What comes to mind when you think of facial treatments? Perhaps a person with cucumbers on her eyes and cream or gel smeared from her forehead to her chin? Or maybe you picture a woman relaxing in bed, reading a beauty magazine while recovering from a nose job or facelift? Thanks to movies, TV, and other entertainment outlets, images like these surround the world of plastic surgery and non-invasive skin treatments. But the fact is that these ideas aren’t completely realistic. In New York and elsewhere in the United States, facial procedures are more popular than ever among a wide range of individuals–including men! Whether you think of yourself as more of a Phil Dunphy or more of a Ron Swanson, we have a facial treatment option for you. Read on to learn more.
If you’ve spent a lot of time in the sun or been exposed to environmental pollutants, your skin has probably suffered some damages–especially on your face. While we can’t help you go back in time and apply some extra sunscreen, we can help treat the fine lines, dark spots, or sagging you are now experiencing. In our office, we focus on what’s most important to you and develop a custom treatment plan to combat it. This could be as simple as a relaxing HydraFacial (which includes cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection) or a combination of targeted, non-invasive strategies. Either way, you can trust that you’re in expert hands.
Tired of shaving and tweezing troublesome spots on your face? If your five o’clock shadow feels impossible to keep up with or your eyebrows are out of control, laser hair removal treatments might be a life-saver. This technique provides long-lasting results without damaging your skin tissue. And the process is straightforward; we’ll apply high-energy pulses of light to your areas of concern using a handpiece that’s moved back and forth. As your hair absorbs the light and heats up, the follicles will loosen and fall out. Since results are immediate, you can get back to your normal routine the same day and be on your way to a tamed chin and cheeks in just a few sessions.
As the years pass, our skin loosens and loses its natural elasticity, and this often leads to fine lines and wrinkles. While some patients think that this only shows they have lived an exciting life and have some great stories to tell, others say that it makes them feel less confident than they used to. If wrinkles have got you worried, you have options to reduce their appearance, including skin-tightening lasers. With this technique, you’ll leave the office with a refreshed look that still appears natural and age appropriate.
I firmly believe that everyone–no matter their gender–deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin, whether they are at work, on a date, or simply riding the subway. If you are a man concerned about a skin issue, don’t hesitate to reach out and learn about your options.
