Botox Injections for Men
Botox is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure for men throughout the United States. It’s used to smooth facial wrinkles, crow’s feet, worry lines and laugh lines. As we age, our muscles lose elasticity and struggle to relax to their original resting state. When muscles contract they wrinkle the skin. Botox treatment involves injecting a neurotoxin into the tiny facial muscles that create wrinkles, allowing the muscles to relax and giving the face a smooth, youthful appearance. If you are interested in Botox injections, call NuVista Plastic Surgery today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Petersen.
We’ll evaluate your medical history before injection. Dr. Petersen will then provide an examination of your face, talk about problem areas and discuss treatment goals. After the discussion, the doctor will suggest the most effective injection sites. We’ll then mark the treatment areas and take digital photographs in order to determine how much improvement should show post-injection. The full results can take between 4 and 10 days to appear.
During the Procedure
Botox is injected without anesthesia because it is essentially painless. You’ll only feel a small sting when the injections are made. Effects of Botox aren’t permanent and routine upkeep is necessary if you want to retain the effects. Patients typically schedule appointments every four months to maintain the best results. While Botox can treat expression lines it cannot repair sagging skin.
After the Treatment
After the Botox procedure, some clients might experience slight bruising around the injection sites that quickly fades. Normal activities can be resumed directly after treatment. Minor side effects include temporary weakness of nearby muscles and in some rare cases, an eyelid may droop. Certain patients experience a temporary headache on the day of injection. As Botox is only a temporary treatment, all side effects are also temporary.
