Aging, gravity, and sun exposure aren’t exclusive to women. Men are living longer, more active and don’t wish to look older. Maybe you want to stay competitive in the board room or in outside sales. Maybe you just want to “keep the edge” or refrain from being called “the Old Man.” Fortunately, the men’s aesthetic techniques and technology delivered by the right hands at Palos Verdes Aesthetics (PVA) has taken off.
Palos Verdes Aesthetics is uniquely set up for you. Whether you want to take some small steps and try Botox or design a minimally invasive aesthetics plan to cover the next few years, PVA is one of the most up-to-date centers available in the South Bay. Let’s breakdown aesthetics into four areas: Pigment, Tissue Laxity, Fillers, and Botox….
You can try creams, potions, and lotions to reduce age spots, little blood vessels just under the skin and uneven pigmentation, but it tends to become a production. We don’t like using the term “cosmetics” around men, since it sounds like a fancy counter in a department store with lipstick and mirrors. Besides, a long discussion of the pros and cons of every product is boring. Guys just want to see the results and hear the facts.
So here’s one: Lumecca by Inmode is the most powerful and comprehensive light based treatment out there. It takes out the reds, browns, and all the colors in between, and those pesky little blood vessels that crop up by your nose and just get bigger if not treated. Lumecca does not require numbing creams, needles, or local anesthetics and can do the job in one to two sessions. There is maybe a day or two of downtime, but Lumecca won’t stifle your workout. Just wear a hat and some good sunscreen after treatment.
