Male Skin Care Solutions
Men are now becoming more aware of the importance of good skin care as stress has a more pronounced toll on your tougher skin as you age.
Whether you would like to achieve younger looking skin, eliminate acne scarring or simply brighten, tighten and revitalise your skin, we have a solution for you.
Male Acne Scarring – how it occurs and how we can help
Acne scarring can be more severe in men due to the texture of your skin being different to women’s. It occurs when follicles in the skin become blocked. Dirt and bacteria can build up in these blockages resulting in plugs or comedones. These can become inflamed when picked or touched which may result in scarring.
The treatments we offer are as follows:
Medium Strength Chemical
Scars can be improved greatly by using a chemical peel. This treatment effectively removes the topmost layer of the skin to reveal smoother, healthier and scar-free skin underneath. Combine this with a dermaroller treatment and you will see a dramatic result where skin grows back healthy and rejuvenated. This treatment also has the additional bonus, for men, of producing a significantly younger appearance as your normally tougher dermis is forced to regenerate a supple new layer.
Obagi Blue Peel
This treatment can be finely tuned to your skin’s needs by controlling the depth of the peel. Lasting only 20 minutes, the procedure will produce striking results after the skin has finished peeling (beginning within 2 to 3 days and lasting up to 10 days). It can be repeated every 6 to 8 weeks until your goal is achieved.
Deep scars can be targeted using a fine needle to inject filler into those areas to lift out the indentation. Male facial divots borne from acne or shaving irritation can benefit greatly from this procedure.
Hydrobalance of the skin is restored which plumps up acne scarring and improves the elasticity. This is achieved by injecting fillers into the dermis of the skin and 4 treatments are usually all that is needed to obtain full results.
The skin is stimulated to produce more of the body’s own collagen resulting in the new collagen fibres thickening the skin and filling atrophic scars. A special micro needling process is used to encourage the skin to regenerate in this way. This process of boosting the skin’s rate of rejuvenation can also help men combat hair loss. Dermaroller helps to significantly reduce hair loss and encourage the growth of new hair.
Obagi Nu-derm System
