Skincare Report: Top 5 Treatments for Men

Hello gentlemen! You represent approximately 17% of our clientele (and growing) so this article is for you.

Today we're deep-diving and demystifying the wonderful world of men's skincare and discussing five targeted medical aesthetics treatments that are great for guys. 

Whether you're battling acne scars, dark spots, dull skin, aging skin or unwanted hair, these treatments at our Burnaby location will absolutely transform your skin.

Laser Hair Removal for Face and Body

Let's start with a game-changer for many men: laser hair removal. If you're tired of constantly shaving or waxing then laser hair removal can offer you a long-term solution to reduce unwanted hair on your face and body.

Treatments are quick, efficient, and the results are noticeable in a few short sessions. No more razor bumps or ingrown hairs—just smooth, hair-free skin.

The procedure is safe for most skin types and commonly treats areas like the chest, back, shoulders, and face. Imagine waking up without having to worry about stubble - it's liberating!

There are two ways to treat unwanted hair with lasers. Using laser or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). Both are effective but each one has its pros and cons, depending on your hair colour and skin type. IPL's generally work better on lighter complexions whereas lasers are suitable for most skin types.

Regardless of the technology, your hair removal treatment works by targeting hair follicles. IPL uses broad spectrum light and laser emits concentrated light energy, to heat up and damage the hair bulb, inhibiting future hair growth. Depending on your complexion, we recommend starting with a series of 6-8 sessions.

Microneedling to Minimize Acne Scars

If you find acne scars a nuisance, then microneedling should be part of your facial skincare routine. This treatment uses tiny needles deployed in rapid fire succession to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production.

Over a series of 4-6 sessions, microneedling can significantly improve the appearance of acne scars and texture irregularities, giving you smoother and clearer skin. There's no need to be afraid of needles either, the procedure is relatively comfortable, and downtime is minimal.

Your skin may look a little wind burned for a few hours and you may experience roughness the next day. A week later your skin will be back to normal, only a little smoother than before. 

Microneedling is also effective for reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores, making it a versatile option for overall skin rejuvenation. Say goodbye to those reminders of teenage breakouts and hello to renewed confidence. 

IPL Photofacial to Eliminate Dark Spots

Too much sun exposure can result in dark spots and uneven pigmentation. That's where IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) aka photofacial can help. This treatment targets and breaks down excess pigment in the skin, effectively reducing dark spots caused by sun damage or aging.

IPL delivers precise broad spectrum light energy to the skin, stimulating collagen production as well as zapping pigment. This helps to improve overall skin tone and texture. The result? A smoother, more even complexion with reduced pigmentation.

You'll be happy to know that photofacials are non-invasive and require minimal downtime, making them a popular choice for men looking to achieve a more uniform skin tone without undergoing more aggressive procedures.

Laser Genesis Anti-Aging Treatment for Younger Skin

If you’re seeking overall skin rejuvenation, consider getting Laser Genesis. This non-invasive skin rejuvenation laser technology targets fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven texture, stimulating collagen production for smoother, firmer skin.

The procedure feels like a gentle warm sensation on the skin and is comfortable enough that many clients describe it as relaxing. But make no mistake, it's a powerful treatment that delivers outstanding results over the course of 4-6 sessions.

Laser Genesis is also effective at reducing redness associated with conditions like rosacea or flushing. It's a versatile treatment that leaves your skin looking refreshed and revitalized. It's perfect before a wedding, vacation or special event to get your skin in tip-top shape.

HydraFacials for Optimal Skin Health

Last but not least, let's talk about the HydraFacial - a favourite among many of our menfolk clients. The HydraFacial is a multi-step treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin using specialized serums.

This customizable and versatile facial can address a range of skin concerns, from congestion and dullness to fine lines and dehydration. The best part? There's no discomfort or downtime involved, making it perfect for a busy man.

HydraFacials are suitable for all skin types and can be tailored to meet your specific men’s skincare needs. Whether you're looking for a deep-cleaning treatment or want to give your skin a boost, a HydraFacial will give you a radiant complexion and a noticeable improvement in skin texture.

In summary, investing in your skin is a form of self-care that every man should think about. Whether you're targeting specific skin issues or simply aiming to maintain a healthy glow, these top five medical aesthetics treatments at our Spotless Laser are designed to deliver exceptional results.
