Men’s Health in the Facial Region | Dr. Diana Ponsky

June was Men’s Health Month, so I shared a lot of information about men’s health in the facial region all month on my Instagram and TikTok. This blog post will cover everything I’ve talked about in my videos, and more!

How Men Age in the Facial Region

Men have thicker skin than women (about 25% thicker), so they’re less likely to have fine lines as they age. However, repeated motions over the years and lack of use of sunblock will etch in lines that are deeper. These lines usually occur in the forehead and in the neck area.

Men also tend to lose hair faster. So in exchange for having thicker skin, they have premature hair loss. According to the Cleveland Clinic, “Half of the men in the world experience hair loss by age 50. About 70% of men will lose hair as they get older. And 25% of bald men see first signs of hair loss before age 21.”

Preventing & Treating Deep Lines

For prevention of deep lines in the, around the eye area, the periocular region, we can talk about Botox and the use of sunscreen and good moisturizers, exfoliation, etc. In the neck area, honestly, it’s about machines and surgery and possibly even Botox.

Skin resurfacing is a suite of procedures performed by Cleveland facial plastic surgeon Dr. Diana Ponsky which involves removing the outer sun-damaged layers of the facial skin with lasers, chemical peels, or dermabrasion.

Laser treatment is one of the best ways to address many of the signs of aging, including sunspots, age spots, and wrinkles. Laser skin resurfacing also revitalizes skin following years of moderate to significant sun exposure. By stimulating collagen reorganization and eliminating discoloration, laser resurfacing improves the color, texture, and elasticity of skin.

Did you know that more men in their twenties and thirties are interested in what we call prejuvenation? What that means is that they are taking care of wrinkles and issues before they happen. Young men have been choosing to proactively prevent the depth of fine lines by using botox.

Preventing & Treating Hair Loss

Both medical and surgical options are available for reversing thinning hair. There are medications that can slow or prevent additional hair loss and can increase growth.

We can also perform hair transplants. FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a state of the art procedure that restores density to the frontal hairline and other areas of thinning. NeoGraft FUE is a modern form of hair transplant that adds thickness and density to the hairline without the unnatural appearance and without the long linear scar of more traditional techniques.

Male Rhinoplasty

What makes a nose job look more feminine or more masculine?

Men have bigger nasal bridges, it’s slightly wider. The tip does not have to be as defined, or so-called refined, in the lower third area. So for instance, it can be slightly more bulbous on a female’s nose, and that’s because their skin is also a little bit thicker.

The second thing is that from the side profile where the nose starts, what we call the root of the nose, is slightly higher in men than in women. And the dorsum or the slope of the nose is straighter in a man versus a female. A female nose tends to tilt up a little bit more and the male knows it’s just really a straight dorsum that starts up a little bit higher.  The nasal tip can come out a little more (called projection) in men, and the nasal tip can tilt up a little less (less rotation in male noses).
