We often hear about the latest skin care lines and products for women, but lately there has been more and more advertising targeted at men. Why is this? For starters, men need to keep their skin hydrated and protected just like women. However, in the past, using lotions, creams and Botox was considered un-manly. Times have definitely changed and not only are more and more men are looking for skin care solutions, but more solutions and treatments are now available. This is why Dr. Nhi Le of the Fountain of Youth Med Spa in Victoria, TX offers a variety of skin care products and treatments for men.

There are varieties of lotions for men available now, but the one type of lotion that most men can agree on is the cancer and aging protection.  One of the biggest concerns men have about their skin is the threat of skin cancer and wrinkles. The easiest way to avoid this is to protect your face daily. These daily lotions typically not only provide an SPF of 10 or above, but also moisturize your face to keep it hydrated, without clogging pores; without being  greasy, oily or smelly; and free of irritating chemicals. Dr. Nhi Le recommends Solar Total Block Tizio3.

Another skin care concern that many men deal with is acne. Not only do young men and teenage boys suffer from acne, but adults as well. Dr. Le recommends Neostrata for oily or acne-prone skin. Neostrata is a soothing, enriched emollient cream designed to exfoliate and restore the skin. If you are looking for a treatment for your acne, rather than a skin care product, then consider Dr. Le’s micropeel, which can help clear up your skin in a matter of weeks!

Nowadays, men are doing more than simply turning to skin care products. There are various treatments available to help reduce wrinkles, problematic acne or acne scars, as well as sun spots or brown or red pigments. Cosmetic lasers have advanced dramatically in the past decade and Dr. Le offers some of the best laser technology, such as Fraxel and Matrix RF to treat acne scars, IPL Photofacials for sunspots, or a Hydrafacial to simply refresh your face.  Even Botox and fillers are becoming more popular among men. In 2001, 106,000 men received Botox treatments, compared to 856,000 total treatments. The number of men using Botox jumped to 300,000 in 2007 and 700,000 in 2010.

The Texas heat can be brutal on your skin and face, especially if you’re a man who does little to protect it. Skin cancer is a serious threat that no man should take lightly, but the good news is that you can easily protect yourself, not only from cancer, but also from acne and aging.
