Liquid Face Lift for Males
The best cosmetic procedures for males are ones with minimal downtime and loss of
privacy. Cosmetic procedures for guys are a rapidly growing part of the
market, but still most men would rather keep it a deep, dark secret. What
would they say in the office, eh? (I'll tell you what the women would say:
they would applaud the fact that you look ten years younger!
The Liquid Face Lift is, by all these criterion, the perfect procedure for males.
Men can come into the office on a Friday and be easily recovered by Monday.
And the results are generally very impressive and long-lasting: a good doctor
can take a decade or more off of your appearance and some procedures last for
about two years.

So how does it work? It's this easy: the doc injects one of the new
cosmetic fillers into various parts of your face to fill in wrinkles and sunken
areas, typically in the cheeks, eye and mouth area. Again, it sounds like
a silly solution, but it works because so much of the facial aging process
involves sagging, sunken skin. Inserting fillers into these areas simply raises
skin to smooth out wrinkles and makes your face look less "hollowed out" and
"saggy". Almost every feature on the fact can be improved through fillers such
And, perhaps most importantly, researchers have found that these fillers actually
stimulate collagen synthesis. Of course, collagen is the "backbone" of
skin and boosting its production is one of the Holy Grails of facial anti-aging.
What researchers at the University of Michigan found was that in young
people, fibroblasts, which produce the collegen, are stretched naturally.
However, this process is significantly reduced in older people and fillers help to
stretch the fibroblasts resulting in more collagen production. 
of seniors using Restylane showed just that. 
Results generally persist from 6 months to year depending on the procedures and
filler used. The longer lasting fillers include injectables such as Radiesse, Artefille and Sculptra. However,
some may feel more secure with
hyaluronic acid-based (Restylane and Juvéderm) or collagen-based (CosmoDerm and
So why doesn't everyone run out and get one of these liquid face lifts?
Cost is probably the primary reason, which generally runs in teh $3,000 to
$6,000 range. If you've got the money, they're hard to beat for results,
but let's face it: for most people, it means picking between a new face or
a new car.
Still, the procedure is perfect of most males due to its private and incognito
CAUTION: Although shorter lived, the hyaluronic acid and collagen
fillers are part of our skin matrix and can be naturally reabsorbed into the
body making any long term effects less likely. The longer-lasting fillers
are based on collagen and/or hyaluronic acid, but have additional, non-natural
components added that have uncertain long term health effects. Cosmetic surgeons
argue that results have been good and side effects rare, but we simply do not
know what occurs from decades of use.
