Hey guys, here’s a topic that probably won’t be discussed at your next poker game or tailgating party: men and dermal fillers. Cosmetic improvement has often been associated with women, but now more than ever, men are discovering that they can benefit from nonsurgical treatments like dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®.
Average Joe… Looking Good
In my San Francisco practice, I’ve treated more than the average number of male patients. The Bay Area has always been known for its socially progressive nature, and the men here have always been aesthetically conscious “metrosexual” guys; however, lately I’ve noticed an upswing in the number of “average Joes” interested in maintaining or improving their appearance nonsurgically with injectable treatments.
In fact, several of my male patients are the husbands of my female patients. They will come in and tell me, “I’ve noticed the positive changes your dermal fillers have made in my wife. I’m interested in getting some!”
Many of these male patients today are coming in for full facial treatments.
Many of these male patients today are coming in for full facial treatments, what we refer to as Illumination 360, the Pathway to Your Perfect Face with fillers. With this process, I look closely at a man’s face from all angles, examining everything from brow to chin in both direct light and indirect light, while searching for 6 key ways to improve his appearance.
This patient’s main goal was to treat under-eye bags. After examination, I encouraged him to receive treatment in other areas for a full-facial rejuvenation over the course of a few visits. Read more about his treatment.
Correct to Diminish Imperfections
First, I examine 3 main areas of the face for sagging skin: under the eyes, the midface region, and along the jawline. We treat these areas with fillers, so you look more youthful, fresh, and alert. Sometimes men have bigger bags under their eyes than women, so their results may look even more dramatic!
Define to Chisel Your Features
Next, I assess the 3 defining points of the face for opportunities to sharpen their edge and improve attractiveness: cheekbones, chin, and nose. (A distinct, well-proportioned chin has a huge impact on the face, after all.)
So guess what? The guys are really digging it! Sometimes their results even surprise their wives. This rings especially true for men in their 50s and 60s who are used to appearing more aged. When they see their face without the under-eye bags and sagging jowls, they are more than surprised.
Bottom line: You’ll look more fresh, awake, chiseled, and ready to take on the day. You can go from the “average Joe” to the “rockstar” version of you! Best of all: There is little to no downtime, so you can keep your busy schedule. You can see some of these results in my patients’ before-and-after photos, like the ones I’ve shared below.
If you’re interested in seeing how nonsurgical dermal fillers can make a positive change for your facial structure (and your life), schedule a consultation with me in person or via Skype.
