The face is the area where men first notice the signs of aging, with wrinkles the most common – and dreaded – symptom. Facial wrinkles in men can come from several factors. Collagen and elastin are two substances in the skin that give it structure, firmness, and elasticity. As men age, the concentration of these substances gradually decreases, with the facial skin slowly losing its youthful firmness, starting to wrinkle and sag. Wrinkles and unsightly creases can also appear as the facial skin and tissue loses volume. Repetitive muscle motion from smiling, laughing, and furrowing the brow cause repeated stress on the skin tissue, causing more lines and creases to form. Fortunately, there are treatment options that can restore a more youthful appearance, including BOTOX. Men have been coming to Dr. Sheena Kong in ever-increasing numbers, with facial wrinkles, creases, and lines a common concern.
When the issue is lost volume, BOTOX is not the appropriate treatment. In these cases, dermal fillers are employed to plump the area, and restore a more youthful firmness to the face. Dermal fillers are injected into the face to "fill it out," and replenish tissue volume. Several types of dermal fillers may be used to treat specific areas of the face. Dr. Sheena Kong is a highly-experienced physician who has focused her practice on cosmetic enhancements for men, including anti-aging treatments, and regenerative treatments for face and body.
