Don’t let Father Time Fool You – Aesthetic Treatments are for Men Too!
Whether you’re looking for a subtle change in appearance or a treatment plan to address ongoing concerns, there are many options available for men at Ashtoria. From laser treatments to injections and facials, our services can be tailored to your needs and aesthetic goals.
Botox® for Wrinkle Reduction
Many men are apprehensive about Botox as it has been associated with a “frozen” look. The truth is that Botox injections can provide subtle enhancement without reducing natural expression. Because Botox relaxes muscle tissue, it is often injected between the brows, along the forehead, and/or around the eyes to reduce frown lines and crows feet that develop as a result of repeat facial muscle movement. The injections safely smooth deep lines and prevent additional wrinkle formations when performed on a regular basis (every 3-4 months for most men).
While dermal fillers are commonly used to enhance cheeks and lips in women, they can also be used to replace lost volume in the temples and under eye areas in men. Our Registered Nurses are skillfully trained to place fillers in areas that are best suited for a male face. We believe “less is more” when it comes to filler in a man’s face, so don’t be afraid to consider this effective option!
Laser Resurfacing for the Face
We use the world-renowned Fotona laser system that offers a wide range of therapies, most notably a collection of skin resurfacing treatments that increase collagen production to encourage younger, smoother, and healthier skin. Our gentle skin resurfacing treatments are suitable for all skin tones and require no downtime – meaning you can return to work and daily activities without restriction. Deeper laser treatments, known as Erbium Fractional Laser, are available for light to medium skin tones and can take 5-10 years off the age of your skin in a single session. Fractional Laser has also been shown to reduce precancerous skin cells and reduce the appearance of scars, broken capillaries, skin tags, and other benign skin lesions. Laser skin resurfacing alone can reverse the age of your skin while maintaining full muscle movement and expression for a natural look.
If you’re not quite ready to try laser, filler, or Botox but want to start improving the appearance and health of your skin, a Medical Facial is the best place to begin! This relaxing and non-invasive treatment is performed by a Licensed Medical Esthetician who will customize each facial to your specific skin concerns. Our medical-grade facial can treat and prevent acne, ingrown facial hairs, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and other common skin troubles. Getting a monthly Medical Facial will provide regular exfoliation and hydration to the skin, which is necessary for maintaining its health and integrity. Facials are available in 30 and 60 minute sessions, making them an easy treatment to include in your schedule.

Acne & Scar Reduction
Comprehensive Treatments for Healthier & Smoother Skin
Acne is a common concern among men, as testosterone contributes to slower cell turnover and higher oil production in the skin. While we do not treat acne from a hormonal approach, we do offer several therapies that treat and prevent acne on the surface. These therapies include laser treatments to reduce sebaceous gland activity, medical-grade facials for proper exfoliation and hydration, infrared and blue light applications to calm reactive skin, and medical-grade skincare for ongoing maintenance at home.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea
NightLase® Snoring Treatment
NightLase therapy is a non-invasive, client-friendly laser treatment designed to increase quality of sleep. NightLase reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue. Our patented Er:YAG laser is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide relief from snoring and sleep apnea symptoms.
NightLase is easy to perform and has a high success rate in producing positive change in sleep patterns. It is also a no downtime treatment, so you can return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
Reduce Excessive Sweating
If you suffer from excessive sweating, you may be experiencing Hyperhidrosis. People who experience excessive sweating are often troubled by the discomfort and embarrassment it can cause. Thankfully, symptoms can be relieved by strategically injecting Botox into the underarms, palms, or feet.
While Botox is best known for smoothing wrinkles on the face, it also provides relief for Hyperhidrosis by safely reducing sweat gland activity - helping you stay dry and comfortable throughout your day. Most clients only need a treatment every 6 to 12 months to maintain results.
