Studies have shown that men tend to develop wrinkles earlier than women, and significantly more men develop forehead lines from ages 30 to 49 compared to women. Botox® has been used by plastic surgeons in recent decades to help reduce the appearance of forehead lines, and the treatment offers several unique benefits for men.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is an injectable treatment that helps with dynamic wrinkles. Dermal fillers offer little to no benefit for these types of wrinkles because the lines form over time due to muscle contractions. Botox® relaxes the muscles, and this mechanism allows the skin to return to a smoother, younger appearance.
What Can Be Treated with Botox®?
We recommend Botox® for treating the upper third of the face without surgery. This portion of the face tends to show signs of aging first compared to the lower sections of the face. The three areas that are most often treated with Botox® are:
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Vertical lines between the eyes
- Crow’s feet
The treatment plan is tailored to your personal desires. Some men want to eliminate forehead lines yet feel comfortable with mild crow’s feet.
What Should I Expect from a Botox® Treatment?
A Botox® treatment takes about 30 minutes, so it fits easily into your work schedule. There is no downtime or post-treatment symptoms, so you can resume your activities immediately after the appointment. Botox® is administered via several injections into the muscles that contract and cause the wrinkles. Results last about four to six months, and with repeat treatments, the benefits may last even longer.
