Laser Hair Removal with Palomar Vectus System
Unwanted hair can be embarrassing for men, especially when it is abundant or growing in the wrong places. These problems most often arise in people with light skin and dark hair, although anyone can experience excessive or unwanted hair on the face or body.
There are several treatment options available for men seeking a long-term solution. Laser hair removal exposes specific areas of the body to beams of laser light that disable active hair follicles and delay or prevent re-growth. Ideal for patents with dark skin, this procedure effectively and permanently removes unwanted hair after a series of treatment sessions. Electrolysis can also achieve permanent hair removal, and it is quick, safe and causes little discomfort. During the procedure, a tiny probe is inserted into the hair follicle, where it delivers radiofrequency energy that heats the hair matrix until it coagulates. The hair is removed after a series of weekly treatments.
Palomar Vectus System
The Vectus™ Laser System by Palomar features the latest technology for permanent hair removal. Optimized to provide effective treatment for a wide variety of both hair and skin types, the Vectus Laser removes unwanted hair quickly and efficiently. The procedure only takes a few minutes for small areas and approximately 30 minutes for larger areas, with no downtime needed afterward.
Treatments with the Vectus Laser System are comfortable and safe for patients. The device has an advanced cooling mechanism that protects the skin and prevents the treatment site from feeling heated. The laser features a uniform beam, which is designed to successfully destroy the hair follicles without requiring multiple passes of the device over the same area.
Laser hair removal is a great option for the many men and women who are tired of the temporary, painful methods of removing hair from the face, back, legs, arms or other areas of the body. The Vectus Laser System will remove the unwanted hair while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. Several treatment sessions may be required to obtain the best possible results.
CoolSculpting is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses patented cooling technology to eliminate fat without surgery. This clinically proven technique is designed to selectively reduce the fat in problem areas that has proven resistant to reduction through diet and exercise. CoolSculpting gently cools targeted cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of these unwanted fat cells.
CoolSculpting is the first and only nonsurgical procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas that include muffin tops, love handles and back fat. Developed in 2005 and backed by strong clinical research, CoolSculpting is based on Cryolipolysis (cold lipolysis)-the use of precisely controlled cooling to remove fat.
Based on the scientific principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the overlying skin and surrounding tissues, CoolSculpting reduces the temperature of fat cells in the treated area. This is intended to promote fat cell elimination through a natural biological process known as apoptosis, without causing scar tissue or damage to the skin, nerves or surrounding tissues.
Patients generally start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to six months after treatment.
When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. Soft tissue fillers can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.
Soft tissue fillers are FDA-approved and safe for use by most patients. Many of the fillers are made from substances found naturally in the body, or synthetically made to mimic natural substances or stimulate collagen production. These fillers are injected directly into the skin of the targeted area to restore volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At Suffolk Plastic Surgeons, we offer patients several different soft tissue filler options in order to provide the best possible results for their individual needs.
Botox Cosmetic is just as helpful for men as it is for women. In fact, hundreds of thousands of Botox procedures are performed annually on men. It is effective for reducing lines and wrinkles all over the face, but the most popular areas of treatment for men are between the eyebrows and across the forehead. Men can benefit from Botox's ability to help them look relaxed and younger, whether you want to look your best for business meetings or social purposes. Even men in their 30s and 40s can have noticeable furrows from smiling, frowning and other facial movements. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired.
Quick, safe and effective, BOTOX® reduces facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months with no downtime and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX® treatments can not only prevent these lines from deepening, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking refreshed.
