Today men think about cosmetic dermatology as a form of self- enhancement just like working out, eating well and dressing well. Youth and beauty are prized in our culture. Looking young and fit is an asset any time, and especially when you are competing in the work place.
Pure Dermatology & Cosmetic Center in Newport Beach, Ca offers many self-enhancement procedures that are noninvasive, because studies show time and again that looking good is a big factor in feeling good. And we understand you are looking for quick, lasting results.
Love Handles and Belly Fat
CoolSculpting can help you get rid of your love handles and belly fat by freezing the fat. The CoolSculpting applicator, when applied to the areas to be treated, uses vacuum pressure to target the fat cells. You will initially feel the cold for about 5 minutes and then the area will become numb. The fat cells are frozen and eliminated naturally by your body. Only the fat cells are destroyed. You can expect about a 20-30% improvement in the bulges treated. If you are in good shape and work out, but still have trouble spots, this is the best treatment for you.

Deep Forehead Grooves (Brotox)
Botox is the answer – or as we call it here – “Brotox”. Those deep grooves are caused by the action of the muscles of expression. As we age, these grooves stay put, even when we aren’t frowning or wrinkling our foreheads. Botox injected into the muscles that caused the grooves freezes the muscles so that those lines flatten and often disappear.

Do you wear a hat or baseball cap all the time to hide your balding pate? Tried temporary tactics to boost your confidence? We understand that hair loss has a significant impact on self-esteem and confidence. Currently treatment options are limited. The American Academy of Dermatology states that about 50 million men in the U.S. have hereditary hair loss. You are not alone.
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP may be the non-surgical solution you’ve been dreaming of. A small amount of blood is taken from your arm. The blood is spinned down so that the platelets are concentrated and full of growth factors and stem cells. When injected into the treatment areas they stimulate hair follicles to grow hair. If you have thinning hair, the treatments can be applied to thicken your hair. It may take up to 6 months to see results. The main purpose of PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive hair follicles to enter the active growth phase, and enhance blood supply to the scalp which will support new hair growth. There is no downtime and minimal side effects. It works on bald spots and receding hair lines too. It’s safe and quick with no downtime. And PRP is great for acne scars, and skin rejuvenation.

Wrinkles and Sun Spots
Laser skin resurfacing will help you, not only get rid of wrinkles and sun spots, but will also tighten your skin. The laser generates heat which causes damage that stimulates collagen growth. After the treatment your skin will be rough and scaly but that will slough off. You will look like you have a sun burn. When you have healed, your new skin will be smooth and wrinkle free.
Time Commitment: 40 minutes up to two hours, depending on the extent of treatment
Botox is safe and effective for excessive sweating. It works by blocking nerve signals that go to glands that make sweat. One treatment can reduce sweating for 6-8 months.

Time commitment: 15-30 minutes.
Under Eye Bags and Hollows
Are you tired of people commenting that you look tired? Dermal fillers like Juvederm® and Voluma® are injectables that provide immediate results. The fillers will last about 6-24 months. So if you like the results, you will need to go back every six months to 2 years to maintain your new appearance. We also perform PRP injections to the under eye bags for a natural alternative to fillers. Dermal fillers are also available for wrinkles, lines and grooves, and acne scars.
Time commitment: 20 minutes.
