An Aesthetic Cheat Sheet for Men

You’re aging, but that’s ok because we have you covered.  The cosmetic tools to turn back the hands of time are no longer reserved just for ladies.  The best part is that there is no reason to feel shame, you’re far from the only one.  More men are increasingly enhancing their look with lasers, needles and chemicals at record rates. Recently, research revealed that men are the fast-growing segment in the aesthetic industry.  Per the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the amount of men being treated with Botox has increased 310 percent since 2000.  A parallel growth is occurring with other noninvasive treatments such as dermal fillers and laser treatments.

We understand the importance of customizing our aesthetic treatments for you.  Top dermatologist in NYC, Michael Eidelman, M.D., advises in GQ magazine that aging in men tends to happen under the eyes and at the temples.  An arsenal of treatments such as fillers like Restylane, Juvéderm and Sculptra add volume to sunken eyes and cheeks and intense pulsed light (IPL) minimizes age spots and broken blood vessels.

“I think men are starting to realize you can get this stuff done without looking like you had it done,” says Cliff Kohler, a 38-year-old retired Air Force captain who now works in the pharmaceutical industry. “People say, ‘Oh, you look so much more rested.’ ”

If you are interested in sprucing up your appearance but not sure where to start, Here is a quick guide to give you an idea.

Lines & Wrinkles

Solution:  Injectable treatments such as Botox relax wrinkles for a smoother and rejuvenated look.

Brown Spots and Blotchy

Solution:  Intense pulsed light targets brown and red pigment associated with sun damage. The treatment causes sun spots and freckles to darken and flake off after a few days. IPL treatments also combat facial redness caused by spider veins and residual effects of acne damage.

Sagging Face

Solution:  Dermal fillers add fullness to the face, lift drooping areas and smooth out deep wrinkles.

Turkey Neck

Kybella is one of the hottest aesthetic treatments to remove submental (chin and neck fat) to achieve a slimmer, more youthful looking neck.

 Lastly, it is smart to protect your investment with regular medical skin care treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion and microneedling.  These types of treatments will keep the signs of aging at bay and keep you looking your best.
