Yes, the Med Spa Is for Men!

By  0 Comments

Q: How are med spas tailored to men?
A: Med spas are catering all their services, from neurotoxins to dermal fillers to laser hair removal, to men who desire to look and feel refreshed. These days, women are not the only ones who are considering facial rejuvenation such as Botox® and filler. Men are starting to feel the pressure to look a certain way and are turning to med spas. With today’s intensely competitive job market, online dating scene, aging and overall life’s daily stressors, many men are turning to Botox and fillers to trim off a few years of stress from different aspects of their life. For many men, Botox is a simple matter of regaining confidence and boosting their self-esteem. Botox is a non-invasive procedure that commonly targets forehead lines and crow’s feet. A simple treatment typically takes only a matter of minutes; it’s often referred to as a “lunch procedure” because you can do it briefly and be back to your regular daily schedule. The goal of Botox treatment is not to look frozen but instead well rested and vibrant. Additionally, dermal fillers are a great way to slow down the aging process and stay looking revitalized. Dermal fillers have very little to no down time, with a possibility of bruising or redness subsiding in a matter of a couple days. Many men often use dermal fillers to sharpen up their jawline or chin for a more masculine look. Dermal fillers also help ease the aging process by helping to restore fat loss within the face. Women and men should both be able to benefit from med spa services and regain
their confidence!

Q: What med spa skin care products and services are most beneficial for men?
A: Acne, fine lines, wrinkles and sunspots are some of the most common skin concerns with our male clients and we offer many services to treat these skin conditions. We offer IPL treatments for skin discoloration that may be caused by the sun or discoloration caused by broken capillaries on the sides of the nose and on the cheeks. The ResurFX can help with previous acne scarring. Laser hair removal helps with any unwanted hair on the face or body but also helps with ingrown hair while removing the hair. The products used in your daily skin care regimen are most important when it comes to maintaining healthy skin and preventing aging. We offer SkinMedica® and it’s one of the best medical-grade product lines on the market. Many men like to keep things simple, so there’s a great cleanser and exfoliator in one and that’s the AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser. The Rejuvenative is a lighter moisturizer that has hyaluronic acid in it which carries 100 times its water weight, so it leaves the skin hydrated and healthy. Lastly, I can’t stress this enough: SUNSCREEN! Essential Defense Mineral SPF35 should be worn daily; even when there are clouds in the sky, UV rays are still getting through and can damage the skin. Healthy skin is always in for men and women of every age!
