Male Non-Surgical Treatments

While more and more men begin to consider plastic surgery and aesthetic enhancement treatments to help them appear more youthful and fit, many men are looking for more subtle and less invasive options that can provide them with natural-looking results and no extensive recovery times. Non-surgical cosmetic enhancement procedures from our plastic surgeon offer men the opportunity to reduce signs of age and fatigue in the face without diminishing their masculine appearance or having to go through a long recovery process. These procedures are designed to rejuvenate the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, add volume to facial features, and give you a more youthful and refreshed look.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular non-surgical enhancement treatments and can be very effective at reducing signs of crow’s feet, frown lines, and wrinkles and creases. The BOTOX® Cosmetic solution is designed to temporarily smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, giving you a more rested, youthful, and less stressed appearance. Dr. Kalus will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic in the areas targeted for treatment with an ultra-fine needle. The entire procedure typically takes about 15 minutes or less, and most patients can resume normal daily routines immediately.

Results from BOTOX® Cosmetic can last up to four months and be maintained with follow-up treatments.


Dysport® is very similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, and can be very useful reducing fine lines and creases near the eyebrows and along the forehead. Composed of a highly-diluted form of abotulinum toxin type A, Dysport® is known to reduce wrinkling without having a significant effect on movement of facial muscles in the treatment areas. Dysport® injections can be performed here at our practice in a procedure that often takes 15 minutes or less. Patients can typically go right back to work or resume normal daily activities immediately after the procedure.

Dysport® results can last three to four months, and the effects can be lengthened with follow-up treatment.

Injectable Dermal Fillers

Injectable dermal fillers can not only reduce signs of deep wrinkles and folds along the face, they can also add volume to facial features such as the lips and cheeks. Fillers such as Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, and others available at our practice offer a number of aesthetic and usually takes 20 minutes or less, with little to no downtime necessary. Lines between the nose and mouth can be smoothed out, deep wrinkles and creases can be diminished, cheeks that have lost volume and appear hollow can be filled in and recontoured, and lips can be plumped up for a more youthful aesthetic. Injectable dermal fillers often have long-lasting results, at least six months and even up to a year or longer in some cases. Plus, many injectable fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the human body, and therefore do not require an allergy test. Most patients can resume normal daily routines right after treatment with dermal fillers.


Artefill® is an FDA-approved dermal filler designed to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and creases on the face. Particularly beneficial for upper lip region, this unique injectable can produce nearly-permanent rejuvenation results after just a few, relatively quick treatments. Composed of a polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microsphere solution, Artefill® works to stimulate the production of new collagen in the skin over an extended period of time. This means that in addition to revitalizing your skin, Artefill® can also help you maintain more youthful-looking skin for many years to come through the continuous promotion of natural collagen production. Should you be interested in Artefill®, Dr. Kalus will need to conduct a skin test one month prior to treatment in order to detect any allergic reactions and ensure the most effective results possible.

Skin Care

Dr. Kalus will discuss a customized skin care treatment plan with you that is specific to your skin type. In addition, IPL Photorejuvenation treatments can be performed with the Acleara (formerly known as “Aesthera”) system. This modality can be used not only for facial rejuvenation with no downtime or recovery, but also to treat sun damaged skin, sunspots, rosacea, spider veins, and even acne.
