Spectra Laser Peel: Cutting Edge Skincare for Men

Body image isn’t just a female issue. It’s 2017, and being a guy that cares about his appearance is something you shouldn’t be ashamed of.

Being concerned with your looks isn’t just skin deep. Satisfaction with your appearance can build self-confidence, improving others impressions of you and your overall happiness

Men take a different approach to their look than their female counterparts, often focusing on their physique and health. So if you’re working hard on your body, it’s time to take the next step to incorporate some of that hard work into your skin.

The new Spectra Peel by SKYN® is the more masculine approach to skin care. It’s perfect for guys looking for a quick procedure with long term results and no down time. This means no messing about with daily moisturisers or regular facials.

This versatile machine works by application of laser energy that breaks up pigment, that is then carried away by your body and heats the skin causing it to contract, while at the same time stimulating the building of collagen. The Spectra Peel gives you smooth skin, reduces fine lines and acne scars resulting in healthy skin to complement your healthy body.

In Pursuit of a Chiselled Jawline

In the last 10 years, men have become the fastest growing demographic for aesthetic treatments.

Some men are born with weak chins. While others lose their strong jaw lines as they age, with skin sagging, leading to the softening of facial contours.

A well-defined chin and a strong jawline is the most sought-after look in most men. Because not everyone is blessed with a strong jawline, non-invasive aesthetic treatments have become the norm amongst most men, who are now more willing to seek help from their aesthetic doctors for fillers and wrinkle relaxers.

After all, with a few injections and no downtime, you can walk out of the clinic after a lunch-time procedure, looking more masculine and attractive.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are one of the more popular injectables. They add volume and lift to the skin instantly, achieving masculine facial contours.

Another bonus of Premium Dermal Fillers is that they stimulate the skin’s own regeneration abilities – new collagen is produced over the weeks and months after treatment, making the skin stronger and more elastic. The treatment results are long-lasting, but not permanent.

Injectable fillers are mostly made up of hyaluronic acid, which your body produces naturally—it’s what keeps your skin smooth and plump (read: young-looking).

Time: 10 – 15 minutes
Cost: from $400

What Next?

Dermal Fillers are non-invasive treatments that can be administered in your lunch break. At SKYN® for MEN our Doctors offer a free no obligation consultation to determine what treatment is right for you. Our Doctors are committed to providing clients with the highest standards of aesthetic treatments.

Our focus is on natural masculine looking results. No one needs to know, you will still look like you, just better.

Here’s Exactly How Women Want You to Groom

Men, one of the main reasons we heterosexual females like you is because you’ve got lots of testosterone. You’re a man, after all. It’s kind of a major selling point. But with all the goodies that come with testosterone (muscle development and sex drive) there also come things like body hair and body odor.

These aren’t necessarily negatives. But it’s a major misconception that men who practice proper hygiene are somehow effeminate or less “manly.” There’s nothing “girly” about taking care of yourself. In fact, it’s a major turn on. So please don’t take offense to this. It’s not that we women think you’re disgusting; in fact, we’re rather fond of you—and your bodies. But if you really want to seal the deal, or at least get past a first or second date, you might want to take note of the following.

MANSCAPING

Let’s get this immediately out of the way: We do NOT hate your body hair. Not even a little bit. In fact, it’s pretty damn sexy … to a point.

Pubic hair comes with the territory of being a full grown adult and that is entirely understood. However, it would behoove you to keep it in check. The easier it us for us to find what we’re looking for, the happier we both shall be. There’s no reason to go so far as eliminating it entirely or waxing it into endearing shapes. (In fact, please don’t do that.) But as long as we can find it … and tend to it … without needing a treasure map, we’re going to be a-OK.

BACK HAIR

Get rid of it. And we mean all of it. Immediately.

CHEST HAIR

Here’s where you can work with what you’ve got. If you’ve got chest hair, be proud of it! Chest hair is a turn on. It’s part of what makes you a man. Trimming it to avoid that year-round Mohair is certainly appreciated, but by no means do we need you to pull a Steve Carrell in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” and wax it all off.

BEARDS

A man’s beard, to a woman, is entirely subjective. Like men in general, they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. If you have one, how you trim is it entirely up to you, but all should be well-washed and void of food scraps. (You’d think this would be a given, but you’d be surprised.)

I realize this is vague advice, but a beard is a fine work of art, subject to style and taste, and no one beard suits all. And if you are going to exercise your right to have a beard, there is one thing all women can agree on: soul patches and chin straps have got to go. You are not a Backstreet Boy. (Although if you were, we’d probably make an exception.)

NAILS

A man who doesn’t shy away from getting dirt under his fingernails is a sexy one. But after you’re done hauling the lumber or dry-rubbing the beef, you best clean up. We love your hands, and we love your hands on us. We just don’t want whatever you were working on to end up inside of us.

You don’t have to go as far as getting a manicure or pedicure if you are on top of the situation—but we certainly will not think any less of you if you go this extra mile. Clean hands and feet says a lot about the rest of your body.

TEETH

If we’re kissing you and you aren’t a regular flosser … we can tell. And it’s gross. Bacteria accumulates quite quickly between your teeth between meals, and brushing doesn’t get all of it. Fun fact: There’s nothing sexy about licking a mouth full of bacteria.

COLOGNE

We like a man who smells good. We like smelling like you the next morning, especially if it was a memorable experience. But if we can still smell you burning the inside of our nostrils for days after our date, that’s something we can do without.

To master the art of cologne is to master the art of subtlety. Too much suggests overcompensation for something—whether that’s lack of bathing or anything else one might have to overcompensate for.

CHAPSTICK

Use it. We want your lips on a variety of our parts. Parts that want to be touched softly.

EYEBROWS

Like your nether regions, we don’t ask that you frequent the regular waxing salon. No need for Penelope Cruz eyebrows. (Please don’t have Penelope Cruz eyebrows.) When it comes to brows, there’s really only one rule to follow as a man: There should be two of them.

EARWAX

Experts advise against using Q-tips to clean your ears, so follow these instructions to remove earwax the right way. We’re not saying you will 100 percent get laid with clean ears, but you 100 percent won’t get laid without them. Not unless you’re really, really funny.

3 Style Tricks to Look More Muscular

MH fashion expert says these clothes will make you appear bigger (in a good way) – by Paige Carlotti

Whether you’re a hardgainer or already jacked, most of us would gladly take a little more muscle. But are your clothes making you look smaller than you actually are? Don’t let that happen.

Here are three style tricks for maximising the muscle you already have.

1. Study the Seams

Check where your shirt’s seams line up on your shoulders. If they trickle right below, then it’ll look like you aren’t big enough to fill out your shirt, says Brian Boye, Men’s Health’s executive fashion director.

But if the seams lie squarely on or just above your shoulders, they’ll look broader. “People will assume you’re so big that not even your shirt can contain you,” he says.

2. Find the Perfect Fit

A well-fitting shirt will accentuate your biceps and chest, but there’s a big difference between snug and skin-tight, says Boye. “Choose the size that hugs your arms and shoulders, but not your mid section.”

Go with a cotton T-shirt with a 1- to 5-percent stretch. Shirts in this range don’t wrinkle as much, and cling to your frame more than all-cotton tees, Boye says. He recommends the Pima Stretch Crew from Banana Republic or the Stretch T-shirt from H&M.

3. Pick a Strategic Pattern

You know that horizontal stripes make you look wider, and vertical stripes make you look taller. So if your goal is to appear bigger, pick patterns that stretch across your frame, rather than up and down, says Boye.

Find shirts with a darker colour on top and a lighter shade on the bottom. The dark hue stretching across your chest and shoulders will create the illusion of more muscle, he says.

Success Can Boil Down To Having These 9 Things

Talent, skill and a will to succeed is one thing but, according to a career expert and psychologist, it is confidence and perseverance that often separates the winners from the losers.

 

With a background in organisational and clinical psychology, Suzie Plush knows what is required to increase a person’s chances of professional and personal success.

With her experience working with some of the biggest corporate heavy-hitters in the country, like Westpac, Telstra and the Seven network, Plush has helped some of Australia’s most successful business people realise their potential.

GQ sat down with the confidence guru to find out how her tips can enable a person to channel their inner Harvey Specter and get more of what they want.

 

1.The essentials you need to stay strong, lean, and healthy – by Dr Christopher Mohr1. Build strategic relationships

By working with some of the most influential companies in Australia, Plush has observed that her successful clients place a premium on fostering meaningful connections and expanding their professional networks.

“They focus on building a good rapport with people in other industries as well as their own,” says Plush, “as they understand the value those relationships will bring.”

2. Be Assertive

People who want to be successful don’t shy away from valuable opportunities – in fact, they do the opposite.

“People who aim to increase their chances at professional success apply for different jobs, apply for promotions…they do what it takes to get ahead.

“This places them ahead of the pack by ambitiously striving to make the most of every opportunity, they are able to learn and improve upon their existing skillset.”

3. Have a personal brand

Knowing exactly who you are is central to ensuring professional success. According to Plush, this is grounded in “knowing what your strengths are…and knowing what is unique about you.”

When you have a strong sense of your personal brand, you are innately aware of what you bring to the table. As a result, you can “play to your strengths”, apply yourself more effectively and make a bigger impact.

4. Nobody’s perfect

Amongst her vast clientele, Plush has noticed that striving for perfection is a common error and can potentially hinder success.

“Some people can be very perfectionistic when it comes to their work “, says Plush, but constantly trying to map everything out perfectly puts you at risk of only “focusing on problems (instead of) solutions”.

A much healthier, more resilient approach is to be “creative with problem solving” when issues arise and remember to consider the big picture; this allows you to reflect on what you did well as opposed to purely fixating on setbacks.

5. Acting confident and persevering are central to success 

“Even highly successful people can lack confidence”, Plush explains, but the easiest way to build self-assurance is to “act confident” and continue to move forward.

“You don’t need to feel 100% confident before you take action”, Plush says, remaining in your comfort zone can prevent you from getting ahead and achieving your goals.

In the most challenging situations, it is crucial to back yourself, even when you feel the opposite – this is central to building confidence and convincing others to believe in you as well.

6. Have a go

Plush suggests that instead of always waiting for a “perfect opportunity”, having initiative and taking risks is essential if you want to reap the greatest rewards.

Things are not always as impossible as they seem – while it may be a bumpy (and slightly terrifying) process, the benefits outweigh the losses and there is considerable value in being courageous and just “having a go.”

7. Learn to fail, fail to learn

“Whenever you’re failing, you’re learning something”, Plush states.

While your ego may take a hit, we need to “embrace failure” – it builds courage and resilience, and failing ultimately allows you to reflect on what needs to be improved upon in order to ensure success.

“It’s about celebrating the effort invested versus the result gained” says Plush. “If you know that you were true to yourself…that you did everything within your capability and it didn’t work out, (then) you need to celebrate that fact that you tried”

8. Set goals and aim high

If you want to be successful, it is essential to go beyond the accepted parameters of your comfort zone.

There is an inevitable feeling of anxiety that accompanies ambitious goal-setting, but Plush believes that “leaning into the anxiety and doing things that scare you a little bit” can be beneficial in the long-run.

It is vital to “look at the bigger picture and always come back to your values”, and take the time to recognise what truly matters to you.

As explained by Plush, “values guide and goals drive” – constantly reminding yourself of your core values will aid you in your pursuit of professional success.

9. “Will this make me happy?”

According to Plush, this is the most common question her clients ask her.

Unfortunately, within the context of professional success, happiness cannot be guaranteed –  “it won’t always be fun but it’s about embracing the journey” and ensuring that you are “heading in the right direction.”

Plush believes that the “ultimate goal” should be becoming the person you want to be, and grounding your work and success in your personal values.

How to Get Away with Brotox (Wrinkle Relaxers)

More and more men are doing it—here’s how to do it right

Over the past few years, men have flocked to Wrinkle Relaxers. The fast, relatively easy procedure smooths wrinkles in your face—and no one ever has to know you did it. That is, if you get it done right. Here’s how to keep it masculine and subtle, according to the experts.

Step One: Find Your Doctor

You’ve heard the stories: a guy got Wrinkle Relaxers (Brotox)  and now his forehead doesn’t move. But is that really Brotox’s fault?

“My analogy is, when you look at somebody who has a bad haircut, do you blame the scissor or do you blame the hairdresser?” says Marina Peredo, a board certified dermatologist and founder of NYC’s Skinfluence. “Wrinkle Relaxer is a tool. It depends who’s injecting it.”So do your research. Find an older friend who looks great, buy him a drink, and ask if he’s ever had anything done—and by whom. (Or ask your dermatologist.)

Step Two: Get Ready to Invest

You’re buying a facial treatment that typically lasts three to six months for men. This isn’t the time to bargain hunt.

“When people say, ‘I only want to spend this amount of money’ or ‘I only want this much’—if you allow them to do that they’re almost always dissatisfied,” says Brendan Camp, a board certified dermatologist based in northern Virginia.

The problem, he explains, is that many men come in wanting to treat only the glabella, that furrowed area between your eyebrows. But if you do only that, you still have wrinkles around your forehead and eyes.

A holistic approach is better. Most estimates start at $300, then go up as you do more areas—and men are the most expensive.

“Typically men need more units than women,” says Camp. “First because their facial muscles are typically bigger and require more medicine, and second because their metabolisms can be faster so it may wear off more quickly, so they may need more frequent touch ups.”

Step Three: Make Your Wrinkle Hit List

Common areas of concern for men are:

  • frown/expression lines
  • crow’s feet
  • forehead creases
  • jawline
  • lines and wrinkles

“Men will get frown lines and forehead lines treated, just to not look angry,” says Peredo.

But the lines that make you look happy—leave those alone.

“I advise guys not worry about smile lines,” says Camp. “Distinguish between those and crow’s feet. When you grin, those are smile lines. When you squint into the sun, those are crow’s feet.”

Step Four: Decide Your Level of Frozenness

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room: How stiff is your face going to be?

“There’s a shift from facial paralysis to what’s called paresis,” says Camp. Translation: facial muscles are relaxed, but not asleep. “Some movement is still noticeable,” he says, “so it’s more natural.”

Think of it as a helpful alibi. You can turn to people and say, “If I’d had Wrinkle Relaxers, could I raise my eyebrow like this?”

Step Five: Maintain What You Bought

If you bought car, you wouldn’t wait for the engine light to come on. You’d take it for a tune-up before it needed one. The same is true here.

“Come in before your Wrinkle Relaxers wears off,” says Camp. “Or else you’re starting from scratch.”

Keeping up with your regimen can mean you require fewer units in future treatments. That means quick touchups—say, the kind you can sneak into your lunch hour. And consistency means people will be less likely to notice anything has changed about your face.

Now remember: We never had this talk.

Where to start?

Wrinkle Relaxers or Anti-wrinkle injections are a non-invasive treatment that can be administered in your lunch break. At SKYN® for MEN our doctors offer a free no obligation consultation to determine if Wrinkle Relaxers are right for you. After your discreet consultation, you have the option of proceeding with your treatment or booking an appointment in the future.

At SKYN® for MEN your procedure will be carried out by our Experienced Doctors, in a properly controlled clinical environment. It takes just 10-15 minutes to relax crows feet, forehead lines and frowns – with results that can last up to 5 months before your top-up is due.

How To Look Less Tired

Burning the candle at both ends is symptomatic of modern life. Relentless pressure to excel in the workplace has driven 13 per cent of us to put in at least 49 hours per week at the office, and 75 per cent of us manage to do so on far less than eight hours of sleep. Throw in the occasional bender, a gruelling workout schedule and the plate-spinning act that is your social life and it’s no wonder that “fatigue” is more of an epidemic than an excuse.

The telltale signs of tiredness run the gamut from the familiar (puffy eyes, sunken skin) to the plain dangerous (slow reflexes, hallucinations), and are often accented by a dangerously short temper. In the interest of preserving your health – and, indeed, that of those that come within punching distance – we have compiled some tried and tested lifehacks to keep fatigue at bay

Lay Off Stimulants

It may sound counterintuitive, but relying on stimulants to help you make it through the day isn’t the wisest idea when you’re running on empty. Jump-starting the body with caffeine or, indeed, the diabetic nightmare that is Red Bull will only ensure you crash ­– messily, possibly perilously – a matter of hours after consumption.

Energy is a cellular function that depends on the vitamins and minerals you have in your diet, and not on the amount of refined carbs you can scarf down in the blink of an eye. Ergo, when cells are fuelled in the correct way – ie, on a varied Low-GI diet – you feel energised and ready to take on the world. If your diet is poor, they’re likely to go out of business and leave you feeling lethargic and groggy.

A good-quality supplement will stand you in good stead. B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that the body cannot store for rainy days, so you’ll need to incorporate it into your pill-popping regime or, better yet, get it in injection form.

Learn The Art Of Power Napping

Afternoon siestas make perfect sense. A little power nap has been shown to improve logical reasoning, reflexes, mood, memory and learning. Crucially, naps also sort out tiredness more effectively than a long, deep snooze. Much like interval training, the trick to power napping lies in the duration and frequency of the naps. Sleep scientists concur that an efficient snooze should be somewhere been 10 and 30 minutes; anything more will cause you to feel even more sluggish than you were to before, a condition called “sleep inertia”.

The power nap was made socially acceptable after a Nasa study in 1995 that analysed the impact of siestas on 747 pilots. An average rest time of 25.8 minutes “demonstrated vigilance performance improvements from 16 per cent in median reaction time to 34 per cent in lapses compared to the No-Rest Group.” So, if HR haven’t installed sleep pods in your office yet, get on their case.

Hide The Signs

If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then your soul is desperately sleep-deprived and agitated. The skin that surrounds your peepers is so delicate and thin that even the slightest hiccup in your sleeping schedule will show up in the form of puffiness or, worse yet, dark circles.

Puffiness is a sign of fluid retention in the tissue, a condition that is exacerbated by a diet rich in salt and alcohol. The fluid can be drained by placing two freezer-fresh metal spoons on your eyes. Dark circles, on the other hand, are usually caused by dilated blood vessels that become visible beneath translucent skin. There aren’t any quick fixes for the latter, so a dab of Concealer (ideally one shade up from your natural skin colour) should at least help you “fake it to make it”.

Book a Free Consultation with a Doctor or Therapist to see if Medical Aesthetics are an option to look less tired

Treatments such as injectable fillers are mostly made up of hyaluronic acid, which your body produces naturally—it’s what keeps your skin smooth and plump (read: less tired!). As a result you’ll note differences immediately after the procedure. Our Doctors can inject dermal fillers underneath where the bag is (for tired eyes), to help lift it in a broad way so there’s no visible lumps or bumps. Other treatments to help you look less tired include:

SKYN for Men has wide range of options from chemical peels to cutting edge laser technology to rejuvenate your face help you look less tired and more energetic.

5 Men’s Beauty Tips You’re Too Embarrassed to Ask For

Sometimes guys are a little shy about asking for men’s beauty tips. I get that they fear it will make them feel a little less manly to have a bathroom full of “beauty” products, but who doesn’t want to look their best?

Tip #1: Get a Safer Shave

Most men aren’t going to trade in their razor and shaving cream and a lot of the ingredients in hair removal creams have been linked to cancer and hormone disruptions. You don’t have to give up the razor as your hair removal method of choice, but you can choose safer, natural ingredients.

You could make your own shaving cream or look for one with natural ingredients.

Tip # 2: Heal Dry, Rough Skin

You might love your “rugged” good looks, but you’d still like to find a safe and effective way to moisturise your dry, rough skin. You don’t need an elaborate skin care regimen for that. Just warm up a little unrefined coconut oil or jojoba oil in your hands and apply that anywhere you have dry skin.

If you’re serious about getting your skin in check Book a Free Discreet Consultation at SKYN® FOR MEN with a professional dermal therapist.

Tip #3: Minimise Wrinkles

Keeping your skin exfoliated and moisturised will do a lot to minimise and prevent wrinkles. The real key to youthful skin, though, is your diet and hydration.

What not to eat:

  • Cut back on meat and dairy products, which can age your skin. If you don’t think you’ll ever completely give up your “meat and potatoes” type of diet, you don’t have to. Just eat less meat (no more than once per day), and look for grass-fed, organic options.
  • Skip coffee and caffeinated tea because they can dehydrate your skin, among other problems.
  • Sugar and artificial sweeteners. Use Stevia or raw honey instead.
  • Fried foods

What to eat more of:

  • Cabbage. It contains tons of vitamin C and some vitamin A, too, both of which help erase lines. It also detoxifies the blood and the fiber helps push waste and toxins out of the body. Too many toxins in your body can actually show up on your face, making you look older than you are. Try eating some raw sauerkraut before dinner a few times per week.
  • Eat (or drink, in your shake) pears to get rid of nasolabial folds. Just be sure you use organic pears and eat the skin, since that’s where most of the anti-aging nutrients are.
  • Watery vegetables or fruits help with hydration, which in turn will make your skin look more youthful and radiant.

The results look natural. No one needs to know – you’ll still look like you. From just $150

Tip #4: Lose Weight with an Alkaline Diet

To lose weight, you need to give your body the best fuel and eat foods that will help push the toxins out. Avoiding the skin-wrecking foods mentioned in the wrinkles section will help a lot because they’re clogging to the body. Once you start to focus on whole, cleansing foods, your body will begin letting go of the fat that’s there to protect you from the chemicals and toxic waste you’ve accumulated.

Eat more foods that steer your body into a more alkaline state, which will help you drop the kilos more rapidly. Be sure to get more of these in your diet:

  • Leafy greens (including sea vegetables)
  • Ripe fruits
  • Sprouts
  • Non-starchy vegetables
  • Alkaline-forming grains, like quinoa and millet

You may also want to consider having a colonic to remove some of that old, acidic waste.

Tip #5: Dump the Baggage (Under Your Eyes, That Is)
