Today, men are both more open and more proactive about their appearance than at any other time in history. In fact, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 1.1 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men in 2010, and those numbers just keep rising. There are a myriad of reasons for this -- an uptick in the economy is certainly one of them, but also, men are living longer. And, like women, they want to look younger not only for their vanity, but also as a way of staying competitive in a shrinking job market.
Dermal fillers are a great non-surgical way for men to achieve a more youthful appearance. They work not by paralyzing the muscles like wrinkle relaxers, but by filling in the folds and creases of the face with a synthetic material that produces volume and, in some cases, causes your body to actually produce collagen. Depending on the filler used, and your body’s reaction to it, the results can last anywhere from 6 months to 3 years which makes fillers perfect for eradicating the smile lines that run from your nose down to your chin, your crow’s feet, and that furrow between your eyes that can make you appear older than you feel. There are no incisions involved. Just a few pin-pricks and you are ready to roll.
At Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, our highly gifted surgeons use the following fillers: Restylane®, Juvederm®, and Artefill® either alone or in combination depending on the depth and location of the treated area. Each has its pluses although Artefill® can be ideal for sunken cheeks and very deep lines as it provides the most volume. Your doctor will discuss all of your treatment options with you during your initial consultation so give us a call today to find out how dermal fillers can restore your youthful glow and vitality.
