Men have slightly differing problem areas and require a different approach to non-invasive procedures. 
Below are some frequently requested areas of concern to gents. 

 

Nasolabial folds are the lines that run from the outer part of the nostril to the corner of the mouth.

These lines can be exaggerated in some men. Nasolabial lines can be softened and lifted with dermal fillers and threads.

Interestingly, men develop fewer wrinkles around the mouth and in the beard area, this is due to the number of hair follicles in the skin, causing it to be thicker than that of the ladies. 

Lip lines and deflated lips are less of a concern in the male population, but fuller lips are also being requested more frequently. 

 

 

Fat-Melting Injections:

A safe and innovative Vitamin C based treatment for stubborn pockets of fat.

Areas that can be treated include double chins, cheeks, thighs and belly rolls.  

A vitamin C derived treatment called Ceccarelli solution is injected directly into the fat pockets, this causes the body to absorb the fat over a period of about a week. This treatment is perfect for the body conscious individual who wants to look toned and has a thinner layer of belly fat. 

Fat melting is popular in the 30-45 age group who have a small amount of fat under the skin which is hiding the abdominal muscles. About 200ml (2/3 of a cool drink can) can be removed per treatment.

Unfortunately this treatment will not work at reducing the quintessential South African ‘boep’, this is due to the fact that a lot of fat in a ‘boep’ is situated around the intestines, inside the abdominal cavity.

For patients with excessive abdominal fat an exercise/eating plan will first have to be implemented, as this is not a general weight-loss solution.

 

Removal of Sun Spots, Dull Lifeless Skin, Spider Veins and Redness, Open Pores, Skin Laxity and Wrinkles.

Men have lagged behind the fairer sex when it comes to preventative skin treatments. Until recently us men have been less likely to use sunscreen and other facial products, this results in men often having more sun damaged skin. Improving the quality and elasticity of our skin can significantly improve appearance and youthfulness.

Laser rejuvenation, collagen induction therapy, peels and skin boosting injectables can all improve the appearance and texture of skin. Typically men prefer treatments with little/no downtime. A series of low intensity/no downtime procedures are usually preferred by gents who don’t want to spend their weekends recovering from procedures.

 

 

Botox® has become increasingly popular among men and the term ‘Brotox’ has even been coined. I approach Botox treatments in men differently to women to prevent feminising or frozen results.

Men are less concerned than women about facial lines. Women generally want wrinkles and lines to be totally removed, while men prefer a more natural look with softening of lines.

Brow shaping with a raised tail of the brow is important to ladies but can look odd on men.  A male brow is straighter then that of women with less of an arch. Frown muscles are bigger and more well developed in male patients, this is a great area to treat in men as it opens the eyes, can reduce squinting and even treats tension headaches. Crows feet are often more pronounced in guys, they can be softened with Botox®.

Another common application of Botox® in men is treatment of excessive underarm sweating.

Highly diluted Botox® (MesoBotox) can also be used to treat open pores and freshen up skin around the eyes and forehead without reducing facial expressions.

Common issues in gents that can be improved with Dermal Fillers include

Jawline Correction, Nasolabial folds, loss of volume in Cheeks / Cheek bones and dark hollows under eyes.

Collagen stimulating fillers like Ellanse are in my opinion, better for treating male patients for the following reasons. The filler stimulates the production of your own collagen, this means that after treatment you will see an improvement but the full effect takes 3 months.

This more gradual change is more pleasing for men who want to keep their treatments discreet.

The collagen inducing effect will gradually improve the quality of the skin. The collagen inducing fillers are longer lasting, a 2-3 year effect can be achieved which means the treatments happen less often.

 

Sclerotherapy for the treatment of varicose veins is a very popular treatment among men. 

The treatment compromises a series of small injections with a sclerosant into the veins. After treatment a bandage is worn for 3 days and an elasticised stocking for 3 weeks. Patients walk in and walk out, treatment takes 45 minutes- an hour. Laser removal of smaller spider-veins on the face can be resolved by laser. 

 

Skin lesions such as:

Skin Tags, Moles, Warts / Genital Warts etc.

Erbium YAG laser is perfect for removing skin lesions and blemishes, healing is quick and scarring minimal.
