Why Men Should Get Botox

Your face is the first thing that everyone notices about you. If you look good, you will feel great.

In 2014, more than 385,000 US men received Botox injections. That’s an increase of 310% over the past decade. As and more men these days are turning to Botox treatment to help them look younger and feel more confident, this may be a treatment you should consider.

What is Botox?

Men getting botoxBotox is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It can erase the effects of time by relaxing the tiny contracting muscles which gradually cause wrinkles and fine lines. Once these muscles are relaxed, signs of aging are greatly diminished or disappear altogether.

Botox is a relatively simple procedure. Your physician will tell you to squint and scrunch up your face so he/she can assess the best places to inject the Botox. Most often, it will take three injections to your forehead. They are very small shots made with a 30-gauge needle.

The whole procedure should be completed within 10 minutes. You may experience minor, temporary bruising at the site of the injection. You can easily disguise this with concealer. Although you may be advised to remain vertical for a few hours following the injections – some doctors think that lying down can cause the Botox to move to undesired areas –you can resume your normal activities immediately.
