Anti-aging for men

Over the past couple years, there has been a rise in men’s grooming products and anti-aging care. According to Allied Market Research, it projects the men’s personal care market will reach $166 billion worldwide by the year 2022. Men’s skin care is trending, ergo the trend in men seeking anti-aging products and treatments. Collins Advanced Dermatology Institute has a bevy of anti-aging skin care products and treatments to choose from.

A simple way to start seeking anti-aging solutions is to start at a base level, like sunscreen. Sunburns and suntans permanently damage our skin’s DNA. UV rays break down the skin’s tissues and cause premature aging, and inhibit our skin’s ability to bounce back. The simplest and safest solution is to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen, with SPF 30 or higher. A great option, especially for an active lifestyle is EltaMD UV Sport. While EltaMD protects skin from the sun’s harmful rays, it also blocks free radicals that can cause skin aging. Patients can find a range of EltaMD products to suit their lifestyle and needs. While outdoors, daily application and reapplication of sunscreen, not only prevents against signs of aging but helps prevent skin cancer.

If seeking a solution to smooth existing fine lines and wrinkles, Botox® may be a good solution. Botox Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into the muscle and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and moderate to severe crow’s feet lines in adults. This results in a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

If injectables are not your preference, exploring alternative anti-aging treatments likes Ultherapy®, may be an option to discuss with a Collins’ Provider. Ultherapy is an ultrasound treatment using the body’s own regeneration response in order to lift the skin on the eyebrow and under the chin and neck, as well as smoothing fine lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. This non-surgical treatment requires no downtime. This is a good option for someone who is looking to see results without the downtime some anti-aging procedures can bring.
