How Do Lasers Tighten The Skin?
Today patients have the opportunity to erase wrinkles and tighten their facial skin without going under the knife. While fillers and injectables are widely used and typically well understood, there is another method of skin tightening that is highly effective. Laser technology has brought patients a minimally invasive treatment option for turning back the hands of time.
How do lasers work on the skin?
Laser skin tightening systems utilize an infrared light source to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface. This causes the skin to contract or tighten. Results are immediately noticeable; however, further improvement in skin tightening can be seen over the course of the following 3 months in most cases. Rest assured that laser skin tightening is safe and FDA approved for the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It improves the laxity of the skin that is commonly lost with age. It is common for patients to need more than one treatment (spaced one month apart) to achieve optimal results.
What are the benefits of lasers?
While the results do not compare to a surgical facelift, patients benefit from a procedure that requires no downtime or recovery. It is also a quick and virtually painless treatment when used with a local anesthetic. This comfort and convenience factor can outweigh the more dramatic results obtained by plastic surgery for many patients.
Who is a candidate?
Laser skin tightening is an excellent non-surgical solution for adults who have mild to moderate signs of aging, including sagging skin and wrinkles around the face and neck. It can be used for men and women of all skin types and skin tones. In general, patients between the ages of 30 and 60 benefit most. However, if you have severe skin laxity, a facelift may be more appropriate.

Male Plastic Surgery: Easing Your Fears

Male Plastic Surgery Procedures Beverly Hills CA

There is no question that male plastic surgery is on the rise. In fact, there was an 23% increase in male plastic surgery procedures from 2000 to 2014. However, there still remain many misconceptions about male plastic surgery that cause men to hesitate on pulling the trigger. Here are some common fears that men have, which also happen to be myths surrounding male plastic surgery:

Don’t men look more distinguished as they age?
It is true that our society is much more accepting of the aging facial appearance of men versus women. However, not all men look more attractive as they grow older. In fact, many men greatly benefit from male plastic surgery within their workplace, as it helps them stay competitive within a youthful marketplace. In addition, men tend to show signs of aging particularly around the eyes. Sagging brows and hooded eyelids can make men look sad, tired or even angry. This unwanted portrayal can be effectively corrected with a simple brow lift or blepharoplasty. While some men do look distinguished as they age, most men appear more tired and worn out.
What if plastic surgery makes me look feminine?
This is a common concern. However, an experienced and skilled plastic surgeon understands how to effectively address the unique signs of male aging without compromising a masculine look. In general, this involves careful consideration not to overcorrect signs of male aging such as sagging jowls and descending brows. Your male plastic surgery should be a subtle and individualized approach that rejuvenates the face without feminizing it. A mini-facelift, direct neck lift and brow lift are common procedures chosen by men.
I don’t have time to take off that much work for plastic surgery.
Today’s advancements in plastic surgery have truly changed patient experience, particularly when it comes to recovery time. Now, we use minimally invasive methods that are just as effective (if not more) and require less downtime than ever before. In fact, there are numerous cosmetic services that involve only a lunch-hour session. From mini facelifts and endoscopic brow lifts to a quick Botox treatment and more, you can gain a revitalized and attractive look without missing work.
