Contrary to the stereotype, cosmetic dermatology is not just for women. Men can also benefit from cosmetic procedures in Santa Monica, CA that will help them look young and well-rested – without making it obvious that they had the treatment in the first place. Consider the following examples of dermatology for men.
Many of the same treatments that women use in Santa Monica, CA work just as well on men; we may have to tweak some treatments to accommodate a man’s facial hair and/or thicker skin. Men may choose from BOTOX®, Dysport®, or XEOMIN® to treat dynamic wrinkles, especially those in the forehead and other areas.
Men may also choose from a variety of dermal fillers that fill in lines and wrinkles. Different fillers work best for different parts of the face. Some fillers also stimulate the production of collagen, and their effects tend to last longer.
The same neuromodulators used to treat wrinkles can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. They work by blocking the neurotransmitters that travel between nerves and sweat glands. Blocking the neurotransmitter keeps it from activating the sweat gland, and the patient stops sweating.
MiraDry® treatments can help men with excessive underarm sweat. The doctor will use a handheld device that emits energy that destroys the sweat glands. Most patients need only two treatments to see a 90 percent reduction in sweat production.
Many men find that no matter how well they eat or how hard they exercise, their body still has some fatty areas that won’t go away. Body contouring describes a group of procedures done to improve the shape of a man’s body. It can include surgical procedures like the various types of liposuction and non-surgical procedures like CoolSculpting®.
