A common misconception is that cosmetic treatments are only for women. While it is true that women represent the majority of cosmetic treatment patients, the number of men getting these procedures is on the rise! What are the best treatments for men?
As you may know, BOTOX is a wrinkle relaxer that eases the deep lines in the face in order to achieve a more youthful appearance. For men, it is typically injected into the crow’s feet, glabella (between the eyebrows) and the forehead.

Many people think of dermal fillers and guys as incompatible, but fillers can be effective in men! For guys, fillers are usually used in the lower half of the face (smile lines, marionette lines, jowl, etc.) whereas they may be injected higher (such as the cheekbone area) in women. With men, the goal is to smooth the wrinkles and lines without losing the more firm, edgy, masculine facial form. This is achievable with fillers when done by a trained and certified physician.

Laser Hair Removal
When it comes to laser hair removal, the typical treatment area for men is the face. This is especially popular for men who frequently get ingrown hairs that become inflamed, infected and/or painful. This laser procedure permanently impairs the targeted hair follicles so that hair no longer grows. Several treatments are necessary to see the best results.
