Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center – Med Spa for Men
By Dr. Michael L. Thornton | Feb 26, 2018
When we think of aesthetic procedures, we tend to focus on women and the signs of aging. But in all of the advertising and talk of anti-aging, we forget about men – who are just as concerned with premature signs of aging and changes in skin appearance as their female counterparts. However, because most cosmetic procedures are geared toward women, it may seem that seeking out aesthetic treatments isn’t “manly,” or they worry that some treatments may make men appear too feminine.
Cosmetic Procedures Aren’t Just for Women Anymore
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over one million men underwent “minimally invasive” cosmetic procedures in 2016, compared to nearly 13 million women. Minimally invasive procedures like male facials, IPL / Photofacials, PicoSure Focus skin treatments, Laser Resurfacing, Botox, Radiesse fillers, and Juvederm dermal fillers are in-office aesthetic procedures that have quick recovery and require no anesthesia.
Medical Spa Offerings
At Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center Med Spa for Men, we offer male services – featuring treatments that will subtly rejuvenate your skin without making it appear that you had “work done.” Below are some of the options you will find in our Mansfield office:
- Botox and Xeomin for Men
You’re probably familiar with Botox and the other similar treatments that contain botulinum toxin, its active ingredient. Botox is injected into the muscles in the forehead or around the eyes to “freeze” or paralyze the muscles, thereby smoothing out forehead lines, frown lines and crows feet. Botox injections typically last between three to four months, and with consistent use, wrinkles can be maintained in a persistently relaxed state. Dr. Michael L. Thornton, a double board certified cosmetic surgeon and Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, personally performs all Botox injections to provide you with the highest level of physician-level service. Men typically require more Botox than women, because they have more muscle mass in the treatment areas than women – an important distinction when you are seeking superior results!
- Dermal Fillers and Injectables for Men
Men typically begin to see the start of aging around the nose and mouth in an area called the nasolabial fold. As men age, there are collections of changes that occur throughout the body, and the face tends to be the area that we notice the most, specifically in the nasolabial fold. At Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center Med Spa for Men, we offer a variety of options of dermal fillers. Juvederm, Radiesse, Voluma, and Belotero are just a few of the dermal fillers Dr. Michael Thornton can utilize to improve the lines and folds around your mouth and nose, giving you a smoother, younger looking face. All dermal fillers used in our office are temporary fillers and typically last 4-6 months (or longer) and Dr. Michael Thornton personally injects all dermal fillers.
- Erbium, CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing, PicoSure Focus Skin for Men
Laser skin resurfacing and PicoSure Focus Skin are procedure used to treat fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage caused by the ravages of daily life. Dr. Michael Thornton tailors these skin laser treatments to benefit a man’s skin, as men tend to have a thicker dermal layer and also show more visible signs of sun damage and discoloration than women.
- Dermapen Acne Scar Reduction and PRP for Men
The Dermapen 3 is a microneedling device used to treat certain skin conditions, including acne scars and skin texture problems. Dermapen microneedling is a procedure in which the skin is pierced by tiny micro needles using a skin pen-like device, causing the body to react by rebuilding dermal collagen. This results in an increase in the production of collagen and elastin, which are the building blocks of healthy skin. The boost of collagen helps the skin repair itself and can help lessen the appearance of scars. Optimal results are seen after several treatments and with the addition of PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and / or acne scar subcision.
- Skin Care for Men
Dr. Thornton provides individualized skin care for men that includes pharmacy compounded face creams that address sun damage, even out skin pigmentation and improve discoloration. These creams contain ingredients that are vital to the health of a man’s skin – Vitamin C, Vitamin A (Retin-A), antioxidants, and a host of other skin rejuvenating boosters. In addition, our licensed aestheticians can perform hydrofacials, intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, and chemical peels to further enhance and refresh your skin.
