Solutions for a range of medical and cosmetic uses.
The reasons that men choose to have cosmetic injections are varied and can be quite different from why women have them. Some men want to look younger and fresher, but other men simply want to appear less tired, stressed and look good for their age. Apart from wrinkles and lines, injectables in men are also used to treat excessive sweating, migraines, teeth grinding, and remove double chins. Depressed scars from either acne or trauma can also be corrected with dermal fillers.
We know most men are time poor and want fast results that are long lasting without anyone knowing they have had anything done. With over 20 years of experience treating busy men we know how to tailor a treatment plan that works best for men.
Wrinkles and lines can be treated with topical treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, and the Infini device (a combination of fractional microneedling with radio frequency energy). Injectables are not a beauty salon treatment, they are a medical procedure, and as such, should only be performed in a medical clinic.
Skin is returned to a more youthful appearance.
Wrinkle injections are used to treat lines and wrinkles that are caused by muscle contraction. The most common areas that men request treatment for are the frown line between the eyes and the worry lines on the forehead.
The crow’s lines around the eyes can also be a concern in some men, especially those who work outside or drive around for long periods as sun glare can cause these to become quite severe.
When facial lines become very deep from repeated muscle contraction over many years, they start to be present even when the muscles are not moving (what we call ‘lines at rest’). This is because the supporting collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin have been slowly broken down and skin volume has been permanently lost. Also, as men age, there is a natural loss of facial volume that causes folds to deepen and contributes to sagging of the face.
Where volume has been lost the way to replace this is through dermal fillers. These are products that are injected into the skin to add volume. By far the most common dermal fillers used in Australia are based on hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar in the skin. There are different thicknesses of hyaluronic acid that are used in different areas and at different depths, and several different brands are now available in Australia.
Dermal filler injections are commonly used around the eyes and the mouth. Dark circles under the eyes can be caused by volume loss in the tear trough area, and dermal fillers can be used to correct contour deformity. Dermal fillers can fill out and improve wrinkles and also revitalise and enhance features.
In the area being treated avoid using topical creams with active ingredients on the day before and other skin treatments such as laser in the week before injectables.
Normal activity and work can be resumed immediately after treatment. Avoid rubbing the area for a few hours after treatment and wait until the next day before going to the gym.
Before and after images are presented purely as a reference point of the results that can be achieved. Everyone is unique and outcomes will vary and realistic expectations need to be discussed on a case by case basis.
