When wanting more instant gratification than what a basic skin care routine can give, adding “Botox” or a neurotoxin to your cosmetic card can be an easy and extremely powerful way to turn back the clock. Botox, FDA approved since 2002 for the treatment of glabellar lines or “frown lines” has been used in plastic surgeon’s offices for years to soften wrinkles all over the face. Results typically last 3-4 months, and treatment requires little to no downtime making it an easy and affordable option as part of an anti-aging protocol. Since its FDA approval in 2002, other neurotoxin alternatives have also entered the market giving patients many options for greater customization. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are all safe and effective options when looking to treat deep, stubborn wrinkles and give a lift to areas that are showing the signs of age.
We often refer to the use of neurotoxins to our male patients as “Brotox”. This simple and extremely effective treatment is one men are often afraid to try for fear of a frozen face. However, treatment techniques developed over the years can very naturally soften the deep forehead and eye lines men develop as they age without giving a frozen or feminine look. You can still maintain your manhood while shaving years off your appearance. Often as men age they begin to look tired, or even develop an “angry” face. Because the forehead and brows are more dominant features of the male skull, they are typically the first areas of our face to show age, and are often the most noticeable. Our trained medical staff knows that the male and female facial structures are different and will tailor your treatment to those unique differences. As a result, you will see the lines and wrinkles soften on those facial areas without taking away from your masculine features. I encourage you to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss your concerns and come up with an appropriate treatment plan to meet your needs.
