Today’s workplace is increasingly competitive, and it’s important for men to look as refreshed and energized as possible. While we all show signs of aging, no one wants to look like they’ve had “work done.” This is why non-surgical facial rejuvenation in Los Angeles has become one of the more popular ways men to begin restoring their youthful appearance.
Non-surgical facial rejuvenation includes a variety of simple techniques such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectable fillers and laser skin resurfacing to eliminate wrinkles, plump up the skin and even reverse sun damage.

Dr. Stoker Explains Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation
One of the first things I tell my patients, regardless of their age, is how important it is to take care of your skin. As early as your 20s, you should begin a daily skin care regimen that includes sunscreen. Most patients are also good candidates for topical treatments that contain Retin-A, one of the most effective skin treatments in the fight against aging.
Unfortunately, even the best prevention can’t stop the natural aging process. Non-surgical facial rejuvenation techniques, when used judiciously, can help restore a natural, younger look.
Educated at some of the most elite institutions in the country, Dr. David Stoker uses his highly advanced knowledge to ensure that each patient achieves beautiful, harmonious results — whether it's through a simple non-surgical procedure or a more advanced surgical transformation.

BOTOX Cosmetic can improve the furrows and wrinkles on your face that make you look older, tired or even angry. It blocks muscle contraction, temporarily weakening the muscles that cause unwanted wrinkles with expression. In Los Angeles, BOTOX is a simple, non-surgical injection that can reduce or eliminate:
Frown lines in between the brows
Crow’s feet near the eyelids
Injectable Fillers in Los Angeles such as JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, RADIESSE® and Sculptra® plump your skin’s appearance to reverse the signs of aging. Collagen is the key component that keeps skin looking youthful. As we age, our natural collagen structure starts to break down and wrinkles begin to appear. Injectable fillers can:
Correct facial wrinkles in the nasolabial folds and the lines that frame the mouth
Fill in lines that form between the eyebrows or under the eyes
Laser Skin Resurfacing removes areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer. I prefer a CO2 laser because it allows me to go as deep as needed based on the thickness of your skin. Typically, I recommend superficial resurfacing for men so the results are more subtle. This technique can be performed on your entire face or on specific regions. It is an excellent way to:
Reverse sun damage
Minimize wrinkles, especially around the mouth and eyes
Treat severe acne scars
For patients who prefer minimal downtime, I generally recommend less intense treatments such as Limelight Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or Laser Genesis treatments as opposed to other laser treatments I offer in Los Angeles.
Most people who are concerned about facial wrinkles, acne scars and sun damage can consider non-surgical facial rejuvenation. During your initial consultation, we will conduct a full examination to determine what is best for you. Many patients choose to combine these techniques with a facelift or eyelid surgery to maximize results.
BOTOX and injectable fillers for Los Angeles men cause only mild discomfort, and a topical anesthetic can be applied to the area being treated, if desired. Both procedures take less than 30 minutes. Patients see full results from BOTOX in about one week, and the benefits last up to 4 months. Results from injectable fillers are instant and last between 3 months and 2 years, depending on the product.
Laser skin resurfacing in Los Angeles involves an anesthetic and usually takes 30 to 60 minutes. Healing time varies depending on the type of laser and depth of treatment. The treatments are recommended with the patient’s desired recovery period in mind.

A small percentage of patients experience soreness and bruising around the injection site. In very rare instances, “drooping” or asymmetry has occurred. Risks associated with laser skin resurfacing include prolonged redness and hyperpigmentation, although these are uncommon as well.
