Botox for Men: Pros and Cons and What to Expect

Team Botox/Botox for Men

The popularity of Botox for men is growing all the time. Used to treat what are called dynamic wrinkles, the kind that arise from the movement of your muscles, Botox can greatly enhance appearance. These kinds of wrinkles come from the movement of muscles used in smiling, laughing, frowning, and raising eyebrows, the kind of facial movements we make all the time and which can cause permanent lines. 

Pros for Botox Treatment for Men

Men and women alike typically want to age without appearing older than they are. Botox can help.

  • Botox can minimize aging signs, and when it’s injected regularly, it can even prevent the formation of new lines and wrinkles.
  • Botox results are temporary, so if for any reason you’re not thrilled with your appearance, the effects wear off in under three months.
  • When injected by a skilled professional, such as your dental team, the risk of any adverse reactions is very low. 

Cons for Botox Treatment of Men

Of course there are few drawbacks to Botox treatment, but they’re quite minimal.

  • Botox treatment isn’t permanent, so follow-up injections are needed every three to four months so that your results are maintained. 
  • Because Botox temporarily decreases muscle movement, you need to be sure it’s injected by a medical professional skilled in administering Botox injections safely and precisely. 
  • There is a rare chance of side effects, such as drooping eyes or a crooked smile. 

Receiving Botox for Men at Your Dentist’s Office

Surprised to learn that you can get Botox injections at your dentist’s office? Don’t be. Your skilled dentist has advanced anatomical and muscular training of both face and jaw. Your dentist may well be the most qualified medical practitioner to provide the facial aesthetics that Botox offers, safely and well. 

After all, it’s important to know which facial muscles are best to be treated for patients to receive the preferred effect of Botox treatment. Here at Metrowest Prosthodontics, our team knows exactly where injections will work best for your desired outcome.

What Exactly is Botox?

The medical name for Botox is Botulinum toxin, which is a wrinkle relaxer treatment for both men and women will show results in between 3 and 10 days, and with repeated treatment, you’ll find new fine lines and wrinkles will be more likely not to form over time. 

Botox can also be used for non-cosmetic reasons, providing success for TMJ treatment, as well as for the slimming of the face. 

What You Can Expect from Botox Treatment

The short way to describe what you can expect following Botox treatment is that you will look more youthful, and less tired. Aging skin will look younger and fresher. 

We use Botox successfully to reduce lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and from crow’s feet, as well as to treat migraine headaches, jaw pain, teeth grinding and TMJ.
