Your skin is always exposed to what life and the elements can throw at it. For some men a rugged appearance may be desirable, but it has also become more common these days for men to want to retain their youthful looks for as long as possible. Over time as we age, our skin can end up looking less than its very best and in these cases, there may be a desire to help improve the overall look, feel and tone of the skin.
Skin rejuvenation treatments tend to cover a wide range of different procedures and in fact skin rejuvenation in general can also cover a wide range of conditions that can be caused by a number of different factors.
Common Male Skin Issues
One area that many men would like to treat is residual acne damage and scarring. Acne scars can leave a person feeling self-conscious, but the good news is that there are a number of treatments available to reduce the appearance of acne scarring. Sun Damage is also another concern for men, and this sort of damage can appear as we age. These sun spots, which are also called age spots in some cases, can be treated and their appearance reduced.
In addition to damage caused by acne and the sun, general skin discoloration and tone can be improved upon using a number of techniques. Also, minor skin blemishes that can occur as we age can also be treated effectively to help improve the overall appearance of the skin, and to make an individual appear more youthful.
There are a wide range of treatments available to help improve all of these conditions, but there is no one stop shop solution that can fix everything. Typically, the best course of action is to first book an appointment with Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Michele Green to discuss your concerns and to then create a treatment plan which will select the best course of treatment for your own particular needs and requirements.
Skin Rejuvenation with Laser Treatments
There are a range of different laser treatments available on the market and each has its own strengths when it comes to helping improve the skin. We will help you select the right laser treatment for your needs.
For example, with individuals who have acne scars, one of the main treatments that we may recommend here is the Vbeam® Laser. This particular treatment works well with acne scars that appear as lesions and overall redness of the skin. This laser can work well with other skin issues such as Rosacea.
Fraxel before and after, male patient treated for Sunspots
Treatments for skin damage caused by the sun, or issues with pigmentation or age spots can be treated with the Fraxel® Dual laser. This is a very flexible laser that can treat a number of different conditions, and the advantage of the Fraxel® Dual laser is that it only targets the damaged skin and it leaves the healthy skin completely alone. Some good results have been achieved with the Fraxel® Dual laser. In addition to this treatment, for sun spots and dark spots on the skin the Fraxel® Dual laser may be selected. Also, other treatments that are available include the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser treatment. This treatment is also good at reducing overall skin redness.
Other Skin Treatments
For many men, laser treatments can be a great way to treat a number of different issues. However, the laser is not the only procedure that is available to help improve the overall look of the skin. Some individuals prefer to have a chemical peel instead of laser treatments, and these can work well at treating large areas of the face too. Different strength peels are available depending on the level of treatment required and the amount of downtime available to the patient.
Wrinkles can also be treated fairly easy with a number of different techniques. Frown lines and wrinkles around the forehead can be reduced through the use of Botox, and other types of wrinkles can be decreased thanks to dermal filler injections. As with laser treatments, there are a wide range of different types of dermal fillers available, and depending on what needs to be treated, Dr. Green will recommend an appropriate course of action.
