This Friday, 21st August is Men’s Grooming Day. At enhanceskin in Nelson, we believe that men’s grooming extends beyond a good manicure. We think that men’s anti-ageing treatments play a big part in a fella’s overall care routine. So, to celebrate this internationally acknowledged day, we’re sharing some of the treatments we offer that help men address their skin concerns.
Men’s Anti-ageing Treatments:
Cosmetic Botulinum (Botox)
(Or as we like to call it when we’re looking at men’s ageing concerns… Brotox!)
Never assume that this incredibly effective injectable treatment should only be reserved for women.
Cosmetic botulinum softens the fine lines or wrinkles caused by facial expressions, stress and sun. This is a natural, purified protein. It relaxes the facial muscles that cause problem wrinkles, creating a smooth, rejuvenated and more youthful appearance.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation
Men generally tend to produce more sebum than women which can cause redness and uneven skin texture. Additionally, the outdoor lifestyle that so many men enjoy in New Zealand can exacerbate facial redness. 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. We use PRP to treat a variety of cosmetic issues, but in men, it’s most commonly used to address acne scarring and neck crinkling.
Don’t Forget the Product
Any men’s anti-ageing treatments should always be followed up with correctly prescribed skin care. At enhanceskin, we are proud to stock an advanced range of skincare products from PCA Skin and Aspect Dr Both brands are scientifically proven to reduce the effects of ageing. Finally, when it comes to skincare products the most important thing to remember is DON’T forget your sunblock!
The list above is just a small selection of popular treatments we offer at our Nelson clinic. We offer many other solutions that may be appropriate for your specific needs. Contact us to book your FREE cosmedical consultation so we can help to address your men’s ageing concerns.
