Crow’s feet. Forehead lines. Sunken under eyes. There are just a few of the ways men’s faces age as they get older. Society pushes stronger concern for aging women, but they aren’t the only ones who care about their appearance.
As aging concerns and job pressures become more apparent, BOTOX and fillers are on the rise among men. Approximately 473,354 men underwent BOTOX treatments in 2018.
At Shantique Med Spa, we provide BOTOX and fillers to men in Torrance, California, to help them get a more youthful physique. If you’ve considered the treatment before but aren’t sure if it’s for you, read on. Here are five reasons men choose BOTOX or fillers.
1. Treatments are safe
Receiving injections in your face might not sound like the most appealing procedure to have done. However, BOTOX remains the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world because it’s safe and effective.
Derived from the toxin bacterium Clostridium botulinum, BOTOX injections work by temporarily paralyzing wrinkle-causing muscles. Shahinaz Soliman, MD is an expert injector who targets specific muscles, while leaving surrounding ones unharmed — allowing you to look younger, while still expressing a wide range of emotions.
In the first couple of weeks after your appointment, you’ll notice smooth, line-free skin that shaves five to seven years off your appearance. Though the most common side effects are mild swelling and redness at the injection site, this generally subsides within an hour or two.
Do you want to correct facial asymmetry or restore lost volume? Dermal fillers might be for you. Most dermal fillers are composed of a synthetic hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in your body, and injected underneath the surface of your skin. Because your body contains hyaluronic acid, you don’t have to worry about the adverse side effects.
2. They want to look younger
The global pandemic of COVID-19 forced us on lockdown, causing many to work from home. Hours at home meant wearing PJs, grown-out hair, and more hours spent looking in the mirror.
As you put the spotlight on these fine lines and wrinkles, you probably looked and felt older.
Luckily, BOTOX can erase wrinkles and fine lines for a smoother appearance. In just minutes, BOTOX can diminish some of the most common wrinkles like:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead wrinkles
- Glabellar lines
- Laugh lines
- Bunny lines
BOTOX not only erases existing wrinkles but also prevents new ones from forming.
3. Get a chiseled jawline
Having a chiseled jawline is one of the most sought-after traits for a man. But not everyone is born with perfect genetics. Fillers are a nonsurgical way to enhance your natural bone structure for a more desirable appearance.
In just minutes, Dr. Soliman can perform a series of injections to:
- Heighten your cheekbones
- Provide a squared jawline
- Define your chin
- Fill in undereye circles
Dr. Soliman has over 12 different types of fillers to accommodate a variety of different skin concerns and needs. Fillers can be used on all different skin types and colors to enhance your natural beauty.
4. Long-lasting results
It seems everywhere you look, there’s a skin care product promising to reduce wrinkles and promote anti-aging properties. However, these brands must be used daily and provide minimal results.
BOTOX and fillers provide natural and stunning results that are long-lasting. Though the effects differ from person-to-person, you can expect BOTOX to last for three to four months. The results gradually wear off, so you don’t have to worry about your wrinkles reappearing overnight.
The effects of dermal fillers vary depending on what kind of filler and where it’s used. Most fillers last for six months to years, making them one of the most cost-effective treatments on the market.
5. Minimal downtime
It’s no secret that there’s a stigma around men being vain who want to look younger. However, this stigma is far away from the truth — looking and feeling your best is an act of self-care that provides a mega boost of confidence.
BOTOX and dermal fillers require minimal downtime, so no one will know you had the procedure done — unless you tell them. Most patients don’t describe the treatment to be painful, but rather slightly uncomfortable. Injectable treatments only last minutes, so most patients are in and out of our office in 30 minutes or less.
You can return to your everyday life immediately following treatment. We suggest avoiding exercise for 24 hours following injectable treatments to ensure you get the best results. Stay away from saunas or hot tubs, and avoid putting pressure on the treated area for 24 hours.
