Did you know that wrinkle relaxing treatments are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments for men?
Because you can achieve a subtle and natural looking result quickly and easily, it’s no surprise fillers are top of the list for men! They’re just one great way of turning back time and rejuvenating your face. But there are actually a number of other treatments offered by Dr Kathryn which are suitable for men.
Read on to discover more ways to achieve that youthful, refreshed look you’re after…
As men age, the effects of gravity pull the cheeks down, eyelids droop, lines and wrinkles appear, and skin becomes saggier on the neck.
Threadlifts are a brilliant solution to these problems as they reposition your skin to where it once was. Poly-L-lactic sutures are inserted into the skin where their specially designed barbs softly grip surrounding tissues. Once in place, they support sagging skin. As the thread naturally dissolves the body produces more collagen for an even longer-lasting result.
Results are immediate and usually last from 18 months to 2 years depending on the sutures used and the patient.
Dr Kathryn offers Aptos and Silhouette Soft and will determine the most suitable option for you at your complimentary consultation.

Another common concern which men are faced with is hair loss. It can really knock your confidence! I-PRF is an innovative treatment which uses your own blood plasma to target areas for regeneration, like your hairline.
It’s a relatively straightforward treatment. After assessing your suitability, Dr Kathryn will collect a blood sample from your arm, before spinning it in a centrifuge to separate platelets/fibrin. This platelet rich fibrin is extracted from the test tube and then injected back into the area of concern.
I-PRF can also treat joint and soft tissue disorders – so if you’ve got a full head of hair but suffer from problems like tennis elbow, you might still consider this new treatment.
You’ll notice changes over time, although it does start working immediately. Results can vary between patients because I-PRF does depend on your own platelets. You can expect your results to last up to 2 years, but a top up treatment is usually recommended after 1 year.
The shape of your nose can really impact your appearance and your self-confidence. Perhaps you’ve had an accident which has caused a deformity or lumpy appearance, you’re unhappy with a previous nose-job, you have always had some asymmetry or just don’t like the general shape.
Using gentle dermal fillers Dr Kathryn can correct these concerns quickly in the clinic, without the need for surgery, which can take weeks to heal. At your assessment, Dr Kathryn will consider the most suitable dermal filler for your needs.
Dr Kathryn will be able to advise you of how long you can expect your results to last at your consultation, as it varies between dermal fillers.
Men often experience sagging eyelids with age, which can add years to your appearance. A Plexr treatment could be your solution to this, without the need for scalpels or sutures.
Plexr works by effectively vaporising crepey skin and leaving re-collagenised skin in its place. Dr Kathryn creates minute spots with the device, spaced a certain distance apart, to stimulate the instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres.
The treatment doesn’t cause bleeding, and most importantly will not damage the tissue in the surrounding area or beneath.
You get instant results from Plexr and they will continue to improve over 2-4 weeks. Effects can last a few years, depending on the number of treatments you have and your natural ageing process.
Fat Dissolving Injections
It can become harder to shift stubborn fat from the face and body with age. If you are struggling to get rid of it naturally with regular exercise and a healthy diet, talk to Dr Kathryn about fat dissolving injections at Real You.
This treatment option is particularly good for the jawline, arms, stomach, back and legs.
Fat dissolving injections treat localised fat deposits by liquefying and breaking down fat cells which drain naturally through the body’s lymphatic system over a few weeks. 3-6 sessions are usually required to achieve optimal results which are permanent. It is important to note that you must maintain a healthy diet and exercise after treatment to keep any new fat cells at bay!
Dr Kathryn will thoroughly assess your suitability for fat dissolving injections at your consultation.
More treatments for men…
There are other treatments that are brilliant for men too!

Testosterone levels also decrease the older you get (around 1% a year from age 30), which can lead to a low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, loss of muscle, depression and a low sense of wellbeing. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may benefit from testosterone replacement therapy. As a GP for over 25 years, Dr Kathryn can test for low hormone levels and prescribe the most appropriate treatment plan for you.
