Dermal Fillers for Men
Dermal fillers are a nonsurgical option for smoothing lines and wrinkles and adding fullness to the skin. Many men can benefit from this treatment to combat signs of early aging to achieve a younger-looking appearance. At the Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we offer the following dermal fillers:
Juvederm® XC- This hyaluronic acid dermal filler is used to help smooth facial wrinkles and add volume to the face. It is best for moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Results can last up to one year.
Juvederm Voluma™ XC- This filler adds volume to the cheek and mid-face areas to correct age-related volume loss. Also made with hyaluronic acid, results can last up to two years in the cheek area.
Restylane- Restylane is a hyaluronic acid based filler meant to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Results can last from 3-6 months.
Who is a Dermal Filler Candidate?
Men who are looking to combat signs of aging without undergoing invasive surgery can often benefit from dermal fillers. Those who are looking to eliminate lines and wrinkles around the mouth or nose, or are interested in changing the contour of their jaw or lips can schedule a consultation with one of our expert injectors to see if they are a good fit for this procedure.
The Dermal Filler Procedure
The dermal filler procedure is the same for each filler, regardless of the brand. Some fillers are created with an anesthetic built in, while some are not. For those without a built in anesthetic, a topical anesthetic can be applied to the treatment areas to ensure a comfortable treatment. Then, the filler will be injected into targeted areas using a very fine needle. Treatment often takes about 15 minutes to complete.
Recovery and Healing
There is no downtime associated with dermal fillers, so you can return to work or other activities right after treatment. Some patients may experience mild redness, swelling, bruising, or itching in the treatment areas, though these side-effects should be temporary.
