Hey guys, here’s a topic that probably won’t be discussed at your next poker game or tailgate party: injectables like facial fillers for men. Cosmetic improvement has often been associated with women, but now more than ever, men are discovering that they can benefit from non surgical treatments, namely neuromodulators, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, and dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®.
At our San Francisco Bay Area practice, about 35% of our patients are men. Most want to refine their natural looks or combat signs of aging to stay looking youthful and fit. Injectables are the newest addition to guys’ physical upkeep routine: think gym, grooming, and JUVÉDERM.
What Are the Best Injectable Treatments for Men?
The possibilities are just about endless when it comes to injectables for men. Here are 4 of our favorite and most transformative treatments that we think are worth a try.
Chin and Jawline Contouring
The chin and jawline are stars of the show when it comes to male facial contouring. It’s all about sculpting a more defined, masculine-looking lower face. To do this, we use durable jawline fillers to add definition, volume, and structure to the chin and jaw.
Under Eye/Midface Rejuvenation
As we age, gravity takes its toll and we lose bone, fat, and skin elasticity, leaving us with flat or falling features. Under eye/midface rejuvenation restores volume in the cheeks and under-eyes, erasing bags, dark circles, and nasolabial folds, and giving your entire look a lift. See for yourself!
Non Surgical Rhinoplasty (NSR)
Small changes can make a big difference when it comes to the nose. A non surgical nose job has the power to transform your nose, but it’s also ideal for creating subtle improvements that make a surprising difference. Fillers are fantastic for adding projection and definition to the tip, disguising nasal humps, creating a straighter or narrower bridge—we can even make your nose look smaller with filler!
Upper Face BOTOX
The upper face is a focal point, and signs of aging like frowning wrinkles, crow’s feet, and forehead furrows are front and center when you’re interacting with people at work or in your personal life. Neuromodulators like BOTOX can help you look younger and feel more confident by erasing lines and wrinkles in this area.
FAQs About BOTOX & Dermal Fillers for Men
Are dermal fillers and BOTOX safe?
All neuromodulators and fillers used at MFI are FDA-approved and have proven safety records. In the rare case that you experience a complication from fillers, we can dissolve hyaluronic acid-based fillers at any time with a quick injection of a product called Hylenex.
How long do bruising and swelling last after filler injections?
MFI Injectors use blunt-tip microcannulas to inject dermal filler in order to minimize trauma to the tissues and reduce the risk of bruising. However, bruising is still possible and typically takes 1-2 weeks to resolve. Swelling after treatment is minimal and typically improves within a few weeks. You may notice some minor, residual swelling lasting up to 4 weeks. Find out how to get ahead of this with our recovery tips.
How much time will I need to take away from work?
With BOTOX or filler injections, you can head back to work right away. You may have some redness around your injection sites, but that typically clears up within a day or so.
How long do dermal filler and BOTOX results last?
Fillers last between 6 and 18 months, depending on the formulation and where they are injected. Most people opt for touch-ups between 9 and 12 months. We’ll help you plan your maintenance treatments so your look never lapses. You might also want to check out this blog post about the longevity of results. Neuromodulators typically last 3 to 4 months, at which point you should come in for a refresh.

Both our Under Eye/Midface package and our Chin & Jaw Contouring package cost between $4,200 and $5,300 and include up to 4 syringes of filler. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty costs $3,300, and our BOTOX for Forehead & Brow package costs $720 to $820.
