It’s a common misconception that New Image and other laser skin centers are for women only. But the fact is, there are multiple treatments options that we see men coming to New Image for, depending on their concerns or desires. Here are the top five treatments men are getting:
Botox is the #1 aesthetic treatment in the world due to its ease to receive and effectiveness in reducing dynamic lines and wrinkles—and this is a common treatment done by men. Of course, the results are visible in a relatively short time (the average is 3-5 days) and bring a softening if not a total reduction of lines on the forehead and around the eyes. So guys, if you want to look less concerned or even mad this is for you!
A Broadband Light Treatment (BBL) is a great treatment to correct visible reds/small vessels and/or sun damage spots (brownies) on the face. This treatment, when done in a Forever Young protocol as a maintenance treatment after correction has been attained, has been studied over a nine-year timeframe at Stanford University and was found to bring the skin to a younger state at the cellular level. Who doesn’t want to keep their appearance as young as possible!?
Halo Pro is the newest innovation in skin rejuvenation. It involves a laser that removes damaged outer layers of skin as well as creating channels into the dermal layer of the skin to stimulate collagen development (think healthy thickening of the skin). It also reduces damaged intracellular debris allowing the skin to be brighter and smoother! If your facial skin is not only discolored but rough, this treatment can help!
A hyaluronic acid product in the form of a gel-like substance that is injected into areas of volume loss on the face. Often used in the cheek area to replenish deficits or sunken areas, it can be used in other areas of the face as well. Unlike most other treatments, this one shows results immediately with final smoothing over a 3-4 day time frame.
Many people would like to “sculpt” their body if it was possible. Now it is! Coolsculpting is the #1 fat reducing treatment in the country for reducing pockets of fat that don’t want to change (even with diet and exercise). The optimal candidate should be within 30 pounds of their ideal weight—it is not a weight loss treatment but can be done while on a weight loss plan if the loss of some layers will encourage you to push on in your weight loss goals. Think: love handles and even helping to find your six pack back! (Of course, if you are serious about that six pack you need to utilize the gym as well! lol)
So guys, don’t let the ladies have all the fun! If your rough and rugged skin needs a little T.L.C, set up a consultation to discuss any questions you may have about what “bugs” you! Dr. Madsen and I will explain and suggest realistic treatments for your concerns.
