Botox is a great procedure to treat wrinkles and fine lines in males when done by an experienced hand such as Dr. Kormeili. There is no doubt that male Botox has to be done with great expertise and precision!
For example, Botox for men’s forehead should be only performed in combination with relaxing frown muscles, or we create a frozen look which is less than attractive! At the same time, Botox for men’s crows feet, has to be light as not to create round feminine eyes when smiling. In general, given the difference between women and men’s eye brow shape and facial muscle strength, male Botox injection sites are different. Dr. Kormeili uses your own facial expression profile to determine the exact placement of Male Botox injection sites.
Botox can be used in men for:
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Lines on the forehead
- Forehead wrinkles
- Big muscles of mastication called Masseters to slim the face
- Downward angles of the mouth
- Smoker lines around the mouth
- Gummy smile
The molecules of Botox work to stop the communication between muscles and the nerves causing them to over contract. When we make facial movements for example, the muscles are causing the skin to wrinkle, frown, and leave permanent lines. In men, these lines can form very deep wrinkles.
After the injections, it takes a few days to 2 weeks to get the final result. There is really no down-time, but some bruising may take place that takes a few days to resolve. It lasts 3-6 months and during this time, the skin has a chance to heal without the pressure from the underlying muscles.
With proper consultation and treatment, Botox can be a great addition to the rejuvenation regimen. Call Dr. Kormeili at her Santa Monica Dermatology office to schedule a consultation today to determine the best regiment for you.
