Common Botox treatments for men
Many of the the signs of ageing that you see on your face may be improved using anti-wrinkle injections.The areas that are most commonly injected are the glabella, the area between your eyebrows, the forehead, and the crows feet at the side of the eyes.
Botulinum toxin injections work by relaxing the muscles in your face, and therefore they contract less. This reduces the formation of wrinkles, or ‘dynamic lines’ overlying these muscles. This may enable you to enjoy much smoother skin with less signs of ageing..
Many men have treatment of their forehead area because this is where horizontal creases tend to appear from a relatively young age. These wrinkles are caused by contraction of the frontal muscle. This muscle is relatively large and flat, which means the injections will need to be done at several different sites on the forehead to treat this area.
The area between the eyebrows, the glabella area, is closely related to your forehead. Anti-wrinkle injections can be applied between the brows to reduce the appearance of the vertical lines that appear here when you frown. If you are having injections to treat wrinkles on your forehead, it is normally advisable to have the glabella area treated at the same time to prevent drooping of the eyebrows. This will be discussed as part of your consultation.
Another target for anti-wrinkle injections are the wrinkles that appear at the sides of the eyes, the crow’s feet.,
Other areas that can be treated include the nose, for a lift of the tip or to smooth out bunny lines.
Finally, Botox has also been used in patients suffering from conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), or bruxism (jaw clenching and teeth grinding). Just take a look at the dedicated sections on our website to find out if you might benefit from one of these treatments.
Of course it is important to remember that, although they are rarely serious, anti-wrinkle injections have the potential to cause side-effects, and there may be complications. These will be discussed with you at your consultation with your qualified practitioner, along with a range of treatment options tailored to your needs!
