It’s one thing to be masculine. It’s another thing to look old and weathered. That’s why we have more and more male patients at Saltz Plastic Surgery/Spa Vitoria. After all, the Marlboro Man isn’t exactly the picture of manliness these days, especially since he died from lung cancer.
In October’s first scary blog, we detailed some of the treatments we offer for our Saltz Men. In this Halloween version, let’s get into some more. Obviously, these aren’t the only treatments you can get with Dr. Saltz and our team, but these are some of the most popular non-invasive treatments for our male patients.
Laser Hair Removal — Hairiness is no longer the thing it once was. The furry sexuality of Burt Reynolds in the 70s and 80s was then, not now. Many men come to Spa Vitoria to have us remove chest hair, their arm sweaters, back hair, even to lessen their facial hair. We target laser light energy down onto the unwanted hairs and the melanin in the hair shaft absorbs the light energy, which instantly converts to heat. The heat travels down the shaft into the hair follicle, damaging or destroying the follicle and precluding it from growing future hair.
BBL Hero — Broadband light (BBL) delivers a wide spectrum of light wavelengths onto sun damaged, aging skin. Our BBL Hero platform is excellent for treating a wide variety of skin problems, from age spots to skin laxity, pigmented areas to broken capillaries. And it does so without any downtime. These treatments take just 30 minutes or so.
Sylfirm X — The world’s first and only FDA-cleared Pulsed Wave and Continuous Wave Radiofrequency Microneedling device treats both skin laxity and pigmentation for the ultimate skin rejuvenation.
Dermal Fillers — We offer the full line of Juvéderm fillers for our Saltz Men. After all, men suffer the same collagen loss every year as they age that women do. This creates areas of volume loss, such as the cheeks and under the eyes. And it allows the formation of the telltale lines and creases around the mouth. We use Juvéderm for smile lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth, marionette lines from the corners of the mouth downward, parentheses lines that frame the mouth, barcode lines on the lips, and more. The Juvéderm line of hyaluronic acid fillers have different products that target different specific areas.
Botox/Dysport — Our Saltz Men also love to come in for Botox and Dysport injections into their wrinkles that have formed due to muscle contractions over time. These are frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and crow’s feet at the outside of the eyes. These are known as dynamic wrinkles and they form due to muscle contractions under the skin when we make common expressions, such as frowning. When injected, Botox and Dysport are neuromodulators that temporarily stop the muscle from contracting, so the wrinkle above it is erased. Men need more Botox/Dysport than women, but the duration of their results is equal, around 4 months.
