Why More Men Than Ever Are Embracing Botox

Social media has led to an increased demand for frequent pictures that can portray aging men in an unflattering light. The advent of the selfie has increased awareness among men and women and made facial wrinkles the subject of digital scrutiny. As a result, more men are deciding that good grooming isn't enough and are turning to in-office cosmetic procedures that help them look younger longer.

Welcome to Brotox

The results are immediate, and the payoff is a natural-looking improvement that can boost your self-esteem and help you look forward to photo ops for social media, professional events and private moments. Essentially, you still look the same, but with a refreshed, well-rested and subtly younger face. If you’ve been interested in Botox, now is the time to find out how this procedure can help you. Also known as “Brotox,” Botox for men, performed in-office by Dr. Pastorek, can change how others perceive you and help you look your best.

Make sure that you choose a practitioner with a great reputation for safety and positive results. If you’re brave enough to ask around, you may find more of your buddies are trying it than you think. Here’s how it works.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox turns off the signals from the nerves to your muscles, and the injected muscle no longer contracts, so the wrinkles relax and soften. The most common injection sites are the lines of the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes and frown lines. If your wrinkles come from sun damage or gravity, Botox won’t help.

How Is Botox Performed?

The procedure is the same for men and women, as are the problem areas. Getting a Botox injection takes just a few minutes, with no anesthesia needed. Your medical professional injects a fine needle into specific muscles to minimize discomfort. After three to seven days, recipients notice the full effect.

It isn't just women who want to look good. Men also face increasing pressure to do what they can to peel away the years and hold on to their youthful looks. You can exercise and keep your body fit and count every calorie, but time and gravity eventually take their toll. After you've exhausted the limits of good eating and exercise, you may begin to consider what cosmetic dermatology can do to help you in your quest. That's when it's time to give Dr. Pastorek a call to explore your best options for Botox.

Botox, Dysport and Xeomin?

Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are all injectable neuromodulators that achieve the same great results. Dr. Pastorek will recommend one of these treatments after your initial consultation. These injectables alter nerve impulses to your muscles for the same great results discussed above. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are purified proteins derived from a bacterium known as Clostridium botulinum, and the procedure is FDA-approved as well as safe and effective in rejuvenating your skin.

How Long Do the Results Last?

The effects of Botox are temporary and typically last from four to six months. This may seem like a short time, but with such a low-impact procedure, it’s easy enough to schedule additional injections after consulting with your physician.

Your muscles gradually regain their functionality, and lines and wrinkles re-appear and require additional treatments. However, over time, the severity of the lines and wrinkles decreases because you’re training the muscles to remain in a relaxed state.

Recovery Time

Men recover quickly from Botox injections. It only takes about 10 minutes to recover following the procedure, which is generally performed in your medical professional’s office. You won’t have to take off work or wait for bruises to heal. In fact, you will be able to go back to work the same day if you want to. Normal activities on the same day are fine, but no strenuous exercise is allowed during the first 24 hours following your injections.

One of the most critical steps in getting the best results possible involves partnering with Dr. Pastorek to ensure that your healing stays on track after the procedure.
