Injectables for Men: Everything You Need to Know

People who want to address skin concerns or achieve a traditionally more “masculine” facial appearance may find that certain injectables can help them achieve the results they desire. Whether you are seeking a more contoured jawline or reduced fine lines on your forehead, here is everything you need to know about the most popular injectables for men.

Top Injectable Treatments for Men


Lines and wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead are the easiest to treat with BOTOX. As such, BOTOX may be the solution for men who want to eliminate deep forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. The formula in BOTOX is effective because it prevents nerve impulses that normally tighten face muscles. As a result, the skin above the forehead muscle may be kept smooth and wrinkle-free.


Dysport is a form of botulinum toxin that may be injected to address a variety of cosmetic concerns. It’s similar to BOTOX because it prevents nerve signals from reaching the muscles responsible for wrinkles, particularly between the brows. Men who have moderate to severe frown lines (also known as “11 lines”) may find an improvement with Dysport.


Cosmetic injectable Xeomin has been licensed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines in males. Xeomin, like Botox and Dysport, is also made from botulinum toxin and is classified as a neurotoxin.

Dysport vs. BOTOX vs. Xeomin for Men

In comparison, Dysport often requires more units than BOTOX or Xeomin but begins to show benefits sooner and is less expensive per unit. However, although BOTOX and Xeomin take longer to show effects, less product is needed to achieve the same outcomes. All three yield similar effects in terms of duration.

Dermal Fillers

In addition to the top injectable treatments above, males may also find excellent results by using dermal fillers for various cosmetic concerns. Here are three of the top dermal filler brands that address men’s common aesthetic needs:

  • Sculptra® – a collagen stimulant to build healthier and stronger facial skin
  • Restylane® – fills in lines around the nose and lips and can help men achieve sharper cheekbones
  • JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® – the best filler to achieve the appearance of a stronger and more chiseled jawline

Am I a Candidate for Injectables?

Men can be qualified candidates for injectables if they are at least 18 years of age, in good health, and have realistic expectations regarding their appearance post-treatment.

Men who have fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging on their face can benefit from injectables. Those who are also missing volume in certain areas of the face can restore volume with injectable fillers. Men who are looking to achieve facial balancing or improve the appearance of their masculine features can also benefit. Injectables are a great treatment option for men who want to improve their facial features but do not want to undergo a surgical procedure.

If you are someone who has active acne or an untreated skin infection, injectables may not be right for you. If you are allergic to the ingredients within popular injectables such as BOTOX or dermal fillers, you will not qualify as a candidate.

Are There Any Side Effects with Injectables?

Yes. No matter what brand or type of injectable you are treated with, there are still a few common side effects that you may experience. The following side effects are very common and expected when it comes to receiving injectables:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Rashes
  • Difficulty moving treated muscles

Within several days after your treatment, these common side effects should independently subside. Although rare, injectables may also come with the following risks:

  • Infection in the treated area
  • Open wounds
  • Draining wounds
  • Raised bumps underneath the skin
  • Allergic reactions
  • Necrosis
  • Asymmetry

At Greater Miami Skin and Laser Center, our highly experienced medical team provides careful, personalized care to each patient, minimizing the risks of complications during your treatment.

When Can I Expect to See Results from My Injectables?

Receiving injectables is often a short process that can take as little as thirty minutes, so most patients are able to return to their normal routines immediately after their treatment. On average, it can take up to two weeks to fully recover from a BOTOX treatment and about three weeks to recover from injectable fillers. It may also take up to four weeks for your injectables to fully integrate with your skin tissue and look natural. However, this timeline can vary from patient to patient.

How Long Will My Injectables Last?

Depending on the type of injectable you receive, the duration of how long your results will last may vary. Injectable fillers typically last between six to twelve months, while Dysport and BOTOX can last up to three to four months.

What Are the Benefits of Injectables for Men?

Cosmetic injectables can provide a variety of benefits to men looking to reduce the appearance of signs of aging or achieve a more masculine facial appearance. These benefits can include:

  • Eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce signs of aging
  • Restore lost volume
  • Achieve a more youthful appearance
  • Achieve facial balance
  • Extend or enhance the jawline
  • Contour the face
  • Increase self-confidence

What Are the Most Popular Fillers for Men?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the most common and beneficial injectables for men are neurotoxins, such as BOTOX and Dysport, to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, as well as dermal fillers used to contour and sculpt the face to achieve a more masculine appearance.
