The secret’s out. Men age too! If you are a guy who’s concerned about severe forehead creases, deep frown lines, or bothersome Crow’s feet, you’re not alone. More and more men are becoming familiar with the anti-aging treatments available to them, and they’re not turning back. In 2016 alone, more than 453,281 men received Botox® injections.
Botox® uses small doses of botulinum toxin to paralyze nerve cells in predetermined facial areas resulting in a smoother, healthier-looking appearance. The procedure is virtually pain-free and requires no downtime. It’s easy to see why Botox® is becoming highly-popular among men seeking to reverse the signs of aging.
Before you jump on the boat, there are a few facts you may want to consider. Let’s take a look to see if Botox® may be beneficial for you.
#1 It’s the perfect “lunchtime” procedure
In a hurry? No problem. Schedule your Botox® appointment and be in and out of the office in as little as 15-minutes. Afterward, go about your daily routine as normal. At Levy Dermatology, you’ll receive your treatment from a skilled Botox® injector to minimize discomfort.
#2 You won’t have an overworked look
Results from Botox® are completely natural and gradually occur starting about 3-4 days post-treatment. Over the course of the next week, you’ll begin to see a well-rested, younger version of yourself.
#3 Brotox addresses facial features specific to men
Men tend to have larger muscles than many women. When it comes to taming strong facial muscle, the amount of Botox® may need to be adjusted accordingly. At your initial consultation, Dr. Levy will perform a full facial evaluation to determine the exact amount of Botox® needed and where.
#4 It can be used for preventative purposes
Even if you don’t currently have lines, wrinkles, or folds in the face, Botox® can be used as a preventative measure to limit their development. Many men opt to begin Botox® as early as their mid-30’s.
#5 Botox® offers valuable, long-lasting results
Results from non-surgical Botox® treatments vary on a case by case basis. However, you can expect the treatment to last upwards of 3-6 months. Botox® is safe and effective for softening cosmetic concerns as needed.
