The Male Tweak
Non-surgical cosmetic treatment options for men are now better than ever, Nicki Belle of Face Today tells DNA.
The ageing process affects us all and how we physically present to the world influences our self-esteem and confidence.  The male face is based on strength and straight lines.  Some of the signs of ageing in a man’s face are associated with maturity, accomplishment and refinement – characteristics that are well received by society.  So most men want to be discreet about their tweaks and don’t want to look noticeably different afterwards.  Using “The Face Today Pack For All Mankind”, the following can be achieved…
1.    CHEEKS.   As we age we lose facial volume.  This can leave us looking gaunt or drawn.  The fat pads in the cheeks can be restored with SubQ to create a healthier look.  “We’ve noticed an increase in the request for this treatment among our male clients” says Nicki Belle of Face Today Medi Clinic.  “Non-surgical cheek enhancement is ideal for men who want more balance in their features and is great if you’ve lost weight.”
2.    CHIN.  Unfortunately, not all of us are born with a strong chin or a straight, angular jaw.  Luckily, there are non-surgical ways to enhance a weak chin with dermal fillers.  Anti-wrinkle “boy tox” injections can also smooth out creases that have been etched in over time.
3.    EYES.  “Natural and undetected is the key when it comes to treatments around men’s eyes,” says Nicki.  “This is one area we don’t want to smooth out too much.”  Botox or Dysport can be used around crow’s feet to help smooth and diminish lines while dermal fillers can address the hooding, caused by the erosion of the brow bone that creates a tired look.
4.    FOREHEAD.  Years of expression, etched on your forehead, can leave you with a serious, weary look.  Many men want to refresh this area while maintaining a masculine appearance and movement.  Botox or Dysport injections can soften and rebalance the largest muscle on your face.  
5.    JAW LINE.  A strong jaw line is considered attractive and adds masculinity to the male face.  Non-surgical jaw restoration with a dermal filler such as Perlane or SubQ can create a structured, angular jaw line that looks natural and lasts from 12-18 months.
6.    LIPS.  Lip restoration – on men this must be done naturally and subtly.  “It’s all about retaining the lips you had in your youth” says Nicki.  “By injecting Restylane or Perlane we can add volume and reshape in a natural way.”
7.    NOSE.  Bumps, dips and slight imperfections can now all be corrected with non-surgical Rhinoplasty.  Noses can be straightened or enhanced with Perlane or Radiesse.
8.    ORBITAL RIMS.  Hollowness around the eyes can be hereditary or can be a sign of tiredness or ageing.  Hollows can be filled for instant results.  It’s a simple procedure that can take years off, leaving you looking more refreshed and rested.
9.    T  BROW.  The T Brow is the strength of the male face: the straight nose and the straight, flat brow.  With age, the brow can start to droop at the edges but this can be addressed with Restylane or Perlane, regaining a strong projection with a reinforced lateral brow.
10.    TEMPLES.  The temples are often overlooked yet, by returning volume and shape to this area with a dermal filler, a youthful facial frame can be restored.  Once corrected, the benefits here can be instant and satisfying.

Natural Lips

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Now you can take control of the ageing process by restoring youthful lip volume and enhancing your beautiful smile. Natural youthful lips are a symbol of beauty around the world and are desired by women of all ages. Now there’s a natural way to create the lips you’ve always wanted, with a tried and trusted treatment, Swedish Filler. Your mouth is the centre of attention when interacting with others. You use it every day to talk, smile, laugh and kiss. Swedish Filler can help enhance your lips – your way.


A lip enhancement can include just a small correction, make an irregular upper lip more balanced or simply make your lips fuller and more sensuous. However, not everyone desires fuller lips. Perhaps a more defined cupid’s bow to outline the shape of your upper lip is preferred. A defined lip line accentuates you lips without changing your appearance. Even if you have never smoked you might still have small lines around your mouth, Face Today can easily smooth out those lines with a Swedish Filler product.
