Cosmetic Dermatology for Men in Toronto
At Kingsway Dermatology & Cosmetic Centre, we provide high-quality medical and cosmetic dermatology services to meet a wide range of our patients’ skin concerns, and our skilled dermatologists and staff change lives every day through effective, cutting-edge treatments.
We understand that men and women have many aesthetic skin concerns in common, but there are key differences to take into account when treating men, and each treatment plan will be personalized to meet our patients’ individual needs.
How is Men’s Skincare Different?
Although men’s skin concerns are similar to women’s, there are definitely subtle differences. At Kingsway Dermatology & Cosmetic Centre, we strive to help our male patients regain and maintain a healthy, masculine look with a discreet and natural approach.
While some of our male patients are looking for a more youthful appearance to help them stay competitive in the workplace and in their social life, others seek treatment for acne scars, broken blood vessels, or brown spots to help them feel more like themselves again. Still others wish to improve on what Mother Nature gave them, such as a more prominent chin or a defined jawline. Whatever your needs, we are here to help.
BOTOX® and XEOMIN® are neuromodulators that smooth out dynamic wrinkles, which occur when the facial muscles contract. Affectionately known as “Brotox,” BOTOX® treatments are becoming increasingly popular among men, and our dermatologists are experts when it comes to ensuring that our patients do not look “done,” preserving a natural appearance.
Dermal fillers can be combined with BOTOX® or other treatments to improve concerns such as puffy under-eye circles that make patients look tired. We use these treatments to give patients a more rested look, and certain topical products can also be used to improve skin’s appearance under the eyes.
Men are more likely to have submental fat (that is, a “double chin”), which can make patients feel older and heavier, especially in profile. BELKYRA® is an injectable product that permanently breaks down double chin fat. This treatment is sometimes combined with dermal fillers (above) for total jowl and jawline contouring in men.
Many male patients frequently experience the hassle of having to shave, clip, or wax their body hair, particularly on their backs. Laser hair removal permanently removes and reduces unwanted body hair, and it can prevent recurrent inflamed hair follicles (such as razor bumps or ingrown hairs) on the face, neck, back, shoulders, and arms.
Many men struggle with excessive sweating in the underarm area, despite frequent deodorant and antiperspirant applications, which can be annoying and even embarrassing at times. At Kingsway, we offer several treatments for hyperhidrosis in men, including BOTOX® and oral and topical medications.
Acne scars can vary dramatically from person to person, so treatment for acne scars will depend on the patient’s individual case. Treatments we offer include laser resurfacing, microneedling, chemical peels, PRP (platelet-rich plasma), and more, or a combination of several of these treatments at your dermatologist’s discretion.
If a patient is concerned about a crooked nose from a previous fracture or the prominence of a bump or a hook, is seeking a more prominent nasal bridge, or is otherwise dissatisfied with the shape of their nose, we can improve the appearance of the nose with a safe, non-surgical approach that takes roughly 30 minutes.
Many men are beginning to realize the importance of a regular skin care routine, which becomes increasingly important with age. We have a number of cosmetic dermatology services available to revitalize the skin, and our dermatologists will recommend the best procedure to keep skin looking fresh lifted, toned, and even.
