This is a great procedure that is super-popular for men because they get real results and don’t have to take any time off. Furrowed brows, wrinkled foreheads and crow’s feet can all be corrected in about ten minutes. Removing the lines in these areas can go a long way toward a younger and more relaxed look at work.
Radiesse and Juvederm are becoming as popular as Botox for men because of the areas that can be treated with little or no recovery time. Men seem to get especially good results from the new Under Eye Contouring with Fillers because they often are troubled with more pronounced hollows under the eyes. Because hyaluronic acid fillers are so easy to mold, they are used for creases in the ears, chin area and acne scars. The fold from the nose to the side of the mouth (nasolabial fold) can be filled in with Juvederm or Radiesse as well as the lines on the forehead and frown area. This is most effective when used in conjunction with Botox cosmetic to eliminate the movements that cause these lines.
Our advanced Cutera Laser uses a sophisticated light energy source for permanent hair reduction in all skin types. The light is absorbed by the pigment in your hair, which effectively disables the hair follicle. It’s CoolGlide technology is considered the gold standard in the laser industry because of its long history of safety and effectiveness on all skin types—even on tanned skin, which is a nice benefit to our patients in the summer months. We can treat not only coarse hair but fine hair as well. It is permanent, safe and effective. The CoolGlide can remove hair from the face or body; for example, the arms, underarms, legs, backs, and even particularly sensitive areas like the upper lip.
It is sometimes hard to tell how many treatments you might need in advance. Hair develops in phases and we can only treat hair in its active, visible stage. Therefore, the number of treatments depends on how quickly the untreated hairs appear. For significant clearance, most patients require a course of four to six treatments, which are spaced at least six to eight weeks apart.
Patients will feel a series of short snaps, somewhat like a rubber band snapping, but no local anesthesia or pain medication is necessary. Sensitivity varies from person to person, and we have a topical blocker that works quite well. Treatment times vary depending, of course, on the size of the area, but it typically takes 60 minutes to treat the upper and lower legs and 45 minutes for a man’s back. Underarms for women are fast.
The beauty of the CoolGlide technology is that it effectively destroys the hair itself without harming the surrounding skin. You may be a little red afterward, but that typically goes away in a matter of hours. We ask that you shave beforehand since the treatment is targeting the hair follicle itself – not just hair.
Patients can expect an 85 percent reduction in hair after four to six treatments. As we age our hair patterns change, so this does not prevent the possibility of new hair growth over the years.
Men’s spa services are one of the fastest growing services in spa communities. We recognize both men’s need for spa services, as well as many men’s hesitation to walk into a salon full of women.
However, more and more men are choosing to go to a spa to help take care of their skin once they realize that better face care can mean less ingrown hairs, blackheads and other blemishes. We cater to men, being careful to only use products with masculine fragrances or those that are fragrance-free.
