Give Your Face a Younger and Smoother Look with Botox
For younger, smoother-looking skin, there’s BOTOX Cosmetic. This FDA-approved facial treatment has been used for over 15 years to help men like you regain confidence in their appearance. If you want to smooth out moderate-to-severe crow’s feet or frown lines, then Botox (some call it Brotox) is for you. Botox offers men a painless, easy and affordable way to eliminate wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, entirely without surgery. With no downtime and an easy in-and-out appointment, you can have your treatment and get back to work right afterwards.
How does Botox work?
Our physician or licensed nurse injects Botox directly into your facial muscles, effectively blocking the nerve impulses that contract your muscles when you laugh or frown. This relaxes your muscles, easing out those lines that have formed over time on your forehead, between your eyebrows, and around your eyes. After three to five days after treatment, you’ll typically see significant improvement. Repeat treatments are recommended every three to four months, however with time many patients see their wrinkles improve because their muscles become trained to stay in their relaxed state.
How Safe Is Botox?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a safe and proven method of eliminating wrinkles around the forehead and between the eyes. It’s been approved for cosmetic use since 2002. In fact, it was the first botulinum toxin to gain FDA approval for moderate to severe glabellar lines. Since then, it’s been used by millions of men and women in the United States who want to look as good as they feel. Botox is safe, but results vary based on certain factors, including your skin condition, lifestyle and age. It is ideal for frown lines and crow’s feet but not recommended for the lower portion of your face. If you want to address wrinkles around your mouth and nose, Juvederm fillers are a better solution.
Benefits of Botox Injections
Surgery might be an option for some, but FDA-approved Botox can help many men avoid unnecessary procedures. Our clients benefit from:
- Quick and easy sessions
- No downtime and instant recovery
- Fast results, typically within a week
Frown lines happen naturally, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. Botox injections retrain the nerves in your face to relax using a chemical that prevents them from contracting. Instead of tightening every time you frown, your nerves will gradually learn to relax. The good news is that you don’t have to wait to see results. In just three to five days, you’ll already notice a difference.
You’ll see the best results in one to two weeks after your initial round of injections, and you’ll be able to enjoy smoother, fresher-looking skin for up to six weeks. At that point, we recommend that you come in for another round of treatment. Over time, treatments will be less frequent because your nerves will adapt to the chemical changes taking place.
Juvederm, Volbella & Other Fillers
Juvederm™ is an easy way to rejuvenate your face without undergoing an actual facelift. This FDA-approved facial filler is used to fill in lines and creases around your mouth and other parts of the lower face where Botox is less effective. Particularly for men, it can also be used to fill the hollow area under the eyes, whereas many women prefer it to create fuller lips. In the image shown, the male patient received one syringe of Volbella XC under both his eyes. Results are instant but improve over 4-6 weeks. Juvederm and its variations Volbella, Vollure, and Voluma can also be useful to fill in scars.
There are many benefits of facial fillers over other treatments. Injectables are non-invasive and much easier to administer than facelift surgery. And the results are surprisingly long-lasting. One filler treatment can last you up to a year and is obviously much less expensive than surgery. In addition, it allows you to experiment a little bit more with the look you’re trying to achieve, since it is not a permanent one.
