Do dermal fillers work for men?
The best dermal filler treatments for men
In recent years, the world of aesthetic enhancements has seen a significant shift in perspective, with an increasing number of men seeking procedures to enhance their appearance and boost their confidence. Dermal fillers, once primarily associated with women, have gained popularity among men as well. These minimally invasive treatments offer a way to address signs of aging and achieve subtle refinements, without the need for surgery. In this blog, we’ll explore how dermal fillers work, their benefits for men, and the common areas that men choose to have treated.
Understanding dermal fillers
Dermal fillers are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that involve injecting a gel-like substance into specific areas of the face to restore volume, soften wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. The most commonly used fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural compound found in the body that aids in maintaining skin hydration and volume. The filler material integrates with the skin’s natural structures, creating a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance.
Why dermal fillers appeal to men
Men are increasingly embracing dermal fillers for several reasons:
- Subtle Enhancements: Dermal fillers offer a way to achieve natural-looking results. Men often prefer subtler changes that maintain their masculine features while reducing the common signs of ageing.
- Minimally Invasive: Unlike surgical procedures, dermal filler treatments are minimally invasive and require little to no downtime. This aspect appeals to men who want to improve their appearance without a significant interruption to their daily lives.
- Quick Procedures: Dermal filler injections are usually quick procedures that can be performed during a lunch break, making them convenient for busy people.
- Boosting Confidence: A refreshed appearance can lead to increased self-confidence, both personally and professionally.
The top treatment areas for men
Chin and jawline
A masculine face is often characterised by a strong, chiselled jawline and chin. Fillers enhance a man’s natural bone structure when placed in strategic places like the side of the jaw and chin. This gives men a much more structured and streamlined look. By injecting dermal fillers into the angle of the jaw, the jawline will project laterally to create strongly structured lines. The lateral borders of the chin can also be injected to square off the jawline for that ultimate chiselled look.
Midface and under eyes
Injectables are still (and will continue to be) the most popular treatments with men, in particular, very subtle Botox injections to lift eyelids and reduce frown lines, as well as gentle mid-face and tear trough revolumisation with fillers. The eyes are a key area for men when it comes to ageing – so this is usually the primary issue people present with when they come into clinic for the first time. Through precise micro-injections of hyaluronic acid fillers, volume is added along with boosting skin hydration. This treatment is effective with proven results when treating sunken or hollow areas under the eye.
Many men are deeply unhappy with the profile of their noses. It may appear too large, too small, too wide or narrow, lopsided or with a noticeable ‘hump’ or ‘hook’ shape. We also see patients whose noses have been broken in the past and are left crooked and misaligned.
A nose which isn’t in balance with the rest of the face can be very noticeable and many of our patients have suffered lack of self-esteem due to the way they feel about their nose. Careful addition of volume allows the injector to sculpt a straighter, more even nose which is in harmony and balance with the rest of the face. We can smooth out dips and depressions for a straighter profile, adjust the angle of the tip, reduce bumps, and make wide nostrils appear smaller.
