The usual narrative is that only women primp and preen – that the fairer of the sex is more inclined to worry about appearance. But that really isn’t true – in fact, in a recent Men’s Health survey, 32% of men – 45% of them are aged 18 to 34 – have edited or cropped a photo to make themselves look better online. But worst of all – 1 in 20 men have been teased, trolled, or body-shamed on social media about their appearance or weight.
While you shouldn’t be trying to improve your appearance for anyone else but yourself, the fact is there are medical solutions to improve your grooming and appearance.
Let’s start with gynecomastia. Pronounced guy-neh-co-mastia, the Greek word means ‘woman’s breasts’. In today’s vernacular, we call them ‘man boobs’, and the term is used to describe the occurrence of enlarged breast tissues in men. It’s not just an aesthetic problem – it’s a medical condition.
Worst of all – it’s not something you can dispel with just exercise, as most of the time the trouble is enlarged glandular tissue which no amount of exercise or healthy eating can reverse.
What’s the treatment? At Amaris. B Clinic, you can go for a consultation with Dr. Ivan Puah, who has more than 14 years of clinical practice in body sculpting and is MOH accredited to perform liposuction in Singapore. He will evaluate your clinical condition and propose an appropropriate treatment plan for you – which may involve gynecomastia surgery with nipple reduction and skin tightening. For most, gynecomastia surgery typically involves a combination of breast gland and fat removal in order to achieve a natural, lean and masculine looking chest.
Now what of your face? In the case of acne, some of the main catalysts are inherent – and they could be down to your skin type, which you inherit via your DNA, and the root of your breakouts could be down to having either sensitive, oily, dry or acne-prone skin. The problem – they aren’t just confined to your adolescent moments – is that these factors don’t change with age.
And when the skin pores are engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria, the pores swell causing your skin follicle wall to break. While your skin will heal itself, it never looks as smooth as the original skin, which is where your acne scars ensue.
The solution? PICO Acne Scars Laser with PICOCARE reduces acne scars faster and more efficiently than traditional fractional lasers. You can expect a shorter recovery time, as it delivers energy in shorter bursts to remodel your skin and improve its texture.
Now, laser treatments can only be performed by a qualified and certified doctor. For your skin and body concerns, head down to Amaris B. Clinic for a consultation now!
