Botox®, also known as botulinum toxin type A, is a dermal injectable which is often used to eliminate the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines across the face. It is used in both men and women who wish to reduce the signs of aging. Botox® temporarily paralyzes facial muscles to erase wrinkles and smooth skin. Botox® is also used in other ways, controlling an overactive bladder, reducing excessive perspiration, and relieving migraines.
Men benefit from the temporary elimination of wrinkles and fine lines provided by Botox®. The procedure is nearly painless and extremely non-invasive. Botox® is versatile and can be used to correct signs of aging throughout the face, such as frown lines along the cheeks, crow’s feet surrounding the eyes, lip lines, and forehead furrows. If the skin has been damaged by the sun or has lost its elasticity, Botox® can reverse those unwanted effects.
Botox® is an ideal procedure for men who desire the elimination of age signs across the face. This simple procedure can instantly produce a youthful appearance, changing the way you feel about yourself. Botox® is a good option for men who do not want to undergo a more invasive facelift procedure to erase wrinkles.
Botox® is injected to immobilize targeted facial muscles, forcing them to relax. This muscle relaxation effectively smooths wrinkled skin above the area, temporarily eliminating their appearance. A local or topical anesthetic can be given prior to the injections to minimize discomfort, though many patients feel it is unnecessary. The effects produced by a single Botox® treatment will last three to six months. At that time, many patients elect to undergo follow-up Botox® treatments.
There is virtually no recovery period following a Botox® procedure. Many patients have the procedure performed and return to work or normal activities right afterwards. Avoid rubbing the face as well as extensive exercise immediately following the procedure. If you experience swelling or discomfort, apply an ice pack to the affected area.
The cost of a Botox® treatment will depend on factors such as how many injections and the volume of Botox® needed to provide the desired outcome. For your convenience, we accept payment by cash, check and major credit card. We also offer CareCredit® financing.
