Men's Skincare: Breaking Stereotypes and Building Effective Routines

03/06/24 | 2 MIN READ

World-famous celebrities or just your average guy next door, every male wants to look good. So good that Brad Pitt, Harry Styles, Alex Rodriguez, Machine Gun Kelly, Idris Elba, Pharrell and Michael Strahan have all launched their own lines of men’s skincare products. That’s a group easily described as “cross-cultural,” and it says everything about how broadly men’s skincare has taken hold.

So, are you getting with the new routine? Or are you still treating your skin like it doesn’t matter?  

Simple Steps to Take at Home (pssst – no one will know)

You already have an established daily routine – you shower, brush your teeth, etc. So what could be easier than adding a few quick steps to keep your skin healthy and youthful looking? For men, a daily skincare routine can be as simple as:

  •       Washing your face (not with that harsh shower soap, but with a kinder, gentler cleanser)
  •       Moisturizing (your first line of defense against dryness that comes with aging)
  •     Sunscreen (because the sun can damage skin or every type and color, not to mention the risk of skin cancer)

For even better results to look your best and combat signs of aging, add a couple steps to your routine:

  •       Exfoliate weekly with a product that scrubs gently but effectively to remove surface debris and dead skin cells
  •       Apply a cream specially formulated to nourish your skin

Skincare Is Self Care

More and more men are going beyond at-home skincare, taking advantage of the services and treatments available at medspas such as our own Rocky Mountain Laser Aesthetics. Not only are they seeing the benefits of personalized skin improvement and rejuvenation treatments, they’re feeling the benefits of relaxing in a stress-free environment.  

So, what skincare opportunities await men at our medspa?

Products recommended just for you

Men’s skin is different from women’s, in ways that matter when it comes to skincare:

  •       It’s oilier, with a lower pH that encourages acne and other impurities. (On the plus side, men are less prone to dry skin.)
  •       It’s about 20% thicker and contains more collagen. Natural reduction in collagen production happens consistently over time, whereas with women it starts slower but picks up speed, especially after menopause. The net effect is that men may look younger as they start to age, but once signs of aging set in they can progress faster.

Just because your favorite celebrity is backing a particular product line doesn’t mean those products are just right for your skin. A personal consultation and Visia® skin analysis with one of our expert paramedical aestheticians can help you understand your skin on and below the surface. That helps you know which skincare products will be most effective for your skin and age. The medical grade products we recommend are typically more concentrated than over-the-counter or online options.

In-office treatments

Non-invasive or minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatments can help significantly improve your skin tone and texture, so it appears smoother, brighter and more youthful.

  •       Chemical peels
  •       Microdermabrasion
  •       HydraFacial MD
  •       Chemabrasion
  •       Microneedling

Laser treatments are great for minimizing:

  •       Acne and acne scarring
  •       Fine lines and wrinkles
  •       Age spots and other types of discoloration

To address these issues, we offer:

  •       Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
  •       Profractional
  •       MicroLaser Peel
  •       Triple Peel that incorporates all three of the above treatments in a single session

And no one knows better than you that shaving stresses your skin. Laser hair removal can help eliminate that problem, not to mention all the other hassles associated with shaving every day. Laser hair removal can also permanently tidy your hairline and neck.

We also offer specialized treatment such as our Diolite laser to eliminate spider veins and other small, isolated imperfections

Men’s skin may age slower than women’s, but one day you will inevitably look in the mirror and see sagging and wrinkles. Why sit on the sidelines waiting for that day when you could take action right now to boost your skin health and appearance? It’s never too early – or too late -- to get started on a lifelong skincare routine.
