Botox For Men Is More Common Than You Think

Vitality is prized among people of all genders, and those who look aged or tired may find themselves missing out on promotions in the workplace, or have trouble finding a date. Botox is a classic for a reason: it works. For decades, Botox has helped men look younger and increase their confidence on the job and in interpersonal relationships.

What Does Botox Do?

In simple terms, Botox is a chemical compound that can be used to paralyze select muscles for a temporary period. The FDA first approved Botox to treat forehead wrinkles, and today it is regularly used for deep wrinkles and lines around the forehead, eyes, nose, and mouth.  

Botox is injected in controlled amounts into specific areas of the face. Patients should only select medical professionals with a robust comprehension of facial anatomy and experience to administer Botox if they seek natural-looking results. 

What Is The Science Behind Botox?

Botox is a neuromodulator. Neuromodulators disrupt the signals that muscles transmit to each other to stimulate contraction. Repeated facial expressions (which are muscle contractions) cause wrinkles; however, when the underlying muscles are stationary, it’s harder for deep lines and wrinkles to form. Quieting these muscles also helps the whole face look smoother and younger.

Botox is gradually metabolized by the body and typically works for six months to a year. Many men fear looking "frozen" and avoid Botox; however, when an expert is injecting Botox, the results look completely natural and don’t inhibit the patient at all. Botox can also be used to curb chronic migraines and eliminate underarm sweating.

What Makes Botox Different For Men Than Women?

Men and women have distinct facial anatomies, and their bodies process Botox differently. Men often require more Botox than women because their facial muscles are stronger and thicker. Additionally, certain facial wrinkles that women commonly dislike may have a pleasing effect on a man’s face. At The Spiegel Center, board-certified physician Dr. Onir is an expert when it comes to assessing the best way to rejuvenate a patient with Botox.

Botox Treatments Are Fast And Easy

Many patients pop in for Botox during a break at work and can seamlessly re-enter their routine right after. After the skin is cleaned and prepped, injections take 10-15 minutes and are done with a fine needle to ease discomfort. Some experience mild redness or tingling, but this does not last long. There is no downtime required for Botox, though vigorous exercise and situations with excessive heat, like saunas or hot tubs, should be avoided for a week.

A Face That Looks Smoother, Younger, And More Attractive

Botox effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and prevents deeper ones from forming. Some men use Botox preventatively, by relaxing facial muscles before they can create deep lines. 

Men who undergo Botox treatments with a board-certified doctor at The Spiegel Center look refreshed and vibrant in a natural and age-appropriate way. Botox enhances the existing attractiveness of each patient, helping them look like the best possible version of themselves.
