Male Cosmetic Treatments
At Avant Dermatology & Aesthetics, we understand what men want from cosmetic treatments. Above all men want natural looking results with safe, minimally invasive procedures and without substantial downtime to help them maintain a youthful, productive and robust appearance that is associated with youth and power. Common concerns include hair loss, the jawline, under eye hollows and the waistline.
Dr. Sheila Farhang is sensitive to the concerns of her male patients. She appreciates the difference in male aging patterns and male anatomy. She understands that appearance enhancements improve self-esteem, body image and quality of life.
The top 5 nonsurgical procedures are Botox®, Hyaluronic Acid fillers, nonsurgical fat removal, hair removal, and photo rejuvenation with IPL. Dr. Farhang is adept at using fillers to sculpt the face and jawline, a popular procedure. Another popular procedure is tattoo removal.
Fillers such as those containing hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the body, are favored for their natural looking results. They can add volume, redefine angles, and smooth lines and wrinkles to revitalize your appearance. Fillers can correct under-eye bags and dark circles, provide nonsurgical chin augmentation and nonsurgical rhinoplasty, and improve the appearance of acne scarring. Treatments are customized to your needs and the areas to be treated. Radiesse® treatment can emulate a body structure and is often used to reshape and sharpen the jawline and chin for a chiseled appearance.
Treatments for acne scarring
Acne scar treatments include minor surgical procedures, laser skin resurfacing, radiofrequency microneedling, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. Various injectable fillers can lift depressed scars and create a matrix that supports your own body’s collagen production. Fillers offers a safe, effective treatment choice with minimal to no downtime.
Botox is so popular among men that it has been referred to as Brotox! It treats frown lines, the elevens between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet). Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscle movements that cause wrinkles on the skin, relaxing and softening wrinkles and lines.
Double Chin procedures
Kybella® and CoolSculpting® are nonsurgical treatments to remove a double chin. Both options permanently destroy the fat beneath the chin to reveal a masculine jawline. Most patients experience visible results with 2-4 treatments. Liposuction is also an option to treat a double chin.
Body sculpting with minimally invasive procedures like CoolSculpting can reduce love handles, redefine your six pack with abs etching, and trim your waist. Body sculpting is customized to your needs and goals. Laser lipo can vanquish stubborn fatty deposits and man boobs.
Nonsurgical skin tightening
Advances in nonsurgical skin tightening treatments offer the opportunity to tighten and lift without the pain and expense of surgery. Favorite office procedures to treat loose, sagging skin on the lower face, jaw and neck employ radiofrequency, light therapy and/or ultrasound.
The InMode Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure for the face and body. Popular areas include the face, jawline and neck. The device couples microneedling with radiofrequency energy to remodel collagen on the face and body to improve the appearance of aging facial features. Treatments can tighten the skin, reduce fat, smooth wrinkles and rough, uneven skin texture, acne scarring and hyperpigmentation.
Nonsurgical hair restoration treatments
Radiofrequency microneedling is a treatment for hair loss used alone, with minoxidil or platelet rich plasma. Radiofrequency energy provokes the release of growth factors that stimulate hair regrowth.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments for hair loss
PRP has been shown effective to treat male pattern baldness. PRP is a concentration of platelets created from your blood that contains growth factors and stem cells that when applied to the scalp stimulates dormant hair follicles to grow hair. So long as you have hair growing, you would be a candidate.
Wrinkle and pigmentation treatments
A fractional laser produces thousands of microscopic laser beams in columns that target damaged skin cells. Bursts of laser energy eliminate damaged skin and do not damage surrounding healthy tissues. The body’s natural healing process replaces damaged skin with new skin. Treatment also stimulates production of collagen and elastin lost from aging to restore a youthful appearance. Fractional laser treatment is safe and effective to remove years of skin damage without lengthy recovery and downtime.
A Photofacial uses intense pulsed light to improve skin tone and texture. It improves acne scars and discolorations, wrinkles, sunspots and age spots. It is also helpful for active acne and Rosacea.
Laser hair removal
Hair grows in cycles. The laser kills active hair follicles. Multiple treatments are needed to kill all hair in an area. The procedure offers permanent hair reduction. It can be used anywhere on the body.
