Dr. Michele S. Green, a board certified dermatologist based in NYC, uses several different procedures to treat the visible signs of aging in men. It is important to make a consultation first to determine what the right solution for you might be. When it comes to the eyes – typical signs of aging in men often include sagging eyelids, wrinkles around the eyes, along with dark circles (eye bags) and spots.
Options for eye rejuvenation include the following:
Laser treatments such as eMatrix™ and Fraxel are used to reduce lines and wrinkles around the eyes. For those with darker skin tones (including Asian, Latin American, Mediterranean and more) the eMatrix can safely be used and is a very effective treatment. The way that the eMatrix laser works is that it uses bipolar radiofrequency energy which is designed to heat below the skin surface. This heat helps generate new collagen whilst keeping the top layer of the skin intact. Up to three treatments might be required to ensure the best results and the great thing about the eMatrix is that the results continue to improve for up to a year post-treatment while the skin is building new collagen.
An alternative treatment is the Fraxel laser. The Fraxel laser utilizes the 1550 wavelength to help improve skin texture, and in turn reduce fine lines and wrinkles. One of the main benefits of the Fraxel laser is that men who have a busy life style can undertake this treatment and have little downtime afterwards, which means you can get back to your daily life quickly. Better still, in most cases improvement can be seen after just one treatment.
Depending on your treatment requirements and your skin tone, the eMatrix or the Fraxel laser may be recommended by Dr. Green.
Belotero or Restylane for under eye hollows
Belotero and Restylane are hyaluronic based dermal fillers which are used to fill hollow areas under the eyes. As men pass the age of 35, and as a result of genetics, the collagen underneath the eyes starts to diminish, gradually. This in turn creates an effect that can be described as a ‘hollow eye look’. Belotero or Restylane treatments are carried out through the use of an injection that replenishes the collagen beneath the eyes and makes the tear trough area appear shallower. This treatment removes the dark shadow and rejuvenates the eye area. The procedure is relatively quick to carry out and results can last up to 12 months.
