Injectables for men

August 31, 2016

In recent years men are increasingly embracing injectables (aka Anti-Wrinkle injections & Dermal Fillers) as an anti-ageing and preventative tool, it has become more the norm for men to consider aesthetic treatments to enhance their appearance and boost their confidence. Generally men are seeking a natural look, to soften lines, appear ‘less tired’, ‘less angry’ and to replace volume that has gradually reduced over time.

At first, men are often wary of anti-ageing injectables as they can sometimes feel it is a female domain and more of a ‘feminine’ treatment to undergo. They can sometimes fear others knowing they have had anti-ageing treatments, and fear they may result in a frozen or fake appearance, for example; over-arched eyebrows, high cheek bones and over-filled lips. When administered correctly, the results should appear natural and not overly obvious.

The most common anti-wrinkle treatment areas for men include:

  • Forehead – To smooth the horizontal forehead lines.
  • Vertical frown lines – The area between the eyebrows.
  • Crow’s feet – The lines around the eyes.

Men are less likely to want a brow lift unless there is a specific issue with heavy brows or correcting a natural asymmetry of the brows.

Regarding dermal fillers, men are most likely to replace volume for:

  • Nasolabial folds – The deep line from outer nostril toward the outer mouth.
  • Mid cheek hollows – As opposed to wanting a higher or more prominent cheek bone which women often seek.
  • Tear trough – for under eye hollowness adding volume and a stronger appearance to the jaw line or receding chin and deep smile lines.
  • Temple – rejuvenation of temple hollowing and to create a stronger nose bridge (more popular with Asian men).
  • Lips – Generally having filler in the lips is a treatment usually performed on women, however men can obtain a very natural looking lip rejuvenation if they have very thin lips or simply want to replace volume lost over time. Men usually do not want the overly voluptuous lips that women seek.
