While traditionally considered a feminine practice, facial treatments and injections are becoming more prevalent throughout the male community. Until recently, the male population has not been as purposeful with their skincare regimen as women, frequently using cleanser not specially designed for the face, skipping moisturizer, and forgoing the sunscreen entirely. Men’s skin care is often an afterthought if it is taken into consideration at all.
Regardless of your gender identity, we are all exposed to pollution, dirt, dust, harmful UV rays, and more. Our skin is the largest organ in our body, and it deserves to be treated with care. Our goal is to provide services to achieve each unique patient’s skin care goals.
Facial treatments do more than just pamper the patient. Facial treatments can:
· Reverse visible signs of aging
· Prevent acne breakouts
· Diminish or remove acne scars
· Reverse sun damage
· Increase blood circulation for healthier skin
Here are our favorite treatments for men.
Top Five Treatments for Men
Primarily done on the face and neck, Laser Genesis is a non-invasive procedure that uses a near-infrared (NIR) Nd:YAG laser to gently increase the temperature of the skin. NIR irradiation stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. It can heal and prevent acne breakouts, reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pores, smooth skin, and even out dark spots.
Dermal fillers are minimally invasive treatments made of a gel-like solutions. They are injected into your skin to add fullness and volume to certain areas of the face. They also work to diminish the appearance of fine lines and can even be used to enhance facial features like the chin, and overall facial structure.
Botox, or Botulinum toxin type A, is essentially a muscle relaxer that is injected directly into the muscle being treated. Botox is effective at correcting “dynamic wrinkles” which are formed by facial movements. Botox injections relax the muscles being treated, preventing them from creasing the skin and forming a wrinkle above the muscle.
The JetPeel™ facial is a non-invasive, painless procedure that uses pressurized streams of air, serums, and solutions to combat a variety of different cosmetic concerns and better yet, it requires absolutely no down time. JetPeel™ Facials are a great choice for ALL skin types. It effectively treats texture issues, oily and congested pores, acne and blackheads, sun damage, dark circles, dry skin, uneven skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment often used to reduce the signs of aging and the visibility of scars by stimulating collagen production. A microneedling pen is used to prick the skin with, you guessed it, microneedles, creating hundreds of tiny holes in the skin! The tiny pricks do two things: 1) they send your skin into healing mode, which then generates fresh collagen and elastin during the healing process. This reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, scars, and more, and 2) the little holes from the needles create channels into your skin that allow skincare products and solutions (like PRP) to penetrate deeper into your skin, delivering more powerful results.
In addition, we always recommend professional skin care products for all our patients to maintain their healthy skin and protect it in between office visits. Call our office with any questions or book a consultation online.
