Oftentimes, Botox® is viewed as a procedure for women who want to keep up with competitive beauty standards. Women are not the only ones who want to reverse the effects of aging, though. In 2013, 385,000 men received botulinum toxin injections to treat their brow wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Botox® can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, but it has other uses, too. By going to a trusted doctor, you can get discreet, safe treatments. If you would like to look younger and feel better, “brotox” may be right for you. Read on to find out what it can do to help you attain your ideal image.
What It Will Do
Although some people still put a social stigma on Botox®, more men are choosing Botox® than ever because it has cosmetic and medical benefits. Botox® is a drug made from the neurotoxin botulinum and works by temporarily weakening facial muscles. Since your muscles are more relaxed and cannot contract, unwanted lines and wrinkles soften in appearance and further wrinkle formation may be prevented. The injections can do more than restore youth, though. Here are some other benefits they may have.
It Reduces Wrinkles
Do you think your frown lines and forehead wrinkles are getting too deep? Botox® can help with that. It works best on wrinkles that have not set. Remember, men have stronger facial muscles and may require stronger injections per area.
It Gets Rid of Sweat
Clammy hands can be a nuisance. A dose of the neurotoxin can solve the problem of sweaty handshakes, slippery grips, and embarrassing underarm sweat stains.
It Alleviates Migraines
Treatments performed once every few months can help reduce symptoms caused by severe chronic migraine headaches, such as nausea and sensitivity to light.
What It Will Not Do
Chances are that you have seen injection-jobs-gone-wrong in the form of frozen faces and permanently surprised expressions. When the procedure is done by trained and experienced professionals, you do not have to worry about these horror stories. Botox® can treat many conditions, but it is not recommended for any purpose outside its intended uses although there are many safe off-label applications.
Injections block signals the nerves send to the muscles. Botox® is not a filler. Botox targets those wrinkles caused by facial animation, whereas facial fillers targets wrinkles that are always there independent of facial movement. It cannot raise or puff up any area of your skin, fix dark circles, plump lips. or correct sagging skin. Time and gravity will still affect your body. Although lines and wrinkles will become less noticeable over time, the procedure has temporary results. You must repeat treatments to maintain effectiveness.
