Fine lines and wrinkles can be attributed to various issues. Most lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the outer portion of the eyes on men are caused by continually muscle movement. Lines and wrinkles in other areas are typically caused by aging, sun damage, and constant weight fluctuation, and they can all be addressed with Botox.

Men who are noticing signs of facial aging don’t have to just live with it- Botox for men can help to soften these lines for a more youthful look, while still maintaining your masculine appearance.
The best treatment option for men with wrinkles caused by muscle movement is Botox or Dysport. Both products are made from abobotulinumtoxinA (Botulinum toxin type A). AbobotulinumtoxinA is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. The product temporarily reduces muscle movement by blocking nerve activity to the injected area.
Either brand is effective at treating wrinkles caused by muscle activity. Botox takes approximately 7 to 10 days to take effect, while Dysport takes around 2 to 3 days.
Botox and Dysport are generally performed by our BioSpa nurses or physician’s assistants, however, our plastic surgeons are available on a request basis and for an additional fee.
Treatment time will vary between 10 to 20 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated.
During your Botox treatment, a topical numbing cream will first be applied to the treatment area. Then, Botox will be injected into the targeted areas using a small, fine needle. Most patients don’t feel any discomfort, though some may report feeling a tiny pinch or pressure. Treatment is quick, usually only taking 15-30 minutes to complete.
Following your Botox treatment be sure to follow these tips for optimal results:
- Avoid strenuous activities for 24 hours.
- Avoid direct sun exposure to the treatment area and be sure to wear sunscreen.
- Do not rub or massage the treatment area, as this could cause the Botox to spread to unwanted areas.
Daily activities can resume immediately following a Botox or Dysport appointment, with the exception of working out. It is recommended to wait 24 hours before exercising. More information is available by calling our office or scheduling an appointment.
Dysport and Botox results generally last around 3 months. Treatment must be done on a regular schedule to maintain results. The longer you wait between appointments will require more product to be used for optimal results. Proper maintenance will also keep lines from becoming more severe.
