Dermal Fillers and Male Beauty Treatments
MEN | AESTHETICS
At Jacks & Buckley, Dr David Buckley personally provides facial aesthetic treatments for male and female clients and has an interest in looking after both nervous, anxious and needle-phobic patients and clients who have either never had any treatments or had previous bad experiences. It is our strong belief that you deserve to feel confident and good about yourself at all times. For some people that involves treatments that are designed to restore their youth and vitality, or subtly enhance their natural appearance. Our mission is to offer information, advice and treatment options that empower our clients to make choices that are right for them.
As we age our skin loses its natural elasticity and moisture holding capacity, it thins and produces fewer protective oils, together this contributes to the aged look of skin. As the muscles of our face, just beneath the skin, contract and move they cause wrinkles to appear on the skin. In youth, our skin resists these wrinkles, but as skin ages these wrinkles become more noticeable. Although wrinkles are most noticeable during expressions such as smiling, laughing, frowning and grimacing, over time these wrinkles can become permanent static lines, that are always present. Botulinum toxin (for which Botox is a specific trade-marked brand) is a natural occurring chemical that causes relaxation of muscles. When botulinum toxin is injected just beneath the skin into the muscles causing wrinkles, the muscles relax and cause less wrinkling of the overlying skin. Botulinum toxin has been used in both medicine and aesthetic medicine for decades and its safety record is well established. For deeper wrinkles or wrinkles that have become permanent static lines on the skin, it is sometimes necessary to use dermal fillers to soften or remove these. The effects of botulinum toxin take between 3-7 days to reach its peak effect and this will last for between 3-4months. Initially, it is better to be cautious in the amount of toxin used, so as to produce a natural look that does not leave you without any facial expressions. However, 2 weeks following your initial treatment, you will be invited for a review and at that point if there are top-ups required, they are done free of charge. Areas in which patients generally notice wrinkles they wish to reduce are: Forehead horizontal lines, Frown (Glabella) vertical lines between the eyebrows and Crow’s-feet lines or Laughter lines around the eyes. Other areas include around the mouth and neck bands. Treatment involves the injection of small quantities of the botulinum toxin, just under the skin, with exceptionally fine needles, into several places per treated area.
Dermal Fillers can help to boost volume in areas of loss and reduce wrinkle lines and grooves giving you a more youthful and beautiful appearance. Dermal Fillers are made of a naturally occurring substance in all our bodies called hyaluronic acid that holds water and moisture in the skin and deeper tissues promoting its softness and fullness in youth. This substance also stimulates collagen formation that supports the structure of the skin and reduces the signs of ageing. As we age our body produces less of this substance and our skin loses its volume and moisture. By injecting dermal fillers, lost volume can be replaced, and the skin appear more youthful and rejuvenated. By injecting slightly larger volumes of filler, it is also possible to recontour parts of the face, giving you a preferred or enhanced appearance. Typically, the effects of dermal fillers are seen immediately, and their effects can last for 9 to 18 months. Following your initial treatment, you will be invited back for a review after 2 weeks and at this time any further fillers or modifications can be added. Commonly patients will have fillers to enhance their lips and cheeks – areas that commonly lose volume as we age. However, fillers are also used to smoothen deep wrinkles and groves, such as Nasolabial folds (the grooves between the nose and corner of the mouth) or Marionette lines (the grooves from the corner of the mouth that extend downwards to the jaw). Additionally, dermal fillers are used to soften or re-contour the jawline and chin, restoring the smooth classic V-shape of the face. Through a combination of both dermal fillers and botulinum toxins it is possible to achieve non-surgical face lifts, that avoid the risks of surgery and anaesthetics at a much cheaper cost.
With age the tissues of our face and cheeks lose elasticity and volume and change shape. Coupled with the effect of gravity, this can cause our jawline to appear aged and less defined and increase the prominence of other lines and grooves in our face, such as marionette lines (the grooves from the corner of the mouth extending down to the jaw line). Additionally, we are all born with unique differences and for some this can appear as a less defined ‘feminine’ or ‘masculine’ jawline. By using dermal filler, it is possible to enhance the jawline, increase definition and shape and reduce the appearance of other lines and grooves on the lower face.
Tear Trough Enhancment
With age our face loses volume and elasticity and near the lower orbit can cause a change in shape that increases the prominence of the Tear Trough. This is the circular groove underneath the lower eyelid that can appear darkened and create a shadow effect. Tear Trough treatment involves placing a small amount of dermal filler within this groove that smoothens this appearance and restores a more youthful and well rested appearance.
Nefertiti Face Lift (Non-surgical)
As we age, we lose volume and elasticity in the tissues of the face. This can cause tissues to lose their tone and sag, making the lower face appear dropped. The Nefertiti Face Lift is a non-surgical procedure that avoids the risks of surgery and a general anaesthetic and costs involved. It involves the administration of botulinum toxin to the muscles of the upper neck which causes them to relax, allowing the muscles of the lower face to lift the face upwards unopposed. The overall effect is of a more youthful and rejuvenated lower face and jawline.
With age our face and cheeks lose volume and change shape, sometimes giving a tired appearance. With the change in face shape that comes from this volume loss, it can increase the prominence of other lines and grooves in our face, such as the naso-labial grove (the groove from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth). By using dermal fillers, it is possible to increase the definition of your cheeks to a more feminine or masculine structure, restore lost volume and correct other lines and grooves on your face.
Naso-Labial Fold Treatment
As we age, our face, cheeks and areas around our mouths lose volume and elasticity causing a change in shape that can sometimes give a tired appearance. With the change in face shape, that comes from this volume loss, it can increase the prominence of lines and grooves in our face, such as the Naso-Labial grove. This is the groove from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth. By placing dermal filler in these areas, it is possible improve and correct the appearance of these lines and grooves, restore and correct lost volume and increase definition of your mid-face and cheeks.
Marionette Line Treatment
With age the tissues of our face and cheeks lose elasticity and volume and change shape. Coupled with the effect of gravity, this can cause our lower face and jawline to appear aged and less defined and increase the prominence of other lines and grooves in our face, such as the marionette lines. These are the grooves from the corner of the mouth extending down to the jaw line. By placing dermal filler in these areas, it is possible to correct and reduce the appearance of these grooves and lines, increase the definition and shape of your jawline and enhance the lower face.
We all have our unique and beautiful facial features, however, for some they wish to enhance or change the appearance of certain of these features. It is possible to use dermal fillers to alter the shape and contour of the nose. This is a non-surgical procedure that avoids the risks of surgery and a general anaesthetic and costs involved.
8-point Face Lift (Non-surgical)
With age the tissues of our face lose volume and elasticity and coupled with the effects of gravity can cause a change in shape that sometimes gives a tired and sagging appearance. The 8-Point Face Lift is a non-surgical procedure, which avoids the risks of both a general anaesthetic and risks of surgery (along with the substantial financial cost). Dermal filler is placed in a very specific and personalised bespoke way to eight points throughout each side of the face, designed to create a lifting and tightening effect that increases lost volume and smoothens areas of grooves and lines similar to the effects seen with a classical ‘surgical’ face lift. The overall effect is of a rejuvenated and youthful appearance to your face.
With age our lips naturally thin out and lose volume. Additionally, some of us are born with or acquire slight asymmetries in our lips (differences in volume and shape left and right, up and down). By using small amounts of dermal filler, it is possible to enhance the definition along the vermillion border, increase the volume of your lips, correct asymmetries and enhance the cupids-bow.
Anti-Wrinkle InjectablesBotulinum toxin treatments costs for men are slightly higher than women. This is based on anatomical differences in muscle mass and strength and the need to administer more botulinum toxin to achieve the desired effect. Prices for botulinum toxin injections are usually based on number of areas to be treated:
- 1 Area £140 (introductory offer – Usually £200)
- 2 Areas £180 (introductory offer – Usually £250)
- 3 Areas £230 (introductory offer – Usually £300)
Dermal FillersThere is no cost difference for men compared to women for dermal fillers, as this is dependant only on the amount of filler required and varies for each patient and their own treatment needs.
- Dermal Fillers – £175 per 0.5ml
- Dermal Fillers – £250 per 1ml (£150 thereafter for each additional 1ml)
