When you hear “skin care” you may think about women applying eye creams and ensuring all traces of makeup are removed–but skin care is equally important for men. Developing good skin care habits early in life and then adding anti-aging treatments are important for men too! From teenagers addressing acne, to young men needing sun protection to prevent future wrinkles, to middle-aged men concerned with skin tone and texture and beyond—medical-grade skin care is for everyone!
Men’s Skin Care 101
The best men’s skin care starts with the basics: twice daily cleansing and moisturizing (yes, even for oily skin). From there, customize your routine to address sun exposure, dehydration, uneven skin tone or texture, etc. Beyond using powerful, tailored products, our med spa treatments, like photofacials or chemical peels, can improve and refine men’s skin.
Undo Sun Damage
Only 13.7% of men between the ages of 30 and 44 use sunscreen, yet sun damage is a leading contributor to premature aging, wrinkles, and fine lines. Sun spots and other discolorations are also avoidable with sun-smart practices year round .
In addition to sunscreen every day, med spa treatments can address signs of sun damage and aging including:
- Fraxel laser skin resurfacing
- BOTOX® (jokingly called Bro-Tox when it’s used by men)
- Chemical peels
A free med spa consultation can show you which treatments and what products can treat and prevent further sun damage.
Banish Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As you age, your facial skin is less able to spring back into place when you smile or frown. Collagen, which keeps your skin firm and hydrated, is not as abundant after your 20s, leading to the development of wrinkles. Men are excellent candidates for BOTOX to smooth foreheads, crows feet and other fine lines and wrinkles giving a natural, younger-looking appearance. Adding a microneedling series can further improve skin texture by stimulating natural collagen production.
Sculpt Facial Features
Dermal fillers are also excellent for defining facial features–creating a more chiseled jawline, enhancing cheekbones, and more! Facial asymmetry can also be addressed along with deeper lines around the mouth.
