Of course we wish this to more men! Would you also like to know what skin problems in men, the skin therapist offers help for? You can read it here!

Skin problems in men

Men are more sensitive to certain skin problems than women. For example, they may suffer more from ingrown beard hairs and acne or irritations associated with shaving. These problems can cause the skin to look red and irritated, which can lead to insecurity.

The skin therapist can help address these issues, and keep men’s skin healthy. Consider advice on shaving, tips to combat dry skin or a treatment to cleanse the skin if you suffer from acne.

Men’s skin is different from women’s skin

There are a number of differences between men’s skin and women’s skin. Because of the male hormone testosterone, for example, the skin is often thicker. There are more sebaceous glands and the pores are often larger. This causes acne, seborrheic eczema and ingrown hairs, for example. Consequently, the treatment applied is also often slightly different from women’s skin.

There is also a difference between men’s and women’s skin in laser hair removal. This is because male hair growth is more rigid. And the hairs are often deeper. In this situation, the Nd:YAG laser is best suited because it has enough power and gets deep enough for male hair growth.

For what skin problems in men, can the skin therapist help?

For almost all skin problems in men, however, the skin therapist can provide help. Below are some examples, but do not hesitate to contact us if your skin complaint is not listed.

The most common skin problems in men are:

  • Ingrown hairs
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Seborrheic eczema
  • Dry skin
  • Skin irritation
  • Unwanted hair growth
  • Scars

Ingrown hairs

Ingrown hairs are hairs that grow back into the skin, instead of growing outward. This can happen when the hair follicles become clogged or when too many dead skin cells are present around the hair follicles. Ingrown hairs are common in men, especially on the beard and neck areas, but can also occur on other parts of the body.

Ingrown hairs can cause irritation, itching, redness and bumps on the skin. The skin therapist can help you with this through skin care tips, shaving advice, product advice, and treatments such as peels, microneedling and laser hair removal.


Acne and pimples are common skin problem in men, especially during adolescence and early adulthood. It is caused by overactive sebaceous glands and can lead to pimples, blackheads and inflammation on the face, back and chest. The skin therapist specializes in acne treatments and can very well help you when you experience these types of symptoms.


Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness and inflammation of the skin, especially on the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. Men are often more affected by the symptoms than women. For example, the skin may have an increasingly coarse texture, but the skin therapist has several solutions for both coarseness and redness.

Seborrheic eczema

Seborrheic eczema is a common skin condition characterized by red, scaly patches on the skin. It often occurs on the scalp and face and can be somewhat more severe in men than in women. The skin therapist can help with proper skin care recommendations and skin products, and treatments such as peeling, cleansing, microneedling and LED.

Dry skin

Dry skin is common in men, and it comes from a lack of moisture in the skin. It can cause symptoms such as itching, irritation and redness. Regular shaving is then difficult. Sometimes the skin also flakes. Here too, the skin therapist can offer various advice and solutions in the forms of skin treatments specifically for men.

Skin irritation

Sometimes you are not sure how you get your skin irritation. It could be a fungal infection, acne or due to shaving. Eczema, psoriasis and sun allergy are also common. And maybe you are allergic.

Especially when you do not know what is going on, a visit to the skin therapist is wise. When you make an appointment for an intake consultation, the skin therapist will ask specific questions and can determine what is going on through a deep skin analysis. You will then receive personalized advice so you know exactly what you can do to address your skin irritation.

Unwanted hair growth

Many men suffer from unwanted hair on different parts of the body, such as the back, chest and abdomen. They would like to tighten their beard line or remove their genital hair.

Laser hair removal can help reduce unwanted hair growth, leaving the skin looking smoother and cleaner. In addition, laser hair removal can help reduce ingrown hairs, which is often a problem for men who shave regularly.


Scar therapy is also a treatment that can be helpful for men. Many men have scars from acne or other skin conditions, which can lead to insecurity. The skin therapist has several options for treating scars, giving the skin a smoother and more even appearance.

So skin therapy is also for skin problems in men

So, like women, men are also aware of their skin. There is no need to walk around with skin problem for a long time. With the right advice and treatments, the skin therapist can help you achieve healthy and glowing skin so that your overall health and well-being improves as well!

Popular skin treatments in men

Popular treatments for men include: a skin therapy facial, peeling for acne, microneedling for skin improvement, laser hair removal, the tixel or laseMD skin rejuvenation and LED therapy for skin irritations.

Find a skin therapist specializing in men’s skin

When looking for a skin therapist, it is important to ask if she specializes in men’s skin, as they have different needs than women’s skin. In addition, not all skin therapists offer hair removal for men, such as the back, chest and pubic area.

At The Laser Clinic, women and men are welcome, for all types of treatments. We are happy to help you address skin problems and achieve smooth and healthy skin.
