05 Jul Are dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections just for women?
There is this tendency to associate cosmetic treatments and surgeries with women alone. The truth is, that men are just as likely as women are to seek out minor cosmetic solutions for some of the concerns that bother them.
Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections can produce almost immediate results. Results last just a few months, but allow gentlemen to feel confident about their appearance.
Dermal fillers for men
Dermal filler injections can turn back the signs of aging while also adding a more youthful look. While facelift surgery can give you dramatic results, dermal fillers can give you very similar results without the trauma of surgery and the downtime associated with it.
Dermal fillers work very well on their own, but they may be combined with anti-wrinkle injections to get the best results.
Anti-wrinkle injections for men
Anti-wrinkle injections are injected directly into the facial muscles that are responsible for those animated expressions we make when we laugh, smile or frown. Over time, the muscles create stress on the skin, resulting in deep set wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injections temporarily freeze the muscles, which gives the skin a break and reduces the appearance of expression lines.
Are cosmetic injections different for men?
The ageing process impacts men and women in different ways. Men also tend to have cosmetic goals that differ from their female counterparts. The most frequent sign of ageing in men tends to be deep creases in the forehead and the development of jowls seen around the jawline. Dermal fillers may be used to create jawline definition and fill out wrinkles, whilst keeping the shape of the face masculine.
It is important to work with a cosmetic professional who has experience working with male patients.
Are there any risks for dermal fillers or other cosmetic injections?
As with any type of cosmetic or medical procedure, there are very minor risks associated. Most patients will experience a bit of bleeding at the site of the injections, but it will pass very quickly. Some bruising and tenderness could be expected, but this will also ease up within a very short period.
There is no downtime or extensive recovery needed from these non-invasive cosmetic treatments. Most can resume their daily activities right away from the procedure.
How long do the results last?
The fact that dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections are not permanent tends to be one of the points that makes these treatments so appealing. Men will be able to try out the cosmetic treatments and see how they feel about the changes to their face.
Perhaps they’ve had dermal fillers injected into their nose for a liquid rhinoplasty?
Perhaps they’ve had a plump youthfulness restored to their lips?
These treatments can produce dramatic results, but they are not permanent. They can also be readily reversed if he doesn’t like them.
Results for both the fillers and anti-wrinkle injections will last between three and six months. First treatments will not last very long. However, subsequent treatments will tend to last a bit longer each and every time.
Seeing cosmetic improvement is much more involved than simply treating the skin or the injection of a dermal filler. Staying hydrated, protecting the face from the sun and also developing a good skincare routine will all go a long way towards ensuring your face looks vibrant and fresh for many great years to come.
