More men than ever are choosing to get Botox and dermal fillers to preserve and maintain a youthful appearance. There are differences in the treatment of men and women when it comes to cosmetic procedures. For men, it is important to avoid feminizing the face.
Botox for Men
Men often get the forehead and glabella treated, and somewhat less often the crow’s feet area. When injecting men with Botox more units are generally required as compared to women due to the greater muscle mass present in men. Injection to the brow should be kept relatively flat and care should be taken to avoid creating an arched brow, which is usually perceived as feminine.
Men often have heavier brows as compared to women and it important to avoid injections too low on the brow, which can result in forehead ptosis (droop).
Overall, men can benefit from Botox injections by reducing wrinkles on the upper face and periorbital region.
Dermal Fillers For Men
Men can benefit from soft tissue fillers, such as Juvederm or Belotero, to restore volume, especially in the mid-face area and at the nasolabial folds. Men can also benefit from augmentation of the jawline, creating a more masculine firmer jawline. Augmentation of the brow to create a stronger more masculine appearance is also popular.
SOMA Skin & Laser offers Juvederm facial filler injections for rejuvenation and the treatment of wrinkles, as well as other skin fillers Restylane and Belotero. Juvederm is a form of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, which can be injected to smooth wrinkles and restore youthful volume. Injection of Juvederm is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the United States. In the Juvederm procedure, the skin filler material is injected into areas that require volume enhancement. This can be a specific wrinkle or defect, or the entire mid-face to restore the rounded contours of youth. The most commonly treated areas for Juvederm are the wrinkles around the mouth and nose (nasolabial fold), the mid-face (cheeks), and lips, but other areas and defects can be treated as well.
The results of Juvederm are not permanent and must be repeated every few months to maintain the rejuvenating effect. Juvederm XC contain anesthetic making the procedure comfortable and well-tolerated. Juvederm is an excellent first step into the world of cosmetic procedures. Juvederm is also an excellent complement to botox for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles, and rejuvenating laser procedures. At SOMA Skin & Laser, all Juvederm injections are performed by a board-certified dermatologist.
