’s Facial Rejuvenation
The archetypical “rugged man” popularized in movies and TV doesn’t worry about wrinkles or what the skin on his face looks like.
But in real life, more men than ever are turning to innovative methods to look younger and more rejuvenated.
Our Medspa offers a wide variety of treatments that can be specially customized for men’s facial rejuvenation, ranging from tightening jowls to erasing deep wrinkles.
Injectable fillers have fast become a cosmetic standard. Millions of people get injectables every year, a number that’s only expected to rise in the future.
Injectables are easy to administer, tolerated well by nearly all patients, and typically provide immediate, visible results.
Of the nearly 2.7 million injectables administered last year, over 200,000 were given to men, according to recent statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
Men typically use injectables to:
- Reduce wrinkles and folds
- Fill in hollow areas
- Plump thinning lips
- Improve skin tone and texture
So popular it’s simply known as “Botox,” this injectable filler uses a naturally derived toxin to freeze muscles into place, preventing the formation of wrinkles and creases caused by facial expressions.
ASAPS ranked BOTOX® Cosmetic as the number one non-surgical procedure sought by men in 2018.
For men, BOTOX® Cosmetic—jokingly referred to as “Brotox”—helps smooth over the deep lines that appear on the forehead and around the eyes.
This filler uses hyaluronic acid to rejuvenate skin cells, smooth wrinkles, and restore lost volume. The Medspa offers three JUVÉDERM® fillers:
JUVÉDERM® XC: Used to smooth the lines around the nose and mouth area.
JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC: Adds volume to sunken cheeks and enhances facial contours.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA®: Used to rejuvenate and smooth wrinkles in lips.
Also made with hyaluronic acid, Restylane® helps restore the eye area by getting rid of sunken areas, dark bags, or hollows under the eyes.
Most treatments take between 15 and 30 minutes to complete. There’s little to no downtime with these injectables, making them an attractive option for men on the go.
BOTOX® Cosmetic results tend to last about three to four months, while the effects of JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® can last a year or longer.
Laser and Other Facial Treatments
Laser rejuvenation and other non-surgical rejuvenation methods are designed to improve skin tone and texture without having to resort to more invasive measures.
For men, who typically want to avoid an overdone look, laser and other minimally invasive treatments can help remove wrinkles and tighten facial contours.
Halo Laser Treatments
The Halo™ laser is designed to boost the skin’s natural collagen growth, leading to improved skin texture over time.
It uses a dual-wavelength laser to powerfully penetrate the skin. This process removes wrinkles, scars, and other imperfections.
Most treatment sessions take between 30 minutes to an hour to complete, though repeated sessions may be needed to achieve the patient’s ideal outcome.
A chemical peel uses a special chemical solution that removes the thin outer layers of the skin. Our Medspa uses a trichloroacetic acid (TCA) solution. The outer layer of skin peels off, revealing new and smoother skin.
Chemical peels are incredibly effective at removing scars and blemishes, correcting hyperpigmentation, and smoothing wrinkles. It can also be used on the neck and other body areas.
Treatments are quickly completed, though the application of the chemical may burn. There is a downtime of about a week after a chemical peel as the outer layers of skin peel off in that time.
The new skin that emerges is noticeably smoother and radiant.
The HydraFacial® MD takes an innovative approach to the traditional facial by using a special suction and hydration process, which cleans pores while simultaneously hydrating skin.
The treated skin is then drenched in antioxidant-rich serums that leave skin glowing.
HydraFacial® MD treatments can be completed in as little as 30 minutes and are useful for nearly any skin type and texture.
