BOTOX® is a neurotoxin with properties that restore elasticity to the skin when used in small doses. Women have been using BOTOX® for years, while men have only recently started to use it because they are becoming increasingly concerned with their appearance.
BOTOX® can also solve issues other than wrinkle correction, such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and is also effective at reducing migraine symptoms. If you are considering BOTOX® treatment seek out an experienced provider of BOTOX® in Grand Rapids to learn more about the treatments available for men.
The following are just a few of the most popular BOTOX® treatments among men:
Injections Between the Eyebrows for Wrinkle Correction
BOTOX® is most frequently used for wrinkle correction treatment in between the eyebrows to smooth wrinkles in the forehead region. Wrinkles are a result of the constant contraction of the facial muscles.
BOTOX® has a smoothing effect on wrinkles, as it partially paralyzes the muscles responsible for causing them. This partial paralysis disables the muscles from contracting so frequently, preventing new wrinkles.
In early adulthood, many people develop what are known as crow’s feet. These are the wrinkles that appear in the corners of the eyes and are known as such because they look exactly like a crow’s feet. These wrinkles are one of the leading concerns when it comes to showing age in the face, so many men seek to remove these lines to look younger and healthier.
BOTOX® can diminish these lines, reducing the appearance of age in the face. Most men who use BOTOX® to correct these facial lines are satisfied with the results, look younger, and even feel younger.
3. Injections Around the Mouth
As you age, the muscles around the mouth cause wrinkles to develop, making people look much older. To combat these lines, men often turn to BOTOX® injections.
BOTOX® injections in the corners of the mouth are popular for restoring a youthful look in the face. BOTOX® lifts the corners of the mouth and gives the skin a smoother appearance.
4. Hyperhidrosis Treatment
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that is characterized by excessive sweating to the point of discomfort and dysfunctionality. Both men and women suffer from hyperhidrosis, although the condition is more common in males.
Hyperhidrosis can be successfully treated with BOTOX® injections. While not a permanent solution, BOTOX® can help patients with hyperhidrosis for at least four to five months after injections.
5. Non-Surgical Jaw Reduction
Men who are concerned with their appearance are also concerned with the shape and severity of their jawline.
Surgical procedures exist in which the actual shape of the jaw is altered to appear sharp and V-shaped, but BOTOX® can also help with this.
With age and weight gain, the skin loses its elastic properties and appears saggy. BOTOX® injections are effective in reversing this process by targeting the masseter muscles, which power the movement of the jaw while chewing. Injecting BOTOX® into these muscles tightens up the jaw, making the jawline appear sturdy and gives it the desired V-shape without being as invasive as other treatment options.
6. Correction of Neck Bands
Neck bands are another big concern among men (as well as women) that can be fixed with the help of BOTOX® injections.
As a result of weight gain and aging, the skin on the neck becomes loose and saggy. BOTOX® injections in the neck restore the skin to its tighter, more elastic condition, making the skin look younger.
Don’t leave your health and beauty to just any doctor. Visit a physician you trust and ensure you are getting the quality treatment you deserve to feel younger and look better.
