Non-Surgical Cosmetic Options for Men

The influx of innovative technology, products, and techniques on the market has led to a surge in non-surgical cosmetic procedures, with men counting as the most rapidly growing segment of patients. In a recent survey done by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), 31% of men surveyed said they are “extremely likely” to consider a cosmetic procedure. No longer created exclusively for women, non-surgical cosmetic procedures deliver natural, long-lasting results that can be achieved in the office, with very little downtime. Here’s just a few of the “man-tenance” treatments we offer for men.

PRP for hair loss

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, has many applications for skin rejuvenation, but recently it has been getting a lot of attention for treating male pattern baldness. It works by first drawing a small vial of your own blood, which we then concentrate and purify. Using a very tiny needle, the resulting plasma is injected into your scalp. The platelets in the plasma contain growth factors which stimulate the hair follicles to grow.

IPL for uneven skin tone

Using precisely calibrated lightwaves that target blood vessels and melanin (brown pigment in the skin), intense-pulsed light (IPL) can improve the appearance of broken capillaries, redness, rosacea, and dark spots. Unlike laser treatments, the side-effects are minimal: there is only minor redness immediately after the procedure, and no downtime.

Botox for hyperhidrosis

Already a well-known anti-wrinkle weapon, Botox is effective against hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. We inject tiny amounts of Botox just underneath the skin, blocking nerve signals that cause your glands to sweat. A single treatment can reduce sweat for 4 – 12 months.

Kybella for double chin

If you always feel uncomfortable with shirt collars and ties, or if you’re bothered by that turkey neck, then Kybella may be a great option. Kybella is made of synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps with the breakdown and absorption of fat. We inject Kybella directly into the fat underneath the chin, destroying the fat cells forever. 

There are major differences in male vs female anatomy that must be kept in mind. For example, men tend to have thicker, oilier skin, with more superficial blood vessels. Because of this, special attention to technique is essential. The surgeons and aestheticians of Del Rey Aesthetics are trained specifically in men’s cosmetic procedures to give you a natural, not “plastic” result.
