Women may make up a large portion of dermatological patients, but wrinkles, acne, hair and skin disorders do not discriminate based on gender. Every day, more men become versed in the field of cosmetic dermatology and how aesthetic enhancements can help patients look great.
Despite the skin care industry taking a heavy focus on women, cosmetic dermatology is beneficial to everyone. Consider some of the most common procedures for men and how they might help you achieve the results you’re looking for:
Botox for Men
Botox helps men and women smooth pesky lines and wrinkles.* Men often opt for Botox between the eyebrows and across the forehead where creases are more prominent. Botox has the power to produce dramatic results. When implemented by a qualified professional, Botox looks natural and does not restrict common motor movements, despite its dated reputation. The procedure is quick and safe, and most patients experience little downtime and minimal discomfort.*
Dermal Fillers for Men
Like Botox, Restylane and Juvederm injectables help minimize wrinkles and folds on the face, neck and chest. Injectables are commonly applied in the nasolabial folds, crow’s feet, and between the eyebrows. Juvederm and Restylane last for approximately four months. Because results are temporary, men who haven’t undergone a cosmetic procedure in the past can ease into the process. If you are pleased with your results, you can use future injections to diminish wrinkles across the body.
Laser Hair Removal for Men
Men are hairy, but excessive body hair can be a shameful and embarrassing feature. Luckily, laser hair removal disables active follicles to target unsightly hairs in just a few sessions. Shaving is no longer a daily or weekly requirement after laser hair removal. Unlike with shaving or waxing, men can expect to see long-term hair loss without painful razor burn and ingrown hairs.
Consider microdermabrasion a more targeted, intense exfoliation process. The procedure is 100 percent topical, which eliminates the need for needles or knives. In men and women, microdermabrasion helps reverse the effects of sun damage, minimize the appearance of scars, and soften signs of aging.* During a microdermabrasion session, Dr. Busso uses a gentle stream of tiny particles and a vacuum to freshen tired or aging skin. Mild redness is common, but often goes away in just a few days without intervention. Typically, patients attain a more youthful glow in five to ten treatments. Results and treatment frequency largely depends on the individual, their lifestyle, and current skin issues or concerns.
Men find great value in cosmetic dermatology, even though skincare procedures might be a foreign concept at first. To book your personalized appointment with Dr. Busso and discuss how to transform your appearance for the better, call us at 305-857-0144.
