Have you noticed that your face is looking older and becoming more wrinkled? Do your eyes look tired and baggy even though you’ve had enough sleep and feel energetic? Every year more men are having cosmetic procedures to help them rejuvenate their appearance.
When Dr Natasha Moscato (MBBS, FRACGP, Cosmetic Doctor) treated her patient Adam (a model, actor and entertainer) she explained that it’s possible to soften expression lines, create a stronger jawline and reduce wrinkles by using anti-wrinkle injections and dermal filler treatments. Dr Natasha Moscato noted it’s important that the Cosmetic Doctor or Cosmetic Nurse understands how to use different types of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections to create a rejuvenated, fresher look for their male patients.
Since 2005, led by Dr Gavin Chan our highly trained and experienced Cosmetic Doctors and Cosmetic Nurses have treated men with cosmetic procedures with a focus on keeping results natural and visually pleasing. Over enhancing men’s faces with anti-wrinkle injections or dermal filler treatment can make them look unnatural and give them a strange appearance. This highlights the importance of going to a reputable medical clinic that focuses on treating men with cosmetic procedures.
Cosmetic rejuvenation for men using anti-wrinkle injections
We can use anti-wrinkle injections to relax facial muscles that are causing deep wrinkles and furrows. They are the best non-surgical choice for smoothing out upper, middle and lower face wrinkles and fine lines. The anti-wrinkle injections we use contain a protein that triggers the injected facial muscle to smooth out and relax the lines and wrinkles in the treatment area.
When we treat men with anti-wrinkle injections we don’t always treat crows feet around the corners of the eyes. Keeping some fine lines in this area can make men appear more distinguished. We also avoid over treating the brow line with anti-wrinkle injections because having brow movement and a brow that slightly drops is a masculine feature. While many women have anti-wrinkle injections around their jawline to slim down their face, we rarely treat the male jawline because a strong and square shaped jaw line is considered to be a masculine feature.
At your consultation, your Cosmetic Doctor or Cosmetic Nurse will discuss with you what you would like to change and how you would like to look. We can then advise what the best anti-wrinkle injection treatment will be. Our goal with anti-wrinkle treatments is to allow for some wrinkling and natural expressions. We believe that wrinkle treatments need to be subtle and aesthetically pleasing. View our before and after anti-wrinkle pictures here
Cosmetic rejuvenation for men using dermal filler treatment
During the natural ageing process, you may have noticed volume has been lost in your face. This occurs as a result of the skin’s supportive network of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid breaking down. When this happens the muscles that are pulling your face up become weaker and the muscles that pull your face down become stronger.
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that revolumise and restore areas of the face non-surgically. Many dermal filler options are made from a clear gel composed of a substance that is naturally found in skin. They vary with their thickness, viscosity, and longevity. We tend to use finer fillers in areas where your skin is fine and smoothness is critical, like your eye and temple area. The thicker ones can be injected deeper in areas that need more bulk and volume such as your cheeks or jaw line. In Australia, there are several filler brands to consider using. Due to Therapeutic Goods Administration rules, we’re not able to name each of the products we use.
We use dermal filler treatment to help men reduce and slow down the visible signs of ageing. Areas of the face we can treat include:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Deep skin hollows and folds
- Puffy, drooping, and tired eyes
- A downward smile, and
- A receding, shorter chin.
It is important to note that when we use dermal fillers in men, we keep the results natural, subtle and aesthetically pleasing. You can view our before and after pictures of male patients who have had dermal filler treatments here
Cosmetic rejuvenation for men using laser treatments
Our highly trained and experienced Cosmetic Doctors and Cosmetic Nurses can use laser treatments to reverse the effects of sun exposure and to treat various skin conditions including acne scarring. Our laser hair removal treatments are a popular cosmetic rejuvenation procedure to reduce unwanted hair growth and reduce shaving rash. The laser is attracted to the melanin in the hair follicle where it is converted to heat energy that can destroy the stem cell in the hair follicle and prevent its future growth. The skin also takes up part of the laser energy, but it has the ability to lose heat quicker than the hair follicle, and is left intact. As a rule, people with darker hair and lighter skin are easier to treat, as there is a greater differential between the amount of melanin in the skin and hair.
It’s important to note that we do not use IPL (intense pulsed light) as it isn’t specific to hairs and can adversely affect the skin around the treatment area. IPL is not as effective as the laser machines we use because they don’t emit specific wavelengths of light.
Cosmetic rejuvenation for men using Infini
The most superior form of acne scarring treatment we offer is Infini Radio Frequency (RF) needling. Using a unique combination of control micro wounds from the needling and electro thermal heating of the collagen from the RF element lifts, firms and tightens the skin. Infini RF needling addresses acne scarring, reduces oil flow and gives your skin surface improvements in skin texture, tone and pore size. It’s important to note that there is a downtime of up to two weeks with Infini RF acne scarring treatment and a minimum of three treatments is required.
