A Botox Guide for Men: What you need to know
It is no surprise that men juggle busy lifestyles at home and at work. Therefore, the undesired wrinkles and expression lines that form as a sign of aging can unintentionally cause more stress. That is where BOTOX® Cosmetic comes into play.
What is Botox & how does it work?
Botox is an injection treatment that diminishes and smoothes out the undesired wrinkles and expression lines. At the moment of the injection, Botox therapy allows the muscles in the face to relax.
In what areas can I inject Botox therapy?
Botox works best to treat the expression lines on the face and neck. However, Botox can also be injected into the sweat glands of your underarms and palms. Excessive underarm and palm sweating is known as Hyperhidrosis. At the moment of the injection, your sweat glands will begin to relax in the areas treated.
When will I see results?
It is important to remember, Botox therapy is temporary and therefore must be repeated on a consistent basis in order to maintain your desired image. After receiving Botox therapy the results will gradually show and best results can be seen on the 14th day post-injection.
Keep in mind:
- Botox can cause mild bruising in the area treated, therefore it is recommended to have your treatment 2-3 weeks before an important event to allow the bruising, if any, to disappear.
- Remember to not lay down 2-3 hours after your treatment and try to avoid touching the treated areas. This will ensure the Botox will stay in the area you desire.
