Best Cosmetic Treatments for Men
Botox is our #1 most common procedure to perform and it’s perfect for men of any age who want to look their best. Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles in your face, which prevents them from contracting and causing wrinkles. Since men generally have stronger muscles and thicker skin, they tend to get deeper and more defined wrinkles with time. If you want to prevent heavy lines, it is a good idea to start early receiving Botox in your 20s and 30s.
If you are looking for a more affordable and minimally invasive way to improve your skin’s appearance, microneedling might be right for you. This treatment uses tiny needles to create microscopic holes in the skin, which stimulate collagen production and help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other blemishes. Microneedling is also great for uneven skin tone and any scarring that you may accumulate over the years. It requires very little downtime and can be done in as little as 30 minutes, making it perfect for busy men on the go.
3. Laser Hair Reduction
If you have relentless folliculitis, razor burn or ingrown hairs in any area you shave, laser hair reduction is a wonderful option. It is a fast, easy and pain-free way to get rid of unwanted hair. It works by targeting the pigment in the hair follicle with a laser beam and permanently damaging it so that it can no longer grow hair. This treatment can be used on any area of the body, including the face, chest, back, shoulders, arms, and legs. The result is hair-free skin that you will be able to enjoy for years to come.
4. Dermal Fillers
Over time bone, fat and muscle break down and that square jaw you once had softens and leads to jowling. For men who want to enhance their jawline, dermal fillers are a fantastic option. We can place fillers along the jaw to give you a more angular and masculine appearance. This is a great treatment for men who want to achieve a more youthful look.
Even if you do oblique crunches every day, they may not result in a trim waist and V-shaped torso. We can shave off those extra inches without surgery or downtime using CoolSculpting. This treatment uses freezing technology to destroy fat cells, which are then eliminated by the body over the course of several weeks. It is a great way to achieve a more sculpted and toned physique without having to go under the knife.
Best Skin Care Products for Men
Everyone needs a retinoid. This includes men. A retinoid is a vitamin A derivative that helps to unclog pores, boost collagen production, and speed up cell turnover. This powerhouse ingredient should be a part of every man’s skin care routine. At Bryn Mawr Dermatology, we carry Sente’s BioComplete Serum, which contains a retinoid, as well as other potent ingredients that help to improve the appearance of your skin.
Men tend to have thicker skin than women, which provides them with some natural protection from the sun. However, this does not mean that men do not need to wear sunscreen. In fact, men should be wearing sunscreen every day, even if they are not spending time outdoors. The sun’s harmful UV rays can penetrate through windows and cause damage to the skin. We recommend that men use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. ISDIN’s Eryfotona Actinica SPF 50+ is a great option for men who are looking for a high-quality sunscreen that is light, thin, reef-safe and sweat-resistant. Best of all, it counteracts already present photo damage, for a more even skin tone.
3. Glycolic Pads
Glycolic acid is a type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that is derived from sugar cane. It is a popular ingredient in skin care products because it effectively exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing the brighter, healthier skin. Glycolic pads are easy to throw in a gym bag and perfect for post-workout clean-up to wipe away bacteria and grease. Our BMD Glycolic Pads 10% help keep pores clear and skin smooth while also providing anti-aging benefits.
4. Cln Facial Cleanser and BodyWash
A good cleanser is an essential part of any man’s skin care routine. It is important to choose a cleanser that is designed for your skin type. For example, men with oily skin should look for a gel or foaming cleanser, while men with dry skin should opt for a creamier formula. We recommend our CLn Facial Cleanser and CLn BodyWash, which are tough on dirt and unwanted bacteria, and gentle on skin that is prone to eczema, rash, redness, irritation and folliculitis.
5. Sheer Moisturizer
A light, oil-free lotion is a must for men with oily or acne-prone skin. A sheer moisturizer will help to hydrate the skin without causing breakouts. We recommend our BMD Sheer Moisturizer, which is a light-as-a-feather moisturizer packed with emollients that soften and smooth and humectants that trap in water to hydrate your skin. This non-comedogenic lotion is recommended for all skin types, but especially designed for men with oily or acne-prone skin.
