More and more men are opting for the benefits of Botox and injectable dermal fillers to address the common signs of aging skin. Women have known the secrets of these anti-aging treatments for years, so it makes perfect sense that men would be eager to try them as well. Read on to get the “scoop” on the two types of injectable treatments available.
- Dermal Fillers, such as Radiesse and Juvederm®
Injectable dermal fillers differ from neurotoxins in that they contain a synthetic hyaluronic acid gel, a natural substance found throughout the body, that is a precursor of collagen, the support layer of the skin. Dermal fillers can add volume to the chin and cheek area, treat fine lines and wrinkles, and restore a more youthful, healthy appearance to a man’s face. Treatments can be completed within 30-minutes and require no downtime. Depending on the product and treatment area, the rejuvenating effects of dermal fillers typically last from four months to a year – then your body will naturally metabolize the filler.
- Neurotoxins, such as Botox®
Botox® is an FDA approved, non-surgical procedure for treating wrinkles formed by facial movements in the forehead and between the eyebrows, the “glabellar lines.” Botox® uses a neurotoxin (botulinum type A) to temporarily paralyze facial muscles by blocking nerve receptors. Injections of Botox® prevent muscle movement in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and near the corners of the eyes – the areas that cause that tired, stressed, and angry look. Each session takes about 15 minutes. Most patients return to their normal activities immediately. The effects Botox® last about three to four months in most patients.
Each injectable treatment has unique properties for addressing the specific concerns, severity, or area of your face. To maintain results of both types, periodic repeat injections are advised.
