With the rise in importance of social media, more and more men are seeking aesthetic treatments. They want a nicer complexion, to look more youthful, and to have more confidence for both themselves and their social media presence. Once they see how simple and productive treatments are, their search for the perfect fix can begin. The dermatologists at Dermatology & Mohs Surgery Institute are here to help determine the best treatments for each candidate and provide the procedure. Botox, fillers, and laser hair removal are the most common aesthetic treatments of the year. Below you will learn about each treatment and the results you can expect to experience.
The most common aesthetic treatment for both men and women is Botox. These temporary injections can reduce wrinkles, slow down aging, and soften wrinkles in the forehead, crow’s feet, and on the lips, making you look more youthful than ever! During the procedure, Botox is injected into the specific area being treated and relaxes the muscles. After just a few minutes, treatment is over and the face becomes more relaxed in the following days, ultimately softening wrinkles and facial lines. Keep in mind the cost is $250-$500 per treatment area, per treatment. Since Botox is not permanent you will have to continue treatments for continued results.
A variety of dermal fillers are available for men based on what they are trying to achieve. Juvederm and Restylane are the two most common fillers. These are used to correct facial folds and lines that develop between your nose or the corners of your mouth. Juvederm and Restylane contain hyaluronic acid, which our bodies already produce. When injected into the treatment area the lines are reduced instantaneously and results last 6-12 months. Like Botox, fillers are a temporary fix, so it is important to keep in mind that each session costs $500 or more.
Hair-conscious men may consider having laser hair removal in certain areas. The procedure can be done virtually anywhere on the body that hair grows. Men often opt to have it done between their eyebrows, on their chest, or on their back. Whether you prefer to be clean shaven or can’t keep up with shaving/waxing, laser hair removal is a great alternative. Depending on the size of the treatment area, the process can take up to 30 minutes. The laser kills the root of the hair, making it difficult for the hair to grow back. Up to eight treatments, one every other month, are often needed. After all treatments, the hair is typically completely gone, and you may only need touch-up treatments thereafter. While the results are permanent, each treatment comes at a price. Based on the size of the treatment area, you can expect to pay $400-$500 per treatment.
