Why do men prefer Botox?
With time, men are getting as interested as women in rejuvenation procedures and cosmetic surgery. More and more men are turning to Botox treatment. Men are opting for the injection since there has been a vast change in how people view cosmetic procedures today. Where earlier it was only a woman’s arena, men are today openly opting for procedures that help them enhance their appearance. Men are self-conscious and know what kind of changes they desire.
What is Botox and how will it work for you?
Botox is basically a muscle relaxant since it works on the muscles which make facial expressions like frowning and smiling. The drug is obtained from botulinum toxin A and is a purified protein. A small and diluted dose of Botox is injected into the muscle to be treated. This blocks the nerve signals to the muscles. Since the muscle does not receive signals anymore, it stays relaxed and this in turns causes fine lines and wrinkles to soften. This also prevents the formation of any new lines on your face for a while.
Your Botox treatment will be comfortable and most patients only report a slight stinging sensation from the injection. You will see your results emerge within a week from your treatment and these will usually last for about 6 months.
Side effects of Botox
Some men may see slight bruising and swelling at the site of injection after their Botox treatment. These are minor symptoms though which resolve on their own within a few days or even hours. Some may see serious allergic reaction, though this is rare. Some adverse reactions to Botox include chest pain, itching, rashes on the skin and difficulty in breathing or swallowing. In such cases, you must contact your doctor immediately.
Benefits of Botox for men
Men usually suffer from deep creases on the forehead and Botox will help soften these. You will not look tired anymore with lesser lines on your face. Heavy wrinkles on the face and crow’s feet near your eyes can also be eliminated with Botox treatment.
