You’ve likely noticed those small wrinkles, lines, and/or acne scars starting to show up on your face. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. As men get older, the collagen and elastin fibers in our skin start to break down, leading to these visible signs of aging. While diet, sleep, and skincare can help, sometimes they just aren’t enough. This is where dermal fillers come in. Keep reading to learn all about how dermal fillers work and if they may be right for you.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable gels used to add volume under the skin. The most common fillers are made from hyaluronic acid. This helps re-plump wrinkles and folds, restoring a smoother, more youthful appearance. Fillers can also be used to enhance and define cheeks, jaws, chins, and other facial features. Unlike neurotoxins like BOTOX, which relax muscles to soften lines, fillers actually fill in problem areas by providing structural support under the skin. Over time, they gradually break down and absorb into your body. However, results can last upwards of a year or more.
Are Fillers Just for Women?
Absolutely not! Fillers have become increasingly popular among men in recent years. Many guys use them to fill in wrinkles, lift sagging skin, sharpen jawlines, build bigger chins, straighten noses, and more. You’d be surprised at how many male celebrities and public figures actually use dermal fillers.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
For men, some of the most popular treatment areas include:
- Forehead – Fills brow furrows and frown lines
- Temples – Restores sunken appearance
- Cheeks – Adds fullness and lifts sagging skin
- Jawline – Defines and sharpens the jaw and chin
- Chin – Increases projection for a stronger profile
- Lip Lines – Smooths vertical lines around lips
- Under Eye Hollows – Fills in dark circles and bags
