Volbella before and afterAlthough the majority of those undergoing cosmetic treatments are women, more and more men are interested in rejuvenating and enhancing their appearance. Here we discuss the many opportunities for men to improve their appearance in order to look and feel their best. Just like women, men enjoy a natural youthful appearance that improves their confidence and self-esteem.

Skin Care

Skin care is essential for everyone, men and women alike. There are many options available, and a skin care regimen should be customized for each person. For example, some people have more oily skin while others have more dry skin and still others have combination skin. Most men prefer a simple regimen. In such cases, the basic elements include daily sunscreen use along with twice daily cleansing and moisturizing. One of the most popular products for men is the Elta MD UV Clear sunscreen. This is because it goes on easily, feels good on the skin, does not leave a thick white residue on the skin, and contains moisturizers.

Botox

Botox is one of our most popular treatments for both men and women. While some people say Botox has a bad reputation because it gives people a frozen appearance, when done correctly people do not notice that someone has had Botox. Instead, they say that the person looks rested and refreshed. Using appropriate dosing and targeting specific muscles a natural look can be achieved with a Botox treatment. In general men require higher doses of Botox than women. This is because men in general have stronger and larger muscles than women, both on the face and body. Also, the placement of the product on the forehead is usually different for men than women. This is because men usually have more flat brows whereas women prefer arched brows.

Fillers

Dermal fillers restore volume that is lost over time. Such volume loss occurs in different areas on the face and occurs in both men and women. However, it is important to understand the differences between the facial structures of men and women. Specifically, women prefer broad and high cheek bones and a narrow lower face. Men, on the other hand, usually have more volume in the lower face. The photograph here shows a gentleman who received a small amount of Volbella to provide a natural, balanced appearance of the lips.

Laser Treatments

Laser treatments can address a variety of concerns on the skin including uneven color, redness, and fine lines and wrinkles. Such changes occur naturally over time and sun damage contributes to it. Depending on the concern, various lasers can be used. For example, the IPL photofacial works well for uneven color and redness, while laser skin tightening works well for loose skin, and fractional laser treatments work well for irregular texture.
