Facial Enhancement For Men
The Male Face
The aging male face experiences many of the same changes as the aging female face. These changes include the 3 D’s of aging – Deflation (loss of facial volume), Descent (sagging of the facial tissues), and Deterioration (texture and colour changes of the skin).
Facial rejuvenation for men has become more popular in recent years, as men have discovered the advantages of looking younger and better. The most popular aesthetic procedures focus on reducing wrinkles, improving facial contours, and resurfacing the skin. Since these treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive, they do not interfere with the male patient’s busy lifestyle.
Deflation occurs when volume is lost in the mid-face and under eye area. Facial descent occurs as gravity eventually lowers the eyes and cheeks, creating a more rectangular, tired appearance. Injectable dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane effectively restore volume, and sharpen the contours of the male face . Comprised of hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers are also used to plump facial lines and folds, and add volume to dark under eye hollows. In addition, the use of Botox will reduce wrinkles in the upper face, providing a more rested look that is refreshed and natural-looking.
Deterioration occurs as the skin loses collagen, and undergoes pigmentation and textural changes – the effects of cumulative sun damage over the years. Lasers can effectively smooth the skin, and restore even skin tone with minimal to no recovery time. For men who suffer from ingrown hairs, laser hair removal is an excellent option to help reduce the inflammation caused by shaving.
As the male face ages, the appearance of veins and capillaries on the face is also very common. This is often a form of Rosacea, which can effectively be managed with lasers to reduce the look of redness in the skin. Physician-grade skincare products are also available to help repair, rejuvenate, and protect the skin.
