Restylane for Men
Facial fillers in men can be very effective in reversing early gravitational aging in the face and in achieving a natural result with little to no downtime. It is critical to understand the male facial anatomy to achieve a result that is balanced and does not feminize the male face.
In addition to Botox, facial wrinkle fillers have demonstrated great promise in nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. In the past, fillers were primarily collagen-based products which required skin testing and could be associated with allergic reactions. In the past few years, newer more sophisticated products have become available which are better tolerated, last longer, and feel more natural. Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most popular fillers in use today.
These fillers are made of a gelatinous substance, hyaluronic acid (HA), which is found around the cells in the body. Restylane is one of the most popular hyaluronic acids fillers and was the original HA. Restylane can be injected into deeper facial lines such as the deep lines around the mouth: nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Restylane can also be used for lip augmentation. Recent formulations of Restylane have improved longevity (up to 12 months) and contain lidocaine to make the treatment more comfortable.
