Today, the ideal candidate for facial rejuvenation may just as easily be a man. Reason being, an active lifestyle with exposure to sun and wind can leave skin wrinkled, discoloured, and aged. And in today’s competitive environment, older men need to project vitality. This can add years to your career lifespan. Which is why men also benefit from facial rejuvenation.
On the plus side, men have thicker skin with more hair follicles than women. This allows for quicker healing; which means that men can opt for more aggressive resurfacing procedures.
right resurfacing procedure can leave the skin refreshed with improved skin
tone, texture, colour, pore size, plus reduce the appearance of fine lines and
wrinkles. We achieve this with IPL, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or Dermapen4
Microdermabrasion is primarily aimed at improving skin condition. The treatment reduces fine lines, discolouration and sun damage. With little or no downtime, it’s ideal for a busy professional man with little time to spare.
Fractionated ablative resurfacing is a newer method of ablative resurfacing where skin is removed using a Fraxel CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser. Luckily, enough of the body’s own tissue is spared to allow faster healing with fewer side effects It also can also be used to blend the face and neck, thus avoiding sharp transition zones between treated and untreated skin.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or Photofacial is a broad band light device utilising multiple wavelengths to treat skin tone, texture, colour, pore size, fine lines and wrinkles. Studies show that IPL treatments alter the skin DNA towards a more youthful genomic pattern.
Superficial or deep chemical peels deliver great results. The peels rejuvenate the skin by removing old, dead skin and superficial skin layers. Benefits of chemical peels include improved skin tone, texture, pore size, colour and reducing acne scars.
Microneedling is a time-tested skin rejuvenating procedure. It works through a process of collagen remodelling where new collagen forms in the punctured skin. As such, we recommend a series of treatments for optimal results.
An investment with many returns
So, the long and short of it is: it’s not a ‘sissy’ thing to do. Men also benefit from facial rejuvenation.
