Men – Dermal Fillers
Like women, men also experience volume loss in their faces as they age. This is due to the water retaining fibres in our body diminishing over time and thereby creating deep lines, sagging skin and depletion of lips, cheeks and jaw volume. Dermal fillers are used to rehydrate and add volume back by injecting a synthetic form of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring substance found within the human body. Dermal fillers for men, have the ability to rejuvenate and enhance the male facial features with natural looking results.
What are the special advantages of having dermal fillers?
- Fillers can reliably treat wrinkles at depths that other methods can’t
- They are biocompatible and rarely cause reactions
- They are non-invasive compared to surgical solutions
What is involved in the procedure?
The Doctor will determine the areas and extent of treatment and discuss your objectives with you. A treatment plan will then be devised, which sets out how we can use dermal fillers to create the best outcome for you.
To help numb the area, ice is normally used and/or an anaesthetic cream. The product will then be injected with a fine needle into the marked areas. At Utopian, we only use products which contain local anaesthetic, which further eases the discomfort often felt with dermal fillers. The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. Results should appear very soon following treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Possible side effects include swelling, redness, and mild bruising as the inflammation settles down.
How many treatments are necessary?
Treatment frequency varies depending on individual requirements and the type of product used. Our dermal fillers last between 12 to 36 months.
Dermal fillers are not suitable for the following:
People with a known sensitivity to the active ingredients in the desired filler are not suitable, as well as some autoimmune conditions.
