Breaking Barriers with Facial Aesthetic Treatments for Men

In recent years, the facial aesthetics industry has witnessed a remarkable transformation. Facial aesthetic treatments, which were once primarily associated with women, have become increasingly popular among men. Men of all ages are now embracing these treatments to enhance their facial features, boost self-confidence, and maintain a youthful appearance. In this blog post, I will introduce myself to you all and we'll explore several facial aesthetic treatments tailored for men, including anti-wrinkle injections, jawline filler, chin filler, cheek filler, and tear trough filler. We'll also discuss why it is crucial for men to feel comfortable seeking these treatments, which were historically considered female-centric.

A bit about me!

Hi, my name is Ali, and I am a doctor currently working in Orthopaedic surgery in Surrey. After growing up just outside Portsmouth, I moved to Guildford where I studied for 4 years at the University of Surrey. Here I achieved a 1st Class BSc Honours degree in Biomedical Science and a Distinction in my MSc Human Nutrition. I then moved up to the West Midlands where I studied graduate entry medicine for 4 years at Warwick University. After qualifying as a Doctor, I moved down to Reigate where I work full time in the NHS. I am currently living just south of Guildford and split my time between working for the NHS and working as an advanced Cosmetic Injector for my own business and multiple salons across Surrey and Hampshire. One of the sole reasons I began a career in aesthetics was to help address some of the stigma surrounding men’s aesthetic treatments. This industry is made up of around 75% women, and 25% men. We are moving in the right direction but there is still a lot to achieve. This is why I am beyond excited to be joining the team at Diligents, where will offer a safe space for all men seeking aesthetic treatments. At Diligents, we will be offering a vast number of cosmetic treatments, some of which I will introduce below.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections, derived from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum, are a non-surgical solution to combat fine lines and wrinkles. These injections work by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for facial expressions, such as frowning or squinting. Men opt for anti-wrinkle injections to maintain a more youthful and refreshed look. This treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of multiple expression patterns, including crow's feet, forehead lines, and lines between the eyebrows.

Why It's Important for Men: As society becomes more inclusive, men are increasingly aware that their appearance plays a vital role in their personal and professional lives. Anti-wrinkle injections help men project a rejuvenated and confident image.

Jawline Filler

A strong, chiselled jawline is a symbol of masculinity and attractiveness. However, genetics or age-related changes can affect the jawline's definition. Jawline filler, which involves injecting dermal fillers to enhance the jaw's contour, can provide a sharper, more sculpted appearance.
Why It's Important for Men: A well-defined jawline can greatly enhance a man's facial aesthetics, and feeling confident in their appearance is important for anyone, regardless of gender.

Chin Filler

A prominent chin is a key feature that can significantly impact the overall balance of a man's face. Chin filler treatments involve injecting dermal fillers to augment the chin, making it appear squarer rather than rounded.

Why It's Important for Men: A strong chin is often associated with confidence and authority. Chin filler treatments can help men feel more confident and exude a commanding presence.

Cheek Filler

High, defined cheekbones are a sought-after feature in the world of beauty. Cheek filler treatments enhance the volume and definition of the cheekbones, creating a more youthful and attractive appearance.

Why It's Important for Men: Well-defined cheekbones can add structure to a man's face, providing a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing look.

Tear Trough Filler

Dark circles and hollows under the eyes can make anyone appear tired or older than their actual age. Tear trough filler treatments involve injecting dermal fillers to improve the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of dark circles and hollows.

Why It's Important for Men: Looking well-rested and rejuvenated is important for men as it can positively impact their personal and professional lives. Tear trough filler treatments can help men achieve a fresher appearance.

Addressing The Stigma

Addressing the stigma surrounding men having facial aesthetic treatments is an essential step towards promoting inclusivity and self-expression. It is crucial to recognize that these treatments are not about conforming to a particular standard of beauty but rather empowering individuals, regardless of their gender, to make choices that boost their confidence and well-being. By openly discussing and normalizing men's engagement with such treatments, we can challenge outdated gender stereotypes and encourage a more accepting and inclusive society. It's a testament to the evolving definition of masculinity, where self-care and personal enhancement are celebrated as a sign of self-confidence and self-assuredness.

The End

To conclude, the world of facial aesthetic treatments has expanded its horizons to cater to both men and women. The availability of treatments like anti-wrinkle injections, jawline filler, chin filler, cheek filler, and tear trough filler offer men a range of options to enhance their features, boost their self-esteem, and look and feel their best. Embracing these treatments is a step towards breaking down gender stereotypes and celebrating the diverse ways in which individuals can express their unique beauty.

I cannot wait to meet you all and get started at Diligents. See you at the launch event!
