4 Anti-Aging Solutions for Men
Women are not the only ones concerned about the passage of time today. Men are also seeking ways to turn back the clock, from minimally-invasive treatments to surgical procedures. Dr. Madnani sees numerous male patients at his Manhattan and Long Island offices, providing them with treatments designed to help them meet all of their aesthetic goals. This list represents a few of the most popular procedures requested by men at Madnani Facial Plastics.
This injectable treatment continues to be a popular choice in anti-aging today and was the top non-surgical treatment in 2015. Botox is a prescription medication that contains trace amounts of the botulinum toxin, which serves to relax facial muscles that lead to the formation of wrinkles.
Botox is commonly used on the following facial wrinkles:
• Horizontal forehead lines
• Vertical lines between the eyebrows
• Fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes
Botox can also be used to achieve a non-surgical “lift” to the brow area with strategically placed injections to create a refreshed appearance. Botox is a quick fix that offers nearly immediate results that will last 3-4 months before a touch-up treatment is needed. The injections only take a few minutes to complete and there is no downtime afterward.
This surgical procedure requires a greater commitment than Botox injections, but it also offers more dramatic longer-lasting results. Surgical facelifts can take years off the appearance with results lasting up to 10 years for some patients. Specific concerns that can be addressed with this procedure include facial creases, skin laxity, a sagging neck and jowling along the jawline. The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. Incisions are placed in the hairline or in the natural creases around the ears to minimize visible scarring afterward. Recovery is generally about 1-2 weeks.
The eyes are often one of the first areas to show the signs of aging. Skin laxity, particularly around the eyelids, can lead to a perpetually tired appearance and may even start to interfere with the line of vision if the drooping becomes significant. Eyelid surgery can reverse some of the aging effects and create a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance.
Eyelid enhancement may be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both lids at the same time. The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis and requires incisions either inside the lid or in the natural creases of the eyes where post-operative scarring will be nearly non-existent. Through the incisions, extra skin and tissue is removed to reverse sagging and open up the eyes.
The jaw is another area of the face that can show obvious signs of aging. In the past, jaw enhancement usually involved surgery and an extended recovery period. Today, injectable treatments can be used to improve the definition of the jawline and produce a more youthful facial profile.
The procedure can be used for the following:
• A rounded jawline that lacks definition
• Skin laxity along the jawline and the appearance of jowling
• A square jawline that makes you look like you have put on weight
To combat these developments, we can use a combination of dermal fillers and neuromodulators like Botox to sculpt the jawline for an enhanced facial contour. Injections only take a few minutes to complete and there is no downtime afterward.
Anti-aging treatments are available to both men and women that want to achieve a more youthful appearance and image. To learn more about these procedures, contact Madnani Facial Plastics at 212-203-8591 or 516-226-1080.
