BOTOX for Men
There are many myths about BOTOX, one of which is the idea that this treatment is just for women. In fact, the treatment has grown increasingly popular for men who are looking to improve the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead creases, or frown lines. These lines, wrinkles, and creases can age a man and leave permanent expression lines even when the face is at rest. BOTOX works to smooth deep lines and wrinkles and give your face a fresher, more youthful look. It is an easy outpatient procedure that allows you to get treatment and then get on with your day. Our clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina often serves male patients, including BOTOX injections to provide results without that “worked on” look.

Although BOTOX has been in use in the USA for more than fifteen years, some are still unfamiliar with the serum and the intended uses for this amazing product. BOTOX is FDA-approved for use in the eye area including treatment for crow’s feet and frown lines. At Criswell & Criswell, our skilled professionals ensure that the injections are administered correctly into the muscle in the treatment area. It is made from naturally-occurring materials, called botulinum toxin. The treatment works by temporarily paralyzing muscle activity in the tiny muscle systems responsible for frowning and squinting. Patients usually receive approximately three injections in the area near the outer corner of their eye to smooth out the appearance of crow’s feet. To treat the area between the eyebrows, patients receive approximately five tiny injections in the forehead area. BOTOX is one of the easiest cosmetic procedures because the entire process can be completed in about ten minutes, with minimal downtime. The effects may be seen a few days after the treatment will full results in about 2 weeks. The results typically last 3-4 months.
