facial rejuvenation for men
The most popular procedures for men are anti-wrinkle injections for the upper face and the use of fillers in the lower face.
The majority of men are interested in anti-wrinkle injections because of frown lines. Frown lines are two vertical lines between the eyebrows that, when you show expression or concentrate, pull the eyebrows down and inwards. This may make you look angry, concerned or worried.
By relaxing the muscles, the anti-wrinkle injections slightly elevate the eyebrows and help prevent frown and the associated lines. Provided you start early enough, it can make these lines disappear. If the lines have been there too long and you have squeezed collagen out and have an indented scar, we can fill the indented scar with a filler, which flattens the skin and repairs the area.
Men also have anti-wrinkle injections to remove or reduce forehead lines and also ‘crow’s feet’ lines, which are the lines on the side of the eyes. Anti-wrinkle treatments relax those muscles and helps prevent the formation of the lines without changing your natural smile.
Lines and furrows are caused by continual folding and creasing of the skin, which leads to a loss of tissue in the area over time. Dermal fillers are injected into the deepest part of the furrow to replace the loss of tissue and ‘plump up’ the area.
Many men have filler treatment for the lower face to treat ‘nasolabial folds’ or deep furrows from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth on each side. Fillers are also used to treat marionette lines, which are the lines that extend downward from the corners of the mouth and which commonly cause a person to look sad.
