These days, 15% of my patients seek male aesthetics. It is increasingly common to see Males seeking aesthetic treatments to better themselves. Here I share my 3 step programme to nailing the alpha male in you.
Before we go into that, allow me to explain the common problems men face.
What are common skin issues for males?
Skin | Rougher texture with pores, scars and pigments
Wrinkles | Deeper and longer due to stronger muscle bulk
Sagginess | Laughline and jawline droopiness
What are some male aesthetics?
- Clean and clear skin
- Smooth healthy skin, free of acne scars
- Well balanced facial proportions
Do guys have aesthetics?
The approach to male aesthetics differs from that of females. Men have a squarer face, larger jaw, increased facial muscle mass and subcutaneous tissue.
How is male skin different from females?
Men’s skin tends to be thicker, drier, of poorer texture, and more prone to pigmentation. Texture wise, men’s skin tend to have larger pores, and wider, deeper scarring. This is due to lifestyle and genetic factors.
What treatments are suitable for male skin rejuvenation?
- Laser to address pigmentation and pores
- RF microneedling to address acne scars
- Injectables: Gouri, Sculptra, Profhilo and Skinboosters for healthier, YOUNGER, glowing skin
A careful combination of skincare, lasers and injectables can do magic here. Because males tend not to lose collagen as fast as females. Hence the term graceful ageing, ageing like old wine, is commonly used for males.
How can we treat Wrinkles in males?
Wrinkles are common in the upper face, notably the forehead, frown area and around the eyes. This is because men tend to have larger muscles and are habitually using them, thereby creating deeper creases. Men also have bulkier jaw muscles, hence causing a squaring of the face which is not aesthetically pleasing.

- Injectables: Namely collagen stimulators and skinboosters

How can we treat male face sagginess?
In males, sagginess tend to occur along the jawline and laugh lines. Men tend to have flatter cheeks so filler augmentation along the jawline and cheekbones can help create the masculine, ALPHA MALE high cheekbone look.

Fillers to chin and laugh line
Fillers to cheek and jawline
Fillers to laugh lines
Fillers to laugh line and cheeks. This is a common request by male patients, for they develop laugh lines easily, due to lack of proper skincare regime.
Males tend to have more sun damaged skin.
Some like to be tanner, so this is not an issue for them.
Others prefer the BTS look, so crystal clear skin is a must.
