Although you might not want to admit it, men want to look their best. But adult acne, sun damage, and fine lines and wrinkles are hard to escape. Most men don’t have a skin care regimen—do you? With a few changes, it’s possible to keep your facial skin looking young and healthy.
Skin Concerns for Men
Men have many of the same skin concerns as women; primarily sun damage and environmental factors and aging skin.
Sun Damage and Environment
Your skin is a complex living mechanism with cells that regenerate every 30 days or so. New cells come to the surface and flatten to form the top layer of the epidermis, while older cells are constantly being shed. From the moment you step outside in the morning, your skin feels the effects of the environment. Pollution, toxins, wind, and UV rays known as free radicals cause undetectable damage. Unlike women who may wear makeup with an SPF on a daily basis, many men do not use daily sun protection. Without protection from the sun, harmful ultraviolet rays (UV rays) can cause sun damage, wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Intrinsic factors in the natural aging process also play a role and can contribute to enzyme loss, reduced collagen and dehydration. This combination of factors can speed up the development of free radicals, blocking skin cells from performing at their best and ultimately leading to a decline in elasticity, resilience, tone and texture.
But environment isn’t the only factor that damages skin; our facial expressions also accelerate the aging process, resulting in the development of fine lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet. As we age, the rate of healthy young cells that migrate to the topmost layer slows down, which makes skin look dull. Additionally, over time our skin becomes thinner and drier. We also lose collagen, the main structural protein in connective tissue that provides our skin with a plump healthy appearance.
Facials for Men
A facial nourishes your brand-new skin cells, providing increased blood circulation and helping to remove the dead cells on top of your skin. Facials can also treat a myriad of skin problems including facial and body acne, sun damage, age spots, dry skin, broken capillaries, fine lines, and signs of aging.
Your skin condition and age will partially determine how often to get a facial. Depending on your skin type and skin care goals, you may need only a monthly facial or multiple treatments over a period of months. At True Med Spa, your medical aesthetician will set up a facial treatment plan that will give you the very best results for your skin care goals.
Benefits of Regular Facials for Men
With regular facials, you benefit from the expertise of a medical aesthetician and brighter, healthier skin. A cleansing and skin evaluation allows for a custom evaluation of specific conditions like dry skin, broken capillaries, age spots, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles. How often you need a facial depends on your skin care goals and can be discussed during a consultation.
In addition to a targeted skin care regimen, regular facials also exfoliate your skin which can make you look younger and healthier. Exfoliation removes the top layer of your skin primarily consisting of dead skin cells. Exfoliation is either a mechanical or chemical process that works to remove dry, dull, or dead skin cells and reveal healthy skin underneath. Mechanical exfoliants are scrubs or other course products that rub away dead skin. Chemical exfoliants are acids and enzymes that slough off dead skin.

Facial Rejuvenation for Men
At True Med Spa, we also recommend the anti-aging treatment with Plasma Rich in Growth Factors PRGF®, one of the latest advances in facial anti-aging. This new technique uses the growth factors (bio-stimulating substances) from a patient’s own plasma in order to stimulate and accelerate tissue regeneration. The patient’s isolated plasma is applied to the face, neck and neckline skin in order to stimulate tissue regeneration, producing an increase in the skin’s thickness, smoothness and luminosity along with mitigating the effects of the aging process.
This anti-aging treatment activates tissue regeneration can counteract degenerative changes in the skin from the third decade of life, improving the tone and skin elasticity. We recommend this procedure for all men ages 30 and over.
