NYC men are taking advantage of dermal fillers

In 1981, the FDA approved the first injectable dermal filler. Since then, countless women have enjoyed fuller, more youthful features with a variety of modern dermal fillers. Men in the NYC area are also discovering the benefits of this minimally-invasive rejuvenation technique.

Driving influences

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that soft tissue fillers are the second most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment in this country, with 2.6 million procedures performed in 2016. Eight percent of all cosmetic procedures and 1.1 million minimally-invasive treatments were performed on men. Why?

  • Professional success – Americans are working later in life. Yet studies show that physical characteristics that project energy, fitness, and health translate into a perception of capability. A refreshed appearance improves chances of securing a job, receiving promotions, and ultimately of success.
  • Self-confidence – Changes in facial appearance might be inevitable, but they can be difficult to accept. Men are not immune to those anxieties. Dermal fillers restore lost volume, lifting features and filling lines and wrinkles. Rejuvenation boosts self-esteem for either gender.
  • The 50 to 76 age group is the fastest-growing segment of online dating. Youthful appearance helps mature men enter the courting arena looking as young as they feel.
  • It is easy! – Injection sessions typically take an hour or less, and have no downtime (although there may be mild, temporary side effects such as bruising or redness at injection sites). Results are immediate and last several months.
