Botox (Brotox) and Dermal Fillers for Men in Los Angeles
Over time, contracting your facial muscles (to smile, frown and/or furrow the brows) will cause facial lines to develop-especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. Dr. Steinbrech specializes in Botox and cosmetic dermal fillers for men in Los Angeles. The development of facial lines can make you look tired and older.
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these signs of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.
BOTOX is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the U.S. as one of the most requested services.
Benefits of BOTOX for Men in Los Angeles:
- Is quick, safe and effective
- Reduces or eliminates facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months
- Offers no downtime or surgery
- Causes little to no discomfort
- Can prevent facial lines from forming
- Can smooth facial lines that have formed
Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX gives male patients in Los Angeles a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow’s feet beneath the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck.
The Importance of Choosing a Qualified Physician
Although BOTOX is not a surgical procedure, it is very important to choose a highly experienced and qualified physician for BOTOX treatments for men in Los Angeles. Doctors who are less familiar with the technique could leave you looking “frozen” or overfilled.
Dr. Steinbrech has successfully treated hundreds of patients with BOTOX Cosmetic filler as a skilled physician with a highly sought after expertise. Dr. Steinbrech first consults with his patients considering BOTOX Cosmetic filler before beginning injections to understand what he wants to achieve as the desired results. Injections are done to correct the problem area(s) so that all of his patients are happy with their result of smoother, younger-looking faces.
How does BOTOX work?
BOTOX is made from a highly purified protein that is very safe when administered by a trained physician. The medication relaxes the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. BOTOX® smooths the lines in the skin that make you look tired or angry.
The Many Uses of BOTOX
BOTOX may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.
Dermal Fillers for men in Los Angeles
Restylane® has been used safely by dermatologists and plastic surgeons since 1996 worldwide. Restylane is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours for male patients in Los Angeles. The most common areas for treatment are the lines between the eyebrows and the folds from the root of the nose to the angle of the mouth. With its unique ability to bind with water, Restylane offers the benefit of longer lasting results by remaining in your skin for many months.
Benefits of Restylane for men:
- Is safe and effective
- Offers long-lasting results (as much 2 times the length of collagen)
- Is made of a natural substance found in your body
- Carries little risk of allergic reaction
- Is non-animal-based and biocompatible
How does Restylane work?
It is a clear, synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body. Restylane works in two ways: Upon injection, into the mid to deep dermis (middle skin layer), the NASHA™ gel adds volume and fullness to smooth facial wrinkles and folds. It integrates into dermal tissue, then attracts and binds to water molecules to help maintain volume.
Restylane carries little risk of allergic reaction. Because Restylane is non-animal-based and fully biocompatible, allergy testing is not required. The most commonly reported side effects were temporary redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within two to three days.
What should patients do prior to Restylane treatment?
Prior to Restylane treatments, male patients should avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, or high doses of vitamin E, as these may increase bruising or bleeding; if patients have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that needle punctures could contribute to recurrence.
Radiesse Filler for Men in Los Angeles
Radiesse is a synthetic injectable filler that reduces wrinkles, creases and scars by augmenting the body’s natural collagen supply for male patients in Los Angeles. Composed of microspheres in a biocompatible gel, Radiesse is made from the same minerals found in our bones, so it carries little risk of an allergic reaction.
Radiesse can be used on many areas of the body for men, including:
- The lips
- Smile lines
- Depressed scars
- The corners of the mouth
Treatments typically take 15 minutes and require only a local anesthetic (to numb any pain sensations). Side effects such as swelling or bruising are minimal and should fade within a few days. Results are visible immediately after the injection and can last for months or years, although the procedure can be repeated as often as you wish.
Radiesse has also been approved by the FDA to restore and correct the signs of lipoatrophy (loss of fat beneath the skin) in patients with HIV.
Sculptra® counteracts the loss of fat beneath the skin (a condition called lipoatrophy). Sculptra® is injected into the deep dermis layer of the skin to improve the appearance of sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, indentations and wrinkles. Its main component is an alpha hydroxy acid that has been used for 20 years in surgical products such as dissolvable sutures. Results can last up to two years for male patients.
Voluma dermal filler is a hyaluronic filler, made from long chains of fibers that occur naturally in the skin. It is manufactured by Allergan. It consists of water, anesthetic and hyaluronic acid, creating a gel-like material. It is best applied to the cheeks. Application begins with a numbing agent, which will be applied to the area for about 15 or 20 minutes. Afterward, a medical professional will make symmetrical marks on your skin to note where to inject. The professional will also mark your blood vessels. After this, the Voluma will be injected, just above the bone. Total needles required depends on what sort of look you’re looking for. Voluma normally is administered in 1 mL injections and works best in the cheeks. It entered the market in 2013.
- Last a considerable amount of time, about 18 months but potentially as long as 2 years
- Usually only requires one needle
Juvederm Ultra is also a hyaluronic filler, like Voluma, and is also manufactured by Allergan. It is primarily applied to the lips. It is administered in a very similar way to Voluma. Juvederm contains lidocaine, a common local anesthetic, contained within it already, so an applied numbing agent is not necessary. However, one may be applied by the professional. Juvederm Ultra primarily treats facial wrinkles and increases lip fullness. Juvederm contains about 1 mL of material. It entered the market in 2010.
- Cheaper than Voluma Dermal Filler, at about $500 to $600 a needle
- Bruises and swelling last only one week
Another option made by Allergan is Volbella. Volbella is a hyaluronic filler and is very similar to Voluma. The primary difference is that Volbella is made of thin material, unlike Voluma which is very thick. This thinness allows for small applications. Volbella is the best dermal filler for filling the skin under the eyes, and can also perfect lip lines. Volbella syringes contain about 0.55 mL of material. It is one of the newer fillers on the market, being approved by the FDA in 2016.
- Often inexpensive, at as little as $400-$600 a needle
- Very few, if any, side effects
Vollure is another Allergan-made hyaluronic filler, though it contains much less hyaluronic acid than its counterparts. The gel is slightly different, somewhat more malleable than other materials. Vollure is primarily used to keep the soft tissues of the face plump. It smoothes out wrinkles and the folds around the nose and mouth. Vollure syringes contain about 1 mL of material. It entered the market in 2017.
- Reduced swelling due to its low hyaluronic acid content
- Average price, at $700 a needle
- Can last as long as 18 months
Dysport works differently than the other dermal fillers here, as it is a botox treatment. Despite the different processes, it is again made by Allergan. Instead of injecting material into collapsed areas underneath the skin, Dysport temporarily stops certain facial muscles from moving. This forced relaxation reduces the appearance of forehead lines. The skin responds quickly to the treatment, and you’ll likely see a difference within just a few days. As a botox treatment, Dysport is charged by the unit. Dysport was approved as a facial filler by the FDA in 2009.
- Inexpensive, costing in the low hundreds
- Results will show in a few days
