Guy’s Guide to Botox® and Other Fillers


botox for menThe landscape for men’s cosmetic needs continues to evolve, with Botox® for men being front and center. Men like to look good, too, and more men than ever are now getting minimally-invasive treatments such as Botox® and other fillers and injectables. And why not? They work!  This explains why year after year, the numbers continue to rise. The desire to look younger and more refreshed, which translates to feeling better about yourself, seems to be the order of the day.

Injectables for Men

The taboo associated with men getting cosmetic procedures is now in the rearview mirror. Botox® or botulinum toxin type A has always been a fan favorite among women, and now men are helping to fuel its popularity as well. More men are getting injections, more commonly known by their brand names as Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®. Wrinkle prevention for men shows no signs of letting up. Statistics show that more men are embracing cosmetic surgery. And with prevention in mind, other studies show that Botox® clients are skewing younger.

What is Botox® and How Does it Work?

Botox® is an injectable that blocks nerve impulse and weakens facial muscles, reducing or eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. A highly-skilled dermatologist injects the substance right under the skin into certain areas, giving the face a rejuvenated look. Because there’s no downtime, it’s often referred to as a lunchtime procedure.  

What are the Target Areas for Botox® for Men?

Like women, men are targeting the horizontal lines on the forehead. But they’re also getting injections on the sides of their eyes to go after the squinting lines and Crow’s feet. Besides Botox®, men are also getting Juvéderm®, a hyaluronic acid used to smooth facial wrinkles and folds,  and KYBELLA®, used to dissolve fat cells under the skin, thereby eliminating the double chin. They’re also getting soft-tissue fillers or dermal fillers.

Reasons Men Get Botox® and Other Fillers

Obviously, the end game for both men and women is a more refreshed, youthful looking appearance. But more men are getting injectables to stay more competitive in the workplace, look better on social media, and online dating profile pictures.

How Many Injections Do I Need?

Botox® takes only about 10 minutes, and you’ll notice an improvement with your skin within 24 to 48 hours. The results can last up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. It may take longer to see the results from other injectables.  But like any treatment or procedure, the number of injections needed is customized, based on the patient’s goals and needs.  We'll discuss Botox and other injectables in more detail when you come in for your complimentary consultation.
