Intro About Men and Injectables
Many men opt for non-surgical injectable treatments to address wrinkles and other signs of facial aging that can detract from their appearance. Injectable treatments come in three basic forms: neurotoxins (BOTOX®), dermal fillers and double chin treatment. Each of these treatments are popular among men in throughout the country.
Injectable treatments can be appropriate non-surgical solutions to some of the unique cosmetic concerns that many men have. Through the skilled application of injectables, men can achieve a younger, revitalized appearance, addressing concerns such as:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Sagging skin in the face, chin and neck regions
- Excess fat in the submental area (double chin)
A more youthful appearance without surgery appeals to many individuals, but men typically consider additional factors as well. Some of the most common reasons cosmetic injectables have become more popular with men include the expansive selection of formulas available, which allows for more precise customization.
Patient Story: BILL
“I realize now that the injector is pivotal. I only knew what I experienced, never knowing the difference an expert injector can make. I was driving around in a Chevy when I could have had a Lexus all along.”
Bill travels nationally as a frequent speaker and trainer for his company. He is also featured on videos. His high profile career keeps him in the public’s eye, so appearance is important. “When I got into my 50’s I realized my cheeks were beginning to look a bit sunken. I have a long, narrow face, so it was quite pronounced.” Bill found an injector he was comfortable with and was surprised that despite the cost, his fillers only lasted a couple months. He figured it was a product issue so he continued to go to the same practitioner, trying different fillers. For 5 years. All of them seemed to “absorb” in no time. “I’m a loyal kind of guy. I didn’t want to give up on my person, but I was starting to get very frustrated.” For 3 years Bill’s wife–a patient of Cindy Nickel– had been urging him to consider Cindy. In 2014 he gave in.
“My initial consultation with Cindy was so thorough. She really studied me. I was struck by her warm bedside manner and how she took her time. My other person was not nearly as confident. She used to say, “I think this will work”…or “Maybe we should try this…” Cindy said, “I know exactly what you need.” There was no comparison.”
Cindy’s plan worked. Bill had dermal fillers, Botox and more recently, Kybella. The results amazed him. “I realize now that the injector is pivotal. I only knew what I experienced, never knowing the difference an expert injector can make. I was driving around in a Chevy when I could have had a Lexus all along.”
Bill raves about Cindy’s skill set which he describes as “perfectionist” and “never cutting corners.” But he also enjoys her incredible proficiency in communication. “She walks you through each visit by educating you about why she is recommending a certain path, and helps you anticipate any hurdles in terms of any discomfort or recovery. I always felt prepared.” Bill also appreciates Cindy’s assistant, Lyndsay and calls her a “great asset to the practice.” “After Kybella I was swollen and Lyndsay followed up every day to be certain I was improving. She’s a doll.”
Bill tells other men they owe it to themselves to consult with Cindy. “If you are starting to look your age, or been bothered by a double chin, don’t be macho. It’s not just for girls. But be careful who you go to. I’m President of Cindy’s fan club–so start there.”
