To close out #MensHealthMonth, Dr. Hammon responds to your top #SkinCare questions and shares his top tips. 

“Women account for the majority of #CosmeticDermatology treatments in the U.S. but according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons there’s been an increase of 182% in BOTOX® Cosmetic injections in men between 2000 and 2020. Since the start of the pandemic there’s been a trend toward more use of both wrinkle reducers and fillers.  According to Dr. Hammon, “cosmetic treatments offer no gender bias and are very practical for both men and women. When it comes to cosmetic treatments, I often like to talk about prevention rather than the ‘wait and watch’ technique. Neuromodulator treatments such as BOTOX would have to be my favorite. BOTOX Cosmetic works for what’s known as dynamic rhytids, or wrinkles that are formed by repetitive facial expressions such as raising the eyebrows, smiling, and squinting. The goal of these treatments isn’t to create a frozen appearance, but rather to soften lines on your face, with the overall effect being subtle yet functional. Injections of hyaluronic acid can also be effective in men to augment the chin and jawline. Other great treatments include Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) as an effective treatment for hair loss and laser treatments for persistent redness, broken blood vessels, uneven pigmentation, or the ‘undesirable neck beard’.”
