Aesthetic treatments for men they never knew they needed
It’s a fact that men these days are paying more attention to their appearance, and we’re not just stopping at the way they dress themselves. Men-specific skincare range has been on the rise and are now even including makeup and aesthetic treatments in the growing list.
And why not? Men can surely benefit from aesthetic treatments to look and feel better in their skin, be it improved skin texture or lessened wrinkles.
However unlike women, men prefer treatments with low to zero downtime and most would agree they have would prefer as little pain as possible. Here are the top 4 concerns among men and the treatments they can opt for.
Men, like women, aren’t spared from deep lines and wrinkles as they get older. Deep lines on the face, particularly frown lines can make one appear older and / or sterner than they really mean to be.
A quick and effective remedy would be to get a few shots of anti-wrinkle injections. These help to erase deep lines by relaxing the muscles, preventing these muscles from contracting and creating wrinkles. The treatment is quick, usually without even requiring any numbing cream and takes approximately five to seven days to appreciate the full results, without any downtime.
#2 Acne scars
You may have noticed that deep acne scars are somehow more prevalent among men and you aren’t wrong to make that observation. Acne that developed in adolescent years tend to develop into permanent, deep scars.
Thankfully there are laser treatments that specialise in regenerating the skin, improving one’s skin texture.
Fraxel Dual is a popular option when it comes to improving one’s skin, thanks to its two-in-one duo wavelengths (1550nm and 1927nm) laser system which can be used together or separately, depending on your needs.
The 1550nm wavelength in particular is effective in rebuilding collagen, reducing the appearance of acne scars and deep lines, improving the overall quality of one’s skin.
#3 Hair Loss
Hair loss is another concern that seems to plague men more than women. It’s not uncommon for hair to become thinner as one gets older, no thanks to hormonal changes in the body.
One of the popular hair recovery treatments is Revage 670, a painless FDA-approved low-level laser treatment to restore and rejuvenate thinning hair.
This laser treatment contains 30 laser diodes that rotate 180 degrees around the scalp, emitting cool laser energy that works by stimulating blood flow to the hair follicles that lie just below the treated area of the scalp. This then encourages the dormant hair follicles to get into the active growth phase, resulting in thicker, more durable hair shafts.
#4 Hair Removal
If only we could take the hair we don’t want and replace it onto the areas where we want more hair. Men are sometimes faced with this tricky situation with undesired hair growth on their bodies, such as their backs.
Laser hair removal is a permanent reduction of unwanted hair and can be used on any part of the body, for any hair profiles.
At SW1 clinic, our doctors use the Candela G-Max permanent hair removal system uses laser energy to destroy the hair follicles, effectively ridding your bodies (or faces) of unwanted hair with little pain and almost no downtime.
Say goodbye to waxing and shaving for good!
