What Is Male Botox?
Botox is a toxin made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Male Botox injections can be used to treat wrinkles and other visible signs of aging in the face.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure. It involves the use of an injectable prescription that relaxes the muscles in the face.
Excessive facial muscle contractions sometimes cause fine lines and furrows to form. With Botox, men can correct these signs of aging any time they choose.
Do Botox Injections Work the Same Way on Men and Women?
Botox procedures are nearly identical for men and men. During treatment, Botox is injected into different areas of a patient’s face to restore volume.
In a male Botox procedure, large doses of Botox may be required to deliver the best-possible results. This is due to the fact that men can have larger, stronger muscles than women.
Can Botox Stop Facial Wrinkles?
Men and women can use preventative Botox treatments to combat facial lines and wrinkles in their early stages. Preventative Botox injections are generally completed in a patient’s 20s or 30s. They require patients to undergo Botox treatments at regular intervals.
Benefits of Botox for Men
The benefits of Botox include:
- Fast Treatment: Whereas a facial rejuvenation surgery often requires several hours to complete, a Botox treatment can be completed in minutes.
- Cost: Botox is usually more affordable than a facial rejuvenation surgery.
- Quick Results: The results of a Botox procedure can become visible within a few days of treatment.
- No Downtime: Botox patients won’t have to worry about downtime; in fact, most patients can resume their regular activities immediately following Botox injections.
Clearly, there is a lot to like about Botox, but the facial rejuvenation treatment is not right for all men, at all times. As such, it is crucial to meet with Dr. Azizzadeh for a full analysis before undergoing a Botox procedure.
Why Do Men Pursue Botox?
Botox is used to treat issues that can hamper their facial appearance, such as:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Banding in the neck
- Furrows in the forehead
- Forehead lines
Along with the aforementioned cosmetic issues, there are other reasons why men get Botox. These reasons include:
1. Career Advancement
The global job market is fierce. As such, older men may look for any advantage they can get over their younger counterparts. This may lead some men to pursue Botox injections in the hopes that they appear more youthful than ever before. It also can help these men to feel more confident about their facial appearance. Thus, these men can feel their best at work, which can help them accelerate their career growth.
2. Social Media
Many men want to look good on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms. Thanks to Botox, men can revitalize their facial appearance. From here, they can share selfies and other images of themselves via social media. This helps men look their best on social media and generate lots of likes and comments from family members, friends, and others from around the world.
3. Excessive Sweating
Botox can be used to correct hyperhidrosis, aka excessive sweating. Men can receive Botox injections to reduce underarm sweating. That way, men can avoid heavy sweating that causes physical discomfort, as well as associated social anxiety or embarrassment.
Men who are considering Botox can meet with Dr. Azizzadeh. At this time, Dr. Azizzadeh can perform an evaluation to determine if Botox or other cosmetic treatments can be used to improve his patient’s facial appearance.
How to Determine If You Are a Good Candidate for Male Botox
Dr. Azizzadeh requests a consultation before he performs a Botox procedure on male patients. The consultation allows Dr. Azizzadeh to determine if a patient is a good candidate for Botox or other facial rejuvenation treatments.
Initially, Dr. Azizzadeh reviews a patient’s medical history. He also assesses his patient’s facial appearance and looks for any visible signs of aging.
Dr. Azizzadeh only recommends Botox if he believes the procedure won’t compromise a patient’s health. In addition, those who have wrinkles around or between the eyes, around the neck, and/or on the forehead may be good candidates for Botox.
If Dr. Azizzadeh believes a patient is a good candidate for Botox injections, he develops a personalized treatment plan. Or, if a patient is deemed a poor fit for Botox, Dr. Azizzadeh offers alternative treatment options.
Dr. Azizzadeh offers insights into Botox and various facial fillers. In doing so, he can help a patient make an informed facial rejuvenation treatment decision.
How to Prepare for a Botox Procedure
Dr. Azizzadeh can share male Botox before and after photos. From here, patients can view these Botox before and after men photos to establish realistic expectations for treatment.
Also, Dr. Azizzadeh offers instructions to help patients get ready for Botox procedures. These instructions include:
- Stop Taking Certain Medications: Blood thinners and other medications that can otherwise disrupt their Botox treatment results. As such, Dr. Azizzadeh may ask his patients to temporarily stop taking certain medications in the weeks leading up to their Botox procedures.
- Avoid Alcohol and Nicotine: Consuming alcoholic beverages or smoking can increase a patient’s risk of facial bruising during a Botox procedure. Dr. Azizzadeh recommends patients avoid alcohol and smoking for at least a few weeks before treatment.
- Cleanse the Skin: Patients should verify their face is free of dirt, moisturizers, and any skincare products before they receive Botox injections. If necessary, Dr. Azizzadeh will clean his patient’s skin with an antiseptic and rubbing alcohol.
Dr. Azizzadeh is available to respond to his Botox patient’s concerns and questions prior to their Botox procedure. He wants his patient to feel comfortable with the procedure. Therefore, Dr. Azizzadeh does everything in his power to ensure his patient knows how to prepare for their treatment and plans accordingly.
What Happens During a Botox Procedure?
Dr. Azizzadeh details the stages of Botox before treatment. He verifies his patient knows what to expect at each stage. Dr. Azizzadeh confirms his patient understands the risks associated with Botox as well.
A typical Botox procedure requires just minutes to complete. It involves a series of subcutaneous injections into different areas of the face.
Dr. Azizzadeh determines how many injections to use and the amount of Botox required for each injection before he conducts a Botox procedure. In certain instances, Dr. Azizzadeh performs Botox in combination with other facial rejuvenation treatments as well.
Following Botox injections, patients can leave under their own power and resume their normal activities. They may experience bruising, swelling, and other minor side effects that subside on their own within a few days of treatment.
How Long Do Botox Injections Last?
The results of a Botox procedure usually last three to four months. Dr. Azizzadeh monitors a Botox patient’s results and recommends regular follow-up appointments. This ensures that a patient can maximize the results of treatment.
Is Botox Safe and Effective?
The results of Botox vary from patient to patient. Dr. Azizzadeh wants to ensure that each Botox patient achieves their desired treatment results. Thus, Dr. Azizzadeh monitors a Botox patient’s progress. If Botox treatment program changes are ultimately required, Dr. Azizzadeh can work with his patient to modify the plan at any time.
How Much Does Botox Cost?
The cost of Botox varies based on where the treatment is performed, the number of injections required, and other factors. Since men often require greater amounts of Botox than women, male Botox tends to be more expensive than Botox for women.
Dr. Azizzadeh discusses the cost of Botox before treatment. Botox for men and women is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not usually covered by insurance. However, financing options are available that can be used to help cover the upfront cost of Botox injections.
Is Botox for Men the Right Choice?
Botox for men’s forehead wrinkles and other facial flaws is sometimes the best option. To determine if male Botox for forehead and other facial issues is the right choice, a facial rejuvenation treatment consultation with Dr. Azizzadeh is essential.
Dr. Azizzadeh explains all aspects of Botox to his patient and responds to any treatment concerns or questions. Finally, if a patient decides to pursue Botox, Dr. Azizzadeh and the patient put the treatment plan into action.
Can Botox Be Performed with Facial Plastic Surgery?
Dr. Azizzadeh may recommend Botox for men. However, there can be times when men can benefit from Botox completed at the same time as one or more facial plastic surgeries.
Together, Botox and a facial plastic surgery may help a man ensure all of his facial features complement one another. If Dr. Azizzadeh believes a man can benefit from Botox and a facial plastic surgery, he can perform multiple cosmetic treatments at once.
Dr. Azizzadeh can perform a male Botox procedure in conjunction with several male facial cosmetic treatments. These include:
A blepharoplasty, also called an eyelid lift, lets men remove excess skin from the upper eyelids or under-eye bags. The procedure helps men revitalize the appearance of the eyes. As a result, a blepharoplasty allows men to make the eyes appear more youthful and vibrant than ever before. The procedure can help men correct excess skin that hampers their vision, too.
2. Chin Augmentation
A chin augmentation represents a great treatment for men dealing with a weak chin. The procedure involves the use of an implant that increases the size and length of the jawline. This implant can help men ensure the chin looks proportional to the eyes, cheeks, and other facial features.
Rhinoplasty surgery enables men to resize or reshape the nose. The procedure can be completed if a man is dealing with cosmetic or functional nasal issues. For instance, if a man has a bulbous nose tip or nasal bridge that is too high or too low, he may be a viable candidate for a rhinoplasty. Comparatively, if a man has experienced nose trauma that hinders his ability to breathe through the nose, he may qualify for a rhinoplasty.
A facelift helps men eliminate wrinkles, sagging skin, and other visible signs of aging in the face and neck. The procedure is tailored to a man’s facial appearance. It ensures a patient can achieve a symmetrical and natural-looking facial appearance.
5. Neck Lift
With neck lift surgery, a man can treat wrinkles and other signs of aging in the jawline and neck. The procedure involves trimming and smoothing excess skin on the neck. It helps men enhance neck skin firmness and laxity.
Dr. Azizzadeh may recommend one or more of the following cosmetic procedures for men be performed in combination with Botox. In these instances, Dr. Azizzadeh crafts a comprehensive treatment plan for his patients.
Regardless of whether a patient receives a non-surgical or surgical male cosmetic treatment, Dr. Azizzadeh wants to deliver the best-possible results. He learns about his patients and their cosmetic treatment goals. Then, Dr. Azizzadeh works with his patients to help them revitalize their facial appearance. Dr. Azizzadeh also evaluates his patients’ results in the weeks and months after their facial rejuvenation procedure. This ensures patients can enjoy the full benefits of their treatment.
