While men have historically taken a relaxed approach to addressing wrinkles and fine lines in the past, more and more are turning to aesthetic intervention for help. And because wrinkles near the eyes, brows, and mouth are particularly common, many men are undergoing one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today — BOTOX® for men.
At Transformations Plastic Surgery, we understand that, like women, more men want to age gracefully. We also understand that the aesthetic goals of men can differ dramatically from those of women. If you’re looking for a medical practice where you can receive BOTOX® treatments for a subtle, ruggedly refreshed look, contact our Rockford office today to schedule a consultation appointment.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is an injectable treatment designed to target wrinkles and fine lines, particularly those near the forehead, eyes, and mouth. Since it was FDA approved for aesthetic use in 2002, 10.9 million vitals have been sold in the United States alone. Our specialists have an extensive amount of experience administering this treatment to male patients, so men can take comfort knowing they’re receiving BOTOX® injections from professionals with their needs in mind.
How does it Work?
Even if you’ve taken care to wear sunscreen, moisturize, and protect your skin throughout the course of your life, the unfortunate reality is that you can still develop wrinkles. This is because many wrinkles are “dynamic,” meaning that they are caused by the constant and inevitable facial expressions that people make on a day to day basis. Because these wrinkles are caused by muscle movement, they often develop near the eyes, mouth, and forehead — undoubtedly the most expressive areas of the face.
BOTOX® works to soften dynamic wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscle contractions that cause them, softening the creases formed by their movement. As the treatment gel is slowly removed from the body, these muscles gradually resume their normal activities. Typically, it takes about four months for most of BOTOX® to exit the body; at this time, additional injections will need to be undergone to maintain the initial results of treatment.
How can BOTOX® Benefit Men?
Many men don’t seek out aesthetic treatment to look like a teenager again; most want to continue to look their age, just slightly more refreshed and energetic. With BOTOX®, male patients can soften fine lines and wrinkles in a way that looks and feels natural.
BOTOX® for men offers patients many unique benefits, including:
- Correction of common wrinkles, including forehead lines, nasolabial folds, and crow’s feet
- Quick treatments with instantaneous results
- Manageable side effects and minimal downtime
