Fighting Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles are one of the many signs of aging that differ between men and women. For women, the hands of time are most evident around the mouth, while for men wrinkles are typically deepest and most concentrated on the forehead. A physician with experience treating men for signs of aging will know how best to target these deeper lines—Dr. Humphrey shares:

“That’s why it’s important for men to pick a cosmetic dermatology provider who has expertise in a male-specific aesthetic. It is possible to be as specific and targeted with their concerns as it is with the concerns of a female patient.”

HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator and Triple Lipid Restore work in combination to smoothen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. HA5 restores the skin’s natural ability to produce hyaluronic acid — a carbohydrate that keeps skin plump and voluminous, while Triple Lipid Cream refills naturally occurring lipids and provides intense moisture to aging skin.

In recent years, as more and more men looked for a solution to signs of aging, “Brotox” began to make its way through the industry. We hesitate to call it a trend — after all, neuromodulators have been used to minimize visible wrinkles since Dr. Carruthers discovered their dermatological application in the 1980s. Perhaps the most significant impact of the Brotox evolution is a greater acceptance of dermatological practices among men. As Dr. Carruthers explains:

“Today’s man is just as inundated with selfies and other shared images as today’s woman — and they’re embracing it, as seen by the new sculpted beards and hairstyles, stylish clothing and dedication to the gym.

“With strategic facial injections of botulinum toxin neuromodulators, unwanted frown lines can soften and angry low brows can lift. Positivity of facial expression is also subtly enhanced with facial fillers which can reflate sunken cheeks, restore a man’s defined jaw line and vitality.”

As new generation enters the workforce, looking and feeling rejuvenated can have a huge impact on maintaining a competitive edge.

“Minimally invasive, no downtime treatments can enhance overall self-esteem and appearance.”
