Four Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedures Men Go For
Like women, men are concerned with looking their best, which includes healthy, youthful skin. Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures offer quick and beautiful solutions to common signs of aging and damaged skin, including wrinkles, age spots and fine lines. In this blog post, Dr. Johns discusses four minimally invasive procedures requested by his male patients.
Botox has become so popular among men that it’s even garnered the nickname “Brotox.” Many of Dr. Johns’ male patients express a desire to look younger for several reasons, including to stay competitive in the job market. However, some men have also expressed hesitation in pursuing facial surgical procedures such as eyelid surgery or facelift. Botox is a great alternative to these surgical procedures and is most commonly used to treat wrinkles, fine lines and creases by temporarily paralyzing and relaxing the facial muscles underneath the skin. Botox is also an effective treatment for excessive armpit sweating, another appealing benefit for many men. Because the effects are temporary, Dr. Johns recommends several treatments to maintain results.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal offers a long-lasting solution to unwanted hair on body areas like the chest, arms, face and armpits for both men and women. The treatment works by damaging hair follicles with an intense pulsed light. For optimal results, multiple treatments are needed.
Exfoliative facial treatments used to refresh and rejuvenate skin have long been associated with women. However, in recent years more men have been choosing these treatments, including chemical peels, to achieve a younger, healthier and more attractive facial appearance. Chemical peels remove dead skin cells, simultaneously stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. This, in turn, results in clearer, younger-looking skin. Chemical peels can also treat several common skin problems, including acne scars and age spots.
Like Botox, soft tissue fillers are popular treatments used to rejuvenate the facial appearance. Soft tissue fillers like Juvederm and Restylane add volume to wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and creases that have formed over time. The results usually last between six to 12 months, thus follow-up injections are recommended.
