Botox for Men in Northern VA
Botox Treatment for Men
Botox treatments are only for women, right? Not true. Many men are getting Botox to improve signs of aging in the face due to wrinkles.
Currently, one in ten patients receiving Botox is a man. Dr. Feledy understands the differences between a male and a female face when administering Botox.
Botox for Men faqs
1) What is Botox?
Botox is short for "botulinum toxin", a very popular injectable treatment. This substance blocks the nerve impulses causing temporary paralyzing of the muscles that cause wrinkles giving your skin a smoother, more refreshed and youthful appearance.
2) Is Botox for men different than women?
There are unique differences between the skin and muscle strengths in a male and female face. Our staff understands how to administer Botox on men and give you the best result.
3) Does Botox have other uses beyond addressing wrinkles?
Yes. Studies have indicated that Botox can be effective in relieving migraine headaches, reducing excessive sweating and helping with muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Botox won’t fix all types of skin problems. For example, it can diminish under-eye wrinkles but it cannot repair damage caused by the sun. In applying Botox, you have to consider skin thickness, type, and the degree of wrinkling that has occurred. This helps to determine how effective Botox will be for you.
4) Who should consider getting Botox?
Are you seeing or exhibit lines? Creases or wrinkles on the smooth part of your forehead above and between the brows (the glabella)? Then you should consider treatment with Botox. Patients from 18 to 65 years of age can receive a treatment. You don’t need to wait until you are older and age has impacted your body more heavily.
5) What is recovery time after Botox treatment?
You can resume regular activities immediately.
Caution: don't rub the treated areas after Botox treatment. This causes a migration of the Botox to other areas of the face and can result in temporary weakness in those muscles which weren't targeted. The result may be a drooping effect that you don’t want.
6) Are there side-effects of Botox?
As with any cosmetic treatment, side-effects can include allergy to the substances and the result of its placement in your body. Ask any questions with Dr. Feledy during your visit at Belmont Plastic Surgery.
Though Botox for men is considered safe, some side effects and complications can include:
- Bruising and pain at the injection site
- Flu-like symptoms
- Temporary facial weakness or drooping
