Men can benefit from cosmetic dermatology
Ever increasing numbers of men are enjoying the benefits of cosmetic dermatology. Long gone, are the days when female were the only patients in the dermatology clinics. Men have always been concerned about aging skin, and are now taking decisive steps in order to undergo minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Males are just as determined as their female counterparts, to choose treatments that will enhance their appearance, including dermal fillers, neurotoxins, chemical peels, and laser therapy. Even over the counter skin care manufacturers have produced creams, shampoos, lotions, and skin care products that potions that are designed for men, because of the increase in demand.
Typical skin problems for men
Men experience dry skin, wrinkling, and volume loss just as women do. However, there are some differences that require a somewhat altered approach. Male skin volume can be thicker in most cases. Men have a lower skin pH and are more prone to skin discoloration after extended UV exposure. This is only part of the reason that are skin care products are tailored to the specific needs of men. Today’s society is in tune with the way we are perceived by others. A vast majority of our male clientele are seeking treatment because they are told by others that they look “angry” because of their accentuated scowl lines.
Late to the party
For years, men failed to take advantage of cosmetic products and procedures, simply because they were too embarrassed, or convinced that it was less than “macho” to inquire. Over the past decade or two, we have seen an exponential increase in the number of men asking about dermatology treatments. Today’s man understands that it is important to understand how we are perceived by others. For example, aging men who work with the public often seek treatment because they do not want to make the first impression that they look “angry” because of sagging facial skin that leads to accentuated scowl lines. Some men seek treatment from a dermatologist, simply to enhance their appearance and self-confidence. Men are regularly treated for skin discoloration, rosacea, skin tightening, hair removal, acne treatment, and alopecia.
