Irish males used to be a reticent crowd, barely acknowledging that they even washed their faces, and only admitting to use of skincare products under duress.

However, over the last decade the zeitgeist in Ireland has changed, as men now proudly admit to grooming and actively take as much pride in their overall appearance as women.

Self-improvement is always a good thing, and with so many male public figures-footballers, performers and celebrities- happily acknowledging regular visits to their cosmetic doctors, more guys are choosing to look and feel better about themselves.

Improve Your Look

Slievemore Laser and Skincare Clinic have a large male patient group, and offer a range of treatments to improve your looks.

Modern life takes its toll on your face. Late nights, long days at work, or burning the candle at both ends means you may look tired and older than you are. You can easily perk up your appearance with one of the many rejuvenation therapies available.

Lose the Wrinkles

Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers can work wonders on lines and wrinkles; they’re affordable, safe and very effective.

If you have dry horizontal lines across your forehead (think Gordon Ramsey), deep folds between your nose and mouth corners or laugh lines that look more like rock faults, then anti-wrinkle treatments are for you.

Heal Acne Scars

A lot of men suffered from acne as teens, and are left with pock marks and scars as reminders of those hormone-filled days. The pitting is often quite deep, and many men are still embarrassed by the legacy of a childhood skin problem.

Slievemore Clinic has several solutions for acne scarring, including specialised peels and microdermabrasion, as well as prescription- strength products to help heal your face. If you still suffer from the scourge of acne as an adult, Dr. Lisa Fay can help you address it successfully.

Be Smooth

Laser hair removal is hugely popular with men, especially athletes who wish to retain a streamlined body.

The fuzzy Neanderthal look is not very attractive, so men who have a problem with unwanted hair on their back or chest can get rid of it long-term instead of being mortified at a wax salon.

Slievemore Clinic is a doctor-led practice, so you won’t have to shuffle around in a pink robe or listen to people asking you if you’re going anywhere nice on your holidays.

Instead you can look forward to a professional consultation and skilful treatment to address any of your concerns, from wrinkles to back hair; nose correction to spider vein removal.

Call Slievemore Clinic on 01 685 3100 for more information or to book your consultation.
