As a modern man, life is more hectic than ever. Between 6am gym sessions, long days at the office, last-minute business trips, nights out, and the usual demands at home, there’s barely enough time to eat let alone get a full night’s sleep. It’s understandable if your skin is looking a little lacklustre. But rocking up to work or an event with skin that’s dull, dry and full of blemishes is not a good look for any man.
Luckily, there are plenty of great treatments that can give your skin the boost it requires. But, how do you know which one is right for you? Should you ask your girlfriend what she gets?
Men’s Skin vs Women’s Skin
Due to hormone levels, men’s and women’s skin is inherently different. In general, men’s skin is thicker and tougher while women’s skin is more sensitive and tender. Therefore, what gives your girlfriend glowing skin may have little effect on your rugged face.
Men also tend to have more and larger hair follicles than women and produce more sebum, meaning they can often experience increased acne. Other factors, such as shaving and more time spent outdoors can also affect the needs of male skin, making reparative treatments essential.
So what skincare treatments should men explore to give them smooth yet rugged skin?
Clinical peels can make excellent skin treatments for men. Not only can they target many of the skin issues faced by males, but they can also be tailored to suit individual needs. For men with thick and tough skin, a stronger peel may be used for more effective results.
Clinical peels are essentially super exfoliators. They work by sloughing away dead skin cells to reveal clean, unblocked and fresh layers of skin. They can also target many skincare concerns for men, including large pores, acne, sun damage and fine lines.
Men’s skin typically features more collagen, but that doesn’t mean it can’t use a boost now and then. Besides, stimulating collagen production isn’t the only benefit of laser facial resurfacing. The treatment, which utilises low-risk photoacoustic technology, can also target specific skin problems, such as fine lines, enlarged pores, congestion and acne.
At MySkin Clinics, we offer a Laser Toning Facial that can be particularly ideal for younger men. As well as supplying the usual collagen-boosting benefits, this treatment can also provide deep cleansing.
Using lasers to produce slight heat and a low-grade vibration, the Laser Toning Facial can remove blackheads, liquefy oil in congested areas, destroy microorganisms and increase cell renewal. On top of that, the treatment can also reduce pigmentation and help reverse sun damage.
Who doesn’t love getting outdoors when the weather is nice? Whether you’re spending a day at the beach, meeting your mates for a kick of the footy or working on a project, be it your car or some landscaping, some time in the sun can be seriously enjoyable. However, it can also be damaging to your skin, especially in Australia.
Although the importance of sun safety is now touted more than ever, many men have been burnt in the past and still forget to slip, slop, slap. As such, sunspots are a common concern for males.
While any moles should be checked by a doctor, general pigmentation issues can be treated by MySkin Clinics. Our skin rejuvenating Pigmentation removal uses medical-grade laser technology to safety target dark spots while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
Microneedling is one of our most popular treatments for both men and women! It resurfaces and revitalises the skin using micro needles to create micro injuries on the surface layer of the skin, therefore triggering the body’s wound healing response, surging loads of collagen and skin loving nutrients to the treated area!
Requiring minimum downtime, you’ll be back for your second treatment before you know it to ensure those radiant, smoothing results last a lifetime.
One thing NO ONE wanted to be when they grew up was wrinkled! Cosmetic Injectables for men are catching up.
Wrinkles are caused by the repeated movement/contraction of muscles in the face over time, causing the overlying skin to wrinkle up. Anti-wrinkle injections help prevent wrinkle formation by blocking the signal between the facial nerve and the muscle, instantly relaxing and softening lines and wrinkles.
At MySkin Clinics, we use industry leading products for Wrinkle Reduction treatments, derived from natural proteins which allow the muscles and skin to temporarily relax, effectively reducing the appearance of wrinkles and preventing deeper lines from forming.
With results lasting up to 3-4 months, depending on the individual and treatment area, anti-wrinkle injections are the ultimate non-surgical, effective anti-ageing solution. Our expert team of Doctors and Registered Nurses create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your concerns to help you achieve a natural, more rejuvenated, youthful appearance.
