Have you been noticing bothersome fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth or eyes? Feeling concerned about your changing appearance?
You’re not alone, and dissatisfaction with your appearance can result in a lack of confidence, low self-esteem, and mental health issues like depression and anxiety.
Botox for men can help mitigate some of these fears and insecurities. Let’s get into what you need to know.
How Does Botox for Men Work?
Botox injections block nerve signals from reaching out to facial muscles, which prevents the muscles from contracting. Essentially, they remain paralyzed for a brief period if time. This stunts wrinkle and aging in its tracks!
The professional injects Botox into the facial areas where the wrinkles are visible and in small concentrations. Common injection sites include the crow’s feet around the eye area, brow creases and furrows, and forehead wrinkles.
Botox works in a two-fold: it helps stop fine lines and wrinkles from forming, and it helps lessen the appearance of existing facial imperfections.
Botox is currently FDA-approved, deemed safe, and has been used on millions of patients since 2002.
What Should You Expect During Your First Appointment?
In general, it’s normal to feel somewhat anxious and jittery. In the beginning, however, you’ll fill out your necessary intake forms and provide your medical history.
During the injection procedure, you may receive a stress ball or squeeze toy to relieve stress.
The procedure itself isn’t usually painful, though it may feel somewhat uncomfortable. This will largely vary from individual to individual, as each person has a different pain tolerance.
With that said, the process is relatively quick, and there’s minimal downtime afterward.
Usually, you’re just advised to avoid touching or massaging that area for a specified period of time, but each specialist will tell you how to best proceed.
How Often Will You Have to Go?
Most people book out appointments every 3-4 months or at least twice a year. Botox won’t last forever, but it can definitely provide a cosmetic improvement.
However, the best thing about botox for men is that you’ll actually yield results very quickly- as in, just a few days! By the second or third week, you’ll notice the most significant improvements.
When Should You Start?
That’s up to you, but many people start their procedures in their late 20s or early 30s. If you start the process at this age, you can preserve maintenance.
For most, the goal is to look the “same” and unaffected by age, rather than frozen and unnatural.
Even though nobody can truly slow down the aging process, your face doesn’t have to reflect it! Don’t let your appearance or confidence suffer.
