Instead of socks and aftershave this Fathers Day, why not treat your beloved dad to something different?
We thought the lead up to Fathers Day on Sunday 18th June would be the ideal time to spread the word that there are many aesthetic treatments and skincare products for men that can further improve their appearance and make them look and feel the best they can for their age.
Thanks to celebrities such as David Beckham and Bradley Cooper, there has definitely been a change in attitude towards male grooming. It has become very acceptable with many men now having a number of products stacking up on the bathroom shelf that would give their partner a run for their money.
Fathers Day – what products would we suggest?
Men often complain that their skin can be very sensitive, especially after shaving. If you were to invest in one thing, we would definitely suggest a gentle cleanser such as the Obagi Gentle Cleanser. This can easily be incorporated into a daily routine as it can be applied and washed off in the shower. The cleanser will work to keep the skin clean and prevent the build-up of oils and dirt which can cause blocked pores, spots and blackheads. It will also help to soothe the skin after shaving and make the skin far less irritable.
He could go one step further and also incorporate a facial scrub to use a couple of times each week. We would recommend the Agera Microderma Rx System which is an exfoliating Vitamin C treatment that can be used at home. It buffs away old skin cells, leaving the skin radiant and smooth. The product also helps prevent ingrowing hairs which can be the bane of many men.
To finish off, a Sun Protection Factor of 50 should always be applied to the face to protect the skin against UVA and UVB rays which damage and prematurely age the skin. We would recommend Heliocare Gel Oil Free which is non-greasy, not tinted and will both protect and moisturise his skin.
Aesthetic treatments for men
Men can look seriously attractive as they age and a few lines will actually add warmth and character to the face. However, an overactive facial muscle can result in an unwanted trait. For example, a deep line between the eyebrows can make somebody look permanently irritated and a severely lined forehead can easily add on 10 years. These lines can be softened with Botulinum Toxin (Botox) injections and a natural looking appearance and balance restored to the face.
This is the perfect treatment for men who need a deep cleansing treatment without it feeling like they are having a spa facial. The procedure is suitable for all skin types and leaves the skin clear, bright and polished after just one treatment.
As men age, they will start to develop lesions and bumps that were not on their face and bodies in their younger years. These can easily be removed using Electro Surgery. This very effective treatment can remove a whole host of pesky lesions such as facial thread veins, milia (white spots) and senile warts to name a few.
These are just a few example of the treatments that Absolute Aesthetics provide that are suitable for men. If you would like to know more, contact us via email or telephone 01483 477 189 or 020 3757 7178.
