Male Skin Care

Male Skin Care

There are a few common male skin challenges we treat:

Acne:

Acne is a fairly common problem, and can successfully be treated topically by a number of different chemical peels. A course of treatments drastically improves the condition of the skin. Peels should also be combined with other technologies such as Laser Genesis, Carboxytherapy and PDT for best results.

Acne should also be treated from the inside, by restoring gut health, reducing inflammation and encouraging healing.

Acne Scarring:

Acne scarring can be addressed through skin needling procedures such as Dermapen, Mesotherapy, or Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP), also known as the Vampire Facial. Laser therapies such as Pearl Fusion, Fraxel Dual, CO2 Fractional Laser and Laser Genesis are also great options, especially in severe cases.

Skin Tags, Razor Bumps and Red Cheeks:

Issues such as skin tags, razor bumps or red cheeks can be improved through a number of laser or light treatments, such as the Nd: YAG laser (pulsed light) or Fraxel Dual.

Hair Maintenance:

Many of our male patients struggle with unwanted hairgrowth on the face and body. There are very effective options to remove or reduce unwanted hair.

Laser hair removal has shown great success to permanently remove hair on the back and neck, whereas bushy eyebrows can be trimmed, and hair in the nostrils and ears can be waxed.

Injectables for Lines and Wrinkles:

Men can defy the signs of ageing and remain youthful by making use of Botulinum Toxinand fillers. It is important to note that one does not treat the male face in the same way as one would a female's.

Generally, men want to soften their wrinkles, rather than get rid of them, to ensure they lessen the visible signs of ageing but don't give up their rugged look.Men's muscles are also stronger than women's; they, therefore, require more Botulinum Toxin.

The same goes for filler. Men do not require filler in the same areas as women or the same amounts. The injector's aim with filler is to accentuate or enhance male features, not change them.

The most important part of any of the procedures mentioned above is to seek professional help. Certain treatments can only be administered by medical doctors. Besides, peels and lasers can be dangerous when performed incorrectly. It is therefore advisable to visit a clinic such as Skin Renewal where you will undergo a full assessment and receive an individualised treatment package based on your specific needs and requirements.
