Father’s Day is just around the corner, how are you planning to celebrate that special man in your life this year? If you are struggling with what to get Dad or any of the guys in your life and know socks or ties just aren’t cutting it, we are right there with you (and we are sure they are too).
So, why not think outside of the box and surprise him with something unique. Cosmetic treatments aren’t just for women and more and more men have begun taking better care of their appearance, so we wanted to share some ideas with you to help your special guy look and feel his best!
WHY “BROTOX” MIGHT BE THE PERFECT GIFT THIS FATHER’S DAY
Botox for men (Brotox) may sound like a joke, but the reality is that a lot of men want to look younger and feel more attractive. Botox treatments relax facial muscles and minimize fine lines and wrinkles, easily taking ten years from your face. At one point of time Botox was primarily for women, but over the past decade, Botox usage among men has increased significantly. But it’s not just Botox—men’s cosmetics in general have grown because they have finally lost the stigma associated with femininity. It is true that beauty spans all genders!
Many men use Botox for the crow’s feet around their eyes, as well as forehead wrinkles. Dads can address other areas for treatment as well based on the results he desires. Botox lasts anywhere from three to four months.
One of the biggest perks is that Botox achieves natural results and helps men look like younger versions of themselves with no downtime.
DERMAL FILLERS RESTORE VOLUME AND CREATE A MORE ATTRACTIVE PROFILE
If your father or significant other is interested in restoring their skin to a more youthful state, then you might want to suggest dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are another common injectable that targets wrinkles and other signs of aging. These injections use hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin to encourage healthy skin growth. While a single treatment might not fully address facial wrinkles, dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvéderm can give long-lasting results and ease the appearance of fine lines.
It’s also non-invasive, non-surgical, and requires zero downtime. Fillers are a quick and effective way that dads can subtly enhance their appearance. Results from a single treatment may last up to one year, so your man can enjoy younger-looking skin for several months to come.
Yes…. HydraFacial’s are for men also so why not pamper Dad this Father’s Day? A HydraFacial will help to deep clean bumps and soothe irritated skin. The combination of cleansing, exfoliation, extracting and hydration that is applied during a HydraFacial will address a big question we often hear from men – how to get a smoother shave! The smoother your skin, the better and less painful your shave will be. In addition to smoother skin, HydraFacial improves fine lines and wrinkles, stimulates collagen production to enhance elasticity and firmness, smooths skin texture, lightens brown spots and hyperpigmentation and soothes acne-prone skin.
They will immediately see the benefits of the HydraFacial and wonder why they never did if before!
CHEMICAL PEELS FOR FACIAL REJUVENATION
A chemical peel is like a hardcore facial. If your guy is interested in more noticeable results, sign him up for one as soon as possible! They are superficial procedures, but target skin deeper than a facial would. Chemical peels every 6-8 weeks can maintain your skin, keeping it healthy and glowing. If you can get your guy hooked early, he’ll be on an excellent path toward healthy skin. Chemical peels also treat signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, some types of acne, scarring and irregular pigmentation of the skin.
Best of all, these treatments often only take a half-hour or so, so they won’t take up a huge chunk of his day.
Microdermabrasion is technically a type of facial, but rather than cleanse and exfoliate the skin with creams and serums, this process removes dead skin cells using an abrasive surface, basically “sanding down” one’s skin. Much like a chemical peel, microdermabrasion results in the emergence of newer, younger-looking skin. In this case, though, the older skin is removed physically, not chemically. After this minimally invasive procedure, your special guy may notice an improvement in their wrinkles, acne scars, skin tone and texture, and overall complexion.
MICRONEEDLING FOR MEN IS BECOMING THE NEXT TREND
More and more men are discovering the wonder of Microneedling. This is a non-surgical procedure that can improve skin tone and texture, diminish wrinkles and fine lines, soften acne scars, and reduce discoloration with minimal downtime. Plus, Microneedling offers men a safe and natural way to enhance their appearance because the treatment uses the body’s own healing mechanisms. Microneedling is an exciting treatment that has very little downtime but visible results by creating tiny channels through the skin by infusing serums and active ingredients more efficiently. This treatment will also stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture and tone.
MEN WANT GREAT SKIN TOO
Men often overlook the importance of skincare but it’s still just as important for them. A basic skincare regimen suited for a man’s lifestyle should include cleansing, exfoliation, sebum control and anti-ageing.
A proper medical grade skincare regimen can create and maintain healthy skin for your guy regardless of age, ethnicity, unique skin condition, or skin type so they can greatly benefit from regular at-home care.
Men can have lifestyle and behavior changes that can make their skin needs unique. For example, beard grooming and shaving can impact the skin, as well as exercise and sports activities, diet, and other factors, causing dryness, sensitivity, and irritation. Additionally, due to higher amounts of testosterone, men have more active oil glands than women increasing chance of breakouts, shine + large pores.
Remember, healthy skin starts with the basics. Establishing a regular routine of cleansing, exfoliating, and toning can bring skin to a balanced state, which can promote a clearer complexion and a more even skin tone. We love our ZO Skin Health Getting Skin Ready “GSR” kit to get him started.
Antioxidant products can minimize premature signs of aging + keep skin youthfully healthy. Men’s Health magazine recommends Daily Power Defense, a powerful antioxidant serum that supports skin’s natural restoration process. This powerhouse product supports skin barrier function and offer hydration benefits, antioxidant properties and gives skin a healthy glow.
