You know that when you look and feel your best, you perform better at work, at home, and in the game. That explains why more men than ever are turning to male aesthetic treatments, like safe and effective Botox®, to improve their appearance.
At SculptMD in Shrewsbury, New Jersey, our team, led by Dr. Manolis Manolakakis, specializes in meeting mens’ unique needs when it comes to aesthetic treatments. One of our favorite ways to help men gain a naturally younger-looking appearance is with injectables like Botox.
Botox, which is made of a neurotoxin, was initially created to stop muscle spasms in or near the eyes, like eyelid twitching. During its use, doctors noticed the drug’s anti-wrinkle side effects, and soon a product for aesthetic use arrived on the market.
Since gaining FDA approval for aesthetic use in 2002, Botox remains the most popular cosmetic injectable on the market. Botox relaxes your muscles by blocking the nerve signals that control them and cause them to contract.
When injected into the specific muscles of your face that control facial expressions, it softens fine lines and wrinkles. The result? You take years off your face for a naturally younger-looking appearance.
And that’s not the only thing to love about Botox. Here are five reasons men love this popular injectable and why you should try it, too.
1. Quick treatment, lasting results
It only takes about 15-20 minutes for your treatment, but Botox results last for months. You’ll notice results gradually start to appear about 1-2 days after your treatment. You can expect maximum results in a week or so that last up to four months.
2. Do real downtime required
Botox treatments are minimally invasive and come with few side effects. Besides a few simple precautions, you don’t have to worry about taking time away from your normal activities. This means you can fit your appointment in during your lunch hour or between appointments and get back to your normal schedule immediately!
3. Worry-free treatment
Decades of studies confirm Botox is safe, which is why it’s approved for use in dozens of countries. As long as you get your injections from a trained team of professionals, like the providers at SculptMD, you don’t have to worry about safety.
4. Prevents deeper wrinkles
Current medical research shows that when you get regular Botox injections, the treatment can stop wrinkles and lines from developing or getting deeper. Talk to your SculptMD provider about the right schedule and timing to stop these signs of aging from progressing.
5. Natural, refined results
Botox offers natural, refined results that don’t look like you’ve “had work done.” Instead, with Botox, you’ll look the way you do after a week of resting on vacation—refreshed and naturally younger-looking.
We achieve this by adjusting the dose of your Botox treatment. This means you retain a few distinguished, refined lines that add wisdom but lose the creases, fine lines, and wrinkles that add years to your age.
Get started with Botox
Before you begin Botox treatments, your care provider at SculptMD evaluates your medical history and thoroughly examines your skin. Although most people can safely use Botox, people with specific medical conditions, like certain neurological disorders, shouldn’t use the treatment.
Once you’re cleared for treatment, your provider considers your aesthetic goals and the condition of your skin to determine the right amount and placement for each injection.
Keep in mind that Botox’s effectiveness relies largely on the skill and technique of the administrator. This means it’s crucial to only get Botox from experienced aesthetic professionals.
