Father’s Day is just around the corner, and if your father isn’t interested in toolsets or ties, he might enjoy some cosmetic treatments. If you need help finding your father or husband the perfect treatment, look no further!
If you’re planning your father’s first real skincare adventure, you might want to start simple. A facial might be just what he needs to relax and feel true rejuvenation. Facials are not only good for your skin, they’re also incredibly relaxing for many people. If you’ve had a facial, you get it—and why not share it with dad? A lot of men might not do much in the way of skincare, but they really should. Get dad into skincare with this simple process. Facials work to cleanse the skin of oils, help it maintain moisture, and reduce wrinkles. There are more complicated facials that target certain skincare needs like acne, aging and fine lines or dryness. A mini facial takes even less time, but still delivers all the good stuff and gets dad through his first experience quickly.
A chemical peel is like a hardcore facial. If your father is interested in more noticeable results, sign him up for one as soon as possible! They are superficial procedures, but target skin deeper than a facial would. Chemical peels every 6-8 weeks can maintain your skin, keeping it healthy and glowing. If you can get your father hooked early, he’ll be on an excellent path toward healthy skin. Chemical peels treat signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, some types of acne, scarring and irregular pigmentation of the skin. Most commonly, the chemicals used in chemical peels are acids. For first timers, or for general skin health, salicylic and glycolic acids are the most common compounds used. In higher concentrations, these acids and others are used to treat sunspots and actinic keratoses. As the name suggests, once a chemical peel is performed, skin will often look like it’s sunburned and dead skin often peels or flakes off. This lasts about a week to two weeks following the process, but the results are worth the wait!
If your father or husband is interested in restoring their skin to a more youthful state, then you might want to suggest he tries Botox or dermal fillers. Botox is an injection that uses a protein found in the clostridium botulinum bacteria to temporarily block nerve impulses in certain facial muscles. By doing this, Botox works to prevent and ease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, the most prevalent signs of aging. Side effects from Botox are uncommon, and the effects of the injection last four to six months.
Dermal fillers, typically hyaluronic acid fillers, are another common injectable that target wrinkles and other signs of aging. These injections use hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin to encourage healthy skin growth. While a single treatment might not fully address facial wrinkles, dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvederm can give you long-lasting results and ease the appearance of fine lines.
