Common Male Procedures at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta

Maintaining healthy skin is no longer just a women’s priority, men have started to take a close look at their own facial and skin care rejuvenation needs.  According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, some of the most popular male cosmetic procedures in 2011 included Botox®, Laser hair removal, chemical peel, microdermabrasion and soft tissue fillers. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta offers all of these procedures and frequently treats men for multiple conditions.

Botox® and Dysport® are minimally invasive treatments that reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Many of our male patients complain about crow’s feet and lines on their foreheads. Injections with Botox® or Dysport ® relax muscles in the treatment area to smooth out these lines.  Patients enjoy the short procedure time and no downtime of injectables. Results typically last between four and seven months.

Laser hair removal is another popular treatment for men who have unwanted hair on their backs, chests, arms, legs and/or face. Laser hair removal is a long lasting solution for any hairy areas. Similar to other procedures, patients benefit from short treatment times and minimal downtime. However, as with any laser procedure, it’s important for patients to avoid sun exposure during treatment to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation. Oftentimes we have male patients complain about underarm sweat and unsightly stains on their shirts. The miraDry® system is the newest non-invasive technology to effectively reduce underarm sweat. This FDA approved technology uses electromagnetic energy to target and destroy sweat glands.

Our specialty center, Skin Medics™ Medical Spa, offer chemical peels to restore and refresh facial skin. Our providers use a specific combination of chemical solutions tailored to your unique skin type and needs. Chemical peels are a great solution for many skin conditions including acne, oily skin, dry skin, and wrinkles. Also within our Skin Medics™ Medical Spa, microdermabrasion treatments are available. Microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin while stimulating circulation and collagen production. Our qualified and experienced aestheticians will discuss what treatment would be most beneficial for your skin’s needs.  These topical skin care treatments are a great option for men with minimal signs of aging who do not necessarily need facial injectables for rejuvenation.

Soft tissue fillers such as Restylane®, Juvéderm® and Sculptra® can effectively fill in facial wrinkles and restore lost facial volume. These FDA approved fillers are great to replump facial volume lost with age and provide a more youthful appearance.  Additionally facial fillers may also be used as an ancillary treatment for facial scar reduction.

Other procedures men often seek include liposuction, blepharoplasty, and laser skin resurfacing. If you are interested in learning more about these treatments please contact our office today.  Don’t forget to connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google + for the latest skincare news and tips.
