Modern men have learned to be open about their needs and wants, including their aesthetic goals. Taking care of yourself and wanting to feel good about the way you look are natural human desires, and men deserve to look and feel their best. That’s why at Michigan Center for Cosmetic Services in Ann Arbor, MI we offer several men’s services to meet the aesthetic needs of our male patients.
What Are Men’s Services?
Men’s services are a selection of non-surgical and minimally-invasive cosmetic treatments that can refresh, renew, and rejuvenate a man’s appearance. While these treatments are generally the same as those used for women, it’s important to understand that we approach treatment for men in a unique way. The standards for beauty and attractiveness for men are different than those for women so every effort is taken to customize men’s treatments to their precise aesthetic goals. Our men’s services include hair treatments, body contouring treatments, and facial treatments.
Hair treatments for men focus on both preventing future hair loss and stimulating natural hair growth to correct mild to moderate hair loss. Our hair treatments for men are non-surgical, which means they are more affordable and more comfortable for men. Our two treatments for hair include PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections to the scalp, and the patented Tricomin Triamino Copper Complex® hair care system.
PRP for Hair Loss
PRP treatments for hair loss involve injecting your own blood plasma into the scalp to stimulate the natural regenerative process. This treatment improves the health of low-functioning hair follicles, renews blood flow to the scalp, and stimulates the growth of hair naturally.
Hair Care Products
The patented Tricomin Triamino Copper Complex® hair care system is composed of a shampoo, conditioner and stimulating scalp spray that contains essential nutrients which have been proven to improve scalp and hair wellness. They are designed to naturally support hair growth and strengthen the current hair you have. Using Tricomin hair care products can reduce your overall amount of natural hair shedding, slow or halt hair loss, and support natural hair growth.
Body Contouring Treatments
Body contouring treatments for men are centered on reducing unwanted body fat and tightening loose skin on the body associated with weight loss and the natural aging process. We offer both minimally invasive (BodyTite) and non-invasive (Evolve) body contouring treatments at the Michigan Center for Cosmetic Services. After a consultation with double board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jessica West, you will be provided with the best treatment recommendations to fit your individual needs. are generally non-surgical, which means they will require multiple treatment appointments with gradual results, long-lasting, and natural-looking results.
Evolve Body Sculpting
Evolve is a non-surgical and non-invasive radiofrequency treatment that utilizes the power of thermal energy to reduce unwanted fat and tighten skin. Different applicators are used for specific needs. There is even an applicator to tone muscle through stimulated muscle contraction! Evolve is an ideal match for men who have stubborn fat on certain areas of their body, and may need some additional skin tightening. Common areas for men to treat are the abdomen, flanks, and chest.
BodyTite is a minimally invasive radiofrequency treatment that melts fat and tightens skin using a probe introduced underneath the skin to deliver radiofrequency energy. This can be combined with liposuction to permanently reduce fat. This treatment is more advanced than Evolve due to the more invasive nature of the procedure, which melts fat from the inside while also tightening skin on the outside.
Facial treatments for men refer to a variety of non-surgical and minimally-invasive treatments that are used to improve male aesthetics. Some of these treatments are used to contour the face in a way that is more masculine and youthful. These treatments are ideal for men who want to improve their appearance without painful surgery.
Acne scars from chronic acne during puberty and young adulthood don’t go away by themselves. Many men suffer from deep acne scars that can hinder their overall confidence. The goal for acne scar treatments is to release deep scar tissue, stimulate collagen production, and improve the texture of the skin. Morpheus8 microneedling is the most effective treatment to achieve these goals. Additional treatments include CO2 laser resurfacing and Bellafill injections.
Morpheus8 is a highly diverse minimally invasive treatment that combines the power of radiofrequency energy with microneedling to improve the tone, texture, and quality of the skin. The combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling allows for the treatment of multiple layers of the skin simultaneously, and can be used on virtually every area of the face and neck.
FaceTite is a scarless minimally invasive contouring treatment that sculpts and tightens skin on the lower face and neck. It is an excellent alternative to more invasive procedures like a face and neck lift. FaceTite is an ideal treatment for improving jowls, jawline definition, and reducing fat under the chin and neck. This treatment is ideal for men who want to contour the appearance of their face and neck without the need for invasive surgery.
Wrinkle relaxers are injectable treatments that use certain neurotoxins to inhibit the natural movement of facial muscles. The most popular wrinkle relaxers in the world are Botox and Dysport, which are each formulated with botulinum toxin A. These wrinkle relaxers are injected directly into the muscles of the upper face to release muscle tension and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Common treatment areas are the crow’s feet (eyes), forehead and area between the eyebrows (glabella).
Dermal fillers are a certain class of injectable treatments that are used to restore volume in the face. We start losing the healthy fat that exists in our face starting in our late 20’s, which progresses with time. This can lead to a deflated appearance, under eye circles, laugh lines, and decreased jaw definition. Dermal fillers are generally formulated with hyaluronic acid. They can be used to improve fine lines and wrinkles, and restore a more youthful contour to the face. Common areas for filler include the cheeks, under eyes, laugh lines, jawline and chin.
Which Treatment Is Right for You?
The Men’s Services that are right for you will depend on your personal aesthetic needs and goals. You will be provided with an individualized treatment plan to help you look and feel your best. We will help you select the combination of hair, face, and body treatments to help you reach your goals. For example, if you want to prevent hair loss, reduce belly fat, and correct acne scars then we may recommend PRP injections, body contouring treatments like Evolve, and skin rejuvenating treatments like Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling to help you reach your goals.
Who Are Good Candidates?
Because Men’s Services treatments are minimally invasive and non-surgical, most men are good candidates for these treatments. We will determine your eligibility for these treatments based on your aesthetic goals at your consultation appointment. If you want to improve your overall appearance, then one or more of these aesthetic treatments are likely a good fit for you.
