Looking amazing doesn’t need to have a gender. Deep facial wrinkles can make anyone feel self-conscious, including men, which is why we’ve started seeing the term “brotox” pop-up.
If you’re a guy who wants to look a little younger, smoother, and more put together, you need Botox on your radar, whether you decide it’s the right treatment for you or not.
If you haven’t guessed yet, the term “brotox” is a portmanteau that combines the word “bro” with Botox – the gold-standard injectable wrinkle treatment.
What is Botox Used For?
There’s a lot of confusion when it comes to how Botox works and what it does. Botox is a neuromodulator. When it’s injected into muscles it stops them from contracting. This has a ton of applications, from preventing headaches to treating jaw pain.
As a cosmetic treatment, small amounts of Botox are used to treat expression wrinkles like forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. These wrinkles form as a result of repetitive facial movements, so by limiting muscle contraction we can actively stop those wrinkles from forming.
After the treatment, the results start showing up progressively within a week or two. Then, they last anywhere from 2 to 4 months. With regular appointments, we’ve noticed that some of our patients can wait longer and longer between sessions.
Botox is often confused with fillers, which are a totally different injectable treatment. Fillers work by plumping up the skin with a hyaluronic acid-based gel, so they’re better for wrinkles caused by loss of facial volume, as well as for enhancing the lips or adjusting facial structure.
Is Botox for Men?
Yes! Botox is for everyone, including men. If you find that you have frown lines that make you seem angry or that you don’t like how your forehead crinkles when you raise your eyebrows, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t try Botox.
This FDA-approved procedure has been around for decades. While it was initially discovered as a means to solve medical concerns, it’s been used as an anti-aging treatment for over 20 years now.
Nowadays, our skills as injectors have also come a long way. Our nurses at SEV are aesthetic experts who know how to create the subtle results most guys want, so it’s no surprise that men are flocking to receive Botox treatments.
There’s a lot to love about Botox, but here are what we consider its main benefits for most men:
- It reduces wrinkles very effectively, with results that last for up to 4 months
- It’s quite affordable, especially at SEV where we aim to keep our prices accessible to all
- No one needs to know you’ve had it
- The safety of Botox is very well-established
