Welcome to AYA Medical Spa’s March edition of Beauty Buzz! This newsletter is focused on mens’ aesthetic treatments, Juvéderm for under eyes, and our skincare product of the moment.
JUVÉDERM For Under Eye Hollows
JUVÉDERM has received FDA approval for the improvement of infraorbital (under eye) hollows in adults over the age of 21. According to clinical trial data, 90% of subjects reported satisfaction through one year after treatment.
The undereye area is one of the most frequently requested treatment sites among patients, regardless of race and ethnicity, but it is underrated. The characteristics of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC with lower amounts of hyaluronic acid molecules and low water affinity provide a soft, smooth formulation appropriate for treating undereye hollows.
We’re excited to offer JUVÉDERM for under-eye hollows at AYA Medical Spa.
Debunking The Stigma For Men’s Aesthetic Treatments
By Jessica Brooks, MSN, APRN, FNP-C
Myth: Men can’t benefit from aesthetic treatments. It is a common misconception that only women can benefit from the various treatments that we offer.
Anyone who has skin and is aging should be prioritizing their skincare regimen. This begins with your at-home skincare routine and spills over into your treatment plan in our office. Therefore, we will look at a few treatments that men most commonly participate in to debunk the stigma behind men’s aesthetic treatments.
Myth: Botox/Dysport will make me look fake, frozen, or have spocked eyebrows.
Neurotoxins target dynamic muscle movement that over repetitive movement leads to deep facial lines and wrinkles. While we can elevate the brow as we commonly do for women, the treatment plans and goals for men are much different. We strive to cater to each treatment plan to the individual to achieve their goals. Because we individualize each treatment plan, we are able to provide a natural look by adjusting the number of units you may need.
Myth: Facial filler will make me look more feminine.
Facial fillers are used to address facial volume loss that naturally occurs with aging. Therefore, if you are aging, you are likely a good candidate for filler. Yes, that means men can benefit from addressing their volume loss with facial fillers. An experienced injector will assess your face and tailor your injections to enhance your masculine features and achieve a more youthful look.
Myth: I don’t need BOTOX or filler, therefore I don’t need any aesthetic treatments.
First, if you are older than 30, you likely could benefit from BOTOX injections to prevent further aging. Secondly, if you are not ready to take the plunge into BOTOX or facial fillers, we offer several other treatment modalities for which men are great candidates, including laser hair removal, PRP for hair loss, facial rejuvenation, microneedling, and laser therapy for sun damage and skin aging. The truth is men age just like women, therefore we can all benefit from a customized consultation to identify and address skincare concerns.

“I’m obsessed with the TNS Advanced + Serum! I use it every moring and feel like it keeps me glowing in between treatments at AYA. I even use the TNS eye cream with it and love the combo!”
