Although dermal fillers are predominantly marketed toward women, men can also benefit from their restorative and rejuvenating effects. Fillers for men are the exact same as the ones used for women; the difference lies in the treatment area and injection method.
Because men’s facial anatomy is different from women’s, additional care must be taken to avoid overfilling or creating undesirable results.
In the past, cosmetic surgery as a whole was largely dominated by female patients. However, in recent years, more men have shown an increase in both preventative and restorative cosmetic procedures.
Fillers like Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Belotero® are all popular fillers for men. And, of course, BOTOX®, the neurotoxin injectable, is also frequently used.
It is important to mention that BOTOX is not classified as a filler as it does not restore any lost volume to the face; instead, it immobilizes muscles in treatment areas to provide smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It is also used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including migraines and lazy eye.
If you are looking to boost plumpness and fill in specific areas on the face, filler is the go-to solution.
The facial anatomy of men and women differ in many ways; it’s vital that you work with a surgeon who offers men’s treatment. For example, when it comes to filling tear troughs, men have a flatter median cheek, which can lead to more pronounced hollowness as they age and lose fat in the face.
In order to avoid puffiness, the surgeon must make sure to select the best candidates and the right filler for their concerns. An ideal candidate for tear trough filler will have good skin thickness and elasticity. Furthermore, a filler with a thinner consistency is advised to prevent imbalance and an uneven contour.
