Skin Rejuvenation for Men
Dermatology & Plastic Surgery of Arizona recommends ZO Skin Health, Revision Skin Care and EltaMD Skincare to reverse sun damage, pigmentation problems, and lines. These skin care lines effectively shed the old, dull, pigmented layers of the skin away leaving fresh, new glowing skin in its place. These skincare lines were formulated for both male and females. Dr. Moenster, Dr. Weyer and their staff work individually with their male patients to specifically design the best program to work most efficiently on their skin. ZO Skin Health Systems works on all skin types.
TCA Controlled Depth Peel
The ZO Controlled Depth Peel Kit for use with TCA 30% (trichloracetic acid) is used to medically treat the various skin conditions of acne, wrinkles, fine lines, skin pigmentation disorders, and sun damage. This kit includes an innovative Base, Cleanser, and accessories. Pre-conditioning skin with ZO® Skin Health products is required before performing this peel. TCA (trichloracetic acid) is a non-toxic chemical that is used by medical professionals to perform therapeutic skin peels. When TCA is applied to skin it causes surface skin cells to dehydrate – and then peel off – over a period of several days to one week. When the surface skin peels away, it exposes a new layer of undamaged skin, which has a smoother texture and a more even skin tone.
TCA Controlled Depth Peel Candidates:
- Men with brown spots, age spots, uneven skin pigmentation, and the appearance of melasma
- Individuals who need to improve the texture of leathery, sun damaged skin and impart more glow
- Men with certain types of acne conditions and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
- Men with fine lines and wrinkles
ZO Skin Health 3-Step Peel for Men
ZO 3-Step Peel ® is ideal for men who want to achieve a toning of their facial skin, rid the signs of sun damage and brown aging spots. This peel does require conditioning of the skin with ZO Skin Health programs which contain Retin A which is ideal to use prior to the peel. There is a 5 day down time where the skin sheds deep outer layers of the skin similar to a snake shedding its outer skin. The results leave your face with a fresh new layer of pink, glowing, smooth and tight skin. The peel’s effects last up to a year especially when you are compliant and return to your ZO Skin Health at home program to continue the exfoliation and stimulation process. While African American Men are not eligible for many laser treatments, the ZO Skin Health 3-Step Peel is truly ideal for black skin in which it reduces the pigmentation, acne and tones the face all within one treatment.
IPL for Male Brown and Red Pigmentation Issues
Men typically prefer easy skin care. For those men who wish for a simplified approach to skin improvement and tightening, consider the use of light and laser therapies. IPL (intense pulsed light) helps improve skin spots, pigmentation, red blemishes, capillaries and rosacea. Depending on the level of redness and brown pigmentation a series of 3 treatments may be necessary to truly effectively reduce the problems providing a smooth and even coloration for our male patients.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing effectively remodels the top layers of damaged and wrinkled skin. Remodeling the top layer of the skin, helps stimulate new, smoother and more vibrant skin. Dermatology & Plastic Surgery of Arizona uses Erbium lasers, which are designed to soften superficial and moderately deep lines and wrinkles on the face, hands, neck and chest. There is no downtime with these lasers and patients experience minimal burning of surrounding tissue as well as minimal side effects. This makes your recovery time fast as opposed to using CO2 laser resurfacing.
Botox Cosmetic for men will subtly smooth the moderate to severe lines around your eyes and between your brows. Botox is a great option for men with busy schedules as the actual treatment takes 10-15 minutes and it requires minimal downtime or recovery. A typical visit includes a consultation with Dr. Moenster to discuss any concerns you may have about Botox. Once your assessment is complete, Dr. Moenster or Dr. Weyer will inject you with Botox Cosmetic. Results have been proven to last up to 4 months in patients with moderate to severe frown lines.
