Men, take note. Before the festive season catches you unaware one more time this year, it’s a good idea to go for facial and body treatments while there is still time.

You could opt for a photofacial or microdermabrasion or may be chemical peels to get rid of excessive sun damage on skin and get acne scars or blackheads removed.

Thirumal Raj, founder of Advanced Beauty and Cosmetic clinic, suggests what can be done for best results.

1. Photofacial

This is a skin rejuvenation treatment done to minimise wrinkles, age spots and other signs of ageing.

It helps getting rid of excessive sun damage on skin along with broken capillaries, acne, brown spots and birth marks. Men should ideally shave four to five hours prior to the treatment. This is a quick and painless treatment that assures effective results in 15 days.

2. Microdermabrasion

This non-surgical cosmetic procedure helps to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells. Exfoliation materials like aluminium crystals or diamond flakes are used along with a machine-based suction to gently lift up the skin.

This skin treatment erases acne scars, removes blackheads and gives a polished look to the skin. A face treatment can last up to 30 minutes and if you’re keen to get other parts of the body treated, then it may last an hour.

3. Chemical peels


One of the economical ways to reduce fine lines under the eyes or around the mouth and treat your acne-prone skin is by opting for chemical peel treatment.

The dead skin layer peels off and what you get is smoother and less-wrinkled youthful skin. This is a non-fussy procedure, which may take up to 30 minutes.

4. Laser hair reduction

All those men looking for fuzz-free back and chest, or keen to get rid of excess hair on the face, shoulders and ears, laser treatment works best for you.

The treatment helps to remove unwanted beard hair from the neck and cheeks. The treatment reduces the thickness of the hair and neatens the beard line. This reduces the frequency of shaving and diminishes rashes and unkempt hair.

There are other minimally invasive treatments for treating dark circles, sun spots, sagging jaw line and more. Even anti-wrinkle treatment such as Botox, and soft tissue fillers to fill hollow areas are quite popular among men to acquire youthful skin.
