Why Every Man Should Invest in Skin Health
I have seen thousands of patients walk through our doors ever since I started my practice. While each person’s skin and concerns are unique, everyone is searching for one thing: to look and feel their best. Across the cosmetic and aesthetic industry, we’ve seen a huge uptick in men opting for skincare treatments and regimens, and the same can be said here in the greater Birmingham area. More men are taking interest in their skin’s wellness, hoping to restore or maintain that confidence they had when they were younger. Investing in your skin is something everyone should do, so today I wanted to talk through why it’s important for men to consider their skin health, some common treatments available at Seiler Skin and my own personal approach to skincare.
The first thing to remember is that your skin health is just as important as any other area of health in your life. We eat well, exercise, take vitamins and visit our doctors to make sure everything is in check — so why not do the same for your skin? This taboo of skincare being reserved for women, or that it’ll be too noticeable of a change for men, needs to be tossed out the window. We design regimens which will produce natural-looking results that’ll leave people thinking you haven’t done anything different! Everyone needs to be taking the time to care for their skin, because it’s what we live in day in and day out and deserves to be taken care of.
Another important reason to take care of your skin whenever possible is that prevention is the best means of avoiding not just common aesthetic concerns, but also potentially harmful diseases. Take UVA and UVB exposure for example. While we may just appear tan over years and years of lying in the sun, under the surface damage can build up within the layers of the skin. This could result in things like melanoma and other forms of skin cancer, which are some of the most common types of skin cancer people experience and can be deadly. Investing in your skin now can prevent harm down the road and ensure you’re healthy for years to come.
Now, you may be thinking — I’m a guy, what treatments could I benefit from? Here are just a few of the ones offered at Seiler Skin that our male patients tend to love:
- Botox – Yes, this treatment is used for men and actually increasingly popular among male patients in the industry. Botox injections can reduce and prevent the lines created by repeated muscle movement and preserve your youthful appearance, all while giving a natural look and feel to the face. My conservative yet effective approach will yield natural results that don’t come off as a drastic before and after.
- HydraFacial – The HydraFacial is perfect for giving your skin a deep cleanse, ridding it of impurities and bacteria gained from working out, being active or just going about your day.
- P-Shot – This truly state-of-the-art treatment has been used at our practice for years to treat concerns such as erectile dysfunction or simply increase sensitivity and pleasure in the penis. Don’t fret — we have a full breakdown of how this procedure is safe, painless and effective!
- Vampire Facial – Using the power of platelet rich plasma (PRP), this treatment revitalizes the skin and addresses concerns such as acne scarring, sun damage, discoloration and more. It’s become one of the most popular treatments among men at our practice, given the incredible results and minimal downtime.
It’s also important to develop a regimen for yourself, whether it’s just a few quick go-to’s or something more built out for your specific needs. Our team is trained to work with you in developing tailored regimen, but just as a preview check out the one I myself use on a daily basis:
Guys, let’s make one thing clear: skin wellness has no gender or sex, and should be a priority for every single person. Don’t let taboo or stigma convince you otherwise, because your skin health is important each and every day.
