Wrinkles and fine lines only happen to women, right? The truth is, men get just as many dynamic wrinkles as women do. Not only that, but many men are just as bothered by them as women are. That is why Botox® for men is so popular.
Understanding Dynamic Wrinkles
When you make a face, such as frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., wrinkles appear on your face. This happens to everyone. As you get older, however, and lose collagen in your skin, these wrinkles do not go away as quickly once you’ve stopped making the face. These are the dynamic wrinkles that age people sooner than they’d like. They are also exactly what Botox® for men is designed to treat.
What to Expect with Botox® Treatments
The first step is to come in and have a consultation. This is where we discuss your goals and what Botox® for men can do to help you accomplish them. When it is time for the actual treatment, it is usually a fairly short process. Botox® is strategically injected into the target area using an ultra-fine needle.
Once injected, the active ingredient in Botox® will begin to relax the muscles responsible for your dynamic wrinkles. It takes anywhere from 2-3 days for this to happen fully. From this point, your face will be able to relax, which will allow the skin to relax and the wrinkles to fade.
Botox® injections are very precise. You do not need to worry about the surrounding area being impacted. Results from Botox® for men can last from 3-6 months or more. Many men like this, feeling it allows them to control their look better than with having a more permanent procedure.
Why Men Love Botox®
There are many reasons that men love this treatment just as much as women. Some of the biggest include:
- The effects wear off, allowing you to decide if this is the right treatment for you
- Appointments are short and result in no downtime
- It can treat forehead lines, crow’s feet, and lines between the eyes
- Results can make you look younger, happier, more relaxed, etc.
- Botox® is safe and approved by the FDA
