Today, there are just as many men who are interested in having their skin look good, youthful and healthy. Gone are the days that only women take good care of their skin.
Men, you may have skin conditions that can also be with today’s latest cosmetic procedures and technology.
Some of the skin issues that can be treated include:
Acne scars are very unwelcomed to those who experience them. Scars result from a wound or injury and are part of the skin’s normal healing process. Generally, superficial wounds heal without scarring. It is when the dermis is damaged that scars form on the skin. Acne scars are most often the product of an inflamed lesion, such as a papule, pustule, or cyst. Inflamed blemishes occur when the follicle, or pore, becomes engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall. If the rupture occurs near the skin’s surface, the lesion is usually minor and heals quickly. More serious lesions arise when there is a deep break in the follicle wall.
Even if you are a man, aging eyelids can be bothersome. You can probably thank your parents if you have baggy eyelids — aging around the eyes is usually due to genetics. But you really start to see it as gravity pulls at your eyelids over years, stretching the skin until it loses its elasticity.
Aging Face & Neck
Men, as we age, our face and neck seem to show it the most. Your skin dries and thins out as you get older, and you can also lose volume and muscle tone. This make you look droopy or wrinkly.
Even if we are proud of our age, dark spots are no fun. Age spots are flat, brown, gray, or black spots on the skin. They usually occur on areas that have been exposed to the sun. Age spots are also called liver spots. Age spots are caused primarily by years of exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun
Belly Fat & Back Fat
Belly fat on men is often known as beer belly, beer gut, pot belly, or spare tire. Back Fat is know as known as “Love Handles”. Belly fat is also known as visceral fat, is considered the most harmful form of fat in your body. It is excess fat that accumulates around the stomach. Back fat is just annoying. Your genetics, hormones, or some easy-to-fix mistakes may be to blame. Belly fat and Back fat can plague both men and women. Many times diet and exercise can’t even help get rid of this exercise resistant fat.
Men, look closely at your face and you may see those broken capillaries. Broken capillaries are tiny blood vessels that become visible near the surface of the skin and usually appear as streaks or blotches. They are commonly known as spider veins because of their tree branch, or spider web-like, shape. Broken capillaries appear close to the skin surface and can be identified by their red or blue color.
On average, men have larger pores than women. Pores are more prominent when they are dilated, infected, or clogged with oil, making them appear larger than they really are. Age and genetics can also contribute to large pores. Thick, oily skin or sun damage can also make pores dilate which make them appear enlarged.
Facial Volume Loss
As we get older the volume in our face decreases. Heredity and the aging process are the foremost causes of facial volume loss. Additional factors can be stress, lifestyle factors, numerous traumas, and extreme dieting may also play a part in facial volume loss.
Quite simply, as you squint and frown over time, your skin gets folds from the repeated action.
Frown lines are deep vertical folds that occur between the eyebrows as a result of frowning. Much like forehead lines, as we age these frown lines become more prominent.
Unwanted hair is a big concern for men. It is common on back, legs, fingers, feet, and toes.
Leg Veins can often make us feel like we don’t want to show our legs. Spider veins are smaller, red, purple, and blue vessels that also twist and turn. Spider veins are easily visible through the skin, as well. They are typically visible on the legs and face. Varicose veins are large, raised, swollen blood vessels that twist and turn. They usually develop in the legs and can be seen through the skin. A number of factors can contribute to leg veins including: Heredity, Obesity, and Hormonal influences to name a few.
Neck Skin/Double Chin
Men and women experience aging necks and double chins. Excessive sagging of the neck often this is referred to as a “turkey neck”. As we get older a number of factors can change the contour of the neck and jaw line. Weight gain and loss, weakening of the supporting structures and loss of skin elasticity.
Taking good care of the skin’s texture is not just for ladies anymore. Poor skin texture is a common problem for men and shows itself in the form of rough skin or patches. Its characteristics include dry flaky skin on face, sagging skin, wrinkles, and in many cases shows the effects of sun damage, like dark spots on face.
Skin of Color
Men, if you have skin of color, you may still be a good candidate for cosmetic dermatology treatments. The pigmentation is the same in all human skin. The difference is in the amount of melanin. The darker the skin, the more melanin there is and the more volatility there is regarding the direction of melanin distribution. For this reason, skin of color needs to be cosmetically treated carefully, more slowly, and with the understanding that improvement and long term results will be slower to appear.
Most people love the warmth and light of the sun but too much sun exposure can significantly damage human skin. The sun has a profound effect over years of exposure on the skin, causing premature skin aging, skin cancer, and many other skin changes.The most common types of sun damage to the skin are: Premature aging, Thick skin, coarse wrinkles, brown spots, age spots, white spots.
Wrinkles are a normal part of aging. We all get them. Wrinkles are fine lines, folds or creases in the skin surface. Wrinkles are caused by a combination of factors: age, exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, smoking, and repeated facial expressions. As you get older, your skin naturally becomes less elastic and more fragile. Decreased production of natural oils dries the skin, and fat in the deeper layers of your skin diminish which cause loose, saggy skin and more pronounced lines.
While wrinkles do look better on men, they still age us and make our skin look less rejuvenated. Many men like to lessen the appearance of wrinkles so they can have discreet and natural skin procedures to help rid or soften the fine lines and wrinkles.
Men with skin issues including sun damage or freckles might want to get a skin rejuvenation treatment to help rid the skin of these problems and give it a clean slate.
As men, we can easily have scars that are really bothersome.
If the scar is on your face and really noticeable, you may also be able to get a stronger cosmetic treatment on them to help soften the skin and have it appear less noticeable.
Patients with constant redness on the face can get certain cosmetic treatments to help lessen the color and give the skin a less flush or irritated look.
For many years, it was all about women interested in going to long lengths to look and feel better, especially when it came to their face. Nowadays, men are just as interested as women are in regards to having a youthful glow and that’s why there are so many different options for skin rejuvenation for men. For those who are interested in looking and feeling better about yourselves, you’ll want to start by putting your best face forward.
