Cosmetic enhancements for men

Everything from smartlipo to Xeomin, to PRP for hair loss, these quick fixes are some of Dr. Ginsburg’s favorites.

We know you can’t swap out the face or body you’ve been born with, and worked so hard to maintain, but through cosmetic dermatology, you DO have the power to make yourself look, and feel better.

Even though your female counterparts are more likely to visit a dermatologist for cosmetic procedures, the trends have changed and more and more men are more interested in “getting rid of the love handles”, concerned more with thinning hair and rejuvenating their appearance.  We’ll break down the most sought after procedures for men, saving you the legwork.

 


MORE LOVE LESS HANDLES!

Love handles:  No matter how often you go to the gym.  No matter how strict you are on calorie intake, on thing remains unchanged….Love handles.  Don’t worry, love handles can be a thing of the past.  At Ginsburg Dermatology Center we offer smartlipo.  Smartlipo in a minimally invasive procedure where we suction the fat out of those unwanted areas.  Liposuction isn’t limited to just the love handles, the procedure can be performed on any part of the body as long as you have fat to “pinch”.

WHAT IS SMARTLIPO?

Smartlipo is a minimally invasive treatment that does something diet and exercise cannot:  Eliminate unwanted fat.  The deposit of fat in adults is somewhat genetically determined.  Most men get deposits of fat in the waist or “love handles” Liposuction is often the only means of removing fat deposits.  The procedure is performed by using a tiny cannula inserted into the skin.  A laser fiber inside the cannula delivers energy directly to fat cells causing them to melt away as liquid.  Tissues around the area is heated which stimulates the production of collagen resulting in overall tighter skin and a greatly improved contour.  Smartlipo is safer than traditional lipo because there is no need to general anesthesia.  With the small size of the cannulas and the Liquidfication of the fat, there is little trauma.

DOWNTIME?

With smartlipo there really isn’t any downtime.  You’ll be free to continue your normal activities that evening as long as it’s not jarring (i.e., running).   However; you will be in a compression garment for about a week, so depending on the type of work you do, you may want to take a day or two off from work.

DOES IT HURT?

Everybody has a different level of pain tolerance.  However; most patients need nothing more than Tylenol to make them comfortable.

COST?

Only Dr. Ginsburg can give a quote, but a good ballpark is around 5500.00

 

THINNING HAIR?

Dr. Ginsburg now offers PRP for hair loss.

WHAT’S PRP? 

PRP therapy for hair loss is a treatment that involves withdrawing a patient’s own blood, processing it so that only the enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma) remain, and injecting it into scalp. PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth. The treatment can also be combined with hair transplant surgery, micro needling, or medications such as Propecia and Minoxidil.

DOWNTIME?

There is no recovery or downtime

COST?

If you want to treat thinning hair with this method you will be out about 1500.00

AGE SPOTS OR FINE LINES?

These are our specialty!  We treat these problems with HALO.  With HALO you’ll first be photographed with our special camera that shows sun damage.  The Halo hybrid fractional laser uses a combination of wavelengths to repair the visible signs of aging, sun damage, discoloration, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone. As the Halo hand piece is rolled over the skin, one laser targets the top layer while the other targets the bottom layer. The result is a rejuvenated appearance without the downtime of more aggressive procedures.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING TREATMENT?

A qualified technician will first put a topical anesthetic on your skin roughly 30 to 60 minutes before your treatment. Once ready, the Halo hand piece is rolled over your skin, sending wavelengths to both the top and bottom layers of the tissue. Pigment from the damaged skin is brought to surface and will peel off in the first few days after treatment. The tissues targeted below the surface will continue to regenerate through the body’s natural healing process. This technology not only treats the visible damage on the surface of the skin, but the deep damage from aging and sun exposure that you can’t see.

DOES IT HURT?

With a combination of a topical anesthetic and an integrated cooling system, most people feel very little discomfort. The feeling of Halo has been described as mild heat with occasional prickling sensations. The treatment area typically feels warm for about 15 to 30 minutes after the procedure is over, but sometimes a bit longer if the treatment targeted deeper levels of the skin.

DOWNTIME?

There isn’t any downtime with this treatment, but your skin will be red for about a week.

COST?

Generally people need more than one treatment.  The cost of one Halo treatment is 750.00 or you can purchase a series of three for 1800.00

 

FROWN LINES AND CROWS FEET?

Think Brotox!  We offer Xeomin to get rid of those frown lines on your forehead and that area that resides between your eyes.  Xeomin is like Botox, but the results are quicker.

DOES IT HURT?

Not really, feels like a slight sting.  The needles to inject Xeomin are very small.

DOWNTIME? 

There is no downtime with our Xeomin treatment, but you’ll have red spots on your forehead where you were injected for a couple of hours.

COST?

You can plan on spending around 300.00 for one area

LINES AROUND THE MOUTH AND OVERALL SAGGY FACE?

We offer several injectables to take care of the marionette lines around your mouth and to also fill back in that saggy face.

RADIESSE:  erases lines and folds by replacing lost structure with immediate volume. What makes RADIESSE truly unique is the ability of the product to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow

JUVÉDERM:  Juvederm dermal filler adds volume and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and nasolabial folds instantly

RESTYLANE:  Restylane is a transparent FDA-approved hyaluronic acid gel used to smooth facial lines and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

BELLAFILL:  Bellafill is the only filler approved for acne scarring.  It also fills in fine lines and wrinkles and can also be used in the cheekbone area for an instant lift.  Bellafill has been studied out to 5 years and has been found to be permanent during that 5 year period.  The collagen immediately adds volume to the skin to lift wrinkles known as smile lines. The PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports your body’s own collagen production.  You will need an allergy test with Bellafill.

When you’re dealing with patients’ individual skin textures, age, sun damage and genetic and metabolic factors, not to mention a doctor’s preferences and skill with injectables, the filler that works best is judged on a case-by-case basis.

DOES IT HURT?

Depends on what you call hurt.  It stings, but a topical anesthetic can be applied.

DOWNTIME?

You don’t really have any downtime, but you could slightly bruise in the areas injected.

COST?

The cost of each product differs from the other.  You can plan on spending anywhere form 600.00 – 2500.00.
