Men’s Skin Care: Top Treatments and Products
02 Jun 2022
the aging process of male skin is significantly slower than a woman’s due to collagen density, but lack of PROPER SKIN CARE may negate the benefit of slow intriNSic aging.
It’s obvious that the skin of men and women are not the same. Healthy skin is the key to a youthful look, no matter your gender. Due to a higher level of testosterone, men’s skin tends to be about 20-25% thicker than a woman’s, produces about twice as much sebum (oil), and tend to have a larger pore size which may make them more prone to acne. Although facial hair is prevalent in both men and women, men’s facial hair tends to be thick and coarse, leading them to shave more often which can lead to dryness and irritation. The aging process for men does occur substantially slower, and it is said that a woman’s skin is about 15 years older than the skin of a man the same age. But due to lack of skin care and protection against UV damage and environmental factors, that “15 year difference” may go unnoticed.
Do men get medispa treatments these days? Absolutely. According to a recent American Med Spa Association Survey (AmSpa), the amount of men that will be taking advantage of medical spa treatments will triple in the next coming years. This is directly correlated to millennial men between the ages of 18 and 34 being more aware of their skin health and appearance. At SKN BAR Rx, we compiled a list of our most popular treatments and products for men.
TOP MEDISPA TREATMENTS FOR MEN
Great for acne scarring, tone and texture rejuvenation, and helps to correct dark spots and pigmentation. PRP can be added for boosted benefits of microneedling, but can used as an injectable to stimulate and increase hair growth.
A favorite treatment for male patients because it effectively exfoliates the skin, suctions debris, and minimizes pore size. It is a great treatment for all skin types and textures, and provides an immediate same day healthy glow.
3. HAIR REDUCTION
Laser Hair Removal is a great treatment for permanent reduction hair growth. Popular areas to treat for men include the face, neck, back and chest. It cheaper and less time consuming than shaving and waxing, and promotes healthier, smoother skin.
4. BOTOX AND FILLERS
“Brotox” is becoming more popular as more men are looking for non-invasive anti-aging options. The main goal of injectables for men is to correct or enhance what already exists rather than dramatically changing the face. Botox is used for expression lines around the eyes, brows and forehead and filler is used to add volume to the cheeks or jawline.
