We zero in on three popular medical aesthetic treatments commonly requested by male patients at our clinic.
There used to be a stigma attached to males having aesthetic treatments. Today, it’s much more common for men to invest in themselves, whether it’s facials, cosmetic surgery, fat reduction or getting a tattoo removed. Often this is because they feel it might help their career progression – especially in jobs where first impressions matter; sometimes, it’s simply because they like to look good.
We zero in on three popular medical aesthetic treatments commonly requested by male patients at Amaris B Clinic, an integrated men’s clinic in Singapore.
Gynecomastia – or enlarged male breasts – affects almost 70 percent of adolescent boys, and 65 percent of middle-aged and older men. Ageing, side effects of medication, hormonal imbalance and a dip in testosterone level are common culprits. Main symptoms include the enlargement of the glandular tissue and tenderness in both breasts. While such symptoms are common during puberty due to hormonal changes, surgical intervention may be required to counter the condition if they don’t go away when one reaches adulthood.
Unfortunately, it’s impossible to get rid of gynecomastia just by working out – and if left untreated, it can adversely affect a person’s self-esteem and confidence levels. The predominant way to treat the condition is through gynecomastia surgery. The aim is to permanently remove the tissue and sculpt the chest area for a more defined physique.
Acne doesn’t just affect teens; it can plague adults too. Even when the inflammation clears up, you can be left with ugly scars and spots that often take months to fade.
Pico Fractional Laser treats acne scarring by first creating thermal injury on the targeted area. The injured skin will then trigger the body’s natural healing cycle, after which collagen production is stimulated; skin repairing and remodelling will occur.
Regret getting that tattoo? Instead of constantly finding ways to cover up, consider removing it permanently with Picolaser Tattoo Removal!
Picolaser Tattoo Removal is a Pico Fractional Laser is a multi-function laser that combines ultra-short picosecond laser and HEXA Laser Induced Optical breakdown (LIOB) to remove unwanted tattoos. The laser energy penetrates effectively into the skin, helping to target specific areas while minimising collateral damage to the surrounding tissues – which means less downtime.
After the entire course of treatment, the area loses pigmentation, resulting in a colour that’s lighter than the surrounding skin. Gradually, the treated area will even out and return to its normal skin colour over the next two to four weeks. For best results, you’ll need five to ten sessions, repeated every to four to six weeks.
