More than ever, our office has seen men come in for cosmetic treatments. Some are looking for a relaxing end to an exceptionally stressful work week, while others are hardcore skincare enthusiasts, excited to try the latest and greatest treatments. Whatever your reason, Northwestern Med Spa offers an exceptional array of skin care procedures to leave skin healthy and youthful.
For Those Who Are Oily/Breakout Prone – Men generally have skin that is thicker and more oily, which means traditional facials may not be enough to produce results. Our recommendation is to come in monthly for a Hydrafacial or Oxygeneo treatment. Both remove dead skin, reduce surface oil and promote healing if you have breakouts. For at home care, pick up Epionce Lytic Gel Cleanser, which will clear congestion and reduce surface oil, and NeoCutis Bio Gel, which moisturizes while imparting anti-aging peptides.
For Those Experiencing Fine Lines/Wrinkles – Fine lines have you looking more weathered than rugged? We recommend microneedling or Radio Frequency Microneedling treatments. Both treatments will promote collagen production and smooth texture. RF Microneedling has the added benefit of lifting loose skin, particularly around the jawline. Because cases vary, your aesthetician will recommend how frequent you need to come in for treatments. At home, we recommend using Refissa, a retinol, to further refine texture.
For Those With Redness/Uneven Skin Tone – Between late nights, sun exposure and Happy Hours, our skin can take a real beating. In addition to fine lines, skin can begin to look ruddy and uneven. We recommend a BBL (BroadBand Light) treatment to tackle both redness and pigmentation. BBL can help alleviate broken capillaries, redness associated with rosacea and sun damage. It is recommended to do a series of 3 treatments, but your aesthetician can advise based on your unique skin goals. SPF, such as Elta MD or Epionce Ultra Shield, will help prolong results from the BBL for both redness and pigmented cases. If you have redness, we recommend adding in NeoCutis Peche Redness Control serum to your day and night routine. Sun damaged skin should consider adding ZO Pigment Control Cream nightly.
