Ageing of the masculine patient
In comparison with feminine skin, masculine skin is thicker, however, the aggression caused by shaving, and the lack of moisturising and solar protection cause the masculine skin to suffer particularly. This is why we must emphasise that men need to apply treatments for ageing, but also to prevent it. The most demanded treatment by men is botulinum toxin. They also ask for the following procedures: work on the mandibular outline, chin augmentation, elimination of dark circles under the eyes, filling of the nasolabial folds, lip augmentation, hair implants, laser hair removal and elimination of abdominal fat. Expression lines usually start appearing from 35 years of age, on the face, between the eyebrows and the crow’s feet. To create a more relaxed-looking face, we use micro injections of botulinum toxin. For skin treatment, we use hyaluronic acid which is less reticulated, and contains a new formula based on aminoacids, antioxidants and vitamins which are injected into the dermis. This means that the water in the face doesn’t evaporate too fast, there is no loss of hydration and wrinkles are filled, creating smoother skin. Current dermic fillers create excellent results for facial wrinkles, such as cheeks, cheekbones, chin, mandibular arch and dark circles under the eyes. Over the past few years, the fillers that have been used are re-absorbable, therefore, results last up to 12 months and produce an immediate anti-ageing and aesthetic effect.
