Cosmetic Treatments for Men

At The Skin Institute of New Orleans, we customize every procedure and skin care regimen to optimize the results. In addition to the unique goals of the patient, Dr. Richard Sherman takes into account the differences in thickness, texture, oil production, and elasticity of men’s skin in order to achieve the best results with skin care services and cosmetic treatments. Skin care regimens can adjusted to the lifestyle of the patient and designed for ease of application. There are also subtle differences in face building techniques that can help achieve a youthful appearance while still maintaining a masculine aesthetic.

Since the facial anatomy of men has a few distinctive characteristics, Dr. Sherman’s approach for neurotoxin injectable treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® is slightly modified to accommodate these differences. Thicker skin and a higher concentration of collagen may delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but men are still susceptible to the same common signs of aging as women. However, men have facial muscles that are typically stronger than women’s, and therefore higher doses of neurotoxins may be needed to achieve the same rejuvenating results.

Dr. Sherman also prioritizes the patient’s aesthetic goals when designing a custom treatment plan. For example, while women usually want to enhance the arch of the eyebrow during injectable treatments, men often prefer to maintain a straighter brow line for a more masculine look. Small adjustments in the location and dosage of these cosmetic injections help ensure our male patients attain an aesthetic outcome that meets their needs and expectations.

Regarding skin care, men who have not taken precautions to protect their skin from sun damage and other environmental factors may notice the premature appearance of age spots, brown spots, or uneven skin tone and texture. Procedures such as microdermabrasion or laser treatments can revitalize the skin for a more youthful complexion. Men also commonly choose laser hair removal to permanently remove unwanted hair from the back, neck, shoulders, chest, and abdomen.
