Men use injectables, too
You might think we’re kidding – but we’re not. It’s taken men longer to fully realize the potential of looking a little younger, but the benefits are certainly obvious! Although women seek fillers to look more feminine, men seek fillers to maintain a more masculine appeal and to restore a more energetic “can do” appearance.
Facial volume loss will make anyone look fatigued and for men the most obvious areas that relay a tired persona are the naso labial folds and under the eyes.
Easy way to look younger and more energetic
Filling in the deep nasolabial fold can take away years from perceived age and filling under eye hollows makes a dramatic change in erasing a tired look.
Fillers without the pain
Filler products are placed with very small cannulas which have a rounded tip. That means only 1 or 2 needle sticks to allow entry of the cannula. Because there is no sharp needle repeatedly piercing your skin and no shearing of nerves beneath, the placement is virtually pain free.
Your filler choices
Filler products used for naso labial folds include Perlane, Radiesse and Juvederm Ultra Plus. Radiesse has the most longevity of 12 to 18 months. A different option for volume restoration is Sculptra – not a filler per se, but a volume stimulator. Sculptra provides a final result over time with several treatment sessions required. Although
*Sculptra is not injected with the smooth tip cannula; instead your skin is numbed prior to injection and numbing solution is incorporated into the product to create a more comfortable experience.
Filler for undereye hollows
Filler for under the eye is Restylane as it has the most fluid properties and also enough support to smoothly lift and fill dark hollows. The treatment offers instant results with little likelihood of bruising. Any swelling is modest and subsides quickly over a couple of days. Restylane Under Eye Treatment
