Eating well, working out, stylish clothing can all help present a successful well put together man. Why stop there? By feeling and looking great anyone can increase confidence. Striking masculine features like a chiseled jaw, squared chin and high cheekbones may seem like gifts the celebrities and models were just born with. Perhaps they were; perhaps they’ve had a little help. But who couldn’t use a little expert help to get their best look?

BROKEN CAPILLARIES, REDNESS, OR ROSACEA
“AS PLAIN AS THE NOSE ON YOUR FACE”
Men are more commonly affected by rosacea on the nose than women, but broken capillaries and redness in any area of the face can lead to self-consciousness and lack of confidence. Unlike women, men generally don’t cover their skin with makeup so the advantage of treating unsightly facial discolorations is tremendous.
In only 10 minutes, Intense Pulse Light can target multiple forms of redness, from pink discoloration to dilated capillaries. By heating the minute blood vessels in the area with this precisely measured light wave, the vessels close off and disappear. This may sound unsettling but since these minute vessels are superficial and insignificant there are no health risks. Some clients show results immediately, but lasting improvements are seen after three to five treatments spaced four to six weeks apart.
FACIAL WRINKLES AND SUN SPOTS
Sun exposure leads to uneven skin tone and brown spots for many… and lines and wrinkles for everyone. Due to less attention to skincare and sun protection, men often age poorly when compared to women. Having less subcutaneous fat than women at all ages, men develop deeper folds and increased wrinkles.
1540 Icon Laser improves your skin from the inside out and won’t cause any major swelling or scabbing. The laser delivers heat into the skin through evenly spaced columns, triggering microscopic exfoliation that increases skin turnover and rejuvenation. Not only does this reduce facial discolorations, it boosts the elastin and collagen production in response to the stimulation of the light waves.
To minimize any discomfort, this treatment is performed after a 15 -20-minute period of facial numbing cream. The laser itself takes only 10-15 minutes. Immediately after the service, your skin will look red for a few hours, like a sunburn, then it will feel like sandpaper for a few days (the skin exfoliating), some minor rosiness may continue as the new skin appears, but you will see results after one treatment. Four to five additional monthly treatments are recommended with annual refreshers to maintain the improvements.
SWEATY UNDERARMS OR PALMS
No one wants wet underarms showing through their t-shirts, but some people are sensitive to deodorant and antiperspirants or these common products that work for a great deal of people just aren’t effective for you. The condition is nothing to be ashamed about but showing the signs of it can be.
Neuromodulator’s like Botox and Xeomin (best known for their ability to deactivate frown muscles that lead to facial lines) are also useful to decrease or stop completely the activity of the sweat glands in unwanted areas. A topical numbing cream can be applied for about 20 minutes before the procedure to minimize any discomfort. A single treatment takes about 15 minutes and can reduce sweat for six to eight months with no negative side effects.
UNDER-EYE BAGS OR HOLLOWS
Believe it or not those eye bags and dark circles under your eyes are a result of volume loss in the outer layers of skin under and around your eyes. Juvederm and other fillers are made of a naturally occurring gel-like material, that your body already produces- but not always enough of. These products can be gently and artistically injected under the skin to bring back the youthful smoothness in less than 15 minutes. You can see the difference immediately after the procedure, peeking in appearance after 1 month? Over time it is gradually and safely absorbed in the surrounding tissues, therefore every 6 months to a year, the process needs to be repeated to “top off the tank”. These fillers can also be used to define a sagging jaw line, and/or reduce “parenthesis” and “marionette lines” around the mouth.
