Botox is a minimally invasive Food and Drug Administration-approved cosmetic procedure that has become popular to help reverse aging signs. Botox is a neuromodulator that injects botulinum toxin from Clostridium botulinum bacteria into the skin.
While women are the ones who popularly use it, it has also become increasingly popular among men and is popularly called Brotox. Having been administering these services for a long time, Amavi Aesthetic Surgery breaks down everything you need to know about Brotox to determine if it is a good choice.
Statistics show that men across the United States receive over half a million Botox injections annually, and the increase is mainly attributed to three factors.
Men mostly get Botox because of facial wrinkles. They also use it to treat medical conditions like excessive sweating, lazy eyes, and neck spasms. Most men get the injections in the following places for different problems.
Cosmetic specialists usually examine your issue and goals before the procedure to determine how much Botox you need. This examination helps avoid excess administration, which can damage vital proteins and nerves.
After injecting Botox into your skin, the neurotoxin suppresses neurotransmitter acetylcholine release, blocking messages from the nervous system that cause your muscles to contract. This causes the muscles to relax, reducing the severity of wrinkles and fine lines.
Results start showing one to four days after the procedure, but they take one to two weeks to fully develop.
You might experience slight swelling, bruising, and numbness around the injection site. Your doctor will recommend you avoid alcohol and physical activities for a few days following the procedure. You should also avoid rubbing your face or sleeping on it to avoid Botox migration.
The results are temporary, and you should get a follow-up appointment after three or four months.
Botox is a relatively safe procedure, but you might experience the following mild side effects.
Though rare, the toxin might spread to other body parts, and you should call your doctor immediately if you notice the following complications.
