In the past, there were often hundreds of new, innovative treatments introduced to beauty clinics and salons aimed at a female target audience.

Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is often associated with simply leg and underarm hair removal, however, can, in fact, be used to treat almost every area of the body. The new craze circling the beauty industry is the use of laser hair removal on the face to shape beards and maintain a clean beard line.
Being faced with the task of shaving your beard every morning can be incredibly tiresome, especially if you have to rush off to work in the early hours of the day. Not only does hair grow back within a few days, but rashes, shaving burns and irritation are just some of the additional problems that come alongside shaving. Hair often grows back coarser with a rougher texture.
On the other hand, opting for laser hair removal instead may take a little more time for full results, however, will be a long-term solution and your beard will always remain in perfect shape. During laser hair removal, a cooling gel will be applied followed by a specialist laser emitting pulses of light will be pressed onto the problem area. This damages the hair follicles from the root and impedes their future growth.

Laser Carbon Mask
Acne is a skin condition that is incredibly common amongst teenage and young men with most experiencing it severely between the ages of 16 and 19. Although acne becomes less common in their later years, many men are left with visible scarring, particularly around the cheek area. Many different treatments are promised to reduce the appearance of acne and scarring, with very little realistically making a long-term impact.
The laser carbon mask is a relatively new skin treatment, which utilises activated charcoal along with a powerful laser device to deeply cleanse the pores to not only reduce acne breakouts but make the skin smoother. Charcoal is used to gently draw out all of the dirt that clogs pores and attracts bacteria, lessening the likelihood of whiteheads and blackheads forming. While activated charcoal purifies the skin, the laser is used to remove the top layer of dead skin to uncover a new, smooth layer of skin, which helps to reduce the appearance of scarring.
At some point during their lifetime, around 80% of men will experience hair thinning and balding with 25% beginning to bald in their thirties. Although the issue of hair thinning and balding is widespread, there are minimal proven treatments to resolve the problem. A number of different supplements and vitamins are regularly recommended, however, rarely work as well as most had hoped.
In past years, the only proven solution to hair loss was a hair transplant. A hair transplant is a surgical procedure which involves a strip of skin being removed, transformed into hair grafts and then placed into incisions in the head. Not only does a hair transplant sound rather gory, but it involves major surgery and is not always guaranteed to make a significant impact.
Instead of opting for surgery, many males go for scalp micro-pigmentation. Scalp micro-pigmentation is a cheaper, safer alternative to a hair transplant and involves no surgery. Natural pigments of colour are dotted onto the problem area in different sizes and colour to create the appearance of hair follicles. Colour can be applied to fill in bald patches or areas of thinner hair or over the whole head.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Fantastic news for many, you no longer have to stare at a regretful tattoo you despise or a tattoo that has become faded and is no longer attractive. Laser tattoo removal is a highly effective solution to entirely rid your skin of a tattoo you no longer like, nor want.
A high-intensity hand-held laser is pulsed onto the tattoo you wish to remove. The light will, over time, start to break down the colour pigments, which are then naturally passed through the body. The number of the sessions and the price of your course of laser tattoo removal will depend on many different factors including the size of the tattoo, the type of ink initially used and how heavy-handed the tattoo artist was.
Although many men hate to admit it, the idea of prominent signs of ageing starting to appear worries them just as much as it does so for women. Botox and fillers are both the most common anti-ageing solutions to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but for a more natural alternative, many individuals opt for the GeneO+ facial.
The GeneO+ super facial is used to both exfoliate the skin and encourage the reproduction of collagen. Collagen is a protein within the skin that keeps the skin structured and contoured. With age, the production of collagen breaks down, which is why wrinkles and fine lines appear. The GeneO+ facial uses a combination of exfoliation, heat, light and ultrasound waves first to rejuvenate the skin and then pump essential nutrients back in.
