Dermal Fillers for Men
What exactly is this treatment?
Are you looking for a treatment that offers jawline enhancement, nose reshaping or can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles? Dermal fillers could help.
As we age, our skin loses both collagen and elastin, key components that provide youthful support and definition to overall facial structure. In gentlemen, this is particularly noticeable around the cheeks, jawline and jowls, and more and more men are opting for non-surgical aesthetic treatments to help restore a more youthful profile. Dermal Fillers can also help to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles without impacting dynamic facial movements.
How do I know if this treatment is safe and right for me?
At Appearance Based Medicine Ltd., Clare McLoughlin RGN INP will only carry out a Dermal Filler treatment following a detailed one-to-one consultation with a patient, enabling her to accurately assess whether a treatment is appropriate given a patient’s unique medical history, skin condition and expectations. If Clare feels that a treatment would not give the desired results, or is not required, the patient will be advised of this during the pre-treatment consultation.
During a consultation, a patient is given comprehensive information about the procedure, potential side effects, and any pre- and post-treatment advice. They will also be given the time to decide whether or not, given the information they have received, they would like to proceed with any recommended procedure.
As with any injectable aesthetic treatment, there is a small risk of a patient experiencing side effects post-treatment with Dermal Fillers. Some patients experience minor bleeding at the injection site, which can be followed by temporary and minor swelling, bruising, redness and soreness of the treatment site. However, these symptoms are usually not serious and should resolve on their own. Clare McLoughlin RGN INP will ensure that all patients are given comprehensive advice and support post-treatment to ensure that their treatment is as safe and effective as possible.
How does this treatment work?
A Dermal Filler treatment can help to replace lost volume and redefine the shape of the face. This is due to the fact that many Dermal Fillers contain Hyaluronic Acid – a naturally occurring substance – that helps the skin to retain moisture more effectively and creates a ‘cushion’ to add volume and definition to ageing skin.
What happens during the treatment?
All Dermal Filler Injections are administered by Clare McLoughlin RGN INP, our skilled and experienced Aesthetic Nurse Prescriber. Injections are administered using a very fine, disposable needle or cannula (a blunt tipped needle), and the procedure usually takes around 45 minutes to complete. The injectable Dermal Filler solution restores lost volume and reduces the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles.
The results from a Dermal Filler treatment are instant and normally last 4-12 months depending on the area treated and type of filler used.
Which areas of the body can be safely treated with dermal fillers?
Popular areas for treatment include:
- Nose to mouth grooves (marionette lines)

- ‘Sunken’ cheeks
- ‘Sagging’ of the cheeks or jowls caused by loss of volume and gravity
