TREATMENTS FOR MEN
Over the last decade grooming for men has become ever more important. Men are discovering the metro-sexual lifestyle and the benefits that come with male grooming and taking care of their appearance. We aim to "normalise" men looking after their appearance and well-being, without being made to feel embarrassed or judged for getting a few tweakments!
Secret Looks is a private clinic, where our male clients feel comfortable and relaxed without the worry of entering a female dominated salon. We have a number of treatments that men regularly visit the clinic for including:
Hair Loss Treatment - Jawline Contouring - Anti-Wrinkle Treatments
Platelet Rich Plasma for Hair Loss
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a proven hair loss treatment that can regenerate and promote hair growth for men and women by using your own plasma and growth factors to target areas of hair loss.
We use PRP to encourage the growth of thinning hair and promote the growth of hair. Hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from the blood supply. PRP injections work by introducing platelets so by administering PRP in the area of damaged hair follicles healthy hair growth will be promoted.
A minimum of 6 sessions are usually advised 4 weeks apart for optimal results.
Hyperhidrosis (Excess Sweating)
Botulinum toxin has become a widely recognised treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating), gaining the FDA's stamp of approval in 2004. To treat severe underarm sweating, botulinum toxin works by blocking the secretion of the chemical that activates sweat glands.
How long does botulinum toxin for hyperhidrosis last?
Every body breaks down botulinum toxin differently so the duration of the results will vary. Typically, you will experience dry armpits for around 3 to 6 months after receiving botulinum toxin injections. However, exercise and stress can accelerate the body's metabolic response, so the results fade faster.
The treatment removes excess skin, lifting and tightening many areas across the face and body.
A common plasma treatment for men is Blepharoplasty – a non surgical treatment for lifting the eyelids, eyebrows, and removing under eye excess skin. When your eyes show signs of aging; excess skin, bags or wrinkles, the perception is that of being tired or old. The treatment opens the eye area, improving vision, increases confidence and provides a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Eyelid rejuvenation therefore is one of the most common procedures to improve the appearance of the face.
Plasma therapy is a non surgical, non invasive procedure with surgical results! The aim of the procedure is to achieve a refreshed, rejuvenated, natural appearance.
Tattoo removal is a very common treatment with tattoo’s becoming increasingly popular over the past few years. If like many people you have come to regret having that design on your body, Secret Looks specialist Sam will carefully assess the colour and size of your tattoo, advising how many sessions you are likely to need to enjoy the fantastic results of NPM removal. Unwanted tattoos can be removed gradually over a series of sessions, or partially removed in preparation for a cover up tattoo.
The procedure involves a lactic acid/vitamin c solution being implanted into the skin using a needle, similar to the implantation of a tattoo. The solution breaks down the tattoo ink/pigment into tiny fragments, which are eventually absorbed into the bloodstream, and safely passed out of the body. Vitamin C contained in the solution lightens the ink/pigment/skin aiding a quicker removal of your tattoo.
Semi Permanent Makeup
Noticeably more and more men are coming to see me for micro-pigmentation procedures – A lot of men can be off put by the sound of permanent cosmetics, as they believe it will look too feminine. I assure you, it won’t. I can give the appearance of fuller lashes and more intensity around the eyes and create fuller brows due to hair loss, scaring or simply thinning.
