Why More Men are Embracing Botox®

Gone are the days when you just have to settle for deep or plentiful wrinkles as you age. Thanks to minimally invasive Botox®, you can enjoy smoother skin and a more youthful appearance whenever you need a lift. While there was a time when women primarily opted for procedures to get that younger look, increasingly more men are choosing Botox as a way to feel more confident.

At Stirling Skin Care Clinic in Casper, WY, our staff has close to 40 years of combined experience, and we love to help clients reach their medical and aesthetic skincare goals.

Botox can do more than minimize wrinkles

When you feel better about your appearance, you may feel better about life as a whole. As research published in Dermatologic Surgery showed, participants who’d been treated with Botox reported significant improvements in their psychological state, self-esteem, and overall quality of life after treatment. This is true regardless of gender. And when you feel better emotionally, you’re more likely to thrive in many areas of your life, from dating and relationships to professional spheres.

Botox isn’t a big time investment

When you’re busy, the last thing you want to do is take days or weeks off for an invasive procedure. Botox involves tiny injections of the modified and FDA-approved Botulinum toxin in the target area(s), which takes only around 10 minutes per treatment. You won’t have to invest time in aftercare or pain management, either. The injections tend to feel like tiny pinches, which many people tolerate well and can be minimized with ice or a topical numbing cream beforehand. 

Botox is so gentle that afterward, you can go straight back to your usual activities. You might notice mild redness and swelling immediately after treatment, but these symptoms tend to diminish very quickly on their own. By the time you drive from our office to your next engagement, you’ll probably look as good as new.

Botox brings results 

Botox results appear gradually, starting as early as 1-2 days after your treatment. While everyone is a bit different, most people see full results within about a week. These results can last up to 3-4 months, at which point you can schedule your next treatment. 

Botox effectively treats the same facial areas for men as it does for women, including moderate to severe: 

You may also benefit from Botox for non-cosmetic reasons, such as for treatment of migraine headaches or to reduce excessive perspiration. 

Botox results look natural

You won’t look like you’ve “had work done” after a Botox treatment. Rather, you may look as though you’ve been sleeping well or better managing your stress. And while you’ll appear younger, you’ll still be able to move your face and express yourself as normally as if you hadn’t had the treatment at all. Some men prefer smaller doses of Botox than women so they can maintain lines they feel look distinguished — women usually opt for a smooth look. Your provider will help determine your best treatment plan, based on the current state of your skin and your desired results.
