Aesthetics For Men
Everyone deserves to look good. Men too. When you search for aesthetic treatment on the internet, what you get are pages filled with all sort of aesthetic treatment designed for women. It is not surprising. Historically, the study of beauty, aging and aesthetic medicine focuses on the female face. Men have largely been ignored despite increasing demand.
What about men?
Firstly, we need to understand the male face. How is it different from the female face? Only when we answer this question, can we then determine what aesthetic treatment is suitable for men. The male face is unique and must be approached and treated differently. Let us look at some unique characteristics of the male face:
1) Men are more likely to suffer from hair loss than women due to a condition called androgenetic alopecia (male pattern hair loss).
2) Male facial skin is thicker and more coarse. It has more sebum and sweat production as well. A combination of these result in bigger facial pores and uneven facial skin texture.
3) Men are more likely to smoke and be exposed to sunlight (UV). Therefore, men's facial skin ages quicker and are more prone to pigmentations.
4) Men have less soft tissue in the cheek area (3mm less than women). This results in flatter cheeks in men.
5) Men have more severe facial wrinkles especially deep wrinkles, as opposed to women who tend to have more superficial wrinkles. This is a result of thicker facial skin, less fat tissue in the face and a more prominent facial musculature.
Conclusion: Men appear older than their age when compared to women.
This gives men more reasons to have aesthetic treatment done!
Based on point 1) to 5) above, what aesthetic treatment can men do?
1) Male Pattern Hair Loss
Male pattern hair loss affects 70% of men at some point of their lives. It can be frustrating and embarrassing for men.
This condition can be treated with Regenera Activa, a hair technology dedicated for male pattern hair loss treatment.
In combination with oral hair growth supplement, hair growth spray and/or low level laser threapy, Regenera Activa is a very suitable treatment for men who are not ready for surgical hair transplant yet.
2) Pores, scars and uneven facial skin texture
The solution to this is Skin Booster treatment and Laser treatment.
Skin Booster treatment / Korean Rejuran Healer
Collagen Skin Booster treatment and Korean Rejuran Healer treatment involves a series of micro-injections of skin booster and Rejuran Healer (Polynucleotide extracted from Salmon DNA) material below your facial skin surface using a Korean technique with a micro-injection machine. It keeps your facial skin well hydrated, smoothes your skin, enhances your complexion and refines pores and scars.*
Laser Carbon Peel Rejuvenation
Laser stimulates collagen formation which effectively tightens the skin and shrinks pores and scars. This results in a smoother and more even facial skin texture. It is the perfect solution for men who have busy schedules because it only takes 5-10 minutes to have the treatment done with no downtime.*
Laser carbon peel treatment effectively removes the dead skin layer and impurities in the skin, and at the same time stimulates collage formation deep inside the skin. This is a perfect solution for pores, scars and uneven facial skin texture.*
CO2 Fractional Laser
CO2 Fractional Laser is a non-invasive laser that uses a device to deliver a LASER beam divided into thousands of microscopic treatment zones that target a fraction of the skin at a time. This effectively removes layers of skin tissues in fractionated method, leaving the surrounding skin intact to aid in healing.
This treatment causes skin cells over treated area to regenerate and reproduce more rapidly, therefore can effective improve pores and acne scars.
CO2 Fractional Laser helps improve pores and mild to severe deep acne scars. It also helps improve lines and wrinkles, uneven skin colour, textural irregularities, sun damaged skin and pigmentation.
Exposure to sunlight is the key to having facial pigments. Pigment laser can effectively remove these pigments by breaking them down. It gives men a spot free face, looking more radiant and confident.*
4) Facial volume loss
Dermal fillers are very useful in men because of their relative lack of volume in the face, especially in the cheek area. Fillers are designed to create volume when injected into the hollow areas of the face.*
Nose, Jawline & Chin filler
Nose filler makes the nose bridge higher. Jawline and Chin filler result in a more prominent chin and jawline. Combining the two, it results in an overall more masculine facial appearance.*
Men have flatter cheeks than women. Cheek filler can help create some volume around the cheeks. Instead of filling up the anterior and medial cheeks, which is usually done for women, fillers should be focused along the zygomatic arch for men. This creates a full but more masculine looking face.*
5) Facial wrinkles
This can be treated with Botulinum Toxin injection.
Given the anatomic differences, Botulinum injection should be tailored to the male face to avoid over-feminising the face. The dosage may differ slightly from what is being used in women.
The common wrinkled areas of men's face that Botulinum injection can help*:
- frown lines
- forehead lines
- crow's feet
- jaw wrinkling
As you can see, aesthetic treatment is also for men. In fact, there are more reasons for men to have aesthetic treatment done. Afterall, men want to look good too!
