In the years since dermal fillers first entered the cosmetic industry, the non-invasive procedure has become synonymous with facial rejuvenation. While these and other types of anti-aging procedures have traditionally been more popular among women, these once traditional trends are changing. Innovations in plastic surgery and non-invasive cosmetic treatments have made it easier for patients to discreetly erase the telltale signs of aging from their appearance. As a result, recent years have seen more men visiting cosmetic specialists like Dr. Kato to explore their options for discreet treatments that make them look younger. One of the solutions our Palm Springs doctor has found most successful is dermal fillers.
Where Men Show Aging
The symptoms of aging are indiscriminate, eventually affecting every person’s appearance. However, the way in which men and women display signs such as wrinkles and sagging skin differs tremendously. According to a study from the International Dermal Institute, testosterone levels help thicken men’s skin. Furthermore, while men also experience collagen loss, they have greater collagen density.
While these bonuses may help men put off wrinkles longer than women, men are also less likely to take preventive care of their skin. Years of sun exposure, habits like smoking and drinking, and other factors can all age skin and cause men to develop deep wrinkles across their forehead. Decreasing collagen production can also cause hollows to develop around the eyes, leading to unwanted sagging skin or dark circles below the eyes. While men may generally miss out on getting wrinkles around the mouth, an unhealthy diet, poor sleep schedule, and missing skincare routine can exacerbate new lines and cause men to look as though they’ve aged overnight.
Why Men are Choosing Dermal Fillers
It’s hard to put the breaks on aging once it starts. While previous generations of men may have simply toughed out the aging process, more men are coming to realize that cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers are an excellent solution to controlling the aging process.
Unlike other facial rejuvenation treatments, dermal fillers are highly targeted and very discreet. Treatment time is usually less than 20 minutes and there is no downtime associated with dermal fillers, making it simple for patients to schedule an appointment during lunch or on their way home. Many of today’s leading dermal filler brands also use naturally occurring hyaluronic acid to improve volume in areas with diminished collagen density. This unique compound helps skin cells attract and retain moisture in the weeks after the filler has been injected, allowing patients to enjoy results that continue to improve. Finally, injectable fillers are highly personalized to address wrinkles that develop in specific areas across the face while still maintaining a natural look.
