Injectable fillers are a quick, convenient option to treat bothersome wrinkles and restore volume to thinning facial features. Learn more about how dermal fillers can help you look more refined and better rested with no downtime.
Most men are not too bothered by wrinkles; in fact, a few well-placed lines can give a more distinguished appearance to your face. However, men are not immune to the aging process, and when facial tissues lose youthful volume, a few lines can turn into many, causing a haggard appearance. If you look in the mirror and see a tired, stressed-out face looking back at you, dermal filler injections may help.
Dermal fillers are gel-like products that an experienced plastic surgeon or other qualified medical professional can inject beneath the skin’s surface to smooth furrows, minimize wrinkles, or restore volume to aging features. The rejuvenating effects are immediate, no downtime is required, and results last 6 to 12 months or longer. Dr. Thors and our experienced professionals customize treatment to achieve subtle, naturally appealing results.
Fillers can be used to treat wrinkles, enhance your profile, and refresh your overall appearance. Just a few improvements we can make using dermal fillers:
Dr. Thors offers a variety of options in dermal fillers, and will help you choose the best product for your needs and goals.
Juvéderm fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in your skin and contributes to healthy skin cell volume. With several different formulas designed to address facial volume loss, fine lines, and deeper folds, Juvéderm fillers can be a great option for any man to refine his appearance and look better rested in a matter of minutes.
If you, like many men, would rather keep your cosmetic treatments under the radar, then Sculptra injections may be perfect for you. Sculptra is made from Poly-L-acetic acid, a substance that triggers accelerated collagen production in your own skin, so your results come in gradually over the course of 2 to 3 treatments, and last for up to 2 years thereafter. We’ll often recommend Sculptra injections to help a man soften nasolabial folds or other moderate to severe facial lines.
Dermal filler injections can be done during a quick, 15 to 30 minute appointment at Dr. Thors’ practice in Algonquin. After confirming your treatment goals, Dr. Thors or our licensed, registered nurse will give you a topical numbing agent to keep you comfortable during treatment. Using a very thin needle, your provider will inject your desired filler product into specific areas of your face, massaging the product in to achieve optimal results.
Following treatment, you can resume your normal activities immediately. Side effects are usually mild and temporary, including slight redness, bruising or swelling at the injection site. Within one to two weeks, these effects will be gone.
