Non-invasive treatments can provide beautiful results for both men and women, but men tend to have their own specific set of aesthetic concerns. Most men are generally interested in addressing common signs of aging while maintaining a masculine appearance. Some common concerns specifically for men are stubborn fat pockets or fine lines and wrinkles that start to appear with age. At Bay Area Plastic Surgery, double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Gray offers these four treatments and has customized them to address common cosmetic concerns for men. Separate or combined, these procedures work to create a healthier, younger appearance.
FaceTite Skin Tightening
Sagging skin around the jawline and neck can make us appear and feel older than we actually are. FaceTite uses a bipolar radiofrequency to contract the skin, providing you with tighter, more youthful-looking skin without any scars, incisions, and minimal downtime.
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Three small punctures are made on the face: one beneath the chin and two near the ears. Dr. Gray then inserts a small probe that looks like a pencil lead into the skin. Another probe that has the appearance of a coin on a stick is then moved across the face and neck, emitting RF energy which tightens the skin as it moves.
Recovery for this procedure takes only four to five days and can show 15% skin tightening immediately and nearly 40% after four months.
Fine lines and wrinkles aren’t just common concerns for women. Many men find that the first signs of aging hinder their self-confidence and keep them from doing the things they love. That is why Botox injections such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin have risen in popularity for medical spa treatments for men.
Dermal Filler Injectables
Loss of volume in the facial area is also a major factor in developing deep folds and wrinkles. That is why many men seek the benefits of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers can address the common signs of aging at a fraction of the downtime it would take for other, more invasive treatments.
There are a variety of dermal fillers from which to choose. Most contain a formulation of hyaluronic acid, a compound that your skin produces to stay hydrated, plump, and smooth. When injected into the skin, areas that have become sallow, texturized, or etched with lines will be significantly improved. Selecting the most appropriate dermal filler depends on the area to be treated and the type of treatment required.
Facial Thread Lifting
Facial thread lifting is a non-surgical “lifting” and volumizing treatment. Dr. Gray uses the Silhouette Instalift type of thread that dissolves into the skin, providing you with an immediate lift to your facial skin while at the same time diminishing the appearance of nasolabial folds, jowls, and sagging.
