How dermal fillers create a more masculine appearance
The Men’s Health magazine has reported that half of men are unhappy with their looks. Can this really be the case? And is social media to blame? Given that posting photos on a social media is a popular trend, increasing numbers of men are seeking ways to enhance their natural facial features. More men are turning to non-surgical treatments such as dermal fillers to achieve a more traditionally masculine appearance.
As we age, our features get softer. This is due to gravity and can have a feminising effect on men. Jawlines are heavily associated with masculinity and if yours is beginning to look less defined, then you may be looking to restore a contoured profile.
If you’re tempted to turn back the clock and regain a more chiselled, manly face, let us reassure you, it’s never been so easy to do so. Gone are the days when you had to book yourself in for surgery and take a few weeks off work to recover. Now, you can have a cosmetic treatment in your lunch break and return back to the office looking refreshed and more youthful. Could a more masculine look be just a few injections away?
Dermal filler treatment areas
There’s a lot that can be done to firm up a jawline. Jawline fillers are used for this. Cheek fillers are essential for chiselling more definition into the mid-face area. As for the chin, if you want your chin to appear more strong, and better showcase existing chin features, chin fillers will be injected into the area.
In addition to this, brows can be made more horizontal and less curved, while any body image problems you have with the shape of your nose may also be corrected. Drooping nose tips, or humps over the bridge of the nose, can be removed with some carefully administered and very targeted fillers.
How dermal fillers work
When injected under the skin, the hyaluronic acid gels that make up the dermal fillers begin to soak up water. This puts pressure on the skin above, which then firms the jaw, or accentuates the cheekbones. Deep creases in the face can also be softened in this way. The treatment time is under 30 minutes, pain-free thanks to a local anaesthetic cream which is applied beforehand and the results, you’ll be pleased to hear, will be visible immediately.
As our treatment is utterly bespoke and takes into account how every individual face is ageing, you’ll need to visit our practitioner before your appointment in order to discuss what you’d like to achieve and receive suggestions of how masculine enhancement can be obtained. Dermal fillers are not just for women. When applied to men, they can greatly improve your appearance and give you more confidence in your looks.
