When our skin ages, our faces can lose their youthful fullness as well as developing fine lines and wrinkles. Facial aging affects men as well as women, and many men find themselves desiring a more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are a more popular treatment than ever for men, with the number of men getting fillers having increased 99% since 2000. Board-certified plastic surgeon Raymund J. Llaurado, MD, practicing in Arroyo Grande and Santa Maria, California, specializes in giving men the results they desire from cosmetic fillers.

Understanding dermal fillers
Dermal fillers are substances that can be injected into your face. These substances work to reverse the fat loss, wrinkles, and facial lines that develop in the face as your skin ages.
After getting fillers, your face will appear younger and more rejuvenated. You’ll have fewer visible wrinkles, a softer face with fewer creases, reduced shadowing on your lower lids, fuller lips, and a minimized appearance of any scarring.
Dr. Llaurado uses three types of dermal fillers, Radiesse®, Restylane®, and Juvéderm®, to achieve your best results. Radiesse promotes collagen production, helping your face appear fuller, Restylane diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and Juvéderm helps add volume to specific areas of your face.
Benefits of getting dermal fillers for men
It’s a myth that only women get facial cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers. An increasing number of men are seeking out cosmetic procedures to make changes in appearance that help them feel younger and more confident.
Like women, men who get dermal fillers benefit from a more youthfully refreshed, softened, and smoother appearance. When working with male clients, Dr. Llaurado turns back the clock on aging while retaining or creating a chiseled look to the jaw and cheeks. You’ll get the full anti-aging benefits without having to sacrifice your masculine appearance.
What happens during a dermal filler treatment
Dermal fillers are an outpatient treatment, which you can get at either of Dr. Llaurado’s offices. Prior to starting treatment, Dr. Llaurado consults with you and determines the best course of treatment to meet your desired outcomes.
Your dermal filler treatments can be done in just one visit. After cleaning your skin, and if needed, applying a topical anesthetic, Dr. Llaurado carefully injects a selected amount of dermal filler into your face. The treatment is quick and can easily be done during your lunch break, and you can return to your regular routine immediately after receiving dermal fillers.
Avoid strenuous activity or overstretching your face for a few days after the treatment. You might have minor facial swelling or bruising for a few days after the injection.
You’ll start to see results right after Dr. Llaurado performs your treatment. Depending on the fillers used, the effects of your fillers can last for up to two years.
Dr. Llaurado ensures male clients get the facial rejuvenation results they desire while being sensitive to men’s unique needs. To learn more about dermal fillers, make an appointment online or by calling Dr. Llaurado’s Arroyo Grande or Santa Maria office.
