“I look tired, angry or sad.”
“I wish I could look more youthful and refreshed.”
Men’s faces contain less fat, have thicker skin and stronger muscle contractions when compared with women of the same age. As the male face ages, it loses subcutaneous fat, develops sagging and drooping, and is prone to deeper wrinkles. Common areas where men notice these changes include between the eyebrows (glabella), forehead lines, lines from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds), and the jawline. These wrinkles can be misinterpreted by others to suggest feelings of anger, fatigue or sadness.
Rejuvenation of these facials areas can be achieved efficiently with injectable treatments, either separately or in combination. At Medical Aesthetics of Muskoka, male clients can attain natural, subtle, masculine results with both Botox Cosmetic, Dysport and hyaluronic acid injectable fillers. These treatments can be provided quickly, use small needles, and require little to no down-time.
Botox Cosmetic and Dysport is a purified protein that is injected into a specific facial muscle to cause it to relax. It is used to treat wrinkles that appear when a muscle is moving, such as glabellar lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet beside the eyes, and forehead lines.

Hyaluronic acid injectable fillers are clear, non-animal based gels, which are injected into areas of facial flattening, volume loss, and specific wrinkles. Popular treatment areas for men include the nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth), jawline definition, and cheekbones.
