While dermal fillers are typically regarded as a ‘feminine’ treatment, they are increasingly being sought out by men, with aesthetic clinics seeing the number of enquiries for male dermal filler treatment double over the last few years.
Dermal fillers can be used across a wide range of areas in the face such as
- Nose-to-mouth lines (nasolabial lines)
- Mouth-to-chin lines (marionette lines)
- Hollow temples
- Under-eyes (tear troughs or dark circles)
- Bridge of the nose (non-surgical nose job)
With dermal fillers having the ability to enhance and rejuvenate many different areas of the face, it is no surprise that men and women usually seek out treatment on different areas. Women typically go for treatments that soften the face for a more oval or heart-shaped look, whereas men’s treatments often involve achieving a more defined bone structure and jawline.
Dermal Fillers for men to achieve a more masculine look
In men, volume loss from cheeks and a sagging jawline can lead to a tired and aging look. Naturally filling these hollows and putting definition back into the jaw can result in a healthier and masculine appearance.
Additionally, it is also common for men to notice fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes and forehead. Sagging jowls is also common, this due to loss of lack of collagen and elastin that leads to the loss of structural integrity of a man’s face.
Here at Cosmetier we use TEOXANE for the correction of wrinkles, folds and loss of volume in the mid face that develop with age. TEOXANE Laboratories continue to develop hyaluronic acid dermal fillers specially designed to accommodate your face’s dynamic and natural movements. To sculpt and define the jawline we use Radiesse, a biostimulator filler which lays a scaffold and promotes skin tightening.
Top three areas of the male face to treat with dermal fillers
A masculine jawline is typically wide and well-defined. An angular jaw has been popularised in modern culture as being a classic attractive male facial feature, just think Brad Pitt. Dermal fillers are able to create a defined jaw to either enhance its natural shape or rebalance with the rest of the face. This treatment will project the jaw laterally and strengthen the jawline, resulting in a square jaw which is a desirable look in a man.
Chin filler is becoming more and more popular amongst men and women when trying to create a strong face shape. This filler compliments jaw filler perfectly and is used to balance an over-proportioned mid-face, for example full cheeks or retruded chin.
Using filler in cheeks may result in a more feminine look, the fullest part of the cheek in men differs to that of women and is more subtle. Therefore filler applied where it is needed allows refreshed look, gives a much stronger looking bone structure and more masculine appearance.
By understanding the effects of ageing in the male face, the concepts of attractiveness and the differences between men and women, dermal fillers are able to restore and rejuvenate as well as enhance the masculine face.
