Secrets Revealed: What Men Really Want

How many times have we heard the phrase, “All men want is sex”? It’s a popular stereotype, but there’s much more to the psyche of the male species than that. Just like their female counterparts, men want to look their best, regardless of their age. They want to feel competitive in the boardroom and desirable in the bedroom. (Ooops! Back to sex again.)

According to a survey published in Allure Magazine regarding men and cosmetic procedures:

  • 31% of men said they would consider a cosmetic procedure
  • About half said they would have a treatment “to feel more confident”
  • 25% said they wanted to look younger in order to stay competitive professionally

We Know Men at Ultimate Skin & Body

Simply put, men want to look as young on the outside as they feel on the inside. Ultimate Skin & Body Clinic has helped thousands of people in the Gold Coast area do precisely that. “Our team understands the nuances of various procedures as they apply to different genders and that’s critically important in achieving the best possible outcome,” says clinic owner Deb Farnworth-Wood. She notes that:

  • Male skin tends to be about 25% thicker than female skin.
  • Men generally require a larger dose of an anti-wrinkle injection than women because male muscles are usually larger.
  • Men have higher collagen density in their skin.

Facial Rejuvenation: When You’ve Got Skin in the Game

In the digital age, online dating profiles, business websites, and selfies have made men especially interested in facial rejuvenation. They are eager to combat the ageing effects of sun damage, environmental stressors, and gravity, such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Saggy skin
  • Hyperpigmentation (dark spots)
  • Tired-looking eyes
  • Enlarged pores
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Dull, dry skin

Facelift surgery is one answer to these problems, but many men want to avoid the cost, risk, and downtime associated with invasive procedures. For them, Ultimate Skin & Body suggests the established world of cosmetic injectables…

…and the emerging world of high-intensity focused ultrasound.

Facelift without Surgery for Men

Our 8-point non-surgical facelift is one of our most-requested treatments. Carefully placed injections of dermal fillers help our male patients contour a sagging chin, re-define cheeks, and voluminise tear troughs. Especially appealing to the “working man” is the fact that this face-saving treatment is a walk-in/walk-out procedure that requires no downtime.

Sticking It to Men’s Wrinkles

Men are typically concerned about the ageing effects of dynamic wrinkles such as forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Anti-wrinkle injections prevent those lines from forming by temporarily paralysing the muscles that create them. Treatment time is abbreviated and there is no downtime afterwards. “Our skilled injectors know where and how best to place the injections to minimise any redness or swelling,” says Deb.

A Strong Jaw Is Just an Injection Away

A strong jawline has traditionally been associated with strength and masculinity. Dermal fillers combined with anti-wrinkle injections “can provide better definition to the lower face and also reduce the appearance of jowls,” says Deb. Fillers are especially useful to help men broaden jaws that have collapsed over time. The treatment takes approximately an hour and guys can return to their normal activities immediately.

Giving a High Five to HIFU

Researchers in a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found that high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) devices are “proven effective in body sculpting when used noninvasively to reduce subcutaneous fat and improve body contour (after a single session).” Like other treatments, a HIFU device safely ‘injures’ the treatment area to trigger your skin’s natural regeneration responses. A full-face treatment with this revolutionary handheld device takes approximately 45-50 minutes and will smooth, brighten, and firm skin for up to 3 months with no downtime required.

It’s Time to Man Up

The treatments above are a small fraction of what we can do to give men what they want.
