In a modern world that values freshness and youth, more men than ever before are seeking skin rejuvenation procedures. From facials to injectables, the stigma surrounding cosmetic services for men is quickly falling away. Instead, clinics and clients are working together to find treatment options that brighten, tighten, and refresh.
Facials aren’t just a special treat for a girl’s day out anymore. Men now make up 47% of spa-goers, according to a study from the International Spa Association. Spas and clinics are creating treatments specially formulated for the unique skin problems that men face, like razor burn and dryness.
Your HydraFacial includes cleansing and gentle exfoliation, extraction of oils/debris while adding hydration and infusing the skin with antioxidants and peptides. The Hydrafacial treatment is gentle enough for all skin types. Additional treatments can be added depending on the concerns that you discuss with your dermatologist; a skin care expert.
One thing to keep in mind: It’s usually better to receive your facial in the morning as increasing beard stubble throughout the day can cause irritation to your skin.
Men make up about 6% of all Botox patients, up 397% of the 2000 average. This huge jump stems from the versatile and minimally invasive nature of Botox procedures.
Botox has been proven to treat an array of issues, from excess sweating and muscle spasms to migraines. Botox works by temporarily inhibiting the nerves and muscles in the face where it is injected. When these muscles can’t move, they can’t crinkle or wrinkle.
The most popular use of Botox is for treatment of facial wrinkles caused by muscle movement (dynamic rhytides) that combat the most common signs of aging in both men and women.
A common fear for men seeking Botox treatments is looking “overdone.” With an experienced provider, such as your dermatologist, you can get incredible results without that tell-tale “plastic-y” look.
As skin shows its age, dermal fillers can plump, tighten and tone. Men and women both experience the loss of volume along with the breakdown of collagen and the loss of fat cell integrity as they age, leading to skin that looks saggy and gaunt. Dermal fillers work to fill in these spaces with gel-like substances that restore facial volume.
While they work well with wrinkles, they can also make your lips fuller, your smile lines disappear, and grant you an overall boost to your confidence. Most men won’t believe their eyes when they look in the mirror and see themselves looking 10 years younger than they did when they walked in. With no downtime and instant results, dermal fillers are a fast and easy way for men to regain their vibrance and youth.
Chemical peels have become very popular among men as they help improve skin texture, radiance and reduce discoloration, fine line and wrinkles and help reduce irritation from shaving and razor bumps. Chemical peels produce little or no down time and can be performed over the lunch hour. Chemical peels remove dead, dull skin to provide a healthy radiance and confidence to the client.
