What is Botox?
Throughout our lives, we repeatedly make facial expressions that contract our facial muscles, which can result in unwanted lines. Botox is an injectable treatment made up of Botulinum Toxin Type A. It works by blocking nerve signals from reaching the facial muscles that contract and cause lines and wrinkles. Botox can be used to treat wrinkles and lines across the forehead, between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose, crow’s feet, muscle bands on the neck, and wrinkles around the mouth.
Who is a Candidate?
Men who are looking to achieve a younger looking appearance without undergoing invasive surgery may be able to benefit from Botox treatments. Ideal candidates will be healthy with realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment. A consultation with one of our expert injectors can help to determine if this treatment can help you meet your aesthetic goals.
There is no downtime required after Botox injections, so patients can feel free to return to their regular activities. However, it is recommended that strenuous activities be avoided for the remainder of the day. Redness, bruising, and swelling may occur at the treatment site, which should resolve with time. It may take up to seven days for results to become apparent. Botox results can last anywhere from 3-6 months.
