It used to be that men shied away from aesthetic procedures such as Botox. Wrinkles were almost deemed manly! Those days are over. Today men, especially if they’re over 35 or 40, feel they need to look their best to compete with younger counterparts at work. Plus, there’s simply an overall trend to present a healthier countenance to the public.
Here are our favorite procedures for men at Spa Vitoria.
You may have heard of this revolutionary, non-invasive fat-freezing procedure. And, men, your fat responds to it in the same way as the unwanted fat on a woman. You have those stubborn fat pockets on your abdomen and waist that would be perfect for Coolsculpting.
You may think that shaving every day already acts to remove the old dead skin layer on the top of your epidermis. And that is true — where you shave. But what of the rest of your face? Microdermabrasion uses micro crystals to provide light abrasion of the surface of your face.
Laser hair removal
The laser wavelength is set to the color of your hair, where that light energy is converted into heat and travels down the hair shaft into the follicle beneath. There the laser energy damages the follicle and stops it from growing hair. Where would you like to get rid of some hair? Your back? Shoulders?
This new treatment uses deoxycholic acid (whose job in the body is to break down fat) and directly injects it into the area under your chin where you have, ahem, a double chin. The product is called Kybella and the results are dramatic.
Crow’s feet? Yep, you have them. Forehead lines? Uh huh. These wrinkles are formed by muscle contractions under the skin when we perform repetitive actions such as squinting or frowning. Botox blocks the muscles from contracting, eliminating or vastly reducing the appearance of the wrinkles.
This laser treatment doesn’t damage the skin surface (epidermis), instead sending heat into the dermis layer below. This heat stimulates the production of new collagen (a protein responsible for the skin’s support structure) to improve the appearance of fine wrinkles, uneven texture, and splotchy areas.
This laser penetrates the surface of the skin, targeting things like spider veins, sun spots, and wrinkles. Whether damaging and closing off a vein, targeting the pigmentation of an age spot, or triggering new collage production, our YAG laser is very useful for many issues with your skin.
If you don’t want to go through the more involved process of laser hair removal, we can wax away your unwanted hair. It’s fast and easy.
