Women are not the only ones who struggle with signs of aging. Many men seek injectable treatments to treat wrinkles and fine lines and restore volume to the lips, cheeks, and chin. Our clinic offers the leading cosmetic injectables for men in Richmond, including neuromodulators as well as dermal fillers.

What Are Injectables?
Injectables are FDA-approved, body-safe, gel-based substances administered under the skin. Injectables can be used to:
- Treating facial wrinkles and skin folds
- Filling in fine lines, especially around the eyes and mouth
- Improving facial symmetry
- Increasing volume and fullness in the lips, cheek, chin, under-eyes, jawline, and back of the hands
- Non-surgically refining the nose, chin, and jawline
- Correcting acne scars and other skin texture issues
- Treating facial volume loss
Over time, the body breaks down injectables and naturally absorbs them, which is why results are temporary. Regular maintenance is required for long-lasting results.
Muscles underneath the skin naturally stretch and contact. These contractures cause the attached skin to stretch and fold, creating active wrinkles. Neuromodulators, such as Botox, Dysport, and Juveau, prevent muscular contractures and wrinkle formation by blocking the signals the brain sends these muscles.
Dermal fillers add volume to skin cells. Our Richmond office offers a variety of dermal fillers, including Juvederm, Restylane, RHA, Sculptra, and Renuva, for our male clients. Each filler has different applications to help fill fine lines, non-surgically reshape the facial structure, and add volume to the skin.
What to Expect During Your Injectable Procedure
The first step in your journey to youthful skin is scheduling your initial consultation. Here, we could discuss which injectable procedures are best suited for your skin concerns. You should tell the team about any medications you are taking, allergies, or if you have a history of chronic health issues, bleeding, bruising, or skin problems.
During your treatment, we will thoroughly cleanse your skin and apply a topical anesthetic. We then inject the selected fillers into the treatment areas, which is usually painless. A full injectable treatment takes less than an hour, depending on the number of concerns and treatment areas you want to address. After the injections, we will cleanse your skin once again to give you a fresh, rejuvenated glow.
You may be given an ice pack to reduce swelling after your treatment. Many patients see results immediately, though it may take time to see the full effects. At our clinic, we take extra care to ensure that your procedure allows you to look and feel masculine, and your face will never look frozen.
Do Injectable Treatments Require Downtime?
Most men can return to their usual activities immediately after their injectable treatment in Richmond. However, your recovery time will depend on the target injection areas, the type of filler, and your overall health.
