When men think of cosmetic injectables at a dermatology practice, they often associate these treatments with women looking to fight the unwanted signs of aging. However, many men find that these treatments can also help them appear more youthful and masculine with strategic Botox injections throughout the face. At the Skin and Beaty Center in California, men can consult with one of our providers to learn more about Botox for men, sometimes playfully referred to as “Brotox.”
What is Botox?
First, it’s important to understand how Botox works. Botox is a brand of neuromodulators, a medication that is injected into muscles of the face to smooth dynamic wrinkles that may have formed with time. Botox has been used in many areas of medicine, and can treat overactive bladder, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), and chronic tension headaches. It also works as a cosmetic treatment to rejuvenate aging skin.
How does Botox flatter the male face?
Men who are interested in smoothing out imperfections of the skin may find an affordable solution with Botox. Instead of undergoing surgical interventions such as a facelift, men can target specific dynamic wrinkles on the face with the Botox injection. Botox is best used on:
- Forehead folds
- Glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows)
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
With just a few injections at a dermatology appointment, men can pinpoint specific dynamic wrinkles that contribute to an aged appearance. Within a few days, these areas will smooth away, leaving a more youthful look behind.
How long does Botox last?
Botox is a medication that will wear off after several months, which causes the lines and wrinkles to restore themselves. In order to maintain the results for an extended period of time, patients will need regular injections performed at the Skin and Beaty Center, typically four to six months apart. Botox cannot stop the signs of aging, but can reverse them and slow the overall process when continually used.
