As a society, the concern for beauty and appearance has typically been associated with women. However, men also are looking for ways to improve their appearance. A new era has arrived. Gone are the days of being like The Terminator and Rambo. Today, the shift has leaned toward looking more like Beckham! Men are wanting to look younger and feel more attractive without sacrificing their masculinity.
The most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure for men is Botox, or “Bro-Tox” as it is commonly being called when referring to men. Botox is great for men because it’s quick, effective and has no downtime. Botox is primarily used to reduce visible signs of aging by temporarily relaxing key facial muscles that cause deep wrinkles such as frown lines between the brows, forehead lines and crow’s feet. Botox also can be used to stop excess underarm sweating and relieve migraines.
Laser hair reduction is a non-invasive procedure to remove unwanted hair or to thin out excessive hair growth. The most common areas treated are shoulders, back, chest, stomach and neck hair that tends to grow out and become more noticeable with age. Excess hair in men can be caused by high testosterone levels but can also be due to genetics and other factors. Laser hair reduction works by treating the hair follicles with a laser or light energy. This procedure requires six to 10 sessions for optimal results.
Wrinkles, volume loss and sagging skin are age-related changes that many are concerned with. Dermal fillers can add volume in all the right places to achieve a more youthful and confident appearance. Areas commonly treated are the nasolabial folds — the creases on the sides of the mouth that extend upward toward the nose, cheek volume loss and sunken or hollowness under the eyes. Most dermal fillers have a temporary effect, lasting four months to two years, which is optimal as the facial features and shape continues to change with time.
SculpSure is a non-surgical, body-contouring procedure. Like many similar treatments, SculpSure is designed to target fat cells in troublesome areas. Even with diet and exercise, most people have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose. SculpSure’s body contouring technology is able to target and can destroy the targeted fat cells safely in just 25 minutes without affecting the skin’s surface. There is no recovery time following treatment, so you can resume your daily activities immediately.
