There has recently been 15-30% increase in the number of Botox procedures carried out on men, as ‘botox’ is no longer considered to be ‘just for girls’, and the trend looks set to continue.
The motivation behind seeking anti-wrinkle treatment varies between individuals. The most commonly treated area in men is the frown lines between the eyes. If these lines are deep, they can cause a person to look stressed and angry even when their expression is neutral. Removing these lines can give a person a more ‘approachable’ appearance, which can be a career advantage for many men. It has also been clinically proven to be of great psychological benefit, lifting mood and making the patient feel happier about their appearance.
The procedure is carried out in exactly the same way as for a woman although the application of the product will be different. A man will need a larger dose due to having a bulkier musculature, particularly if the frontal portion is to be treated. Special care is taken around the brow area to avoid the arched “startled” look which can occur. Another sensitive spot is around the crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes. It is easy to create a “wide eyed” look which can be too feminine in a man. As a larger dose is required to achieve the desired effect this may slightly increase the cost of treatment.
“Fantastic forward thinking and innovative Clinic. The whole team make you feel very relaxed and at ease yet professional. They offer a wide range of treatments suitable for budgets. As a man I was made to feel really comfortable in what has historically been for ladies only. However the team at Dentelle took away any initial concerns I had and I was made to feel comfortable. Would highly recommend and I’ll be back.”
Wrinkles are seen as ugly reminders of the ageing process for both men and women. The good news is that they can be removed to preserve an overall more youthful and fresh appearance.
Over recent years the use of dermal fillers such as Juvederm , Belotero, Teosyal and Restylane, has evolved to help to restore the skin’s natural elasticity by injecting naturally sourced hyaluronic acid into the dermal layer of skin. This is an effective non-surgical alternative to cosmetic surgery and all the unwanted associated risks, with a short treatment time, very little downtime and much lower overall costs.
Dermal fillers can be used to soften deep lines such as those running from the nose to the sides of the mouth, restore volume in the face where tissues have started to sag or simply to treat very minor superficial wrinkles or increase elasticity in any area of the skin.
“Men don’t talk about skin care much, and I am one of them. Furthermore, I am not the type to gush. However, following my HydraFacial with Clare at Dentelle I am compelled to do both!
It was the first time I have ever had a clinical facial and I didn’t know what to expect, but Clare eased me through the 6 steps which take just under 1 hour in total.
What I experienced was soothing, cleansing, moisturizing, non-invasive, non-irritating and thoroughly relaxing. I looked & felt more youthful, fresh-faced, and rejuvenated.
I will be returning to Dentelle as I was impressed, and I don’t impress easily…!”
