Thanks to the Mens Facial Trends Brand Sponsors who made it possible for us to bring this industry information to the L+A Community.

Medical + Spa Mens Facial Procedure Trends

L+A travels the globe attending medical + spa skin care events to ensure that we are able to report the latest news. In 2024 L+A was in Paris at IMCAS, Miami at AMWC, New York at IECSC, Las Vegas at the Medical Spa Show by AmSpa, and in Toronto at ESI. One trend that is emerging is the explosive growth in the men’s facial procedure sector of the medical + spa skin care industry. 

Injectables + Non-Surgical Men’s Facial Treatments

The number one area of growth will be in men’s facial injectables. L+A reached out to a global innovator in men’s facial injectables, Dr. Vincent Wong from London to gain insight into his experience with the trends in men’s facial injectables. Brend Cumming, Co-Founder of Lira Clinical is a Registered Nurse and MediSpa owner, she shares her experience with the trends in men’s procedures. 

There’s an increased focus on non-surgical men’s facial procedures. One of the most popular treatments for men is a chemical peel. These treatments are growing exponentially.  However, finding the right chemical peel is crucial. L+A found chemical peels ideal for men and a chemical peel certification class that can help newer medical + spa skin care professionals gain valuable education in this growing area. 

Not every man who comes for a procedure is interested in an aggressive treatment. Another great find was a universal men’s facial treatment that can be performed on men of all ages. Additionally, we discovered a non-surgical facelift treatment that can be added to your medical + spa skin care treatment menu for men who want to boost firmness. 

Devices for Men’s Facial Treatments 

Devices are a huge part of the growth of the men’s facial procedure sector. L+A works with some of the top device manufacturers. One, in particular, offers devices for men’s facial + scalp treatment. There’s also a device manufacturer who offers a tool to boost infusion of products into the skin. Finally, you can give your male clients’ skin a breath of fresh air with this oxygen infusion device

Men’s Facial + Body Hair Removal

In addition to men’s facial procedures – many men are also looking for hair removal options. L+A works with a prominent company that offers a men’s facial + body waxing collection that can help medical + spa skin care professionals provide men’s grooming services.

Men’s Facial Injectable Trends

Dr. Vincent Wong on Men’s Facial Injectables 

L+A met Dr. Vincent Wong at IMCAS in Paris, he’s a global leader in medical aesthetics.

“It’s interesting to hear about the growing interest of men in the injectable market. In terms of corrections that men are often opting for, I’ve seen that many are seeking treatments for anti-aging, such as wrinkle reduction. Some also opt for procedures like chin augmentation or jawline enhancement for a more masculine look. Treatments to improve skin health and skin quality (such as peels, lasers, exosomes, and medical-grade skincare) are also very popular. 

Repeat business from men in this area is not uncommon. Once they see the positive results from these treatments, they often return for touch-ups or additional procedures. To attract more men to our practice, we focus on providing a comfortable and welcoming environment for all clients, including using gender-neutral colours in clinic and marketing/promotional material. We also highlight our expertise in catering to the specific concerns and goals of male patients (I treat a lot of patients within the LGBTQIA+ community and one of my areas of expertise is facial masculinization. Additionally, we use targeted marketing strategies to reach out to this demographic effectively.” Dr. Vincent Wong

Brenda Cumming, RN, MEP-C, Co-Founder Lira Clinical 

L+A Sponsor Lira Clinical’s Co-Founder Brenda Cumming, RN, MEP-C runs a thriving medical spa. She has provided men’s facial procedures and gave L+A some great insight into what’s happening in the market. 

“In my practice, I am seeing more and more straight men coming in looking for correction. Men are looking to have a more youthful appearance. They’re finding themselves newly single and entering the dating pool. Many men are looking for jobs in their 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s and competing with men 20 years younger than them.  Many of these guys were forced to actually look at their faces during the pandemic on Zoom meetings and were not really happy with what they saw.

Men coming to my practice are pointing out their under eyes, their sagging cheeks and their descending nasal-labial folds, skin laxity along the jaw line, and submental fat under the chin.

I find out what aspects really bothers them, and then create a treatment plan. We keep it simple and start with skin care at home! For mid-face volume loss, I love Voluma®. For jawline tightening I love using Vollure®. For under eyes, you can address the texture with Radiofrequency and mild peels.  You can also use dermal filler, such as Volbella® to mitigate the light hitting the periorbital rim. 

I love liquid PDO Threads to tighten and brighten the under-eye area, but I also use the PDO Threads all over the face!”  Brenda Cumming, RN, MEP-C, Co-Founder Lira Clinical 

With over 30 years of experience in clinical and management roles in Critical Care, Trauma, Post Anesthesia, Urgent Care, and Family Practice, Brenda’s science-based knowledge of health and wellness provides Lira Clinical with an in-depth understanding of the professional skincare industry.

Chemical Peels For Men’s Facials by M.A.D Skincare

One of the most common requests for a non-invasive treatment in a medical / spa skin care practice is a chemical peel. The term is synonymous with fighting the signs of premature aging. Yet, most men have no idea what type of peel they need. We reached out to our sponsor M.A.D skincare and asked for suggestions for chemical peels that can be a back bar go-to for men.  

“We suggest our Multi C / Retinol Peel or Advanced Acne Peel.  These will help with breakouts and ingrown hairs due to shaving. It will also help the skin’s moisture levels and deliver brighter skin. These peels also target sun damage, age spots, and uneven skin tone. This combination will decongest the skin, and reduce blemishes and blackheads.” Michael Contorno, President, M.A.D Skincare.

The Multi C / Retinol Peel is generally considered a medium-level peel containing (Multi Fruit Acid, Lactic, and Glycolic Acids), suitable for most skin types particularly mature dry, and sun-damaged skin. The depth of this peel is determined by the number of layers applied during application and the tolerance level of the skin it is applied to. It is recommended that new users begin with 1-3 layers for a light/medium peel. Generally, 4-6 layers will result in a medium/deep peel and 7-8 layers can result in a deep peel.

The Advanced Acne Peel has a higher concentration of acids to deal with stubborn acne conditions. A combination of Azelaic, Glycolic, and Salicylic Acids, powerfully exfoliates, decongests, and reduces blemishes, blackheads, and pimple formation. It’s ideal for oily/combination skin, breakout-prone skin and/or irritated and inflamed skin due to acne. 

M.A.D Skincare also has the full collection of MediPeels for Medical + Spa Skin Care professionals to use in order to meet the specific needs of all their male clients’ skin.
