We all age at different rates, but none of us can stop the body's intrinsic biological clock from ticking away. Your skin ages by a fraction of a day every day and over time that can start to show! At some point, you might find yourself thinking, "I need to do something about the wrinkling on my face." The good news is that cosmetic procedures have become more socially acceptable for all genders in recent years.
More and more men are taking advantage of non-invasive treatments to improve their appearance and slow the ageing process.
But there's just one concern. No man wants to end up with overdone, unnatural result!
Have you ever seen someone who you could tell had something "done" to his or her face? Maybe they hade that telltale overblown"chipmunk" cheek look, or their lips look way too plumped up.
On the other hand, you may have seen a friend or relative after a while and thought to yourself, "They look great!". Here is where you might find yourself thinking, "I wonder if they got a new skincare routine or had a lifestyle change that making them look more refreshed?"
Assuming both got dermal fillers, why the stark differences. This is a question that prevents some men from embracing cosmetic treatments.
They want changes that are subtle,not overblown and obvious to everyone around them.
With that in mind, here are our top 2 guidelines for men who want to look naturally refreshed with dermal fillers.
Tip #1: Choose Your Doctor Wisely
When men come to our clinic, they are curious about cosmetic procedures to rejuvenate their appearance.
And this is not just a desire for those who might have neglected their skin in the past. Even those who take meticulous care of their skin know that there's a limit to how much you can accomplish with lotions and creams, especially if you are in your late fortie,fifties and beyond.
So the men who come to our clinic want to look instantly fresher and more rested, which in turn gives them a more energetic, youthful appearance.
But at the same time they do not want to look "plastic" or like suddenely every wrinkle has been magically erased from their face.
They want to look good for their age, not like they are trying to look like they arestill in their 20s.
Yes, this is not a concern unique to women alone!
When cosmetic treatments like fillers and Botox are done well, you should not be able to tell that the person has had them.
Instead, you might think the person looks really well rested or happier, or maybe even younger than you remember.
This result, however, depends largely on whether you are working with a licensed aesthetician who has a proven track record of safe and natural-looking results.
During your initial consultation, your doctor will carefully inquire about your medical history and perform a physical examination of the areas you wish to have treated.
Their knowledge and experience will allow them to tailor recommendations to your specific needs and goals and then carry out the procedure in way that accomplishes those exact goals.
Tip #2: Choose The Right Filler For Your Problem
A natural, refreshed look, for example, requires a more sophisticated knowledge of the different types and degrees of dermal fillers than most people have.
If you are considering treatment with dermal fillers, you have probably heard of several brands, such as Juvederm, Intraline, Restylane, Belotero, Sculptra, or Radiesse.
What you might not know is that each of these produts has a different formulation. Even dermal fillers with the same base ingredient (like HA fillers) or even under the same brand have different levels of concentration, consistency or viscosity.
Some are much more suitable than others for softening wrinkles around the eyes or hollows under the eyes. Other types of fillers are great for subtly plumping up lips without making them look overly puffy.
And still other fillers are best for adding volume to the cheeks or lifting the folds from the nose to the mouth.
Based on individual skin type and facial appearance, any man can benefit from different fillers from one or more brands.
So, if you want a natural, refreshed look, you need to choose a medical cosmetic professional who has the expertise and experience in using different dermal fillers.
Tip #3: You Need a Whole Face Approach
Many of us are unhappy with certain wrinkles or a specific area of our face. For example, many men in their late 40s or 50s notice how much more prominent the "marionette lines" or nasolabial folds are.
These are the creases that run from the side of the nostrils to the outer corners of the mouth.
When this becomes a problem area, you may think that the obvious thing to do is to put fillers directly into these wrinkles to smooth them out.
However, if you simply try to fill in the creases of these lines, your face might end up looking unnatural. The real culprit may actually be a loss of volume in the midface cheekbone area due to aging.
This loss of structure support may then result in sagging skin that further accentuates any wrinkles and folds in the lower part of the face.
Therefore the best approach is not to "fill in" individual wrinkles or folds, but to consider the overall structure and appearance of your face.
When you consider the overall facial structure, you may find that you need fillers not only for the nasolabial folds, but also for other areas, such as around the cheekbones.
By adding specific amounts of fillers to other areas of your face that have also lost volume, you can restore balance to your face and make the problem area (in this case nasolabial folds) less noticeable.
