Dermal Fillers for Men

Dermal filler options for men in san Antonio

Men are seeking customized options for facial volumization more today than ever. Dermal fillers may be the answer for men with deep tear troughs which cause the tired look. A small amount of Restylane® may be the answer for improving the deep tear trough. Chin augmentation using either Restylane or Radiesse® can help define the chin or jawline in men without the need to undergo surgery. Improvement in the melolabial fold and cheek can also be made by using Restylane Defyne® or Sculptra® for full-face volumization. If sunken temples or cheeks are a problem, Restylane Lyft or Radiesse can improve these concave areas and give the patient a modest lift to the face. Bellafill can be used to diminish acne scarring.

There are dermal fillers that are more supportive for men. Trust your face to facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jose Barrera and visit us at our Modern Male Aesthetic MedSpa today!

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid (also referred to as “HA”) is a natural substance (complex sugar) found in all living organisms. It hydrates the skin by holding in water, and acts as a cushion and lubricant to reduce damage to the skin. These properties make it a popular lip filler and can also add volume beneath the eyes as an under eye filler. HA is found in connective tissue throughout the body, including the dermis of the skin. Many dermal fillers are hyaluronic acids, including Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Voluma, and Belotero.

To maintain its presence in the tissue, the HA is cross-linked by various techniques. It is an important component of youthful, supple, and elastic skin, and helps to maintain skin volume. As we age, our skin loses HA, contributing to the formation of wrinkles. The incidence of complications with HA is low, and the treatment of complications is relatively straightforward with the use of hyaluronidase. In many ways, HAs are the ideal filler.

Dermal fillers add volume to help restore youthful contours, so you’ll see results immediately following your treatment. They can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. These include the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines), the area just below the nose and above the upper lip, the corners of the mouth, and “marionette lines.” Marionette lines are the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline. Dr. Barrera provides dermal fillers at his San Antonio facial plastic surgery practice.
