Do you have frown lines, excessive forehead wrinkles or lots of crow’s feet around your eyes?
Then, Botox Cosmetic may be right for you. Millions of men of all skin types and ethnicities have discovered the benefits of being treated with Botox.
When injected by a skilled physician, you will still be able to smile, frown and look surprised, but without the lines that make you look angry and tired.
Where can Botox be administered?
Botox works to diminish lines and wrinkles caused by underlying muscle movement. It works very well on the frown lines in between the eyebrows (the glabellar area), the lines on the forehead and the lines around the eyes (crow’s feet). It can also be used to soften the lines around the mouth and superficial wrinkles in the cheeks.
Botox Cosmetic is also an effective treatment for migraine and/or stress headaches, TMJ and excessive underarm perspiration (hyperhydrosis).
What are the common side effects?
The most common side effect is a small bruise at the site of the injection. A small number of patients can get a low-grade headache after their Botox injections. Treatments of certain areas with Botox do have a small risk of temporary eyelid droop, however this is rare when you receive your treatment from a physician who does a large number of Botox injections.
What does the treatment feel like?
Botox Cosmetic is a quick and minimally invasive procedure that consists of a few tiny injections. No anesthesia is required. The entire procedure takes about 10 minutes. Discomfort is slight and brief. You may have a small amount of localized pain, redness and/or tenderness after the treatment.
Who is getting treated with Botox Cosmetic?
Over 7 million Botox injections were done in the United States in 2016 and approximately 700,000 of those were performed on men.
Will it be obvious that I have had Botox?
When administered by a skilled injector, Botox Cosmetic reduces your frown and worry lines, but without changing your overall appearance. Most clients state that friends and family do not notice a big change, but notice they appear more “rested” or “relaxed”. You will still be able to smile, frown and make your usual expressions, but without the wrinkles and creases that you had before the treatment.
How soon will I see a difference and how long will it last?
On average, Botox Cosmetic takes 5-7 days to take effect. However, it can take up to two weeks. The first time you get treated with Botox Cosmetic, it will probably last about 2 1/2 months. If you get re-treated before full muscle movement occurs, each treatment will last a bit longer, so that by the third or fourth treatment your results should last about 4 months. Most people need three treatments per year.
