Injectables for Men

Injectables For Men

While women usually dominate the discussion when it comes to cosmetic injectables, men are actually just as likely to benefit from them. No matter your age or the current status of your skin, if you’re a man looking to achieve smoother, more youthful skin, injectables can help. Fillers & injectables for men are growing in popularity every year.

What Are Injectables?

Non-Surgical Treatments For MenYou may have heard the term “injectables” thrown around from time to time when discussing wrinkles and complexion, but of course, it’s never immediately apparent what injectables actually are.

For starters, injectable treatments are basically just what they sound like. Fillers for men are liquid chemical substances that are injected into the skin in order to address your facial contours and achieve a more plumped up, youthful appearance. Injectable treatments primarily treat static and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are those that appear over time due to the effects of gravity on your face and the natural loss of collagen that occurs with age. Dynamic wrinkles appear with time because of repetitive muscle movements and facial expressions.

There are two major types of cosmetic injectables: dermal fillers and neurotoxins. Dermal filler injectables replace lost collagen by helping to restore volume to fill out lines and “hollow” areas (common in the cheeks). Most dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid or HA. Neurotoxins like Botox are actually toxic substances that, when used appropriately and in small doses, can block nerve messages to the facial muscles. This, in turn, causes the muscles to relax and reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and deep lines.

Both dermal filler and neurotoxin injectable treatments are impermanent, meaning that if you like the results you get with them, you’ll need to return to your doctor every so often for another round.

Often, patients are interested in receiving both dermal fillers and Botox (or a similar neurotoxin). The effect is a smoothing of both dynamic wrinkles and static wrinkles for an overall smoother and more youthful skin appearance.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Injectables?

Men who are the best candidates for non surgical injectables include those who:

  • Are in good overall physical health
  • Are non-smokers
  • Have a realistic and positive outlook on how their appearance can be improved with cosmetic injectables
  • Are committed to maintaining good care of their skin

You may be interested in injectable treatments if you:

  • Are troubled by fine or deep lines or facial creases
  • Are troubled by a loss of volume in the, (usually most noticeable in the cheeks) and would like to restore volume in your face
  • Have tried other solutions for fine lines and wrinkles, including serums, creams, and facial massagers or dermatological treatments
  • Feel that these issues with your skin are holding you back regarding relationships, career opportunities, or socially

How Do Cosmetic Injectables for Men Help?

Many men are apprehensive about getting injectable treatments or using hyaluronic acid. As stated above, it tends to be more of a woman’s experience, though it certainly doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, men can benefit greatly from cosmetic injectables. Not only can fillers for men diminish or, in some cases, completely get rid of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases, but fillers for men can also actually change the shape of your face. This is done mostly with dermal fillers.

For example, if you’re unhappy with the shape of your nose — perhaps there is a large bump on the middle ridge or you feel that your nasal tip is slightly crooked — dermal fillers can usually amend these issues and improve your facial contours. Certainly, fillers for men can’t do everything. If you want to reduce the overall size of your nose, for instance, you’ll need to get a nose job.

On the other hand, shape issues such as a large bump on the center of your nose’s ridge or a crooked tip can certainly be improved. Your doctor will simply inject dermal fillers strategically in other areas of the nose in order to create a more symmetrical, appealing appearance.

Another common way that men use dermal fillers and hyaluronic acid to augment the shape of their facial anatomy is by getting injections in and around their chin and jaw line. It’s not unusual for men to be unhappy with the shape and size of their jaw, and certainly, this facial feature plays a large role in the male appearance. Men naturally want a a masculine appearance, which often means a stronger, wider, or more chiseled jaw line, and dermal fillers are the perfect nonsurgical answer to this issue.

Unlike dermal fillers, Botox and similar neurotoxins usually only do one thing: freeze dynamic wrinkles for a smoother skin appearance. Still, Botox is extremely effective at what it does. It’s excellent at fixing deep creases and wrinkles and is often the best option for lines that have nothing to do with volume loss.

Overall, some of the most common cosmetic issues that fillers for men can help include:

  • Smile and laugh lines
  • Loss of volume in the cheeks
  • Loss of volume in the lips
  • Marionette lines
  • Overall facial wrinkles and folds
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines and creases
  • “11”s or glabellar lines (vertical lines between the eyes on the forehead)
  • Lack of definition in the jaw
  • Crooked or misshapen nose

Scheduling a Consultation Appointment

Fillers & Injectables For MenIf you are a man who is interested in injectables to improve your appearance, your first step should be to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Sieber to discuss non-surgical treatments for men.  A consultation is necessary so that Dr. Sieber can give you a short physical examination, go over your medical history, and discuss your goals and options with you. At your appointment, be sure to bring any pertinent information about your medical history, including any medications you are on or supplements you take.

Also take along pictures of any facial features that you would like to emulate with injectables. If you are interested in other cosmetic procedures, your consultation appointment is a great time to bring these up as well. In some cases, injectables may not be the answer for you, and Dr. Sieber can advise you on a more appropriate solution.

Dr. Sieber is attentive, responsive, and well trained. I had seen him for Botox and filler and he had done both without any pain or bruising and more importantly the results were fabulous. He has met with me on time at each appointment. He communicates what to expect, made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure, checked on my healing every day post procedure. He couldn’t be more delightful not more talented. I had seen other plastic surgeons for in office treatments over the past decade and Dr. Sieber is at the top of the list in terms of delivering the desired outcome and high quality care.*
