Maintaining healthy skin is no longer just a women’s priority, men have started to take a close look at their own facial and skin care rejuvenation needs. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, some of the most popular male cosmetic procedures in 2011 included Botox®, Laser hair removal, chemical peel, microdermabrasion and soft tissue fillers. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta offers all of these procedures and frequently treats men for multiple conditions.
Botox® and Dysport® are minimally invasive treatments that reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Many of our male patients complain about crow’s feet and lines on their foreheads. Injections with Botox® or Dysport ® relax muscles in the treatment area to smooth out these lines. Patients enjoy the short procedure time and no downtime of injectables. Results typically last between four and seven months.
Laser hair removal is another popular treatment for men who have unwanted hair on their backs, chests, arms, legs and/or face. Laser hair removal is a long lasting solution for any hairy areas. Similar to other procedures, patients benefit from short treatment times and minimal downtime. However, as with any laser procedure, it’s important for patients to avoid sun exposure during treatment to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation. Oftentimes we have male patients complain about underarm sweat and unsightly stains on their shirts. The miraDry® system is the newest non-invasive technology to effectively reduce underarm sweat. This FDA approved technology uses electromagnetic energy to target and destroy sweat glands.
Our specialty center, Skin Medics™ Medical Spa, offer chemical peels to restore and refresh facial skin. Our providers use a specific combination of chemical solutions tailored to your unique skin type and needs. Chemical peels are a great solution for many skin conditions including acne, oily skin, dry skin, and wrinkles. Also within our Skin Medics™ Medical Spa, microdermabrasion treatments are available. Microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin while stimulating circulation and collagen production. Our qualified and experienced aestheticians will discuss what treatment would be most beneficial for your skin’s needs. These topical skin care treatments are a great option for men with minimal signs of aging who do not necessarily need facial injectables for rejuvenation.
Soft tissue fillers such as Restylane®, Juvéderm® and Sculptra® can effectively fill in facial wrinkles and restore lost facial volume. These FDA approved fillers are great to replump facial volume lost with age and provide a more youthful appearance. Additionally facial fillers may also be used as an ancillary treatment for facial scar reduction.
Other procedures men often seek include liposuction, blepharoplasty, and laser skin resurfacing. If you are interested in learning more about these treatments please contact our office today. Don’t forget to connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google + for the latest skincare news and tips.
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta First to Offer miraDry® For Non-Surgical Sweat Reduction
ATLANTA, GA, July 26th, 2012 –Dermatology Associates of Atlanta is the first in the Atlanta area and all of Georgia to offer the FDA approved miraDry® system for underarm sweating. Using an electromagnetic thermolysis system, miraDry, focuses thermal energy to destroy sweat glands in adults 18 and over. Unlike other sweating treatments such as Botox® injections or invasive surgical procedures, this technology is safe and effective for sweat reduction.
Appropriate for those with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) or those looking to eliminate embarrassing clothes staining and body odor, the miraDry® technology selectively targets sweat glands under the arm. Since sweat glands cannot regenerate, treatment produces long lasting results. The August 2012 issue of O, the Oprah Magazine, featured miraDry® as a promisingly effective solution for excessive underarm sweat.
The technology uses a cooling system to prevent the skin’s surface from burning and help maximize patient comfort. The device also carries the added benefit of eliminating underarm hair during the treatment. The miraDry® procedure is performed over two, hour long in-office treatments under local anesthesia, with a three month period between treatments. This procedure is non-invasive requiring little recovery time. Most patients are able to return back to their daily activities immediately after treatment.
Numerous studies have shown high rates of patient satisfaction through a single office visit. Dr. Ashley R. Curtis, of Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, is aware of other treatments available to prevent excess sweating, but is enthusiastic about the safety and effectiveness of this new treatment. She has experience with the aforementioned surgical technique and also Botox®, but finds this new treatment very appealing for patients who want a non-surgical option. She notes the high success rate and fast return to daily activities as most important to his patients.
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta miraDry® provider Mara Grosswald, PA-C also shared, “This procedure is ideal for both men and women struggling with the physical and societal implications of underarm sweating. It’s a safe treatment because your skin has numerous locations from which sweat can be emitted for cooling. It’s a straightforward, efficient answer to make underarm sweating a thing of the past.”
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta will offer the miraDry® procedure at their 5555 Peachtree Dunwoody Road NE office. To learn more about this fast, effective, and comfortable procedure please call (404) 256-4457 to schedule a consultation.
