The Rise of Botox for Men or “Brotox”: And How Long Until you will See the Result from the Treatment?
It seems this Cosmetic Treatment isn’t just for women: clinics across Europe have reported a rise in the number of men opting for ‘Brotox’.
Botox for Men make them look younger and healthier and could enhance their career prospects, particularly in industries where staff are youthful, such as advertising. Botox increase their confidence, mood and self-esteem. Those with job interviews might have an advantage by appearing young and energetic.
What is Botox?
One of the many trade names for Botulinum Toxin A, Botox can be used to treat migraine headaches, muscle spasms, sweating, urinary retention, incontinence and wrinkles.
Botox in Thailand can iron out wrinkles earned over years of facial movements, such as smiling and frowning, concentrating and squinting. In addition to the most popular complaints — furrows between the eyebrows, crow’s feet and forehead lines — women in particular get Botox injections to correct some imperfections of their lips and necks. Recently, botox has found yet another use: a “chemical brow lift” to restore the arch to falling eyebrows. (Outside the cosmetic sphere, botox is used not only for muscle control, but also to treat migraine headaches and other types of pain and to eliminate excessive sweating, or “hyperhydrosis.”)
The most common side effect of Botox is bruising. Others include headaches, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, blepharoptosis ( drooping of the eyelid ), nausea and indigestion.
When will you see a result from a Botox Treatment?
Most patients will see the results of their Botox injection begin to appear after 3 or 4 days and continue to improve until about two weeks, when the results are at their maximum. The effect will gradually wear off over the next 4 months or so. Once the Botox effects begin, the areas treated, i.e. the frown lines, crow’s feet etc., will appear more relaxed and in fact the whole face starts to benefit as patients take on a less stressed and more rested appearance. It’s subtle but noticeable – people will think you look “better” but they’re not sure why.
Many botox initiates will claim that they see the effect, as soon as the fluid is injected into their lines. This is merely an optical illusion caused by the plumping effect. The average female patient will require 3-5 days to appreciate the blockade. A male patient who has thicker skin and stronger muscles may take up to 10 days. It is my early impression that dysport’s blockade is slightly quicker, but I have only started with a small set of patients, in order to evaluate this newer form of Botox.
