Men Can Get Injectables and Fillers Too!

Skincare and aesthetic treatments are often associated with women. However, in recent years, we’ve seen a growing number of men, one of the fastest growing groups, paying more attention to their skincare and appearance overall. And hence, men are increasingly getting neurotoxins (and fillers) to appear younger, especially in the age of social media and selfies.

Cosmetic injections are different for men and women

One reason for this is that men and women age differently. Men, in general, are more concerned about deep brow furrows, hollowing features, and fine lines caused by repeated sun exposure. 

When men seek out cosmetic injections, their aim is not to completely eradicate wrinkles (which are often the aim of many women) but just to make them less pronounced. Men, after all, still want to keep their masculine facial features. 

Injectable neurotoxin for men

The expression lines around the brows and eyes can become more pronounced as you age. This can make you look angry or worried even when you feel otherwise. 

Injectable neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport can block the nerve impulses to the muscles (the culprit for the expression lines) from firing, causing these lines to soften. Its effect can take about 2 to 14 days to set in and can last for up to 4 months. 

When you come in at Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery in Knoxville, we will assess your needs and skin condition. We will adjust the dosage as needed to preserve your facial features while creating that ‘refreshed’ look that you want.

Are injectables right for you?

You can benefit from neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport if you want to:

  • Minimize deep brow furrows
  • Make frown lines less visible
  • Smoothen crow’s feet

Facial fillers for men

As you age, facial volume is lost causing some features to look sunken. This loss in facial volume can also make wrinkles look worse. 

Dermal fillers are used to restore the youthful look. When administered, this soft, gel-like substance sits just beneath the skin.

Facial fillers are a good option if you want to:

  • Minimize the creases around your mouth
  • Enhance the contours of your cheeks, chin, and jawline
  • Improve the volume of your temple hollowing

Aging is inevitable but looking aged is not. Cosmetic neurotoxins and dermal fillers can make you look more youthful while still maintaining your ‘manly’ features.
