Wrinkle Injection for Men
Anti wrinkle treatment for men is a commonly used rejuvenation remedy to soften facial lines and folds. Men usually look for a naturally youthful appearance rather than getting flawless smooth skin texture. The most popular wrinkle treatment for men is toxin injections with botulinum toxin. However, facial volume loss enhancement with dermal fillers is gaining popularity.
At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin we regularly use toxin injections in combination with dermal fillers for highly advanced rejuvenation procedures. Non-surgical treatments range from subtle facial rejuvenation to substantial facial reshaping. Whatever treatments you decide on, you’ll find you are in good hands with our surgeons.
Popular toxin injection areas for men
Angry Lines are the lines positioned between the brows. Deep frown lines running vertically between the eyes make a person look angry or upset even when he is not. Our emotions are portrayed through facial expression and frown lines are facial wrinkles that appear between the eyes when a person frowns, or looks angry or concerned. At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin, we define frown lines as dynamic wrinkles caused by the action of the corrugator muscles. So why do people get wrinkle injection for frown lines? Well, If you don’t want to look cross or angry all the time then the wrinkle injection treatment is for you.
Worry Lines are the lines on the forehead. Most popular nonsurgical option for worry lines is muscle relaxing anti-wrinkle injections. Worry lines are most pronounced when you work muscles of the forehead. Some people are expressive with their forehead and wrinkling worry lines appearance is unavoidable. When one worries they scrunch the forehead muscle. At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin, toxin injections soften and relax those muscles so they can’t contract as vigorously as the non-treated muscles.
Crow’s feet lines radiating from the outer corners of the eyes when grinning. Crows feet wrinkles begin to form from the outside corners of your eyes when you reach your late-twenties. They may show up earlier for people who don’t take good care of their skin and later for those who do. But either way, crow’s feet are all but unavoidable.
Restylane, Juvederm and Radiesse are the most popular wrinkle treatments for men with fine lines and wrinkles. They are temporary dermal fillers we trust and choose to recommend at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin for our male patients. They are suitable for loss of fullness in the cheek and tear trough areas. They can also be used to reduce the cheek or nasolabial fold in conjunction with mini facelift minilift procedures. They deliver more natural looking results. Men lips should be soft a malleable unlike women’s lips which may pout, define or curl in shape. Specialised soft dermal fillers like Volbella, Belotero Soft and Restylane Vital are used to maintain that important aspect of a man’s lip.
Dr Hazem Kahlout (medical director at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin) is a pioneer in the use of fillers and toxin injections to reshape the face and facial features and create a more masculine and naturally attractive appearance – scalpel free.
Popular dermal filler areas for men include:
Nasolabial fold – to soften the dreaded cheek fold lines. In general these lines start at the sides of the nose and extend to the sides of your lips. No matter what age you are, these lines will be shown during facial expressions. But starting as early as your twenties, they may start to turn permanent.
Cheek volumisation to combat the flattening of the mid face as we age. If you’re self-conscious about having low or barely visible cheekbones, you may be considering cheek augmentation with fillers. Dermal fillers plump, rounded cheeks to portray a youthful look. While sagging cheeks often indicate ageing, and sunken cheeks are frequently associated with ill health
Lip reshaping of the lip to restore fullness and symmetry. The many complex movements and complex vasculature associated with lips can lead to relatively rapid depletion of their shape and contour. Enhancing lips, replenishing their volume and defining their borders in effect restore youthful complexion. Lip filler augmentation aims to bring out the best in your lips unique shape.
Under the eyes – to soften dark circles (the tear-trough groove). Shadows under your eyes can make you look tired. If people ask you or if you feel you look tired, then this might be one of the reasons. In young people the transition between lower eyelid and cheek is imperceptible. Developed under eye groove is an early sign of ageing around the eyes, displaying a fatigued and aged appearance to the face.
Chin and jawline enhancement – to create a more projected, stronger chin and jawline. Men to have a balanced chin, in keeping with either Frankfurt lines or ogee lines. These ratios measure between a line drawn vertically from the glabella “between the eyes” to the tip of the chin. Measurement is then compared to width of the brows. In me we desire a strong ratio.
Long Lasting Fillers
For deep facial volume restoration in men we favour the use non-hyaluronic acid fillers. These are different dermal filler to the usual ones used for fine lines and wrinkles. One of three long acting non hyaluronic-acid-based fillers are very popular for men. They are popular for two reasons. Firstly, they have a high lifting ability called G-Prime. The higher the G-Prime the more the filler is able to lift tissue. Men’s skin is more robust than women and require better suited filler for its weight. Second reason is these fillers are long lasting. Men are not great and coming back every few months to get a top-up. It’s a man thing!
Ellansé stimulates the skin to generate more collagen. In itself the filler contains Poly-L-Lactic Acid, just like Sculptra. But the PLLA is carried in a biodegradable gel. The PLLA stimulates collagen growth. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolises the PLLA, leaving behind only your own natural collagen. Ellanse lasts for 2 to 4 years. The volume enhancing Ellansé dermal filler is commonly used for patients who have lost a significant amount of facial fullness due to facial gaunt or ageing and will dramatically improve the appearance.
RADIESSE is made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Once injected, Radiesse provides immediate volume and correction and continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen for a long-lasting effect. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolises the CaHA microspheres, leaving behind only your own natural collagen. Radiesse is versatile, safe, and lasts over a year.
Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid just like Ellanse but without a carrier gel. Sculptra can stimulate natural collagen growth to help restore facial volume and fullness over time. It is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen. for results that can last more than two years. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months.
Another popular method to restore lost volume the male face is the use of their own fat in a process called lipofilling. Using your own fat harvested from another area of the body (usually the abdomen or flanks). The fat is first prepared for implantation by our surgeon. He uses the Tulip System. Fat is natural and very long lasting. The nano-fat Tulip system releases stem cells from collected fat. Through there anti-ageing effects, stem cells rejuvenate surrounding tissue structure.
