Everything To Know About Cosmetic Treatments For Men
Non surgical aesthetic treatments are not a taboo these days. More people are open to the idea of getting cosmetic tweaks to fix the tiny imperfections that have bothered them for so long.
Moreover, aesthetic treatments are no longer aggressively invasive like going ‘under the knife’ but instead, there are injections that get the job done quickly and more effectively.
However, any aesthetic treatments are going to alter your body both temporarily or permanently, and will be visible to the people around you. Hence, it’s best to do a lot of research on what kind of treatment would be the best for you and the best doctor to get it done from.
Dr. Bharti Magoo gets a lot of male patients and says, “These days, men are frequently utilizing these procedures to reverse their signs of aging.”
“The beauty of these procedures is that they help to tackle the skin damage caused by aging without using any invasive treatments,” she adds.
Further, she talks about the various cosmetic procedures that men opt for, to become the best version of themselves.
Wrinkle Relaxers are a powerful non-invasive treatment. “Treatments can effectively and more so, visibly reduce the signs of aging,” says Dr. Magoo. An injection is used to relax the tensed facial muscles that cause wrinkles, fine lines, and crows’ feet. Wrinkle Relaxers, under medical supervision and when administered correctly, yield a perfect result. Wrinkle Relaxers are also used to reduce armpit sweating.

Microdermabrasion is one such procedure in which the dermatologist will remove the outermost layer of the skin using a small tool. The new layer of skin, which is exposed, is fresh and more textured. This helps in improving the overall look by addressing the fine lines, wrinkles, scars, age spots, stretch marks and signs of aging skin. Exfoliating dead skin cells is a procedure that triggers cellular renewal: replacing the outer layer of skin for a fresh, healthier and more vibrant looking layer of skin.
