Male Skin Conditions: Treatments in New York
Written by Dr. Bradley Glodny.
Treating problematic male skin conditions in NYC requires a structured approach to skincare. Gendler Dermatology, a specialized medical and cosmetic dermatology clinic, offers a comprehensive range of non-surgical skin treatments on New York’s Upper East Side. Similar to women’s skincare, male skin conditions require a tailored approach that only skilled practitioners can deliver effectively.
Dr. Bradley Glodny is one of our highly experienced, board-certified dermatologists. A native New Yorker, he received his MD at SUNY Upstate Medical School, and did his dermatology training at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in NYC. Dr. Glodny is a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery.
An instructor in Cosmetic Dermatology at Columbia University Medical Center, Dr. Glodny has been published in peer-reviewed journals and is focused on providing comprehensive skincare treatments to his patients. His areas of expertise include acne, skin cancer, inflammatory skin conditions, cosmetic dermatology treatments, and laser/light therapies.
Other than the obvious facial hair differences, more subtle structural differences exist between men’s and women’s skin. The male hormone testosterone accounts for a man’s skin being about 25% thicker and tougher than a woman’s, and about that much oilier, too.
Increased testosterone can result in scars that take longer to heal, which is a problem for individuals with acne, a common problem in men. Furthermore, because men tend to sweat more than women, some skin conditions such as eczema and contact dermatitis may be more intense, with symptoms such as itching or burning in areas where sweat accumulates.
