What Men Want

Six Bro-Tastic Treatments for the Guys This Father’s Day at LifeHope Healing Med Spa

1. Botox – Bro-Tox.  This treatment is a gender shift from Botox, the number one trending facial treatment for men, and accepted amazingly well by our male patients. Lines and wrinkles are erased, and a patient (when treated by a well-trained injector) looks well-rested and stress-free. This treatment can be performed in-office in 15 – 30 mins or less.

2. IPL – Photo Rejuvenation. An Intense Pulsed Light treatment targets sun damage, age spots, facial flushing (redness), small facial veins, and stimulates collagen for a healthier appearance and diminishes overall signs of aging associated with discoloration, tone and texture. Treatments are performed in-office in 30 - 45 minutes. Patients can resume normal activity. IPL is suggested in a series of 3 to 4 treatments, performed 3 to 4 weeks apart with maintenance treatments suggested at season's change, following the initial series for most patients.

3. Micro-Needling and/or Plasma Energy with PRP for Skin Rejuvenation- These unique options create micro-controlled injuries to the areas treated to encourage collagen stimulation and new cell turnover. Treatment can be performed with or without the combination of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) applied topically and/or injected to drastically enhance results. These treatment options focus on texture, the appearance of pore size, acne scars, uneven skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles. Treatments are performed in-office in 45 mins to an hour. The provider will apply topical numbing to ensure patients' comfort throughout the treatment.

4. Focused Laser-Assisted Liposuction with Beautifill by Alma lasers is performed in-office and under local anesthesia. This treatment has been a sought-after option by our male clientele to address small pockets of unwanted fatty tissue in areas such as the double chin, abdomen, and flanks. With the ease of scheduling this in-office procedure, and the minimal downtime associated, our male patients are able to achieve that sculpted and chiseled end result they have been looking for without having to enter the OR.

5. Laser Hair Removal - “With our Soprano Ice Platinum by Alma Lasers, our expert technicians are able to treat a patient’s area of concern with minimal if any discomfort, and in a ¼ of the time than most laser hair removal systems take for treatment.” – explains Dr. Kevin Lie. Male patients of any skin type can achieve long-lasting results following a series of approximately 6 treatments scheduled 6 – 8 weeks apart depending on the area. Whether you are seeking hair removal for painful in-grown issues, easier hygiene, comfort when working out, a clean look, or to minimize extreme hair growth in unwanted areas, laser hair removal has never been more comfortable.  

6. Body Contouring - Guys, there are SO many non-surgical, incredible treatment options available to successfully achieve that desired physique you have been working so hard to achieve. Dr. Lie is incorporating all aspects of non-surgical technology available in one appointment to achieve gratifying definition and contouring. Combine the use of fire (ultrasound to breakdown unwanted fatty tissue with Alma Lasers – Accent Prime) with ice (Cryolipolysis freezing fat with proven technology provided by CoolSculpting), and immediately followed by lightning (Radio Frequency provided by Alma Lasers – Accent Prime’s spinning handpiece to take a deep dive into the tissue to further breakdown unwanted and targeted fatty deposits).
