Wrinkle fillers are readily available through your favorite West Hollywood skin clinic, and while they’re traditionally associated with women, they work just as well if not better on men! The males of the species have bigger bone structures, meaning it’s more noticeable when they lose facial volume. Men are also prime candidates for dermal fillers because they have thicker skin and therefore greater tolerance for the needles used to inject said fillers.
Let’s review some of the dermal fillers renowned for their ability to restore volume and smooth wrinkles on the faces of male candidates:
The hyaluronic acid filler instantly restores facial volume. It smoothes wrinkles and facial folds, such as the nasolabial folds that start at the bottom of the nose and create the dreaded “parentheses” look. Juvederm is celebrated for creating a smooth, natural look and feel that lasts six months or more.
Restylane is another hyaluronic acid filler that treats moderate to severe wrinkles and facial folds. As with Juvederm, results are instantaneous. Restylane is free from animal proteins and features the most significant concentration of hyaluronic acid out of all available dermal fillers. It lasts about six months.
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic filler that gradually replaces lost collagen to correct mild to deep facial folds and wrinkles. It works deep within the dermis, and requires several injections over a three-month period to create desired results. Because Sculptra restores lost volume and corrects wrinkles over time, it creates a more subtle effect many enjoy. It also lasts up to two years.
Radiesse consists of calcium-based microspheres and gel that work in conjunction to volumize and lift. It works as a skin scaffold that stimulates natural collagen production for several months. Results are instant, but continue to improve due to this stimulation. Radiesse subsequently lasts a year or longer.
The West Hollywood skin specialists at The Kopelson Clinic will easily determine what treatment is best for male patients, whether it’s simply a dermal filler or a filler and another treatment, such as laser resurfacing or microdermabrasion.
