Botox for Men
Botox for Men, or “Brotox”, has become increasingly popular in the past ten years. Since 2010, there’s been a 20% increase in the number of men getting plastic surgery in general. Most of them getting minimally invasive procedures like injectables or Juvederm fillers, which can reduce wrinkles as well as add volume to areas like the lips or temples.
Botox is a remarkable cosmetic injectable made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. This toxin temporarily paralyzes the tiny muscles responsible for frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet. With these muscles subdued, the face receives a non-invasive, non-surgical “liquid lift”. Restoring vitality, youthfulness and attractiveness. Colleagues and friends may remark that you look well-rested and at peace, without being able to quite put their finger on why.
Dr. Capizzi will administer Botox using a very fine needle that minimizes any discomfort. The entire procedure takes around 20 minutes and can be performed over a lunch break, with an immediate return to normal activity afterwards. Some clients may experience minor irritation at the injection site, but the majority find receiving Botox a swift, painless process. Results become visibly pronounced within a few days, and typically last from 4-6 months.
