BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections for Men
At Sanova Dermatology, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a popular facial rejuvenation treatment for both men and women. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, BOTOX® Cosmetic procedures performed for men increased 258% from 2000-2010, and our dermatologists have continued to see a rise in the number of men seeking facial rejuvenation with injectables. While the procedure is common in both men and women, it is important to note differences in their skin and facial muscles. When performing the injections on men, specifically, your dermatologist should understand how to customize the BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment to better help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Most men have stronger facial muscles and thicker facial skin than women. As a result, men typically require either a larger number of injections or a larger dose of BOTOX® Cosmetic to meet their expectations. Additionally, since BOTOX® Cosmetic can alter the shape of the eyebrow, the dermatologist must take the time to discuss the patient’s goals. For example, many women wish to enhance the natural arch of the eyebrow while many men prefer a straighter eyebrow for a more masculine appearance. Our dermatologists take the time during the consultation process to discuss your desired results and design a treatment plan that can suit your unique needs.
