Botox Dubai | 15 August 2021
Turning 30 brings with it a batch of changes: hangovers that last two days, sore muscles for seemingly no reason, earlier bedtimes. And one of the worst of all? Wrinkles. One day you look in the mirror, or at a too-close-for-comfort-selfie, and notice lines on your forehead you swear never existed until now. Suddenly you’re Googling ‘How to Get Rid of Crow’s Feet.’
Now, to be real, there are of course far worse changes in life than wrinkles, but the first signs of aging can feel like the most urgent thing to control in the moment. Unfortunately for us, anti-aging eye creams and moisturizers can only do so much to prevent the effects of gravity. That’s where Botox comes in.
Can Men Benefit from Botox?
Botox treatments in men have steadily become popular in the recent years. By softening deep lines and wrinkles on forehead, between the brows (frown lines or “11s”) and around the eyes (“Crows feet”) Botox can give men a more youthful and well-rested appearance without compromising masculine features of the face. The fact that this end-result can be achieved safely in a short office visit adds to the popularity of this treatment. Maintenance simply requires touchups every 3 to 4 months.
Is Botox Safe?
When an injected by an experienced physician Botox is very safe. Complications typically arise from incorrect techniques by inexperienced injectors. The correct dosing and placement of Botox is thus extremely important in achieving the desired results. Therefore, it is highly advised that Botox be administered by a board-certified dermatologist or experienced physician.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Generally, the results last about 3 to 4 months but there is variability and in some cases in cane last longer. However, most patients need repeat treatments every 3 to 4 months to maintain optimal results.
