MEN ARE GETTING BOTOX AND DERMAL FILLERS TOO
Botox & Dermal fillers in London for Men
For years, injectable treatments like Botox and dermal fillers have been a focal point in medical aesthetics, an industry shaped around top-of-the-line beauty regimens and cutting-edge cosmetic treatments. There is however a common misconception that this industry is geared only toward women, which has proven over time to be untrue. In reality, many men care about their appearance just as much as women, and men are seeking aesthetic treatment more than ever before.
Botox For Men:
Since becoming MHRA approved, Botox has remained a high-demand solution for unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. This injectable treatment works by temporarily relaxing muscles in the face, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance. While early on Botox may have been thought to be a treatment for women, more and more men have been enjoying the benefits of Botox. So much so that the term “Brotox” has become widely used among aesthetic treatment facilities near and far. Botox is commonly used among men to reduce the appearance of crows feet, forehead lines, and frown lines, though treatments are tailored individually depending on the preferences of the patient.
It should be noted that men typically require more units than women because of stronger skin and muscle density in the face. Although it is more common in men to still want some movement. It can take up to two weeks for Botox to take full effect and you should keep in mind that there is a chance of bruising for up to two weeks after treatment, but is usually minimal. To get a better idea of how many units you might need or what to expect from this quick treatment, the best thing to do is to schedule a consultation with a Rupesh.
Dermal Fillers vs. Botox for Men
Hyaluronic Acid or HA fillers are the most used dermal fillers on the market. These fillers are metabolised by the body over time and there are several different versions designed to treat specific areas of the face. For men, dermal fillers are commonly used to treat the chin and jawline to achieve a squarer or more “masculine” look. Dermal fillers in London can be used in several other areas of the face to sculpt, balance or add volume, depending on the individual preference of the patient.
Dermal fillers are priced per syringe and like with Botox, the amount needed greatly depends on what area is being treated. Sometimes patients may need several syringes over time (especially for chin and jawline treatment) in order to achieve the desired look. There is a risk of some bruising and swelling after receiving dermal fillers and patients should expect to be fully recovered from treatment within two weeks. Like Botox, dermal fillers should be done by an experienced, injector like Rupesh. Risking injury or unwanted results for less cost or convenience is not worth it.
