Yo, Yo, Daddy-O! The fatherhood journey often feels like riding a triple-loop rollercoaster or attempting to juggle knives and balloons. It’s more than fast and furious. It’s sweet and stressful, thrilling and chilling, exasperating and illuminating. And worth every hair-raising, wrinkle-inducing moment.
Being a top-notch dad doesn’t mean turning in your “cool card” by any stretch of the imagination. Staying in step with your kids will also keep you feeling young and vibrant. There’s no reason not to look as great as you feel. Now, more than ever before, men are choosing cosmetic procedures to maintain some mojo and preserve a Prince Charming appeal. And why not? You give your best effort to everything you do—from your family to your career. Give some focused attention to the man in the mirror, too. The Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery (RFPS) team can give you all the inside scoop on raising your personal profile with some of these non-surgical or surgical options.
Man of Steel?
Even that red cape cannot totally shield the average superman from the effects of aging. Time might be the ultimate kryptonite for the everyday hero. While it’s true that many men look distinguished with a few lines and wrinkles, you may long for a more spry reflection when you pass a mirror and achieving such may not require surgery. A variety of injectables are available to help erase fine lines to deep wrinkles or to add volume sunken or hollow areas of the face:
Botox?/Dysport?—reduces the muscle activity contributing to worry lines, frown lines and crow’s feet lines. Injected directly under the skin, Botox and Dysport work well on the forehead, between the brows, around the eyes, and on the chin. These formulas diffuse into the tissue and effectively release the tension points to relax creasing.
Dermal Fillers— Also injected directly into the skin, dermal fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA) which occurs naturally in the body and functions as a cushioning agent. These fillers use varying formulations of HA to replenish areas that have lost volume, such as the nasolabial folds (around the mouth), underneath the eyes, chin crease, and pre-jowl hallows. Another dermal filler option is Sculptra’s unique formula. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging. It provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of wrinkles, folds and sunken areas in the face.
Over time, the surface of the skin may show significant pigment changes, scarring, enlarged pores or sun damage. Our Visage Skin Care Center offers targeted laser treatments to combat a range of problems. These options can restore a youthful appearance and improve your complexion in a relatively short period of time with long-lasting results.
