Now, more than ever, men want to look younger too!  Yes, guys...Brotox (Botox® for men) is not just for the ladies. This popular treatment is also great for keeping your skin looking younger and refreshed. Women are no longer the only ones seeking anti-aging and facial rejuvenation procedures. The number of men getting Botox® injections to target facial fine lines and wrinkles continues to rise.  The social stigma attached to men getting this popular, minimally invasive treatment is not only fading, it’s just about gone. After all, men want to look their best too! So, why are more men than ever now getting Botox®?

Botox® One of the Most Popular Anti-Aging Treatments

Cosmetic procedures for men are rising nearly across the board, with Botox® leading the way.  Botox® works by blocking nerve impulses and temporarily paralyzing muscle activity targeting fine lines and wrinkles. The injections take around 15 minutes, with little to no downtime, so it is an easy procedure to schedule during a lunch break. So, what can you expect from your treatment?

  • Improved appearance of frown/furrow lines (vertical ‘11’ lines between the brow)
  • Horizontal forehead lines and creases are smoother and more relaxed
  • Improved appearance of crow's feet (the squinting lines on the outside corners of the eyes)

What’s Fueling Men’s Botox Obsession?

Like women, more and more men have a desire for a more youthful appearance, and Botox® is one of the most effective treatments to look younger without having surgery.  Many of our male patients are also interested in Botox® injections for social and professional reasons.  For many men, maintaining a more youthful appearance is crucial for those who work in highly competitive industries. Our male patients come to our office because they trust that our highly skilled doctors will give them the younger, natural look they are seeking.

Frequently Asked Questions

Patients commonly ask, “How much Botox® will I need?” This varies from person to person and each treatment is personalized. However, treatment requirements are different for men and women. Male skin has a different quality and thickness than female skin, which means that men will require larger doses of Botox® than women to get the same effect. Botox® typically lasts 3 to 6 months, and the final results are usually noticed approximately 14 days following treatment.

microneedlingIt’s no secret that as we age, we lose collagen and elasticity in our skin which is what gives our skin strength, and when it begins to disappear, wrinkles begin to appear. We want to introduce you to microneedling in Delray Beach. Think facial rejuvenation and beyond.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure. This method introduces a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen, and elastin. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling or lasers and other abrasive treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing, higher success rates, and longer lasting results.

Benefits of Microneedling

There are many benefits of collagen induction therapy, including reducing the appearance of wrinkles and making your fine lines less noticeable.  It also helps hydrate the skin and makes it firmer, improving your skin’s texture. But there are some more plusses that you may not be aware of, that is, until now.

#1: Targets Scars

Collagen therapy is a great treatment for scars, including acne scars. Studies show that collagen induction therapy is effective in treating these scars. It also works well for treating surgery scars.

#2: Targets Pores & Blackheads

Many people have blackheads or enlarged pores on the face. Those pores can become clogged with dirt and sebum. Did you know that collagen induction therapy will make your pores smaller? Collagen induction therapy actually minimizes pore size and is a great treatment for blackheads, leaving you smoother skin.

#3 Targets Pigmentation

Many of us have experienced sun damage which can lead to sunspots. Collagen therapy can help reverse sun damage, as well as targeting age spots, dark spots, brown spots, and other pigmentation issues.

#4 Targets Stretch Marks

Did you know that it also addresses stretch marks? Whether you've developed stretch marks after giving birth or from weight issues, microneedling can minimize the appearance of those unwanted stretch marks.  

#5 Enhances Product Absorption

Have you ever noticed that after putting on a facial creamer, it seems to just sit there on top of your skin?  Collagen therapy can help enhance the absorption of your skin care products.

Number of Treatments and Results

As you can see, microneedling addresses many different skin concerns. The length of time in which you can expect to see results, along with the number of treatments you will need, depends on the skin issue being targeted, and the severity of your skin condition. We can discuss this in further detail when you come in for your consultation.

laser hair removal in delray beachIsn’t it about time you stop shaving, plucking, waxing, or threading unwanted hair from your body? Consider saving your precious time and money, and step into the light - the world of laser hair removal. It’s no wonder the American Society of Plastic Surgeons listed laser hair removal among the top five cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures performed in 2017. It’s safe and it works. Laser hair removal is the best way to remove unwanted hair for many reasons, which we’re about to reveal to you.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

But first, an explanation of how it works. Laser hair removal treatment involves using a concentrated beam of light (laser light), which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. This destroys hair follicles enough to inhibit future hair growth. We use Sciton™ lasers, which incorporate the latest advancements in cosmetic laser technology. This type of laser produces multiple bursts to gently remove unwanted hair instead of all at once. This also makes it possible to treat various areas of the body – both big and small. Plus, it’s safe for all skin types and tones, including tanned skin tones. There are many reasons for you to consider coming to Delray Beach for hair laser removal. 

Reason #1: Reduces Hair Growth

If you’re looking for the most effective way to reduce hair growth, laser hair removal fits the bill. It will drastically reduce your hair growth and thanks to new technology, nearly all skin tones/ hair colors can enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal. Most studies show an 80 percent hair growth reduction. Another plus – you don’t have to worry about annoying ingrown hairs.

Reason #2: Fast Treatments

Laser hair removal treatments don’t take very long at all.  The length of time will vary, depending on the target areas. Obviously, removing hair from the back will take longer than removing it from the upper lip.

Reason #3: Minimal Side Effects & No Downtime

While side effects from laser hair removal are minimal and rare, you may experience some redness or swelling at the site. These symptoms typically go away within several hours. There’s no downtime with our laser hair removal, and you can immediately resume your normal activities. It’s the most comfortable laser hair removal treatment on the market.

Reason #4: Works on Many Areas of the Body

Another benefit of laser hair removal is its versatility. It works on various areas of the body. Some of the most common areas include:

  • Face (upper lip, chin)
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Back
  • Neck  
  • Shoulders
  • Chest  

Reason #5: Long-Lasting Results

How long does hair removal last?” is an important question to ask.  Results will vary from person to person and are dependent on skin tone, hair type, hair color, and of course the area of the body being treated. But it's typically effective for several months to several years. And if or when your hair grows back, it'll come in much thinner and lighter.

Reason #6: Cost Effective

Think about how much money you normally spend, or the time you allocate for other hair-removal methods. That can easily add up.  Depending on the area being targeted, it normally takes 4 to 6 treatments to be effective, and again, results are long-lasting, all of which saves you time and money.

juvedermWe all know the negative effects that aging can have on our skin – fine lines and wrinkles, and creases and folds on various areas of our face. Now you will find out about one of the best minimally-invasive ways to target those unwanted signs of aging. The popular Juvéderm family of soft-tissue injectables is an excellent choice and is one of the best face fillers on the market.

What is Juvéderm?

One of those popular treatments is the versatile Juvéderm, a dermal-filler. This soft, gel-like injectable is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance naturally found in the body that helps the skin maintain hydration. The Juvéderm family of dermal fillers soften facial creases and wrinkles and enhance shallow contours. They can also be used to plump thin lips.

Target Smile Lines with Juvéderm VOLLURE XC

Juvéderm VOLLURE XC is the first and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the Food and Drug and Administration (FDA) to target moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Nasolabial folds are commonly known as smile lines or laugh lines. You may also hear them referred to as “parentheses” - lines surrounding the mouth. It also targets Marionette lines, which run from the corners of the mouth, downward.  Juvéderm VOLLURE XC is a great way to get rid of wrinkles and is long-lasting with results for up to 18 months.

Try Juvéderm VOLBELLA® for Luscious Lips

The desire to have luscious-looking, plump lips are popular. Plump lips are much more than just a trend, they’re here to stay. And if you don’t have them, but want them, try Juvéderm VOLBELLA ®. This soft, smooth gel adds fullness to the lips and softens the appearance of lines around the lips. But it also benefits eyes as well by adding fullness under them.

When Will I See Results from Juvéderm?

You will see some results immediately. But, because there may be some swelling, you may not see the full effect until the swelling has diminished within a few weeks after treatment.

How Long Do the Results Last from Juvéderm?

If you want long-lasting results, you’ve found them. While results vary person to person and will depend on the area of your face we targeted in the procedure, Juvéderm can last from six months to two years.

Regain Your Youthful Appearance with Anti-Aging Treatments

In addition to Juvéderm, we also offer the most advanced technology in anti-aging treatments such as Botox, Xeomin, Kybella, Restylane, Perlane, and Radiesse. We also offer other non-surgical, anti-aging treatments including laser skin rejuvenation to firm and tighten skin, laser hair removal, laser skin resurfacing, and facials (including the popular HydraFacial). We also carry a full complement of cosmetic products to enhance your beauty.
