What Can Men Expect During Their Recovery from Dermal Fillers?

Men of all ages are discovering the many benefits of dermal fillers: These versatile compounds can be used to fill in distracting creases, amplify facial volume, and contour specific facial features. Many guys are using dermal fillers to create a more defined jawline or more prominent cheeks without surgery. Some fillers, like Juvéderm® Voluma, can actually emulate a mid-face lift. Juvéderm® Voluma raises and fills the cheeks, tightening loose skin in the process and restoring a youthful yet masculine look.

One of the primary advantages of this type of treatment is its lack of downtime; recovering from filler injections is relatively easy and doesn’t require bed rest. Still, this shouldn’t be taken to mean that fillers have absolutely no side effects. If you’re interested in trying Juvéderm®, you should learn what to expect ahead of time in order to ensure a comfortable post-procedure experience.

Recovering from Dermal Filler Treatment

In some ways, men have an easier time than women when recovering from injectable treatments. Men don’t bruise as easily as women do, and because they have thicker skin and larger facial muscles, they often require less filler. This naturally limits the two main side effects of dermal fillers: Bruising and swelling around the injection sites.

Fillers are the closet treatment to a magic wand. Usually there are no side effects, but mild bruising is possible. Patients can return to work right away. If for some reason you were unhappy with the results it is completely reversible.

Dynamic Duos: 3 Cosmetic Combinations that Are Better Together

Whether you’re a fan of peanut butter and jelly, cookies and milk, or wine and chocolate, we’ve all got our favorite powerhouse combo. Each half of these dynamic duos is wonderful on its own, but when combined, the results are even better. Like those classic food combos you know and love, we’ve got a few combos you might not be as familiar with, but the results are just as impressive. Call us today and book one of these beautifying duos today.

Tummy Tuck + Thigh Lipo

Do you dread wearing a swimsuit? Transform your mid-section and below for a stunning new shape that will leave you looking for reasons to head to the pool. A tummy tuck smooths and tightens the abdominal area, which for many is a dream come true, but when combined with thigh lipo, the transformation is even more astounding. A tummy tuck on its own only changes the abdominal area, but when you add liposuction, we can contour and reshape the whole area. Women especially love this combo after childbirth (because we all know, having babies changes your entire body, not just your tummy).

BOTOX® + Fillers

BOTOX® is the most popular cosmetic treatment by a long shot. If you love it on its own, try pairing it with dermal fillers. When combined, these injectable treatments can rejuvenate and revitalize your entire face. BOTOX® is an excellent choice for smoothing out and relaxing wrinkles caused by muscle activity (great for crow’s feet, lines between the brow, etc.) while dermal fillers can restore lost volume, treat lines and wrinkles not caused by muscle activity, and even fill thinning lips. It’s like a miniature face transformation without the surgery. Best of all, this combo is perfect for busy men and women. Both treatments take just a few minutes with no downtime required.

Breast Augmentation + Breast Lift

If you’re dreaming of bigger, perkier breasts, you aren’t just dreaming of implants. For many women with breast sagging, the breasts of their dreams require both a lift and an implant. Breast augmentation can increase your size while a breast lift can reshape the breasts and reposition them. For a complete breast transformation, pair these two procedures together. These two treatments are easily done at the same time for many women.
