Most Sought-After Skincare Procedures for Men in Bangalore

Men can take care of their skin by picking the best skincare products and undergoing a dedicated treatment by a skin doctor. They can explore the following non-surgical cosmetic dermatologist services:

  • Medical facial

Also known as medi-facial, is a skincare treatment that utilises cutting-edge technologies, researched protocols, and science-based ingredients to treat facial skin problems. This relaxing and rejuvenating skin care procedure is specially designed to target skin woes faced exclusively by men like dehydrated/dull skin, acne and its scarring, sun damage, ingrown hair, razor burns, sensitivity, roughness, and pigmentation.

Medical facials are more effective than generic salon facials. It uses a mixture of technologies like lasers, hydra dermabrasion, light devices, and water jets to improve skin texture and tone, boost collagen synthesis, and speed up cell turnover. It does not involve the use of very mild or pampering skincare products and so is effective in treating specific skin problems.

Men’s medical usually lasts for 30-60 minutes. It is recommended to be consistent with the treatment to get visible skin improvements. It can even be undertaken in every change of season to prepare the skin well for upcoming environmental changes.

  • Laser skin treatment for men

Laser skin treatment can be performed to get rid of many kinds of skin flaws. It is highly recommended for men having skin irregularities like acne, skin blemishes, ageing skin, and prominent scars. In laser therapy, certain areas of the skin are targeted with controlled laser beams that get absorbed by melanin in the skin. As a result, there is a selective thermal injury of the targeted skin which peels off the affected/damaged skin layers to reveal healthy, fresh skin from underneath and even encourages collagen remodelling.

  • Laser hair removal for men

Laser hair removal is one of the easiest ways to permanently remove unwanted body and facial hair. Dealing with unwanted hair on the back, chest, shoulders, and underarms can be difficult, stressful, and embarrassing. Dr. Dixit Cosmetic Dermatology Clinic offers long-lasting solutions for men, so they no longer have to deal with shaving, inexpensive devices, waxing, or home kits to get rid of it. Visit the clinic to find your way to smooth skin, permanently.

  • Chemical peels for men

Chemical peels are the acid solutions which when applied on the skin can exfoliate the skin to leave behind a refined and clear skin. Men find this skin resurfacing procedure helpful in improving how their skin looks and feels.

Chemical peels can make skin brighter, hydrated, clear of congestion or oiliness, rejuvenated, evenly toned, and smoother. Therefore, men opt for chemical peels to enhance their skin tone and texture, reduce their acne and its scarring, treat their sun-damaged skin, reduce their signs of ageing, enhance penetration of their skincare products, and improve their shaving experience. Having clear, radiant, younger-looking skin boosts their confidence.

There are three types of peels based on the strength of acid and the skin’s penetration ability: mild, medium, and deep. For men, quite popular peels include mild and medium peels like lactic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and TCA. The dermatologist selects chemical peels based on the skin being treated. The procedure usually takes 10-15 minutes and can be done in combination with medi-facial or laser skin treatment.

  • Thread lift for men

Thread lift is a collagen-stimulating skincare treatment that may be a non-surgical anti-ageing solution for men. This treatment precisely targets the common, mild to moderate signs of ageing resulting from collagen degradation and volume loss. The procedure involves placing absorbable, barbed PDO threads into the sagging skin with the help of tiny needles and then pulling and locking the inserted thread into place. This creates a lifted, tighter, and more defined appearance.

Furthermore, in the site where threads are inserted, the thread material dissolves and encourages natural healing of the site by fresh collagen production. The treatment takes about half an hour to get over and its results can last for 1-3 years.

Skincare Routine For Men

An effective skincare routine involves four steps: cleanse, exfoliate, tone, and hydrate/moisturise. To craft a perfect skincare routine for men with any skin type, it’s important to take note of what their skin needs, when they require it, and which and how much product is required to be used.

For healthy and glowing skin at all times, men have to follow these steps:

  1. Cleanse- A skin-purifying, gel-based cleanser must be used to wash your face in the morning and before bed at night. It helps eliminate dust, impurities, extra skin oils, and surface dead cells.
  2. Exfoliate- This step must be practised regularly, once or twice a week, to get rid of dead skin cells and make the skin pores squeaky clean while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, do avoid physical scrubs or home remedies as they may cause the skin to get damaged and go dark. Instead, use glycolic or salicylic acid over peel at home. 
  3. Moisturize- Skin requires a daily dose of hydration to keep the moisture content and pH level of the skin in balance. This is provided by the use of pure and active, water-based skin toner. With toner, the pores of the skin get tightened which helps the skin from getting impacted by environmental conditions.
  4. Sun-protect- Sun protection is the most important step in skincare. Choose a sunscreen that suits your activity. SPF with visible blue light filters for men who work indoors and Broad spectrum for outdoor activities, with frequent reapplication is recommended before starting any skin care procedure. 

Using moisturiser is better than alcohol-based aftershave These moisturisers help restore levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps keep the skin hydrated, plump, and full, by allowing water retention in the skin The selected moisturiser must have a sun protection factor (SPF) to help block the harmful UV rays of the sun from causing skin damage. Sunscreen must be worn every day before getting out in the daytime to protect the skin from the sun.

Apply skin care products containing antioxidants like Vitamin C after cleansing the skin and before moisturising it in the morning. Antioxidants help fight damage caused by free radicals.  
Apply reti-nol-based skincare products at night to address concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.
