A complete guide on the causes of skin ageing in men and salon treatments that you can recommend


MAs men move from their 20’s to the 40’s and 50’s, the need for appropriate care for the skin is essential to make the skin look and feel healthy. Nobody can stop the process of ageing but with the right skincare routine and treatments, one can prolong the onset of ageing.
In this article, StyleSpeak brings expert insights on the causes and process of ageing in men and the treatments that can be recommended for them.


Ageing starts as early as from the late 20’s to early 30’s and the first clear signs are fine lines around the eyes. Ageing is often recognized by dullness, wrinkled and sagging skin. It is highly recommended to start the protection and care for the skin at an early stage to delay the process of ageing. The main reasons of ageing includes:

  • Less collagen production
  • UV Radiation/ Sunlight
  • Genetics
  • Hormonal Changes
  • Lifestyle
  • Repeated muscle use – stress, frowning


The early signs of ageing and wrinkles can be combatted with anti-ageing treatments. These treatments work towards delaying the process of ageing and making the skin look youthful, radiant and healthy.
Dr Marisa Goel, the Managing Partner of Serena’s, Founder and CEO of The Skin Inn, says, “Ageing is internal as well as external and lifestyle plays an important role. Smoking, diet,

water and environment are deciding factors. Men show the first signs of ageing around the eyes, neck in the form of fine lines as there are no oil-producing glands in this area. The earlier one starts anti-ageing treatments the less one shows their age.” Each area of the body is different and must be treated as such. Below are the anti-ageing treatments recommended for men.

  • Facials for hydration
  • Mesotherapy – the infusion of products into deeper levels of the skin
  • Ultherapy is the non-invasive skin tightening treatment
  • Radio frequency or microcurrent can be used to make the skin firm
