BOTOX FOR MEN
BOTOX FOR MEN
Botox for men to soften wrinkles has always been an underrated subject, but things are starting to change! Men want to be the best versions of themselves as they grow older. This is why men have caught up to the Botox trend . Like several other things that keep them ahead of the game. Going to the gym, watching their diet, whitening their teeth, and especially having their Botox done regularly! Looking fresh is not just a matter of vanity but has now become a matter of professional survival.
And what’s best about it? It’s no longer a taboo to talk about male cosmetic procedures . Especially when the world around us is extremely selective about our appearance and how we present ourselves. The trend has caught on, from celebrities to us, mere mortals!
So what can Botox be used for exactly? For men, the usual two concerns are Botox for the face to soften wrinkles and Botox for excessive sweating.
BOTOX FOR THE FACE
Botox is a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It effectively prevents the muscles from contracting and subsequently prevent the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, since the muscles are relaxed.
The usual areas of concern in the face for my patients are:
- the frown furrow
- the crow’s feet
- forehead creases.
Botox effectively get rid of the wrinkles and lines that concern my patients, and slows their ageing process. It is a great way to solve the little issues you’re not happy about without going through radical surgery.
However, it could be that I will recommend the application of Botox in a different area of the patient’s face, to maintain the harmony and balance required for a natural look. I make sure my patients don’t look ‘fake’ or ‘frozen’, as it could ruin the synergy of their completion.
How long will Botox last? It usually differs from patient to patient. Many of my male patients come for treatment twice a year or once every four months. It’s important to go through a qualified practitioner with a good reputation when thinking of having Botox done and I have been injecting Botox for the last 10 years, always advising and taking care of what my patient’s needs are.
Botox is to be regularly maintained . The benefits on the long run is a rejuvenated and well-kept look for both your personal and professional life, gaining you sometimes 10 to 15 years younger than what you look like. Men love Botox because it’s a quick procedure, taking only a few minutes of their day and with almost always no aesthetic or downtime required. It can take three to seven days for the full effect to kick in, but once it does, you’ll feel refreshed and rejuvenated like nothing else!
BOTOX FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING
Men who suffer from excessive sweating can find it a very embarrassing issue and a very difficult one to resolve on the long run. But what causes excessive sweating?
What usually occurs is that your sweat glands are overstimulated, which causes abnormal sweating. This usually translates into sweating too much in social or professional situations and gatherings. Symptoms of excessive sweating can be seen where shirts are completely soaked and where deodorants and antiperspirants are not effective in containing it.
This is called hyperhidrosis and Botulinum Toxin Excessive sweating treatment is the scientific name attributed for Botox treatment for excessive sweating. Dermatologists usually recommend it for men who suffer from mild to severe excessive sweating.
How exactly does Botox prevent excessive sweating? It blocks the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands, by blocking your uptake of acetylcholine. Botox is injected directly into the target area (your underarm), blocking the signals that nerves send to over activate your sweat glands. It’s the same process in which Botox works for the face.
I usually inject Botox under the surface of your skin with a fine needle, with several injection points needed to stop the excessive sweating. The procedure is different on every patient, depending on how severe they suffer from hyperhidrosis. The results last for several months, transforming men’s lives as well as confidence!
