6 Popular Non-surgical Cosmetic Procedures for Men

Posted July 11, 2022 in Male Plastic Surgery, Non-Surgical MedSpa Treatments

5 Minute Read: 

The reality is that men are just as self-conscious about their appearance as women, which means that plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments are not solely reserved for the female population.

While many men desire a corrected appearance, whether to their face or body, many of these men do not necessarily want to go under the knife for an invasive surgical procedure

In 2020, over 1,100,000 procedures were performed on men, and of this number, over 820,000 were minimally invasive procedures.

However, since there are so many cosmetic treatments available to men, choosing the right one(s) can be more than daunting. And, as cosmetic procedures become more popular with men, the number of options increase. 

To help alleviate some of the “Which procedure do I choose?” anxiety, below are some of the most effective and popular non-surgical procedures for men.

1. Injectable Treatments

Injectable treatments reign superior for both men and women when it comes to non-surgical enhancements. Among these, the most popular is BOTOX® Cosmetic. This injectable is a neuromodulator or neurotoxin (much like Dysport®), meaning that it reduces the appearance of common wrinkles like crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines by temporarily relaxing the muscles and preventing unnecessary muscle contraction.

While neuromodulators/neurotoxins are the most popular injectable treatment among men, dermal fillers can also be beneficial to fill in deep creases or add more definition along the chin and jawline (among other benefits).

2. CO2 Laser Treatments

CO2 laser treatments offer some of the most versatile aesthetic corrections for all skin types. 

Whether you struggle with acne scars, deep scars on the face, sagging skin, or wrinkles and fine lines (as well as other skin blemishes), CO2 laser treatments can offer you stunning improvement. 

With CO2 lasers, carbon dioxide combined with an ablative laser (which uses light energy) are used to remove thin layers of the top, damaged skin. 

Essentially, this laser treatment stimulates new skin growth and collagen production. Collagen is responsible for the strength and elasticity of our skin, so the new skin will be much healthier and stronger than it was before.

3. Emsculpt Neo®

Emculpt Neo® is a revolutionary treatment that burns fat and strengthens muscles at the same time. 

In fact, Emsculpt Neo® is the only FDA-approved treatment to do so. 

This treatment uses HIFEM® (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetism) technology to cause the muscles in the treatment area to contract at rapid rates. In fact, the electromagnetic energy causes the muscles to contract nearly 20,000 times in one session. That’s the same as 20,000 sit-ups or curls or leg lifts at one time. 

Essentially, you are getting the workout of your life, and you don’t need to move a muscle (because the Emsculpt Neo® system is doing that for you). 

Because of these contractions, you will burn fat in the treatment areas as well as strengthen muscle. 

This treatment can be used on the abdomen, buttocks, triceps, biceps, thighs, and calves, and can help give you the toned and firm look you’ve been wanting.

4. PiXel8-RF

The PiXel8-RF rejuvenation treatment can be used to tighten your skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and improve your skin texture so that you look as young and healthy as you feel. 

This treatment combines microneedling with bi-polar radiofrequency (RF) energy. For this procedure, microneedles are used to create controlled injuries to the upper layers of skin; then, the radiofrequency energy penetrates through the injuries to reach the skin’s dermis. 

There, the RF energy stimulates the production of elastin and collagen in the skin, which strengthens and improves the elasticity and texture of the skin to give you overall improvement to your appearance. 

5. SculpSure®

SculpSure® is a revolutionary treatment that uses light energy to reduce the amount of fat in your body, and one of the best parts is that there is no required downtime, so you can have your treatment and go right back to enjoying your normal, everyday activities. 

The SculpSure® system alternates between a heat laser and a cooling effect to target and kill fat cells in the treatment area without harming any of the surrounding skin or tissue. 

The body will then naturally flush these dead fat cells from your body so that you can look more trimmed and toned. 

This procedure can be used to reduce the amount of fat in your abdomen, love handles, thighs, back, and under your chin.

6. Laser Hair Removal

No one wants hair in the wrong places, and for men, that can often mean hair on the back and other areas. 

At Careaga Plastic Surgery, we are proud to use the GentleYAG Pro-U™ system for laser hair removal. Here, intense light energy is used to weaken and destroy unwanted hair at the root so that the hair is removed permanently. 

Additionally, because of the Dynamic Cooling Device™, liquid cryogen is used along with the intense light energy to cool the skin, making this treatment pain free and effective. 

No longer will you need to worry about waxing, shaving, or plucking hair (or covering your body up with clothing). You’ll be able to feel more confident and comfortable in knowing that your skin is smooth and hair free.
