Skin Care for Men

More and more men are wanting to look their best and searching for the fountain of youth. It is becoming increasingly acceptable for men to care about their looks. Skin care manufacturers are producing great products for men, but sometimes a man needs a little more than a home care routine. Medi-spa grooming services for men are increasing in popularity and becoming mainstream.

The latest trends for mens grooming include:

Botox Cosmetic (Brotox)

Botox Cosmetic is a safe and non-invasive way to keep wrinkles under control. According to a new study in the journal Cosmetic Dermatology the number of men getting Botox injections which relax the facial muscles to minimize lines & wrinkles has skyrocketed 258 percent over the past decade. Men who have tried Botox look better, feel better, and believe it gives them a competitive edge. Why is it that men are now looking at a treatment ( Botox) that in the past was typically reserved for women. Well, metrosexuality and a quick fix with no downtime for starters, but it appears as though the economy is a major factor too. Men feel increasingly pressured to maintain a more attractive and youthful look in a highly competitive job market. The study points out that a youthful appearance allows men—and women—to generate more revenue than their older looking peers, which is an important asset in a leaner workforce. “And if you are out of work, it can give you an edge in finding a new job.”

Should you decide to give Brotox a try, discuss the result you’re wanting to achieve with a trained healthcare provider who is experienced with male patients. Their are significant differences in the outcome of treating men and women as mens muscle mass and muscle fiber pattern are different compared to their female counterparts.

Advanced Medi-Spa Facials

In general men produce more oil than women. When not cleaned properly oil will clog the pores which can lead to blackheads, congested skin and blemishes. Advanced Facials such as Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels help to decongest the skin, clean out pores, improve tone & texture, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin smooth, supple and revitalized.

During your treatment our Medical Aestheticians can show you new techniques, how to apply products and the order in which to use them. You may want to relax during a treatment but don’t be afraid to ask a few questions as you can discuss your overall skin condition and how to improve and maintain healthy skin.

Laser Hair Removal

It used to be that hair removal was strictly a female thing. Unless you were a bodybuilder, cyclist or swimmer chances are your body hair remained untouched. This is no longer the case for men and studies show and report that more and more men are opting for the same grooming rights as women – including smooth body skin. Most men don’t necessarily want it all removed but increasingly they do want it thinned out on their back and chest. Our laser treatments use Intense Pulsed Light that permanently reduces unwanted hairs in 3 to 6 sessions.
