Facial masculinization

The facial masculinization is a treatment that consists in adding potential to the areas of the mans face, to obtain a more masculine effect. A strong jawline, a prominant chin and defined cheekbones, are physical characteristics of the stronger bone structure in a man than in a woman, due the action of the larger proportion of testosterone in a man.

To potentialise the cheekbone area, to have a more defined jawline with sharp angles, and also have a more muscled profile, we use hialuronic acid (AH) for a more attractive chin, as used for other facial treatments, but in this case only, the hialuronic acid to be used would need to have special characteristics. As we are looking to potentiate the anatomical areas that are prominent and that are really bones, the AH needs to be stronger, more resistent and as a consequence will last longer.
