Traditionally, people viewed cosmetic procedures as only for women. However, in the last decade, that has changed as more and more men seek cosmetic procedures, especially those that fight against the effects of aging.
Aging causes many changes in the skin, from fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and dull skin. However, using some of these anti-aging methods, men can rewind and reduce the effects of aging on their skin and get glowing and youthful skin. The following are the best procedures to combat the effects of aging in men:
Laser hair removal
This treatment started primarily for women who wanted to remove excess hair on their legs and other body parts. However, men have embraced it more because they grow more hair between the brows, hair around their ears, and on the back as they age.
This treatment helps men save time and effort from waxing and shaving. It is perfect for men who have coarse and dark hair.
This treatment works by emitting an infrared light beam onto the skin. Once the beam hits the skin, it becomes heat, damaging the hair follicles. While it may take 6-10 appointments, the treatment eliminates.. hair growth for a long time.
Laser skin treatment
Also known as light therapy, this is an anti-aging treatment that utilizes light energy to regenerate and repair skin cells. This treatment directs concentrated and sharp vibrating light rays at damaged skin. That helps remove the layers of damaged skin, leaving you with young and smooth skin.
The light rays also penetrate the inner layers of the skin, stimulating collagen-producing cells and shrinking underlying tissues. That helps alleviate issues like fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.
Patients can also get a treatment called photorejuvenation. This reverses the signs of aging by changing the skin at a cellular level.
Skin resurfacing treatments
There are different resurfacing treatments, depending on the goals of the patient and the extent of their aging issues. Some of the most common and effective treatments include:
- Hydrafacial MD- This is a non-invasive treatment that combines the benefits of a chemical peel, hydradermabrasion, hyaluronic acid, and automated painless extractions. This treatment includes cleansing the external skin impurities, using an acid peel, extracting deeper impurities, and hydrating the skin. It is perfect for all skin tones and helps deal with fine lines, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and elasticity.
- Chemical peels- This treatment involves applying salicylic acid and retinoid to the skin to eliminate the first few damaged skin layers. They help with issues like acne, fine lines, and skin discoloration. Clients can choose from deep peels, medium-depth peels, or mild peels, depending on the intensity of their issues.
- Diamond microdermabrasion- This treatment uses a diamond-tipped hand tool to exfoliate the epidermis gently. It helps with wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, age spots, and melasma.
Advanced corrective facials
While facials may sound like a standard treatment for everyone once in a while, they are a perfect way to maintain healthy and youthful skin. They help deep cleanse the skin and increase blood and nutrient flow in the skin.
There are different types of facials that clients can choose from, each with different ingredients for the best results. They include oxygen-infused, corrective vitamin infusion, deep pore cleansing, and balancing anti-aging facials.
These help with acne spots, skin discoloration, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and skin texture.
