Reverse the Signs of Aging
Many men worry about getting older. No matter who you are, it’s difficult not to judge yourself when you look in the mirror. Looking and feeling young can do wonders for your self-confidence. Men often face a lot of pressure to look younger in a highly competitive job market. An older, dour appearance can negatively affect chances of getting a job.
A growing number of men are turning to cosmetic treatments to help them achieve a younger appearance. In fact, the number of men receiving cosmetic treatments has gone up by 325% since 1997.
Botox Treatments for Men
Botox is the number one cosmetic treatment men are visiting the Chevy Chase Cosmetic Center for. Botox is also the most common cosmetic procedure available today and popular because it’s a quick, easy and an effective treatment to soften facial lines and wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic is in an injectable treatment and works by paralyzing the muscles underneath the wrinkles and lines, effectively smoothing out these areas. Both men and women who wish to look like they did a few years back choose Botox to achieve a more youthful, fresh appearance.
Non-Invasive Botox Cosmetic Treatment
Botox Cosmetic is administered in our dermatology offices by board-certified dermatologists and physician assistants. An ultra-fine needle is used to inject Botox into areas affected by the lines and wrinkles. Optimal results can be seen in as little as three to seven days. The most common areas treated include the frown lines between the eyebrows, the horizontal frown lines on the forehead, and the crow’s feet around the eyes. Botox treatments temporarily reverse the signs of aging for three to four months. Results tend to last longer with repeated treatments.
Most men seeking cosmetic treatments want little to no downtime. Botox injections are quick and relatively painless. Mild puffiness may occur in the injection sites immediately after treatment, but typically resolves within an hour. Most men return to their normal activities immediately following treatment. We advise our patients to keep their head level and avoid exercise and alcohol up until five hours post treatment.
Benefits of Ultherapy for Men
Ultherapy isn’t just for women. Many men suffer from “turkey neck” or “tech neck” from looking down at their computer and phone all day and want a non-invasive solution. Ultherapy is an ultrasound treatment for counteracting the effects of time and gravity on your face. It is a 1-2 hour treatment that uses your body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually restore memory to the skin and underlying tissue. Ultherapy actually helps your tissue begin to reproduce collagen.
With a minimal time commitment for this non-surgical procedure and no down time, Ultherapy is an ideal choice for busy men on the go looking to tighten their skin around their neck, chin, and brow.
