According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, men are seeking BOTOX treatments in greater numbers every year. In fact, there are over 150,000 men receiving BOTOX injections a year and is one of the top nonsurgical facial procedures for men.
For older men, one of the main reasons BOTOX is so popular is that they want to remain competitive in the workplace and hold off signs of aging for as long as they can. BOTOX reduces wrinkles, facial lines, and those unsightly eye bags that begin to form as you get older. Guys in their 20s and 30s have been getting BOTOX injections as a preventive to remain confident and sustain a youthful appearance.
For years, women have known facial fillers to be extremely effective in reversing the facial signs of early aging. Men are now jumping in and getting these procedures done, too. They are finding out how facial fillers can reduce wrinkles, enhance jawlines, and define the lower chin area with little to no downtime. It is important to work with experienced doctors, like those at Clear Lake Dermatology, that understand the facial differences of men and women and have experience working with male patients to address their most common needs, like reducing forehead wrinkles, fine lines and drooping in the mid-facial region, and the formation of jowls around the jawline.
Neck & Jawline
As men age, they often experience a change in their neck area. The contour changes in the neck region are usually due to skin laxity and excess fat deposits. A lot of times in men, this change is mild and a traditional facelift is not needed, but there is a nonsurgical option for men called FaceTite that uses radiofrequency heat and energy to tighten the skin in their face, neck, and lower jowl area. This safe, gentle procedure from InMode produces significant and long-lasting results without surgery, and there are actually no incision scars to hide.
As men age, factors like sun exposure, diet, smoking, and pollution can do a number on the skin. This is caused by the decrease of collagen in the skin. Collagen is an important protein that strengthens the skin and gives it structure and elasticity. Over time, this protein gets depleted and the skin and muscles begin to loosen, causing visible signs of facial aging, like folds, lines, and creases in the neck, jowl, and nasolabial area.
Utilizing minimally invasive radiofrequency energy, AccuTite actually melts fat under the skin, resulting in the tightening of the skin in the areas that are being treated. Many patients experience dramatic improvements to the skin in their neck and jowls without surgery or long recovery time.
Out of all the parts in the body, men seem to spend a lot of time with their hair, and when uncontrolled hair loss occurs, men will turn to almost anything to get it back. It’s not a surprise that Rogaine® and Propecia® are some of the top medications used by men, but now there is PRP hair loss treatment to consider. This is a noninvasive treatment option to help stimulate new hair growth and reverse hair loss. PRP is a quick procedure and can be done on your lunch break. It is a simple, three-step process: a normal blood draw is taken, platelets are separated in a centrifuge, and then that platelet-rich plasma from your own blood is injected just underneath the scalp to stimulate the regrowth of your own hair.
Hair loss has become quite a concern for a lot of men of all ages. Genetics is a major factor with over 95% of cases being linked to male pattern baldness. Other factors leading to hair thinning or hair loss is stress, medications, medical conditions, and/or diet, and these can all influence hair deterioration. With advances in technology and a better understanding of the hair growth cycle in men, hair restoration techniques have improved. One of these state-of-the-art new techniques is called SmartGraft, an FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique. SmartGraft is a minimally invasive procedure that safely helps restore hair.
