There is a growing trend with dermatologists and other skincare practitioners, reporting that they are seeing a rise in the number of men requesting chemical peels.
Most men want to put their best face forward for two reasons: to look good, and stay competitive in the job market.
Men will exercise and dress in current fashion, but sometimes the condition of their skin can reveal their true age. Whether it’s brown spots, wrinkles or facial sagging, men’s skin treatment options are the same as women’s.
Chemical Peels such as, Glycolic peels, Salicylic peel and Lactic peels can vary in strengths, with little to no downtime and be increased to the maximum with moderate downtime and peeling. Depending on what you want to achieve – a clearer complexion, smoother skin, there is a perfect peel to suit your needs.
Microdermabrasion is a power-driven peel that exfoliates the skin using micro-fine aluminum oxide crystals. These crystals break up dead skin cells, which are simultaneously vacuumed into sterile containers.
Other treatment options may include Botox, Dermal Fillers, Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, Micro-needling, IPL (photo-rejuvenation) and Laser Hair Removal.
Another top rated cosmetic procedure for men is laser hair removal to target unwanted hair on the chest and back. Unlike other methods such as waxing, this approach is typically permanent, which is especially advantageous to men as well as women.
Some men are prone to sun damage and broken capillaries on their faces, especially around the nose and cheek area. An effective treatment for these concerns would be IPL also known as photo-facial or photo rejuvenation.
IPL uses a non-ablative light based laser that specifically targets broken capillaries, sun damage (brown spots) and collagen production.
Micro-needling also known as skin-needling has become a popular treatment for men as well. Micro-needling is used to reduce skin wrinkling, improve open pores, stretch marks, improving skin texture on the face and neck while improving acne and chicken pox scarring. Micro-needling has been long known for stimulating hair growth in men as well making this procedure a go to for thinning hair.
Once highly in demand among women, men are no longer shy about making changes to their appearance with the help of a little science. There are so many proven anti-aging treatments on the market that just about anyone can find a procedure that addresses their particular cosmetic concern without feeling like it’s “too invasive.”
