Recent studies have shown that men are undergoing more cosmetic and anti-aging treatments to combat the effects of aging. Whether it’s the time we live in, the rise in “selfies”, a shift in generational mentality, or the desire to stay competitive in the workplace, cosmetic treatments are more common and openly accepted for all kinds of people–including men! Needless to say, women no longer dominate the cosmetic world! Men are now taking action to combat aging and accentuate a more youthful masculinity with these popular treatments.
Neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport work to relax the lines that form on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and at the outside corners of the eyes, aka “Crow’s Feet.” The end result is a smoother appearance, a reduction in pore size and a healthier glow to the skin. Wrinkles can start to appear as early as the mid 20s and progress with time depending on lifestyle, and many men are choosing to have “Brotox” as a preventative measure so that new lines and wrinkles stop from forming in the first place. You know what they say: “The best wrinkle is the one you never get!”
Chin Augmentation and Jaw Contouring
One main defining masculine facial feature is the jawline. You’ll notice that most superheroes and male models have all of this in common! Their jaw and chin is defined, giving them their gruelingly handsome appearance that everyone loves. Chin and jaw definition can be easily achieved with specific dermal fillers made to sculpt and shape the jawline. Juvederm Voluma, for example, is a hyaluronic acid filler which is made to last up to two years!
Double Chin Elimination
To get a more powerful effect and more chiseled jawline, Kybella treatments can be performed in conjunction with chin and jawline filler to eliminate the double chin. Kybella is an in-office procedure that consists of deoxycholilc acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that breaks down and metabolizes dietary fat. Treatment consists of a series of injections to destroy the fat cells, leaving you with one, single chin and a more defined jawline.
Platelet Rich Plasma for Hair Loss
Starting as early as the mid 20s, men can begin to experience hair loss due to male pattern baldness. Luckily, Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as “PRP” can stop hair loss and provoke new hair to grow back. PRP and growth factors are extracted from blood and injected into the scalp at the level of the hair follicles for cell regeneration and hair follicle reactivation. PRP improves the quality and thickness of hair, and most men see results after only 4 treatments.
The most powerful rejuvenation treatment involves improving the appearance of the under-eyes in a quick in-office procedure, and men ranging from 20s to 60s can benefit from this easy treatment. The dark circles that make us look aged, tired, sad, or worn out can be diminished with the use of a dermal filler such as Juvederm or Restylane. If you’re looking for an overall refreshed appearance, this is the treatment to undergo since it leaves you looking renewed and bright-eyed.
Whether you’re a man of action looking to stay competitive in the workforce or simply wanting to combat the signs of aging, a qualified Facial Plastic Surgeon can help you look and feel your best with a personalized treatment plan.
