Cosmetic dermatologists in Englewood CO help men maintain their competitive edge

There was once a time when our level of experience shown on paper was all that was needed to keep us in the running professionally. Today, on both the social and professional fronts, both men and women are finding that appearances count for much more than they used to. The difference between the sexes, however, is that women have long seemed more comfortable in seeking cosmetic treatment, such as those offered by the dermatologists in our Englewood and Lone Tree CO offices.

In recent years, men have begun to discover the immense benefits that come from cosmetic dermatology treatments like Botox or dermal fillers, even laser treatments. For these men, they find their rejuvenated appearance to be an integral step in maintaining success in the highly competitive market we live in today.

Similar to women, our male patients report feeling as though they woke up one day to find wrinkles had formed on once-smooth skin. They further report that looking good is a large part of what keeps them on top in both their social and professional dealings, with treatments from the cosmetic dermatologists in AboutSkin’s Englewood or Lone Tree CO office making them look younger than they really are.

What was once a closely held secret by most men, “Brotox” is now a term that you may hear on the news or read in magazine stories. Fortunately, there is no negative connotation related to undergoing cosmetic treatments today, with a good number of older men now reaching for new ways to go head to head with job applicants years younger than they are.

Image consultants have stated for years that first impressions are highly important in procuring a new job, getting a promotion, or even growing a business. Men have found enhancing their image a bit more challenging than women, who can easily change their look with a new hairstyle or updated clothing that is on-trend. Men of a certain age have had limited options for enhancing their appearance in the past, but today, all that is needed is a visit to our Englewood practice for a cosmetic consultation.

Undergoing cosmetic treatments such as Botox, dermal fillers, or laser treatments is ideal for the man who wishes to rejuvenate his appearance. Our non-invasive treatments allow you to look like your best self, not some dramatically altered version of you with too-tight skin.

Keep your competitive edge and boost your confidence. Contact us for your dermatology consultation today.

Services offered

At AboutSkin Dermatology and DermSurgery, PC, Dr. Joel Cohen and Dr. Michael Contreras and their team of board-certified Dermatologists are dedicated to helping patients maintain the health, wellness, and appearance of their natural skin, hair, and nails. AboutSkin offers the cutting-edge technology needed to allow patients to improve their self-confidence. There are numerous services provided at AboutSkin, a dermatology practice located in the Denver area, which serves patients in and around the cities of Englewood and Lone Tree, Colorado.

Skin Cancer Treatment

When skin cancer has been diagnosed, patients are encouraged to ask their physician whether Mohs micrographic surgery is indicated to remove all of the cancerous skin cells; this procedure has a success rate up to 99%.

Neuromodulators

Injectable neuromodulators can be used to inhibit muscle contractions and reduce wrinkles, such as the frown lines and crow’s feet. Popular neuromodulators used in our practice include Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. AboutSkin MDs perform these injections.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers add volume to fine lines and wrinkles to reduce their appearance. Most are made of hyaluronic acid, and others can stimulate collagen production for longer-lasting results. Some of the popular dermal fillers used in our practice are Juvéderm, Voluma, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, Sculptra, and Belotero. AboutSkin MDs perform these injections.

Lasers

Laser therapy is a wonderful way to improve the texture, tone, and appearance of the skin. AboutSkin MDs perform the more aggressive laser procedures.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are used to assist patients with concerns such as melasma, acne, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. They are done in our office and vary from mild to aggressive in strength, depending on the severity of the conditions treated and the needs of the patient.

Sclerotherapy

Spider veins on the legs can be unsightly. Thankfully, sclerotherapy can be used to close up abnormal, visible veins and redirect blood flow to healthy ones. Using an injectable solution, Dr. Contreras can assist patients in removing these veins and improving their appearance.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure available through AboutSkin and is performed by the Aesthetician. Patients can enjoy permanent hair reduction in treatment areas over time. This treatment can be used anywhere on the body, but is commonly used under the arms, on the chest, back, face, legs, and bikini line.

Other services available in our practice include photodynamic therapy, medical grade microdermabrasion (SilkPeel, DermaSweep), and skin tightening. Our team can help you choose the right treatments for you! Contact us today to schedule a consultation visit.

Handling skin cancer with your dermatologist in Lone Tree

As the largest organ of the body, the skin is constantly exposed to various elements every day. Some of what our skin endures poses a threat to our health. As much as you might love spending time in the beautiful outdoor areas of Colorado, skin cancer is a condition that should always be considered. As many as one out of every five people in America will develop some form of skin cancer during his or her lifetime. While not all skin cancers are deadly, treatment for these abnormal skin lesions is an important aspect of staying as healthy as possible.

When a skin cancer diagnosis has been given, the first consideration is the optimal form of treatment. Dr. Cohen, Dr. Contreras, Dr. Stoler and Dr. Ho are your dermatologists in Lone Tree, also with a practice in Englewood, for the advanced treatment of skin cancers. At AboutSkin Dermatology, we approach treatment with Mohs skin cancer surgery, in which Dr. Cohen is FULL fellowship-trained – -a member of a small handful of dermatologists who have completed the arduous additional training of the American College of Mohs Surgery. Today, he performs this surgery in our state-of-the-art facilities, and he shares his extensive knowledge with peers through published works covering Mohs and reconstruction after skin cancer treatment.

Mohs skin cancer surgery has been effectively practiced by innovative physicians for more than half a century, with some additional updates in technology over the more recent years. The treatment is designed to accurately remove and examine cancerous tumors and lesions, using a method different from the standard surgical excision’s bread-loaf slicing of tissue. Because of its precise technique, Mohs analyzes the complete margin (and not just bread-loaf slices which can more likely miss intervening tumor) and preserving the highest degree of surrounding, healthy tissue. Only with this procedure, can your Mohs surgeon examine 100 percent of the margins and immediately assess removed tissue under a microscope.

Mohs boasts a 99 percent cure rate for most newly developed cancers, and is highly successful in the removal of recurring cancers, making it a viable solution for those who have undergone previous cancer treatment. In many cases, necessary reconstruction can be performed the same day. Dr. Cohen has served on many dermatologic surgical committees and boards over the years, and has performed over 5,000 Mohs surgeries. He is a leader in the field of dermatologic surgery, and lectures internationally on this topic as well as aesthetic dermatology and laser procedures. He has even lectured at the US Armed Forces “Wounded Warrior” course on using lasers to treat scars. And, he is currently finishing editing a textbook on reconstruction of skin cancer defects along with two other internationally-recognized Mohs surgeons.

Hearing the diagnosis “skin cancer” can cause feelings of great fear. The highest percentage of skin cancers, however, is non-malignant. In caring, experienced hands of Dr. Cohen, early-detected skin cancers can be treated successfully. To keep skin as healthy as possible, wear sunscreen on a daily basis, and visit your dermatologist in Lone Tree for regular skin assessments.

Don’t feel anxious over skin cancer. Protect yourself through information and healthy practices, and contact us for early detection and treatment.
