Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Brian S. Glatt, MD, FACS of Morristown often recommends medical grade skin care treatments as an integral part of his male patients facial rejuvenation. Male skin is physiologically different from women’s skin. A man’s skin has a higher concentration of blood vessels, especially around the cheekbones, is oilier, and is aggravated by daily shaving.
Medically supervised skin care treatments help to repair the damage of sun exposure and lessen the ongoing effects of aging. A combination of skin care treatments, such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion, coupled with professional grade skin care products will produce improvement in skin tone and texture.
Microdermabrasion, a treatment utilizing a spray of aluminum oxide crystals across the face, mixes gentle abrasion with light suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin cells and clean the skin’s surface. Multiple treatments will help reduce or even remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.
Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), such as glycolic, lactic or salicylic acids are the mildest of the chemical peel formulas that produce a light peel and superficial rejuvenation of the skin. These peels provide smoother, brighter-looking skin with no downtime. AHA peels may be used to treat fine lines, dryness, uneven pigmentation, and acne. Various concentrations of an AHA may be applied weekly or at longer intervals to obtain the best result.
