Fine lines and wrinkles don’t always require surgery. BOTOX® is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments performed every year and it’s an excellent option for men hoping for a younger, more refreshed look.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is made from botulinumtoxin Type A, a type of bacteria that can relax and freeze muscles. When injected, it can smooth wrinkles that are the result of furrows and expressions over a lifetime (called dynamic wrinkles). BOTOX is consistently the most popular non-surgical treatment performed each year and men are becoming a growing demographic of patients. With BOTOX, you can achieve a smoother, more rejuvenated look to areas like:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- 11 lines
BOTOX can also be combined with many other non-surgical treatments like dermal fillers for even better results. For many men, the biggest benefit is that there’s no downtime or incisions involved.
Is BOTOX Right for Me?
BOTOX is a great option for men who are bothered by the appearance of aging signs and wrinkles but don’t want to undergo surgery. Many men opt for BOTOX because they want to look younger and more refreshed because they have public-facing jobs or want to get ahead in the dating world. In order to be considered a good candidate for BOTOX, you should be in overall good health and have realistic expectations for what BOTOX can achieve. If your aging signs are moderate or severe, you may need to explore your options for a surgical procedure instead. Dr. Trupiano and our non-surgical team can help you determine your best options during your consultation.
Your BOTOX Procedure
BOTOX can be performed right in our Troy, MI office. To begin, you’ll discuss your goals with our team and determine the right treatment plan for you. Then, the injection site will be cleansed and made ready. The product will be placed in the muscles using a very fine needle – most patients don’t require an anesthetic because the process is quick and painless. Once complete, you can return home with aftercare instructions.
BOTOX Results and Recovery
BOTOX takes 1-2 weeks to take full effect. During the first few hours after treatment, it’s important to exercise the treated muscles in order to help the product take hold. You should also avoid bending over or laying down during this time. For the first 1-2 days, avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area since this can cause the product to migrate to unwanted areas. After two weeks, you can return for a touch-up if your results aren’t satisfactory. BOTOX lasts for 3-4 months, after which you can return for another treatment. The result is a smoother, more refreshed look that still maintains your natural expressions and range of movement.
