For far too long, the cosmetic skin care industry has appeared to have been built solely around women. But the fact is that, while women are a big part of the skincare market, they are far from the only demographic. Men are starting to pay an increasing amount of attention to the quality and health of their skin, and they are even turning to cosmetic and spa procedures to achieve a younger-looking appearance. Just like women, men’s skin suffers from the harsh elements and the ravages of time. Sun damage, aging, environmental factors, diet, smoking, and genetics all factor into the quality of one’s skin. The good news is that when your complexion is looking tired, there are spa treatments that can help men reclaim their youthful glow.
Common Male Skin Concerns
Dry skin is a common concern for men who spend a lot of time outdoors in the harsh elements. Not only is dry skin uncomfortable, but it can also lead to premature aging and fine lines. Facials such as the HydraFacial MD® Elite can restore moisture and hydration to the skin so that it both looks and feels refreshed and rejuvenated.
Although we are all brought up to believe that acne will go away once we pass our teenage years, we soon find out that this statement is anything but true. Many men experience acne flare-ups far beyond their adolescent years. Stress, sweating, genetics, diet, and pore size all contribute to acne and the discomfort it brings. Spa treatments such as the Active Pureness Facial helps fight acne by calming irritated skin and purifying the pores.
Razor burn is a common issue for many men. Our Gentleman’s Facial soothes facial skin that is suffering from razor burn. This relaxing treatment helps to calm inflamed skin, diffuse redness, and refine pores.
Fine lines and wrinkles appear on every man with time and age. Unfortunately, external factors such as sun damage, diet, and smoking can make these signs of aging even more pronounced. Facials such as the HydraFacial MD® Elite, radiofrequency laser treatments such as Pellevé®, and injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic are all great options for improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These treatments can smooth moderate to severe forehead lines, frown lines between the brows, and crow’s feet to take years off a man’s appearance. Injectable facial fillers can also be used if necessary.
Broken capillaries often appear as web-like red marks on the cheeks and around the nose. These broken capillaries can affect the tone and texture of the skin and can lead to an undesirable appearance. Laser treatments such as the IPL/Photofacial or the CUTERA® excel V™ Laser address the facial redness caused by broken capillaries to improve and even out a man’s complexion and skin tone.
