Although men have traditionally not been under the same pressure as women when it comes to ageing – they get called ‘silver foxes’ when women of a similar age are just old – they are increasingly becoming aware of facial ageing as evidenced by the number of skincare products now dedicated exclusively for men.
Taking care of yourself is no longer something to be ridiculed for and there is a growing realisation among men that injectables can give them a refreshed appearance with no downtime, which is an important consideration for the male patient that doesn’t want to take time off or look markedly different.
However, men still differ slightly from women in terms of what they are looking for in terms of injectables and here are some of the most popular treatments you should be offering your male patients:
Marked furrows on the brow or deep creases around the eyes can make you look tired and haggard when you want to stay dynamic and on the top of your game in the workplace.
Botox to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles in the upper third of the face is a fantastically effective treatment, but male patients often want a softening of facial lines rather than complete eradication. It is important to bear in mind, though, that stronger facial muscles in the male face may require more botulinum toxin to achieve the same effect.
Face Reshaping with Dermal Fillers
In a social media age, men are becoming as conscious of their looks as their female counterparts – particularly how they appear in a selfie. Temporary hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can be used to reshape the face and enhance facial features, without committing to permanent changes and with no downtime. However, a clear understanding of male facial anatomy and how it differs from a female ideal of beauty is essential to deliver optimal results. Dermal fillers can reduce nasolabial folds, address hollowing at the temples, boost cheek contours, improve jawline definition or produce a more defined chin.
Botox is also becoming increasingly popular with male patients for its amazing ability to reduce excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis. This condition can cause great distress and embarrassment to sufferers and Botox can massively reduce sweating in the hands or underarms by blocking the impulses from the nerves that trigger our sweat glands.
Botox for Migraine Relief
Another popular male Botox treatment is its use for migraine relief. Although it is now available on the NHS for chronic migraine sufferers, male patients are increasingly seeking private practices that offer Botox migraine therapy.
