Male Non-Surgical Treatments
Men can achieve a nice reversal of the aging process with nonsurgical procedures. The simplest is the treatment of the deep lines of the forehead and around the eyes with placement of neuromodulators. Also with aging, men will lose facial volume and develop a hollow, weathered appearance. Through the use of facial volumizers these concerns are now reversed and dramatically improve the appearance without surgery.

Men come in with concerns that people think they look mad or angry.  This is due to the strong muscles between the eyebrows that they activate subconsciously.  This gives a person a mad or angry look.  For this the neuromodulators, i.e., Xeomin, Dysport, Botox,  produce a softening to areas treated, relaxing specific muscle action that creates unwanted facial lines and creates a more youthful appearance.

The facial fillers will add volume to facial areas like the cheeks, lower eyelids, temples and chins restoring or correcting areas for a more strengthened, masculine appearance.  The volumizers are also excellent first steps to see what more permanent products like cheek or chin implants can create.

Very often, the two nonsurgical treatments compliment each other.  It is often recommended to start  with the neuromodulators to soften your look, creating a younger appearance and then after two weeks, re-evaluate the face to determine the need for facial volumizing.

The neuromodulators typically last three to four months with most patients being treated two to three time a year.  The facial fillers last closer to a year with patients doing touchup at 9 to 12 months.
