As a society, we’ve been conditioned to think that it’s just women who have a desire to age well, but at enhanceskin, we can make testament to the fact that this is not so… We often help with men’s ageing concerns, and a great many of our clients are indeed, gentlemen!
While men and women’s skin are significantly different in makeup, many of the cosmedical treatments we offer can help both men and women address their skin concerns.
So how exactly can we help men?
Botox (or as we like to call it when we’re looking at men’s ageing concerns… Brotox!) – This simple non-surgical procedure should not be reserved for the fairer sex. Botox (Botulinum toxin) softens the fine lines or wrinkles caused by facial expressions, stress and sun. As a natural, purified protein, it relaxes the facial muscles that cause problem wrinkles, creating a smooth, rejuvenated and more youthful appearance.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation – Sebum production is greater in men than women, this combined with the outdoor lifestlye so many men enjoy in New Zealand, can lead to facial redness that increases with ageing. IPL Skin Rejuvenation will significantly reduce redness and broken veins, improving the overall tone and texture of a man’s skin.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) – This procedure involves taking a blood sample, concentrating the platelets from that sample and reinjecting the platelets back into the body to assist healing and regenerate tissue. This occurs because the platelets secrete a concentrated mix of Growth Factors. These Growth Factors stimulate repair cells. It can be used to treat a variety of cosmetic issues, but in me it’s most commonly used to address acne scarring, neck crinkling, and regrowth of areas of hair loss.
Varicose Vein Treatments – While these shouldn’t necessarily be catalogued under men’s ageing concerns because varicose veins can develop from a young age… We felt we had to make reference to the varicose vein treatments we carry out at enhanceskin in this article, because there often appears to be another misconception that varicose veins only affect women, and this is not so, we treat lots of men who have varicose veins! We utilise the minimally invasive Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA), and/ or Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS). Together they’re the gold standard varicose vein treatment, designed to be fast, fairly pain-free and totally effective. It’s walk-in and walk-out, and you can even drive yourself home afterwards. If you hate needles and stockings you might be up for Venaseal, the medical glue that is comparing well with EVLA!
The list above is just a small selection of popular treatments we offer gentlemen, but we offer many other solutions that may be appropriate for your specific needs.
