In a field where most patients have traditionally been female, more and more men are beginning to see the value of non-surgical and cosmetic surgery procedures. The effects of aging are irrespective of gender, and many available treatments and procedures can help both men and women maintain a more youthful and attractive appearance. Men with moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines can receive treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic, an FDA-approved facial injectable that can temporarily restore a more youthful facial appearance.
How BOTOX® Cosmetic Works
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a protein neurotoxin that temporarily smooths facial lines and wrinkles. It is injected into the face to minimize muscle contractions, softening lines such as crow’s feet and frown lines. Initial results last up to six months, after which repeat treatments can help maintain the effects. While BOTOX® Cosmetic is usually used to treat existing wrinkles, in some cases it can prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place.
Moderate to Severe Dynamic Facial Lines
The primary target of BOTOX® Cosmetic is moderate to severe dynamic facial lines, which appear on both male and female faces. Repeated facial muscle contractions force the skin to fold and then smooth itself out. Over time, the skin loses the capacity to smooth itself out after these repeated movements, and wrinkles form. These wrinkles remain in place even when the facial muscles are at rest. BOTOX® Cosmetic can relax the facial muscles, preventing dynamic facial lines and folds from occurring.
Other Uses for BOTOX® Cosmetic
In addition to dynamic facial lines, BOTOX® Cosmetic has many other uses. BOTOX® Cosmetic can effectively treat wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and lips, as well as bunny lines, excessive sweating, chronic headaches, muscle spasms, neck bands, jaw clenching, gummy smiles, and more.
How Men Benefit From BOTOX® Cosmetic
Men with moderate to severe crow’s feet, frown lines, or any of the above issues may qualify to receive BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment. The FDA approval for BOTOX® Cosmetic extends to all appropriate adults, both male and female. In 2014, over 400,000 men received BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments. In fact, BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments accounted for nearly half of all non-surgical cosmetic procedures that men received. Due to its incredible success rate and convenience of use, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular non-surgical procedure for men and women alike. Results are noticeable and natural-looking without creating the impression that you have “had work done,” and men can return to normal activities immediately after a short ten-minute treatment session. Men as young as their late twenties or early thirties may begin regular BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments and experience positive, long-lasting facial enhancement.
