Men’s Medical Guide – Part 2
You’re aging. It happens. And lucky for you, the cosmetic tools to hide it are no longer reserved for ladies and plastic-faced newscasters. More men than ever are fixing their faces with lasers, needles, and chemicals. Suddenly the ever shifting line between what’s sensible and what’s shameful is getting tough to see (unlike those lines on your forehead)
Here at Wembley we offer various medical treatments, the most popular ones:
BOTOX® is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet. Botox is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Doctors use it in small doses to treat health problems, including
- Temporary smoothing of facial wrinkles and improving your appearance
- Severe underarm sweating
- Cervical dystonia – a neurological disorder that causes severe neck and shoulder muscle contractions
- Blepharospasm – uncontrollable blinking
- Strabismus – misaligned eyes
- Chronic migraines
- Overactive bladder
How long till you see results
For most patients, softening of lines can only be seen within 4-7 days, with maximum benefit at 2 weeks. It is a good idea to re-evaluate at 2 weeks to see if there is a need for additional injections. Your Doctor will decide how often you can be treated with BOTOX®.

What issues can skin needling correct?
- hyper and hypo pigmentation
- various types of scars
- acne, dilated pores
- keratosis pilaris
- It also stimulates angiogenesis [the formation of new blood vessels].
Are there any side effects or risks associated with skin needling?
Side effects experienced with the DermaPen will usually subside within 48 hours. They include red or pinkish skin, stinging, itching, and tightness of the treated area. To help with this, be sure to adhere to your aesthetician’s aftercare instructions following a DermaPen treatment. This will help to reduce redness, swelling, itching and discomfort and also enhance results.
How much time do you think you’ve wasted shaving your face, back, or chest in your lifetime? I know for me, it feels like thousands of hours. According to industry surveys, it is estimated that 90% of all adult males shave at least once a day, and it is also estimated that a man will shave at least 20,000 times in his lifetime. What a waste of time!
Maybe you just want a cleaner hair line on the back of the neck or want to stop shaving your neck due to ingrown hairs. Perhaps your back or chest hair is interfering with your social life or confidence. Are you tired of yanking out brow hair to prevent a uni- brow? Laser hair removal is the best and most permanent solution for all of these issues.
It’s important that you spend some time considering laser hair removal for men. Eliminate the daily or monthly hair removal routine will improve your life. Save yourself the time and pain of waxing or the embracement of having someone else help shave your back by permanently removing the hair you don’t like.
More and more men are opting to have unwanted body hair removed so they can either reduce the amount or have completely smooth skin. Laser hair removal is the treatment of choice for many men. Not only do they want it removed from the chest and back, but they also like to have their neck, shoulders and ears cleaned up as well. While most people may think about women having this treatment for hair removal, laser hair removal for men is becoming more and more popular.
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser, an intense, pulsating beam of light, to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.
