Men and Modern Skin Care Products

Men are not afraid of great grooming products, but they do want a few things to hold true:

  1. They prefer products that will multi-task
  2. A simple regimen is typically best
  3. They will “steal” their significant other’s products if they don’t have any or have run out of their own

The bottom line is this – get the man in your life set up with his OWN perfect skincare so you can hang on to yours! Here are some popular suggestions…

  • Elta MD Foaming Facial Cleanser – $26 for 7 fluid ounces; Cleansing and shave cream in one!
  • MD Complete Eye Wrinkle Corrector – $28.99 for .5 ounces; Indestructible tube with antiaging benefits.
  • Elta MD UV Sport SPF 50 – $24.50 for 3 ounces; Sweat and water resistant for 80 minutes; perfect for the athlete.
  • MD Complete Retinol Vitamin C Concentrate – $28.99 for .5 ounces; The perfect all-in-one before-I-go-to-bed product, and recommended by Jason DeRusha on Twitter!
  • Obagi Pro C Microdermabrasion Polish + Mask – $68 for 2.8 ounces; It’s a scrub, it’s a mask, it’s a skin and day brightener whenever you crack open this new favorite; for when your skin needs the repair from what you did last night OR what you did 30 years ago.
  • Revision Revox 7 – $130 for .5 ounces; Put the peptides where you need them and watch your fine lines soften over time – take pictures for proof!

Cosmetic Treatments for Men

For years, women have been the dominant purchasers in the aesthetic dermatology market. Recently, we’ve been seeing a shift across the board with more men jumping in to treat themselves to a quality skin care regimen and rejuvenate their appearance with treatments like injectable wrinkle reducers, dermal fillers, and other cosmetic procedures.

From our male patients, we commonly hear comments such as:

  • “In my competitive career field, I need clients to focus on my results, not my wrinkles.
  • “I am sick and tired of looking tired!”
  • “I’m embarrassed to be sweating during work presentations”
  • “I want to take steps towards improving my appearance but it all seems to be made for women – what should I do?”

At Zel Skin & Laser Specialists, we offer a variety of treatments for men. Our injectable treatments, such as BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are a quick way to minimize wrinkles and look as though you’ve got a full 12 hours sleep, every night! Many gentlemen will have this treatment to soften the lines around their eyes, smooth their forehead and reduce the scowling look that ‘11’s’ can create in between the brows. Dermal fillers like Juvederm® can be used to create strength in the jawline and contour in the cheeks – leading to a more traditionally masculine facial shape. Men may also have their lips augmented with dermal filler to preserve their hydration and full shape.
Our office is also proud to offer miraDry®, which is a non-invasive, FDA approved treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in the underarms. Treatments are also available for men, and women, who may suffer from excessive sweating on their hands and feet as well.

We carry several lines of high-quality skincare including Skin Ceuticals®, SkinMedica®, IS CLINICAL®, Revision®, and MD Complete™ to help men, and women, put together their perfect skincare routine. All appointments are complete with a full skin care assessment and product recommendations.

Our Providers in Edina, Plymouth and Downtown Minneapolis are accepting new patients and appointments can usually be accommodated within one week!
