Cosmetic Procedures for Men
Male-Specific Cosmetic Treatments
No longer the sole domain of women, men are now turning to cosmetic treatments as a way to appear more youthful, refreshed and energized. Since men have very distinct “masculine” facial features, it is important to avoid “feminization” during cosmetic procedures, and instead try to enhance the natural rugged features of the male face. Most often, it is beneficial to perform treatments over a period of time and in stages to retain specific masculine qualities, while achieving a cosmetic change.
What to expect during your initial consultation:
During the consultation, your provider will discuss your concerns and desires, and create a treatment plan specific to your needs. Cosmetic treatments can be very conservative or more assertive, depending on the final outcome you desire and the area of the face being treated.
Often, more than one treatment or therapy may by indicated to achieve your desired results. Since many patients wish to pursue facial changes gradually, your provider will work with you to develop a plan that suits your timeframe and budget.
Botox® and Dysport® for Men – not just for Wrinkles
Botox® and Dysport® are popular treatments for reducing the signs of stress and aging such as facial wrinkles and fine lines resulting in smoother and younger looking skin. The placement of Botox® and Dysport® is not only a science but also an art. Ultimately, you need to ensure that your provider is attuned to your natural features and understands how to skilfully perform the treatment to ensure a natural-looking result.
But did you know that Botox® and Dysport® are not only for wrinkles?
They also work well for excessive perspiration especially overly sweaty underarms, this is also known as hyperhidrosis. It works by blocking the signals to the sweat glands thereby safely reducing perspiration for six to eight months with no negative side effects.
Restylane® Dermal Filler for Men
Restylane® is a natural dermal filler that works to replace lost facial volume due to aging. It restores your skin to a smoother and more youthful appearance by reducing the depth and appearance of deep lines and creases, as well as improving and restoring facial volume around the eyes, cheeks, temple region and around the mouth.
Popular brand dermal fillers include Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft, Juvederm®, Voluma® and Restylane® Silk -- all dermal fillers used to enhance facial volume and contour. They contain a natural biological material called hyaluronic acid, which is present in your skin, joints and other areas of the body. Once placed, these fillers provide volume and attract water to the site, allowing the filler to feel soft and “real” to the touch.
Super MIC B Injections
The MIC Super B injection is a safe blend of B-complex vitamins and non-essential amino acids that support overall liver function, weight loss, detoxification and regulate the body’s metabolism.
Injecting vitamins directly into the blood stream has several advantages over taking traditional oral vitamins; most importantly the vitamins bypass the digestive process and are immediately absorbed into the body where they can get to work faster.
The MIC Super B injection also helps to break down fats and helps prevent build up of harmful cholesterol. Along with diet and exercise it aids in weight loss; relieving the winter blues; recovery in athletes; or those suffering from prolonged stress, anxiety, depression or immune system impairment.
