Anti-Wrinkle Injections for Men in Melbourne

The Australian sun is harsh.

In addition to being a skin cancer risk, excess sun causes a lot of aesthetic damage to the skin.

Many men have had significant exposure to the Australian sun by the age of 25 or 30.  By the time they’re in their late 30’s, they may end up with crow’s feet, forehead lines, and deep crevices along their jaws or brow areas.

Fortunately, injectable treatments using muscle-relaxants and skin volumisers can reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles, crow’s feet and facial lines.

Other men have a bumpy nose or facial scars they want treated with dermal filler injections.

Alternatively, a Rhinoplasty surgery can get you a straighter nose or a nose size that is better matched to your other facial features in terms of size, shape or nasal bridge.

Enzyme Peels and Chemical Peels for Your Skin

There are many different types of facial peels that help rejuvenate and smooth your skin.

How a skin peel works is typically as follows:

  1. You’ll get a customised facial assessment including VECTRA Reveal high-tech photographs to demonstrate the level of sun damage or pigmentation issues
  2. A Treatment Plan will be formulated and scheduled (a few types might be able to be performed on the same day of your consultation but some require preparation)
  3. If pre-peel preparation is needed, this often involves avoiding using active skin care products and avoiding sun exposure before and after your peel (for weeks or sometimes months depending on the type and depth of the skin peel).
  4. On the day of your skin peel, you will be asked to relax in a reclining chair and the procedure will be described step-by-step as it is performed.
  5. Any redness can usually be covered up by natural-looking tinted sun block.
  6. You’ll be given specific post-peel care instructions for your skin to get the best results

Hyper-pigmentation Treatments and Skin Cancer Removals

Along with wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation issues and skin cancers are common problems for men who have been exposed to the Australian sun.

Hyper-pigmentation usually occurs on the face, hands, arms and upper body, but it can also leave you with sun spots and ‘ageing spots’ on many areas of the body.

Skin Cancers can form anywhere on the face or body, and are quite common on the face, chest, back and legs.  You’ll want to get regular monitoring of any lesions, moles and sun spots to be sure they are benign.

There are numerous types of skin lesions, moles and skin cancers that may need surgical excision by a Plastic Surgeon.

Excessive Sweating (Hyperhydrosis) Injectables Treatments

Sweating excessively is known s Hyperhydrosis, and it affects both men and women. When you have hyperhydrosis (excess sweating), it can sometimes be an embarrassing problem that limits the clothing you wear. It can also impede your confidence in interviews and social events as well as in relation to intimate relationships.

More men are seeking treatment for hyperhydrosis by visiting our leading Injectables Clinicians at our Coco Ruby Skin & Anti-Ageing Clinics.

Our Clinicians can make a HUGE difference in how much you sweat on a daily basis. They reduce sweating for up to 9 to 12 months – using injectables treatments (micro-fine injections that you’ll hardly feel) that can significantly reduce sweating from your under arm areas, face, chest, hands (palms) and back.  Some areas are more sensitive than others, but numbing cream and super-fine micro-needles can really help keep you comfortable – and you’ll really appreciate staying dryer under your arms or on your back, face, chest and hands.
