Botox and Dysport for Men
As we age, frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet, making us appear older than we feel. This can cause self-consciousness in social and in work situations. Thankfully, neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport are popular solutions to these wrinkles and lines. Botox and Dysport are both made up of botulinum toxin type A, which works to temporarily reduce or eliminate lines and wrinkles. By blocking the nerve signals that cause facial muscles to contract, these injectable treatments can smooth out the skin for a more youthful appearance.
Who is a Candidate?
Men who are interested in diminishing the appearance of forehead line, wrinkles, or crow’s feet due to facial movement can often benefit from Botox or Dysport injections. Ideal candidates will be healthy and have realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment. A consultation with one of our injection specialists can help to determine if these injections are right for you.
Whether you receive Botox or Dysport injections, the treatment steps will be the same. First, ice will be applied to the treatment area(s) to ensure the experience is a comfortable one. Then, Botox or Dysport will be injected into the targeted areas using a very fine needle. The number of injections will depend on the extent of your wrinkles or furrows.
Treatment usually takes less than 15 minutes to complete, so you can return to your everyday routine as soon as possible.
Other procedures that can be done along with Botox or Dysport injections include:
Recovery and Healing
Because Botox and Dysport injections are nonsurgical, there is no downtime required. Following treatment there may be some redness, bruising, swelling or pin point bleeding where the injections were performed. This is expected and should resolve in the next day or two. Occasionally, a headache may result and should resolve quickly. To enhance the uptake of Botox or Dysport, over the first few hours, contract and release the treated muscles by frowning, squinting and tightly closing your eyes.
Results from Botox and Dysport last about 3-6 months before a touch-up treatment is needed.
