More and more men these days are investing time and money into aesthetic treatments. As technology continues to advance, common cosmetic concerns are able to be addressed with minimally-invasive procedures. That means guys with busy lifestyles can correct bothersome wrinkles without the pain, side effects, scarring, or downtime associated with surgery.
A younger, healthier-looking your is a more confident you. At Tenley K. Lawton M.D., we offer a variety of non-surgical solutions for correcting problematic lines and wrinkles which make us look years older than we actually are. Let’s take a closer look at a couple of our favorite anti-aging injectables for guys. Depending on the location and severity of your concerns, one treatment may be more beneficial than another.
Juvéderm® Dermal Fillers
Juvéderm® is a popular line of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. There are a variety of unique formulas that can tackle just about anything from fine lines to severe facial folds on the lower face. Once injected, skin becomes instantly plump, and wrinkles become noticeably smoothed. Juvéderm® fillers are lidocaine-enhanced to ensure the injection procedure is as comfortable as possible. There is no downtime needed for treatment and patients can enjoy instant, long-lasting results for upwards of 1-year.
Botox Cosmetics for Men
Botox remains one of the most popular injectables on the market. Both men and women love the natural, well-rested look that Botox produces. The procedure is traditionally done to correct wrinkles on the upper face such as between the brows and crow’s feet. However, many use it to tame lines throughout the face and neck. Rather than simply filling in lines, wrinkles, and folds, botulinum toxin ‘paralyzes’ muscles by stopping the brain’s communication to nerve endings. Full results from your Botox treatment may take several weeks to become evident and typically last 3-4 months.
