For the modern man, life is more hectic than ever. Sometimes, we may need some support from innovative skin treatments to maintain youthful and glowing skin. As we grow older, loss of the skin’s softness is expected. The result is wrinkles and visible signs of aging. Through skin treatments and anti-aging injections, it is possible for men to get rid of the visible signs of aging, acne scars sun damage. Thankfully, there are a lot of skin treatments in the market that promise you a younger appearance.
Here are the top four skin treatments that are popular among modern men.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Do you suffer from acne scars and uneven skin? You can try laser skin resurfacing. Also know as “laser peels”, these are used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, mainly in the areas around the mouth and the eyes. It is also an effective solution for treating facial scars or areas of uneven pigmentation. Laser resurfacing is performed both on the whole face as well as in specific regions.
A full-face laser resurfacing is likely to produce dramatic result mainly in aged, sun-damaged skin. However, laser scar resurfacing is a better option for saucer-shaped distensible areas. For pitted scars, dermabrasion may be a better option. Laser scar resurfacing is also a suitable option for problems like atrophic facial scars, hypertrophic scars and traumatic scars. It is a great help in blending the scar with the texture and colour of the patient’s skin.
Botox injection is a method to recover your smooth and soft look. A simple and speedy treatment, it is one of the fastest growing skin treatments for wrinkles. Wrinkles originate with the over usage of facial muscles. As such, Botox is injected into targeted muscle with a fine needle. What it does is simply inactivates the muscles that produce wrinkles. It blocks the release of acetylcholine chemical, which transmits nerve signals to contract the muscle. This process weakens the muscles that produce frown lines. With Botox, these lines are smoothed out and become almost invisible within a week.
Most surgical procedures, such as chemical peels and laser resurfacing are meant to remove the outer layers of skin. This forces new collagen growth, which eventually fills in wrinkles. The opposite approach is to fill in the wrinkles with an injectable substance such as collagen or fat. This fills in the defects giving the skin a smoother appearance.The most common filler is bovine collagen. There are now bioengineered collagen products that are non-allergic and do not require a skin test, as well as synthetic fillers.
The collagen injection restores the skin’s natural collagen. This means that your skin will naturally look younger as it fills out. However, just like natural collagen, injected collagen will eventually start to break down and need to be replaced. You might have to repeat the treatment several times a year. If you opt to use fat instead, it will last longer.
Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing technique with results similar to a chemical peel or a laser peel. However, unlike said treatments, it is faster and less invasive, but equally effective. It is possible to have a microdermabrasion in the afternoon and still hit the town that very night! This cosmetic procedure is targeted at removing dead cells. At the same time, it stimulates the production of more living cells to replace them. It is no more invasive or time consuming than a massage. With such a fast turnaround, it’s no wonder that microdermabrasion is one of the most popular skin treatments for men! It’s generally safe for all skin types as well. A popular non-surgical treatment, Vaniday has a wide selection of salons offering microdermabrasion.
