Unlike in the last century, when men rarely considered cosmetic dermatology treatments, today, more and more men are starting to take advantage of these treatments to look younger and feel better about themselves. Men have certain concerns in regard to their skin that are not the same as women’s concerns. For example, men often do not use sunscreen, and the result is sun-damaged skin.

At Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center, we are proud to offer cosmetic dermatology treatments and skin care regimens specifically designed for men. We provide a wide variety of treatments that are minimally-invasive and do not have a long recovery time, if any at all. Whether you are dealing with excess body hair, wrinkles, stubborn fat, a double chin or other unwanted conditions, we are likely to have a treatment that can help with your issue.

Let’s review some of the most popular treatments for men at Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center.

The most popular treatment for men is Botox, otherwise known as “Bro-tox”. Every year the number of men receiving this treatment increases and the ease and painlessness of this procedure makes it a very easy and quick way to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.

SculpSure® is a unique treatment that uses state-of-the-art laser technology to heat up and eradicate stubborn body fat… permanently. It does this in a very gentle fashion that only targets fat beneath the skin. It is often used on the abdomen and flanks, which are common trouble areas for many men.

Laser hair removal is another popular treatment when it comes to cosmetic dermatology for men. This treatment can be used on almost any part of the body, including the back and chest. It can even be used to groom the beard, a process called laser beard grooming.

Men dealing with wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, scarring or other skin conditions benefit greatly from laser skin resurfacing treatments. These treatments are designed to rejuvenate the skin with minimal downtime, making the complexion tight and even. The result is clearer, smoother skin without unwanted blemishes.

Men can also benefit from a wide range of injectables. Dermal fillers like Restylane® and Sculptra® have helped many of our male patients achieve a younger-looking, refreshed appearance. Kybella®, another type of injectable, can be used to eliminate a double chin. This minimally-invasive treatment is a great alternative to other methods of double chin removal that involve surgery. The best part of Kybella® is that it removes fat permanently!

There are numerous treatments that can help men rejuvenate their appearance, and some of them can even be done during a lunch hour. When you have a consultation with your specialist at Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center, you can explain your skin and/or body issues and learn about your treatment options. Every year, more and more men consider cosmetic dermatology to be part of a good and healthy lifestyle. There is nothing wrong with wanting to look and feel your very best.

Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center is located in La Jolla and proudly serves the San Diego and surrounding areas. Contact us today to schedule a consultation to learn more about cosmetic dermatology for men.
