What Is Botox?
Botox is a neuromodulator. The facial injection-based procedure uses a toxin known as the botulinum toxin, which prevents muscle movement and improves appearance. The most common use for Botox is to smooth wrinkles and fine lines that exist on the face. Once heavily stigmatized, men everywhere now use Botox to achieve a younger look and feel on their faces. Dr. Douglas Steinbrech is a board-certified plastic surgeon in LA specializing in helping men achieve their best look and to feel more confident. Botox is one of the most common procedures to counteract the effects of aging.
When you are younger, frown lines and wrinkles disappear when your face is rested, but as you age, they become more permanent in your facial expressions. Eventually, as a man ages, these lines and wrinkles will appear even when you are making no facial expression. Neuromodulators are often used to tackle this. No neuromodulators is more widely regarded or clinically proven than Botox. Following FDA approval in 2002, Botox transformed the neuromodulator industry. Its quick and easy procedure is heavily alluring for men looking to reverse the effects of aging everywhere.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox works via injection. During a consultation, you will determine with your surgeon what areas of the face need attention. Small botulinum toxin injections are made to the necessary areas during the procedure.
Once administered, the toxin works to relax facial muscles and to keep them “at rest.” These facial muscles are the culprit of frown lines, crow’s feet, and facial wrinkles that cause men to look older than they are. Botox is a safe and effective way to feel and look younger. It’s always best to seek a specialist who sees male patients in their practice.
How Long Will Botox Last on Men?
The longevity of Botox treatment for men may vary depending on several factors, including the dosage and the area of treatment. On average, Botox can last for 3 to 6 months, after which further injections may be necessary to maintain the desired results. The duration of the effect may differ from person to person. The temporary effect of Botox is due to its mechanism of action. Botox works by blocking nerve signals that cause muscle contractions, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles. However, the body eventually breaks down and eliminates Botox, which leads to the gradual return of muscle activity and the reappearance of wrinkles.
Recovery Time for Botox
The best part about Botox? It is virtually painless and comes with no recovery time. Patients can resume normal activities immediately following the procedure. Even better, the results are instant and improve over time—the effects of Botox usually last around three to four months before needing to be re-upped. Over time, however, your facial muscles may train themselves to stay at rest and contract less, meaning you can eventually go longer between injections.
