Hair loss treatments, wrinkle injections incl 'Botox' & dermal fillers for men
Men experience the effects of ageing on their skin and body just as much as women do, if not more. Sun damage, wrinkles, scarring and hair loss are the main issues that affect men, yet most clinics and treatments have traditionally been geared towards women.
Men's skin and facial structures are very different to female's, they have more prominent facial bones, different facial ratios, muscle mass, subcutaneous fat, skin thickness, sebaceous gland activity and obviously different hormones. As a result, men require specialist aesthetics knowledge and experience when being treated, in order to prevent 'face feminisation' and 'pillow face' side effect.
Genetics, metabolic processes, hormones and the environment all contribute to skin ageing, eventually altering the appearance, structure and function of the skin. This, together with traditionally poor use of sun protection creams by men, means that men often develop winkles at an earlier age than women and their wrinkles are often more prominent with greater volume loss to females.
Dr. Paulina is a qualified medical GP and has advanced aesthetics training from California which is at the forefront of the latest aesthetic innovations which includes male anti-ageing treatment and hair loss treatments. With her unique background, she has a deeper understanding of the anatomical and physiological gender differences in ageing and skin conditions.
From her clinic in Sevenoaks, she offers the following anti-ageing and aesthetic treatments that have been designed specifically with the male skin and body in mind.
At her clinic in Sevenoaks, Dr. Paulina offers Dermapen™ microneedling hair loss treatment which triggers skin's own healing mechanisms to regenerate hair follicle cells and promote hair regrowth together with mesotherapy.
Mesotherapy is a treatment where hair nutrition and growth factors are 'needled' into the scalp where the hair follicles are, in order to encourages hair to regrow naturally.
This can also be a very good hair loss prevention treatment in itself and will improve the quality of the existing hair. This is a more gradual process than overnight transplant surgery, but that makes it a more discreet treatment, without drawing attention to your hair.
This revolutionary micro-needling technique can also be used to treat other conditions such as the scars that can remain after acne or burns or surgery, stimulating new cell growth to replace the damaged tissue or to rejuvenate facial skin.

Having less fatty tissue in the face as well as thicker skin texture and more prominent facial muscle structure means that when men age they tend to have deeper and more severe facial wrinkles, frown lines or crow's feet.
The most effective way to treat this and reduce the deep lines on your face is to combine a series of botulinum toxin injections (commonly known as "Botox") with dermal filler treatments that have been carefully designed for your precise facial structure and skin.

Men's facial skin produces more sebum (oil) and sweat than women and has a thicker, coarser texture. This means that men tend to have to bigger facial pores and a more uneven skin texture than women. Additionally, because as a man you are often more likely to be exposed to damaging sunlight and other environmental factors, your skin ages quicker and is more prone to pigmentation.
Chemical peels specifically prepared to suit your skin texture are a great way to rejuvenate your skin and counteract the negative effects of sun exposure and age. Combined with topical applications of our world-leading ZO Skin Health prescription-only advanced skincare that has been carefully selected for your skin type, this is a simple and non-invasive way to revitalise the condition of your skin and maintain a smoother complexion and more youthful appearance.
