Women aren’t alone in their desire to look their best and age gracefully. Men recognize the benefits of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures that reduce the appearance of fine lines, shrink a double chin, and freshen up tired-looking skin.
At Aesthetic Surgery Center, the staff offers several treatments that can make men feel and look their best without leaving them feeling like they’ve had “work” done. Consider one of these five popular options.
You’ve undoubtedly heard of Botox, the injectable toxin that interferes with a muscle’s ability to contract, thus decreasing movement that causes lines and wrinkles to etch into your face. It’s injected using super-fine needles into the muscle just under the skin, especially those that make you squint, frown, or raise your eyebrows excessively.
Botox doesn’t make it look like you’ve had work done, either. It’s simply a way to appear fresher and younger, especially for men who are baby boomers. It’s an FDA-approved, safe, quick, and effective way to boost your appearance.
Chemical peels are a fast way for men to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, get rid of ingrown hairs, make brown spots disappear, shrink large pores, and smooth rough skin. A professional peel contains alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), retinol and trichloroacetic acid (TCA) that loosen dead surface skin cells, revealing new, healthy skin cells beneath.
A chemical peel doesn’t take a long time and involves no injections. You’ll see results quickly, and it doesn’t even feel like a “facial.”
Men who have a double chin due to genetics, weight gain, or the natural process of aging can now reduce it with Kybella, an FDA-approved injectable that destroys fat cells under the chin.
Reducing excess chin fat gives you more contour between your neck and head, makes ties fit comfortably, and improves your self-esteem. You’ll see permanent, optimal results in just two to four treatments.
Laser Hair Removal
Men with unwanted hair on their chest, back, or chin and face have options outside of painful waxing or time-consuming shaving. Laser energy delivered as broadband light destroys the stem cells in your hair follicles and cuts off the supply of nutrients, disabling growth.
After just a couple of treatments, you’ll notice hair grows back finer and softer. When you’ve completed six to eight treatments, spaced a month or two apart, you’ll have nearly smooth skin that you don’t have to shave, wax, or pluck to achieve.
An irregularly shaped or bumpy nose can prevent you from having the profile you desire.
A surgical nose job is a huge commitment, but nonsurgical procedures can provide symmetry so that your nostrils sit evenly and smooth bumps on top of your nose. Even if you’re considering a surgical nose job, a non-surgical one allows you to preview your results before going under the knife.
You’ll be numbed with ice and a topical anesthetic and injected with hyaluronic acid fillers. While the results aren’t permanent, they can last for up to 18 months – and may be refreshed when desired.
