Botox injections are best known for using botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze muscles.
These injections are known for their ability to reduce and prevent the appearance of facial wrinkles. Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for both men and women.
The treatment has been improving the appearance of deep dynamic wrinkles for years. Men can reverse years of repetitive facial movements with a simple in-office procedure.
How Does Botox For Men Work?
Botox works by blocking communication between the nerves and muscles. The neurotoxin temporarily relaxes muscles causing wrinkles to soften and ultimately restoring a more youthful appearance.
Many men report feeling and looking years younger with a single Botox procedure.
Am I A Good Candidate For Botox?
You could be a good candidate for Botox if you have wrinkles around the eyes or forehead. Treatments are most effective for men that have lines and wrinkles as a result of excessive frowning, squinting, or other facial expressions.
Botox also makes a great treatment option for men who would like to prevent wrinkles from happening in the first place. Because you’ll be unable to make severe muscle contractions, wrinkles can be prevented before they even appear.
How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?
Your Botox procedure will only take minutes. Prior to treatment, your licensed injector will cleanse the treatment area, mark injection locations, and possibly apply a topical anesthetic or ice to keep you comfortable.
During the, at most, 10 minute injection process, your provider will place the Botox injection at precise locations for natural-looking results. Most men are able to see initial results in as few as two days.
Some men have stronger facial muscles and may not see any effects until one week post-treatment.
Is There Any Downtime?
Botox treatments have very little or no downtime at all. Most men can return to almost all activities without restriction directly after their procedure.
You should avoid lying down or rubbing the treatment area for up to 4-hours. Side effects are typically short-lived but can include slight redness, swelling, or tenderness at the injection site.
