Injectable neurotoxins like BOTOX® helped more than 438,000 men improve their appearance in 2015*, ranking as the most popular cosmetic treatment for men in the U.S. Read on to learn how BOTOX injections can help you diminish expression lines that lead to a tired, angry appearance and refresh your youthful edge.
Tired of being mistaken for tired or angry due to wrinkles between your eyebrows or deepening forehead creases? BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can help. By stopping the habitual muscle contractions that lead to frown lines, brow furrows, and other expression lines on the upper face, BOTOX effectively diminishes these lines, helping you look better rested and more approachable.
While a few facial lines here and there can help a man look more distinguished, when creases and furrows set in around the eyes and brow, the results are often not so desirable. So-called frown lines, crow’s feet and deep brow furrows can lead to a heavy or grumpy look. If expression lines are bothering you, BOTOX can restore a smoother, more refreshed appearance to your face without surgery or downtime.
BOTOX Cosmetic is an injectable medication called a “neurotoxin.” When injected precisely into the small muscles that contribute to expression lines, BOTOX blocks the nerve impulses to these muscles, causing them to relax and wrinkles to soften. The result is a more refreshed, youthful appearance.
Results appear gradually over about 1 week following treatment and last about 3 to 4 months on average. A quick follow-up treatment can help you maintain your refreshed appearance.
When it comes to facial rejuvenation, men’s needs are unique. Men have thicker skin and a naturally heavier facial musculature compared to women, and their aesthetic goals differ–most men want subtle improvements rather than complete elimination of any lines.
Dr. Gunnar Thors and our licensed aesthetic injectors understand these important differences and have many years of experience performing BOTOX injections for male patients. Men in Algonquin trust their knowledge of facial anatomy, skilled approach, and highly developed aesthetic sensibilities to achieve the satisfying results with safe treatments.
Our licensed medical professionals perform BOTOX injections during a quick office appointment. After reviewing your goals for treatment, your provider will cleanse the treatment area and give you a topical numbing agent to enhance comfort during injections.
We prepare the BOTOX solution immediately before injection to ensure your safety and effective results. BOTOX is then injected directly into specific facial muscles, using a very thin, short needle. Injections take only 15 minutes, and you can get back to your normal routine immediately afterwards. Mild bruising and swelling are possible, but these symptoms should resolve within several days of treatment.
You can learn more about BOTOX or other options for non-surgical facial rejuvenation during a personal consultation with Dr. Thors and our skin care team. Call 848.458.8808 or contact us online today.
