Summer Skin and Body Treatments For Men
Treatment Options for Guys Who Want to Look Their Best in Warmer Weather
Summer is the perfect season to take some time off for yourself.
It’s a season to relax, enjoy some much-needed downtime, and get out in the sun.
But while there’s always a lot of focus on what women can do to look and feel their best in the summer sun, what about the men?
The fact of the matter is that there are plenty of treatments that the guys in our lives can enjoy! Best of all, these treatments won’t eat up a ton of time and get results fast.
So to all the men looking for a bit of self-improvement and self-care this summer—this one’s for you!
Treatments Aren’t Just for the Ladies
Let’s get this out of the way right now: women are generally primary audience for cosmetic treatments, they’re certainly not the only audience.
In fact, cosmetic treatments are quickly rising in popularity among men, with 31% of men now considering some sort of cosmetic treatment in the future.
It makes sense! Guys deserve to look and feel great, too, and a killer beach bod or even something as simple as a skin treatment can go a long ways to helping with confidence.
Plus, many cosmetic treatments today are minimally invasive, which means they have very little downtime and are easy to recover from.
Whether you’re interested in reducing the amount you sweat, removing unsightly hair, or contouring your body, there’s a treatment for you.
EMSCULPT – What Is It?
EMSCULPT is a revolutionary, technologically-advanced method of sculpting your body. Through EMSCULPT, you can build muscle and reduce fat—all without surgery and without having to go to the gym.
How Does it Work?
EMSCULPT causes high-intensity muscle contractions, which work out your muscles without any effort on your part. In 30 minutes, you’ll experience tens of thousands of muscle contractions—much like getting thousands of sit-ups or crunches done. Not only does this build up the muscle, but it also sends signals to the surrounding fat tissue to start to break down for energy.
While it may take months to see results with traditional exercise, many people will start to see results within a few days of EMSCULPT treatment. EMSCULPT usually consists of several treatments that take place over the course of a few weeks, after which the area will be toned and tightened. Fat removal treatments just remove fat: this actually builds muscle.
Who’s it For?
EMSCULPT is for anyone who wants to tighten up their muscles and tone their body, especially those who have been struggling with problem areas that they want addressed. It is usually ideal for those who have only a moderate amount of weight that they want to lose; men with more significant amounts of weight to lose will enjoy modest benefits, at best.
Botox for Sweating – What Is It?
You may have already heard about Botox for the removal of wrinkles, but it’s used for something else, too: sweating.
Many people have over-productive sweat glands, which can be frustrating and embarrassing to deal with. Do you know anyone who deals with frustratingly sweaty pits? Luckily, they don’t have to. Botox can be used to shut down over-productive sweat glands, keeping you cool and dry in any situation.
How Does it Work?
Botox is injected directly within target areas. If you have excessive underarm sweating, then the solution would be to inject Botox in armpits. Once injected, the Botox blocks the nerves that are responsible for excessive sweating. You won’t experience any significant pain—just some minor discomfort, itching, or irritation around the injection sites. This should go away within a couple of days.
These injections aren’t permanent: eventually they will wear off. Botox treatments need to be repeated anywhere from 4 to 14 months after the initial treatment. They tend to be a little less effective for palms.
Who’s it For?
Botox is frequently used for excessive sweating either under your arms or on your palms. It’s a fairly non-invasive treatment: it’s just a set of injections on the targeted site. If you feel that you’re sweating excessively, this is a fast option. It’s effective in nearly all cases and it’s effective immediately. It’s especially ideal if you hate leaving people with wet palms after a handshake.
If you’re interested in Botox for underarm sweating or general sweat production, you can see a specialist to find out whether you’re a good candidate.
Laser Hair Removal – What Is It?
If you want to permanently remove hair, you can—through laser hair removal. Laser hair removal burns the follicle of the hair, preventing that follicle from continuing to grow hair. If you’re tired of shaving and plucking, this is the right solution for you.
How Does it Work?
Laser hair removal works by using a laser that targets the melanin found within hair itself. This heats up the hair, which damages the surrounding follicle. Once the follicle is damaged, it can no longer grow new hair.
Laser hair removal isn’t always 100% effective, which means you may need multiple procedures to make sure that all of your hair stops growing back. Nevertheless, it’s a very effective way to permanently remove your hair.
There is some discomfort associated with laser hair removal, though it’s usually likened to being snapped with a rubber band. It’s not severe, but may be more severe in sensitive areas.
Who’s it For?
Laser hair removal for men is for any man who has hair that he regularly removes—and who wants to be free of that constant grooming exercise. Laser hair removal can be done on any hair, including sensitive areas. Numbing creams can be used to reduce any discomfort.
Maintenance and hair removal can take a long time. If you feel like you would be better off dealing with the situation forever, laser hair removal is your best bet.
If there are things that you’re interested in correcting, don’t waste any time. Everyone deserves to feel like their best self, and it’s easily achievable through modern medical treatments.
