We’ve written before about the rise of “Brotox,” that is, the increasing number of men deciding to improve their appearance with safe, effective, and minimally invasive Botox injections. A 2015 study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons revealed that the number of men getting Botox treatments skyrocketed 337 percent since 2000.
But Botox is not the only way that men can rejuvenate their skin, minimize facial imperfections, and alter the shape, texture, and volume of their facial features. More and more guys are availing themselves of the unquestionable benefits of dermal fillers. These tested and proven treatments have improved the appearance and confidence of women for years, and now men are discovering how dermal fillers can do the same for them.
What Are Dermal Fillers for Men and How Do They Work on Men?
There are many kinds of FDA-approved dermal fillers appropriate and effective for men and women alike. These safe injectable treatments composed of three main types of substances:
- Hyaluronic Acid (HA): Fillers composed of this substance that our bodies produce naturally include Juvéderm Voluma, Juvéderm Volbella, Restylane®, Restylane® Silk, and Restylane® Defyne
- Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA): Fillers using this natural substance include Radiesse®
- Poly-L-lactic Acid: Sculptra Aesthetic® injectable fillers use this biocompatible and biodegradable synthetic substance
Dermal fillers attract water to the injection site and jumpstart collagen production at and around the treatment area. Along with a similar protein called elastin, collagen is the substance that gives our skin a healthy texture and shape. Increasing the quantity of collagen in your skin will improve its volume and texture. In combination with the dermal filler itself, this boost in collagen production increases the volume of the area under the skin, stretching it and thereby reducing and fading wrinkles.
What Can Dermal Fillers Do For Men?
Men and women have different features, different characteristics that define youth and attractiveness, and different areas where they tend to focus their dermal filler treatments.
Men can use dermal fillers to add volume, reduce lines and wrinkles, and improve several aspects of their facial features, including:
- The Temples
- The Infraorbital area (Under-eyes)
- The Cheeks
- The Jawline
