Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) December 19, 2007
Although historically the anti-aging skincare market has been aimed at women, beauty companies are realizing that men are equally as concerned with their appearance as women, and that includes their skin. Skincare-News.com's latest article, "Anti-Aging Skincare and Men: It's No Secret!" shares the various options utilized by men when it comes to both anti-aging and age reversal.
Men no longer limit their routines to soap and shaving cream; instead, men are embracing toners, moisturizers, manicures, facials and even plastic surgery. Spas are cluing in, offering treatments specifically suited to men's skincare needs, so it should be no surprise that men are also taking the next step by embracing age-reversal procedures, such as Botox cosmetic or micro-dermabrasion, as well.
Why do men need their own skincare lines? Firstly, it's a skin difference. Men's bodies have more testosterone than women's, which may lead to larger pores, oilier skin and acne. Men also have facial hair to contend with, which can introduce an entirely new set of problems. With this in mind, skincare products for men are often designed to provide lightweight moisture and anti-oxidant protection, with minimal smells or fragrances.
When it comes to packaging, skincare companies are also savvy to the differences between men and women. Bottles are efficient, names clear and unfussy, with precise directions and a minimum of frills and ruffles. Instead of small, dainty bottles, men's skincare tends to embrace larger sized bottles, typically made from plastic, or some other unbreakable material for ease of use and transport.
While the packaging may look and feel different, the active ingredients are extremely similar, and include such powerhouse anti-aging ingredients as: Vitamins A, C and E, glycolic and salicylic acid, grapeseed extract, Retinol and Matrixyl.
While investing in a few anti-aging products is easy enough, cosmetic treatments, which can temporarily reverse the appearance of aging, go further and require more planning and research. Yet plan and research they do; men have been seeking out professional treatments in increasing numbers, carving out the time and shelling out big bucks to improve the look of their skin.
The Menu: Age Reversal Treatment Options
Microdermabrasion uses fine crystals to gently buff away dry, dead skin and soften fine lines. And although it will not erase deep wrinkles or sagging, microdermabrasion will improve the overall clarity of the skin, yielding a brighter, clearer complexion.
Botox is used to 'freeze' or fill-out fine lines on the forehead and around the mouth and eyes. Botox is becoming increasingly popular for men due to it's quick application, minimal side-effects and long-lasting results.
A light chemical peel, which can be completed within the lunch hour, may be all that is needed to soften lines and refresh the overall appearance of the skin.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation aims to stimulate collagen production in the skin, the result of which will be a firmer, more toned appearance and fewer lines and wrinkles.
