BOTOX for Men: Pros and Cons and What to Expect

BOTOX has been a common cosmetic treatment for women for decades, but more and more men are trying it to experience the same benefits. Modern men are putting more time and effort into their appearance than ever before, and BOTOX offers anti-aging benefits that can take years off of your appearance. 


If you’re thinking about trying BOTOX, here are some pros and cons to consider that will help you make an informed decision.


Pros of BOTOX for Men 

There are many advantages for men who try BOTOX, such as: 


  • Minimized wrinkles. BOTOX smooths wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles so that they no longer form the same lines from muscle memory. 
  • Look younger. The anti-aging properties of BOTOX can take years off of your appearance, giving you a more youthful look. 
  • Increased confidence. The effects of BOTOX can give you increased confidence, which can encourage you to make positive changes in your life. 
  • Compete with younger coworkers. Many men choose to get BOTOX in order to look younger and stay competitive with younger coworkers. 
  • Improved relationships. The positive effects of BOTOX on your appearance can improve your existing relationship or help you pursue new romantic interests. 
  • Non-surgical. BOTOX is non-surgical, which means no down time for recovery. 
  • Results are temporary. The results of BOTOX wear off in 3-4 months, which means that if you are not happy with your results, they are not permanent. 
  • Can treat adult acne. BOTOX has been shown to improve adult acne in certain areas of the face. 


Cons of BOTOX for Men 

There are a few disadvantages of BOTOX that may or may not affect you: 

  • Men require more units of BOTOX. In most cases men require a higher number of units of BOTOX to achieve the same results. This is because mens’ facial muscles tend to be more firm and are not as easily relaxed. 
  • There are side effects. Most of the side effects of BOTOX are mild, such as tenderness and irritation at the injection site. More severe side effects come from an allergic reaction or from the spread of BOTOX to other facial tissues. 
  • Long term effects are uncertain. BOTOX is a relatively new treatment, especially for men, and the long term effects have not been thoroughly studied. 


What To Expect 

If you’re interested in BOTOX, you can expect the process to begin with a consultation to discuss your goals for your appearance. Then a treatment plan is created to address those goals and achieve the desired results. BOTOX will be applied to the areas where you have unwanted lines, wrinkles, and creases in your facial tissues. This may be in the forehead or around the eyes and mouth. A single BOTOX treatment will typically take about 15 minutes. 

Frequently Asked Questions About BOTOX

Will I look natural after BOTOX?

BOTOX is a natural treatment, which is why it provides natural looking results. Rather than dermal fillers or more invasive surgical cosmetic treatments that make more dramatic changes, BOTOX simply relaxes the muscles of your face so that the skin looks more smooth and firm. 


How long before I see the results of BOTOX?

It can take about a week to start seeing the results of a BOTOX treatment. This is the length of time it takes for the tissues to react to the injections and start to relax.
