Most Popular Dermal Fillers for Men Back on the Dating Scene

Life is all about first impressions.

While some patients may wear their age well, that isn’t the case for everyone. The appearance of creases and wrinkles can often be a confidence-killer, especially for men getting ready to get back into the dating pool. Luckily, dermal fillers offer patients a fast, discreet solution for reversing some of the more noticeable signs of aging. Learn more about how this innovative treatment strategy works and find the right solution for your aesthetic needs by scheduling a consultation with Indian Wells cosmetic specialist Dr. Cosgrove today.

Why More Men Are Considering Dermal Fillers

A recent article from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons highlighted that cosmetic procedures ranging from liposuction to Botox® were on the rise for men and women over 55. According to the article, this correlates with another growing statistic – the number of newly-single baby boomers getting ready to head back into the dating scene. 

New apps and websites have made it easier for men and women of a certain age to ease themselves back into the dating pool.  While women have long turned to cosmetic procedures like dermal fillers and Botox® to refresh their appearance, men pursuing cosmetic treatments has been more taboo. Lengthy treatment time and long or noticeable recovery as well as fears of looking too young have been long-held concerns for countless men and have kept many from pursuing treatments that could otherwise reduce their feelings of looking prematurely old. 

Over the last several years, the use of dermal fillers has skyrocketed among male patients ready to put their best appearance forward – for several key reasons. For starters, these treatments offer men a discreet way to tackle one of the most common effects of aging – wrinkles. By using hyaluronic acid, most leading injectable fillers can restore much-needed volume in areas where collagen production and external damage have left skin wrinkled and loose. 

Another advantage is that the treatment technique is done quickly and allows patients to return to their daily activities right away. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, dermal fillers do not require incisions or recovery. When conducted by a skilled practitioner, the application of dermal fillers is highly tailored to the unique characteristics and goals of each patient.  With dermal fillers, patients don’t need to worry about looking over-treated. Instead, subtle differences create a more refreshed, youthful appearance.

Choosing the Right Dermal Filler

As with any other procedure, selecting the best dermal filler for your face is a process. For men, dermal fillers can help create a refreshed, more masculine look. As men tend to have thicker skin than women, the best dermal fillers for men are more viscous. Some examples of these top dermal filler formulas for men include:

  • Juvéderm® Voluma: Ideal for adding volume to the cheeks and mid-face
  • Juvéderm® Vollure: Recommended for nasolabial folds
  • Bellafill: A collagen-based injectable perfect for filling wrinkles and acne scarring across the face

While not a dermal filler, Kybella® is another non-invasive cosmetic treatment that has become popular among men looking to rejuvenate their appearance. Kybella® is the first FDA-approved nonsurgical option for treating submental fullness – better known as a double chin. Where other dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to help build volume, Kybella® uses the deoxycholic acid to permanently eliminate unwanted fat cells and add definition to facial features.
