Did you know that men’s skin is about 25% thicker than women’s? As men age, their skin gets thinner and thinner. Guys, this means that it’s more important than ever to start taking care of your skin. Here are some of the best treatments that our licensed medical esthetician, Rebecca Cekala recommends.
Microneedling is an excellent treatment for men that have any type of scarring, lines, or wrinkles as a result of sun damage on their skin. This treatment can also be used to treat a variety of other skin concerns like pigmentation, rosacea, and stretch marks. Microneedling works by creating microscopic channels in the skin in order to increase the production of collagen which is responsible for keeping the skin healthy, nice, and plump. Pairing microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) helps speed up the healing process by using your own blood and extracting the plasma. Don’t worry, the area that you are being treated with microneedling will always be numbed using a topical numbing cream before your treatment. Most of our male customers add a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment with their microneedling appointment. The growth factors, nutrients and natural supplements in the PRP “supercharge” the effects of the combined treatment to improve the overall results, save time, and speed the healing process.
Hydrafacial is medical grade skin rejuvenation for men and women! The HydraFacial treatment works by cleansing, extracting, hydrating, and infusing serums into one’s skin. The one-of-a-kind applicator helps deep-clean your skin better than a ‘regular’ facial. The spiral design of HydroPeel® Tips, used in conjunction with the HydraFacial signature vacuum technology and serums, creates a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove impurities while simultaneously delivering hydrating skin solutions. This treatment is great for all skin types including those that may have super sensitive skin. The best part of this treatment is not only the HydraFacial afterglow, but seeing all of the gunk that came out of your pores!
After your treatment, you’ll want to make sure you continue to take care of your skin at home. This is one of the best ways to keep your skin clear of breakouts and clean. We offer a wide range of medical-grade skincare products, and Rebecca can help you decide on a regimen that’s perfect for your skin type. At Guerra Plastic Surgery Center we provide you with products from Obagi® and SkinMedica®. Don’t forget to protect your skin and pick up some Colorscience® sunscreen to complete your skincare routine.
Injectables are not just for women, they help men feel more confident in their own skin. Some of the most popular injectables among men are wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX® or Dysport® and dermal fillers from Restylane® or Juvederm®. BOTOX® and Dysport® are used for the 11’s also known as the lines when you bring your eyebrows together and forehead lines when you raise your eyebrows. Depending on how strong your muscles are, our injector will recommend one or the other. If you want to replace the volume loss you have lost due to aging, dermal fillers will help rejuvenate your appearance. Dermal fillers can be strategically placed in the cheeks, lips, chin, and even in the under-eye area. For a slimmer appearance and chiseled facial features, we recommend Sculptra® and Juvederm® Voluma® for jawline enhancements. We also love combining these jaw defining treatments with the non-surgical double chin reducing power of Kybella®.
