Maybe it’s the rise of social media and the sharing of selfies that’s grabbed the attention of men. Or maybe it’s the pressures of a more competitive work environment. Or maybe it’s just more important to them than it used to be. Whatever the reasons, men are paying more attention than ever to their appearances.
From the popularity of “Brotox parties” (where guys get together to have BOTOX® Cosmetic injections — have you not been invited to one?) to the increased sales of skin care products designed for men, guys are taking more steps to keep their skin looking healthy and youthful.
If you or someone you know could use some helpful information about the products, treatments, and procedures that can help men maintain or regain their youthful appearance, we’ve got it covered below — based on 3 different “types” of guys.
- The “Just Getting Started” Guy: The old saying about an ounce of prevention and a pound of cure certainly applies to taking care of your skin. Men in their 20s who follow a daily skin care regimen using quality, medical-grade skin care products , including sun protection, typically begin to reap the rewards as they reach their 30s and 40s. We offer professional skin care product lines at Spa One, and our aesthetic team can help customize treatment plans based on your skin type.
- The “Invested in Anti-Aging” Guy: As we get a little older and the signs of aging begin to etch our faces, men start asking about injectable treatments such as BOTOX Cosmetic and fillers. BOTOX is very popular with men who want to smooth the forehead wrinkles and worry lines that can make them look older than they feel or give their face an overly serious or stern appearance. Other anti-aging treatments include nonsurgical skin tightening procedures, such as Ultherapy®.
- The “Ready to Jump in Feet First” Guy: Many men in their 50s or 60s haven’t given skin care much thought, and one day they look in the mirror and notice a jowly, wrinkled face looking back. “Who’s that old guy?,” they wonder. For those men, it may be time for surgical intervention. Men from Saratoga Springs to Syracuse travel to our plastic surgery practice for facelift surgery, performed by one of our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons. A facelift can turn back the clock 10 years and still create results that look natural.
Whichever “guy” you are (or guy you may know), the path to a healthier, more youthful appearance begins by requesting a consultation at our Albany practice.
