If you're a man and you're uncomfortable in your skin, there are plenty of aesthetic dermatology treatments that can help you. If you're considering aesthetic treatments, here are a few of the more popular to start with.
Chemical peels are an excellent option if you're looking to improve your skin's smoothness and reduce the appearance of acne scars. Contrary to what popular media might have you think, chemical peels aren't something to fear or be embarrassed about. In fact, there are peels that are very gentle on your skin. And if you're worried about the appearance of scarring or uneven skin tone, a chemical peel could be the perfect aesthetic treatment option for you.
Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, but that doesn't mean you have to live with them. Botox is surprisingly popular as a wrinkle reduction treatment among men. Botox is effective at softening the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, neck, cheeks, and forehead. Even creases between the brow can be softened with Botox. It should be noted, however, that Botox doesn't last forever. You can expect your results to last anywhere from three to six months. After that, you'll need to continue making appointments for injections periodically. So if you're in the market for a wrinkle reducing treatment but you're not interested in repeat treatments, Botox may not be the best option for you.
Similar to Botox, dermal fillers can help reduce the signs of aging. However, they work in a slightly different manner than Botox. Rather than freezing muscle movement in certain areas, fillers are used, as the name suggests, to fill out different areas of the face. They're most commonly used on areas like the cheeks, jaw, lips, and around the mouth. The idea behind dermal fillers is to bring back some of the volume that's lost to aging due to a reduction in collagen production and facial fat. If desired, dermal fillers can also be used to improve the appearance of the nose, chin, and jawline. For men, sculpting a stronger jawline is often one of the goals achieved through the use of dermal fillers.
Shaving is annoying even on the best of days. And if you're sick of maintaining clean edges around your beard on a daily basis, laser hair removal can help. It's not as intense as a chemical peel might be, but make sure you speak with your dermatologist about any skin sensitivities, as you may experience a dry skin rash if you're not careful after your procedure. Laser hair removal isn't just for leg hair and bikini lines. In fact, laser hair removal is often used by all kinds of people to remove unwanted facial hair. And if you get to eliminate daily beard maintenance and razor burn after a few sessions, it's well worth the investment.
