Have you ever tried to get your male counterpart in for a skin treatment? It’s not that easy - we get it. Some men think they don’t need it, some may have considered it but are yet to make that appointment, and others will give you that same look they gave you when you asked them to have a vasectomy!
Perhaps if they understood the benefits to their skin health, they might just reconsider.
Men differ from women when it comes to their skincare goals. Whilst women often worry about fine lines and wrinkles, men often complain about looking tired or have concerns such as acne scarring and flaking skin.
Men often perceive smooth, supple skin as being too feminine and worry that this may see them lose their rugged masculinity. What they don’t realise is that a good skincare routine can actually sharpen or strengthen their face.
Due to their testosterone levels, men tend to have more oil in their skin which means their skin doesn’t age as quickly as female skin. Daily shaving, however, can over exfoliate epidermal cells, which can cause irritation, transepidermal water loss and sensitivity, especially to sun exposure, all of which can lead to collagen degradation and a ruddy, aged appearance.
If your man has a skincare regime, it would usually consist of soap and a moisturiser, but often they forget to incorporate sun protection on a daily basis, which will protect their skin from the sun’s damaging rays.
When male patients visit us at JVDT, we find they like fast outcomes with minimal visits and short downtime – some probably would prefer a secret entrance (which we have by the way)!
After an initial complimentary consultation to find out their personal skin issues and requirements, we often recommend an appropriate skincare regime that is easy to manage at home. This usually consists of a good facial cleanser, an antioxidant sunscreen for use during the day and a vitamin A cream for night-time use. We only set realistic goals that they can achieve.
Once they are comfortable with their daily skincare routine, we can then discuss other in-clinic treatments including our Signature Dermal Therapy Treatment, light peels and Laser Genesis.
Once your man sees the improvement in his skin health, he will have no reservations about maintaining a good skincare regime.
That’s why we choose our product range based on ingredients rather than brands. We let science tell us what works, then select the most effective products from an array of highly respected skincare brands to ensure you receive the skincare industry’s very best.product ranges
“What sets James Vivian Dermal Therapies apart from other professionals in the beauty industry is the incredible lengths the team will go to in caring for their customers.
In my initial consultation, I was prescribed products suited to my skin and my dermal therapist conducted research on the ingredients in my existing products to discover where I was going wrong. I’ve never encountered such initiative, ‘go the extra mile’ or genuine sincerity for customer care. It set the relationship and won my loyalty.”
"James Vivian Dermal Therapies has taken my skincare to the next level with access to the latest skin technology set in a beautiful calm environment. I appreciate the honesty, passion and the post consultancy care. James Vivian Dermal Therapies gets the results I look for and I recommend the clinic to everyone.”
“I am totally blown away by James Vivian Dermal Therapies’ Signature Dermal Therapy Treatment. Since the treatment, my skin became smoother by the day and it looks like new. It’s visibly clearer. I’m truly amazed.”
“I had only had one visit to James Vivian Dermal Therapies and then had a bad experience with another beautician who gave me a facial with terrible side effects. I contacted the clinic and the team were so supportive throughout the whole experience. Having professionals that I can trust is so important to me, especially professionals who are supportive and caring, which seems to be rare.”
“James Vivian Dermal Therapies offers a skin experience like no other. I can honestly say that I have never felt more confident in recommending the clinic’s expertise after seeing the incredible changes and rejuvenation in my own complexion. James Vivian Dermal Therapies is my go-to skin saviour and the results speak for themselves.”
“Due to my busy schedule as an actress, I’d never prioritised my skincare needs, and with so many products on the market I was confused about what to use. This all changed when I visited James Vivian Dermal Therapies. My therapist’s knowledge, experience and expertise simply blew me away and made it so simple and easy! I now understand the importance of correctly managing my skincare and the value of professional advice.”
“I found out I was pregnant just days after my first appointment at James Vivian Dermal Therapies. I called James regarding the homecare products he had prescribed and he recommended that I bring them back so he could substitute them with ‘pregnant friendly’ products to ensure I could safely achieve the skin I wanted throughout my pregnancy. I was so impressed. Later, when I ended up in hospital for weeks on end, James moved heaven and earth to treat me in my hospital room. It meant the absolute world to me.”
"James Vivian Dermal Therapies’ greatest strength is the genuine care and consideration evident when delivering individualised skin assessments and treatments.”
"I never imagined that a chemical peel could be a relaxing experience. The treatment is relaxing, yet effective, and my therapist always checks in to see how I am feeling."
