The Medicetics Man
This month, it seemed topical to blog about aesthetic treatments for men after our Medical Director, Dr Geoff Mullan, was featured in an article in The Times last week: “Meet the doctors behind the boom in cosmetic surgery”.
In recent years, more men than ever before are taking greater pride in their appearance. This trend goes hand-in-hand with the Insta-culture that we find ourselves living in, within modern society, resulting in a greater focus on the aesthetic and what people now deem to be the socially accepted norm. This, of course, adds on to the pressure to look our best and fit into a certain mould, a pressure that a lot of men have not felt before. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Beauty is simply about bringing out the best in you and enhancing your features; there is no right or wrong and there’s no shame in a little helping hand from us here at Medicetics. We’ve certainly noticed a surge in male appointments, and of course all of our treatments are just as suitable for men as they are women, but we’ve selected a few of our most popular recommendations for all of you guys out there, from anti-ageing and hair removal to body contouring:
Laser Hair Removal
One of the most common problems for men is unwanted body hair. Our advanced Ellman Cheveux II Diode Laser delivers energy pulses to disrupt the regrowth of hair in areas such as the back, chest and arms. This is a long-term, cost-effective alternative to time-consuming home hair removal methods, such as waxing and shaving.
There has been a significant movement in the number of men seeking anti-wrinkle Botox injections, spawning the term “Bro-tox.” The injectable solution consists of a purified protein that temporarily relaxes the muscles in specific target areas, such as the crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead lines. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while still maintaining facial movement.
Coolsculpting is an effective, non-surgical alternative to liposuction designed specifically to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that dieting and exercise alone cannot shift. Also known as fat freezing, this treatment involves a process known as cryolipolysis whereby fat is drawn into a vacuum before being exposed to low temperatures in order to destroy the fat cells. They are then disposed of naturally within the body.
For more youthful skin with long term results, we offer numerous skin rejuvenation treatments and techniques at Medicetics. From skin peels and mesotherapy, to an extensive range of skincare products from expert brands, such as Obagi Skincare. One of our personal favourites is the “red carpet” 5-step HydraFacial. Impurities are removed from your skin while critical nutrients and antioxidants are replenished using the Vortex-Fusion serum delivery system.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all that we have to offer here at Medicetics. We are a doctor-led clinic with a team of highly trained and experienced practitioners.
We take the time to discuss your treatment options based on your wants and needs before formulating a bespoke treatment plan that is best suited to you. You can book your consultation today via our website; we look forward to seeing even more men in our clinic!
