Male Skin Concerns & Treatments

While many skin concerns, such as acne, pigmentation, and ageing don’t discriminate, several concerns are particularly prevalent amongst men.

Today we are going to reveal the most common skin concerns we see amongst men in the clinic, as well as provide some skin care tips and treatment options. 

Before you think “men don’t have facials”, we will explain why this should be part of your grooming regime and how LaserSkin Specialist differs from a typically feminine “spa” experience. 

COMMON MALE SKIN CONCERNS

Male skin often undergoes more stress than female skin: from shaving every day which irritates your skin to naturally producing more testosterone leading to increased oil production and clogged pores. It is also still common for plenty of men to work in professions that are outdoors, exposing their skin to the sun daily. Plus, don’t forget those hobbies such as surfing, golf, or fishing! All of these factors can lead to skin concerns that are both uncomfortable and damaging to self-confidence.

SENSITIVITY/FOLLICULITIS

Does your skin feel itchy, stingy, or uncomfortable after shaving? This irritation is really common amongst men and can lead to razor burn or shaving rash. Another common concern is folliculitis (redness, itching, and small, white-headed pimples). We also see plenty of redness, rosacea, and broken capillaries in the clinic which can often be attributed to sensitive skin. 

BLACKHEADS/CONGESTION/BREAKOUTS

As mentioned, men produce more testosterone which can lead to oilier skin. If the skin is not being cleansed and exfoliated regularly,  oil, sweat, and dead skin can accumulate, leading to congestion (clogged pores, blackheads, pimples).

AGEING/SUN DAMAGE

Did you know 80% of ageing is caused by sun exposure? UV rays deplete the skin of vital antioxidants as well as damage collagen and elastin fibers. This results in sunspots, age spots and pigmentation, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.

Fortunately, most of these common concerns can be easily rectified with the right care.

 

SKINCARE TIPS

By now, you might be starting to understand why skincare should be part of your daily routine. But it doesn’t have to be a 6 step process! 

A simple skincare routine can help keep your skin healthy and improve its appearance. A gentle cleanser, moisturiser, and SPF are a great place to start. This combination will ensure your largest organ is clean, hydrated, and protected!⁠

If you have specific concerns you want to target, you can then begin to add serums and other topical treatments to your regime. If you’re looking to delve into the world of skincare but are unsure where to start, get in touch with our team for recommendations!⁠

 

WHY SHOULD MEN HAVE TREATMENTS?

We all know your skin is the largest organ and is the first thing people see when they look at you- so why don’t more men take care of it?

As we have mentioned, men experience just as many concerns as women- and these are often easily rectified. There is nothing embarrassing about looking after your skin: a good skincare routine is just as important to your grooming, as shaving or getting a haircut. We all age, we are all sensitive to the sun and we should all engage in a regime that will prevent further damage- and this includes treatments!

 

 

OUR FAVOURITE TREATMENTS FOR MEN

PEELS

Peels are a great option to reduce congestion & blackheads, create a more even tone and texture, as well as smooth fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing. The use of acids breakdown dead skin cells, as well as rehydrate the complexion and replenish vital antioxidants. Our peels are completely customized to your individual skin needs. Your therapist will prescribe the most appropriate products to use on your skin, to achieve maximum results.

MICRODERMABRASION

Microdermabrasion is a popular choice amongst men as it is pain-free, has no downtime and they can feel an immediate difference. It works to address issues such as facial blemishes, acne, congestion, pigmentation, and general signs of ageing by gently buffing away the top layer of surface dead skin cells. Your skin will feel clean, decongested, smooth, and bright. 

SKIN NEEDLING

Skin needling is a more advanced treatment that delivers superior results. It can treat a wide range of concerns, helping to reduce enlarged pores, fade pigmentation, and scarring and reduce the signs of ageing.  Skin needling creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin, which triggers the skin’s natural healing response. This helps to accelerate cell turnover and rebuild collagen and elastin fibers to soften wrinkles and reduce pigmentation. The treatment is pain-free and can leave the skin slightly flushed for up to 48 hours.

THE LASERSKIN SPECIALIST DIFFERENCE 

Forget beauty treatments or floral spa facials: the treatments at LaserSkin Specialist are based upon science and medical-grade technology. Our treatments deliver real results and make lasting changes to the health and structure of your skin. 

Many of our male clients describe our treatments as discreet and professional. Our experienced therapists will ensure you leave feeling comfortable and with a treatment plan that is suited to your personal needs. 

We understand that taking the first step can be a bit daunting, which is why we offer complimentary consultations to discuss your concerns. We will outline a proposed treatment plan so you know exactly what to expect and can make an informed choice about your skin. 

So if you’re a man who’s ready to take control of your skin concerns, chat with our team today to find the right treatment for you! We have an option to suit every concern, budget and time commitment. It’s time to look after your skin and have it looking and feeling it’s best!
