All About BRO-TOX

BOTOX is beloved for its simplicity, convenience, minimal downtime, and effective results. Given in quick injections, this treatment temporarily weakens the muscles that are causing wrinkles to be visible. A weakened muscle can’t contract, and therefore it can’t create a wrinkle. 

Why Men Love BOTOX

The majority of men want to look their youngest and best. BOTOX is excellent for addressing the following areas:

  • Vertical “worry” lines between the eyebrows
  • Horizontal forehead lines 
  • Crow’s feet
  • Smoker’s lines around the mouth
  • Neck bands
  • Lower eyelid crinkles
  • Asymmetrical eyebrows

What’s the Difference Between BOTOX for Males and Females?

Placement of the injections will sometimes differ because of where the male facial bones are placed, but the most significant difference in male BOTOX is how much is used. Because men’s facial muscles are often stronger than females’ and have more mass, more BOTOX tends to be used. 

Preventative BOTOX

Preventative BOTOX is when younger men choose to have BOTOX injections to slow or stop future wrinkles from forming before they can become too severe. Many men come in to get preventative BOTOX when they realize where the majority of their “muscle action” is.

What to Expect During a BOTOX Treatment

To minimize discomfort as much as possible during your BOTOX injections, we use numbing cream and a facial vibrating tool. Your injection placement will be based on where your facial muscle strength is, as well as your areas of concern. The treatment only takes about 15-20 minutes, and you’ll be able to return to your normal activities afterward.

When BOTOX is administered by a highly trained, experienced, and skilled doctor who understands the structure of the face and the proper amount to inject, BOTOX achieves naturalistic, effective results. You’ll never need to worry about looking “frozen” or unnatural when you work with Dr. Parakh or a member of her team. 

Side Effects

BOTOX may cause a headache or some bruising and swelling at the injection sites. Ice can be applied in these cases. Some patients are concerned about eyelid drooping, but this condition is very rare if you’re working with a board-certified professional. However, if this does happen, it’s only temporary and can be corrected by prescribed eyedrops.

Results 

Early results will be apparent a few days after your treatment, but final results will appear after 2-4 weeks and can last up to 3-4 months. When the results begin to subside, you can have a touch-up treatment to maintain your results. Although BOTOX isn’t permanent, the duration of the results tends to last longer after repeated procedures.

After BOTOX Injections

Although BOTOX doesn’t require any real downtime, we do recommend taking it easy the remainder of the day following injection. You may want to take the day off from work and avoid the following:

  • Lying down flat or positioning your head downward for four hours
  • Massaging the treated area or applying pressure in the area for 24 hours
  • Consuming alcohol for 48 hours
  • Anything that makes you hot or sweaty (exercising, saunas, hot tubs, etc.) for 48 hours
  • Consuming blood-thinning medications or supplements for 48 hours
  • Undergoing facials of any kind for one week

Who Makes the Best Candidate for BOTOX?

  • Those who are over the age of 18
  • Those who want to non-surgically correct facial lines and wrinkles
  • Those who are not allergic to ingredients in Botox
  • Those who do not have any active skin infections
  • Those who do not have any neurological conditions
  • Those who understand what BOTOX can do
