Where in the past, a man might be ridiculed and accused of being “vain”, today it has become acceptable and common for him to walk into an aesthetic clinic seeking aesthetic improvements.
At Amaris B. Clinic, we believe that everyone deserves to look and feel good. Accordingly, the extensive range of treatments we provide does accommodate to a man’s needs as well. Consequently, we have been seeing a rise in the number of male patients seeking appearance improvements and in addressing clinical issues like gynecomastia.
Gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, is more than just an appearance issue. It is a medical condition and is fundamentally, the presence of excess glandular and/or fatty tissue in men. Hormonal imbalance, side effects of certain medications and ageing are just some of the plausible causes of this condition, which also known as “man boobs” in common lingo.
Exercise and diet, unfortunately, are not remedies for this condition, and the only proven treatment is gynecomastia surgery. Gynecomastia surgery involves the removal of the excess glandular tissue, which results in a more sculpted and well-defined chest while tightening the skin at the same time.
It is important to understand that there is a difference between gynecomastia and pseudogynecomastia, of which you will be better advised during consultation.
Acne For Men
Acne is a skin condition that transcends the genders and hence, men do get it. Acne develops when dead skin and oil clog up the pores. Acne can appear on the face, back, shoulders and neck. The main concern with acne is the scars and marks it leaves behind, which lamentably is the result of skin trying to itself.
Good personal hygiene practice complemented with a healthy lifestyle and diet can help in the prevention of acne, but for those who are affected with acne scars and marks, help comes in the form of skin dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing and even dermal fillers treatments. The ideal treatment is dependent on the severity and needs of your condition.
Dark Eye Circles
The condition is called “dark eye circles” because of the dark shadows created by the way light falls on the hollow areas under the eyes. Dark eye circles are at times inevitable, given the less-than-desirable lifestyle that a man may lead. Volume loss due to ageing, nasal congestion and allergies are also other causes of the condition.
Eliminating bad habits like smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, not getting enough sleep and reducing others like your caffeine intake goes a long way in preventing their appearance. But for those affected, the effective fix comes n the form of tear trough filler treatment.
Tear trough filler treatment results in a more youthful appearance. Do note that only a doctor with the appropriate training and qualifications can perform this injectable treatment.
VASER® Hi-Def Lipo
A well-sculpted and defined physique is arguably high on most men’s appearance aspiration list but unfortunately, at times is hard and even impossible to achieve. Not everything is impossible.
VASER® Hi-Def Lipo is a body contouring procedure that can help create a sculpted physique. It can be performed on multiple areas of the body and targets the superficial layers of fat residing directly over the muscles and eliminates them, resulting in an improved appearance. Think of it as removing “what’s not” needed so the “what is” can be seen.
VASER® Hi-Def Lipo is however, not a weight loss solution and should not even be considered as one. It is primarily a body contouring procedure to help you achieve a more defined appearance.
VASER® Lipo effectively removes unwanted and stubborn fat, which is a common issue for men as well. Just like VASER® Hi-Def Lipo, it too can be performed on multiple areas of the body.
VASER® Lipo is a less invasive form of but more precise than the traditional liposuction, requiring lesser downtime. It is mainly used to eliminate fat, whereas VASER® Hi-Def Lipo is commonly used for body contouring (although VASER® Lipo is also a body contouring procedure to an extent) to bring about a more defined and sculpted physique.
Despite their differences, VASER® Lipo is also not meant as a weight loss solution, particularly for obesity.
Wrinkles and ageing are like two peas in a pod, to say the least. We may not be able to stop time from passing, but there are still things that can be done to address its harsh effects.
4D Fluid Facelift, Ultra V Lift and Botox are just some of the treatments that are available at our clinic. These treatments effectively address the issue of wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful and pleasant appearance – even men understand the need to look good.
There is nothing wrong for a man to walk into an aesthetic clinic to address their appearance issues. Looking good most often lead to feeling good, and that is something that everyone deserves, regardless of gender.
