Treatments for Men, Botox for Men

Treatments for men are becoming increasingly popular. In summary our treatments for men are;

  • Hair removal for men, typically for chest, back and shoulder hair.
  • Wrinkle treatments using Botox to reduce frown lines.
  • Wrinkle treatments using dermal fillers to fill wrinkles around the nose and mouth and add volume to hollow cheeks.
  • Skin Care Products to reduce signs of ageing, stimulate collagen and recapture a more youthful appearance.
  • All treatments are subject to a full consultation with our Advanced Nurse Practitioners who have prescribing qualifications.

Do you treat Men at the clinic?

Yes lots, in fact our male clients show the biggest growth year on year. The male market is a progressive one, and we make sure our male clientele feel at home and relaxed. This video shows how one of our male customers reduces, acne, spots and dry skin using iS Clinical products.

Do Male treatments differ from female ones?

Not really, they are very similar, but men often need more treatment. This is due to the strength and size of male muscles, and the thickness of the skin. Men nearly always require more Botox wrinkle relaxant than women, however at Qutis treatment prices are the same for men and women.

Besides Botox Treatments, what else do Men have?

A. We offer a variety of dermal fillers which are becoming more and more popular with our male clients.  Fillers can be used to naturally restore ‘lost volume’ and to smooth out deeper lines on the face  which improves the overall look and at the same time tends to produce a younger looking face. The most popular lines to treat with a dermal filler are the nose to mouth lines. (see picture Mark Morgan).

We also offer an injection for Hyperhidrosis which combats excessive sweating under the arms.  This treatment is performed twice a year and leaves the underarms almost perspiration free.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments for permanent hair reduction are also gaining popularity with our male clients.  The areas treated differ from our female clients, with a popular area to treat being the back.

More men are attending MBNS for Intense Pulse Light (IPL) for photo-rejuvenation. The treatment is for facial veins and pigmentation changes due to sun damage, it also stimulates the skin to produce collagen thus giving a more youthful look.

What were your reasons for wanting treatment?

Well quite honestly I was fed up of people at work saying I looked annoyed because of the constant frown I had on my face. I really do lead a full life, and as a consequence, I looked tired. I’m a person who does like to spend money on good clothes and think also I take care of my skin with decent products, but something more was needed!

How comfortable did you feel coming into the clinic?

After researching local clinics MBNS and Qutis on the internet and also after having a consultation over the telephone I knew I was dealing with a group of very professional people, so the fact it was a female environment was of no consequence to me. I was made to feel at ease with the whole experience from the time I made my first enquiry all the way through to the end of the treatment. I also was in the waiting room with another chap and we chatted quite freely about the European Cup while waiting for treatment!

Was your treatment painful?

Not at all. As men today are looking after their health and appearance more by visiting the gym regularly and wearing nicer clothes, it seemed natural that the next step was to address the ageing process, and as I now know, dermal fillers improve the lines and make the face look brighter, fresher and younger, but not feminine.

Did you find the Treatment Times suited you?

My appointments were tailored to ensure that there was no disruption to my everyday life. The fact the clinics opens late a couple of evenings a week (until 7pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays) is a real godsend to someone working 40 hours plus every week.

Did you worry if friends would notice your Botox Treatment?

I guess there’s always a bit of apprehension when you try something new, however I hoped that the results would be something to be proud of and my single minded attitude soon banished any negative thoughts I may have had. My treatment results backed this up, as I had a host of positive comments. Friends would just say “I looked well” rather than assume I’d had a treatment of some sort.

I have always held the belief that men should look after their appearance. In my opinion, there isn’t anything vain about it, we clean our cars, we paint the outside of our houses, so keeping your own exterior maintained is quite normal.Steve 46, explains his Dermal Filler (Sculptra) treatment

What were your reasons for wanting treatment?

Turning 40 was not the big deal that I thought it would be, I was very active attending Karate Classes 3 times a week, with a semi regular visit to the gym.

At 42 I decided to join my partner in her training for a half marathon and lost a fair amount of weight relatively quickly. I felt great until I noticed that the weight was coming off my face and this made me look tired, gaunt, and worst of all older, this really hit me when I was snapped side on in a photo. It didn’t look like me, not the me I had in my head anyway, I had lost so much volume in my cheeks and the more I looked in the mirror the worse I was feeling. I actually became quite down about it.

This came up in conversation with a friend who noticed I wasn’t my usual self. Fortunately she had heard of the Sculptra product, so later I set off on a Google research quest to find out more. I quickly came across the award winning nurses who work at both Qutis Clinic in Witney and MBNS clinic in Thame, and after checking out their website I made a rather apprehensive phone call armed with my newly acquired internet knowledge. They were very welcoming and made me feel at ease right away, so I booked an initial consultation.

Did you have any concerns about Filler Treatment?

One of my concerns was actually looking like I had had treatment, I have a few rugby player mates and after dishing out my fair share of banter, I just knew they would have a field day! The specialist at MBNS chuckled ever so politely at this and explained that it was a gradual process that the treatments would stimulate my own collagen… ok, so my own collagen will start to plump out my face again? Great, so just how gradual are we talking here I asked? A noticeable change after about 3 months and 9 months to reach the full effect! Sure enough, after just 3 treatments and 9 months later I have been very pleased with the results. Apparently, it lasts for about 2 years, but the good news is you can just have a further treatment to maintain your own collagen growth, should you need it. Another important thing to mention, these clinics have won the aesthetic nurse of the year for two years running, I felt that they listened, were non judgemental and ‘kindly efficient.’

How do you feel after your Filler Treatment?

I have had people commenting that I look well, the only people that know about the treatment are those I choose to tell. I did come clean and tell the rugby chaps, and after a little bit of stick, one asked for the clinic contact details for Botox Witney and Fillers Thame and another admitted that he had had filler too! We stopped short of having a group hug, or going shopping together, but it just goes to show you!

Since I first started to have filler, I have been back two years later and I am now having Juvederm Voluma filler, which the nurses tell me has superseded the previous filler. I just looked up Juvederm Thame or Juvederm Oxford or Juvederm Witney and I am happy to keep coming back and be seen at at MBNS or the Qutis Witney clinic.

I’m 46 now and I am a great deal happier when, armed with my shaving gel and razor, I catch myself staring back.

What were your reasons for wanting treatment?

Lewis 47, and works in the City as a finance consultant

“The workplace can be a tough place to be right now, particularly in the City which is very youth orientated, and the pressure is definitely on in the current financial climate. A hard stare in the mirror one morning brought me to my senses; I was looking tired and drawn.  I am not vain. I am not averse to the odd line or two – they can add character and bestow experience, but the hollows under my eyes made me look weary and lacking energy. So time to consult MBNS – a well established skin clinic which was recommended to me by a colleague.

Did you have any concerns about Filler Treatment?

The pre-treatment consultation was very thorough.  I was assured that after a course of Restylane Vital treatments that my skin would look fresher and toned. Restylane would also soften my tear trough hollows and deep nose to mouth lines to give a more energised look. So I embarked on a course of Restylane Vital treatments to my mid face and decided to go ahead with the treatments for the tear trough and nose to mouth lines.

How do you feel after your Filler Treatment?

I am so delighted with the results.  As promised I look better for the age I am, not dramatically different. I no longer look tired all the time.  I could see the results of the tear trough and nose to mouth lines treatment immediately which was very exciting – the lines had been lifted away. Best of all I left the clinic and got back to day to day living with no downtime.

I can highly recommend Restylane Vital as a skin boosting treatment – my skin feels firmer and more toned as a result – a result that I am not sure that any cream or moisturiser could achieve! Undoubtedly my treatment expectations have been exceeded – the treatments have given me a real boost and I am more than happy to pop back once or twice a year to have maintenance treatments to sustain the benefits.”
