4 Minute Read:
While so many people think that cosmetic treatments and plastic surgical procedures are only for women, the reality is that men are just as insecure about their bodies as women are, and just like women, men desire to make the necessary aesthetic changes to their bodies.
And that makes sense: full aesthetic surgery can be scary, what with the anesthesia, incisions, scarring, and long recovery times.
So, for men who desire improvement to the look and feel of their face and neck but aren’t ready for plastic surgery, there are many non-invasive cosmetic treatments available.
Since there are so many non-invasive treatments to choose from, this blog will look at some of the most successful ones to help you as you make your decision about your own cosmetic goals.
Why Men Choose to Have Facial Rejuvenation
In 2020 alone, over 11,000,000 non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments were performed on men.
This goes to show just how popular and effective cosmetic treatments are for men.
Whether as a result of age, lifestyle, or life events (such as losing weight), wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin begin to appear on men’s faces and necks.
Non-invasive facial rejuvenation helps men achieve a more youthful appearance while maintaining the masculine definition that men desire for their faces. Another benefit of minimally invasive and non-invasive treatments is that they require little to no downtime.
One of the most common and successful minimally invasive treatments available for both men and women are injectable treatments and dermal fillers.
Some of the most trusted names in these injectable cosmetic treatments include: BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, RADIESSE®, and Sculptra® Aesthetic.
While each of these target different areas of the face for improvement, they all help correct age-related facial concerns. These issues include the presence of wrinkles and fine lines as well as volume loss in the cheeks and under the eyes.
Injectable treatments are split between neuromodulators (like BOTOX® Cosmetic) and dermal fillers (like JUVÉDERM®). The right one for you will be discussed during your consultation.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is composed of botulinum toxin, which interrupts neurotransmissions, essentially paralyzing muscles that contract and cause wrinkles and fine lines to appear on the face. This results in a smoother, more rejuvenated facial appearance.
JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, on the other hand, are dermal fillers that are made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid holds moisture in the skin to fill in areas where the skin has begun to crease. Additionally, dermal fillers have been shown to stimulate collagen production, and this is important since collagen is responsible for the health and strength of our skin. This means that you will have long-lasting improvement to your facial skin.
RADIESSE® and Sculptra® Aesthetic are dermal fillers that do not use hyaluronic acid; however, they also promote collagen production to improve volume and smoothen specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks.
Dr. Calabria is proud to offer several different laser treatments to improve the appearance of facial skin for men.
Thermage® laser skin tightening uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to tighten the skin, which helps to correct signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. The RF technology stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin to allow the face to look and feel tighter and more defined.
Pulsed light laser (fotofacial laser), on the other hand, is used to correct pigmentation issues on facial skin, including redness, hyper pigmentation, rosacea, age spots, sunspots, and scarring.
The light energy in PLL treatments helps to improve the tone and texture of the skin, attacking these blemishes at their root so that you can feel more confident and comfortable with the way you look.
Microneedling is one of the most effective ways of rejuvenating the skin.
Essentially, the goal of microneedling is to create micro-injuries to the skin, which the body heals naturally. These micro-injuries are created with tiny needles that puncture the dermis of your skin.
Basically, this treatment jumpstarts the body into improving its skin quality. Dr. Calabria improves upon microneedling by including PRP (platelet-rich plasma). PRP uses platelets taken from blood in your body, which increase the body’s ability to heal itself.
In the end, microneedling with PRP will give you smoother, more youthful and blemish-free skin.
