The Harley Medical Group has reported demand from male
patients for laser rejuvenation treatments is up +93% over the last
quarter, across its 30 clinics.
Laser rejuvenation treatments now account for 11% of all non-surgical treatments
carried out during June, July and August at the UK’s largest cosmetic surgery group.
More unusual requests received this year are for skin regeneration treatments on
receding hairlines, including laser treatment and chemical peels to reduce the
appearance of aging sun spots.
Laura Marshall, specialist nurse counsellor at The Harley Medical Group, said: "The
skin on the scalp is delicate and when not protected by hair or high factor sun
cream is prone to burning which can cause dark patches, spots and wrinkles to form.
Coming to terms with a receding hairline has always been a challenge for a man, but
to then suffer the effects of sun damage on the balding area adds insult to injury.
Rejuvenation treatments can help minimise the visible signs of aging skin."
Liz Dale, Director, The Harley Medical Group added: "We’re not talking big numbers
of bald–patch treatments but the fact we’re getting more enquiries does demonstrate
how men are taking non-surgical treatments increasingly seriously as
a cosmetic solution. With successful, high profile men, like Simon Cowell, openly
talking about their cosmetic regimes it’s a subject that has become more acceptable
for men to tackle."
Jonathan Reed, 35, patient at The Harley Medical Group commented: "My hair started
receding when I was in my mid-twenties. Back then I didn’t put much thought into
whether or not I was wearing sun cream and over the last couple of years I’ve
developed a couple of sun spots on my scalp, as well as wrinkles. I’ve booked in
for a consultation to see what my options are as I am really conscious of how aging
the effect is."
Liz Dale concluded: "Before booking in an appointment for any kind of injectable or
laser procedure patients should always check with their practitioner that they are a
registered healthcare professional."
