Men Are Included
Men are more aware of their appearance than ever, wanting to look as good as their regimens of healthy diet and exercise help them feel. In an effort to stay in the game, more men are turning to treatments and procedures that help turn back visible signs of aging as reported by Medical Spa.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), men accounted for nearly 10 percent of cosmetic procedures in 2013, but males comprise 30 percent of the patient population at the Baumann Cosmetic & Research Institute (Miami). With the recent FDA approval of Voluma, BCRI’s founder expects this number to rise.
Voluma is a dermal filler made of a naturally occurring sugar called hyaluronic acid. This injectable has specific benefits for male patients. Because Voluma can last for 18 to 24 months it is a great option for people, like men, who want to look natural and can’t afford to be bruised every nine months. Voluma allows you to have the injection on a Thursday, take Friday off and be back to work on Monday without anyone knowing you did anything.
With age, the face loses its natural fat, and this is most obvious in runners and those with low body fat percentages. Men often develop a horizontal line under the eye that is caused by the loss of this facial fat. By putting Voluma in the mid-face it can take decades off a man’s appearance, and when done properly, it’s undetectable.
Injecting Voluma requires special training, as well as an understanding of aesthetics like facial symmetry and bone structure.
