Our Doctor led injectable team are treating more men every week across our London clinics. Getting rid of frown lines and crows feet, sagging skin and dark eyes are the most popular areas treated. Most men are after subtle changes.

what are fillers?
Fillers are injectables that you can use to do more than just smooth wrinkles. Dermal fillers can be used in a number of areas to fight back against the signs of ageing. Redefining areas you may not be happy with. Dermal fillers are a transparent sterile gel.
A syringe is then used to inject the filler into the skin to providing immediate correction.
what are they made of ?
Most fillers are made up of Hyaluronic acid which is a sugar chain molecule,naturally occurring in your bodies skin and tissue. It attracts and binds water providing the skin with volume and hydration.
It also helps support vital collagen and elastin fibres by allowing for chemical messages between the cells.
How are fillers made?
Fillers are normally manufactured by fermenting and cross linking proteins. This results in a clear, sterile gel for injecting.
Be careful as in the UK there are over 160 brands only a handful of these should be used. This is due to weak regulation, so it is imperative you choose a reputable clinic. Preferably with a nurse or doctor led injectable team using and branded fillers.
Filler brands to trust
As mentioned above you do not want to be injected with a non brand cheap filler. Don’t be afraid to ask your practitioner where they source their filler from.
Not all hyaluronic acids are the same quality. Trusted brands can not be bought or are available over the internet.
Be weary of clinics offering cheap injectables. The biggest cost of performing treatment is made up the the filler itself and the injectors time. The most popular brands are:
- Juvederm™ (FDA 2006)
- Belotero™ (FDA 2011)
- Restylane™ (FDA 2003)
Popular Areas treated with fillers on men
There are many areas that can be treated with fillers. Fillers can now even be used for a non surgical nose job where you use the filler to smooth out any bumps or uneven parts of your nose.
- You can fill out a jawline, giving yourself a more striking look.
- You can broaden and even out your lips so you feel less self-conscious about your smile.
- You can treat dark circles under your eyes, an unhealthy look that plagues many.
- And if you do want to smooth your wrinkles out, you can utilise Anti-Wrinkle Injections to ease them away.
Having a defined and chiselled jawline is an aesthetic feature that many men are after, and lucky for you this is now achievable with Jawline Filler. Jawline filler can be used to make the jaw more pronounced or consistent, whether clean-shaven, with a bit of stubble, or to complement a handsome beard.
Whether you’re looking to add more volume to your chin, or you want a more defined angle in your jaw, our Aesthetic Nurse & Doctor can help you get the look you want.
Lips are the first place the eye goes when someone is speaking, or when someone is considering kissing someone else. They say a lot about what happens next. Sometimes, men struggle with asymmetrical lips.
These can be evened out in a way that’s gradual and natural in appearance. There’s no harm in making another’s eyes linger.
Bags or dark circles under the eyes can be addressed with fillers. These fill out areas that look sunken or diminished. This can be important in encouraging others to meet your own gaze, whether you need a boss to listen more carefully to you, or to feel more confident on a date.
Eyes can be more expressive the more someone else is able to focus on them.
This is a proved method to reduce wrinkles. Many men don’t want to completely eliminate age lines that communicate wisdom and experience, but they may want to reduce them so they are less pronounced.
An Anti-Wrinkle Injections plan can be modified for the precise amount of effect you want it to have.
Profhilo is also an option for ageing, loose skin. Known as the 5 minute face lift, it can tighten and firm your skin with its patented BAP 5 point injection technique.
Injectables allow you to get the exact look you’re going for, whether it is the experienced enough to know what you’re doing, but still youthful and energetic look or you want the outside to reflect how you feel on the inside as there can sometimes be a disconnect between the two.
