The Most Popular Aesthetics Treatments For Men
Men as much as women have no intention of letting the signs of time define their appearance. In recent years, we have seen a much higher number of men deciding to undergo treatments to counter this process and reverse any signs of ageing.
Due to our extensive knowledge of anatomy and our years of experience in the field of aesthetics, we at Second Look Aesthetics know exactly which are the best aesthetic treatments for our male clients to address this issue and, above all, how to adapt them to respect their masculinity.
Here we will discuss the four aesthetic treatments for men that which we believe are the most effective in reversing the signs of ageing.
Facial Masculinisation – Most Popular Aesthetics Treatments For Men
As we age, our face shape begins to change as bone, muscle and fat mass decreases, which results in a less contoured and defined face. By using dermal filler to replace lost volume, we can reverse signs of ageing by re-creating a more prominent bone structure.
Male masculinisation treatments have become increasingly popular in recent years, due to the rise in social media and the aesthetics industry generally. This treatment consists of using dermal filler along the jawline, chin and cheeks.
Our aim is to create a wider, stronger and more masculine-shaped face. To do so, we add dermal filler to the jawline to increase definition, for a more chiselled appearance and to create a wider, more square-shaped lower face. Adding dermal filler in this area also assists in lifting the lower face, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Depending on the natural anatomy and shape of our client’s face, we often advise on treating the cheeks in addition to the jawline during a masculinisation treatment. Placing dermal filler along the cheek bone, we create a more masculine-shaped, wider and defined mid-face.
When administering these treatments, we prefer using a cannula instead of a needle, which reduces the risk of bruising and swelling, along with being much a safer option due to the presence of arteries in this area.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections – Best Aesthetics Treatments For Men
Botox for men, nicknamed ‘brotox’ in the media, is one of the more popular aesthetics treatments for men, for those who need to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. The areas most commonly treated are the forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet.
Men typically require a higher dosage of Botox when compared to their female counterparts due to stronger facial muscles. Men’s eyebrows are wider, higher and heavier than women’s; men’s eyebrows are also tilted backwards, whereas women’s are more vertically angled.
Additionally, men usually need not only higher dosages, but also require anti-wrinkle sessions more frequently. The main rule of Botox always holds true regardless of gender: the sooner one starts using Botox, the better the results will be, as fine lines will be prevented from forming or deepening. Should you wait too long to start treatments, you may likely find that your lines are too deep to be treated effectively with Botox and you instead need dermal filler to address the issue.
Tear Trough Filler
This is one of the lesser known aesthetics treatments for men, yet quite effective when done properly. Treatment of the ocular area can offer some men a significantly rejuvenated appearance and alleviate the look of constant ‘tiredness’. Under eye filler is effective in addressing this, by replacing lost volume and filling out any hollows under the eyes, for a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Nasolabial Folds Filler
Nasolabial folds are the lines from the lower corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth. They become particularly prominent as we age and make the face look older. These lines are caused by the daily dynamic movement when we talk, smile and laugh. Dermal filler can be used in this area to lift and treat these creases. Treating this area will leave you with a smoother and younger appearance, with less demarcation between the cheeks and lower face.
