For Men

Treatment of Deep Wrinkles

A greater number of men are seeking improvements to address the signs of aging every day.  At Portica Body & Face we are familiar with the cosmetic issues that face our male clients and have fantastic solutions on hand to address them.

Signs of Aging

One of the issues that occurs with aging is the development of deep creases in the lower face.  This occurs from facial fat loss, bone resorption and collagen loss which begins to occurs as men enter their late 30’s and 40’s.    Some of the first signs of aging can be seen in the smile lines (nasolabial folds), crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), lines coming down from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines), and a hollowness in the lateral cheek.

Facial Fillers for Men

The lines and deep wrinkles that develop with aging can be immediately and dramatically improved with the quick and painless injection of dermal fillers.   Dermal Fillers are substances that are injected under the wrinkle to immediately push it out and diminish the wrinkle.

What is it like to undergo injection of dermal fillers?

The process is very easy and quick.  It is done in a brief office visit and is associated with no down time.  You can return immediately back to work after the injections.  Patients who are typically apprehensive about procedures with needles do very well with Dr. Allens techniques and are surprised at how easy and painless the procedure is.

Are there different fillers and how do I know which one to choose?

There are various types of dermal fillers that can be used to treat facial wrinkles each with unique properties.  The skin of men is generally thicker then that of women, so Dr. Allen uses the thicker dermal fillers for her male clients to create a more full correction of the deep wrinkle.  Dr. Allen will consult with you to evaluate your facial structure, iscuss your goals and help select a filler that will best meet your needs.

How long do the effects last?

The effects of the injections last for varying amounts of time depending on which filler was used.  In most cases for her male clients Dr. Allen uses fillers that last for several years.  She finds her male patients prefer to have a treatment that lasts a significant amount of time so that they do not need to return often for repeat treatments.
