Women aren’t alone in their search for ways to turn back the clock today. Men also have their reasons to restore a more youthful appearance, from staying competitive in the boardroom to maintaining their self-confidence in personal relationships. Fortunately, men in search of the proverbial fountain of youth can often find what they are looking for in anti-aging treatments designed with their precise needs in mind. Dr. Daniel Lensink offers a variety of procedures to help men turn back time on their appearance and meet their specific anti-aging goals.
When your eyes start to make you look worn and tired even when you are getting enough sleep, a rejuvenation procedure may be in order. Eyelid surgery is a way to lift drooping lids and open up the eyes, refreshing your entire appearance. The treatment can be modified to your precise goals, focusing on the upper or lower lids or both eyelids at the same time.
This outpatient surgery can be done using local anesthetic in most cases. Incisions are made in the natural creases of the skin to minimize visible scarring, and the corrections entail removal of loose skin and pockets of fat and tissue to create a smoother contour to the lids. Recovery is usually one or two weeks, and your results will last for many years.
Double Chin Treatment
Many men are just as concerned about a double chin as they are about facial creases during the aging process. The submental fat that forms underneath the jawline is usually due more to time than weight gain, but it can make you look like you are packing on some pounds. There are two different ways Dr. Lensink can eliminate the submental fat and create a firmer, stronger jawline.
Kybella is a prescription medication that is injected under the chin to remove stubborn fat from the area. The solution contains deoxycholic acid, a substance that destroys fat cells, so the body naturally flushes them away. Liposuction is another option in facial contouring that involves the insertion of a small cannula into the fat deposit. The cannula loosens fat and suctions it away, leaving a more defined jawline in its wake.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
If skin redness or brown spots are your primary aging worry, laser skin resurfacing may be the answer. This non-surgical procedure uses laser heat to target the melanin causing the pigmentation, reducing the appearance of the age spot and creating a clearer, more youthful complexion. This treatment also effectively treats fine lines and enlarged pores, giving you a result that is distinctly younger without compromising your masculinity.
While men like to have a few distinguished lines around the eyes, an abundance of creases can make you look more elderly than manly. Botox injections are just the ticket for targeting these dynamic wrinkles that form in the outer corners of the eyes as a result of frequent squinting or smiling. The formulation is also efficient for smoothing away forehead lines and the deep vertical creases that form between the eyebrows.
ALMI is a revolutionary procedure that takes your fat cells and platelet rich plasma (PRP) to restore youthful volume and health to the face. The procedure removes unwanted fat cells from another area of the body like the midsection using a minimally-invasive liposuction technique. Blood is also drawn to extract the PRP rich in growth factors and other anti-aging substances. Dr. Lensink combines the fat cells and PRP into a single, smooth product that can be injected into areas of the face much like dermal fillers. While the fat adds instant volume to the area, the growth factors in the PRP continue to work within the dermal structure to stimulate cell regeneration and collagen production for long-lasting, natural results.
