The soaring popularity of dermal fillers can be attributed to several factors: the procedure is less costly than cosmetic surgery, it is less invasive, and downtime is minimal to non-existent. The use of dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation is usually associated with women. At Nowak Aesthetics, we would like to point out that men can benefit equally from facial fillers! After all, men are not exempt from the ravages of aging. As men age, their facial skin also loses elasticity and experiences volume loss, the same as women.
Below are the most common FDA-approved dermal fillers that men in San Diego and neighboring areas should consider to rejuvenate their facial appearance.
This popular dermal filler is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that is responsible for the plump appearance of youthful skin. When one ages, the supply of hyaluronic acid dwindles, allowing the formation of wrinkles, lines, and folds. Juvederm is perfect for men whose main concern has to do with nasolabial folds (folds that run from the side of the nose to the mouth). Juvederm’s results last approximately nine months.
Like Juvederm, Restylane contains hyaluronic acid and is equally effective in improving the appearance of nasolabial folds. In addition, the dermal filler reduces the appearance of mild to moderate creases around the mouth. Restylane is also used for lip enhancement and adding volume to the cheeks, chin, and jaw.
Aside from hyaluronic acid, collagen is another naturally occurring substance that gives the skin its smooth and plump appearance. As a dermal filler, Radiesse works by stimulating collagen production. Radiesse is ideal for men who want to reduce the appearance of folds that run between the nose and the mouth’s outer portion (also known as parentheses) and marionette lines which extend from the outer portion of the skin.
