Cosmetic surgery has generally targeted women. While this may be true, the percentage of male patients undergoing cosmetic surgery has been on the rise, with anti-aging procedures taking the lead. Unlike women who want treatments to make them look younger, men typically want a treatment that can give them a more relaxed look. These are the top four non-surgical cosmetic treatments for men who want to fight aging:
Small amounts of type A botulinum or more commonly known as Botox, are injected directly into the muscle to smoothen out wrinkles. It will temporarily paralyse the muscle, allowing the wrinkle to relax. Afterwards, the skin will appear smoother and younger-looking.
The treatment only takes about 30 minutes, and most patients even have it during their lunch breaks from work. However, as it can only last for about six months, you may need to have more than one injection to keep the youthful glow. Many patients, especially men, prefer to get Botox on their forehead, where wrinkles are often more pronounced.
Microdermabrasion uses a vacuum suction device and a mild chemical crystal formulation to remove the skin cells’ top layer. This allows new evenly textured new skin to grow, rejuvenate the complexion, and even help the skin to absorb topical products much better.
The treatment also helps remove fine lines, as well as give the skin a glowing healthy look. The length of the treatment takes about half an hour. Your doctor might require you to have more than one treatment after a few weeks to see the full results.
This could last for several months and results may vary depending on the patient's age and skin condition. Microdermabrasion is not recommended for deep lines or wrinkles and it doesn’t stop the skin from sagging. It is the quickest way to rejuvenate your skin in just one day.
3. Chemical Peel
This is a treatment that uses various types of chemicals to peel away layers of dead skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face. You may get various results from this treatment depending on the type of peeling process you chose.
Chemical peel refreshes the skin, stimulates the production of collagen (to tighten the skin), reduces wrinkles, improves skin texture, corrects any skin pigmentation problems, and even reduces skin damage brought about by the sun. A session can last for 30 minutes to about two hours, depending on the treatment you are getting. The effect also lasts differently depending on the type of peeling you chose. Results can be temporary (which can lasts for about six months) or it may be permanent.
Most men opt for the light chemical peel as it does a very good job in softening the lines, rejuvenating the skin and making you look younger without any downtime. It's one of the most popular treatments for men when it comes to anti-aging.
4. Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation utilises either non-invasive laser beams or other light-based devices to deliver short bursts of energy to the skin. It firms and tones skin by stimulating new collagen growth, which improves the skin’s texture, minimises fine lines, and gives the skin a rested and refreshed look without the use of any chemicals (unlike Botox). It doesn’t require any intense aftercare routine, however, several treatments are recommended every few months to keep stimulating collagen production.
