Mens Treatments – Adelaide
One of the biggest misconceptions and busted myths I see in my office is that cosmetic dermatology only applies to women. This may have been true 10 years ago, but now more and more of my cosmetic patients are men.
In the last decade, there’s been a shift in the attitude of men seeking a younger appearance. There’s a spike in interest of treatments that only women have been doing for years. More magazines and websites are educating men about “beauty,” making it socially acceptable for men to be concerned about looking older.
This new trend is rooted in men being practical, not simply vain. In the workforce, youth equates to more productivity and speedy results. Looking younger makes men more professionally desirable. And then there are social media and dating apps. More technology means we are looking at ourselves a whole lot more—and so are other people. The notion that “men look sexy as they age” is something they no longer believe.
Coinciding with this changing attitude are the advancements in the types of treatments available. Men are looking to dermatologic procedures that offer quick fixes with no downtime and that bring natural results immediately.
How it works
Mens Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti-wrinkle injections have long been the domain of women. However, with changing social norms, men are also wanting to look younger and less tired looking. It has been adopted so well by men that the term “Brotox” is now well understood. Anti-wrinkle injections are able to help you to soften wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and brow.
Mens Dermal Fillers
Men are generally afraid cosmetic procedures will make them look feminine. That’s why they shy away from injectable fillers. However, there are special techniques available that allow men to retain their masculine features. Fillers in truth are one of the most versatile and effective anti-ageing tools. We use them in a conventional way for women, but for men, a lesser amount is the key to a natural appearance. More than ever men use fillers to create a more lifted look and to fill in deep grooves and hollows. Treatment around the eyes is growing in popularity to remedy dark circles or that sunken tired look.
Alternative Treatments For Men
Let’s be honest, there are many men out there that care about their skin and the way they look. However, not all men are ready or willing to go down the path of anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.
For these men, we like to be able to offer them an alternative way to keep their skin looking youthful. The treatments below, rely on stimulating synthesis of collagen within the skin. This is done by creating micro-injuries within the skin which then heal using the bodies own healing mechanisms. As a result of this healing process more collagen is produced, adding youthful volume to the skin. This extra volume also tends to iron out fine lines and wrinkles.
Factor 4 For Men
The FACTOR4 treatment relies on highly concentrated and super-rich conditioned serum – blood plasma, containing 4 times more growth factors than any existing brand PRP. How can it do this? FACTOR4 is autologous (it comes from your own body cells) and depending on the patient’s needs, it is used to treat wrinkles and crepiness in areas of the face, neck, décolletage, back of hands, dark circles, stretch marks, pores and scars.
Nu Era Skin Rejuvenation
Nu Era skin tightening and rejuvenation uses Radio Frequency Technology to deliver heat energy into the dermis. This heat energy acts in two ways. Firstly it causes skin tightening by causing the collagen fibres within the skin to shrink. Secondly, the heat energy causes the synthesis of new collagen to help volumise the skin. It is a non-invasive treatment and feels like a gentle facial massage with a smooth warm rock.
Laser Genesis uses micro pulses of 1064nm laser energy to penetrate the skin deeply. This energy causes micro-injuries to the skin in a similar to micro-needling. These micro-injuries heal and produce collagen, which thickens the skin and helps to iron out fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, Laser Genesis can help to even out skin tone and diminish the appearance of skin pigmentation.
Male Pattern Baldness
Almost all men, at least to some degree, suffer from male pattern baldness as they get older. By the age of 50, half of men suffer from some male pattern baldness.
For some men, this is a cause of much emotional distress and can cause a loss of self-confidence. For these men, it is good news that androgenic alopecia can be slowed down to retain your natural hair for longer.
Hair Loss Treatment For Men
Advanced Cosmetic Medicine specialises in the treatment of Androgenic Alopecia, a condition that affects both men and women. ACM offers two excellent autologous treatment options for this condition; Factor 4 Hair Loss Treatment and Regenera Activa Hair Loss Treatment. Both of these treatments work by stimulation the remaining hair follicles to continue healthy hair growth.
