Five Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedures Men Choose
September 8, 2016
The Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton sees a diverse range of patients, including men who desire to enhance their appearance with the least amount of discomfort and downtime possible. Minimally invasive procedures address a range of skin concerns caused by aging and sun damage, and produce almost immediate results. Here, we discuss the top five minimally invasive procedures requested by male patients.
Men turn to Botox Cosmetic for a quick and effective fix for bothersome wrinkles and lines on the face and neck. Botox can be performed in one convenient lunchtime appointment (approximately 15 minutes), a benefit to men with busy work or parent schedules. The treatment works by temporarily freezing the muscles that contract in order to form lines and wrinkles. Many of our male patients choose to have Botox injected in the forehead to smooth out frown lines and unsightly “11” lines between the eyebrows. Botox can also be used to treat excessive sweat (hyperhidrosis) in the underarms.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal allows men to get rid of bothersome and/or embarrassing hair all in one quick, painless session. The procedure works by applying an intense, pulsating beam of laser light on the hair, damaging the hair follicles and discouraging future hair growth. The results are permanent, but repeat treatments are necessary. Laser hair removal can treat virtually any body area. Many men choose the treatment to remove unwanted hair on the chest, back and underarms.
Men are not immune to skin damage caused by aging and sun damage. Microdermabrasion is an exfoliative treatment that removes dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen growth. Following treatment, the skin appears both refreshed and rejuvenated. Microdermabrasion is used to treat acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores.
Another exfoliative treatment, chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution that removes damaged cells from the topmost layer of the skin. Once the solution peels off, a healthier, more youthful complexion is revealed. Chemical peels are popular among men who wish to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, skin pigmentation and tone on the face, hands, neck, chest and legs.
Soft Tissue Fillers
As we age, the skin produces less and less collagen, causing the skin to loosen and droop. This can have undesirable effects, including a hollowed-out appearance under the eyes and in the cheeks, and wrinkles and facial lines on the forehead and mouth areas. Soft tissue fillers are designed to fill in the face, restoring volume and smoothing out wrinkles and lines in the area.
