At Pierre Skin Care Institute in Thousand Oaks, CA, we offer several aesthetic services to help men boost their self-esteem to levels they haven’t felt in years. Of all our services, Botox for men is the most popular because it is so comfortable, convenient, versatile, and effective.
What to Expect From Botox for Men
Arguably the best thing about Botox for men, or Brotox, is its versatility. It can be used to treat any cosmetic or medical concern caused by hyperactive muscles. The results you can expect from treatment differ from the results your father, supervisor, and co-worker will receive because everyone’s case is unique.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Pierre will give you a better idea of what results you can expect based on the physical structure of your face or the hyperactivity of other muscles of concern. Regardless of the condition you are trying to treat, your symptoms will improve for four to 18 months.
What to Expect From Anti-Aging Treatments
If you’re using Botox to smooth facial wrinkles, you can expect the results of treatment to last roughly four to six months. If you come in for regular treatments, your hyperactive muscles will “atrophy” to the point that they will cause you fewer and fewer problems.
If you receive treatment for wrinkles and sagging skin, you will see the initial results of treatment within 24 to 72 hours. If you exercise the treated muscles, you will see the initial results in 24 hours. Then it will take between 10 and 14 days to see the final results of the treatment. After that, your wrinkles will be smoothed and you will still have full range of motion in your face.
What to Expect From Pain Treatments
As with treatment for skin smoothing and tightening, you will experience the full results of treatment after roughly two weeks. However, it can take up to four weeks to experience full pain relief depending on the severity of your unique case. For example, if you suffer from mild-to-moderate cervical dystonia, it may take only two weeks to experience full relief.
If, however, you suffer from moderate-to-severe chronic migraines, it can take three or four weeks to experience symptom relief, such as blinding pain and sensitivity to light and sound. The great thing about using Botox to treat dynamic muscles causing pain is the results usually last 12 to 18 months.
What to Expect With Other Medical Conditions
As a good general rule of thumb, you can expect your Botox results to last 12 to 18 months if the goal of treatment is to correct medical conditions, such as excessive sweating, urinary incontinence, cervical dystonia, or chronic migraines. The only exception to this is when treatment is used to correct blepharospasms or uncontrollable eyelid spasms.
Botox was first approved to treat blepharospasms in the 1970s, and incredible advancements have been made since then. For example, it is now used for non-invasive lip augmentation and brow lifts. However, it can only treat blepharospasms for roughly a year at a time.
What to Expect During Botox for Men
There’s no need to be anxious about Botox for men. From the moment you walk in the door, you will be welcomed warmly and feel right at home. Check-in is quick and efficient. Once that’s done, you will be escorted to a private room and have one final discussion with Dr. Peterson Pierre regarding the results you’re looking for.
When you feel comfortable that you have effectively communicated your desired results, Dr. Pierre will sanitize the treatment area to ensure there is nothing on your skin that could get inside. Then, the injection points will be marked and the medication will be administered to the appropriate depths.
Comfort During Treatment
The needles used to administer Botox are so fine that few men ask for a numbing agent before injections. However, if you’re a little wary of needles, let Dr. Pierre know during your initial consultation. He is more than happy to numb the targeted area before treatment so you don’t feel anything at all. You should not expect to feel discomfort after treatment when the anesthesia wears off.
What to Expect After Treatment
After treatment, you are free to return to work or school. There are no activities that you must avoid. However, there are some activities you should avoid if you want the best results. For example, you should apply a broad-spectrum SPF 55+ sunscreen gently every four hours. If you’re worried about applying too much pressure when putting on sunblock, use a spray.
Protecting your skin from UV damage ensures the results of treatment don’t fade prematurely. Other self-care steps you should take include drinking plenty of water, abstaining from tobacco products, and abstaining from alcohol.
