Facial Rejuvenation for Men – San Diego
Confidence and self-pride can get you far in a competitive career path; when moving up in the world is so dependent on strong self-esteem, men and women need to take care of themselves more than ever. Men’s facial rejuvenation has been on the rise in San Diego; with the help of facial rejuvenation, men who look younger and healthier can have a leg up on the competition.
Of course, while more and more men are receiving cosmetic surgery, not everyone is a candidate for a surgical procedure. Some patients have busy schedules that aren’t conducive to long recovery periods, while others don’t like the thought of invasive procedures and painful recoveries. Wearing concealer to hide any incisions is a no-go for many male patients considering facial rejuvenation—and might even draw more attention than desirable! Luckily, treatments like laser systems, dermal fillers, and Botox® for men are allowing a new, innovative way for men to achieve a younger, healthier look without the pain and inconvenience of cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Sayed offers injectables with state-of-the-art formulations and laser treatments that rebuild the skin with cutting-edge technology, but more importantly, his rejuvenation won’t compromise your rugged looks or change your face. You’ll still look like you—just much younger and refreshed.

Men’s Facial Rejuvenation 101
Men’s facial rejuvenation requires an incredible amount of planning and skill; not only is the male anatomy different, but men have their own different set of aesthetics that need to be considered.
Let’s take a look at some important considerations for men’s facial rejuvenation:
- Men often have thicker skin, so they often need a thicker, more viscous dermal filler
- Many men often need higher volumes of injectables – male facial musculature is often more bulky and requires a higher number of Botox® units, for instance
- Men also have a larger, more prominent bone structure
- Men have a prominent ridge above the eyes known as frontal bossing
- Delivery of injectables need to be precise to avoid “chipmunk cheeks” look
- Men may not want to look different, feminized, or softer after their treatment
Our Injectables: Dermal fillers and Botox® for Men
As important the choice of injectable can be, what’s more important is who’s performing it. Instead of suspect medical spas that use any medical professional as injectors, double-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sayed will personally perform your injectable treatments. Because of his extensive experience and mastery of facial anatomy, Dr. Sayed offers advanced injection techniques to create natural results, more comfortable treatment, and results that are long-lasting and reproducible. To help you select the right dermal filler or Botox® for men, Dr. Sayed offers a diverse collection of injectables from which to choose.
Laser Resurfacing and Fraxel for Men
Dr. Sayed is experienced with multiple laser systems, but he’s particularly well-versed with the Fraxel and Sciton laser systems. With our laser systems, Dr. Sayed essentially rebuilds the outer layers of facial skin that are damaged, wrinkled, and discolored—almost like he’s “buffing” down imperfections and then “repaving” or “repainting” the surface of the skin. With Sciton and Fraxel laser treatments for men, Dr. Sayed can reduce the appearance of blemishes and lines while allowing newer skin cells to rebuild and regenerate into younger, fresher looking skin.
Who’s a Candidate for Men’s Facial Rejuvenation?
The ideal candidate for men’s facial rejuvenation is:
- A patient who wants rejuvenation without long downtimes or recoveries
- Someone who wants who wants to treat deep forehead and frown lines, deep lines under the eyes, and nasolabial folds
- A patient who wants to lift and tighten sagging facial skin, remove discolorations, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Someone who has no infections or sunburns in the treatment area and has no allergies to the substances in the injectables
The Recovery for Men’s Facial Rejuvenation
Many of Dr. Sayed’s patients have reported that the treatments for men’s facial rejuvenation feel not only tolerable, but reasonably comfortable. Injectables are delivered with a tiny needle and have local anesthetic in the formula, while laser systems often only require topical anesthesia, depending on the procedure.
Depending on their treatment, men will experience some swelling, bruising, and redness after the procedure. Our male patients typically experience these side effects for a week or so before they dissipate. Results may take longer to finalize after laser therapy, depending on how powerful the treatment is.
These are injectables and laser treatments, so they won’t require significant downtime or recovery periods; however, there are a few precautions you can take to make sure your results last as long as possible. It’s highly recommended that you refrain from undergoing strenuous exercise during the first 24 hours of your recovery. It’s a great way to limit the swelling from laser treatments or prevent the substances in the injectables from being metabolized prematurely. It is also advised that you avoid excessive sun exposure while your skin heals from laser treatments—at this point your skin will be highly sensitive and is more likely to get sunburned, become inflamed, experience discoloration, or even scar. Otherwise, you can return to work or your daily activities within a day or two after the treatment.
