Soften The Lines – But Don’t Lose The Edge

An increasing number of men are looking to fight back against the toll of aging, stress, and long work hours. They want to look their best, but most men don’t want to lose their edge. They are interested in addressing the signs of aging while still maintaining a masculine appearance.

Some common concerns for men as they age are fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, facial redness, scarring, sun damage, and even toenail fungus.

That is why the following treatments for men can be a perfect Father’s Day gift this year!


Fine lines and wrinkles aren’t just a nuisance for women. Many men find that the first signs of aging hinder their self-confidence. Botox, or “brotox”, can temporarily treat the common signs of aging in the upper face such as:

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Deep lines and wrinkles in the forehead
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows

A Botox session only takes about 15 minutes to an hour. There is no recovery time needed, and final results will be experienced in 3-7 days. The effects of Botox last anywhere from 3-6 months and can be easily maintained with repeat treatments.

Laser Rejuvenation

IPL (intense pulse light) Photofacial is a remarkable and gentle treatment for troublesome rosacea, facial vascular redness, large pores, sun damage and hyperpigmentation, as well as preventative and maintenance treatment for general signs of aging.

IPL Photofacial is a non-ablative therapy, which means that it does not harm or remove the upper layer of the skin. Instead, it focuses on deeper skin layers to promote new collagen production and small vessels such as capillaries to improve skin tone, smoothness and appearance.

Dermal Fillers

Wrinkle fillers, including Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse and Bellotero, were created to smooth out deep wrinkles, especially ones created by sun damage and the aging process – they can even be used on any indentation in your skin, such as scars.

Wrinkle fillers add support and padding to the face for a younger more youthful appearance.

Wrinkle fillers are injected underneath the skin – right underneath the wrinkle itself – and act as a physical support system for the skin. Wrinkle fillers add foundation to the skin and collagen and hold up areas that have become indented.

Laser Toenail Fungus Removal

Toenail fungus (onychomycosis) is an infection that grows beneath the nail, causing it to thicken and discolor. As the infection worsens the toenail may become brittle and even break-off. If left untreated, the surrounding skin may become inflamed or infected – making it painful to walk or to wear shoes.

It’s also particularly unsightly, hence the hiding of toes all summer long. So in addition to a potentially painful infection, it’s not uncommon for men to avoid exposing their feet at the pool or in open-toe sandals. Or to miss out on simple joys like walking barefoot through the grass.

Laser treatment is ideal for removing toenail fungus safely and effectively because it delivers light energy to gently kill the toenail fungus and fungal spores. The end result is the total clearance of all toenail fungus, so Dad can go back to enjoying his favorite pair of sandals again.
