Your “year of you” starts with learning about the latest anti-aging procedures
“There’s nothing selfish about self-care,” says James Mirabile, M.D. founder and on-site medical director at Mirabile M.D. Beauty, Health and Wellness. “In fact, especially now, becoming your own healthcare advocate is smarter than ever.”
“We’ve seen the profound effect looking your best can have on self confidence and attitude.”
That’s exactly what Denise found out after having the Morpheus8 procedure at the center’s medical spa division, MedCosmetic. “I’ve always believed in the saying ‘Having the courage to change the things I can.’ So, I finally became proactive about dealing with my lax skin and acne scars.”
Heralded by top dermatologists in the October 2020 issue of Shape Magazine, Morpheus8 combines the powers of radiofrequency and microneedling. The RF energy tightens soft tissue—even on hard-to-treat stretch marks and cellulite—while the tiny needles stimulate elastin and collagen to increase firmness. The results are well worth the two or three days of redness.
Gentlemen, start your skin care
While the majority of the medical spa patients are women of all ages, men are increasingly coming in for minor procedures to more involved, customized anti-aging programs.
One such patient follows a regular treatment of Hydrafacials to address hyperpigmentation, acne, ashy/dry skin, enlarged pores, and skin textural issues. The four-step process—which is corrective as well as pampering—includes deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction and hyper hydration. It’s suitable for all skin types and is customized to each person’s particular needs.
For more problematic skin issues, PICO Genesis can reduce age spots and stubborn melasma to provide a more even complexion while increasing skin elasticity. No wonder PICO Genesis is one of Dr. Mirabile’s favorite laser procedures. “It’s painless, highly effective in brightening the skin tone and there’s no downtime, making it an excellent choice for busy men and women.”
Get a six-pack to go
Men—and women—are also drawn to a number of body sculpting procedures available at the medical spa. Evolve, a Good Housekeeping Best Beauty award winner, uses radiofrequency energy for a non-invasive treatment that offers remarkable results with no downtime. Evolve’s three modalities can be used individually or combined to achieve faster results. Evolve Tite firms the skin on the upper arms, abdomen, flanks, buttocks and thighs, while Evolve Trim removes excess fat on the lower body. Evolve Tone, meanwhile, delivers electromagnetic energy to stimulate contractions to strengthen the abdomen, thighs and buttocks muscles.
truSculpt® fleX is another game-changer in the body-contouring realm, as noted by Men’s Health and Glamourmagazines. Men, in particular, appreciate the ability to actually build muscle mass—that’s where the six-pack promise comes in.
Botox and beyond
Injectables, including Botox® and Dysport®, are often how patients begin their anti-aging process. But the treatment is only a good as the injector, says Dr. Mirabile. “We consider our nurse injectors to be artists,” he says, “because they take time to study each patient’s facial feature and determine what’s the best treatment based on the patient’s desires and options.”
“Men, especially, appreciate how our team excels in creating subtle changes. We call it ‘Brotox’ as more and more guys hear about us from girlfriends, wives and colleagues.”
Botox can do much more than smooth wrinkles between eyebrows that tend to make people look angry—a problem heightened by the increase in Zoom meetings and while wearing masks. For instance, MicroTox is a new injection technique that delivers multiple microdroplets to reduce crepiness and those “necklace-like” lines on the neck while tightening the jawline.
Visit MirabileMD.com to learn other ways Botox and Dysport are used to treat a variety of issues, including clenching jaws and grinding teeth—situations that have definitely increased over the past several months.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, can replenish lost volume, sculpt facial contours and correct asymmetry. And Restylane Kysse® is a new filler designed especially for the lips, providing natural-looking volume and a more defined lip border.
More for the men
While Botox may be the first step for gentlemen patients, they soon discover the wide variety of other treatments available to them, including laser hair removal IPL and excel V+ for sun damage, as well as laser tattoo removal.
The hormone therapy division of Mirabile M.D. offers safe, effective bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and helps male patients address the side effects of low testosterone, including fatigue, anxiety, depression and loss of mental clarity and libido.
“Our bio-identical hormone replacement therapies for men and women are another aspect of our focus on overall wellness,” says Dr. Mirabile. “I founded this center on the realization that my patients’ issues were often interrelated. When we address the whole person—internally through hormone deficiency and weight issues—as well as anti-aging procedures, we have patients that are at the apex of health, no matter what age or sex.”
