At Refined Dermatology, esthetic skin care and cosmetic treatments for men are becoming more and more popular. It is now more common and socially acceptable for men to take care of their skin care conditions with general dermatology treatments as well as cosmetic treatments such as Botox® and Chemical Peels.
For men, tackling your most common skin conditions results in:
- Having a healthy complexion
- Helps boost your self-esteem
- Improves happiness and overall satisfaction with the way that you look.
How it happens: This frustrating condition can be more pronounced in men, thanks to testosterone, which makes men’s skin thicker and oilier. Acne includes blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, greasy skin, and in extreme cases, cysts and scarring. Men tend to struggle more with acne of the neck as the area gets aggravated from shaving.
How it happens: Razor burn can mean discomfort and redness, or it can manifest as a serious rash with infected blisters and lesions. Regardless of the age of the razor or the type of cream being used, razor burn can take a real toll on your skin and your self-esteem.
How it happens: Rosacea is a persistent redness of the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. It is usually a result of environmental and genetic factors that cause the blood vessels in these areas to be more pronounced and sensitive than other people.
Tattoo regret is something many men deal with. At the time it sounded like a good idea, but now you just don’t want it anymore. Tattoo removal is a procedure done to try to remove an unwanted tattoo. Newer laser tattoo removal techniques can erase your tattoo with minimal side effects.
Wrinkles & Sun Damage
Men’s skin is thicker and oiler than women’s. Sometimes this can be a benefit in the war against wrinkles, but not usually. Men’s skin tends to wrinkle more deeply, and since some men (not all) are less likely than women to commit to using skincare products and sunscreen, they are more prone to damage from aging and the environment. In most cases, aging happens naturally and is inevitable, and sun exposure is the leading cause of this type of aging. The sun’s damaging rays quickly break down the various support structures within the skin, leading to an early onset of wrinkles and discoloration.
Dermatitis is a very common condition. It means inflammation of the skin. It can cause an itchy rash or patches of dry irritated skin commonly in areas like the scalp, ears, skin around the ears, eyebrows, lid margins, and folds along the sides of nose.
The earlier dermatitis is diagnosed and treated, the better. Without treatment, dermatitis often gets worse.
There is no need to be embarrassed by your eczema. You are not alone. Eczema is a general term. It’s usually used to describe skin conditions that can cause the skin to swell and discolor. The skin is often dry and itchy. Many people have it on their elbows or behind their knees. The exact causes of eczema are unknown.
A chronic (long-lasting) disease. It develops when a person’s immune system sends faulty signals that tell skin cells to grow too quickly. New skin cells form in days rather than weeks. The skin cells pile up on the surface of the skin, causing patches of psoriasis to appear. (source)
Nail Fungus often is unwelcomed because of its appearance. A fungal nail infection occurs when a fungus attacks a fingernail, a toenail, or the skin under the nail, called the nail bed. Most commonly, a group of fungi called dermatophytes (such as Candida) is responsible for nail fungal infections. However, some yeasts and molds also cause these infections. Over time the nail thickens and can become painful due to pressure from shoes pushing on the nail.
