Botox for Men: What You Need to Know
Everyone wants to look their best, including men. If you started noticing fine lines or wrinkles around your eyes, you might be wondering what you can do to regain a more youthful appearance. While men might not have been as attentive to their skin in the past, these days, it is pretty common for men to be particularly aware of their skin and general appearance, especially given the selfie-heavy social climate we live in.
How it Works
Botox injections are made from bacteria and can be injected into areas like the muscles around the eyes, between the brows, and around the lips to relax the muscles and produce a younger look and smoother skin. It works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscle, preventing contraction so they remain relaxed. This cause fine lines and wrinkles to disappear over time and prevents the formation of new ones.
Additionally, these injections are relatively comfortable and patients usually only feel a small pinprick. After receiving Botox injections, it will typically take about 2 to 4 days before results are visible, which can last up to 3 to 6 months.
The Benefits of Botox
If you think Botox can only serve one purpose, think again. Botox can have a few different benefits, depending on where you choose to have it injected. Here are the benefits of Botox for men:
Reduction of wrinkles: This is the benefit most of us are familiar with. Botox injected into the face can make fine lines and wrinkles less noticeable, restoring your youthful appearance.
Relief from an enlarged prostate: When Botox is directly injected into the prostate glands, this can reduce the size of the prostate, consequently improving urine flow.
Treatment of hyperhidrosis: Heavy sweating can be embarrassing, so if you suffer from this condition, Botox can help control perspiration by inhibiting the nerve signals that control sweating.
