What Men Can Gain From Botox®

You probably know someone who swears by Botox, and that’s because it’s one of the most popular cosmetic treatments year by year. Did you know, however, that it’s becoming increasingly popular among men? This is one indicator of the overall trend of men pursuing more cosmetic treatments over the years and, for men who are looking for a confidence boost and a few years taken off their profile, Botox may be the answer.

Effective wrinkle reduction

Botox and its other competitor brands (Dysport® or Xeomin®) are made from botulinum toxin type A. This means that it’s highly effective at preventing muscle movement, which can be one of the most probable causes of wrinkles over time. Areas like the forehead, corners of the eyes, and brows can be areas that are most susceptible (and noticeable). Preventing these unwanted and sometimes unnoticed movements can effectively smooth out wrinkles and frown lines.

Easy treatment

Unlike the hassle of a surgical procedure, Botox is a quick and easy injection that can take around 15 minutes. There’s no downtime or recovery period required, meaning you can get right back to your busy schedule, all with great results. Botox even has other medical uses like treatment for migraines, excessive sweating, or muscle spasms. Your aesthetician in Denver can provide a topical anesthetic if you think you’ll be uncomfortable during the session.

Discreet results

Although procedures like facelifts have come a long way in looking natural, there can still be complications and scarring that can indicate you might have had some work done. Botox, when administered by an experienced and trained aesthetician, can look completely natural and prevent any “frozen” appearance or inability to form expressions. You can even use Botox to explore your aesthetic goals for a later surgical procedure.

It can seem like a big first step to begin your cosmetic journey, but everyone deserves a little confidence. Contact FacesFirst Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation with our aestheticians who can address your concerns and recommend the right treatment plan for you.
