A Man’s Guide to Cosmetic Procedures – Part 1 of 3

Man or woman, you deserve to look your best. Although we’ve noticed an increase in male patients over the past several years, the benefits of plastic surgery are still primarily enjoyed by women, including many non-surgical procedures. Let’s change that up and give men the opportunity to look great too. We’ve created a series of guides to help you discover some of the best non-surgical cosmetic procedures for men. You’ll learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know about these procedures so you can make an informed choice and take control of your look.

Today we’ll take a sneak peek into the world of “freezers”, specifically Botox and Dysport. These injectable treatments topped the list of most popular male procedures last year with more than 385,000 procedures being performed on men last year. If you’re ready to give freezers a try for yourself, contact us and schedule your appointment today or keep reading to learn more.

What Are Botox and Dysport?

Botox and Dysport are very similar. They are both comprised of a special type of toxin that temporarily paralyzes specific facial muscles. This causes the muscle to relax and allows wrinkles caused by overactive muscle impulses to fade. These two injectables are typically used to treat forehead lines, lines between the eyes, frown lines, and crow’s feet.

Surely you’ve seen jokes about Botox gone bad leaving faces with a fake, frozen look. When you come to Hunstad Kortesis Bharti Plastic Surgery + MedSpa for Botox this shouldn’t be a worry. Our certified injectors are highly trained and know how to use these treatments to create natural, aesthetically pleasing results. A frozen looking face is a sign of bad Botox, not a treatment administered by a highly trained and skilled professional.

Since Botox and Dysport are very similar, they are used in similar applications. When you come in for treatment we’ll choose the option that will work best for your specific trouble areas. For some Botox is a better choice while others may need Dysport or even a combination of the two.

Why Do Men Love Botox?

Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatment amongst male patients. Men love this treatment so much that a special nickname has even been created to refer to the treatment: Brotox. While each patient has their own reasons for using Botox, many men love the procedure for its ease. Injectable treatments take just a few minutes and the results can last for months.

What’s Recovery Like?

Recovery from injectable treatments like Botox and Dysport tends to be very minimal. After receiving treatment you can leave our offices almost immediately and head right back to life. Many patients come in on their lunch breaks and head to work right after. You may have a bit of redness or swelling, but this tends to fade quickly. Men are busy and want to look younger with minimal effort. Botox and Dysport make this possible.

Will Everyone Know?

Many male patients want to boost their looks, but don’t want to share their secret with the world. With Botox or Dysport you don’t have to. The results take a few days to appear after treatment and tend to appear gradually. Family, friends, and even close contacts won’t know you’ve had work done; they’ll just know you look refreshed. Whether you choose Botox or Dysport, it can be our little secret.
