BOTOX® for Men
BOTOX® Cosmetic is just as helpful for men as it is for women. In fact, hundreds of thousands of Botox procedures are performed annually on men. It is effective for reducing lines and wrinkles all over the face, but the most popular areas of treatment for men are between the eyebrows and across the forehead. Men can benefit from Botox’s ability to help them look relaxed and younger, whether you want to look your best for business meetings or social purposes. Even men in their 30s and 40s can have noticeable furrows from smiling, frowning and other facial movements. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired.
Quick, safe and effective, BOTOX® reduces facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months with no downtime and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX® treatments can not only prevent these lines from deepening, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking refreshed.
Over time, our skin changes as a result of aging, sun damage and several other factors, causing wrinkles, pigmentation and scarring to develop on our faces. Many patients unhappy with these changes seek cosmetic treatments to restore their appearance and maintain a beautiful, youthful and fresh face. These nonsurgical treatments safely and effectively enhance the appearance of the skin while still allowing patients to look like themselves.
While aging and sun damage are the most common causes of unwanted skin changes, certain conditions can also negatively affect the appearance of the skin, such as:
- Poor diet
- Lack of exercise
- Hormonal changes
- Medical conditions such as acne and rosacea
There are several different treatments available to help reverse or improve facial changes and allow patients to restore a refreshed, younger-looking appearance that reflects the way they feel about themselves. Many patients choose to combine one or more rejuvenation options, or to combine their treatment with plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift or brow lift to maximize results.
Dr. Busso will recommend the most effective treatment option(s) for you after a thorough evaluation of your skin, your medical history and your goals for treatment. Choosing an experienced doctor that you trust to perform your treatments is an important factor in achieving your desired results.
Fillers such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane® and Juvéderm® Injectable Gel treat wrinkles and folds within targeted areas of the skin, while also restoring lost volume through simple, safe and effective injection treatments. Many patients choose fillers to improve the appearance of wrinkles within the nasolabial folds, crow’s feet and furrows in the brow. These injections usually last for at least four months, depending on the type of filler and the individual patient, and can be repeated to maintain results.
Microdermabrasion uses a gentle stream of tiny particles to exfoliate the outer layer of skin and produce a fresh, glowing, younger appearance with improved texture, tone and complexion. Only a small amount of skin is removed during this procedure, so all areas of the face can be effectively treated, without any risk of tissue damage. Multiple treatment sessions may be needed in order for patients to achieve the appearance they desire.
Chemical peels removed damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring and remove blemishes and pre-cancerous growths, producing healthy, glowing skin. There are three different types of chemical peels: alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol. They range in strength from mild to strong and are each designed to provide different results, depending on a patient’s skin condition.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation may involve the use of intense pulsed light (IPL), photodynamic therapy (PDT) or ablative laser resurfacing to reduce the signs of aging and improve the overall appearance of the skin. Laser treatments stimulate collagen production for improved aesthetic results. Patients often need several sessions to achieve their desired results, but this treatment can completely remove age spots and other unwanted spots on the skin. It is safer and less invasive than traditional resurfacing procedures.
Hair Removal for Men
Unwanted hair can be embarrassing for men, especially when it is abundant or growing in the wrong places. These problems most often arise in people with light skin and dark hair, although anyone can experience excessive or unwanted hair on the face or body.
There are several treatment options available for men seeking a long-term solution. Laser hair removal exposes specific areas of the body to beams of laser light that disable active hair follicles and delay or prevent re-growth. Ideal for patents with dark skin, this procedure effectively and removes unwanted hair after a series of treatment sessions. Electrolysis can also achieve permanent hair removal, and it is quick, safe and causes little discomfort. During the procedure, a tiny probe is inserted into the hair follicle, where it delivers radiofrequency energy that heats the hair matrix until it coagulates. The hair is removed after a series of weekly treatments.
