Male cosmetic treatments have increased in popularity exponentially over the last few years. New treatments such as nose, jawline and chin filler along with treatments for hyperhidrosis and more traditional treatments such as botulinum treatments for the upper face can manipulate a face to look either more masculine or more feminine depending on the patient’s desired outcome.
Along with the rise of social media, cosmetic procedures have become more mainstream. With this change, more men have opted for cosmetic treatments in order to achieve a more clasically masculine appaearance.
A masculine face is often characterised by a strong, chisled jawline and chin as well as a slightly bigger and stronger nose compared to a woman. Youthful, smooth skin is universally attractive in both men and women.
Thanks to the development of treatments and techniques now available for both dermal fillers and botulinum toxin type A, cosmetic treatments can be made to look subtle and natural whilst transforming the face.
Dr. Zack Ally, Derma Medical’s CEO and celebrity cosmetic doctor said that he has noticed ‘more and more men booking appointments for cosmetic botulinum toxin and dermal filler treatments in the clinic over the last few years.’
Derma Medical have also noticed a significant rise in the number of male delegates that we enrol and train on our courses.
Without a doubt the most popular cosmetic injectable treatments for men are chin and jawline filler. These treatments are a great option for men to achieve a more balanced profile and is perfect for those who are looking to achieve a more chiselled and masculine appearance which is synonymous with the alpha male as showcased by Zac Efron and Chris Hemsworth. The male appearance is characterised by a strong and defined jawline that is wider than that of a woman’s.
A sharp mandibular angle and jaw can be created using a microcannula and high density dermal filler. For men who have a naturally weak jawline, this treatment can make all the difference to the appearance of their face.
These procedures generally last between 9 and 12 months, and are taught on our Advanced Masterclass in Facial Contouring.
Smooth and youthful skin is always attractive in both men and women. Men in particular tend to focus on the frown lines and forehead lines, whereas women often also include crowsfeet with this treatment too. Botulinum toxin type A treatments for men has famously been nicknamed ‘brotox’ since they have increased in popularity over the past 10 years.
Botulinum toxin works by relaxing the muscles in the area that it is injected. Reducing the strength of these muscles helps minise the contractions and thus smooth the lines.
Studies suggest that looking younger, healthier and more energetic can enhance your career prospects, particularly in industries such as marketing and advertising where image is important.
In fact, the number of men getting anti-wrinkle injections has increased 258% over the past decade with celebrities such as Peter Andre and Jared Leto and Johnny Depp rumoured to have had anti-wrinkle injections to help maintain their smooth looking skin.
Different quantities of botulinum toxin type A can offer differing levels of ability to move the muscle after the treatment. Some people prefer a ‘frozen’ look, whilst others opt for a more subtle result allowing them to still show expression. A good practitioner will listen to your desired results and treat you accordingly.
Medical professionals can learn to administer these treatments on our foundation botulinum toxin and dermal fillers course.
Due to the prominent location of a person’s nose, the shape can instantly make the person appear more masculine or feminine. Masculine noses are straight, refined, and proportional to the rest of the face. Masculine noses are slightly larger than women’s, but not by too much. A natural looking result is especially important for men, as the more refined it becomes, the more feminine it looks.
Nose filler treatments are incredibly impressive and can completely change the persons facial appearance.
Clever techniques using high density dermal filler can be injected periosteally above the rhinion, intracolumellar or through the infratip lobule to create a desired result that can match a surgical rhinoplasty, sometimes making the nose appear smaller.
A well proportioned nose can immediately create a more masculine appearance. A great doctor will asess your whole face and tailor the techniques used to create the perfect shape for you as an individual.
Nose filler treatments are trained during our Advanced Masterclass in Facial Contouring.
Although sweating is a perfectly normal and healthy bodily function for most people, some people suffer from an excessive amount of sweat that goes over and beyond what is neccesary to maintain normal body temerature. This affects around 1% of the population.
Studies have shown that men tend to sweat more than women, and so botulinum toxin type A treatments can be a great option for men who produce an excessive amount of sweat, also known as hyperhidrosis.
Axillary injections of botulinum toxin block the nerve controls and can help to reduce sweating in this area by up to 95%.
This treatment is currently only licensed for under arm hyperhidrosis, but it can also be administered to the hands and feet by an experienced practitioner. Results from this
treatment last around 9 months and the procedure is virtually painless.
For men and women who suffer from hyperhidrosis, this treatment can be the miracle cure that they have been looking for. Axillary botulinum toxin injections for hyperhidrosis are available on the NHS but due to cuts in funding, the patient may be subjected to long waiting lists so may opt to undergo this procedure pirvately.
Derma Medical train hyperhidrosis treatments on our advanced botulinum toxin and dermal fillers course.
