In recent years, the beauty and skincare industry has witnessed a significant surge in men seeking cosmetic enhancements. Male dermal fillers address signs of ageing and enhancing masculine facial features. Dermal fillers for men have emerged as solution that gives instant results without down time.

The Shifting the Attitude of Male Aesthetics

Traditionally, discussions about cosmetic procedures have primarily been in the domain of women. However, social perceptions are evolving. Men are increasingly embracing the idea of taking proactive steps to maintain a youthful and confident look. They now wish to address concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss in a way that is natural and undetectable. Men also benefit from very subtle rejuvenating lip filler.

Male Dermal Fillers Questions

They are injections made of Hyaluronic Acid used to add volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial contours in the male face.
We inject a gel-like substance made of Hyaluronic Acid into targeted areas. We use it to restore lost volume, soften lines and wrinkles, and create a more youthful appearance. Loss of volume is the most important use of fillers for men. With age, men lose volume from key areas such as cheeks, temples and most importantly for men, the jawline. Fillers can also be used to enhance and week jawline and chin with fantastic results.
We can treat various areas of the face, including the cheeks, jawline, chin, temples, and under-eye hollows. We can treat these areas to both enhance and correct. We would use filler to enhance areas such as cheekbones, jawline and chin to give them a more masculine and chiselled look. Other areas such as under the eyes and temples are only touched if they need correcting.
Restoration of facial volume, reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, enhancement of facial contours, and improvement in overall facial appearance. When this is done in a natural way, the results can enhance a man's self esteem. Having a well balanced face that looks healthy and rested is a wonderful ego boost.
Fillers last different amounts based on the area of the filler and how active the person is. Temple filler lasts roughly 24 months before needing a top up. Cheeks will need a top up after 6 to 8 months. Chins and Jawline will need a top up after roughly 12 months. Under eye filler can last for a 2 years or longer. A top up does not mean that all of the filler is gone, it means that we need to replace a little bit that you will have metabolised over time. People that exercise a lot will metabolise their filler faster. Generally, we like to see our patients every 6 to 8 months to top up the work and keep it looking fresh.
Top ups is maintenance work that should be done every 6 to 10 months. A top up does not use the same amount of filler than when we first did the treatment. During your top up we look at your face and put back minute quantities of filler for a re fresh. Top ups are important to keep your face looking fresh. Filler top ups can be a double edged sword. Many practitioners over fill at top ups (Filler is sold by the ML, per syringe) in order to be able to charge more. Top ups need to be subtle and only replace what has gone from the first treatment. If you consider that fillers will need roughly 2 years to fully be absorbed, you can see that you will never need the same amount as the first treatment for your bi annual or annual top ups. Less is more.
Fillers are generally considered safe when administered by a qualified and experienced professional. However, like any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and side effects, including bruising, swelling, infection, and allergic reactions. Vascular Occlusion happens to even the most experienced of practitioners. Although rare, an experienced practitioner should know how to clear a vascular occlusion should it happen. No one has vast experience clearing vascular occlusions because they are rare and precautions are taken with every procedure done to avoid them. Ask about vascular occlusions. What the process is to clear them.
The recovery time after getting dermal fillers for men is minimal for most patients. Some bruising, or redness at the injection sites may occur but usually resolves within a few days. Swelling can also happen but its usually mild and not noticeable. You can also be tender for a couple of days after the treatment. Patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.
Our price is £200 per ml/syringe. We do have a filler offer for first time clients which make it a lot more affordable to get the work that you need.
Before getting dermal fillers, men should consider factors such as their aesthetic goals, the qualifications and experience of the injector, potential risks and side effects, and the expected duration of results. It's essential to have a thorough consultation with a qualified practitioner to discuss these considerations and develop a treatment plan tailored to individual needs. For the consultation to be successful, it is important for you to be very clear about your aesthetic goals. We need to know what it is that you desire in order to make that happen. However, during the consultation you may be told that to get your desired result you may need a different procedure to what you thought. This is common when people want filler under the eye to look more rested but in fact they need cheek filler to get the correct look.
Men can typically see immediate results after getting dermal fillers. Optimal results become apparent within a few days as any swelling subsides and the filler settles into place. if a more pronounced jawline is desired, we may need to do this over a couple of treatments. If this is the case, we ask that you return after 3 weeks to continue the treatment. Spacing out the treatments is not only safer but also socially more subtle.
Yes, men can undergo dermal filler treatments even if they have facial hair. The filler can be injected beneath the skin's surface, avoiding interference with facial hair growth. However, depending on the length of the beard, it makes it difficult to see where the filler is going. It's like working blind and it is a real skill to have. I do ask for the beard to be trimmed as much as possible so that I have a good view as to where I'm injecting. The other issue that no one talks about is that should there be a vascular occlusion, it would be very difficult to catch under a long beard. Meaning that for safety reasons a shorter beard is preferred during the treatment. Vascular occlusions are very rare but they do happen so we all need to be aware of this.
We use hyaluronic acid-based fillers. These filler are stable yet easy to maneuver into place and have an extremely low incident of allergies. They are also easily dissolvable should we need to.
We don't treat anyone under 18. Whilst the motivations are generally different the answer is YES. Fillers are suitable for all ages. A man approaching 40 and above may just want to feel more confident and look rested. I call it looking a good version of your age. A younger man may want a more defined chin and jawline. Also supporting his overall confidence. Which ever the reason or age, fillers are a great way to look good and feel good.
Yes, in fact often it smoothes out the result of face lifts. We also use them with lasers, scar treatments and general upkeep of the skin.
The consultation process for dermal fillers typically takes around 30 minutes to an hour. We will assess the patient's facial anatomy, discuss treatment goals, explain the procedure and potential risks, and develop a treatment plan.
The main factor affect the longevity of dermal fillers for men is the amount of exercise, specially cardio that a person does. A higher metabolism really contributes to faster metabolising of the fillers. Other factors include the type of filler used, the treatment area, individual metabolism, lifestyle factors (such as smoking or sun exposure), and the expertise of the injector.
We use fillers made from hyaluronic acid. They are reversible using an enzyme called hyaluronidase. This enzyme can break down the filler and reverse its effects if necessary. We tend to do this when we get in a client who is not extremely comfortable with work that they've had elsewhere. A little tweeking can go a long way.
During the dermal filler procedure, men can expect the injector to clean the treatment area, apply a numbing cream or local anaesthetic if desired, and carefully inject the filler into specific areas of the face using a fine needle or cannula. Results are instant
Yes, dermal fillers can be used to improve the appearance of acne scars in men by filling in depressions or uneven areas of the skin, resulting in a smoother texture and more even complexion.
The duration of results from dermal fillers for men in the lips can vary depending on factors such as the type of filler used and individual metabolism. Typically, results in the lips last between 6 to 18 months.
Yes, men with sensitive skin can still receive dermal filler injections. However, it's essential to discuss any concerns or potential reactions with the practitioner during the consultation process.
After getting dermal fillers, men may be advised to avoid excessive sun exposure, smoking, or alcohol consumption, as these factors can affect the longevity and effectiveness of the treatment. It's also important to follow any post-treatment care instructions provided by the practitioner.
Yes, dermal fillers can be used to address under-eye hollows or dark circles in men. Tear trough filler works by adding volume to the area, reducing the appearance of shadows and creating a more refreshed and youthful look. The consultation is very important for this kind of filler because often, what is needed is cheek filler instead.
Fillers are suitable for various skin types, including dry, oily, combination, and sensitive skin. However, it's essential to discuss any skin concerns or conditions with the practitioner during the consultation to ensure the most suitable filler type and treatment approach.
Men with a history of allergies can still undergo dermal filler treatments, but it's crucial to inform the practitioner about any known allergies during the consultation. This information allows the practitioner to select the most appropriate filler type and minimise the risk of allergic reactions. Even taking these steps, there is no guarantee that no allergies will happen. We have ways of testing for allergies if a person has a history of such.
Men can typically resume light exercise immediately after getting dermal fillers. However, it's advisable to avoid strenuous activities, such as heavy lifting or intense workouts, for the first 48 hours to minimise the risk of swelling or bruising.
Yes, We can add volume to areas that may be lacking or asymmetrical, such as the cheeks, chin, or jawline. Fillers can also be used in cases where there has been facial paralysis or scars. It gives instant results.
Yes, dermal fillers can be used to improve the appearance of scars in men by filling in depressions or uneven areas of the skin.
You can consume alcohol in moderation immediately after getting dermal fillers. However, excessive alcohol consumption may increase the risk of swelling or bruising, so it's advisable to limit alcohol intake for the first 48 hours after the treatment.
You can shave immediately after the treatment. You may need to be gentle the first couple of days until the swelling settles.
Yes they can. Lip filler in men needs to be done very tastefully and the treatment goals need to be very clear in order to not overfill. Lip filler does have swelling which may be problematic so it needs to be done with social life in mind.
That would depend on what area you are looking to treat. As a general rule of thumb, this is how much we use (may vary per individual): 1ml : Chin, Lips and Under Eyes 2ml: Temples 3ml: Cheeks and cheek bones, Jawline
The results that we get from filler can be natural but dramatic. Depending on how much you have and your budget, the results can be a liquid face lift. It's not unusual for a gentleman to look 5 years younger instantly.
Fillers dissolve over time and this will mean that the positive effects will go. Also, you will be 2 to 3 years older than when the treatment was done and that may show as the patient has aged during that time.
Achieving a natural look with filler is not so much about the brand of the filler (manufacturers try to make you believe that it is) but about the artistry of the injector. We only do natural fillers and turn away people that want a more trendy overfilled look. We are not the right clinic for overfilled lips etc.

Common Areas of Concern for Men

Men often seek dermal filler treatments to address specific concerns associated with ageing and facial aesthetics. Some common areas for treatment include:

  1. Nasolabial Folds: Also known as smile lines or laugh lines. These creases can be softened with dermal fillers, restoring a more youthful appearance. However, this could be a cheek problem. Lorena will discuss this during your consultation.
  2. Cheek Augmentation: Dermal fillers can add volume to the mid-face region, enhancing cheekbones and providing a more defined facial structure. If you want to start your dermal filler journey slowly, this is where you start.
  3. Under-Eye (Tear Through): Men, like women, may experience hollows, bags or dark circles under the eyes. Male dermal fillers can be strategically injected to reduce the appearance of tiredness and restore a refreshed look.

PDO Threads and fat dissolving injections can sometimes compliment fillers. A combination of treatments is specially useful to achieve a non surgical facelift. Her approach is to work on the face using different techniques. This way you will need the least amount of fillers possible. The less filler used to achieve her goal the more natural the result will be. Lorena likes to do her work over several weeks.
