For the final day of this “Skincare and Laser Treatments for Men- Not Just For the Ladies Anymore!” blog series, we will focus on laser technologies which will deliver the quickest and best results, for whatever condition you are wanting to treat. Whether your concern is brown spots, red spots, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars or just an aged appearance, there is a laser treatment for you.

VBeam- Pulsed Dye Laser: Sun damage not only presents itself in the form of brown pigment on the skin, it can also present itself as redness. Broken blood vessels around the nose and cheeks are a common issue for many men. This can be an easy and quick fix! VBeam laser directly targets blood vessels, causing them to noticeably shrink, even after the first treatment. Little to no downtime and a quick office visit it all it takes! Depending on the severity of the vessels, the number of treatments varies person to person, but typically ranging from 2-4 treatments.

IPL- Intense Pulse Light: IPL laser can gently treat the stubborn and bothersome brown spots that sneak up on us over the years! All of our beloved outdoor activities, golfing, boating, biking…create years of wear and tear on the skin presenting itself as splotchy brown spots. Brown spots on the skin can be quickly and effectively treated in as little as one treatment. There is minimal downtime, meaning returning to day to day life immediately post treatment.

Fraxel- Fractionated Resurfacing Laser: The big kahuna! Fraxel is an all-encompassing laser treatment used to treat signs of general aging. Texture, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, brown spots, and all over skin tone is improved with one to two treatments. With just a few days of healing, your skin will have an all over refreshed and renewed look as well as a softened texture. One of our male clientele favorites!

Day 2 of our “Skincare and Laser Treatments for Men- Not Just For the Ladies Anymore!” blog series addresses a second anti-aging treatment method- Chemical Peels.

Chemical peels can be a great quick fix for many reasons. They provide a quick and thorough exfoliation in just a few short days. Skin will appear rejuvenated and refreshed with little to no downtime.

At SkinSpeaks, we offer two different chemical peel options; the Vitalize Peel and the Rejuvenize Peel, both by SkinMedica. Both peels will smooth the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and roughness. You will see noticeable results after just one peel, however we do recommend a series of peels to get optimal results. Whether you have mild to moderate damage, or moderate to severe damage, we have the peel that is right for you.

As always, call 952.435.6565 to request a complimentary consultation!

Aging affects us all. But don’t feel left out guys, we are here for you, too! Today is day one of a series of three blogs related to our first ever Men’s Month at SkinSpeaks! We will be focusing on non-invasive, anti-aging treatments that are quick and generally have little to no downtime.

Aging presents itself on the skin as fine lines, wrinkles, redness, brown pigmentation, and dull, rough skin. There are several different treatment options when dealing with aging skin. Skincare products, chemical peels and laser treatments are the most effective options and we will describe each in more detail in the coming blogs. These treatments require a minimal amount of downtime, allowing life to get back to the normal grind in as little as 45 minutes.

Today, let’s briefly mention the simplest way to start treating aging skin- skincare products. Skincare products include cleansers, moisturizers, antioxidants, SPF, retinoids, and Alpha Hydroxy Acids.

Cleansers- proper skincare begins with clean skin. Removing impurities is essential to prepare your skin for other products that applied.

Moisturizers- regulate, strengthen and protect your skin from everyday enemies. They can soothe irritated, dry or red skin.

Antioxidants- prevent brown spots, wrinkles, and the breakdown of skin by fighting free radicals. Vitamin C is the most common antioxidant in skincare, and it helps create collagen, a must for aging skin.

SPF- prevents against skin cancer, uneven pigmentation, wrinkles and the breakdown of collagen.

Retinoids- smoothes skin texture, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, reduces brown spots, balances oil production, and creates a youthful glow.

Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA)- dissolves the “gunk” that builds up between your skin cells that prevents products from penetrating. AHA’s are also a natural humectant, helping keep skin hydrated.

It sounds confusing, how do you know where to start? That’s the easy part! Come in for a complimentary consultation with one of our amazing aestheticians, and they will do the hard work for you, recommending only the products you are looking for. Our staff has handpicked a collection of the most efficacious skincare products available and know that expensive does not always mean better. We don’t believe in complicated skincare regimens that are destined to fail, but instead provide a customized approach. So, whether you want to start slow, or get a full treatment regimen right away, give us a call at 952.435.6565!
