Men + Aesthetic Dermatology?
10 years ago, it was the rare man who dared venture inside a dermatology clinic for more than a medical problem. Mostly I’d see young guys who were too embarrassed by lingering acne NOT to do something.
Today I’m seeing 10- 15 new male patients a week… for all the nonmedical maladies that have bothered them for years — Acne, aging, veins, hair, scars, wrinkles, frown lines, leathery skin. What I hear is “I’ve been wanting to do something about this for years!” And what I see is how relieved they are they finally took that first step and made a call.
The top 3 reasons men have for delaying looking into “getting work done”
1. Concerned about possible pain
2. Embarrassed about asking about fillers, etc.
3. Don’t want to appear vain
Vanity aside, for a man or woman, the entire goal of aesthetic dermatology is to help you feel better about yourself! And you can – in a safe and comfortable environment where your concerns are always taken seriously and treated with the respect they deserve.
There are so many solutions available now that put a stop to those nagging issues, there’s really no reason not to choose one. Treatment Guide
