Services For Men Scottsdale, AZ
Our office is now offering a treatment for your double chin! Recently approved by the FDA, Kybella™ (deoxycholic acid) injection, contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as "double chin."
Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. According to a survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many consumers are bothered by submental fullness (68%) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (71%).
When injected into subcutaneous fat, Kybella™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and formation of small areas of firmness around the treatment area. Kybella™ can cause serious side effects, including trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.
miraDry® Sweat Reduction
Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is a condition that often causes men to feel awkward and self-conscious, especially during social situations. Men may experience excessive sweating on their hands, feet, armpits, face and genital area or over their entire body. The skin may become white and wrinkled or red and irritated as a result of the constant moisture, and may develop an odor as well.
Come in today to learn more about this high-tech new procedure that offers an FDA-approved and long-lasting solution to anyone who wants to dramatically reduce their sweating and dependence on chemical antiperspirants.* Using precisely controlled electromagnetic energy, this breakthrough procedure eliminates targeted underarm sweat glands, unlike other procedures such as BOTOX and antiperspirants, which only temporarily disable the sweat glands and require frequent repeat treatments to maintain effectiveness. Unlike surgery or other more invasive treatments, miraSmooth® patients experience little pain because the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, with most people experiencing only some pressure and light pulling on the skin, with some sensations of warmth. Most important, patients can expect instant results (average underarm sweating reduction of 82-percent, according to a clinical study*) with minimal to no downtime.
The procedure itself usually takes about an hour, and a second procedure may be recommended, three months apart, to maximize the quality and duration of results. Even better, the miraSmooth procedure has a 98-percent approval rating on RealSelf.com, the world's largest community for reviewing, learning and sharing information about cosmetic surgery, dermatology and other elective treatments.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is just as helpful for men as it is for women. In fact, hundreds of thousands of BOTOX procedures are performed annually on men. It is effective for reducing lines and wrinkles all over the face, but the most popular areas of treatment for men are between the eyebrows and across the forehead. Men can benefit from BOTOX's ability to help them look relaxed and younger, whether you want to look your best for business meetings or social purposes. Even men in their 30s and 40s can have noticeable furrows from smiling, frowning and other facial movements. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired.
Quick, safe and effective, BOTOX reduces facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months with no downtime and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX treatments can not only prevent these lines from deepening, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking refreshed.
When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. Cosmetic fillers can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.
Cosmetic fillers are FDA-approved and safe for use by most patients. Many of the fillers are made from substances found naturally in the body, or synthetically made to mimic natural substances or stimulate collagen production. These fillers are injected directly into the skin of the targeted area to restore volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At Van Dyke Laser & Skin, we offer patients several different soft tissue filler options in order to provide the best possible results for their individual needs, including:
- JUVÉDERM Voluma® XC
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra, Ultra Plus
- Restylane® / Perlane®
- Belotero Balance®
- Sculptra® Aesthetic
Active FX, Deep FX and Total FX
Active FX is the gold standard in laser resurfacing. It can dramatically improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, dark spots, and other irregularities on the face, neck and chest. By removing sun damage with fractional technology, it stimulates the formation of new and healthy skin and new collagen. This provides greater elasticity and support which results in more youthful, firmer, tighter skin. Your skin will not only look healthier, but it will be healthier. Significant results are seen with just one treatment and compared to older CO2 lasers, Active FX has much less downtime and aftercare. In one week you can see incredible results that used to take 3 or more weeks of healing!
For those looking to go a little deeper, Deep FX is another option in CO2 laser resurfacing that penetrates to the lower part of the collagen layer to repair deep lines and wrinkles, acne scars and scars from surgery or trauma. Effective as a standalone treatment, Deep FX can also work in combination with Active FX (referred to as Total FX) to achieve optimal results.
The new FRAXEL RE:STORE DUAL is an improvement on the gold standard non-ablative laser FRAXEL. Solta Medical has now paired the deep penetrating Erbium fiber laser (1550nm) with the superficial Thulium fiber laser (1927nm). People suffering from pigmentation irregularities have a new more effective option for treatment.

Clear + Brilliant®
Whenever you go outside, you make sure to apply sunscreen. You try to eat whole foods and follow a healthy diet. You get plenty of exercise. You use various skin treatments and have the occasional facial.
You're young, but wonder if there is anything else you can do to stall the inevitable signs of aging from showing on your face. The answer is yes — Clear + Brilliant® laser treatments at Van Dyke Aesthetics.
In contrast to more aggressive Fraxel laser treatments, Clear +Brilliant is a gentle laser that refreshes the skin from within. The laser energy is directed at target areas on the face where the laser energy creates millions of microscopic holes in the upper layers of the skin. The body reacts to these perceived injuries by replacing the damaged skin with new, younger-looking tissue.
Clear + Brilliant addresses an unmet need in skin care, lying somewhere between over-the-counter or spa treatments and more aggressive treatments such as Fraxel.
With Clear + Brilliant there is no downtime, and the best results are achieved after four treatments spaced one week apart.
