The doctors at Plastic Surgery Associates of Santa Rosa have noticed in recent months that more men are coming to their practice interested in cosmetic treatments such as Fraxel® for conditions such as sun damage and skin aging.
Santa Rosa, California (December 2010) – Dr. Heather Furnas and Dr. Francisco Canales of Plastic Surgery Associates have noticed an increase in male patients at their Napa area plastic surgery practice. With non-invasive treatments such as Fraxel® for common conditions such as aging and sun damage, more men are becoming interested in improving their appearance. “While a large portion of our patients continue to be women, lately we have been noticing that more men are coming to our practice,” says Dr. Furnas. “This may be because more men are caring about their appearance, or that there are more minimally invasive procedures being offered. Less invasive treatments are less of a commitment and make it easier for our male patients to see if they like the benefits a cosmetic treatment can provide.” At Plastic Surgery Associates, Drs. Canales and Furnas offer cosmetic services including breast enhancement, facial sculpting, and body contouring procedures. Those interested in a Napa area tummy tuck can improve the appearance of their abdominal region, and also enhance their overall body contour. Plastic Surgery Associates also offers medical spa services, helping patients combat the appearance of skin aging. Dr. Canales says, “Both men and women have the option of easily rejuvenating and refreshing their appearance. With advances in both plastic surgery procedures as well as minimally invasive approaches, cosmetic enhancement has become easier than ever. Men who are thinking about a facelift or liposuction in Marin, Sonoma or Napa should feel comfortable taking the next step and coming in for a consultation.” One procedure that’s sure to become popular among both men and women is Ultherapy™ Skin Tightening, a non-surgical way to tighten the skin and promote collagen growth. It is considered a non-surgical facelift, as it can tighten and tone the skin for a lifted appearance. The treatment only takes around 30 minutes, and patients are able to return to work immediately after. “I’ve seen many men benefit greatly from Ultherapy,” adds Dr. Canales. “It is extremely helpful for loose, lax skin. The best part about this treatment is that it allows your body to regenerate collagen immediately after the treatment. We look forward to helping all of our patients achieve the look they’ve always wanted.” To stop in for a cosmetic consultation appointment, call Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas today at(707) 537-2111 to request your consultation.
