Facial aging impacts both men and women, and dermal fillers can be used to treat both in the same way. The primary complaint of men is often the appearance of under-eye bags and a hollowing in the upper cheeks. This condition is usually caused by a loss of volume in the mid-facial area that can be treated with a combination of Juvederm®, Voluma® and/or Restylane®.
When seeking a practitioner to administer your filler, you should make sure that they specialize in aesthetic treatments for men. Male aesthetic improvement is a specialty of Brilliance Dermatology and Dr. Hal Weitzbuch. We understand that there are significant physical differences between men and women and focus on choosing the appropriate fillers for men’s specific facial shape and skin type.
Although the treatment plan is similar for both men and women, there is no need for men to be concerned that it will result in a feminine look. The difference lies in the placement of the filler. As skilled specialists, we concentrate the dermal injections on the front of the cheeks, middle of the face, the jawline, and sometimes the temples to soften the negative effects that are caused by the natural aging process.
The filler will be injected into strategic areas of the cheeks and a greater emphasis placed on the jawline and brow area. The end result will be aesthetically pleasing and the male face will have regained its youthful, manly appearance.
Are You a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
Facial aging can be caused by a number of factors including smoking, stress, air pollution, and exposure to UV rays. As we age, our skin also loses the collagen that makes it appear healthy and youthful. All of these factors can combine to make you appear significantly older and chronically tired.
This can negatively impact your self-esteem and reduce your confidence. If you have noticed a loss of facial volume and deep wrinkle lines on your face, you may be a good candidate for the use of dermal filler injections.
What to Expect When Using Dermal Fillers
The fillers work by replacing the collagen that you have lost, plumping up your skin and filling in deep lines and wrinkles. You can expect that the results will last between 6 and 24 months, depending on the type of dermal filler that is selected.
