Skin Care Regimen for Men

scottsdale facial for men

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.

Aging Skin

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.

Anti-Aging Facials for Men

True Anti-Aging facial in effectively hydrates skin and promotes clear and younger looking skin. This facial includes antioxidants such as Citamin C and/or hyaluronic acid that nourishes the skin to promote clear and well-hydrated skin. Our Anti-Aging Facial is an excellent skin treatment for men looking to keep their skin looking young and healthy.

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.

Botox and Fillers for Men

The Truth About Preventing and Treating Crow’s Feet

crows feet treatment downtown scottsdale

We have all seen the those fine lines around our eyes. Perhaps we see them more on a day when we’ve been squinting in the sun or when we haven’t gotten enough sleep – crow’s feet. Radiating from the corners of your eyes, crow’s feet are among the first wrinkles to develop in men and women. Crow’s feet usually develop in your 30s but can develop years before depending on your lifestyle and genetics. Crow’s feet can prematurely age us and while they may not bother some, most people would prefer them gone.

So what causes crow’s feet and what can be done to prevent and treat them?

Causes of Crow’s Feet

Eye wrinkles can be caused by a number of things. Factors that influence our propensity to get crow’s feet include genetics, squinting, sun exposure, sleeping on one side of your face, and free radicals.

The most common cause of crow’s feet is sun exposure, both in the form of sun damage to your skin and squinting in the sun. Repeated and habitual facial expressions like squinting is a major cause of wrinkles and fine lines anywhere in the face but especially around the eyes. In addition to squinting, sun exposure over time leaves our skin dried out, making us more susceptible to the fine lines of crow’s feet.

Preventing Crow’s Feet

Your eyes are the first thing that people see, so you want to make sure you keep the skin around your eyes looking good.

Preventing wrinkles before they emerge is the most important step in skincare. Although it sounds like crow’s feet are inevitable, the good news is that you can work on preventing crow’s feet before they start. The earlier you work to prevent these fine lines from developing, the less you will have to work to treat them later.

There are some basic things that you can do to try and prevent wrinkles and even to prevent further damage to your skin. The best thing you can do to prevent crow’s feet is to protect your skin from the sun. This includes using both SPF or sun block as well as wearing sunglasses or hats to shade your eyes from the sun. Wearing sunscreen and also large sunglasses that cover the sides of your eyes will offer some protection from the sun’s damaging rays as well.

Another way to prevent crow’s feet is to sleep on your back. People who sleep on their backs tend to have fewer wrinkles than those who sleep on their side or stomach. The reason for this is because pressure of sleeping on your stomach or your side causes your skin to push into the pillow and mattress. Over time this pressure causes wrinkles on the delicate skin around your eyes.

Drinking plenty of water will also aide in keeping your skin hydrated, which is critical in preventing wrinkles. Doctors recommend eight glasses a day or more for dry climates like the climate in Scottsdale.

Crow’s Feet Treatment Options

While prevention is key, what do you do if you already have crow’s feet? There are treatments that work well in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

BOTOX® is effective in treating crow’s feet. A neurotoxin, BOTOX® is used to treat a variety of medical conditions but it is often used to improve the look of wrinkles on the face. An extremely common area for BOTOX® treatment is the area around the eyes. *While results vary from patient to patient, most people see the results of BOTOX® for crow’s feet.

During the one session treatment, BOTOX® is injection into the three main areas around both of your eyes. The injection works by reducing the muscle activity and lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment for reducing the apparance within two weeks after treatment.**

True Med Spa is experienced in using BOTOX® to treat and lessen the appearance of crow’s feet. Learn more about BOTOX® here or request an appointment for a consultation today. 

Botox Treatment in Downtown Scottsdale

You may have been thinking about getting BOTOX® lately but you are still unsure. Hopefully this post will give you some answers and help you determine if BOTOX® is right for you.

BOTOX® is the one and only FDA approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults. BOTOX® is a medical prescription and can only be administered by a licensed medical professional like the doctors at True Med Spa.

BOTOX® is a neurotoxin that can treat a variety of medical conditions like excess sweating and overactive bladder, but is most commonly used to improve the look of wrinkles on the face. Many men and women use BOTOX® as a part of their anti-aging regimen. The injectable can be highly affective to reverse the hands of time especially when used with other anti-aging treatments and a strong skin care routine.

Is BOTOX® right for me?

Anyone can receive BOTOX® treatments but it is important that you discuss whether or not you are an ideal candidate with your doctor. People who suffer from certain medical conditions like ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome should not receive BOTOX® treatments and you should also avoid treatment if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. 

Schedule a consultation with True Med Spa to determine if you’re a good candidate for BOTOX® injection.

BOTOX Injection Sites

BOTOX Forehead Injections

One of the most common areas for BOTOX® treatment is the forehead for horizontal wrinkles and in between the brow area for vertical wrinkles known as “11s”. BOTOX® targets one of the main reasons for forehead wrinkles, which is the overuse and repeated frequent use of specific muscles that cause frowning or squinting. As your doctor injects BOTOX®, they will work to temporarily reduce muscle activity and thereby reducing the appearance of those lines.

BOTOX Around Eyes

Another very common area for BOTOX® treatment is in the area around the eyes for the treatment of crows feet. Your doctor will inject three main areas around both of your eyes. By injecting BOTOX® ® into those muscles around the eyes you will be reducing the muscle activity and lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

BOTOX® in Lips

Both men and women experience fine lines and wrinkles around their mouths. Wrinkles can occur from a multitude of different causes including sun exposure, smoking, or simply as a result of aging. The doctors at True Med Spa can use BOTOX® around the muscles of the mouth to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles as part of your overall anti-aging treatment plan. Doctors should use caution when using BOTOX® around the mouth as a little goes a long way.

BOTOX® Eyebrow Lift

Doctors are using BOTOX® to help achieve the look of an ‘eyebrow lift’ without the surgery by injecting BOTOX® into the area surrounding your eyebrows. Your doctor will have to have a very detailed understanding of the underlying anatomy of the brow area and he or she will be sure to take a look at each individual’s eyebrow movement. Your doctor will then carefully inject BOTOX® in the muscles around the brow and ideally it will cause the eyebrow to rest in a higher and lifted position, giving you the look of an eyebrow lift!

There are other areas that can be treated with BOTOX® so be sure to consult with your medical professional about treatment options for you. If you are in the Scottsdale area, be sure to reach out to our team to schedule your free consultation and see if BOTOX® is right for you.
