Fill Me In On Men’s Filler!

Today women aren’t the only ones who want to look their best as they age. A prominent jawline, more definition around the lips and, and improving the appearance of under-eye bags are some of the many enhancements men are drawn to just as much as their female counterparts.

The “Plumping” Effect

One of the many effective treatment options for this is dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring component in the body’s connective tissues. Once these fillers are injected into the desired treatment area, they “plump” up those facial areas which may have lost some of their elasticity because of the naturally occurring aging process. “As a result of the aging process and exposure to the sun throughout our lifetime, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity, or sagginess, can develop in these areas,” explains Gilbert Saenz III, physician assistant at Sanova Dermatology in Austin, Texas. Dermal fillers in turn help restore and rejuvenate these areas, resulting in a more refreshed and natural appearance.

Common Treatment Areas for Men

Certain areas of the face are treated regularly by men in an effort to slow down the aging process and create a more aesthetically appealing appearance. Some of the common treatment areas include

Temple – Dermal filler in the temple can address volume loss commonly seen as we mature in age, and help create a more prominent, confident facial structure.

Infraorbital area (Under-eyes) – Injectable fillers in this area help improve skin laxity (sagging) and can help minimize the dark appearance of the eyes commonly associated with “lack of sleep” or tiredness. Instantly restoring a more youthful appearance.

Cheeks – Cheek augmentation can also be achieved with dermal fillers and is an excellent method of maintaining a uniform appearance throughout the face. The filler helps “fill in” areas of volume loss or flattening and enhance the facial contours naturally.

Jawline – A strong, well-defined jawline is one of the most prominent features of masculinity. For those men with a softer, rounder jaw, this can easily be achieved with dermal fillers.

There are other facial areas and features that can benefit from dermal fillers as well; such as the chin, corners of the mouth, and some wrinkles above the nose. “This results in a more prominent appearance around the mouth and lower face, greater definition of the facial contours, and fewer lines and wrinkles in the treated areas,” says Saenz.

In today’s business and social environment, women are not the only ones who want to preserve their youth and enhance their overall aesthetic appearance. More and more men are in search of that ever elusive fountain of youth, and turning to their board certified aesthetic providers for their expertise and help. These men want to appear more youthful, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and overall signs of aging; all while maintaining their masculinity.
