Now more than ever, men are opting for injectable treatments such as dermal fillers, to help them achieve their aesthetic objectives. It’s being more widely recognized and accepted that men simply want to look and feel good just as much as women do. Body positivity is made for all sizes and genders, and any gender-biased stigma associated with aesthetic treatments is being gradually dismantled. After all, the clock ticks at the same speed for both men and women. So why shouldn’t men get the chance to roll back the clock just like women do?
The Masculine Face
The typically sought-after masculine facial structure is angular and strong. High cheekbones, a prominent chin with a cleft, accompanied by a chiseled jawline are all common traits of a classically ‘attractive’ male. On some instances, a broader nose may sometimes be sought by male clients.
How dermal fillers work for men
One of the most impressive aspects of dermal fillers, and perhaps their main selling point, is that they are entirely buildable and personalized, meaning no one-size-fits-all approach is taken and you can add as much or as little dermal filler to an area as needed. And they can be used in many different facial zones – they don’t just up plump the cheeks, but can also be introduced to follow the cheek line downwards, helping to enhance this angle and create a more masculine facial structure. Adding dermal fillers to the chin also helps elongate the jawline and create a more angular appearance to the lower face, effectively altering the perspective of the symmetry and balance of the natural facial features. Thicker filler formulations such as Juvederm Voluma are ideal to add volume to the cheeks.

Signs of ageing affect us all, both men and women – though it is believed that women tend to notice them first. This may be due to the natural make-up of our skin, and the fact that men’s skin tends to be tougher and thicker than women’s skin. However, time moves forward at the very same pace for everyone, and the gradual slow-down of collagen and naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid production unfortunately affects everyone – man and woman. Frequent signs of aging for men included facial folds, which appear between the nose and mouth and beneath the eyes, running down into into the tear trough. Dermal fillers can be placed within these areas to soften the appearance of these facial folds to produce a more youthful looking complexion, and without adding any feminine appearance to a male client’s face. The fillers will simply restore lost volume, bringing back the original, masculine face.
