According to Top Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. Renato Calabria, neglecting to address the tone and texture of a man’s skin is a common mistake made by both plastic surgeons and male patients. Facelifts and other facial rejuvenation procedures are important tools to address a male aging face, but often the texture of a man’s skin is a dead give away of his age. In fact, sometimes the result of plastic surgery can make a male patient look unnatural, like an old man with skin that has been pulled too tight!
Dr. Calabria believes that both the texture and tone of a man’s skin should always be addressed. There are several factors that affect aging skin, such as smoking, dehydration, diet, exercise, genetics, sun exposure, etc. Therefore, it is important to optimize these factors in order to improve the skin’s texture and tone.
One of the most effective ways to improve the skin’s tone and texture is the use of Pulsed Light Laser (Fotofacial Laser). This is particularly effective in case of hyper pigmentation, rosacea, redness, flushing, sun damage, increased pores size, and age spots. It is also ideal for male patients because the treatment is non-invasive and the down time is limited, from just a few hours to a few days. Fotofacial or pulsed light lasers are done under local anesthesia and require a series of 4-5 treatments every 3 weeks. With this treatment, men can expect a gradual, but dramatic improvement in the tone and texture of their skin.
Dr. Calabria recommends Fotofacial treatments on all his facelift patients and male patients seeking facial rejuvenation. In addition, the pulsed light laser is very effective for improving the redness of scars after facelifts and shortens the postoperative recovery time.
Fotofacial laser treatment is ideal for men wanting to look fresher. Little to no down time and a gradual, but dramatic improvement in the tone and texture of the skin are key factors that make this an ideal treatment for the male plastic surgery patient.
