Cosmetic procedures are typically thought of as something for women. But men benefit from many cosmetic treatments just the same. The team at the Center for SmartLipo and Plastic Surgery, a Philadelphia Botox provider, discusses some of the many treatments that are ideal for men.
There are many preconceptions and stereotypes around Botox. But there’s a reason why it remains one of the most popular cosmetic treatments after 15 years. Botox is ideal for helping to reduce wrinkles on your forehead, around your eyes, and between the eyebrows. Issues in these areas definitely aren’t limited to just women.
Botox works by targeting certain muscles to relax and blocking certain nerves that cause wrinkles on the face. But Botox has other functions, too. One of its other primary uses is to control excessive sweating. It can temporarily block signals from the nerves that activate your sweat glands. This is ideal for sweating that can’t be controlled by typical topical solutions like deodorant and antiperspirant.
Male pattern baldness is something that many men will suffer from in their lifetime. But early hair loss and some hair loss associated with genetics can really impact your self-esteem. Hair is a big part of the identity of any person and it can be difficult to deal with that piece of your identity fading away.
The Center for SmartLipo team has over 30 years of experience with hair restoration. We use the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method to provide the most minimally invasive option for hair restoration. It’s designed to minimize downtime and give you minimal side effects. Your hair gradually regrows over the course of up to a year.
KYBELLA™ is another injectable that’s used to target submental fat, also known as a double chin. As we age, this part tends to become more noticeable, especially if you’re fluctuating in weight as well. KYBELLA™ uses deoxycholic acid to break down fat. This is a naturally occurring substance in the body. The fat cells are rendered unable to store fat and are then gradually eliminated from the body.
EMSCULPT is designed to help get rid of unwanted fat in the midsection and buttocks. HIFEM® (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetics) is used to produce muscle contractions under the skin that are more intense than you’re capable of doing during exercise. The muscle cells build up and you gain muscle mass while getting rid of fat cells.
