Increasing numbers of men are turning to cosmetic injectables to look and feel their best. Neuromodulators like Botox are one of the safest and most effective ways to achieve a more rested and youthful appearance without going under the knife. Botox works by blocking muscle contractions during facial expressions that cause wrinkles, creases, and deep furrows.
While the injections are FDA-approved for people 18 and older, the best time to start Botox for men is in the late 20s and early 30s, or when fine lines and wrinkles become noticeable when the face is at rest.
A culture focused on youth has spurred a demand for non-invasive procedures that shave years off the face. And when it comes to smoothing forehead wrinkles and crow's feet, Botox is one of our most sought-after cosmetic treatments for men.
"Brotox" is the number one aesthetic procedure requested by men here at Dallas Dermatology Partners. This lunch-hour treatment helps our patients look refreshed, and often much younger than their chronological age.
Botox restricts muscles that cause static creases and lines and prevents new wrinkles from forming. Botox for guys is often used to address:
- Brow lift
- Chin texture
- Frown lines or the "11's"
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow's feet
- Lip Flip
- Lip lines
- Bunny lines
- Gummy smile
- Neck banding
- Downturned smile
Botox is also effective for treating:
- Excessive sweating of the underarms and palms
- Chronic tension headaches
- Teeth grinding and jaw clenching
- TMJ disorder
Many of our male patients seek Botox treatment in Dallas because it's a convenient and fast way to turn back the clock and boost self-esteem. The wrinkle-erasing results are evident within 5 to 7 days, and the results look natural. Botox injections for men only take 10 minutes to perform by our board-certified dermatologists.
Whether treating the tiny lines around the eyes, or deep furrows in the forehead, Botox usually lasts between three and five months. Repeat injections three times a year can maintain results and keep skin smooth and wrinkle-free.
After the treatment, normal side effects include redness and slight swelling at the injection sites. Headaches are a potential side effect but are common for first-time Brotox patients. Those who take blood thinners and certain supplements may be more prone to bruising at injection sites. As always, the experience and skill of your injector are important for minimizing the risk of complications or adverse outcomes.
Botox and dermal fillers are injectables that serve different purposes. Dermal fillers are used to replenish age-related volume loss, fill in hollows, and provide contours. However, Botox is often used in combination with Restylane, Sculptra, or Juvederm to achieve desired results. Our office offers a range of fillers for men in Dallas that can complement Botox injections.
