Looking the part

By Jorge_Granda

Like it or not, people judge you based on how you look. This applies for women and men alike at work and in our personal lives. While guys might not like to admit it, men that take care of themselves and look sharp tend to make a better impression than those who don’t.

Having a nice wardrobe, eating healthy and exercising regularly helps a lot to look and feel good. However, there are also other ways that can help guys look like a million bucks that until recently where methods that only women embraced. But society has drastically changed.

It is also important to us to look young, healthy and attractive. Taking care of yourself shows that a certain level of commitment and discipline is part of your character and personality. These traits can set you on the way to lead a successful life.

The world conspires to help women look great, but what about the men? We also deserve to look our best.

Dermatological treatments fit that description to help men who are seeing signs of aging they would like to correct. So why not give it a try? I am still young, but prevention is just as important, so I embarked on a quest to find some answers here in Doha.

That’s how I came across Silkor Laser & Aesthetic Center. Located inside Lagoona Mall in West Bay, the center offers great treatments for women, but also for men.

Upon entering Silkor one can tell it is not a spa. You are not there to go through some holistic experience that will leave you feeling relax and pampered. Here is more about results. Though the attention is terrific and very professional and the décor is impeccable, at Silkor you can’t expect to be served tea in a relaxing area with dimmed lights and background music. That’s when you know you are in for a more professional treatment rather than an experience.

After a consultation with the aesthetician you can select from a great variety of treatments, which one is the most convenient for you.

For my first treatment, I decided to go for the Hydrafacial MD. The Hydrafacial is an invigorating treatment that takes around 30 mins. It is designed to deliver long-term skin health for any type of skin.

The treatment is like a deep hydration. After cleansing your face to uncover a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation, the therapists use some sort of a tiny vacuum to remove debris from pores with painless suction delivering antioxidants to your skin. This procedure is not painful or unpleasant and it lasts for around 10 to 15 minutes.

The therapist then proceeds to nourish the skin with intense moisturizers. The treatment is soothing, refreshing and non-irritating. The results are remarkable and one can see the immediate effect. It’s a good treatment to remove fine lines and wrinkles, help with elasticity and firmness, skin tone and evenness and skin texture among other benefits.

One treatment won’t sort out all your skin issues, but one already helps a lot. However, it is recommended to have a few treatments throughout a certain period. That is something only the aesthetician can advise you on.

After one treatment, I walked out seeing a visible skin refinement and glow. It’s the perfect treatment to start taking care of the aging signs that may be bothering you.
