male maintenance everyday essentials ideal for the groomed man

Male maintenance once consisted of nothing more than a shave and haircut when necessary and a bit of deodorant. Thank goodness times have changed!

Today, grooming includes skin care and anti ageing routines albeit far more simple than that of the ladies. The modern man who embraces male maintenance practices has been dubbed the metrosexual male and we’re okay with that! In fact, maintaining a youthful appearance has become as much a part of every man’s daily routine as dressing well.

But, with so much advice available, many men are overwhelmed and often uncertain about how to approach their grooming.


Male maintenance and skin breakouts

The most common skin concerns that men struggle with are acne and acne scarring, razor bumps and ingrown hairs. Let’s not forget hair issues such as include bushy eyebrows, nostrils and ears and hairy backs and necks, and the onset of ageing.

When the skin reacts it is often an indication of an imbalance within the body. For instance with acne or pimples, it is usually telling us that something is not functioning optimally inside the body.

A proper digestive and hormonal system is the foundation for a healthy body. It, therefore, makes logical sense that if you don’t have a healthy system, it can’t function as it’s designed to. For this reason, alone it is vital to ensure that the gut is in good health. Once the internal systems function properly, the appearance of the skin will automatically improve. A gut health test can be done with one of the integrative doctors on the team at Health Renewal.


Skin solutions

Acne is successfully treated topically using a number of chemical peels. Treatment depends on skin type and the severity of the condition involved. A series of treatments can drastically improve the condition of the skin.

Acne scarring can be treated by skin needling procedures such as Dermapen, Mesotherapy, or the latest Platelet Rich Plasma facial, which is also known as the vampire facial.


Hair Maintenance

Unwanted hair on the face or body does not contribute to a groomed look. Fortunately, there are now options to have this unwanted hair removed on a permanent basis. Alternatively, consider a little “manscaping” at your local salon.

Laser hair removal is proven successful at to permanently remove hair on the back and neck. Whereas bushy eyebrows can be trimmed, and hair in the nostrils and ears can be managed by waxing.


Injectables to slow the onset of ageing

Men are able to defy the signs of ageing by making use of Botox® and fillers. However, men want to maintain their masculine features whilst softening their wrinkles. Lessening the signs of ageing while holding onto their rugged features.

Men’s muscles are stronger than those of women, therefore, men require more Botulinum Toxin , than a woman.


In conclusion

Certain treatments can only be administered by medical doctors. Furthermore, peels and lasers are dangerous. Therefore visit an aesthetic clinic, get a full assessment and an individualized treatment package for your specific needs.
