Think Botox and fillers are just for women? That’s not the case! Now more than ever, men are concerned with anti-aging and their skin care routine. Men want to look refreshed and rested, without looking like they've had anything “done.” Botox and facial fillers smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce dark circles and tired eyes, relieve migraines, and eliminate excessive sweating with minimal invasion and little to no downtime.
Botox and fillers are most commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but getting injections can also treat other conditions such as dark circles, laugh lines, migraines, and even excessive sweating. Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, forcing wrinkles to relax and soften, and/or blocking nerves that trigger sweat glands. The process only takes a few minutes, causes minor discomfort, and does not require the use of anesthesia. Each treatment is customized to keep the face looking less fatigued while maintaining a masculine appearance.
Fillers, on the other hand, add volume to areas where you skin and the underlying tissues have begun to thin, creating wrinkles. Fillers restore that lost volume, smoothing lines and softening creases.
Unlike many other cosmetic procedures, there is typically little to no downtime with fillers and/or injections and any redness or bruising tends to subside within a few hours. It generally takes one to two weeks to take full effect and see complete results. It’s best to avoid alcohol and anti-inflammatory medications one week prior to the procedure to help prevent bruising. Take a day off from exercise and avoid rubbing the injection site(s) for 24 hours afterward so as not to spread the Botox to other areas.
The effects from Botox and fillers will last three to six months. As muscle action slowly returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are continuously shrinking.
As men age, they tend to lose elasticity and volume in their skin. Botox and fillers work to restore volume to soften the appearance of exhaustion and work-related stress. Our skilled doctors can help give you a refreshed, rested look without the expression lines and wrinkles. Botox can keep migraines at bay and eliminate excessive sweating, keeping you cool as a cucumber.
